The hotel itself is nice looking. However, it is noisy like others have stated. Luckily, we were in the back of the hotel and really couldn't hear the music from the bar area. The hotel is very close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Check in was a little slow but check out was fast. All the staff were nice... More

After extending my stay in South Beach I checked into this hotel after being unhappy with my previous choice. The location is great with all the major retail stores just outside and a five minute walk to Ocean Drive. The room's size was very spacious and the decor interesting. I was on the third floor so never had any noise... More

The WhiteLaw hotel is an absolute joke. I planned a trip to Miami for my mother's 50th birthday and booked the WhiteLaw as our lodging option. Never. Again. Upon arrival, the front desk charged my mom's Amex the full price of booking plus an additional $100 as a deposit for any occurring room damages. I've never stayed at a hotel... More

My husband and I stayed there for a weekend and it was awesome! Location, price, and service were just perfect. It became our number 1 option whenever we are going to South Beach. I highly recommend this hotel but not as a family option, just be aware that it gets a little loud in the lobby

Hello Adriana D!! It seems like you had such a lovely time staying with us! From the location, to the price, and the service that we provided you with. It does tend to get a bit noisy here. It clearly states this on our website, as we are a party hotel. We hope to host your next stay at Whitelaw!... More

For the price and location this hotel is ok. What set it apart was the great customer service I received upon check-in by Nicolas. He completely accommodated my children and I and was very pleased he was able to do so. This definitely says a lot about a hotel when you feel your needs will be met. Thanks Nicolas for... More

This is an absolutely disgusting establishments who treats a potential guest with no consideration whatsoever. They will also charge your card without authorization and you can't even speak to a manager on the phone. The front desk personal has no communication skills or manners either.
