I stayed for two nights at The Betsy before going on a cruise. I was a little apprehensive about staying on South Beach as I remembered from previous trips that it could be a little too lively for my taste. The Betsy, however, turned out to be a a perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive.
Set at the end of Ocean it turned out to be a perfect place to stay. So tranquil and calm you had to remind yourself that only moments away the SoBe party was in full swing. To be able to dip out of the full on noise of the bars and restaurants and retreat to such a relaxing haven such a short distance away was perfect.
The room was probably not as big as I had hoped for but was tastefully decorated and very clean. BLT is not to be missed, the photography on display throughout the hotel is fabulous and the views from the rooftop garden were spectacular.
Turning to the staff, I really don't recognise the negative comments from other contributors. My experience of them was first rate, particularly the front desk staff who couldn't do enough to help. This was further enhanced when returning from the cruise to pick up something I had left in the room they offered to look after our luggage for the day while we waited for an evening flight.
All in all I would happily recommend the Betsy to anybody wanting to stay in the South Beach area and I will most definitely return.
