Great hotel, Ros and the staff were very nice and welcoming. They allowed me to check early. The room was not very big but had plenty of towels and soaps,lotions, etc. I am traveling alone, and its my first time in miami. Ros even helped me figure out which train to take.

WORST PLACE EVER. If you care about your money going somewhere good, don't give this place a dime. Carolina Tapia, Angel Solano and the whole management team are horrible, heartless people. I made a reservation a month in advance, not even 24 hours I had to cancel due to a

Dear advdz, While we thank you for voicing out your opinion, we regret the title and content of your feedback, as, firstly, you never stayed with us, nor your reservation was for the Whitelaw Hotel, but for a different Hotel in the Group. On a second note, you made a non refundable reservation, and agreed upon the cancellation policies. We offer different type of booking deals, and, as a very common practice in the Hospitality Industry, best prices sometimes come with more strict cancellation policies. We did respond to your claims when you called and our Staff kindly reminded you of this criteria. We are sorry if the result of applying a rule you agreed upon was not convenient to you, and if this generated in you the impression that we don't have our guest's best interest's as our priority. We speak the truth and run an honorable establishment. Our Staff does care deeply for our guests, and we have House Rules that we reinforce because we, in return, deliver what we promise and more, as shown here in most of the reviews posted by our guests, which led us to be a top rated property. Lastly, you posted this same review in more than one Hotel that belongs to the same group. Respect is given to each and every guest and we would like to be treated in kind. We sincerely wish you change your mind and come to experience true great Hospitality Service. All the best, Silvana C Guest Relations Manager

We stayed at the Whitelaw Hotel for one night before our cruise. As we were late arriving on the 9pm shuttle bus from the airport apparently last to check in there was only one room left. This was room 102. On the first floor. It was just at the top of the steps which went into

Hi jarmara, Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay at our hotel. I was very disappointed to read of your experience during your stay with us. Whilst an apology will regrettably not alter the outcome on this occasion, We do extend it with all sincerity. I certainly empathize regarding the points you mention in your review, as we always go great lengths to make all aspects of our guest's stay perfect. We'd love to have a second chance to make it better. When you are ready, please write to our GM Ros G, at ros.gottuso@southbeachgroup.com, and she will make sure that your stay is not only relaxing, but a memorable one. All the best, Silvana C Guest Relations Manager

Wonderful one-night stay at the whitelaw. Check-in was quick and friendly! One block away from Ocean Drive, beach, bars, restaurants. Excellent location. Complimentary happy hour was a nice perk! The drinks were good, bartender was friendly and it was fun to meet other

Yes, I used their shuttle service. I used it to go to the airport. It arrived on time and stopped at other hotels on the way to pick up other passengers. You have to go across the street to their sister hotel The Chesterfield to wait for and get on the shuttle.
