At the quieter end of Ocean Drive so its a good location, Arty hotel with plenty of photos of Beatles and Rolling Stones on corridor walls. Rooms are smaller than they look in photos and bathrooms quite limited in space. Jazz in the bar in the evenings creating a cosy atmosphere. There seemed to be a problem with the room... More

I am a travel agent and I have to be honest that I do not typically submit reviews when I stay somewhere... However, my stay at the Betsey was absolutely Impeccable. Every single detail was perfect and I personally have never been treated so well by hotel staff before. The rooms are gorgeous. I only wish I had a balcony... More

I get to travel a lot. Sometimes for work, sometimes on assignment for my photography work and sometimes with my family. I get to stay at many hotels (much more that I would like to), so comparing them comes easy. The Betsy is, in my opinion, one of the best combos out there. If you happen to get a good... More

The Betsy is in a great location if you like to experience a little calm while you are in South Beach. The location is excellent, close enough to walk to the beach, shopping, or all of the restaurants yet it's in a nice quieter area. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the art display of Bob Bonis Beatles and Stones... More

A very pleasant surprise. My husband surprised me with a weekend in South Beach. It had been many years since we made the 90 mile drive South from North Palm Beach County certainly not since the crash of 2009 and our children aged out of sailing. The Betsy is located on the North end of Ocean Drive. It is midway... More

A beautifully refurbished historic property. Perfect location to all things South Beach. Our pool king room was small but adequate for a very short trip, but no drawers, and the shower stall wall was too small to prevent flooding the bathroom floor. There was no street noise or raucous partying sounds late at night, which would have been normal for... More

Excellent location on South Beach. It is close enough to the restaurants and bars, but far enough away that you are not bothered by the noise and crowds. There is a Starbucks right across the street. Chairs and umbrellas are easily available on the beach. Concierge services were excellent, knowledgeable, very helpful with recommendations and reservations.

Well, you can actually order anything from the BLT restaurant at the bar, but I particularly love the bar menu...I order the sushi, there is a lot to chose from and my favorites are the Rainbow Rolls, Spider Rolls, and Crispy Blue Crab. Then on to dessert...an awesome carrot cake with ginger ice cream! The cocktail menu is very original,... More

What a rare find- a hotel with individual style and quality, a breath of fresh air in this world of big chain hotels. Beautifully restored Art Deco hotel on South beach, close to all the action but separate and peaceful. Spent the afternoon relaxing at the rooftop bar, what an oasis. The concierge Ed was a great help, recommending where... More
