Amazing stay!
We arrived at the Hotel very early! Alex checked us in and he was super helpful! We asked to keep our bags there because we were so early! Alex found us a room the was available so that we didn’t have to wait! 🤗 We were so happy! We went to the beach where the Hotel had beach chairs and there were servers walking around taking drink and snack orders! AMAZING! The hotel also had 30min free Paddleboarding and banana boat rides! We had an amazing time at the Loews Hotel!

Mixed review
Fantastic location. Comfortable bed. The hot items of the breakfast buffet were cold both mornings we ate there. Room is very small but clean. We used municipal parking lot nearby rather than at the hotel. Only $20 per day as opposed to $48 at the hotel. Pool is not in this hotel but you are across the street from Lummus park beach.

Very good 8.0
A few surprises, but overall A+
Nicely renovated from my last stay....location is great. New from my last stay is a buffet breakfast, I would expect a bit more than runny scrambled eggs for the "resort fee" of $20+ per night. Also be prepared to pay nearly $50 per day for valet parking, or a block and a half away is public parking on 12th and Collins for $20/day. Overall, I enjoyed the stay, staff is friendly and helpful with great Mojitos!
