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.

Bring ear plugs

The room was relatively comfortable, but small. The staff was friendly. The only problem.... don't expect to sleep. On Sunday night, they had loud & horrible karaoke going until late in the night. I would never stay in this hotel again. For $200+, it would have been nice to have slept. Also, the WIFI was horrible. Since sleep wasn't an option, I tried to get on facebook, netflix, anything & it was so so so slow.

Great "Budget" Getaway

The hotel has it's own them. Great Lamps and Furniture at the Lobby. The rooms are VERY small and sometime on a weird shape. Bathroom is super small as well but the PRICE was really good and considering you don't spend much time at the Hotel while you are in Miami, it's great. I recommended, Great Value for the money, they also have a shuttle bus service from and to the airport, you just have to coordinate in advance. Also free drinks, during happy hour in the afternoon.

funky and hip. great for a party night or quick drop in on South Beach

Just what you want in a Miami hotel on South beach - funky, Art Deco, Euro feel. nice bar and great front deck to relax. Walking about here is great in the evening or in the morning as you are only 1 block off the beach. Go find the Al Pacino "scarface" shooting location it just around the corner. Not a hotel for kids or those looking for a quite seculed time but this place is a real fun spot for couples or small groups. Parking was a bit tricky but can be found. Room was clean, staff was excellent. Nice price! Hotel rooms are small but charm is what you get here. Some of the neg reviews on this page are from folks looking for the amenities like the ones offered at big major chain hotels. Hey that is great - book your travel to Des Moines and keep us posted. I will take the Cuban café around the corner from this great little hotel.

Cute but wouldn't go back

Room was VERY small as was the bathroom. Could never get hot water for the shower. Phone in room didn't work and I asked front desk to replace the phone - they never did. No alarm clock or coffee in the room. Rooms were noisy. If you're very young and won't be in the room much, then this may be the place for you. Stylish and cute. Open bar? Not really. You pay $15/day at check in for "amenities" Staff was nice and you are very close to the beach.

Lovely Birthday Weekend

This hotel was perfect for me. I've been to Miami before and stayed ok "the strip" Ocean Drive, but that becomes annoying after the first night. Whitelaw is right on Collins away from the chaos but only a block away from it for your convenience. I feel like it's in the middle of everything that you go to south beach to do. The staff was amazing and very helpful. Nick at the front desk was very cool. They got themselves a loyal customer I will be staying at the whitelaw for all my south beach travels. P.S. They have open bar everyday from 7-8 for their guest and they also do karaoke. Fun

Great location, lot of noise

Hotel was OK for the price. Our room's door opened to a hallway which was not separated at all from the noisy bar area.
