First of all let me explain that I was born and raised in London so I know the difference between European hotel and American "Vegas Style' hotels. I give it 5 stars for location, service and ambience. The breakfast was well worth the extra $$. A big shout out to Paul our concierge, Chris at the front desk (aka Freddy...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during our East Coast US holiday this year and I couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We arrived here after an internal flight from New Work and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. The rooms were bright, clean and very comfortable and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The...

I can't possibly complement the staff and especially Paul Drecq, our concierge at The Betsy, highly enough. We have returned for our sixth annual vacation stay because we enjoy great service and personal attentiveness to our desires. An example of the personal service that we appreciated was being able to access a wide variety of Miami attractions, both well known...

Our long weekend in South Beach was made all the more special by virtue of our stay at The Betsy. It's location is unsurpassed, as is the service, accommodations, food and other thoughtful perks provided throughout our stay. Our suite was beautiful, every meal there delicious, and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The Betsy is...

This hotel really hits on everything. From the moment you arrive, the staff will enthusiastically take care of your every needs. From the front desk, doormen, to the rooftop patio. The beach is right across the park and there are attendants there to help you with a chair and umbrella. The hotel is rather pricey, but, so is everything in...

Thank god for the Betsy! This hotel is the best thing about this strip of SoBe. The lobby is chic yet comfy, the service attentive but never intrusive, the food and drinks AMAZING. OK so the rooms are a tad small, but it's a historic building, so there's no changing that out. We had an oceanfront King, although because of...

This hotel is a wonderful little boutique hotel located right on Ocean Drive, but far enough away to still be classy and quiet. The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable.

The best position to enjoy- the beach was directly across the road, quiet on an evening, walking distance to everything, and city parking just 2 blocks down. Rooms are small, especially the bathroom, but what an atmosphere- we enjoyed every minute of our stay- would highly recommend

“We stayed in an interior suite, meaning it faced the interior of the hotel. I had thought that meant our balcony would overlook the inside of the hotel, but it actually overlooked a pretty courtyard. Seemed like it was slightly quieter than a street-facing room would be.”
