Loews Miami Beach Hotel cuts an iconic silhouette on South Beach's skyline
With a brand new look and updated culinary offerings, Loews Miami Beach Hotel is an enduring favorite.
The Loews Miami Beach Hotel cuts an iconic silhouette on South Beach’s skyline. Located on the oceanfront just a block south of Lincoln Road, its Art Deco-style tower crowns the 790-room resort making it immediately recognizable from near and far. The sprawling, family-friendly property—one of the largest on Miami Beach—recently completed a $50 million renovation with a luxurious and sophisticated new look across its lobby, guestrooms, pools area and meeting spaces, as well as updated cocktail and dining options. With stellar hospitality at the forefront of any Loews experience, there’s never been a better time to check-in and check out what’s new at this beautiful seaside resort.
This reimagined property takes on a dazzling Art Deco aesthetic with noble materials in a glittering palette of amethyst, granite and marble. The lobby area features terrazzo floors inlaid with a subtle sunburst pattern and an appropriately MiMo-inspired overhead chandelier with the elevator and escalator bank shrouded in a curtain of brass piping. Reception desks are solid blocks of marble before a monumental organic, crystalline wall installation “Stardust” by Chicago-based artist Sarah Raskey whose work appears throughout the hotel.
This aesthetic and color palette extends to the newly redesigned guestrooms where Raskey’s murals serve as architectural headboards. Rooms are awash in silvery shades of lavender, brightened and modernized with hardwood floors, ecru paint and tidy bedframes. The hotel is also home to 65,000 square-feet of redesigned flexible meeting and conference space including the lavish Americana Ballroom with waterfall chandeliers and glittering ocean views.
The hotel’s flow-through lobby opens up to Preston’s Market, as well as the new Bar Collins and Miami Joe Coffee Co. All of Loews food and beverage destinations are infused with what they call “Flavor Miami,” featuring items from local craftsmen and restaurateurs. Preston’s is the hotel’s signature breakfast spot where you can enjoy either an a la carte menu or buffet including a made-to-order omelet station. The restaurant’s local offerings boast Bee My Honey and Zak the Baker bread in addition to a full American breakfast menu with a Latin twist.
Bar Collins serves as the lobby’s central hub with a wide variety of places to lounge for relaxing and indulging in both the incredible food and cocktails offered. With a menu ranging from creative appetizers to sandwiches, salads, pizzas and entrees, you can enjoy a full meal or a light bite here at lunchtime, dinner or late night. Bar Collins also boasts a cocktail menu by Miami’s own internationally renowned mixologist Julio Cabrera. Nibble on chorizo croquetas or the artichoke and prosciutto pizza while sipping on Cabrera’s Ron Collins made with locally distilled Miami Club Rum.
Miami Joe Coffee Co. is the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee by local roasters Panther Coffee and an empanada or one of their delicious smoothies. In addition to fresh grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, pastries, smoothies and snacks, Miami Joe Coffee Co. also boasts scoops from Little Havana’s own Azucar ice cream.
Another new addition to the Loews restaurant scene is the poolside Nautilus Bar & Grill where you can dine at the bar, beneath the shaded patio or directly from your pool’s lounge chair with a menu that includes local Florida beers on tap and everything from a signature burger to mahi-mahi sandwiches, churasco salad or chicken wings.
St. Moritz Wing
Located past a breezeway from the main lobby, the Loews historic St. Moritz tower is home to the hotel’s fine dining dinner establishment Lure Fishbar by Chef Josh Caponi. The sleek, nautical-themed restaurant is one of South Beach’s best dining for seafood with a sophisticated cocktail program to match. Indulge in everything from fresh oysters to sushi, sautéed branzino, bucatini pasta with butter poached crab, lobster rolls and even a bone-in ribeye for the carnivores.
Exhale Spa, with locations across the country, is also found in the St. Moritz tower. Dedicated to mind and body wellness through their yoga, core fusion barre and results-oriented spa treatments, Exhale is a luxurious Zen oasis. This area is also home to the hotel’s beauty salon, fitness center and newly reimagined SOBE Kids Club with fun things for kids to do - while you indulge in a spa treatment or two - that include action-packed outdoor adventures, scavenger hunts and treasure dives.
The Loews was already home to one of South Beach’s most iconic swimming pools and it’s been updated with a freshly paved pool deck, new fire pits and three adult-only cabanas. You’ll also find the SOAK cabanas and daybeds along the pool’s southern perimeter where you can enjoy a pool day in the lap of luxury. All cabanas feature full marble bathrooms with showers, temperature controlled indoor lounging, plush outdoor seating, a flatscreen TV and personalized butler service.
With all of these amenities, stellar dining experiences and a clean, new look, it’s no wonder Loews hotel remains an enduring favorite.
