Located at one end of South Beach in the middle of the Art-Deco area stands the Betsy which is more colonial in appearance than art-deco.
We like a little bit of comfort in the hotels we stay in and the Betsy certainly supplied it. When you enter the hotel, the restaurant is to your left and a bar which looks more like a colonial living-room to your right. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and I had one of the best steaks I have had in many years. The downstairs lounge/bar was very laid back but sophisticated at the same time and the barman mixed a mean Bloody Mary & Cosmopolitan. The rooftop bar was nice, but it had just finished a brief downpour so it was a little damp. The views from the bar over South Beach were excellent. On South Beach itself the Betsy has an allocated area with sun loungers and the staff are very helpful.
The only slight disappointment for me was the room. As ours was a late booking the only available room was the cheapest available and we would have preferred a room not located on the ground floor with two double-beds in it. That said we had a great time at the Betsy and recommend it.
