We visited the Betsy Hotel for three nights recently, as part of a week long business trip. First let me say what didn't work - The shower, on one occasion ran hot and cold, as if the entire hotel was taking a shower in each room at the same time and the system struggled; the high-def tv wasn't operating properly,...

Dear Martin W., Thank you for your comments - mostly good, and overall recommending is a good thing! A little insight on the water, there are times (rare) when Miami Beach struggles with its water supply. This is new due to the massive amounts in construction going on in the City (not near us, but still affects us) and I...

After a long transatlantic flight this place is the best getting rid of your jetleg. A glass of Prosecco at arrival, a quiet room, a comfortable bed, a friendly staff, a nice patio and swimming pool, a roof terrace where snacks are being served, with superb sight on the ocean. If you want a steak meal, you are on the...

We had the most wonderful time at the betsy. The gracious hospitality and kind staff made such a difference. The service was wonderful and the space was very Art Deco. We enjoyed breakfast each morning at BLT on the terrace. The rooftop deck was perfect for relaxing in the sun.

Dear Kchay 87, Thank you for taking the time to write your review on your recent visit! I'm pleased to see that we met your expectations - that is always the goal.

These were the best burgers we had in Miami. We ate out front on Ocean Drive. Great wine and a lovely bar on the roof to relax afterwards. Beautiful architecture too with some excellent art on display. Good service from friendly staff. A lovely experience all round.

Dear Corianderpink, Thank you for your recent visit to the Betsy, and your wonderful review! I was happy to read you enjoyed yourself and appreciated "old school" vs. the abundance of "hip slick and cool" that abounds in Miami Beach! I hope to see you back soon!

Dear QprGary, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. You mention standard - I'm thinking typical?

The Betsy is truly a gem! My friend and I stayed 3 nights and everything exceeded our expectations. The staff were on point. They instantly made an effort to get to know us and greeted us by name throughout our stay. Our room was bright, fresh and airy - impressive considering it faced into the back alley. Absolutely no complaints...

Really enjoyed our first stay at this hotel. The interior of the hotel was tastefully remodeled (I stayed at The Betsy Ross as a child!)...both the individual rooms and interior spaces had a "Zen-like" quality which was very attractive/relaxing. The outdoor dining for daily breakfast was a real treat and quality of food was exceptionally good (fortunately we had European...

Cheek and jowl next to the vast array of Deco rehabs on Ocean and Collins is an unexpected gem -- The Betsy. Architecture a shade more southern than magic city. If you like a boutique hotel experience -- meaning a hotel without teaming masses converging on every public space, then The Betsy is a must-do. The service was nearly perfect...

we had a nice stay here in a ocean-front room. The Betsy is one of the places different from the hotels with 30 floors and more. Very personal and welcome situation. But you have to pay all that with a much higher price in relation with other hotels.
