I love this hotel for the simple fact that it's such a departure from the others. South Beach is a great place to "see and be seen," and I find that many of the hotels and restaurants in the area pander too much to this notion. There's often an air of forced formality and trendy snobbery at many of the established properties located north of the Lincoln Road. Not at the BETSY.
The BETSY is a historic building at the northern end of Ocean Drive that has been elegantly restored. I'd characterize the mood as beautiful and stylish while making sure you feel welcomed and a special. The lobby is a study in effective integration of restaurant (BLT Steak), hotel, and bar (B Bar). The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly, professional and prompt. My room, located on the second floor and overlooking the pool, was so comfortably and beautifully furnished that it was had to leave. My favorite detail - a flat screen TV embedded in the large bathroom mirror, looking like it was floating inside the glass. The beach is a 10 minute walk at a leisurely pace and the hotel's proximity to the Lincoln Road makes it's location very convenient.
I highly recommend at stay at the BETSY.
