We stayed here the night before we flew out of MIA, we were coming from another hotel we had stayed at the night before in Miami Beach which was awful. We arrived at the Sofitel before check in time but they did allow us into our room early for a small fee, which was worth it to us since our nightly rate was a great deal. We were greeted by the front desk promptly and they were very friendly and cordial. This Sofitel is much smaller than the one in San Francisco, but it is still nice.
We got to our room on the 9th floor which had a view of the pool, lagoon, and airport. The room was very large with sitting area and king bed, but it was a bit dated. Though everything was clean and comfortable. The room had everything you needed and typically find in a hotel, but no coffee maker, but that's not a big deal. We changed right away and went to the pool. The pool is decent size but I do not think it was heated. It was a very hot day and the pool was quite cool when getting in and took a while to get used to. We were there in August. We enjoyed lazing around the pool for a while, but there was no bar or food service out there. But the bar and restaurant were right inside the door nearest the pool. After a while we walked a couple blocks away to get some lunch elsehwere. It's not far but in that heat it was somewhat uncomfortable.
After lunch and lazing more around the pool we changed and went to the bar for cocktails and dinner. The bartender was not super friendly at first but them warmed up. Our cocktails were excellent and we ordered a lot of tapas which were also excellent. I would eat at that restaurant again for sure.
We had an early flight the next morning and took the first shuttle to the airport at 5am. It was very prompt and the driver was courteous. For the price, I would stay at this hotel again. It is quieter than some other properties and maybe not near restaurants and shopping, but it was fine for our lazy pool day.
