Upon arrival, I was immediately impressed by the distinctive style that sets The Betsy apart from the rest of Ocean Drive. The dominant Art Deco architecture on the street is certainly interesting but this hotel stands in sophisticated contrast to the hustle and bustle of the rest of the area. It seems to embody a deeper sense of history and has the genuine feel of a timeless classic.
The interior is as impressive as the exterior. The color palette is light and airy. Every detail has been attended to and the appointments are quite obviously considered, right down to the Malin+Goetz toiletries. There is a private pool on the premises and they also have lounge chairs and umbrellas available for guests wanting to relax on the beach directly across the street.
The service is excellent and consistent. We stayed for two nights and by the time we left we were on a first name basis with the majority of the staff.
I would highly recommend The Betsy Hotel and hope that it sets a new standard for style on Ocean Drive.
