“A Quality Hotel”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Booked this through another website that I use and I have to say that I was most impressed by the Betsy Hotel. The staff are excellent. I was there with my 7 month pregnant wife and they were all over her requirements. The concierge's (x3) were all top notch. If you stay here use them. We ate in the steak restaurant attached - excellent food and waiter. The breakfast was exactly what we wanted and we top it on the veranda watching the Miami Beach world go by. Location, location, location - its basically exactly where you want to be if you are visiting Miami Beach, everything is within walking distance. The room was grand, not drop dead amazing but fine for what we needed. We did ask for a room change to get a bath but there was no reply to that. I'd suggest hanging out in the rooftop bar - food is perfect for what it is (the Cuban is tasty) and its just a cool place to hang out and read. I loved the Stones photo's on the walls and will be getting prints. Its a very cool hotel. You pay for it though, its not cheap but as in life you get what you pay for. We have since had our baby and the Betsy will always be the class hotel we stayed in before little Tahdg was born.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking Miami beach rather than the pool

The Betsy was exactly what we were looking for in South Beach - a charming, luxurious, small hotel located a step from the beach. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and eager to help. The rooms, though not large, are extremely comfortable with all sorts of extra touches. The roof terrace is lovely. My stay exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view and you will not have the Ocean Drive noise

Great location and classy hotel. Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the room, bar and restaurant.

Apart from the doormen, concierge and housekeeping the staff appear to be very unhappy and angry.

Takes the shine right off ... pity, could be a brilliant place!

Not only is this the most beautiful hotel on Ocean Drive, the interior from the staff to the rooms are spectacular. It is tucked away on the north end of Ocean, but with the same beautiful view. Great place if you are on a romantic getaway and do not want the hustle and bustle of South Beach, but still are centrally located for walking. EVERYONE on the staff here is super friendly and you can really tell they enjoy their job. They really strive to make each guest feel welcome and comfortable. Having stayed in a few other Ocean Drive hotels in the past, we are happy to report we have found our new home in South Beach! Do not hesitate -- book now!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, go for a suite!

We stayed at The Betsy for a week at the beginning of June and it was perfect. We had a pool view room which was spacious and cleaned immaculately everyday. All the staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough to help during our stay. Breakfast at BLT, which was included in our room rate, set us up for the day and was served by friendly waiters/waitresses. Location was also great at the quieter end of Ocean Drive but only a 5 min walk to bars/restaurants & 10 mins the other way was the shops, bars & restaurants of Lincoln Road.
I would highly recommend The Betsy to anyone looking for a hotel in Miami.
Thanks for making our 10th Wedding Anniversary trip more than we hoped it would be.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a pool view room, it's worth it

Great place to stay, in the heart of South Beach but a haven of peace and tranquility. Staff all very welcoming and helpful. Food is great in BLT steakhouse and breakfast which was included in our room rate was very good value.- all served by friendly waiters and waitresses. Would definately recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We had a pool view room which was facing the inside of the hotel and was very quiet

Great Place! my wife and i stayed here for 3 nights. we loved it. its mall and unique. everyone goes out of their way to help. the atmosphere is completely opposite of your "typical south beach vibe"....that is why we chose it. its quiet, laid back and peaceful. its in a perfect location, right on Ocean Drive and within walking distance of everything. if you want south beach without having to deal with the noise that is south beach then this is the place for you.

the food at the hotel (BLT steakhouse) is fantastic!

we will for sure return!
