Everything about this hotel was wonderful....the location, the staff, room, hotel, bar, and amenities
The location couldn't have been better...right across from the beach, Starbucks and bike rentals, within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and before the crazy madness of the southern part of Ocean Drive...perfect!
The staff was magnificent! The staff couldn't have been nicer everywhere in the hotel....the doormen were so kind and loved that they were there too greeting us each time we left and returned! This hotel has a great feeling to it not only friendly but also very modern and classy!
The Beatles/Rolling Stones photographs throughout was a nice touch. I agree with the previous reviewer that it is a shame that they don't utilize the rooftop after dark, although staying there during off season we loved that we could go to the rooftop after dark and pretty much have it to ourselves, with soft music, comfortable seating, a wonderful ocean breeze and a lovely view...it may be very different during busy season.
Both the bar and restaurant were great! We found the bar and the entertainment two of the nights very pleasing...great music but not overwhelmingly loud so you could enjoy drinks and conversation at the same time. The bartender was amazing ! We ate dinner one evening at the BLT...outside seating which was wonderful to people watch...the food and service was wonderful...My only complaint is that the mashed potatoes were too soupy for my taste as I like more consistency to them but everything else was wonderful! Loved the popovers!
We had absolutely no problems in getting our two beach chairs with umbrellas any of the days that we were there and that was such a nice benefit...found all to be friendly and very accommodating.
We had a King Suite that didn't have a great view but we weren't there for the view from the windows and it couldn't have been more comfortable!
We can't wait to return and will only stay at the Betsy in South Beach!
King Corner suite was very roomy and sunny...not a great view but we weren't there for the view...
