My husband and I stayed here for two days before boarding a cruise. The hotel is modern, clean and has a very friendly staff. The rooms are big and comfortable and include a kitchen with full size refrigerator. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of closet space for people staying for an extended amount of time. The bathroom was lovely with a huge shower. I did not eat breakfast at the hotel but my husband did the first day we were there and said is was standard "hotel food". Wifi was free and seemed to work fine.

There are three things I would recommend to the hotel: First, label the recycle bins in the room so people don't get confused on what's trash and what's recyclable. Second, although eco-friendly, the idea of the shampoo/conditioner/body wash pumps installed in the shower is disturbing. I would recommend using individual amenities that utilize recycled packaging. Third, paying for parking is a bit much, don't you think? Normally, at a hotel, you pay for parking when there is a parking deck or valet. With hotel lot parking, I found it odd that we had to pay ($10).

All in all a good stay and we would stay again.

Though it took some time with the detours as their street does NOT connect directly to Le June, I found the establishment very nice. Check-in and out went very smoothly. Morning breakfasts were ok, but not quite like the Hilton Family breakfasts. Evening manager's receptions were nice. My favorite touch to the stay...CAPPACHINO MACHINE! It also made Expresso and Cafe Latte's. The only time you can use this machine is during breakfast and the evening manager's receptions. Accommodations were very nice and the AC worked extremely well.

Just wish I hadn't been right outside the elevator...very squeaky machine and heard it all night.

Stayed here for one night before our early flight the next day. This place is only 2 blocks away from the rental car center but in the middle of factories and car repair shops. There are zero restaurants or shops nearby but saw many people hop on the free shuttle to the airport to grab food. I'm SPG Gold so spend a lot of time in hotels but I think this place is fantastic for families with kids because: 1) Free hot breakfast 2) Free evening snacks like hotdogs and nachos 3) free wifi 4) large bathroom with a big shower equipped with detachable shower head for washing squirmy kids and plenty of counter space 5) full sized fridge and microwave 6) small but nice pool.
Staff was nice and sent a shuttle to pick me up at the car rental center when I returned the car the night before my flight.
Look, it's an airport hotel and you should manage your expectations but this place will do fine for most travelers, especially for families.

This hotel is located very close to Miami airport, providing modern style at an affordable price. The rooms are spacious and include full kitchen and sectional couch. The Wi-Fi is fast and reliable, which is a huge perk for business travelers. Additionally, the hotel provides a free shuttle for guests looking to venture out for dinner.

So, wasnt sure i was in the right place when i arrived here considering the surroundings which looked like rusty warehouses/chopshops/etc. But being from miami and having been in this area, i knew i should expect to see such. I did not however expect this fabulous oasis to be in the dead center of it all.

A tourist might not feel safe coming to this side of town based on the looks, but it is actually pretty safe and quiet. upon entering the parking lot, you must enter a gate by pressing a button and your picture is immediately taken before you even get to the lobby doors.

The intererior is sleek, modern, cozy, clean, fresh, kind of like a catalog living room. the pool is heated, there is a firepit, a great lake view and though the airplanes are flying, you barely notice the sound of them (you could probably swim to the airport, its that close) there is a gym but i didnt use it. their studios (king w/sofabed) offer sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much space and comfort. there is plenty of lighting available in the rooms so you dont have to feel like your in a dark hotel room in the middle of no where. the windows are huge and clear. i stayed on the fifth floor(top floor) facing the airport and it was a relaxing view.

the tv is on a stand that swivels to face the couch or bed or even the kitchen area. the room has a countertop stove(2 burners) dishwasher toaster microwave plates bowls cups mugs utensils pots pans cooking utensils pot holders full sized refrigerator wifi and a large closet space. there is a coffee table and desk table and more counter space so if your traveling with more than 2, trust me, you have space. the shower is large enough for 2 and half, though it was just me and the love, and i love the option of a shower handle. for those of you big on conserving energy, the toilet has a 1/2 flush and full flush option. the bathroom mirror is huge and the hallways are nice and clean. the free breakfast is not for those who like greasy eggs and ham or sugar cuban coffee. but it is yummy for a healthy breakfast (turkey sausage, egg whites, waffles, muffins, english muffins, bagels, water, juice, cereal milk apples yougurt grapes granola) or you could buy your own groceries and cook in your room :)

i cant imagin what the executive space is like, but i will definitely be coming back here

Room Tip: get a room facing the lake/airport/pool, the area around the hotel is not very breathtaking

I stayed at the Element Miami the night before and after myCarribean cruise. There is free shuttle service from Miami International Airport to the hotel; however, be prepared to wait as the shuttle doesn't seem to come as often as other hotel shuttles. It's free, so at the same time I can't complain!

The location of the hotel is pretty close to the airport; however, the hotel is not near any other restaurants or retail stores - it's basically in an industrial area. You can't really walk to anything close by and I definitely would not be walking in that area at night. At my first stay at the Element, I arrived late (11pm) so the only option for food was to order delievery. Thankfully, the hotel staff did have flyers for delivery food options.

The hotel is very clean and modern, and my room was equipped with a sink, dishes, fridge, and even a dishwasher! The bathroom is roomy and has a nice glass shower door with shower light above. The rooms were actually quite large and roomy. There is free breakfast and two computers in the lobby to access the internet (free!) which was a nice bonus. The breakfast was quite adequate and even included some hot items such as omelets and sausage. The pool area is right off the main lobby area and is very nice.

My only complaint is that the front desk staff at time were not very knowledgeable. They didn't seem to know the area which wasn't helpful if you are a visitor to the area. During my second stay, there was no hairdryer in the room and after two calls and two visits to the front desk, the hairdryer still never arrived. However, the shuttle driver was really nice and offer to drop off us so we could catch a bus tour downtown. They offer transportation to the cruise port for $24.

The first night I stayed on the fourth floor and heard airplanes flying overhead late into the night. I was surprised at how loud they were. The second stay I stayed on the second floor and never heard a thing.

I would stay here again if I needed to be close to the airport. Otherwise, I think I would stay somewhere closer to restaurants and places you could walk to to save on taxi fares.

Room Tip: Stay on the lower levels - otherwise you'll hear planes flying overhead all night!

The Element is super convenient to the airport. It is busy modern hotel with a European flair. It seemed to have quite a few flight crews staying there and several vans of Euro flight crews were arriving as we were leaving for dinner. Our bright, modern room had a big kitchen area and a separate sitting area with a pull out couch. It is new and very clean. Note that the hotel is in the middle of an industrial area and had a gate around it which locks in the evening and you must have a key card or be let in. It is not a full service hotel and has no restaurant for dinner nor room service. They do offer shuttle van service however the restaurant choices in the area are limited. They were also nice to pick us up via shuttle van at the rental car center at the airport. I would definitely stay here again if I need an overnight airport hotel.
