New Sheraton Opens at Miami International Airport

Having undergone extensive upgrades, the former Wyndham Miami Airport Hotel has reopened as the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced this week.

Located less than a quarter mile from Miami International Airport, the hotel — which is owned by Thayer Lodging Group — has 405 guest rooms and a 20,000-square-foot Executive Meeting Center that is the first full-service facility of its kind in South Florida.

"We are thrilled to grow our presence in Florida with the opening of Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, where business and leisure guests will enjoy resort amenities, as well as convenient proximity to the airport and Miami's leading attractions," said Hoyt Harper, senior vice president of Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. "This hotel will exemplify the new look and feel of Sheraton following the brand's recently completed $6 billion brand-wide revitalization, including $400 million in signature brand initiatives designed to create community and make it easy to stay connected."

Along with its conference center, which includes 20 meeting rooms and a 4,000-square-foot ballroom, the hotel includes a health club, an outdoor pool and bar, a full-service restaurant, a Club floor and golf at the adjacent Melreese Golf Course.

"Starwood has done an excellent job enhancing the Sheraton brand," said Carroll Warfield, Thayer Lodging Group's managing director of operations and asset management. "We are delighted to fly the Sheraton flag at Miami's leading business hotel, following an extensive investment in our property to meet the brand's new standards. We look forward to turning on the power of Starwood and reaching even more travelers."
