“Great location”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Wonderful niche boutique hotel on Miami South Beach. Colonial-style feel to interiors in contra distinction to surrounding Art Deco buildings.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Directly across the street from the famous beach. $16 per day is added to your bill for use of beach sun beds, towels, parasols AND unlimited wifi in hotel.
The hotel has a pool but it's 'locked' inside a deep light well and has the feeling of an indoor pool due to the limited air circulation.
Would definitely recommend to those who would enjoy sitting on their verandah, sipping a cold one, watching people stroll by.

Room Tip: No need for a beach view - unless you plan sitting in your room all day!

Stayed with husband and 2 teenagers in a Suite. We all loved the hotel. It is beautiful and in a superb location. The rooms were perfect and the staff extremely courteous.

Only grumble - we arrived after 5 and our room wasn't ready -annoying after a long drive.
On the plus - the photography around the hotel is fantastic.

Room Tip: We had a suite on the front of the hotel (sea view) which was beautiful and quiet.

The Betsy Hotel was great. Great location, great room, great staff. We loved being so close to the beach as well as within walking distance of restaurants and Lincoln Road shopping. The rooms were clean, and the staff was helpful and courteous. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for three nights with Husband and two children (aged 17 & 12) Room was pretty small for a family of four. Room backed on to the pool, which was very pretty indeed, but a nightmare when people decided to swim at 10.15pm at night (in fairness, hotel staff dealt with this quickly) and at 8am in the morning when it opened. Bathroom was tiny (only shower, sink & loo - no bath) Walls were paper thin (didn't help that we seemed to have a family of small elephants staying in the room above us) Enjoyed our stay, the staff were very polite and helpful, but wouldnt rush back. Overrated and overpriced.

Room Tip: request a room that does not overlook the pool if you want peace and quiet

After staying at multiple Miami Beach hotels in the past, we found our perfect fit at The Betsy. It is everything we have looked for, and have returned for the past four years. It is intimate and charming and meets our every need. Their attention to personalized, quality service puts this boutique resort in a class by itself. Kudos to Jeff, Ed, and the entire staff !!!!!!

Hotel has very good location, close to wonderful beach and restaurants in the area. We found hotel staff very helpful and professional. Major drawback of the hotel is that rooms are very noisy, you can hear all of your neighbors talking, walking etc.. When we arrived we were given one half of a double-room an when our neighbors arrived with little kids we could hear every single word, kids tried to get into our room at 5.00 a.m. as the doors between two rooms were not lockable. We have asked to change the room in the morning and the front desk staff was very helpful and changed the room for us. Generally rooms have very poor sound insulation.
Hotel has very good restaurant and food quality was very good both for breakfast and diner.

Room Tip: Rooms are very noisy with very poor sound insulation you can hear every step and every noise from in...
