General

Just five minutes from Miami International Airport, the hotel often hosts business travelers and visitors heading to nearby Coral Gables.

 

The hotel is a stylish alternative to more conventional environments for corporate events. Parlor rooms are decorated with a striking Bird of Paradise motif in green, orange, gold and blue and cater to smaller groups. A sizeable terrace moves the networking outside for parties of up to 700. Zebra prints lend whimsy to and lighten the formality of executive events.

Location

Executive travelers with an eye for design will feel at home at this European-style hotel. The 218-room property is set on a picturesque blue lagoon. The building captivates with bold details such as a grand tiled lobby with red leather club chairs and a wrought-iron banister and Art Deco lighting fixtures. Guest rooms deliver their own sense of style with abstract artwork, piped sofas and camel-colored upholstery. The outdoor pool is dramatic and has a waterfall cascading from a red canopy. 

Dining
  • Miami International Airport (3 miles)
  • Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (28 miles)
Rooms

Carpeted rooms tastefully incorporate familiar zebra prints. Beige upholstery and walls keep the focus on artful accessories, such as abstract paintings and framed black-and-white photos. Each room has either a king bed or two double beds, a view of the Miami skyline or blue lagoon, free bottled water upon arrival and feather bed and duvet. Guests can access Wi-Fi for an additional fee.

The staff was helpful - the accomodations clean and comfortable. The bed and linens were great. I would recommend the hotel to any traveler.

Great hotel to unwind.

It was pouring rain the entire time we were there. Being stuck at the hotel wasn't a bad deal at all. Staff is very friendly. It has a nice lounge and pool to relax. We were surprised at the quality of the restaurant. Usually it's over priced "fine dining", but the food and service was actually great. Room was very clean and the bed very plush. It's right near the airport but not near anything else unless you have a car. There was a nearby Cuban place we walked to that had great food as well.

Fantastic night in paradise

We arrived from the Ft. Lauderdale airport and spent the evening at the hotel before traveling the next day on an NCL cruise. The room was great with a great view, and the bed was exquisite. We enjoyed food in LeBar and watched the sundown by the pool. The "Sobed" combination was so soft and comfortable that we melted into it.

Convenience and comfort!

We have used Sofitel in Miami whenever we are traveling in the area. The beds are like sleeping on clouds...which is great because we are usually tired when arriving here. The rooms are quiet. The service is exemplary...quick, friendly, unobtrusive. We will definitely stay at the Sofitel on our next trip.

stylish, close to the airport

I love Sofitel for always being so stylish and this location didn't disappoint in that regard. Just a few minutes from the airport, it still manages a great view across the pool of a large lagoon with fountains (or the highway -depending). I arrived late and ended up in a smoking room, offset by upgrade to a suite. Fitness center was well equipped. My room was nice, but was showing some wear, like scuffs on the walls, chipped paint. Lobby spaces are gorgeous.
