This is definitely one of the most expensive Hotels that we have stayed at, and if you check my profile you will see we have stayed in top quality Hotels all over the world but this Hotel was shown as one of the top 3 rated Hotels in Miami Beach and very justified to be in this position. Firstly location...

The Betsy is they do a great job of choosing their staff. Every member of staff seems to understand hospitality - the concept of making people feel welcome. Reception staff, waiters, door men, everyone is professional, caring and genuinely friendly. Even the housekeeping staff greeted us by name which I found impressive. The Betsy is very stylish in a timeless...

Beautiful small hotel located directly accross from the beach. There is also a Starbucks accross the street which was great to pick up a cup of coffee and sit under the umbrella on the beach. The door men, and managers were always helpful and some of the door men actually called you by your last name. The royal suite was...

This hotel feels like an oasis on Ocean Drive in South Beach, once you enter the hotel you forget you are on the busiest street where people party every day. It has a nice cozy feeling of a cottage, the pool is nested in the inner courtyard so you have privacy and you don't have to see people and cars...

My husband and I are currently on our honeymoon and stayed at this amazing hotel from May 1st to May 5th - we loved every second of it.

It was my first time to Miami and I have to say the Betsy really made it a special experience. I was only there for one night, but everyone made me feel at home. The check-in process was flawless and room spectacular and immaculate. The restaurant had excellent service and the food was very good. When I am back in...

This hotel made me feel claustrophobic with its tiny rooms and dark corridors. Door to our room did not shut properly and once was left wide opened by the housekeeping. At the arrival, we were made waiting for half an hour to get to our rooms although we have arrived way past the check in time. Rooms were sprayed with...

Dear Nzlata, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry that the Betsy was not to your liking - I suppose that it is true that you can't please all the people all the time, although I would be remiss not to recommend trying one of our larger suites on a future visit, as the...

I loved the ambiance of this boutique hotel. It felt more inviting then some of the bigger hotels on Ocean Drive.

The Betsy is different than any other hotel on South Beach in look and feel. Its classic yet modern due to the recent refurbishment that maintained the classic feel while adding modern deluxe appointments. The staff and the lobby are warm and welcoming and rooms are cozy, bright and comfortable. You'll feel like a guess at a classic southern mansion...

“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.”
