I did my research for my 2 night stay in Miami before I went on to my proper holiday in NOLA and the Betsy ticked all the boxes.
I was looking for a hotel that would allow me to unwind but be close to the Miami madness if I wanted it; quirky with very attentive staff. The Betsy provided all of this. The room had gorgeous wooden floors; plantation shutters and overlooked the pool. Beautiful bed with very comfortable pillows and plenty of storage room.
One of my favourite features was the book shelf with books that had either been strategically placed or left by previous occupants. Either way - it matched the room perfectly. The bathroom consisted of a a very large walk-in shower and a built in TV in the mirror - a bath would have been nice but the rain shower and layout matched the room.
I ate at the restaurant and it was OK - I know it has won awards or been voted the best somewhere but to me - it was OK. The staff's attentiveness (and cocktails) probably grabbed my attention more!
I would stay there again in a heartbeat - location is great; customer service great and the hotel itself is also great.
I couldn't fault it.
