The best Loew's First perk for me was the separate check-in line (8/23). The regular check in line was quite long, but we walked right up to the members desk - ditto when we had to replace our room cards during our stay! I had requested the white wine and was expecting a mini bottle of generic wine, not a full bottle of Mondavi's Coastal, left on ice, which lasted me the whole vacation! (Had to ask 3 times before it was delivered, though)
Does anyone know if lowes owns the HrH as well?
They do, last I heard.
Does anyone know if Loews sends you a physical card? I applied on line a few weeks ago and haven't heard anything. Usually they send an automatic email telling you they received your info and a card or whatever will be forthcoming. What do I tell them at checkin it I don't have a card??
Call Loews 800# give them your name and they will give you your # on the phone until you get your card.
To get this card does it cost you money if so How much? I did check out the site link above and the site said nothing about it Im just wondering if there is some hidden fee??
Thanks for your help
Only 3 weeks and 4 day for our FIRST trip to USF and IOA !!!!!
they own the Royal Pacific, not HRH. HRH is owned by the Hard Rock company(what their "official name is, i dont know. the Rank Group or something like that), which is totally independent from Lowes.
I assumed that the Hard Rock was owned by Loews. I called the number on my Loews Card and made the reservation. They offered me a Fan Club rate and even asked what gift I would like.
I thought Universal, Loews and Rank Group PLC were all partners.
Loews operates all 3 properties.
I saw the HRH on the Loews website a while back.
Now I'm confused.
I posted a question about the card costing money but the topic went to if loew owned HRH which they do cause thats why I want to get the card for the benefits at HRH.
The Loews card costs nothing and there are no hidden fees, not even postage.
PS I were told by a HRH staff member the only part of the HRH the Hard Rock owns is the shop and the memorablilia. Loews owns the rest.
"And, as part of a joint venture with Universal, Inc. and the Rank Organization, Loews Hotels opened two hotels located at Universal Orlando. The 750-room Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando, a Loews Hotel, opened in September 1999, followed by the 650-room Hard Rock Hotel in February 2001. The third hotel, the 1,000-room Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, a Loews Hotel, will open in Fall 2002".
667 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10021
This was printed on the Loews website.
I would think Loews did own the HRH. When I made reservations at the HRH and told them I was a Loews card holder they asked for all my Loews preferences.
I just enrolled on-line for the Loew's card and they said it took 3-5 weeks if you enroll on-line, quicker if you call their 800#. Then at the bottom, it said click on the Loew's hotel of you choice for info; HRH was listed.
Not sure if this was corrected but all the properties at Universal are LOEWS properties. I have stayed at the HRH about 7 times and always get the LOEWS treatment, points, free wine etc.
