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.

Birthday Getaway

The WhiteLaw is very retro looking.. I was startled when I walked into the bright room with red polkadots all over the ceiling. Over all though, the hotel staff was great, room sizes are good and bedding was clean.

Surprisingly pleased

This hotel is in the heart of all the action. The rooms are a startling white but very comfortable. The food was great but it is separate from the hotel so it must be paid for separately as well, which is a bit inconvenient. The staff is absolutely amazing, friendly and extremely helpful. They do not have a parking area so you either pay $1.50 an hour to park on the street, park in some car park for $20 a night which is not right next door, or use their valet service for $30 or so a night which is totally worth it. My only complaint is the noise and inconsiderateness of the other guests. I was awakened two nights in a row with loud, drunk, obnoxious screaming at 3:30 and 4:00am. I did complain to the desk, who came up the first night but it still happened the 2nd night. Can't blame the staff for that. So if you're looking for comfort and great service, this is the place although not all that quiet.

family with teens

let me start off by saying that we love miami, the hotel location is great one street away from ocean drive, the decor rocks, the rooms are so pretty and clean but I suggest you bring your own towels..seems like the towels are counted, it took forever to get clean towels, when they say check in is at 3 they mean it.85$$ at check out..no pool , sun deck closes at 7:30pm..too early. the bar in the lobby is cool and the young epole that work there are awesome like Leon..and one of the desk clerks John is totally cool...we had a good time , nice place but again those towels!!!

Nice!

It was a great looking hotel but once you go into the bathroom it doesn't fit the theme!! You can barely even fit in the bathroom!

Good Happy Hour

The Hotel overall was good. The atmosphere was fun but the front desk personnel lacked all and any sense of customer service. The rooms are quite small and the bathrooms are in a desperate need of renovation. The walls are paper thin but the Happy Hour is killer!

Right in the heart of south beach

Whitehall is great for a younger party crowd. If you want noise and loud music till 3 am that you can hear in your room than this is for you. Staff at front desk was nice. House keeping only gave us one towel per person and had to keep asking for more towels. Bathroom very small. So if you just need a place to lay your head and wash this hotel is for you. I did love the decor'.

Great South Beach Feel

This is a great little getaway spot for young couples or singles. The location couldn't have been any better. One block away from the beach and all the amazing little restaurants on the strip. The hotel staff were wonderful and extremely friendly. For a holiday weekend the prices for the rooms was great. The decore of the hotel itself was really eye catching and unique, just had to mention that. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Happy hour every night from 7-8 and good music, great way to start off any night in South Beach.
