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.

Nice hotel

I went to the pool right when I got to the hotel--the chairs and decor was lovely! The pool area wasn't the greatest--especially b/c they were doing work at the same time (so it was dusty). It would have been nice if there was someone there to ask if I wanted something to drink. But all in all, loved the experience. What kind of turned me off was in the room itself, I was wearing socks and afterwards the bottom was turning brown... steam clean the carpets :/ But the staff was AMAZING. La Riviera was awesome (the restaurant near the bar at the hotel). The beds were heavenly. :D

Very good stopover from a cruise

Only one night stay. Impressed by the driver on the complementary airport to hotel van. [...] He offered a bottle of water to start and described the avaiable amenaties before we arrived.The hotel was old but very plush resturant, lounge and grounds. The rooms were very spacious, bathrooms old but clean.

Fantastic and Amazing hotel

The hotel was very quiet and beautiful and the staff was most friendly and courteous. I have never been to a hotel where the individual checking you in came frm behind the counter to give you a hand shake, at that point I knew my experience would be amazing

Like sleeping in a cloud

This hotel is GREAT!! The service is top notch. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. Sleeping in the beds are like sleeping in a cloud. The whole bed is full of feathers: feather matress, feather pillows, feather comforter. Great location for a first night stay; close to the airport and car rental sites. Would DEFINITELY come to this hotel again.

Sofitel Miami

Upon arriving to the Sofitel Miami, my group was met with courtious doormen and desk clerks. Our room was beautiful, clean, and we felt comfortable staying there. The pool area was great to relax and hang out at. The cost to stay there was so reasonable, that next year my friends and I will be booking rooms at Sofitel. I can not emphasize how great of a place it is.

great service

Friendliest, most helpful staff I have ever encountered, including some five star resorts I've visited. Room very nice, but beginning to show its age. The food is excellent, but it does have a french twist and may not be your style if your looking for typical american food.(although they do have an excellent cheeseburger) Right next to airport, was very convenient, called the hotel at 1:30 am and the shuttle bus was there in five minutes.
