Miami Beach, Fla. (Vocus) June 2, 2009
Loews Miami Beach Hotel, located in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco District, is a popular "hot spot" for families. The hotel is the only true family-friendly resort in the area, catering to families with kids of all ages. The new partnership with PBteen, Pottery Barn's furniture and décor brand designed specifically with teens in mind, creates an abundance of additional options for tweens and teens to enjoy during their stay.
PBteen converted one of Loews Miami Beach Hotel's existing cabanas into a teen dream oasis. The new PBteen Cabana is decorated with trendy, colorful chairs, plush couches, area rugs and wall murals, making it an inviting, hip and free place for teens to hang out. Located on the north side of the hotel, away from Mom and Dad, teens won't want to miss weekly Nintendo Wii competitions with awesome prizes, the latest and greatest DVD rentals and their very own list of tropical frozen smoothies.
During the summer months and holiday seasons, PBteen has also designed the ultimate PBteen Game Lounge. For teens only, no adults allowed, the game hideaway has everything, including oversized comfy furniture, air hockey, ping pong, movies on the large screen, iChairs - an iPod-friendly lounger with built-in speakers and Nintendo Wii.
Loews Hotels first partnered with PBteen in 2006 with the creation of a stylish PBteen Lounge and PBteen Spa Room at Loews Coronado Bay Resort. In March 2009, the popular lounge received a makeover with new surfer-inspired PBteen furniture and other beach and ocean accents. Adding to the experience is Guitar Hero World Tour, an interactive video game that allows teens to form bands and compete in weekly "Battle of the Band" jam sessions. The overall goal of the PBteen Lounges is to offer teenagers a fun, safe and free space to play video games, watch DVDs, kick back in one of the iChairs and to meet and engage with other travelers their own age.
Loews Hotels and PBteen look to continue building the partnership with the addition of a teen lounge later this summer at the Don CeSar Beach Resort, a Loews Hotel.
