South Beach is in flux. There is construction, street side hawkers and quite a bit of poor eateries. The Betsy is a wonderful oasis in the middle of all of this change. The Staff get 5 stars! The location to the beach is 5 stars. The property and amenities get 4 stars. Overall it's a unique property, but if you... More

The Betsy is spectacular. It is classy and elegant but also give you the perfect amount of exposure to vibrant Miami and its South Beach scene. The rooms are lovely, the restaurant is really delicious, the rooftop spa is great and the common areas are luxurious and ambient. The service at The Betsy is truly extraordinary.

On our sixth visit to South Beach we made the decision to stay at The Betsy, having visited BLT (the in-hotel steak restaurant) on a couple of occasions (always excellent). Arrival was faultless. We got there an hour or two before the official check-in time but were warmly greeted with a glass of cold Prosecco, and courteous, relaxed and friendly... More

Fantastic place. It's simple, if you are heading to South Beach then stay here. The location is great, the rooms are large and comfortable and the staff is fantastic. You almost feel like your on this very quiet, upscale island in the middle of all the fun. A slice of heaven.

Stayed at The Betsy for two weeks with my wife and two small children. We all love it.

Lobby Bar is one of the best ever and BLT restaurants food was... More

The Betsy is a phenomenal property. Clean, bright and very well laid out. The rooms are wonderful and well appointed. A great, attentive staff, a lobby that evokes a time past, and a great touch with a glass of proseco upon check in. The room had a white noise machine which at first concerned me as it indicated the possibility... More

This hotel is very tastefully designed, dark wood and white rooms. Service is excellent in this hotel and everyone very friendly from room service to valet parking although I would expect fantastic service for such an expensive stay, valet parking was most expensive I've ever paid. Room that we had with two twin beds was very small although very nice... More

Attended an event at this hotel and was double charged for valet. When I explained the situation and described what happened I was told that's impossible. After speaking to several people who were supposedly in charge they all said they just got there and didn't know what happened. Shady valet trying to Pocket extra cash and incompetent management couldn't solve... More

Really great hotel. Nice rooms and quiet considering the location. The staff were always helpful and friendly in every respect. Excellent food during the day from cooked breakfast till great stakes at dinner. Orange juice in the morning is a must. The only negative for us is that no room has a bath, only showers. This hotel can be highly... More

Got to the hotel a little early so the room wasn't ready. They took our luggage, gave us champagne and we went up to the rooftop and relaxed with the most amazing view. Nice breeze, chill music...I didn't want to leave even when the room was ready. The room was a nice size, cool bathroom with a t.v. inside the... More
