“Classy and beautiful in the middle of the action!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

This is such a fun vacation hotel right across from the best beach on earth! We felt like we were in the middle of the action of South Beach but in a safe and upscale hotel with reasonable prices and a warm ambiance!
Our room was white with a little wicker with views of lush palm trees and blue water. Very comfortable, luxurious bedding, shelves with great summer reads, sculptures and large screen TV's. Great mix of luxury and Bohemian!
We ate outside in the sidewalk restaurant (BLT) so we could people watch and had the best thick-cut, fresh swordfish with a spicy flavor with jalapeno mashed potatoes and an avocado salad with apricots--yum!They served delicious popovers.
This is a fun place to stay for a week since there is so much to do day and night, and yet it is peaceful and quiet. This hotel was a great find for us and we plan on going once a year if we can. You feel safe there, very pampered, and the hotel staff was caring. The beach area it is in is beautiful.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet even though it faced the main road and the ocean.

We recently spent a night at the Betsy, returning from a trip to the Caribbean, before traveling onward the next day. What a wonderful place. It's an elegant and very comfortable hotel, with a Southern vibe to it. The staff are excellent and accommodating. Our ocean-front room, though on the small side, was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Breakfast on the front porch was a delight. The beach across the street, and the umbrellas and chairs available to guests, were lovely. For me, and I recognize others may well feel differently, the only drawback is the relative proximity to South Beach and the loud and unpleasant ambiance that this area has become on weekends and on frequent weekday evenings.

We had a fantastic time during my daughter's wedding at The Betsy Hotel. Our guest flew in from around the world to enjoy the nuptials celebration out on the deck,and inside in the lounge for the reception!

Room Tip: My daughter had The Presedntail Suite,and it was simply beautiful!

Very friendly staff and modern sleek clean rooms. The valet, bellman, and front desk all were very polite and helpful. Our favorite part was the roof top deck very relaxing. We had reservations at BLT restaurant and would highly recommend the steaks...I had the 22oz bone-in rib eye and my wife and the 10oz skirt steak.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Betsy. Great location, just a short walk to the beach and just away from busy Collins Ave. We had a small room but it was nicely decorated with super comfy beds. Nice lobby with colonial feel; a welcome contrast to some of the ultra modern hotels in Miami.

Room Tip: Try to get a front or pool facing view

A perfect spot at the quieter end of ocean drive, this is an 'old school' cozy boutique hotel.
No loud music or loud kids! But a lovely atmosphere, the BLT restaurant is excellent, and all the hotel staff are friendly and efficient. We stayed on our way down to the keys, and had a minor problem with our room, but on our return visit on the way back, the front office manager Adnan Jafarov addressed this problem with grace and charm, we were impressed that he had bothered to contact us after we left, not many places left like this! We could not recommended this hotel highly enough, this was our third visit and we will defiantly stay again.
We are late in writing this review as we stayed in March. The lee- Kemps uk

Room Tip: We had an ocean front room, so a great view, would recommend a suite if it's possible

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!
