“The right hotel if you want to be near Miami Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I've stayed at this hotel several times, primarily the day before departing from Miami Airport. The staff is friendly, helpful and service overall is very good. The restaurant is nice and food very good but is somewhat rich if you're looking for simple food. They offer shuttle service to the airport and picked us up from the car rental area when I asked.

The guestrooms are good size, okay but not lavishly appointed. This is one of the drawbacks, being the guestrooms are in need of renovation. However, I was told this is due to happen sometime this year and believe Sofitel will probably make it really nice.

Other than nearing the airport or doing business, I'm not sure if this location offers much more for being in Miami. If you're planning on touring the city, then I suggest renting a car because it's not near any shopping or other sites.

The room rate is fair to very good for the location, quality and overall service.

I really enjoyed my three night stay at this well run Sofitel. The staff are very attentive and polite and the bar staff were particularly friendly. I enjoy a great bar snack and a couple of Martinis and spent a very relaxing day by the pool. My only criticism would be the very hefty room service 'service charge' of $2 plus 19%. Which made up a 30% surcharge on my small room service order. My question is how can you demonstrate good service by delivering a meal to a room?

The Sofitel has the same amenities as any Hampton Inn or anything like that. The price, however, is much higher and not justified, although the staff is very friendly and attentive. Location is close to the airport and that's it. Therem much better alternatives for less money in the vicinity. Rooms were clean, food was ok.

Close to Airport.Shuttle provided free. 20-25 mins from Bayside where Tours pick up from) $ 25.00 taxi but is more than compensated by the cheaper hotel price. We were still ahead. Very pleasant staff. Coffee shop in foyer Supermarket and Restuarants in walking distance

Spent 1 night there last month when traveling through Miami. Typical Sofitel Hotel ... relatively expensive, nice grounds, well-maintained, good rooms, and excellent breakfast. It was somewhat difficult to find at night when you are driving a rental car in an unfamiliar area, but we made it. Right off the Dolphin Expressway, but you don't notice freeway sounds. Gated parking made you feel your vehicle was secure. Relatively large king room. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were great. Staff was friendly and competent. Airport shuttle available. A much better choice than a multiple of cheaper hotels near the airport.

The staff are all very well trained and anxious to assist.
The food is terrific and the bar and restaurant staff excellent.
It is a conference hotel and can be busy but it is our favourite hotel in Miami.

This Sofitel is NOT a luxury hotel. My room, called suite by the hotel was incredibly disappointing, the bathroom absolutely substandard. No mini bar, no coffee maker in room.
The only nice thing apart from friendly staff are the bar, lounge, pool and restaurant areas.
The entrance, check in área looks very cheap indeed.
