We stayed at the Ocean Front Vice-Presidential Suite, it has all the room you need for a great vacation.
This newly renovated suite features more than 900 square feet of living, sleeping and lounging space, complete with two private terraces showcasing Direct Views of the breathtaking Atlantic Ocean (South Beach). In addition to the King bedroom, the suite also has a full-size sofa bed.
Luxury is everywhere in the Vice-Presidential Ocean Front Suite, from the South Beach-inspired Art Deco design, to the soft, plush linens and huge elegant marble baths with a huge soaker tub and double headed shower.
Two seating areas, one with a full bar and sliding glass door, the other with a more intimate, inclusive setting, perfect for reading or relaxing. After dinner, slip into one of our cushy robes, mix a cocktail, unwind and enjoy your stunning view. It’s entertaining, South Beach style in the Oceanfront Vice-Presidential at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
Also, unfortunately, their food is a big disappointment. It was very mediocre, which was a surprise, because it was expensive! We tried it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it never improved. If we stayed here again, we would avoid the Loews restaurants altogether.
There are lots of other great restaurants located nearby (20% gratuity is automatically added to every bill, not just at the hotel, but everywhere in South Beach). This is probably because Europeans don’t customarily tip. But really – 20%! Believe me, the service rarely deserved more than 15%, especially at Preston’s breakfast when you are serving yourself at buffet! Shame on Loews for this.
Each and every staff member we encountered was friendly, courteous and helpful. Since the lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach are owned by, I don’t know, some company that’s not the Loews, you have to rent the chairs and umbrellas daily, $13 per chair and $15 per umbrella. Internet Service they charged us $15 daily ( This should have been complimentary with the price we pay to stay at this property ).
