My Mom, girlfriend, sister, brother-in-law and I went on a cruise for my Mom's 60th b-day. Due to the transfers from the airport and to Port of Miami, we (Mom) chose to stay at the Sofitel prior to a cruise to the Bahamas.
The hotel is very close to the airport and only a $20-25 cab fare to downtown Miami. Ultra was in town last weekend when we were there!!! I think all five of us were pleased with the property. If you are expecting beach front then this is not your property. However, there are nice water views and the hotel has a classy feel to it. It was extremely clean and aside from paying $7 for the FIJI water I so desperately needed in the morning after Ultra, I have no complaints! Well...our view from the room was the stucco roof above the restaurant, but our other room had a great view to the front of the hotel...but we were only in the room to sleep.
The concierge and other bellman were awesome. Everyone of the staff members were really friendly. I asked them where the nearest liquor store was and we were driven there and he even came back to pick us up! Of course we took care of him for his gesture :). The bar and restaurant were very nice and the breakfast we enjoyed outside on the patio was outstanding!
I know there are more than enough properties to choose from in Miami, but overall you cannot go wrong at the Sofitel; I would definitely stay here again.
