“Nice crew hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Sherry is an airline crew only hotel, not accesible for the general public. The outside has an art deco feel. The pool area is nice and at the back there is a direct entrance to the beach.
The owners are renovating and updating the property little by little. Some areas, like the lobby look nice, staying inline with the tradition of the hotel. Other areas, like the breakfast room could use a make over.
The rooms are spacious and clean, maybe just not the most modern and luxurious. There is a little fridge and an in-room safe.
The staff at the reception is accomodating to help crew members with their specific needs, especially the General Manager Paul is very nice.
The best thing about the Sherry is probably the location and the availability of free parking space closeby.

I have stayed @ this hotel as a Flight Attendant. The location is perfect!!! You can walk to grocery stores & place in your refrigerator(in room). You can even have a BBQ on the beach. This hotel sits right on the beach. Laundry room on the premises to wash those bathing suits. Breakfast is served from 5:00am to 11:00am- that is great extended hours for us on different time zones.

Great location for the beach. That's about it. Elevator broke while I was inside of it. My key wouldn't open the gate from the beach to pool, and a rude man (not from the US) had the nerve to say... "Don't your hands work?" Disgusted. Flight was delayed and requested late check out. Nasty chubby bald old man said "we do not offer that here" lobby and rooms stink. No food except gross coffee and cereal in the morning. I'll stay again if it's free.

Great 50's era hotel. Welcoming staff and a at-home feel. Pool table, internet and cool little lounge. Nothing fancy, just the way I like it. Peaceful areas to read on a rainy night. They even have a small library.

This is basically an airline crew hotel & as an airline crew member I'm appalled that we still stay here. I think it's been maybe 8 years since I've been here & after my most recent visit in January I can say that I will NEVER stay here again unless forced by an unexpected layover through my job. Don't get me wrong, the staff is very nice & by the way the same in all of the years we've stayed here. The hotel simply needs a complete make-over & the housekeeping staff need to be retrained in cleaning rooms. I didn't want to touch anything knowing that it had a good 20 years of usage. The carpet looks disgusting. The bathroom wasn't cleaned very well, with visible, let's call it nose residue on the walls (disgusting patrons, there are tissues in the bathroom).
Yes the location is great but there are plenty of nice hotels in Miami Beach that are in far better shape than the Sherry. This used to be one of my favorite domestic layovers, but I will not do a MIA layover trip until my airline pulls out of this hotel.

As a crew member this is more a airlines crew hotel. Been staying here on and off for over 15 years. At first the room were old and not well kept up. Over the pass 10 years there have been trying to up the room. The carpet is still old looking and need to be clean or replace. Yes, the elevator are not the best, but for a very old hotel is has a great pool area, alot of place to get a great meal. There is access to the beach and walking area.

In the morning you can get a free breakfast....but egg and other items do cost.

Alot of airlines use this hotel for there crews...

The rooms A/C can be to cold or to hot at time....if all go on want tower you are in..
