Travelers' Choice
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”.

If you're looking for a welcoming place to stay in south beach the Gaythering is it. I have stayed here multiple times and enjoyed the morning breakfasts, the evening events, whether bingo, karaoke, or bears and hares. Great friendly bar with a local neighborhood vibe. The staff is friendly and attentive and the rooms are great, the sauna downstairs is an added bonus when looking to blow off some steam. I always recommend the Gaythering to visitors of Miami Beach.

Stayed in the crates Feb 2020 and to be honest can not fault the place. As a solo traveller the set up of the crates gives your own privacy and a social element when it comes to meeting others. Usually a few days away solo is enough for me but I was not ready to go home after staying at Hotel Gaythering. My experience of other guests in the crates was also super respectful which surprised me as I wasn’t setting high expectations. Feeling at home straight away was the icing on the cake - cannot fault the entire experience!

Highly Recommended but know what you're letting yourself in for. So the Crates are part of the Gaythering Hotel but is very different from the main hotel.... the owners have been able to offer access to their lovely hotel but at an economical price. When the main hotel rooms cost a few hundred dollars (and look beautiful), the Crates are cheap, basic but adequate. The walls are basically ply boards that dont go to the ceiling, you can hear your neighbours even if they whisper and the restroom/shower is communal..... but the beds are comfortable, the aircon is good and you get full and free access to their small sauna, decent quality breakfast, free beach shuttle, free bike hire, free coffee all day and lovely lovely lovely staff. The location is also decent with some good restaurants nearby. The bar has daily happy hour and the clientele are friendly and fun as well as theme nights. The Crates are not the place to take your one night stand, there is very little privacy but you have free access to the sauna for that. Set your expectations before you go and you'll love it!

This was our fourth stay at this hotel. During our stay it happened to host many guests from the Atlantis Cruise, so regular guests such as ourselves became second class citizens. Shuttle to Haulover Beach scrapped two Sundays in a row (‘Priorities’ we were told when we asked for an explanation). Noise at all hours. (False) fire alarms going off two weekends in a row. You couldn’t sit outside as that’s the smokers’ lounge, you couldn’t sit inside as the breakfast room was at full capacity. Staff seemed either stressed out (understandably) or inconvenienced, apart from the lovely Breakfast Lady whose customer service skillset was still functioning. Lastly, this was the second stay at the Gaythering where we got charged in full right after reservation. An ‘error’ we were told, followed by a refund, so check your card statement once you book you book. If you're into Spring Break, this is for you. If you're looking for Miami Cool, stay elsewhere.

Thank you Alessandro for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am sorry to hear that this stay was not how you expected and we were unable to provide the high standards of customer service we typically do. There are many large scale events that can change the clientele of the hotel, specifically when they are gay themed events like an Atlantis Cruise that is docking in our city. I am sorry if you felt this event weekend had dominate the property. We have actually stopped our Shuttle Service for this exact reason, we were not receiving enough interest in the trips. We unfortunately were only able to make the trip if more than two people had signed up to go, with the lack of interest in these trips we had to think of cost and ended up deciding on stopping this completely. It seems this was the case during your stay, as with many other times it became more of a disappointment for those who wanted to go than an amenity we could offer all the time. I am sorry to hear you were not able to find a set during breakfast. Aside from the main breakfast area (20 people) we also have a library space in our lobby which can accommodate up to 25 people sitting at tables and sofas. With just 25 rooms, this must have been a moment when the full hotel was at breakfast at once! I admit this is a rare occurrence but it is possible and I apologize you had to experience this. I took a look at your last four reservations and I see that in 2019 we made the mistake of taking full payment and within a day refunded the balance of our mistake. Your other two reservations were charged the correct deposits and the third reservation was booked through a third-party website (like expedia) and you paid directly to them upfront. I truly hope this past experience does not stop you from a return visit as we would love the chance to host you again.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you encountered but I would like to clarify a few things so there is no confusion from potential guests. Our central air is controlled by each guest room by using the thermostat in their room, management has put restrictions on them where they cannot go lower than 61 or higher than 78 (turning over to heat). I am sorry if you felt your room was not cool enough but being in Miami Beach it is very difficult to have an AC unit cool a room lower than 68 degrees. We do use bleach to clean our restrooms in the common areas as well as the guest rooms and our sauna facility. The use of bleach is a common practice in any location that cleans professionally. This is true, we had a malfunction with our elevator on 12/26 which caused us to close the elevator down for safety concerns until a part was ordered and delivered. Unfortunately this was poor timing and most elevator part facilities were closed for the holiday. The part that had broken was our door sensor and without the repair the door was opening and closing every 20 seconds. We were however able to have a part shipped in to Miami and the elevator was fixed on 12/30. Our front desk team does make rounds in the morning if guests are unable to answer the in room phone and have not alerted us of a late check out request. We allow for a 30 minute grace period after our 11am check out, but being a small property with just 25 rooms we need to make sure we have all rooms clean and ready by 3pm for check in. I apologize for the inconvenience. Our front desk is staffed 24 hours a day however we do lock the lobby door at 12am on weekdays and 2am on weekends. This is for the safety of our overnight crew who is working the front desk alone. There is a sign at our front door mentioning this and a phone next to it that if picked up calls immediately to the front desk who then comes to open the door. We do not provide any minibar services in room however guests are welcome to any soft drinks from our bar, a hot/cold water dispenser at the front desk and a full service coffee bar at any hour it is requested.
