Sheraton reflags former Miami Airport Wyndham

MIAMI Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has reflagged the former Wyndham Miami Airport Hotel as Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center.

Owned by Thayer Lodging Group, the 405-key property has recently undergone extensive upgrades prior to opening as a Sheraton.

“Starwood has done an excellent job enhancing the Sheraton brand. 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,” says Carroll Warfield, Thayer’s managing director of operations and asset management. “We look forward to turning on the power of Starwood and reaching even more travelers through the innovative and award-winning Starwood Preferred Guest program.”

Boasting panoramic city and water views, Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel & Executive Meeting Center is nestled on the banks of the Miami River, just four miles from downtown Miami. The property includes 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including 20 conference rooms and a 4,000-sq.-ft. ballroom. Other amenities include a health club, outdoor pool and bar, full-service restaurant, club floor and complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle service. Miami’s Melreese Golf Course is located adjacent to the property, offering 18-holes of championship golf.

Following further renovations, the reconfigured lobby will soon feature the brand’s signature social lounge Link@Sheraton Experienced with Microsoft.

“This new Sheraton in Miami is representative of the brand’s strategic growth in key markets across the United States, not only through new-builds, but also through conversion opportunities,” says Paul Sacco, Starwood’s senior vice president of North America development. “The Sheraton brand’s comprehensive revitalization has significantly improved guest satisfaction and loyalty, which in turn has greatly increased the brand’s appeal among owners and developers. As a result, Sheraton is leading Starwood’s market-share growth.”
