My fiancé and I stayed at The Betsy Hotel for the first time from May 23rd- May 27th, 2012.
Upon booking our trip I was immediately in communication with their Concierge (Ed Ponder) to set up my perfect engagement evening. He was tremendous in helping me decide on the finite details of the special evening. His attention to detail was evident right away and helped to confirm that I had made the right decision in choosing the Betsy for the special night.
The first night...the proposal.
Our evening started with a picturesque outdoor dinner on the Terrace at the BLT Restaurant located on site. We enjoyed a (to die for) BLT Popover, Tuna Tartare, two amazing stakes! The food and service was second to none.
After dinner, I strategically suggested to my fiancé that we should to head up to the Roof Top deck for an after dinner drink (wink wink). Upon arriving on the roof top we were in awe of the stunning view. After taking in the view for few a minutes we walked toward the upper deck lounge area where a chilled bottle of White Wine and Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse cake were placed just as Ed had promised. As we ate desert and enjoyed the perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean by ourselves I got the chills. It was perfect. After desert I walked her back towards the railing of the Deck (Picture Attached) and proceeded to ask her to marry me. After a long (felt like forever) tearful embrace she said YES! This was truly the perfect moment that I had always imagined. Afterwards we enjoyed the rest of our wine and headed back to our room to freshen up. Upon arriving back to the room a complementary bottle of champagne, chocolate, fruit and a congratulatory hand written note awaited. Simply amazing. The perfect night in every way…
The following days/nights of our stay were on par with this experience. We enjoyed all the amenities that the Betsy had to offer from the up to date Fitness Center, delightful Pool, Lobby Bar, Live Evening Music and of course the Roof Top Deck. :)
We stayed in a pool view Superior Suite that was well worth the extra money. It had a nice lounge area with a flat screen, full size couch, comfy chair and a small desk. In a separate area were the cozy king size bed and roomy marble bath room. One perk we really enjoyed was the Kurig coffee/tea maker. Great for a speedy “pick me up”! The housecleaning staff kept our room immaculate throughout our stay.
From the moment I booked at the Betsy I knew that this was the right place for my proposal/stay. The attention to detail by the whole staff from the moment we arrived was second to none. Everyone makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world. My fiancé and I can not thank them enough for all they did and look forward to another stay in the near future. It was truly the perfect vacation...
Stay at The Betsy Hotel, you will not be dissapointed!
