We stayed for one night at The Betsy on our driving trip around Florida. It was our first time to Miami and Miami Beach and we weren't sure what to expect. We decided to splurge on an expensive hotel (by our standards) as it was our 10th wedding anniversary. The hotel is in a great position just over the road from South Beach. It was not too busy out the front of the hotel, though a few people stop to take photos of the beautiful facade. There is a roof top bar where you get great views of South Beach, as well as another 2 bars inside and a restaurant. Our room was very nice and was stocked with fantastic bathroom products. The staff are exceptional and cannot do enough for you. We were even given a lovely bottle of champagne with strawberries and chocolates as an anniversary present. We ate at the BLT Steak restaurant which was expensive but delicious. A great place to stay in Miami Beach if you are prepared to pay a little more.
