Hôtel Gaythering is Miami Beach's only Gay Hotel. It is located in South Beach where prestigious Lincoln Rd meets the Bay. Behind its original facade, nothing has been spared to provide a unique experience. Our 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. We want to help visitors to become instant locals. Our staff has a wealth of knowledge and passion about its community. We love to share this with our guests. Our lobby is the heart of our Hôtel, a communal space where guests and locals can “Gayther”. It is a place where relationships can organically unfold thus creating a sense of community within the Hôtel. The Bar and Library serve as incubators for productive minds, as well as casual communal experiences. We promote “Gaythering” and socializing with activities and curated programming. Guests and local members might also want to take full advantage of the complimentary use of our “Men Only Self-Spa” feat Hamam/Mud Lounge, Jacuzzi, Steam Room and Sauna. The perfect place to relax and recharge. We welcome anyone with an explorer’s spirit committed to take an active part in bettering their life without taking anything too seriously. "We might not have it all together, but together we have it all”.

Super stylish and very spacious room at half the price, the room above the bar is a great deal! It was not at all noisy during my stay. I love the atmosphere, the privacy, and when you're in the mood, you can just join the fun at the bar. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful I have ever met in Miami. Will definitely stay again here next time I'm in town!

I was there for 3 nights during pride weekend. nice place, nice stuff, clean rooms and public areas and busy (good!!) spa. The only minuses: no pool, far from the beach and the price for the parking is higher for booking.com reservations.

We chose this spot because our last minute travel, during the crowded Spring Break season, meant it was one of the few available. Some of the online info left my daughter concerned, but a call to the front desk put us at ease, and our 2 night stay surpassed our expectations. Terrific, helpful, friendly informed staff made all the difference- we visited the farmers\flea market, biked to the beach, saw Wynwood Walls, (and the free Botanic Gardens) ate at their excellent recommendations and had a fabulous visit. Our room was big, comfy, fully stocked with all we could want- and the decor was a hoot! Much love to this place for making our first Miami stay memorable. (bikes and breakfast included)

I booked a last minute weekend trip to South Beach. I was apprehensive since it was the height of Spring Break. And I was flying solo. What a breath of fresh air this Hotel was! Located on the quiet side of the island, I could bike or Uber to the beach in minutes, and there was everything on site to keep me relaxed and entertained. Walk to restaurants and shops, while an afternoon away at a French cafe on Calle Espanol. The staff is friendly yet discreet, the rooms are beyond fabulous (a friend who was staying in a nearby AirBnB gaped when he saw my room), and the crowd at the bar is friendly. I will definitely come back to the Gaythering and recommend it my friends. Just not the Spring Breakers!

This was my second stay at the property and the quality of the service has not changed. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. What makes Gaythering a great place to stay is 1) it’s pet friendly (no additional fee) and 2) the location. It is walking distance to many of the restaurants and shops in South Beach. Gaythering is my go to place to stay when I’m South Beach!

We stayed one night in a "Fun King" in mid-January 2022. Upon arriving a bit early, we were able to leave bags with the hotel before heading out to enjoy South Beach. Check-in was easy later in the day, and the room itself was spacious and comfortable, outfitted with both standard amenities and assorted fun time accoutrement. (Only recommendation would be to add an iron/ironing board in room!) It was a tad loud overnight, but the energy and fun vibes of the stay outrank leisurely sleep at this particular specialty hotel. With respect to the property overall, the place is clean, well kept and welcoming! We found bar service to be quick. The sauna provided great, entertaining recreation. The Sunday Fun Day activities were fun to watch. Breakfast service was a nice bonus. The staff are accommodating professionals who work to create a positive experience for property guests. Part of what we most love about Hotel Gaythering, and what most motivates our assured return, is the spirit of camaraderie and openness that greets all guests.

Back at the Gaythering, third time. It is so much fun! Have a look at the website and you will know what to expect. We stayed in the funking this time and yes, it was fun! For the price, the size of the rooms, the facilities, the fun atmosphere and location, you are not going to get a better deal in SOBE! 10's across the board! Only critique is some of the staff need to learn how to use the IT system, we checked in online, signed wavers put in card details. But the guy checking us in made us do it all again, as he obviously had no experience with the system!

They charged us a lot more than they were supposed to at the bar and said that it was a mistake and they couldn’t do anything about it! Don’t recommend it at all! They made my last day in Miami a nightmare

Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share a review. This does seem very strange and I think there was some miscommunication, if there was a mistake we quickly make the correction. When you have time please reach out to us directly so we can review the situation and see where things went wrong. bar@gaythering.com

The neighborhood where The Gaythering is located is a nice residential neighborhood. It sure beats the vibe of South Beach Collins Avenue for its calm lifestyle without South Beach's packed sidewalks and the gross smell of pot everywhere. The staff is absolutely helpful with a great attitude, but remember it is a leisure hotel, so the various amenities of a business hotel are not part of the experience (24-hour room service other than DoorDash, Laundry service onsite, valet parking). Even so, Monte, Rome, and Enrique were so helpful and kind - I am sure the others are also but did not meet them. The great things were the comfortable bed, laptop-sized safe, super-clean room, good internet, nice shower and body soaps, and lots of nice men around. The relaxing sauna/steam/jacuzzi were perfect before sleep and very clean also. For an GBTQ+ traveler, this place is an excellent choice all around. I am so looking forward to returning.
