My husband and I often stay at Sofitel when visiting friends and family in Miami. We have known this property for well over 20 years going back to a time when we also lived in Miami. The beds are always superb for a great night's sleep. Although a few things on the surface seem slightly worn - the hotel has a long history - the hotel staff strive to make each guest's stay as wonderful as possible. For us, staying at this hotel provides us with a little taste of France each time we visit. As we have traveled to France often, a stay here helps when we really begin to miss some of our favorite things. We have enjoyed excellent meals in the La Riviera restaurant including breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is magnifique and consistently wonderful. We continually received excellent service from all the staff throughout the hotel.
