“Great Location and Good Value for the Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2008

This hotel caters to airline crewmembers. It is located about 15 minutes from the airport and I believe is the crew layover for several airlines, but it also opens its doors to crew personel when they are looking for a little R&R.
We've travelled to the hotel on a few occasions and find the location convenient and the pool area and beach area just fine. While it's not a "resort", for $99/ night, you get a clean room, clean bathroom, mini refrig, and beer for $1/ can down at the pool.
In the 60's and 70's I'm sure this hotel was a great hangout. The ambience of the hotel is really neat. It reminds me of the type of place Pan Am crews would stay back in the days when the industry was considered "professional" and following the theme of "work hard, play harder".
The hotel is has very few rooms with full views of the ocean so if you're looking for this, you'll be disappointed. The photos listed by other reviewers are pretty accurate. The televisions and channels are anything but up to date, as is the furniture, so if you're looking for up to date modern amenities, you'll be disappointed here as well, but the hotel is QUIET.

Because this is a crew layover hotel, you don't have to worry about loud obnoxious people. Most are here to get some sleep, sun, and then get on to their next trip. You can bring kids, but they really need to be quiet and respectful at this hotel. There weren't many when we were there, but they enjoyed it just the same.

The pool is very big and plenty of chairs abound. In the morning, there is a continental breakfast you can partake in (nothing more than what you would see at a Comfort Inn), and they provide papers and a big screen t.v. for crew in the lounge area.

The pool has beers you can buy from a vending machine as well as stores across the street where you can get liquor, pizza, sushi, a Walgreens and Publix.

The hotel is immediately on the beach. There aren't any chairs, so it's a matter of getting a beach mat or taking a towel with you to the ocean. It's very nice part of Miami beach. Not a lot of kids and tourists in the area.

There are several small restaurants in the area you can walk to for dinner or lunch. South Beach is a hike the other direction, so if you're planning on seeing the lights, taxi's are just around the corner from the hotel.

High season runs November - May and rooms are $125 / night. Low season are $99

This place is extremely well worn, but my rooms have always been clean and tidy. The bathrooms have been renovated, with plenty of hot water, water pressure, and decent showerheads. I have stayed in far more expensive Miami hotels that have the same musty smell caused by the very humid climate. The AC is non adjustable in the rooms I have stayed in, it's either on or off, with some strange 'trap door' controlled by a string and foam padding...it's a unique system, to say the least....The staff could not be any more friendly, and the all-crew atmosphere makes for some fun around the pool. It's great to be right on Miami Beach, too! I enjoy staying here, but it most certainly would not be everyone's cup of tea.

  • Liked — staff, beach location, crew atmosphere
  • Disliked — lack of temp control in room

The "Sherry" is known around the world by Airline personnel as it's THE hotel that most crews stay in while laying over in Miami. It has great amenities and a beautiful lobby. The management and employees couldn't be any nicer! Rooms are very clean and quaint. Furniture seems a bit dated, but the beds are very comfortable. Make sure you stop at the bar, as it's the best deal in Miami Beach for drink prices!
Beautiful pool tables and a great complimentary breakfast buffet in the morning.
Oh, did I mention the Beer Honor Bar by the pool? Beers are a buck, you pick your preffered and slip the dollar in the slot!!!! Wow. Thanks to the Sherry for a very pleasant stay!
Do not call unless you work in the Airline business....

The "Sherry" is a long-time friend to airline crews from all over the world. No civilians, just glamorous airline personnel on overnights.

It's decor is Art-Deco, dating back to the 50's. The staff is most pleasant and helpful, Most important is that you cannot book this hotel unless you are an active crew member for an airline. This makes it a most pleasant experience!

The Sherry makes everyone feel like family!!!

First of all, ***this hotel is for Airline employees and their accompanying friends and family only***. So before contacting this hotel, please keep that in mind. This was the only hotel I could book for Feb 2-4th, 2007 because it was Superbowl weekend. They do have standard rates throughout the year, so you don't have to worry about prices going up because of an event. Anyway, my friends and I had arrived at the hotel about 2 a.m., so we were ready to get out and explore Miami. When we arrived at the hotel to check in we were quickly given our room key, which was in the south building on the 9th floor. We thought it a little odd that our door had a Privacy Please sign on the door knob, but we thought it may have been left there by accident. So we used our key to walk in the door and surprise, there's someone in the bed. So we went back downstairs to the lobby and asked for a second room. We were given a room on the 10th floor in the south building, we got all the way back upstairs, and again there was a Privacy Please sign on the door. So we decided to knock. And we hear "Who is it?" from the other side of the door. So we go back downstairs and ask the front desk man if he can check to make sure no one is in the room before giving us a room. Finally, 3rd times a charm, our last room was empty. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful. It's not the best hotel, but it's definitely not the worst. We tried to go swimming on saturday, but the pool was freezing cold. The beach is beautiful though. The hotel is pretty far from South Beach, so you will have to drive a distance. But we felt it worth it seeing that every other property was either sold out or too expensive.
