We live in Florida and always look forward to staying at the Sofitel before and after our flights. Price is reasonable, Rooms are wonderful, staff is super friendly and helpful, food at bar was great (late night great sandwiches, appetizers, etc. and restaurant was fantastic for breakfast. Mother's Day Brunch was so fabulous that we decided just to stay overnight in the future just to enjoy the facility and great food. This is one of the most reasonable and elegant places to stay in Miami. You do need a car to tour since this hotel is five minutes from the airport and not near South Beach, etc. Noise from planes was not an issue. This is one of the finest hotels we have stayed in because of their service and proximity to the airport.
