“Perfect service.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I can not say enough about this fantastically run, immaculately kept hotel and service that goes above and beyond. From the owner to the front desk to the cleaning staff, everything was perfect.
I will most definitely stay there again and I urge anyone that doesn't want or need to stay in the commotion that South Beach can be, THIS IS THE PLACE!!!!
HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.

The staff were all fantastic, fun to talk to, happy to help and just the greatest hotel staff I've ever met, they made my stay feel like I was at home, but better than being at home. The rooms are super gorgeous and everything was new and pretty. The vending machine was top notch and the emergency boxes in the rooms were definitely a great touch. I love everything about this hotel and I'm going to be telling people about my stay there for the rest of my life. I can't wait to go back.

Very stylish, very friendly staff! Great self-spa. Good value for your money. Spacious room. 5 minute walk to Lincoln. We really enjoyed our two nights stay. Next time we come to Sobe we will definitely stay again at the gaythering. Good for gay and hetero couples

The good stuff:
Decent value for South beach and being the only "gay" hotel on the island.
Everything is new, modern, functioning and super clean.
Larger than norm rooms with wonderful beds/linens/pillows.
All employees we encountered were friendly and reacted professionally.

Areas that fell short:
Odd/small front desk; not very functional or welcoming?
Not crazy about the whole look of the lobby/bar/multi-function room? Too industrial and cold. Not comfrontable, happy, sexy or even friendly.
With the exception of the bartenders; employee uniforms/dress standards look unprofessional even silly.
The spa facility is a great idea but not executed well. Small corner hot tub is too open; place closes too early, needs to be 24/7 and not having access by your room key is plain stupid.
Locaion however not bad; isn't close to the majority of where the gays want to be.

Honestly for around $250.00; next time we'd stay at a full service hotel around Collins and be closer to the beach, bars and restaurants we spend money at...

Miami Beach is my favorite destination for vacation, this time I stayed with my bf at this hotel for a week during the Ultra event, which is a busy time of the year. Everything in the hotel is brand new, shiny and super clean. We got a Petite King room, loved our bedroom and bathroom. The bed is super comfortable, the TV was great with all premium channels included... but you don't go to Miami Beach to watch TV right? So... the location is perfect! It's on Lincoln Rd so you got all the nice cafes, restaurants and attractions, and a short walking distance to the beach and Palace bar. Also, being more on the West side of Miami Beach makes it less crazy and busy than the places closer to Ocean Drive, which can be super noisy at night. In fact, our hotel was surprisingly quiet during sleeping hours.
The spa was a surprise... thought it would be minimal but actually it has several steam rooms, sauna, jacuzzi... all state of the art equipment and super clean.
As the title says, the people working there, from the owners to the cleaning and bar tenders are extremely friendly... We were celebrating my bf's birthday and they offered us to keep his cake (bought at Publix) in their fridge, they have some small parties there at their bar and everyone was very nice and the staff of the hotel mingle with the guests creating a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
It is great value for the money considering how expensive and crappy can be other hotels in South Beach which are older, have poor noise isolation, etc.

From the first step on this amazing property I felt like I had no worries in the world. The staff where fantastic. Attentive and so friendly. The hotel was five star in every aspect. I wanted to ship the bed home. The room was spacious and fun. The GAYTHERING was definitely the best hotel experience ever.

It is a shame, but true: anyone and EVERYONE should avoid this property at all costs. Particularly during Miami Pride or any Gay event! The other reviews are meritorious only insofar as they speak of the potential of this property. The design is spectacular. The spa is a brand-new facility with amazing features. But.... the staff is populated with arrogant little gays who epitomize that special brand of Miami Beach "customer service," i.e., the customer is here to serve them. Not even particularly physically attractive, nevertheless, the owners and staff here think they are something special. Not so. For far less money, you can stay in beautifully renovated rooms at the Clay Hotel on beautiful Espagnola Way, just two blocks from the gay beach at the Palace. If you want to spend this kind of money, you are stupid for not staying at Hotel Victor on Ocean Drive, which has a legitimate spa, with expert masseurs, not just nice new steam rooms at the Gaythering that are "wink? wink?" hoping for some kind of bath house experience. This place is altogether a badly executed version of gays overreaching, and abusing other gays to do it. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!!

Room Tip: You should also know: at $400 a night? No room refrigerators. No microwave. Spartan (to put it g...
