It feels a bit like falling down the rabbit hole at the Whitelaw Hotel. Approach from the street in the daytime, and it's got the classic trim lines of many of this neighbourhood's deco landmarks. Through the doors, though, everything changes to an over-the-top blaze of bold colours, baroque furniture and heavy beats. Whitewashed Marie Antoinette-style chairs frame a lobby of dripping black chandeliers, teal ceilings and fuchsia graffiti murals. There are patios in the front and the rear that bob to beats often provided by live DJs, and drinks are poured by the lobby bartenders.

Compact rooms are magenta cubes with cartoon-like white leather headboards, a mini-bar-as-nightstand, and a sound system. Bathrooms are tight and clad in granite. The main goal for guests here is not spending all day in the room, but rather trotting downstairs for happy hour, or up to Collins Avenue, which in this part of town stocks many popular clothing and accessories brands in cute deco shopfronts. Only a short walk away, the bass thumps deeper at what is essentially an all-day party along Ocean Drive, which is just across from the beach.
