“Definitely Straight-Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

On the recommendation of my friend who lives in Miami, I booked a three-day stay en route to the Yucatan. After I made my nonrefundable reservation, I began having second thoughts. Had I gotten myself into a nonstop Dancing Queen disco nightmare? Much to my delight, the guests were mostly grownups and a lot of fun. The staff is terrific. I don't need a pool or restaurant on site, but having a good bar ( and bartender) is definitely a plus. I'd definitely stay there again.

Well located with beatiful and elegant rooms. The place has good facilities (sauna is great) but we missed somebody who speaks spanish. There is no breakfast at all! though there is a funny party on friday at night that somehow could solve this dawback :-)

I am a single, straight female who needed a place to stay for a night while I was in town on business. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Very hipster. Well designed room. Comfortable, clean room. Cute coffee shop. Great pastries. Business/reading room has brick walls and plenty of room to stretch out, work and relax. the spa is male-only, but I was there for just a night and didn't really need a spa anyways. I wouldn't recommend this a a place to stay with kids. Kitschy signs all over the place and in the rooms are super funny, but not necessarily kid-friendly. If you're uptight and potentially not comfortable with the gay scene or don't have a bit of a crude sense of humor, this may not be your place. Otherwise, I highly recommend. Fun, hip, spacious, clean, and great location.

Me and my partner booked this trip at the last minute since we both had never been to Miami. The grounds were immaculate and the staff were so pleasant. Hi Matt! He made the best iced coffee! My partner loved it! The room was spacious, clean, and seemed like it came out of Fangtasia in True Blood lol (not a bad thing!). It was slightly risque with dildos in the vending machine, but it was part of the kitsch.

Only problem was that I guess our room was above the bar and it was very loud until like 3 am. Yes, I know we were on Miami Beach, but I am an old soul lol. I can't do all night benders lol. Also there were some loud guests in the adjacent room at like 2 in the afternoon. We called downstairs but I guess that didn't deter them.

However, that alone did not mar the experience. It was a great place that didn't feel like a seedy gay hotel. It was close to everything (although parking would be nice). Staff was great! If I ever come to Miami Beach again, I would stay here.

Room Tip: Maybe choose a room that's not right above the bar? We were on the 2nd Floor right above where t...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Gaythering is Miami Beach only "Hetero Friendly" hotel where everyone over the age of 18 is welcome. Located on Prestigious Lincoln Road, behind the building original facade, nothing has been spared to provide a unique experience. The amenities reflect the fact that luxury is no longer about spending the most money. It is about getting the best value and being made to feel special. The lobby is the heart of the hotel, a communal space where guests and locals can "gayther" for a coffee, a drink, a bite to eat, use the library unless they prefer to take advantage of the complimentary Men Self Spa with its hamam, Steam room, jacuzzi and Dry Sauna. It is a place where relationships can organically unfold thus creating a sense of community within the hotel. The Coffee Shop, Lounge and Library serve as incubators for productive minds, as well as casual communal experiences. The hotel promotes "gaythering" and socializing with activities and curated programming. The hotel does not charge for any of the activities like Yoga, meditation, language classes or group discussions but donations to the facilitators or instructors are appreciated to cover their own expenses. There is not much "cookie cutter" going on here: All the rooms are unusually large by South Beach standard (300 to 437 square feet) and have King size beds, 40 HDTV's, Showers with red "welders curtains", original artwork, science lab desk with metal chair, 300 thread count 100% cotton linens, and even a sleep sound machine. ... more   less
