We arrived in Miami around 5pm and had an 8am flight the next day, so we couldn't see spending big money on a waterfront hotel and the cab fare both ways. The airport hotel was absolutely perfect for us! Reception was friendly and efficient, and our room was nicely appointed, comfortable and very clean. The hallways are a bit drab, but who cares? Not us. Our room was quite small, but for the two of us for one night, it wasn't uncomfortable in the least. If I had to find a complaint, it was that the bathroom door was "spring loaded" and would slam shut loudly if you didn't hold it until it closed...again, no big deal.
Oh, one more compalint, all though it's not technically the hotel's fault. When we booked our room online, the site we used said that there is a pool/spa. I don't know whether it's being redone or if it's just closed permanently, but it wasn't open. We weren't majorly disappointed, but somewhat.
We did a little "airport shopping" as we'd been traveling very no frills for over two weeks. I got my hair done at the shop beside the hotel, Hubby bought a "Cuban" shirt, and I picked up some cheap jewelry to liven up a simple dress, then we went out for an awesome meal at Catch of the Day just a couple minutes from the hotel, having gotten the excellent suggestion from a poster on the Tripadvisor Miami forum. It may have just been a layover, but we had a great time in Miami and will probably structure our trip similarly next year.
