CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Loews Hotels & Co. has officially opened the Loews Coral Gables Hotel just four blocks from the Gables’ iconic Miracle Mile.
Loews Coral Gables features 242 guestrooms, including 21 suites featuring a sophisticated, modern design, a spa, fitness center, pool, and four restaurants and lounges. Additionally, its 30,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space includes a 9,000-square-foot ballroom and a ninth-floor event deck with views of downtown Coral Gables.
The hotel is the second property in the Greater Miami Area for New York-based Loews Hotels & Co, joining the 790-room Loews Miami Beach Hotel, located in South Beach.
“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,” says Jonathan Tisch, Chairman & CEO, Loews Hotels & Co. “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 and local neighbors and visitors alike.”
In partnership with Agave Holdings, Loews Coral Gables is part of The Plaza Coral Gables. The Plaza Coral Gables is part of Miami’s business district section with a full range of services and community opportunities, which also includes class “A” offices, street-level shopping and dining areas, and residential lofts and apartments. The new design incorporates a one-acre public plaza and the soon-to-be-improved Ponce Circle Park.
The concepts of the bars and restaurants are:
Americana Kitchen – An ode to the Americana Hotel built by the Tisch Family–owners of Loews Hotels & Co–in 1956 in what is now Bal Harbour, Fla. Its fine dining offers American classics including breakfast favorites and locally infused, regional lunch and dinner cuisine.
Americana Bar – This lobby bar puts a new spin on classic cocktails handcrafted in the tradition of old-school American glamour, complimented by an expansive wine collection.
Phineas – This poolside ninth-floor event deck celebrates the Latin flavors of south Florida via small plates and specialty cocktails, with sky-high views of Coral Gables.
Miami Joe Coffee Co. – This locally-inspired grab-and-go market features roasted coffee, homemade pastries, fresh salads, sandwiches, snacks, and gelato.
Coastal Construction constructed the Loews Coral Gables, with Miami-based CRTKL overseeing both the architecture and design side of the project.
