My family will be in South Beach for 10 days over the Holidays. We would like to stay at Loews but this price seems rather high. Does anyone know if this is the going rate at Xmas? Also I would welcome any suggestions on reserving the tower rooms verses the new building. The tower was suggested in order to accomodate our family of 5. The $599 price tag is for a standard room not a suite. Lastly, is there enough to keep teens busy for 10 days? They do love to swim and shop!
