Our only regret is that our stay was too short (just one night). We would return to The Betsy without hesitation. It is a sophisticated and stylish hotel and one of the best we have enjoyed on our extensive travels. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Wish we could have used every aspect of the services there; we'll just...

Once we found our way through the traffic of South Beach, arriving at the Betsy was like discovering an oasis of rest and comfort. The immediate welcome at our car door combined with the ease of checking in, were much appreciated by two travellers. The room was clean, very comfortable, and quiet. There were many special touches such as a...

Like the review of Hangon of July 15, mine and my husband’s experience was very similar, both the good and the bad. As has been noted in many accounts, The Betsy is a beautiful chic hotel that has a wonderful feel and vibe to it in the public spaces. The pool area is a delight, as is the roof terrace...

Dear TeamGB717 , I was surprised to read your unusual review - in particular, the lack of responsiveness from me was most unusual. I do my best to reach out to so many of our Guests, both on Tripadvisor and directly - it is one of the best parts of my role here at the Betsy! I must apologize if...

I spent just one night at this charming, stylish and great looking hotel. The decor is just perfect, the ambiance buzzing but relaxing at the same time, the restaurant is exceptional but best of all are the staff who are friendly but authentic, helpful but discreet and just good fun to chat to as well. Ocean Drive is nuts (in...

Spent the 4th of July holiday week at the Betsy which is always wonderful. The small hotel does everything well and continues to be an oasis at the quiet end of Ocean Drive in South Beach. I've stayed at a number of other properties both on Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue and nothing yet compares. The staff are always friendly...

I really wanted to like The Betsy. It sounded exactly like what my wife and I were looking for in our trip to South Beach, a quiet and elegant boutique hotel that would provide a refuge from the madness that is Ocean Drive during a holiday weekend. In many ways, The Betsy succeeds--it's a great looking Neo-Georgian facade that looks...

The Betsy is not only a beautiful boutique hotel, its staffed with top notch service masters. Hopefully you'll be there on a day when Thomas, one of the hotel's porters, is working - he does his work above and beyond! Waitstaff on the deck - another great service staff, and the food is perfect.

Dear Sara E., Thank you for your visit - and the expression "service masters"!

“We stayed in an interior suite, meaning it faced the interior of the hotel. I had thought that meant our balcony would overlook the inside of the hotel, but it actually overlooked a pretty courtyard. Seemed like it was slightly quieter than a street-facing room would be.”
