First time every staying at the Betsy but it definitely won't be the last. From the moment we arrived the service was outstanding. We had an Ocean front suite and it was the perfect size and very clean. If you want to stay in a first class hotel on South Beach then this is the place for you.

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 the house style of giant cheese poppers (like giant Yorkshire puddings!).

Oysters starter platter was excellent. With the mains - 2 notable dishes were the New York Strip and the Lobster. Both total 10 out of 10!

Service throughout the meal was excellent and the bill less than we imagined. Overall highly recommended for a smart casual evening meal.

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 and the pool is so enclosed in an internal patio that the heat is almost unbearable except in the early morning or late afternoon. The beach is always an option just across the street but umbrellas, sunbeds and towels are contracted out to a third party that runs it and we found out that on June 10th at 4 pm they decided to close shop.
We had a suite consisting probably of two of the original layout rooms, which produced a bedroom so small that the space between the end of the bed and the TV on the wall was narrower than my shoulder. The living area was small and with a very uncomfortable sofa. The weirdest thing was the bathroom which had all the facilities for disabled people.
The air conditioning system instead of being smooth quiet and central is individually provided by under window mounted equipment very noisy and blowing directly on to your bed and pillows.
Although many of us trade location on Ocean Dr for optimum lodging, this hotel is a choice but only because there are no much better on the short strip of Ocean Dr. The Tides, and the Victor have some shortcomings to. Be aware of this before you decide where to stay on South Beach.

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 & react! Things like this shouldn't be happening at a high end hotel. Other than that, the rest is good.
Enjoy your stay in Miami Beach! Going back to a cold weather :'(

Room Tip: Room are beautiful but small
