Have stayed at the Element Miami International Airport a couple of times, and it works well for my purposes. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the fitness center is more than adequate for a hotel at this price point, and the complementary breakfast and dining area works nicely. In other words, a good place to sleep near the airport and a good value.
The airport runway is nearby, and when walking between the car and the hotel entrance we very much noticed the sounds of jets taking off. However, this did not prove to be an issue inside the hotel. My room was quiet and comfortable for sleeping. The only noise I heard at night was a group of people speaking loudly in the hallway.
As has been noted by other posts, the area around this hotel is not of interest. It is an old industrial or boat yard area. The neighborhood is not a problem, and it is not an advantage. There is nothing nearby to walk to, and going out for a meal requires a car.
Bottom-line: this property provides a clean, comfortable place to rest for business travelers (with transportation) and for tourists who need nothing more than a place to rest before or after a flight at MIA.
