“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

really enjoyed our stay at this quaint, charming hotel. This is a true South Beach boutique hotel, not an old dump that needs major work, but still calls itself a "boutique".. The service was exceptional. The room, while not real big (didn't expect that anyway), was very clean and comfortable. The hotel has its own beach service (chairs, towels, etc) which is nice and there is a small pool as well. The restaurant, BLT Steak, was great for both dinner and breakfast.

Highly recommended.

My wife and I needed a hotel in Miami. We were on our ways to the keys and needed a hotel for one night. We tried the Betsy for the frist time and now we're hooked. Everyone at the hotel made our experience truely special. We've found our new hotel in South Beach.

Dear Roy,

Miami is still the crossroads of the world, and in the summer becomes the crossroads of Florida! So many enjoy a night or two here enroute tot he Keys, or a cruise, or beyond. Glad we could get you "hooked for life" on the Betsy!

I travel as often a my bank account allows. I hope to show my daughter as many places as I can, have her experience the country specifically city vibes than our home city. This latest experience was all her idea. Having always wanting see Miami Beach, we chose The Betsy. My correspondence with the staff was prompt professional and all they mentioned was delivered. The hotel itself is located on the strip, close enough to the "scene" and shopping yet far enough to remain quiet. All within walking distance. The ambience of the hotel is warm and inviting. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing. Most notable is the staff, from the moment we arrived until we left we were welcomed and made to feel comfortable. The staff is truly its gem. The experience of this unique beach city was fun and made better with the comfort of The Betsy hotel and the staff that makes it all happen! For that, I thank you all!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights and had a great time. We stayed right off the first floor lobby which I was worried about since the room was around the corner but we never had any issues with noise! It was amazing. And so convenient to walk in off the street or from the beach and head to our room without having to use an elevator! Felt like home! Being steps from the beach was convenient. The Betsy has beach towels/umbrellas/chairs available for you as well. Loved that! I enjoyed the beach so much more being on a cushy plush lounge chair and towel. My husband had to work some when we were there and was able to do it comfortably at the bar in the morning while sipping some joe. This hotel was close to everything but it was at the end of the street away from all of the places yelling about free drinks and trying to sell you dinner at 3pm. If you walk toward Collins you can avoid all of the hawkers on Ocean.

All I can say is WOW, the staff was amazing, from the beach crew, the doormen, to hotel management, They made sure our four day stay was the most incrediable experience. Our first night roof top dinner, the food was great, we are still talking about the BBQ corn side dish they served. Yes it was a little pricey, but worth every penny, can wait to go back and stay again

Thank you for your review, and for being part of the family reunion! Your group was very special to us - even though we are often the choice for reunions of 5 people to 100, yours was especially memorable, and even gave us ideas on things to suggest to future families planning a getaway!

Just want to say that we just had such an amazing and positive hotel experience. Is a small, classy hotel. Great location, walking distance to a lot of things that we were interested in and we did walk almost everywhere. Thanks to the concierge that arranged our tours ( Everglades and the boat tour) we also got picked up from the hotel witch was great. Margot arranged all this at like 10pm for the next day ( what???? ) We were thinking we will waste a whole day planing all this. Thanks to her we had all booked by the next day. The front desk agents were very efficient and friendly also. Great decor, small but cozy, friendly staff, overall great value. Thank you all !!!!!

Myself & my partner spent a lovely week at The Betsy at beginning of June. The hotel has to be located in one of the best locations on Ocean Drive. We booked a pool view room which was a little small but very comfortable. Next time will definitely choose a larger room for a stay of this length. The BLT restaurant was fabulous, steak to die for! Margot in concierge was extremely helpful & made reservations in several restaurants for us before our arrival. The continental breakfast included in the room rate could have been a little more exciting but the overall experience at the Betsy was excellent. We shall be booking again for next year.
