Andrew Williams Loomis (June 27, 1797 – August 24, 1873) was a U.S. Representative from Ohio.

Born in Lebanon, Connecticut, Loomis earned his law degree from Union College, Schenectady, New York, in 1819. He was admitted to the bar, and moved to Canton, Ohio to practice law. He then moved to New Lisbon (now Lisbon), Ohio. He served as delegate to the National-Republican State convention in 1827 and 1828.

Loomis was elected as a Whig to the Twenty-fifth Congress and served from March 4, 1837, until October 20, 1837, when he resigned. He moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1839 and resumed his legal practice. He served as member of the Peace Conference of 1861 held in Washington, D.C., in an effort to devise means to prevent the impending war. He moved to Cleveland, Ohio, about 1868. He died while on a visit to Cumberland, Maryland, August 24, 1873. He was interred in Allegheny Cemetery, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
