Rated 4 out of 5 by HoWgia Nice and comfort place for the weekend.
We stopped by Miami after our trip from Machu Picchu, Peru and stayed in Sheraton (Airport) in Miami.
The room was very nice, staff was friendly and helpful. We liked the location close to airport for convenience.
Only thing did bother us was Sheraton did not install key access restriction in the elevators or any access to the facilities, it seemed like anyone can go in and out of the hotel at will without any need for key card.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Desertlady A three day stay
This Sheraton was a good choice for us because it is at the airport for accessibility. We made a reservation online and confirmed a King room on the Club floor. It was confirmed and printed for us. When we checked in we were told the Club floor was not available with a king bed. The best she could do was on the 9th floor. Our first room #906 had problems. The first happening (within 5 minutes of arrival) was that toilet tissue holder fell off the wall. It appeared that the base of the fixture was broken for some time. Then the shower would not drain. NOT AT ALL. Yes, we knew how to set it for showering, but we had to "prop it open" in order for it to drain. This was done with the handle of a disposable razor (in its package). Third, the wastebasket had not been emptied under the desk. It was full of food trash wrappings, etc. We phoned down in the morning to ask to be moved. We were told the 10th floor was still unavailable, but that we could be moved to the 2 story suite right next door. Room 908 with the bedroom upstairs. The room worked okay, but the air conditioning on the upper area is quite noisy.
The front desk ladies Veronica and Agar were very helpful and courteous. Mayling Marenco in the Club Lounge was very friendly and attentive. The gentlemen at the "Bellman" desk were very energetic, and helpful and attentive. We appreciated that very much.
Yes there was construction in the lobby area, but that is necessary to update and improve the hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wigstheome Indifferent Staff and Service
Checked in on a Thursday night. Front desk acknowledged my Platinum status, but no upgrade was offered -- haven't stayed here before so don't know if upgrades are frequent/infrequent. Room (1050) was perfectly acceptable and reasonably renovated. Very little noise from airport. One drawback was an ineffective HVAC unit that never got the room cool. Room service was delivered late, but the food was reasonably well prepared.
Did not receive a wake up call despite the prior evening's request. Next discovered that the shower was broken and could not be turned on. Housekeeping clearly didn't care enough to report it. When I told the front desk, I was simply thanked for pointing it out. No offer to have it fixed, my room changed, or any help of any kind. That type of indifferent and failed service is why I will neither recommend or stay at this hotel again.

I have had the pleasure to stay at this property several times this year. The entire staff, from the GM on down, are all highly professional, friendly and very accomodating to my needs.
The suite I was given was beyond expectations. The Club Lounge provided excellent morning and evening choices. The property location, on a river accross from a golf course, is very attractive. The fitness center contains all the equipment one could need. Even though the hotel is located in proximity to Miami Airport, we rarely heard any plane traffic !!
In addition, the restaurant, Rickenbecker, has an excellent menu and first rate food.
I look forwaed to many more visits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buddyintx Positive first experience
In the process of switching program loyalties from Marriott to SPG so I thought I'd give the MIA Sheraton a try over its newer sister property down the street (The Element). Great check-in experience as the two young ladies who welcomed me to hotel and checked me in were polite, pleasant and professional. Thanked me for being a SPG a Preferred member and offered me an upgrade to an Allergy-Free room. Room was of average quality for what I paid. Air conditioner was struggling to maintain 68 degrees F. One of the three lights in the bathroom was blown out and the vanity mirror in the bathroom was inoperative and coming loose from the wall. Club Lounge was nice as SPG keeps lounge open 24 hours for water, snacks, coffee, etc. Overall, positive first stay as property is very conveniently located to MIA Airport but the furnishings and the decor of the rooms could use a face lift. Didn't use pool or fitness center so can't comment on those facilities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Expectans Interesting stay - at an Airport!
Good rate from SPG. Hard to work out exactly where the shuttle left from - its anywhere sensible along the second kerb (Departures).
Great views, nice restaurant food with occasional lunch buffets. Club Lounge food is fairly basic, but a pleasant place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RafKam Just OK
Managed to have enough disappointments in a one-night stay here: paying for parking at an airport hotel seems a bitter pill to swallow. Room was ok, didn't seem like a Platinum upgrade at all. Still, was quite comfortable and a good bad. A number of facilities were unavailable, like the Club Lounge, so a very basic breakfast buffet was offered (we're talking some pop tarts, filter coffee and bagels). Gym was also closed, so not much left in terms of facilities. The tiny pool could be appealing to kids, but anyone else would want to stay as little time as possible at this property, which is exactly what I did.
