The Betsy is the perfect place to stay for a comfortable vacatioion. Right on the beach. Good sushi meny (hard to find in Fl.) They pretty much charge you for everything here - but its worth it. Will go back. Great atmosphere with a gentle salt water breeze from South beach.

The Betsy came highly recommended and for good reason . . . this place is the EPITOME OF POSH. Our room, though on the smallish side, was bright, clean, and nicely appointed. The gathering area on the first floor was spacious without being cavernous and very comfortable. The staff, though to a person, pleasant, were definitely off their game. No...

Very nice, expensive hotel at THE prime location on Ocean Drive. Easy access to your own/The Betsy beds etc. on the beach + in easy reach of nice restaurants and shops. If you like good nights sleep, book a room in the new building (more expensive, but worth it). We had a good stay (hotel). Different is the service. Except...

Spent the last 4 days at The Betsy on business and the stay was incredible. Service was beyond. From the valet to the front desk to the service I received in my room. The restaurant was delicious. Rooms were great, especially the balcony. The location was perfect. We typically stay on Collins but it was nice to be tucked away...

Perfect location- you step out straight into the vibrant life of South Beach- and a delightful and well appointed building. Staff very good. Very good breakfast service. A few steps from the excellent beach, and yet quiet overnight (OK, quiet with the AC on). Many restaurant options around as well, and shopping just a couple of streets back. Allow plenty...

Dear 14Simon2017, Thank you for your recent stay with us, and for your excellent review! I was happy to read that you enjoyed your visit. I will say that in South Beach, with most valet costing $40-50 per night (ours is $43), may prefer to just Uber or taxi around - especially if you are planning on straying no further...

The Betsy is a charming, relatively small hotel at the end of Ocean Drive (two minutes from the beach). Excellent restaurant and bar. Friendly, attentive staff. Very knowledgeable concierge (who pointed us to superb restaurants). Good beach service. Our room (ocean view king) was very well-appointed and comfortable, but somewhat cramped. The AC was like a strong wind blowing on...

Dear Roger F., Thank you for your recent visit with us, and for sharing your opinion about your visit! When looking for the quietest accommodations, we always recommend those rooms & suites facing our interior courtyard pool. Very serene, especially since most Guests avail themselves of our 2nd, rooftop pool. Our central AC is fully controllable, perhaps there was a...

Upscale for the Ivy League set. Uncommonly tasteful, sophisticated decor, luxurious rooms, ample bathrooms, phenomenal restaurant, extremely attentive and responsive staff, live jazz singers, gorgeous rooftop pool. There are first-rate books in nooks and crannies, abundant first-rate artwork, live jazz, poetry readings. If you love The New Yorker magazine, cabaret, and pampering, the Betsy is your dream hotel.

We didn't stay here - we actually tried to get into The Front Porch for breakfast and the wait was too long. This was down the street a bit so we tried it. We were seated right away at the resteraunt in the Betsy and honestly- mixed reviews. They were out of pancakes...?? How does that happen? They are pancakes-...

We loved being across from the beach but would have rather stayed on the beach for the price. It is on the end of the strip and parking was expensive. I'm not quite sure what all the rave for this hotel is about. We didn't have any awww moments. There is a tv in the bathroom- kinda cool! We loved...

This was my wife and my third straight spring break in SoBe. After two years at the Shelbourne we wanted to be closer to Ocean Blvd. and the action, but not too close.
