Loews Hotels takes the job of entertaining traveling families seriously, which makes this recognition especially rewarding for us.
San Diego (Vocus) February 5, 2010
Parents magazine today announced the results of an exclusive survey to identify the 10 Best Beach Resorts for Families in the U.S. and Caribbean, and Loews Miami Beach Hotel in South Beach and Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego proudly made the list.
“Loews Hotels takes the job of entertaining traveling families seriously, which makes this recognition especially rewarding for us,” said Emily Goldfischer, vice president of public relations for Loews Hotels. “Whether it is offering complimentary Fisher-Price toys upon arrival or trans-fat-free children’s menus in our restaurants, all Loews hotels will continue to go the extra mile with our Loews Loves Kids program.”
To determine the award recipients, Parents magazine asked family travel agents and tourism boards to nominate resorts in the United States and the Caribbean that are right on the beach but light on the credit card. From more than 75 contenders, Parents then narrowed the field by evaluating the range of family activities, the quality and uniqueness of the supervised children’s program, and the overall value for your money.
Ranked #4 Loews Miami Beach Hotel in South Beach
Recently completing a $50 million hotel-wide renovation, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, the only true family-friendly hotel on South Beach, features children’s programs such as the new Pottery Barn Kids Camp, Saturday afternoon SushiSkool, special pool and beach pampering in “kids only” areas, and even a poolside activity desk for younger guests to get the “411” on the daily activities. The hotel made the list for these offerings as well as their new healthy kids menus, which not only include a vast array of choices, but also word searches and brain teasers to keep children occupied.
Located directly on the beach in the “heart” of South Beach with an entrance set back from bustling Collins Avenue, Loews Miami Beach Hotel features a palm tree lined promenade, oceanfront swimming pool with an “infinity” style area for children, private poolside cabanas and seven restaurants and bars.
Ranked #6 Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego
Educational beach explorations, an interactive “Adopt-a-Tomato” children’s menu and free family activities, such as pizza-making workshops and bayside marshmallow roasts, are just some of the reasons Loews Coronado Bay Resort was the only hotel on the West Coast to make the list. The hotel’s Pottery Barn Kids’ Club was also recognized for its innovative activities, including GPS-led scavenger hunts, rocket experiments and Harry Potter magic tricks.
A destination within a destination, Loews Coronado Bay Resort’s private 15-acre peninsula provides the ideal setting for families. On-site amenities include three swimming pools, four restaurants and lounges, basketball and tennis courts, a private 80-slip marina and direct access to the Silver Strand State Beach.
