I Stayed here last week and was most enjoyable, captures a era long gone but just fantastic. The suite was well kept and attractive. Yoga at 7.30 watching the sunrise on the roof top with a beautiful view over south beach and the ocean. Spa treatments under the blue sky.

The service was excellent and friendly, the manager could not do enough to make my stay a plesent one. Great location,great hotel,great food, great service, what more can i say! loving the art deco of south beach.

Room Tip: corner suites are better than rooms which i a little small

We planned a 4 night stay with friends, and were so happy with our choice. The Betsy is the perfect size hotel, not too large, and charming. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Margot and Paul helped set us up with dinner reservations and a fantastic boat rental.Boat rental with driver was $$$ but worth the price, if possible make reservation with Paul and ask for Spenser as your driver-he was fantastic!
Rooms are small but very clean.You have access to the beach with chairs and towels. BLT is fantastic restaurant located at hotel.Loved the bar area.No need to try a new hotel for our next stay in South Beach, we look forward to going to The Betsy again.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the pool, which I heard was quieter.

I can't rave enough about this hotel. You can't stay at another hotel St.Regis, Ritz, Four Seasons, etc. and get better service. The staff was amazing. The hotel is great too. I will always stay at the Betsy from now on...as long as they have rooms.

We stayed at The Betsy last week and enjoyed our visit very much. The lobby is small, classic South Beach Art Deco with the restaurant BLT Steak open to the lobby. The location is ideal. Walking distance to all of the hot hotels and Linclon Road shopping and dining. The room was small but nice.

The highlight of the hotel is the roofdeck. It provides and beutiful quiet setting to read a book or have drinks at night and watch the show that is Ocean Drive.

The only negative was the pool which was located in the back. Very small and virtually no sunlight or view. Stay at The Betsy for the scene and access to the beach. if you are a pool person go somewhere else.

Paul gave us great advice and was able to get us into one of the hottest restaurants in town. We went to The Betsy to meet some friends that were staying there and have a couple mid-day drinks. After drinks we were at a loss as to where to eat for dinner – we are locals so we had some ideas, but since we hadn’t planned most of the hot spots were full. We asked Paul and not only did he give us some great ideas…with a quick phone call he got us reservations at one of the hottest dinner spots in town! Thanks Paul…you went above and beyond…and we greatly appreciate it.

The Betsy is a lovely boutique hotel. The staff were very pleasant as soon as we arrived. Our room was clean and of a decent size. The reception area, the roof deck and the hotel are all beautiful.
Great location right next to the beach and main strip.

An incredible hotel that offers a relaxing getaway from the busy streets of South Beach. The lobby is beautifully decorated, as are the rooms, which we found to be impeccably clean and spacious. The hotel charges a small resort fee which allows the use of loungers, towels and umbrellas on the beach, however there is also a pool and rooftop lounge/bar within the hotel. The hotel itself is located at the quieter end of Ocean Drive, just across the road from the beach, and is also within easy walking distance of the shopping and dining areas. The Betsy staff are yet another asset to the hotel and we found them to be incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay. A truly wonderful hotel that I would readily recommend to anybody visiting Miami!

Room Tip: We stayed in a pool view room which was spacious and quiet, some of the rooms overlook an alleyway a...
