Stayed last year with a group of 6 and returned for the same dates this year with a group of 8. Great hotel. If you are looking for a personal, boutique experience this is it. From the bellmen at the door, bar staff, front desk, wait staff and housekeeping they are great. The beds are perfect with high thread count sheets. Pillows are perfect and fluffy. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Overall a wonderful hotel.

Everything about The Betsy was pure class--the beautiful lobby with live music, the friendly and attentive staff, the beautifully appointed rooms, and its location right on Ocean Blvd., but somewhat out of its relentless foot traffic. The rooftop bar has a wonderful view and is the perfect place to take in the warm breeze of a summer evening before gearing up to go out. The wonderful BLT restaurant is conveniently located in the lobby. The beach is directly across the street and has good service--but no bar. Everything about The Betsy was first class all the way. The ultimate testimony--I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We only spent one night there, but the location was excellent as was the service. Roof top bar was great, food was good. All was very expensive and over-priced as expected. Pool was rather small and we could not get seats, but beach service was surprisingly good and included in the extra resort fee.

Really modern, clean, welcoming, quiete despite being on ocean drive, half a minute away from the beach, food is fresh & delicious, home cinema, bar + outside terrace, they hold your luggage after check out, beautiful pool and long chairs to take a little nap... A no-brainer once again, no way anyone will be disappointed here. I travel a lot for business, trust me.

We spent our wedding anniversary at the Betsy at the end of June. It was everything we hoped it would be. The service was outstanding, from Margot the concierge who contacted us ahead of time to see whether there was anything she could help us with, to the doorman Sean who seemed always to sense when you needed his help and was right there in an instant. All the other staff were equally solicitous but there are too many to mention. Our room overlooked the pool and was elegantly furnished and very comfortable. The beds and bedding were so soft that you sunk right into them! We hardly left the hotel during our stay and ate two lunches and dinner - all of which were excellent. The popovers were so delicious that I am determined to try to make them at home. We were a couple enjoying time together but there were also families who seemed to be having a great time as well. I would most definitely recommend this hotel.
