“Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

My Husband and I were a couple of days in Miami, before we went to Orlando for our Honeymoon.

We've stayed at this hotel and the staff was very friendly to us.
My husband got sick when we've arrived at the hotel, they send out imediatly a bellboy to the CVS pharmacy to buy him medications.

Room was clean, we had a room with nice skyline view.

They offer free shuttle service to the airport.

All by all we had a pleasant stay at this hotel and we will definitly return in the future.

Arrived early after an overnight flight but this was no problem for the staff. Was checked in by 10.00 am. Lovely room and views. Bell staff always hovering at the door. Excellent shuttle service from/to airport just wait outside airport for sofitel bus(every 1/2 hour) and free (tip)
The hotel seemed to charge for parking if you had a car

Stayed in Sofitel Miami last week, and i could appreciate a great service, excellent staff and a confortable and clean room amenities.
The proximity of the MIA Airport and Car Rental Area are a important point to consider for travellers. As a A-Club gold member, i had an enjoyable wellcome drink at the pool : )

After a long day of driving we expected a good nights sleep at this deluxe airport hotel. Instead, we were subjected to a noisy party whose music and base speakers were so loud we could here them on the 7th floor with our Bose headphones on! Calls to the front desk did not help alleviate the sound levels. With a 5 am wake up call for our flight the next day we were lucky to get 4 hours of sleep. This is not what one expects from an airport hotel whose main goal should be catering to weary travelers!!

this hotel was great for the money that was spent I wasn't expecting it to be soo good, the beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in and I have slept at alot of hotels. the bathrooms are great, their service is great, my only pet peeve is that they dont have microwaves in the rooms.

This is my second stay at the Sofitel. I really enjoy the service, the friendiness and the attention that I get when I stay there. The price was very reasonable and it was close to everything I needed.

Pros:I didn't have to wait long for the free shuttle from the airport to the hotel; room was great with view of the lagoon; down duvet and pillows and the gracious staff let me have late checkout. Breakfast was a selection of american, french or cuban dishes with excellent croissants and pain au chocolat.
Cons: the exterior of the property itself seemed a little odd until I realized it was bleu, blanc and rouge, for the french flag. There was not a breakfast buffet, although they wanted me to prepay for it. The shuttle was only available to the airport and cruise ship ports, not to other local places..
