South Beach boutique hotel glamour on a budget with free cocktail hour

This Collins Avenue hotel successfully spins Miami grandeur with its sparkly chandeliers and French-inspired furniture. But the hotel has a secret:  The Whitelaw Hotel caters to travelers on a budget. Even more delicious are the add-ons such as shuttle service to and from Miami International Airport, passes to local clubs and a free cocktail hour every night. The hotel is within walking distance to the beach and chic Collins Avenue.

Highlights
  • On chic Collins Avenue just a few blocks from clubs, shops and restaurants
  • Shuttle to and from Miami International Airport
  • Passes to local nightclubs
  • Free happy hour from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Jiminy Cricket restaurant serving light bites
Rooms

Rooms are big on visual pop -- as are the graffiti-inspired hallways that lead to them. The Whitelaw Hotel's rooms juxtapose stark white linens and tufted headboards with fuchsia walls. White chandeliers add an extra dose of opulence. Marble bathrooms stock pampering products. LCTVs and stereos with iPod docking stations are standard. South Beach guests might appreciate one more convenience: the fully stocked mini bar.

Entertainment

If a French courtesan took residence in modern day South Beach, she would be at home here. The lobby glistens with crystal chandeliers underneath black-and-white damask dome ceilings. The lobby hosts a free happy hour every night from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Ask about the nightclub passes at the front desk.

Dining

The on-site Jiminy Cricket cafe fuels beachgoers with light bites from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Items on the menu include panini, salads, sandwiches and toasted bread with Nutella, a signature breakfast item.

Outstanding Location

This hotel was close to everything. One block from ocean drive and the beach.The rooms were clean and bright. It had a free airport shuttle and a happy hour. The Whitelaw was an exceptional value for the money. I would definetely stay here again!

Great location & Overall Good Experience

Booked the hotel during the drive down from Orlando to Miami for a great price for LDW. Nice, bright looking boutique hotel, just as shown on pics; well kept. Greeted well and the room is what you could expect from pics and for the price and "small boutique style". Great location! Nice and fun ambiance in the lobby for the noscturnal hours and not too loud in the rooms if you want to sleep. It is SoBe after all, so when you get back from the long day, just hang at the bar and chill to some beats. I was w/ my fmily (including a 60 yr old and she enjoyed the stay). The elevator is tiny but you can request the bellboy to get your luggage to your room if not offered. And there's a complimentary HappyHour from 7-8pm to get your evening started off right! Would definitely go back for a stay and recommend is you are on the lookout to get a great value boutique hotel ( cozy, modern, fun & clean).

Unethical

Once we came back to home and after checking travel expenditures on my credit card, I noticed an extra charge from Whitelaw hotel. It is unethical your clerk have not mentioned anything about the charge at that very moment, so we can clarify any misinterpretation right away. And no say just “Everything is fine, you are set to go”.

Good Party Spot

Very festive, but the employees are not very friendly and attentive. This is my fourth time dealing with South Beach Hotel Group, and I will definitely continue to stay with them.

The hotel was ok. The room was very tiny. It was worth the price for a short visit.

I'd go back

The bed was comfortable and the staff was helpful. There's a free happy hour from 7-8 of well liquor drinks and it's for more of a younger crowd. If you're bringing your family down you should find a different place but I will definitely stay here again.
