Jack from Newtown Ards, IE rated Loews Miami Beach Hotel 10 out of 10 on July 09, 2005
"Beautiful Hotel.....Room are very small.....4 star hotel that does not offer ice service on every floor??? The one ice maker that they did have in the basement didn't work!!!!...No nightly turn down service....All in all, If you want to tell people that you stayed where "the Stars stay" then go ahead and book your trip there. If that's not important, I recommend a number of hotels that will be less money, yet offer much nicer accomadations."
