“Betsy a Cute Babe!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Charming and cozy boutique hotel on the quiet end of South Beache's otherwise manic Ocean Blvd. Rooms, food, amenities and beautiful beach right across street make this a perfect long weekend getaway!

Room Tip: try to get upgraded to a junior suite or better. Extra room worth it!

It's in the perfect spot if you want to stay in South Beach, near enough to everything, but at the quieter end of Ocean Drive.

Liked the roof top terrace, but they did keep having events up there which meant it wasn't as peaceful as it was normally.

The rooms aren't the biggest, neither are they the most luxurious, but they were perfectly adequate for a few nights.

There was one lift in the hotel and it was pretty slow, so we ended up using the stairs, not an issue for us but something you may want to consider.

The staff where good, did get given some incorrect info about breakfast at check in, but not the end of the world.

The restaurant was very good, but that's a separate review.

The extra charges where a surprise, the $16 a day resort fee for wifi and beds on the beach (which we didn't use) wasn't mentioned on the website we booked through, the $43 a day for parking also seemed a bit pricey.

Overall, a decent hotel, good location, but not quite perfection.

Brought my fiance for a quick trip to Miami for her birthday. Booked the Betsy mainly because of it's strong Tripadvisor ratings. Overall it did not disappoint and I'd stay there again. Rooms were great, my fiance loved our suite. Very spacious suite with large bedroom and separate living room. Room was clean and very well equipped. The library of books in each room is cool. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The only downside to the stay was I booked a particular package deal with the hotel, and the staff didn't seem to know what was included...I had to ask several times to receive the items that were included in the package. Other than that the stay was great.

My wife and I stayed at the Betsy and had great service from courteous and attentive staff throughout. This hotel is old school where service and quality are the priority. The small lift is indicative of the hotels age but the roof terrace is fantastic.
The location is ideal for either a stroll on the beach or a walk around the shops. If you want a refreshing drink drop in at the Playwrite bar on Washington and 13th.

Room Tip: An ocean view suite is ideal but the best views are from the roof terrace that is open to all

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
