We stayed at the Betsy from 23rd to 27th July 2009 with two teenagers. We stayed in a lovely Master Suite with two queen beds and a separate lounge area.
The thing that sets this hotel apart from others we have stayed in was the high level of personal service and the great location. All the staff from reception to bar staff, housekeeping and door men were excellent and very welcoming. The hotel is in the heart of the Art Deco district (but away from the tacky, noisy end of South Beach) with a fab diner (Jerry's Famous Deli) round the corner for breakfast and Lincoln Road restaurants and Collins Avenue shopping 5 minutes away.
The lovely white, sandy South Beach is also 2 minutes across Ocean Drive with beach chairs and an umbrella included in the cost of your stay.
We had a lovely, relaxed, low key time. My husband and I had a fabulous meal at the BLT restaurant in the hotel on the Saturday evening . The set $60 3 course meal was superb value with pre- starters, and 'amuse bouche' included. Delicious.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody and am glad I looked at the Trip Advisor reviews to choose where to stay in Miami.
I am sure it will be even better when the Roof Top Bar and Spa open in August.
