Visited the Betsy with my family, three kids and two adults. Beds were heaven, service outstanding, rooms fresh and clean. Beach service with umbrellas etc. We booked the hotel spontanouesly so I didnt have any expectations, but now we will definitely stay again at this hotel when in Miami beach. It is a bit pricey, but I guess that goes... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2016 via mobile

We chose the Betsy because of rave reviews from family and friends. We stayed at the Betsy for a few nights mid week in the beginning of April (after the busy spring break season). This was the first stay at the Betsy. The Betsy hotel is a nice reprieve from the large (and often loud) resorts on Collins Ave. The... More

We stay for 4 nights and the decision to stay in The Betsy was the best decision we could have made! The staff is superb. Our room was immaculate and outfitted nicely. The concierge(s) are spot on in their recommendations. Use them! The bartenders the go above and beyond to meet your expectations even for a simple drink order; we... More

I have stayed at The Betsy on several times since it has opened. Love their decor, staff is accommodating, and their restaurant and bar areas are great. The rooms are clean and wonderfully decorated. My big complaint with the hotel is the size and efficiency of their bathrooms. They have sinks with a mere couple of inches of space around... More

This is my destination wedding weekend and my dear friends were thoughtful in anticipating the stress I would be under. They set me up for a massage at the best place in Miami they could find-the rooftop spa at The Betsy Hotel. The ocean breeze combined with the soothing touch of Damaris, the combination of heat and cool, and the... More

Dear Nicole B., Thank you for your recent visit and your review of our rooftop spa! Indeed, the Spa at the Betsy is one of Miami Beach's best kept secrets. Many of our clients actually are staying at the larger hotels on Collins Ave with the large, traditional spas, who are looking for something personalized, intimate and fully Miami Beach.... More

I traveled with my husband and two kids (ages 12 and 15) to Miami in June to stay for a few days before driving to Key West. We had a good time overall in Miami, but the hotel was somewhat disappointing. The staff was very nice and tried to be helpful, and the meals and cocktails we had there were... More

If you can't be bothered to read the whole thing...the important bit is this.... The reason why this review is painfully long is because the Betsy is almost up there. The blips annoyed us and were unnecessary. It's a great place. Would we go back? YES! Would we recommend the place? YES! They can fix the blips. Now the forensic... More

Dear Kapitanwalker, (Is your name a nod to Roger Daltry?) Thank you for your visit and your review. I do apologize for the miscommunication at the reception desk. Credit card fraud is quite a big problem these days, and I personally understand how annoying the necessary guidelines can be. I'm happy to read that overall you had a good visit,... More

From the moment I walked in the door, I felt welcomed. I was upgraded to a lovely suite and the attention to detail was on-point. I had a gourmet app and drinks at the hotel restaurant, and then finished the night with a concierge recommended dinner. I was so sad to have to leave after only one night, and can't... More
