The Betsy is at the top end of Ocean Drive, so a bit quieter than a lot of the party-oriented places lower down, and a bit calmer and more sophisticated. Service was excellent, and everyone very friendly. The staff is really nice and helpful. Our room was also very nice and comfortable, and though not huge, was generous enough. We had a one bed suite with inner pool view. The pool was very small and too cold, but the beach is right across the street, with lounge chairs complimentary for hotel guests. The roof terrace is also beautiful and a nice place to have a drink or just relax in the sun. We ate one night in the steak restaurant, which was OK, but a bit overpriced and not as good food as other steak places we have been to in Miami. We had brunch on Sunday which was nice as well. Otherwise, there is a Starbucks right across the street which is handy for a lighter breakfast. Staying here, everything is pretty much walking distance so we did not bother to rent a car. Notice some of the bigger hotels have their own beach area behind the hotel (Ritz, Loews) which this hotel is lacking, but otherwise it's a very nice, luxurious hotel.
