Dramatic Miami International Airport hotel set on a blue lagoon

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. 

Highlights
  • French-styled, Art Deco luxury hotel on a blue lagoon
  • Free shuttle to and from Miami International Airport
  • La Riviera restaurant and Le Bar on site
  • Indoor and outdoor space for up to 700 guests
  • Outdoor pool and fitness center
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.

Features

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.

My review of Sofitel Miami

My first impression of the hotel is very classy and elegant. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, I don't like the location. There's not much to do around the area and the fitness center is small. The airport is a few minutes away so it's good for business trip. They also offered free shuttle bus to the airport every half an hour.

Great Getaway

The hotel was GREAT. I did not like the fact that when I go through Cheap Tickets.com, the hotel did NOT have my reservation and they had to call cheap tickets so that required me to wait with my husband which is NEVER a good experience. I had to pay $8.00 a day to park and cheap tickets does not tell you this info unless I missed it somewhere, I think the staff does not like it when we go through any other company for the reservations.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Even though the location is close to most everything, be prepared to get in HIGH VOLUME TRAFFIC which can take a while to get through. If you are going to the beach, be prepared to pay to park.
