I had a hard time deciding between three or four stars...all of my guests probably found it to be a four or five star trip but the stress I went through definitely deserves the three star rating.
I was lucky enough to marry the love of my life at Loews this year. It is a gorgeous venue that manages to keep the historical art deco feel while still seeming very modern. I also couldn't get over how friendly everyone was; from the front desk to the maids, everyone seemed genuinely excited for me and tripped pver themselves to make our time special.
The one thing that turned this event from a happy event into a stressful one was the woman who was in charge of our event, Nickoletta. She,like everyone else, was very sweet and very lovely, but she was incredibly disorganized and bordering on incompetent.She was supposed to be helping with the planning and instead I found myself having to remind her several times of different things and even then they wouldn't get done. A front desk manager had to arrange for my bridal suite and my parent's room...they weren't in the system and obviously hadn't been arranged for ahead of time. She created more work and stress for me at every turn, and while everything was eventually worked out, I would be very careful in using Loews (or maybe just Nickoletta) for your events.
I would love to stay here again for a vacation, but I'll be taking my events elsewhere..
