Why this hotel?: Popular gay hotel. Men-only sauna & bar onsite.

This one is a real “gathering”. Gaythering is the only gay hotel in Miami that has its own bar and a men-only sauna. You can sleep, drink and cruise in the same venue. Amazing, right?

Guest rooms are well-kept and comfortable. Choose from a Petit, Double or Large Room and even stay in the men-only private unit (wink) with 7-foot partition walls. Sound machines and earplugs are provided and probably quite necessary.

Billed as the anti-hostel hostel experience, and it sounds kinda fun. Pet-friendly (and no, we don’t mean pup-play).

If you’re looking to experience the hustle and bustle of the Miami Downtown, we’ve got some great choices for you.

Here you’ll be surrounded by culture and such as art galleries (we love the Wynwood Walls graffiti gallery) and museums for the LGBT logicians, and legendary nightlife hotspots.

Why this hotel?: Highly rated hotel in Miami. Good location.

Highly rated hotel in Downtown Miami, just off of Miami Beach. The rooms are stylish, spacious and come with marble bathrooms.

There’s a pool, fitness centre, sauna, a fine dining restaurant and 24-hour room service. You’ll enjoy a great view of the port and have convenient access to a Starbucks located in the hotel.

The free Metromover light rail will take you downtown, and if you want to party you’re five miles away from the gay nightlife in South Beach.
