The Betsy was my treat to myself for my one night in South Beach, Miami and it did not let me down. Lovely staff and service, beautifully appointed room, wonderful lobby and excellent bar. I would have loved to have stayed their longer to better experience all there is to offer, I didn't have time to enjoy the rooftop deck....

The hotel is a wonderful building with a very accommodating, efficient and pleasant staff inside the building. They check is in hours before typical check policy. The location is terrific for walking to the beach, restaurants and other venues. The pool is cozy and serene. The two negatives would be the walls are very thin so you can hear everything...

We visited the Betsy Hotel for 3 nights end of June, and while it's true the hotel location, and global design is great, we wouldn't recommend it to friends. Let's say that to the question "I've seen this Betsy Hotel offer online, what do you think ?", I would probably answer "Depends of the price rate you get, it's good,...

The Inn was very modern and well appointed. The service was first rate from the valet to the front desk they made you feel like a VIP with everything they did for you. The food is good, but very pricey. The beach area is nice. Crowded like all of southbeach, but unique. I did not check other prices, but The...

This is such a fun vacation hotel right across from the best beach on earth! We felt like we were in the middle of the action of South Beach but in a safe and upscale hotel with reasonable prices and a warm ambiance! Our room was white with a little wicker with views of lush palm trees and blue water....

We recently spent a night at the Betsy, returning from a trip to the Caribbean, before traveling onward the next day. What a wonderful place. It's an elegant and very comfortable hotel, with a Southern vibe to it. The staff are excellent and accommodating. Our ocean-front room, though on the small side, was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Breakfast on...

Very friendly staff and modern sleek clean rooms. The valet, bellman, and front desk all were very polite and helpful. Our favorite part was the roof top deck very relaxing. We had reservations at BLT restaurant and would highly recommend the steaks...I had the 22oz bone-in rib eye and my wife and the 10oz skirt steak.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Betsy. Great location, just a short walk to the beach and just away from busy Collins Ave. We had a small room but it was nicely decorated with super comfy beds. Nice lobby with colonial feel; a welcome contrast to some of the ultra modern hotels in Miami.
