We stumbled across the Betsy restaurant on South Beach as we wandered towards the bigger hotels. What a find. We had a table right away on the veranda and were impressed with the staff and great service, and the excellent menu choice. The meal started with a complementary chefs platter of pâté which was excellent. Followed by bread, unusually in...

I enjoyed my stay at the Betsy. It was close enough to the party, but far enough to allow you sleep. The rooms were a good size. The only con would be the small bathroom, but it was beautiful! The front desk staff and concierge were impeccable. The beach is across the street and the beach staff were also wonderful.

As most refurbished buildings of the Art Deco period in South Beach, the internal lay out presents limitations. Small rooms, limited elevators, no parking, etc. In this case THE BETSY has done a major refurbishing of a charming old building trying to positioning itself in the upscale market segment. The general impression and furnishings are pretty. The rooms are small...

Nice hotel, excellent location, very clean with courteous staff, small rooms, pool never gets sun rays which is a downside but the worst is the long wait on valet parking or getting transportation, bell men are not interested in expediting service but getting as many clients as they can... "money talks" if you tip them really good then, they act...

My new wife and I have just returned from a brief stay at the Besty on our last night of Honeymoon. The hotel location is superb if you want to be in the heart of South Beach, with Ocean Drive and Miami beach on the doorstep of the building. The important thing about The Betsy is that it manages to...

This highly skilled staff knows how to take care of people. Nothing is too much. Friendly, helpful, accommodating. If you prefer to stay in a smaller hotel (60 rooms), this is an excellent choice. The decor, the ambiance, and the people makes this place stand apart for me when comparing it with luxury hotels I have stayed in elsewhere.

Visited the Betsy over Memorial Day Weekend 2014 and stayed at The Betsy. The Good: The front desk and bell staff was fantastic. We didn't open a door the entire weekend. The concierge was friendly and informative. The vicinity to the beach was fantastic – directly across the street. Chairs and towels were provided daily. I wish there was cocktail...

Sublime, amazing, fantastic, brilliant, spot on, to die for….I could go on. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived I knew we made the right decision - the doorman opened the cab door, the carpet leading up steps to the door, our bags whisked in and no queue for check in. Being...
