The Puccini Group, an internationally recognized hospitality firm, has completed its $10 million renovation of the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center. The transformation includes all 405 guest rooms, the lobby, outdoor pool, and entryway of the property. The hotel, while still remaining true to the original Sheraton atmosphere and style many guests know and love, now features a modern tropical-resort-like feel.

“We believe that this fresh new look will elevate the guest experience at every touch point of our hotel, far above and beyond the convenience of being the closest hotel to the airport and a number of Miami’s most popular attractions,” says Dan McDermott, general manager. “This thoughtful and seamless redesign caters to the needs and necessities that are important to the diverse group of travelers we welcome each day at our hotel and Executive Meeting Center.”

The hotel is managed by Hersha Hospitality Management.The hotel is the closest hotel in the area to the Miami International Airport and boasts direct pedestrian access to both the airport and the Miami Intermodal Center, providing easy-access connections to South Beach and Brickell. 

All rooms feature updated bathrooms and an array of amenities, including a 37” flat-screen TV,  high-speed internet and an oversized work desk with a Herman Miller ergonomic chair and conveniently placed electrical outlets. There is now 17,000 square feet of recently renovated, custom-built event space, which can accommodate groups of 30 to 300. As the only International Association of Conference Centers certified hotel in South Florida, meeting planners and business travelers can rest assured in the hands of the hotel’s dedicated IACC-trained staff, including an Executive Meeting Center Concierge. Additional perks include a 24-hour Club Lounge, fitness center, preferred rates at the renowned Melreese Golf course and complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle.

Discover Puerto Rico, the island’s first-ever Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), has reported that in the past year, the island had its highest revenue and visitors numbers of all time. This is largely due to the DMO’s campaign “CoverTheProgress,” which encourages media outlets to highlight Puerto Rico’s progress and beauty, rather than the devastation.
