The Betsy was a wonderful experience in every way. The attention to detail, personal attention, immaculate rooms, scrumptious restaurant, proximity to the beach, classical music concerts and overall vibe is simply one of the best experiences I've ever had. I travel over 150,000 miles a year to four continents and this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed... 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

Whilst I did not stay at this hotel, I did visit for a rooftop event for July 4th. The hotel itself looks great and the location is fantastic. The reason for this rating is down to the excessive use of gratuities by bar staff and the attitude of a certain bar man who was serving at the rear roof top... More

It is very beautiful, friendly staff, location, and the food is the best in Miami Beach, his dishes are unique, drawing, originality, etc. It is a little expensive, but worth it without hesitation. I think that it is one of the best options that there are in South Beach.

If you are looking for an exclusive boutique hotel, the Betsy is the right choice! I picked this hotel after I read the reviews on Condé Nast. Although the hotel is being remodeled you barely hear anything and will be done by November 2016. Then the hotel will be even more awesome! Definitely would stay there again! Yassef made our...

I stayed at the Betsy Hotel in South Beach Florida this past weekend (07/21-07/25/2016). I must say, the level of customer service that this hotel provides is outstanding!
