We went to South Beach with another couple to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and we stayed at the Betsy. We have been to South Beach many times and have always stayed at one of the larger hotels. Boy, i wish we could have a do over on all those previoius trips becuase staying at the Betsy was the best trip we've had. The staff is unbeliveably attentive, the rooms are gorgeous and despite the fact that it is on Ocean Drive, it was very quiet at night for sleeping. I highly reccommend the Betsy!
