MIAMI—The Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, managed by Hersha Hospitality Management, has completed an expansive $10-million dollar transformation.
Led by hospitality design firm, Puccini Group, the enhancements include all of the 405 guestrooms, lobby, outdoor pool and the entryway of the property.
The hotel has direct pedestrian access to the airport and the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), which provides direct connections to South Beach and Brickell.
The arrival experience at the hotel begins with a refreshed entryway and porte cochere leading into a redesigned lobby. Incorporated into the space are geometric shapes, colorful artwork and greenery. Contemporary lounge seating is installed throughout and screened by partial link walls, creating a space that can be both social and semi-private.
Adjacent to the Miami River and Melreese Golf Course, the hotel’s pool has indigenous plants, upgraded fabrics and a range of statement seating options.
Adjacent to the poolside area, dining is available al fresco on the patio of the Rickenbacker, the hotel’s flagship restaurant. Additional indoor dining options include MbarK, offering cocktails and bistro-style fare.
Guestrooms have a primarily neutral palette paired with eclectic furniture pieces and patterns in the form of a custom textile headboard and touches of color. Each room also features updated bathrooms and signature Sheraton beds along with 37-in. flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet, an oversized work desk with a Herman Miller ergonomic chair. A number of guestrooms also have views of the city.
In addition, there is 17,000 sq. ft. of renovated, custom-built event space that can cater to groups of 30 to 300 and is located on a single floor.
