After our stay, I have to say I'm a little bummed out.... that I've known about this hotel for years and just now experienced what a truly incredible destination it is! My advice is don't wait; book now and have no regrets. As you can guess, we were just thrilled with our entire experience. After our first amazing dinner at...

The Betsy is a peaceful oasis in the the hyperdrive of South Beach yet only a short stroll away from the nightlife and action when you want it. Service is friendly and always near at hand when needed. The bar is and lounge is a comfortable place to relax with friends or catch some great local jazz. Can't recommend this...

We loved the breakfast and the service! Excellent location, delicious pancakes, waffles and my favorite brioche French toast! The restaurant gets really busy around noon, so come a little earlier on the weekends, like 11.

The Betsy is a hotel and so much more. Their arts and humanities program offers windows into the creative worlds of Miami. They offer a regular series of salons to present the newest in poetry, writing, music, art and theatre. Thursday evenings jazz is presented. Everything is are such a treat. If you're a visitor to Miami, look at their...

Our review of the Betsy Hotel could have been so much worse had it not been for the intervention of Rodrigo the IT Manager and the wonderful roof top bar man. Things got off to a bad start. We simply didn't like our room in the Colonial wing. No problem. Rodrigo switched us over to the newly opened Art Deco...

My daughters and I spent two days at The Betsy in the Royal Suite. When we walked into the room they said "why can't we live here". Needless to say the room was a hit. Our view looked across to the beach and we enjoyed watching the action as people entered The Boardwalk. We spent an afternoon at the beach...

If you are looking to land in a destination where your personal enjoyment, comfort and satisfaction are the top priority of each staff member you interact with..then run, do not walk to The Betsy.

Our stay was beyond amazing. We had a Classic Double, perfect for us girls. Very clean and very well appointed. The rooftop pool had just opened and we were able to enjoy it very much. I must say what impressed me the most was the service. Every single person at The Betsy goes above and beyond to make your stay...
