Stayed here one night before a cruise. Nice room. Beds comfy. Front staff very helpful. Nice, clean and quiet. Resturant a little pricey but very nice.

Be really carefull when you make a reservation and for any reason you need to cancel it, if you paid in full you will have to change the date or you will loose your money.....I DON'T THINK THAT IS THE RIGHT WAY TO DO BUSINESS...because if the ask me know about SOFITEL , I will certainly say DON'T GO THERE....you have other hotels in the area.....
I didn't stay for personnal reason, and now I will either loose my money or literally they are forsing me to pick another day......NO HAPPY AT ALL...

From the moment you are picked up in the air-conditioned courtesy airport bus you know you are in good hands. Welcoming driver with ice-water at the ready. We recently spent two overnights at the Sofitel Miami and by far my favourite hotel in the area. On our second stay, we were upgraded to a suite which really rounded our holiday (vacation) off so well.

I stayed for a week, the service was great! Great location for shopping and heading to the south beach. Checking was easy, stress free. The staff was very friendly. Room services was perfect and in a timely matter. I would totally recommend this hotel and will continue to stay there.

Got stuck in Miami due to delays in customs/immigration and failed to make the connection to LA. Thank God for the Sofitel Miami! It was a breeze to get on the shuttle and we were in the hotel in 10 minutes or less. Natalya at the front desk was very sweet, and took time to tell us the amenities/facilities we could use in the short timr we were there. The room is spacious and we had a lagoon view that showed the beautiful headquarters of many corps around it-I guess this is a big business hotel due to its proximity. They use L'Occitane products, my favorite although I noticed they soaps had become smaller. We jumped in the pool, which is super refreshing after a long day and flight from the Caribbean, and the waterfalls were spectacular.
Too late to try the restaurant, but the bar was happening late into the night. The next day, we used our short hours to go to South Beach-the hotel is a short cab ride into South Beach or downtown, surprising for an airport hotel because many airport hotels are so far from the city center. You can also take the shuttle to tha airport and take a bus from there instead of a cab.
The staff are super friendly. Would not hesitate to stay there again whether its to be near the airport or to visit Miami for several days on vacation!

Room Tip: Ask for lagoon view!

I stayed here for a night en route to Ecuador for a Galapagos cruise. Arrived around 11:15pm outside the airport where hotel shuttles arrive. The Sofitel shuttle arrived after a 20 min wait. The shuttle driver was courteous. At the reception, the check in was quick and the receptionist was really nice. This hotel is part of Accor hotels chain which is french. So you may get a bonjour greeting on your arrival.
The hotel room was really clean and spacious. For a solo traveller like me, this was more than I could ask for. The price was about $150 which is expected for a 4 star property. I usually stay in cheaper 2-3 star hotels but this was at the beginning of a Galapagos cruise on a luxury boat so I decided to splurge a bit! I could view the airport and the planes taking off or landing from my room. Not much noise though from being near the airport. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was spotless. Their check out time is 12pm and the latest you could check out was at 1pm.
There is not much nearby within walking distance. The restaurant in the hotel seemed a bit pricey. I did not try it out and settled for pizza at the airport. On looking at food choices at terminal D, maybe I should have tried something for lunch at their restaurant. Breakfast is not included in the base price but you could include it when making reservation. Breakfast also seemed a bit pricey. So maybe it could be good!

Room Tip: I picked a room near the top floors to have some city/airport view.
