Loews Miami Beach Hotel

As of February 3, the group room block has closed. The Loews Miami Beach has rooms available, but they may be at higher rates. Please contact the hotel directly at (888) 879-0462  or via their website for information on current availability and rates.

WAIT LIST: If you would like to be placed on the wait list for a room at the group rate, please contact Kristin Hanley. Being placed on the waiting list is not a guarantee of a room. We recommend that you make an alternate reservation and note the cancellation policy for your reservation in the event a room does come available at the group rate. Rooms will be granted as cancellations are received. You will be contacted no later than February 21 if a room becomes available. After that date, the wait list will be released.


Once the rooming block is full or after the cut-off date (whichever comes first), you may not be able to obtain the Public Affairs Council group rate or a room at the conference hotel. Therefore, we recommend that you book a room as early as possible.

Also please note that the room rate is only valid for the nights of the conference (check-in taking place on the first advertised day of the conference and check-out on the final day.) Some hotels have been known to honor the room rate on the few days before and after our events, but please be aware that it is not guaranteed and that the room rate may be different.


The Public Affairs Council has obtained a special group rate of $345++ per night at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel located at 1601 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida, which includes complimentary internet access in your hotel room. To make hotel reservations, please call (888) 879-0462 or reserve online. When calling, make sure to identify yourself as part of the Public Affairs Council or National PAC Conference to receive the group rate. The deadline for reservations is February 3, 2020 by 5pm ET or until the block is full, whichever comes first. 

Hotel Policies to Note: A deposit of one night’s room and tax will be charged to your credit card at the time of your reservation. Individual reservations may be cancelled without penalty until 72 hours prior to arrival. Cancellations received less than 72 hours prior to arrival and any no-show reservations will be billed one night’s room and tax to the payment method on file.

At check-in, guests will have the opportunity to reconfirm departure dates. Any guest departing prior to that date will be assessed a charge equal to one night’s room and tax.

Optional Resort Fee: The hotel offers an optional resort fee that has been discounted for our group at $13 per day (plus tax). The resort fee includes premium plus upgraded internet access for up to 4 mobile devices. Please note that standard guest room internet is included with the group rate. Premium plus upgraded internet is ideal for watching movies, playing games and streaming TV shows. The resort fee also includes daily fitness center access, complimentary participation in daily exhale meditation class (sign up required), use of up to 4 beach chairs, daily (one chair per person), use of kayaks, paddle boards and boogie boards, complimentary banana boat rides from 10 AM – 11 AM daily (based upon availability) and unlimited local calls. The resort amenity package charge is per room. If you do not opt to add the resort fee to your reservation, the items included in the resort fee can be purchased a la carte.
