Close to the airport, but the restaurant was bad A review of Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel
We stayed two nights at the Wyndham Miami Airport in April 2004. We had a very early flight so we wanted to be close to the airport. That was the best part. Our room was clean and comfortable. However, because this hotel is close to the airport (probably the closest), they get a lot of "stopover" guests. In two nights stay, we heard four different guests on both sides of our room. One of the guest was yelling at his children, we could hear everything.
The front desk staff were somewhat friendly, but didn't go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The worst part was the breakfast buffet. It was rather expensive $15.00 per person (not kids), it took FOREVER for the waiter to bring me coffee. he skipped me and went to other guests who came in after we did. I finally had to ask the hostess. The french toast was hard and dry and the buffet was supposed to be open until 11:00, but they started to put everything away at 10:30am. so I didn't get to eat as much as I wanted.
The pool was clean and quiet, except for airplane noise. My kids really enjoyed it. However, there is a "nature" path on the otherside of the pool and my son's football landed in the creek (swamp, sewage run-off) on the other side. When I tried to fish it out with a stick, a very large, brown slithering creature went behind some rocks in front of me. Needless to say I forgot about the football. There was a very nice exercise room and sauna.
If you need a clean place to stay at a reasonable price, and is very close to the Miami Airport, then I would recommend this hotel. Just don't eat there.
