i've spent a lot of time in South Beach and stayed at a lot of the South Beach group hotels. The whitelaw hotel so far is my favorite! This is definitely a party hotel, but that's partly what I liked about it. And I could never hear any of the noise in my room. Karaoke in the lobby was hilarious!... More

I loved this idea of this hotel. It's really cute and I like the theme. Staff are ok not 5* though, could be a little happier to be there, some where better than others. But overall its a nice day or two hotel, no longer though. Close to the beach and 15/20 min walk to the Lincoln road mall. There... More

Great value and fun tiny lobby bar with very engaging and friendly staff. Free Happy Hour for guests each night and a great place to stop for a night cap at the end of the day. Just a very short walk to the beach so ideal for a long weekend getaway and in the heart of the art Decco district.... More

Stayed here one night in December. Staff was very friendly from the front desk staff to the bar tender at happy hour. Room was clean, and decorated so cute! It is definitely a "party"-type hotel, with a DJ in the lobby until about midnight, but I was so tired I didn't really care. I did run into an issue though.... More

Bait&Switch: Putting out the happy-hour sign to attract people, and then charging exorbitant full prices for relatively basic drinks (plus a strange "hotel fee") is just bad style. Lots of hotel guests with all-inclusive drinks in cheap plastic cups. The bar area seemed cluttered. On the plus side: nice deco, a DJ and a friendly lady bartender.

I stayed at this property about 3 years ago and remembered some staff (Guillermo, Andrew and Sterling) who made my stay the best and was hoping for a similar experience even if there was new staff. The cons: the staff - Low and behold this was not the case. Firstly: Since the time of check in the attitude of the... More

I stayed at the Whitelaw during Art Basel and it was super convenient to get to all of the shows. Most of them were walking distance.

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon to stay one night before our cruise. Our flight came in very early in the morning.
