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.

ideal location

My friend and I just had a night layover in Miami and we found this adorable and amazing hotel. Being only a block from ocean Dr we had the perfect overnight. And who can argue with their free cocktail hour from 7-8 pm

Fantastic South Beach Vacay

I was blown away by the excellent hospitality of the Staff, from the greeting to the explanation of how it all works ! The bartender was RUDE, but other than that I will come back. Thanks for the hot deals ! Awesome skip to the beach, oh so relaxing, nice panty scene at night, and excellent peace in the morning at the beach ! Thanks !

Couples last minute trip

Booked our trip last minute for a great price. The Whitelaw is worth the price. The decor if really cool and ornant. Room was small with awesome decorations. Could have used more plugs and storage. Bathroom was huge but could have used more counter space. It was a handicap shower (we were told they were all the same) and the water went everywhere. We used most of out towels trying to contro the water flow. The hotel is one block from the beach... you cant beat the location. And the free happy hour was a great deal. The cost of alcohol in South Beach is crazy expensive. The free shuttle worked out great too.

Hit up Tap Tap for great Haitian food and killer mojitos. It is off the beaten path and away from the tourist traps.

Spring Break Getaway

Hotel was very cute & decent. Having a helpful staff like their front desk & bartender, was even better. Stayed here during Spring break & it was an unforgettable experience. It's all about fun & customer service.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

We usually rent a car everytime we go for a vacation but in South Beach if your hotel has shuttle service, take advantage of it. Night Life is a short drive in this area, you can take a cab & it would not cost a lot, besides your in vacation: drink, let loose, & have somebody do the driving for you.

Don't try to do work here.

Distressingly bad wifi, barely able to operate email, cellular Internet was far better. Valet takes ages to retrieve vehicle - faster/cheaper/easier to park in garage 2 blocks away. Otherwise, helpful staff, cool/quiet/comfortable room.

Spring getaway

The hotel had one of the most comfortable beds for a hotel that I have experienced. The staff was nice and gave good recommendations on restaurants. It's also close to everything and walking distance to the beach. Overall I had a good experience at whitelaw and would recommend my friends or family to stay there.

If Ocean Drive prices are a killer, try 11th Street Diner. It is a great place for any meal.

Couple's getaway

I like the hotel. It was good and a great location. The only thing was that the bathroom is really small. The construction in front of the building was a hassle but that wasn't the hotel fault.

Chic place right in heart of South Beach

We found this cute/chic hotel when stuck overnight at Miami airport and luckily they had a room available. It was really nice....clean, chic, loved the decor and chandeliers. Great bar right in lobby, bartender made great cosmos. Would definitely come back and a bonus was they had a free shuttle back to Miami airport which saved us $35 can ride.
