“Great Hotel”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

Right on the beach with most rooms having a sea view this is one of the best hotels to stay at. The renervations have made the hotel really stunning. Love the pool area,but very pricy.The only thing that was confusing and strange was the fact that we couldnt find the beds...found out later that they actually fold down from the wall!!

I like many things about Loews MB. The staff is exceptional in terms of their readiness to assist, cordiality, and professionalism. The room was very comfortable with a nice view of the ocean. The lounge, pool and beach areas are excellent. Proximity to South Beach could not be better. My sole whine is that when you pay a pretty penny for a room, extra charges for internet and the fitness center are a grating dissonance to what otherwise was a very favorable experience.

Dear robert_h60795,
Thank you for such a kind review. We appreciate your feedback of the hotel and are happy to hear that you enjoyed the property, its close proximity to all that South Beach has to offer, our staff and the general warmth and quality service that is standard at the Loews. We feel our employees best represent what it is we offer at our hotel, that is a four-diamond and MORE attitude towards exceeding guest expectations. In regards to the extra charges you mentioned, our hotel does not charge a resort fee like many other hotels in and around Miami Beach. We like to provide our guests with options so they are not charged for additional amenities they are not planning to use. We also pride ourselves on providing competitive rates and various options instead of assuming all guests want the same thing out of their stay. Personalization is key at Loews Miami Beach. We are glad that you had such an enjoyable time and we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Happy Holidays!

Stayed over Art Basel weekend and paid $620 a night even though was supposed to get 50% off room for 2 night stay. Arrived at hotel and had to interrupt 4 valets who were too busy talking to come help with luggage and park the car ($42 a night!). Front desk personnel pleasant although did not give any info about hotel and amenities. Bellman (Junior) was great and even filled our ice bucket.
Our room had partial ocean view with no balcony and view of other high rise Sobe hotels blocking city view (outrageous considering price we paid for room). It was small and uninspired. Bathroom extremely small with no bathtub and a small shower whose badly tiled floor was sinking. Toiletries provided were not of 4 star hotel quality - can get better at a Holiday Inn. The room was clean and kept clean by housekeeping staff which is only good thing I can say about this cramped room. They forgot to give us new toiletries and soap though when our room was cleaned. Also pretty stingy with towels provided. Internet at $14.95 a night absurd when paying over $600 a night for a room. We had a bad experience with concierge "Danny" who was rude and snotty when we asked about Art Basel tickets. At every 4-5 star hotel I've ever been to the concierge goes out of his way to obtain tickets for the guests. But we were rudely told the hotel does not provide this service and we had to get the tickets ourselves. Considering this was Art Basel weekend I expected the hotel to try a little harder. What is the need for a concierge (there are three) who can't be bothered to help a guest obtain tickets to the show they are doubling their rates for? Danny was also asked to have a newspaper we ordered while reserving our room online delivered but he forgot and I had to ask front desk 3 times over two hour period to get the paper delivered. Didn't eat breakfast because was told there would be a 30 minute wait eventhough saw empty tables.
Pool looked nice although did not have chance to use it. Front desk Doris was helpful in getting us newspaper we had ordered although I had to insist on getting one when she tried to tell me after I waited 2 hours for the paper that they were sold out. When checking out however had to wait while the 3 receptionists were busy talking to each other and only stopped when I put our key cards on counter and told then I didn't have time to wait until they finished their personal conversation.
We definitely will not stay at this hotel again. For what we paid the Ritz Carlton has nicer rooms and better service and amenities for same price.
And please kill the frigid airconditioning in the halls - it was unpleasant walking to our room and in the lobby.
I gave this hotel a three stars because that's all Loew's Miami Beach deserves. There are nicer hotels for the price in SoBe

If it's growling Harley's, screaming Yamaha's, fierce Ferrari's, blaring horns, and all night sirens you're after, then look no further than the Loews Miami Beach. The all night street partiers outside your window are merely a low key, minor nuisance compared to the major decibel contenders.

This hotel is pre sound proof doors and windows, and even from the 18th floor you'll feel like you're sleeping on the street, right down there with the real SoBe's.

After a sleepless night it might not bother you that the maids start slamming doors and enjoying a hearty laugh at 8am on the dot; after all, you were lying in your bed awake anyway. The bedroom doors at this Loews don't close, they SLAM, and the sound reverberates up and down the hallways seemingly without stop.

The beach side of the hotel is pretty, and the pool area is potentially pleasant, but it's so jammed up with chairs and people that it's tough to enjoy.

The food is typical hotel fare, but you might be so tired from your sleepless nights that you won't have the energy to go anywhere else to eat.

The location and setup of this hotel is amazing. RIGHT on the beach, with direct access. 24-hour pool. Lounge with live bands. Attached spa. VERY prompt and courteous service. Rooms with wonderful views. Location walkable to Lincoln and other locations. However, you'll pay for every part of this.

Not saying that's a bad thing - you do get what you pay for (Except for the gym part; $10 for a rather lousy gym in the spa was the only thing that would detract from staying here again..)

The minibar prices are obscene as expected, drink prices even for beer downstairs are through the roof. Surprisingly, mixed drinks were about average.

Other than the cost, it was exemplary and I'd go there again in a second.

Room Tip: Use the check-in upgrade option vs buying an upgraded room at check-in. It's more cost effective...

"You get what you pay for" is the perfect phrase for this hotel. The level of service is absolutely wonderful, from the bartenders, to the person who brings you room service. The salt water pool is open 24 hours a day, and you can swim on the beach at 1am in the moon light. The rooms are spacious, and the bathrooms are modern, sleek, and surprisingly roomy. The hotel has a beautiful atmosphere.

This all said, you will be paying over 20 dollars for a hamburger (This is at the bar, if you get it through room service . A can of Corona (no glass by the pool) and a 8oz Pina Colada came to over 20 bucks by the pool. Even the ice cream shop is expensive.

It is South Beach, nothing is cheap. The Loews is no exception. If you have the means, go for it.. you will not be sorry. If you are budgeting your trip, this might not be the place for you to stay.

My friends and I were in South Beach for Thanksgiving week and decided to give the Loews a try. It's a beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff; the concierges were especially helpful. The rooms were big enough. What we found lacking was the feeling you were in the Art Deco South Beach area. We have stayed at the Delano, Mondrian, and The Betsy before and they were more to our liking. Don't get me wrong, the Loews is great and in a great location. But its a big chain hotel amongst a bunch of cool boutique hotels.
