This hotel has a wonderful location and excellent services. But for the price, and even by South Miami beach standards! it offers below average value, The rooms are extremely well appointed but they are small and the soundproofing ( both between rooms and onto the corridor) leaves a lot to be desired. The rooftop bar and garden is a very nice feature of the hotel but the service there, other than in the Evening peak period is pretty bad. . The beach facilities are a nice feature of the hotel but you pay an additional charge whether you use them or. It, which is pretty irritating on a day when the weather is bad!

Room Tip: Avoid front of Hotel as very noisy. Room overlooking small courtyard pool will be the quietest.

If you need to be close to the beach, but do not want to stay in the midst of the tourist trap restaurants, if you like luxury, but not the obvious stuff, if you like good food and deserve to be treated nicely - try the Betsys. Get Ocean Views rroms, while you are in Miami Beach, try drinks at the bar and you will most prbably get all happy there. Just dont ask the concierge about art (one of the featrures), or how much a Rolling Stones photo costs, he might not have a clue...

Room Tip: Ocean view

The Betsy is truly unique in the world among hotels I have experienced. The atmosphere is soul comforting, there is a feeling of being regarded and attended to without it being pretentious or forced It is natural, yet completely professional. The rooms are clean, sumptuous, easy and comfortable The staff, from first contact with valet, to bellmen, to front desk personnel and all the way through the experience is professional and personable. The restaurant (BLT Steak) is amazing, world class Here again, the servers and all personnel are professional and personable. On top of all this The Betsy is a virtual oasis of arts, culture and good will, with live music, poetry, creative salons, cultural symposiums and more. A stay at The Betsy is comfortable, value laden and even more.

Very good hotel, well located, staff very kind and interior design cool. There are two things that I can complain, the bed was extremely soft and shower was low water.
More one thing...I had a dinner one night and the restaurant was very good but is too noisy, we couldn't listnen each other...

Room Tip: If you like to wake up and see the ocean inspite of some noise, you can stay in the ocean view room, is really superb! But if you need total quiet to sleep, maybe you coudn't stay in that room.

This is a wonderful historic hotel. We were first greeted by courteous door men opening both doors making us feel like we were entering an old Hollywood movie. The lobby was inviting and had a comfortable ambiance. We were directed to the front desk and quickly checked in and went up to our room. The room was intimate and simply decorated. Drinks on the roof top looking out on to the beach was a wonderful way to unwind from our trip. This hotel is located within walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants, no need to go far to find something to do. Not knowing where to go for a special dinner, our last evening, we contacted the concierge, Paul, and his recommendation was exactly what we were looking for. If you’re looking for classy old world elegance then this is the place for you. We really enjoyed The Betsy and look forward to our next visit to Miami
