5. Get a taste of Miami without leaving the resort
You don't have to leave the resort to experience Miami's uniquely local flavors! We’ve brought the local culinary scene to you by partnering with some of our favorite neighborhood food and drink artisans and serving up the best local products right here in the hotel. It’s easy to eat like a local thanks to our Flavor Miami partners including Azucar Ice Cream and Panther Coffee (both available at Miami Joe Coffee Co.), Zak the Baker (the star of Preston’s Market's bread wall), or Miami Club Rum and Wynwood Brewing (enjoy their cocktails and craft beer at Bar Collins and our Nautilus Pool Bar).
6. Reserve your Resort Photo Shoot
A complimentary resort photo shoot is included in your stay! Our FocalPoint photographers will capture the memories of your Loews Miami getaway. As part of your 45-minute session, choose from locations around the resort, on the beach, or both! Select your favorite images in a one-on-one review session, and then purchase your digital or print photo package of choice. The best part? One free branded digital image is included with our Resort Amenity Program. Visit focalpointexperience.com to book your photo shoot before you even get here!
7. Get pampered at the Pool & Beach
We offer a full schedule of Miami-inspired pool amenities, which are also passed around to guests on the beach. Enjoy refreshing sips and bites such as tropical fruit skewers, smoothies, mini snow cones and more.
8. You don’t have to leave the kids at home
We're proud to be the most family-friendly hotel on South Beach, and now that's even more true than ever. We recently launched new family offerings like Family Happy Hour at Nautilus — where kids can play on the lawn for free with a Kids Club attendant while parents enjoy afternoon drink specials — and Kids Sushi Making Classes at Lure Fishbar. Parents can enjoy some downtime when they drop the little ones off at SoBe Kids Club, and they'll also love the Kids Menus at each of our restaurants, full Kids Buffet for breakfast at Preston's, and our Rec Room with video games and vintage arcade classics for teens and tweens.
9. Or your pets…
Loews Loves Pets, too! We welcome dogs, cats and other four-legged friends for a true furry-tale getaway! We'll give Fido his own pet placemat, water bowl, doggie treats, and even offer a gourmet pet menu as part of In Room Dining. Just know that we can accommodate up to 2 pets per room, and there's a one-time pet fee of $50.
10. Check it out... We offer Express Checkout
Long gone are the days where you had to visit the Front Desk to check out of the hotel. We offer three easy ways to say goodbye. Use Chat Your Service to send a quick text to let us know you're leaving, dial Ext. 4444 from your in-room phone and leave a message with your name and room number, or simply leave your key packet in our gold Express Checkout box in the lobby.
