The staff and accommodations at the Betsy Hotel where stellar, esp. Ed Ponder, the Director of Guest Services. Everything was top notch! As an interior designer, I loved the decor - the lobby, the restaurant, even the bathrooms are fabulous. And the food at BLT was magnificent. We loved that the location is on Ocean Drive in the middle of all the action but removed enough for quiet evenings at the bar. The Betsy is our new "home" in South Beach.
