The Loews Miami Beach Hotel: #AWonderfulPlace
Every year, I look forward to the Food Network’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival! It truly is one of my favorite times of the year. It is a weekend full of unlimited drinks, delicious food prepared by notable chefs across the US and star–studded events put on by Food Network’s finest. However, my favorite part of the weekend is getting to stay at SOBEWFF Official Host Hotel: The Loews Miami Beach Hotel.
The Loews Miami Beach Hotel– is truly #AWonderfulPlace. This is my second year staying at the festival’s host hotel with Lena of @EastCoastFeastCoast, and each time we stay at The Loews Miami Beach its always gets harder to leave! The hotel is in the best location, right on the beach and conveniently next to all of SOBEWFF events, Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. Not to mention, that our room was very beautiful, extremely comfortable, and offered the most breathtaking views of the pool and beach.
Keep reading for my official Loews Miami Beach Hotel guide of where to eat and what to do when staying at the hotel, because trust me- the options are ENDLESS!
Eating at The Loews Miami Beach Hotel
Located in the St. Moritz Tower, the award-winning signature restaurant Lure Fishbar specializes in fresh seafood, sushi and American classics. With a New York restaurant spin, diners can enjoy delicious food offerings from a classic cheeseburger topped with a HUGE onion ring to the most beautifully presented sushi platters and seafood towers.
Located in the Loews Miami Beach Lobby and extended on the terrace, you could always find Lena and myself at Bar Collins for either a healthy lunch or dinner. My personal favorites were the berry salad, hummus trio and guacamole starter. Bar Collins is also a great place to grab a drink with friends before a night out of SOBEWFF, as their handcrafted cocktails and lively bar atmosphere are the perfect combination for a great night.
Every morning during our stay, we started the day at Preston’s Market- we absolutely loved their farm-to-table concept. Preston’s serves both healthy and hearty a la carte breakfast favorites that will help kick-start your full day in South Beach! I loved sitting on Preston’s terrace every morning for breakfast, which overlooks the Loews Miami Beach Pool. I definitely recommend starting your days off at Preston’s. The service is also incredible! Make sure to try Preston’s Avocado Toast made on freshly baked bread from Zak The Baker in Miami.
Miami Joe Coffee Co.
If you know me, you know I am a coffee lover, and believe me when I say that Miami Joe Coffee Co. did just the trick! From coffee and pastries to sandwiches, salads, savory snacks and ice cream– there is something for everyone at Miami Joe Coffee Co. The convenient coffee shop is located in the Loews Miami Beach lobby beside Bar Collins. One thing I loved most about their coffee is that it is freshly brewed from Panthers Coffee and is apart of the Loews #FlavorMiami program.
Things to do at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel
The SOAK Cabanas at The Loews Miami Beach is the place to be when enjoying your stay at the hotel! The ultimate, exclusive, luxury experience at SOAK is a great way to spend your day at The Loews. SOAK Cabanas & Daybeds features eight state-of-the-art poolside cabanas with rooftop sundecks, AC, plush furnishings, personal concierge service and so much more.

There’s no way to not enjoy your day when you’re at the SOAK Cabanas!
Exhale Spa & Fitness
You can find fitness, wellness and beauty amenities all in the same place at The Loews Miami. The best part about Exhale Spa + Fitness is that you don’t need to leave the comfort of the hotel. Exhale Spa + Fitness is an award winning on site flagship spa, gym + boutique fitness studios with top equipment and classes for when you’re craving that workout fix. During my stay, I was able to squeeze in early morning workouts at Exhale Fitness. It was the best way to start my busy SOBEWFF day! Lena and myself also had the chance to enjoy the Loews Glam + Go located in the St. Moritz Tower. This full-service salon offers premier express blowout services and makeup applications. We used their services before our SOBEWFF events and absolutelyloved our hair and makeup!
I had the most amazing time staying at The Loews Miami Beach Hotel, and can’t wait to come back! The Loews Miami Beach is the place to be during SOBEWFF. The Loews Miami Beach Hotel has become my luxury home away from home!
