“Great Airport Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Stayed for one night on a stopover after a long journey from Hawaii. Overall, the Element brand is a favorite of ours. The room was clean and modern with a full kitchen. The complimentary breakfast as well as complimentary manager's reception is great.

Definitely used the complimentary shuttle they offer to the fullest extent. They run every 1/2 hour and go to/from the airport. Aside from the airport they'll drop you off anywhere within 3 miles. They brought me to the grocery store to pick up some supplies as well as the city train stop at the airport. The shuttles are nice, clean vans and the drivers are very accommodating.

I would probably choose a different hotel if you were planning on going to the beaches, but overall, it's a really great value.

Staying here on SPG points only cost 4000 points, which made the stay even more valuable.

Stayed for 1 night before a cruise. Room was ok but not of a high quality. I expected better from a Westin hotel. Breakfast was an absolute disgrace. Admittedly it was Presidents weekend but there was nowhere to sit, they ran out of food and when I asked for a plate I got a grunt but no plate. In any event from what I saw it was poor quality. When I was checking out I was asked about the stay and I told the guy the story. No apology and he didn't care.
Close to airport but not a good area. Not sure you are safe outside hotel premises and there are no restaurants or shops within walking distance.
Stayed at another airport hotel a week later and it was cheaper and more importantly far better.

Stayed for a couple of nights as an alternative to being right in the city or in Miami Beach. Location near the airport is convenient if you have a car to get around town. Location will throw you off as its right in the middel of an industrial zone and there's lots of road construction going on right now. Rooms were nicely appointed, breakfast buffet was good and overall ambience was nice.

Stayed here labor day weekend. This hotel was awesome, love the decor of the lobby and the rooms. Bathroom was awesome and the hot breakfast was nice. Our room face the the pool and the lake behind the hotel. The location was hard to get to due to road construction and the location is a little eeeh. The price was great as well as the staff. The hotel would probably cost $300 a night if it were on South Beach. The entire staff was awesome,very helpful and curteous whenever you asked or approched them for anything.

Am currently staying here for 6 nights so getting a pretty good feel for the place. Rooms are large as are the bathrooms. Love having a full size fridge. Staff is super helpful and friendly. Shuttle staff dropped me off at my car rental to pick up my car and were very helpful with directions. Shuttle was even outside as we walked out of airport so no wait at all from plane to hotel. Someone complained about the lobby being where check in was-disregard their comments as the eating area is large enough to have a wedding reception in.
Pool is super warm so no shock getting in. Parents who have kids are loving this. They only have 2 umbrellas by the pool and should order about 8 more, not sure why they are only have 2 which is kinda ridiculous. No ice machines either, so you have to ask for ice from the kitchen area and they will give you a bag. I think they should add an ice machine.
The hotel is crazy hard to find as 25th st is closed in one direction. Have your GPS set to the Fox car rental which is only a block or two away so you don't get directed to the closed 25th st. TRUST ME-unless you like driving in circles. Staff should be informing guests of a different close by location to lock on to that would avoid taking you to the closed 25th st as all the GPS devices currently do to get to the Element.
Great coffee machines that spit out lattes, capp,expressos etc. It is only available during breakfast and dinner appetizer hour. Wish they would make that available all day like they do the coffee in the pots. Appetizer nights are Monday through Thursday from 5 to 7. Food looks pretty lame ( think mini corn dogs and bagel bites from Sam's Club) but they give you a free beer or glass of wine. Breakfast ends at 9:30-most hotels I go to end at 10. I think they should add a 1/2 hour.
Room is not sound proof so airport noise might bother some. Not sure why you build a hotel on the end of an airport runway and not make it more sound proof. Most airport hotels block out the majority of airport noise, not so at the Element. Luckily most flights seem to end at 11 and start back up at 7am.

Room Tip: Pick one to overlook the pool.

I am here now finishing up my second night here. I really like it, some reviews had be second guessing the location and type of place but I really like it.

It is a green property, kind of like a 1 bedroom apartment as I have a nice kitchen, seperate bedroom with king bed and sitting area with desk and couch and another TV. It's overall very modern, clean lines and cool.

Breakfast and evening reception is included in my rate and so far it both were excellent.

Gym looks great but under the weather so I am not working out this trip. Pool also looks unreal, shame I am sick! I have a rear facing room where this is a lake and airport in the background. You hear planes but it is what it is, it's the location...right on MIA.

Parking is extra and is secure, they are undergoing a lot of construction here due tot he growth in the area so be prepared. It is a bit tricky getting in and out but I know the area so no problem for me.

The staff is super nice, very helpful and all around excellent.

I will no doubt make this my new place in MIA for work.

Room Tip: Face the lake.

First the good the staff at this location are excellent, polite, knowledgeable and very helpful. The room size is generous and so are the room amenities such as kitchenette and TVs. The onsite security is good as well. The location is convenient for the airport and cruises. Complimentary breakfast and dinner snacks are okay and free. Once again the serving staff are very polite and generous.

Next the bad. The location is definitely wanting if you came to Miami to explore. It is basically in the middle of a construction zone and warehouse location. There is a shuttle that will take you into Miami which is a good thing since walking is out of the question due to distance and neighborhood. No dining options for in between and after hours.

Tips: For SPG members good offers are normally available for point and cash & points. Also very convenient for the airport.
