Loews Hotels & Co is back in South Florida, this time in the chic city of Coral Gables. The new Loews Coral Gables Hotel, located just a short walk from the iconic Miracle Mile—one of the city’s hottest shopping districts—is the second Loews property in the greater Miami area. Its sister property is the 790-room Loews Miami Beach Hotel in the center of the see-and-be-seen South Beach area.

“This opening marks a significant milestone for us as we add a second hotel in South Florida, furthering our belief in Miami as a destination,” said Jonathan Tisch, chairman & CEO of Loews Hotels & Co, in a press statement.  “With our partners from Agave, we look forward to bringing the Loews history and heritage in hospitality and our strong service culture to The Plaza Coral Gables, local neighbors and visitors alike.”

With 242 guestrooms that include 21 suites, this stylish property also includes a spa, fitness center, pool and four restaurants and lounges. Eateries include the Americana Kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Americana Bar in the lobby, Phineas poolside on the 9th floor for small bites and specialty cocktails, and Miami Joe Coffee Co. for grab and goes.

This is a family- and pet-friendly hotel, so it can include quite a large swath of your client list. If you know the area, it faces Ponce de Leon Boulevard. Improvements are expected to be done soon to Ponce Circle Park right across the way, so there’s plenty of room to roam for littles and doggies. This is an excellent place for weddings, too—it boasts a 9,000 sq. ft. ballroom (the largest in the city) and a 9th-floor event deck for receptions with a view of the downtown area.

The Loews Coral Gables is part of The Plaza Coral Gables, a mixed-use development that includes high-end offices, street-level shopping and dining, and residential lofts and apartments.
