The Betsy - South Beach
Ranked #13 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 June 2014

My wife and i stayed here last June for 10 days and found the Betsy to be charming in every way , the BLT restaurant is outstanding , we found all staff very pleasant and helpful . Also the hotel is an oasis in sometimes noisy South Beach and the cozy quite atmosphere suited us well but If you like a pool scene this hotel will not be for you as the pool area is very small but there is a very nice deck area on top floor where you can relax with a drink . The Betsy has an arrangement with beach franchise opposite where they will set up your lounger which we found to be excellent . I would have given 5 marks but because the room floors are wooden and tend to be very clanky , if you happen to have a person above who constantly walks around the room ( in our case all night long ! ) this can be extremely irritating as you can here every footstep they make , so if possible ask for a room on top floor , if the hotel fitted carpets this may eliminate problem and fortunately we only experienced this problem the last couple of nights of our stay , we intend to go back to South Beach next summer but because of the noise thing caused by wooden flooring we plan to stay elsewhere .

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room to avoid noise from room above ( clanky wooden flooring )

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.

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
