Recent guest reviews

Was a good location close to beach and shops the beds were quite comfy free drinks hit the spot we enjoyed our stay

First of all it took me an hour and half to check in. I arrived at 3:30 pm. She finished the booking and after I paid the deposit, she said ten minutes and the room would be ready; it took almost an hour to hand me the key. The room was clean and comfortable. The second terrible thing is the safe. I put my stuff in encluding my wallet which has my ID in because I was going to the beach. I made sure my code is working three times. Then at night when I was planning to go out, I tried to open it to take my wallet many times, it never oppenened and I called to get help, they said they can do nothing till morning until the maintenance guy wakes up and comes to open it for me to take my wallet and drive back home. So my night was messed up :(

cant say enough good things about this place. not only did they help me with my strange booking habits, they upgraded me at no charge. my room was ready with a smile when i arrived after a late flight. the room was super clean and comfortable and they always made sure i had what i needed. the vegan place next door was amazing- super tasty and super healthy. perfect for the tropical weather. big high five and thank you to the whitelaw staff! cant wait to come back! a very friendly and welcoming place to be. it felt like staying at a friend's house.

I booked in January for April for a double bed room, I get there and check in and the hotel staff tell me they don't have no double bed rooms only single and they couldn't do anything about. I had to show emails and confirmations showing this and it took them a hour to figure out how to get me what I reserved. If you do go there call a week in advance just to make sure you don't have to go through what I went through.

Great location, one block from the beach. Staff members are super friendly. The rooms are clean and the cleaning staff appear to work hard to maintain this. I have stayed at this hotel on three different occasions. Great time!

Good hotel for the price . Close to ocean drive and the beach . They have a happy hour everyday

Great small hotel. Staff was Uber friendly and the rooms are decorated really nice

Good stay would do it again great location also next to the beach ...

Everything was great, absolutely no complaints! Loved the location and very nice staff!

I stayed that this hotel for the weekend I came from New York and it was pretty great the staffs and the rooms were excellent I would highly recommend this hotel

First of all we asked for a king size bed and got a 2 full The room was very small but the hotel was very convenient to the beach restaurants and bars/clubs also that made up for the hotel and also the parking garage was not too far from the hotel $20 was better than 42$ a night.

Nice hotel, overall I really liked it. The only downfall was that it was just me and my boyfriend and they gave us a 2 bed room instead of just one bed room. They had no other room available. Other than that, it's close to the beach, a block away from ocean drive where all the bars/restaurants are located. It's definitely a great hotel if you want to have fun. They also have free happy hour for hotel guests from 7-8pm, Nate was a great bartender! I would definitely plan on staying here again.

Cute boutique hotel in a convenient area. Other than the fact that if you're on the first floor it can get quite noisy at night this hotel is overall great.

Booked this hotel and got great pricing and there was a complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Called the hotel to find the shuttle and they gave me decent enough directions. Check in was a little slow due to their room management system but the rooms are clean, modern enough and the location is A+ excellent. There is a great patio to people watch or enjoy a fine cup of Cuban coffee from their cafe and free happy hour is terrific.

I stayed at the hotel with my mom. We loved it. Very nice decor, clean, comfy room. Great staff! So friendly and helpful! Location is super convenient! 1 block away from the beach! Overall we were very satisfied! And free shuttle bus was also a great bonus:) recommend!

Excellent option for SB, room a little bit small, just Missed a closet, but after all great stay!

Everything was amazing except a few issues with the toilet being stopped up.. My gf & I loved the staff, especially Chad & Jose.. They were pretty awesome. It's a great location, very affordable, very comfortable, great drinks & hooka, the room was so cute, & the whole staff was great!

Friends and I were able to get a room at the Whitehall Hotel at the last minute for a quick trip to Miami and couldn't have been happier with this choice. The decor of the hotel was so stylish and fun, we took pictures all over the place. The staff was super-friendly and helpful and overall we had a great time. The one issue we had was the A/C turning off on us the first night. But the hotel responded quickly to repair it. We definitely would love to go back and spend some more time by the pool!

I received an upgrade to a bigger and nicer room down the street and could not be happier.

It was exactly as expected Bang for your buck. Nice for young girls. Maybe a bit girly for couples or older women. But it was Perfect for my sisters 21st Birthday. Prime location. Clean. No pool but who needs a pool when the beach is a few steps away. & shopping is literally next door. We didn't use the wifi so... no comment on that.
