Super friendly and great staff. We arrived about 3 hours before check in and they put us in a upgraded room on the spot. If you are are Stones/ Beatles fan you would love this place with dozens of photos of them all around the hotel. Its in a fairly quite spot on Ocean Drive and walking distance to South... More

Oh dear, what a huge disappointment. On first impressions this hotel is beautiful. Travelling with my husband and young daughter we were delighted to be given an upgrade on arrival. However the first issue we had was getting our room. With a 4pm check-in time you really don't want any delay in getting access to your room, however it was... More

I went to Miami several times and discovered this hotel last year, I loved it and came back this year Service is great, all people here are extremely nice (except the male concierge and a lady at reception, it's like you disturb them when you ask for something!). Yasmina and the other waiters are lovely, food of the restaurant is... More

The service here is very good, and the concierge is doing their job well. But the rooms is very small. We had to be very organized to get a ordinary sized piece of luggage in the room. When you are travelling it's not nice to look at the luggage in the corner of the room all the time, because there... More

We visited the Betsy while holidaying in Florida and this was a real highlight while staying in Miami. The location, directly across the road from South beach, is absolutely perfect giving great access to lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable. The roof top terrace is a great place to relax and have... More

Stayed here Easter weekend. South Beach perfect location. Close enough to everything. Fabulous interiors with attention to detail (including fantastic photos on the walls). Laid-back luxury feel... Good service and great breakfast. Did not try the restaurant though... Will definitely come back. If you want to hang around the pool there are probably better choices. Recommend room with sea view... More

I loved this hotel. It's a quaint boutique style hotel with extremely good service. Right across the road from the beach and they have their own lounges and umbrellas on the beach for hotel guests. Great location on South Beach within easy walking distance of shops if you need some retail therapy or restaurants if you are peckish. Staff are... More

Absolutely loved the hotel and staff, particularly Ed the manager. Was really understanding and helpful. Stayed for 2 nights at this great hotel on Ocean Drive, in a fabulous location and really enjoyed the stay and the local area. Only downside was the view of the construction site from room 112 and being woken at 7am both mornings. By 8am... More

The Betsey is a smaller hotel with only around 60 very nice room's. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of there way to make your stay a wonderful experience. The hotel is not directly on the beach and you will not get a view of ocean, but other then that it was perfect.
