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.

Hotel is clearly a standout in Sobe

Booked this hotel for a quick romantic get-a-way and loved the hotel. Perfect pink rooms (never seen this before) with a funky design and artist renderings on the hallways. Lobby is very cozy and the drinks are free during happy hour. Spend the days on the beach and shopping and the nights in the hotel bar.

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.

Comfortable rooms, Excellent Location, G

I have spent many nights in South Beach on business but this time was for pleasure. I didn't want to book a large impersonal hotel but a boutique historic hotel that the beach is known for. Based on price I selected this hotel and what great find. The reviews posted are so wrong! The staff was friendly considering that South Beach is not known for a Midwest outgoing personality +. Location – can't beat it and within walking distance to everything (don't rent a car – waste of $$ plus Valet is very expensive). The shuttle service the hotel provides is a great services and I love the fact that it is free.

Beautiful Hotel!

Came with a few of the girls to get away for a weekend. LOVED the decor of the Whitelaw... clean and crisp white with bright pick accents! sooo chic...we were able to walk around all the best shops and drop our bags off as much as we wanted due to the fantastic location, right in the middle of all the shops! Bar was amazing, great drinks! Shuttle form aiport to hotel was awesome and the driver was hilarious! all in all great time!

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!
