I never write reviews but my 3 day stay at The Betsy was so over-the-top, I have to give them props. My brother called Paul the Concierge extraordinaire and arranged an utterly amazing rooftop massage (Kimmi is excellent) as a b-day surprise. I never would have told anyone. Fernando checked me in and wished me a happy bday which threw me as I didn't yet know how he knew. Awaiting in my beautiful suite was champagne and a fresh cut fruit plate, both from Paul. Betsy and Luciano also at the front desk, were darling. Margot, another great concierge arranged my spa treatment. Everyone knows you by day one! But back to the hotel. Far superior to places like the Royal Palm and the National. Each room has a little private library of books so I read "For One More Day" by Mitch Album in one day...they had a RockArchives art exhibition on every floor with never seen photos of young Bowie, Dylan, Rod Stewart, Curt Cobain, etc.
Coolest, most intimate hotel EVER in any city. Nice lobby bar and restaurant. Right across from beach and they have your name at the beach too, ready to set up your free chair and umbrella. The Betsy won me over for life! Starbucks also directly across. Exc. location on Ocean Drive and very short walk to Espanola Way & Lincoln Road - two must do's in Sobe!
