I have traveled extensively and stayed at many fine resorts, but there are those few that can just elevate your entire experience to a magical level. This is one of those few places. Service, food, location, the room......and everything else I can think of was absolutely superb!

An initial complaint was swiftly dealt with and we were able to change rooms the first night. Room overlooking side alley with noisy roadworks till late one...

Room was on the service alleyway between the two buildings - garbage pick up 6-7am & renovation work before 8am. Very, very noisy Some great staff mixed with some that just didn't care. Checked in and was told the room was ready - just had to be checked. Sat in reception for 40 minutes before finding out that the lady...

We finished a cruise in Miami for our 30th anniversary and decided to stay a couple of days at the Betsy. What a wonderful choice. The service is impeccable, the room very well appointed and the roof top amenities were terrific. Our room was on the 3rd floor of the Art Deco wing. I can't speak to the other rooms,...

Third stay- previous two, excellent. Third, poor. Pros- concierge, Margot, dinner, mani/pedicures. Cons-front desk not customer-friendly, bordering on rude. Wouldn't say when room would be ready(we'll call you), indifferent, arrogant , took > 10 phone call while I waited. No "excuse me". Elevator not working.

The staff are more than helpful and the tasteful interior decor matches perfectly the buildings Deco heritage without sacrificing the luxuries and conveniences of modernity. The hotel is located on Ocean Drive and you literally cross the...

The best part is Paul the concierge who will never steer you wrong and will take on any task and see it thru. The hotel has gone thru a great transition with the new addition although I prefer older section with easier access. Also the addition didn't change the original bar and lobby which is great hang out for all.
