A co-worker and I were attending a trade show at the GWCC at the end of January. We had booked our reservations through the show. We arrived around 3:30 to a very busy lobby. (Lots of groups checking in, some problem with a key card) Daniel Sturdevant came over to the front desk and offered to help us check in. My check in was un-eventful, however, my co-worker's reservation was not in the system. (We blame this snafu on the trade show not the hotel). Daniel quickly got a room for my co-worker, took a copy of our hotel confirmation from the show and said he would get to the bottom of it. There was a very refreshing sweet water with lime on ice in the lobby--delish after a day of flying.
We went up to our rooms to drop off the luggage. My room was on the front side of the hotel so the view wasn't that great..but it wasn't like I was there for vacaction so that was fine. The bathroom was huge--a big separate glass shower, a full sized tub, a large vanity..plenty of towels. They had a large assortment of Lather soaps, shampoos and creams. (I just went to Lather.com and bought some full sized products yesterday!) My co-worker is a big hockey player...he liked the smell of the shampoo and soap so much he confessed to using the conditioner in his hair too! The bathroom was very clean (I have been known to buy a bottle of Clorox clean up to spray on surfaces of suspect hotel bathrooms--there was no need here!)
The bed was big and comfortable..the pillows were too puffy for me...so I slept without one..but the mattress was so comfy..I didn't really miss the pillow.
That night, I had an appointment at the Spa for a 1 hour fusion massage. Sue was great!
We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant..the food was fine...it was expensive around $40 for 2 people for breakfast is steep--but they did give you a lot of food...you could get a buffet or eggs cooked to order.
The bartenders in the bar were helpful in suggesting restaurants for dinner and the valets were always happy to get you a cab. Drinks were expensive...$12.00 per cocktails with brand name liquor.
We discovered that neither of us had packed an umbrella and the hotel store was sold out of them. The girls in the store advised us, that we could borrow umbrellas from the front desk. We were happy not to have to buy another umbrella and bring it home to our 'umbrella collections'.
We spent 3 nights at the Loews and had a great time. We agreed it was a really nice hotel and the midtown location was convenient enough to downtown that we didn't feel like we were out in the boon docks.
