Loews guests can expect an upgrade

Loews Hotels is undertaking an impressive refurbishment programme that has seen most of its 24 hotels refreshed in the past few years.


The hotel chain, with 23 hotels in the U.S. and one in Montreal, Canada, has invested heavily on renovations and refurbishments throughout its portfolio.

Nine Loews hotels have been added since 2012 and the hotel group plans to significantly expand its presence throughout the largest U.S. cities.

For example, due for renovations this year is the acclaimed Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, which is revamping its guestrooms.

The work will include Bluetooth-enabled clock radios, touch-screen light-up mirrors, digital TV systems and walk-in showers. In addition, some rooms and suites will also have their own personal fire pits on their patios and the new Ocean Terrace, adjacent to the pool, features comfortable lounge furniture and outdoor fire pits overlooking the beach.

Also this year, the Loews Miami Beach Hotel will overhaul its guestrooms, lobby and pool, while the Loews Regency San Francisco will refurbish its lobby and restaurant.

Over the past 10 months or so Loews has opened the Loews Chicago and acquired what is now the Loews Regency San Francisco.

In February the hotel chain purchased its first property in Seattle, Hotel 1000, which will be rebranded a Loews Regency in 2017. Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, its fifth hotel at Universal Orlando, will open in the summer of 2017.
