Located just 1.5 miles from the airport, Element Miami International Airport is the perfect place for travelers to relax. It’s an easy 5-minute trip between MIA and the hotel, made even easier by our complimentary shuttle service, which runs every half-hour.

If you prefer the flexibility of your own car, you’ll find 16 rental car companies at the new MIA Rental Car Center, just 1 mile east of the airport and only two blocks from our hotel. Passengers can enjoy one-stop shopping for all their rental car needs in one stunning 6,500-vehicle facility. White shuttle buses take travelers to and from the Rental Car Center, with pick-ups on the lower levels and drop-offs on the upper levels of MIA terminals. The shuttle bus service will be replaced entirely in fall 2011 with the MIA Mover, an elevated, 1.25-mile automated system that can transport 3,000 passengers per hour between MIA and the MIA RCC, reducing gas emissions at the airport by 30 percent.

Whether or not you’re arriving by plane, having a car will enhance your visit to the Miami area, making it easy to reach nearby offices and attractions. If you prefer not to drive, we would be happy to call a taxi for you. Stop by the front desk once you arrive to get more details and advice.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
