This is such a lovely hotel, wonderful décor and amenities, fabulous location. The lift system though was very confusing as the hotel is in two parts and not all lifts access all areas. this is a great place for a special occasion.

It is like staying in 2 hotels at the same time. Well, that is what it is and because of that, guests enjoy 2 rooftops, 2 swimming pools, 2 main entrances, great location, great staff, wonderful views and everything else is gravy.

I am NOT joking. The Betsy is my favorite hotel. We travel a lot and stay in many resorts and high end hotels. This was my second stay at The Betsy and it was even better than the first time! I don't remember my room number, but we stayed in the art deco wing. (It is the new part- they...

Fabulous looking hotel which is 2 seperate buildings connected by a funky white orb on the 3rd floor. It's all recently refurbished and rooms in the new Art Deco wing are beautiful and well designed. Big minus for me though is that no rooms in the entire hotel have bath tub, not even the suites! For the cost of the...

Sitting outside on the patio overlooking South Beach's Ocean Drive is beautiful, but the food was delicious and attractive too. It was not an inexpensive meal, but the French Toast was excellent.

This was our second visit to The Betsy our first being in 2011.

The Betsy is the perfect place to stay for a comfortable vacatioion. Right on the beach. Good sushi meny (hard to find in Fl.) They pretty much charge you for everything here - but its worth it. Will go back. Great atmosphere with a gentle salt water breeze from South beach.
