The Betsy exudes class from the minute you see its exterior. It sits between the louder establishments and the high rise hotels and residences. Quiet yet close enough to everything to have the night of your choosing. We had originally booked a Master King Suite which we discovered was a beautiful room with a view of an alley. Wanting a view of the ocean we switched to a much smaller room on the 3rd floor but with beautiful palm tree and beach views. If a view of the ocean is important, ask for 3rd floor facing Ocean Drive, it was worth the reduced space. The beach is a minute walk across Ocean Dr and the boardwalk. The hotel has an agreement with a vendor on the beach for chairs, umbrellas and towels. Very professional and friendly outfit. A quick shout out to Robert at the hotel who consistently pointed out the best places to shop, eat, etc. He made our trip great. The rooftop has comfortable couches, a bar and terrific vuews of the ocean Service is very quick and friendly thoughout the hotel. If you want to experience South Beach but get a good night sleep, value service and a beautiful hotel..look no further.
