Miami International Airport (MIA) will be getting a new hotel with direct terminal access in winter 2026. The 451-room hotel was approved by the Miami-Dade County Commission in July and the airport shared the news today with a mock up of how the hotel will look.

The hotel will feature a spa, pool, fitness center, event space, full-service restaurant, and easy access to the airport (no taxi or shuttle required). A climate-controlled pedestrian bridge will connect the hotel to Concourse D, which is occupied by American Airlines. The Miami Herald reported that over the course of its 50-year lease, the Westin is expected to generate at least $250 million in revenue. The hotel’s owners will pay $2.58 million or 3.5% of the hotel’s gross revenue each year (whichever number is greater).

This is not the only on-site airport hotel in Miami. The Miami International Airport Hotel has been attached to the airport since 1960, but it’s in serious need of renovation. The modern Westin will be the easy choice for travelers once it opens.

Anthony’s Take: I am a big fan of hotels connected directly to airports when I have a cancellation or early flight. I hate stressing about shuttles or Uber rides. This is a welcome addition to Miami International Airport (MIA).
