5 Star Review:  We stayed at The Betsy just before returning home after our holiday. It appeared to be the best finale. Great service, easy atmosphere and beautiful roofterrace! Live music in the lobby. Highly recommended.

A perfect place to stay

A perfect place to stay

Five Star Review: With an unbeatable location, exceptional customer service and attention to detail like nowhere else I've stayed, this might be the BEST hotel on the beach. We had dinner at the restaurant and loved it. We also enjoyed a couples massage on the roof. Everything at the Betsy is done with such style and understated luxury- it's a breath of fresh air.

Excellent Choice

Excellent Choice

Five Star ReviewGreat location just across the road from the beach on Ocean Drive. Beautiful interior. Room was small but very comfortable and bright. Needs somewhere to hang wet bathing suits and towels in the bathroom, not much space for unpacking clothes. Pool area a little small and dark. Food excellent. Perfect outside restaurant to people watch without being bustled by the crowds. Service very good although at times it felt a little "tip-driven". Not cheap but highly recommended and preferable to the huge generic touristy hotels that abound the area.

Una perla a South Beach

Una perla a South Beach

Five Star Review:  Io è la mia famiglia siamo approdati al The Betsy dopo un lungo viaggio e cercavamo un'oasi di pace. Questo piccolo albergo in stile coloniale al centro dell'affollata Ocean drive riesce ad esserlo. Tutto è assolutamente studiato con cura e professionalità. Le camere non sono molto spaziose ma eleganti ed accoglienti. Due sono le cose che rendono speciale the Betsy: il team di persone che fanno di tutto per accoglierti e organizzare una vacanza speciale per ogni cliente e il ristorante dove mangiare la miglior carne di Miami. Voglio ringraziare Jose Orellanda (front Desk) per la sua pazienza e capacità di capire il cliente e Margot Harsan (concierge) per la gentilezza e l'efficienza.

Amazing Hotel

Amazing Hotel

Five Star ReviewWe have stayed in a few hotels around the world but this has to be one of the best as it covers everything, lovely rooms, great friendly service and a relaxing special atmosphere. You are at the end of Ocean Drive, just across from the beautiful beach but the Betsy is a tranquil oasis in amongst the partying and lively atmosphere surrounding. Thank you to all the staff for being so helpful and for making our stay memorable, we will be back!

Treated Like Royalty

Treated Like Royalty

My bf and I  stayed at The Betsy the nights of 4/3-4/6. There's no shortage of hotels on Ocean Drive, but The Betsy was in a class of it's own. It oozed elegance and sophistication from the beautiful building to it's lobby, to the quaint room we stayed in. The front desk was warm and welcoming, and they were eager to assist us with making dinner reservations, calling for cabs, etc. Everyone who worked at the hotel greeted you with a smile and a "hello" as you passed by them.  Read more.

Everything was amazing.

Everything was amazing.

Five Star Review: Almost everything about this hotel was amazing. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful, and attentive. The Classic King room was better than the last Ritz Carlton I had been to; the bathroom and shower was a bit cramped and got quite warm inside because of what I assume was poor ventilation but overall I really liked my room. Bathroom shampoo and what-nots are actually pretty nice. There is also a lighted mirror for the lady and a safe to leave your valuables in. Read more.

5 Star ReviewI enjoyed my stay at the Betsy. It was close enough to the party, but far enough to allow you sleep. The rooms were a good size. The only con would be the small bathroom, but it was beautiful! The front desk staff and concierge were impeccable. The beach is across the street and the beach staff were also wonderful.

Blown away by The Betsy

Blown away by The Betsy

Five Star Review: From the moment you arrive at The Betsy, when your luggage is swooped up and taken to your room and a glass of champagne is in your hand while checking in, you realize the exceptional service you will be enjoying. That service did not falter during our long anniversary weekend. Every staff member we interacted with gave us impeccable service while being sweet and gracious, from the wait/bar staff to the concierge.  See full review...

Cozy stay on a busy street

Cozy stay on a busy street

5 Star Review: This hotel feels like an oasis on Ocean Drive in South Beach, once you enter the hotel you forget you are on the busiest street where people party every day. It has a nice cozy feeling of a cottage, the pool is nested in the inner courtyard so you have privacy and you don't have to see people and cars on the street which I think is a plus. 

Ah, they even have a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary coffee and tea, you can beat that :-)

Very Special and Unique Place on South Beach!

Very Special and Unique Place on South Beach!

5 Star Review: I just spent 2 nights at The Betsy Hotel and can't say enough good things about it. The staff was incredibly welcoming, helpful, and knowledgeable! I could feel the focus (at all levels) on a high level of personal service and attention. The room was wonderful with a great bathroom. Since it's a boutique hotel, it felt more like being in a luxurious home. It's in an ideal location (especially if you want to walk around South Beach and not have to drive). The more I learned about the Hotel, the more I liked it! Throughout the year, writers come to the Hotel and offer salons for the guests. Overall, I highly recommend The Betsy!

Perfect Boutique Hotel!

Perfect Boutique Hotel!

5 Star Review:

Good: The personal touch of having less rooms allows the hotel staff to get to know you can make your trip special.

Bad: The Concierge Service. That may not be a focus for them but they need better people staffing that role.

Location Tip: We did the Aquarium with the kids and they loved it. Must try Blocks Pizza! It is a couple block walk from the hotel and has amazing pizza.

Everyone at the hotel was very helpful except one of the concierge. He was lacking some people skills but everyone else was amazing. The rooms were clean and new and for a hotel built originally in the 40's you would never know it.

Simply ahhhhmazing

Simply ahhhhmazing

5 Star Review: We LOVED our time at The Betsy! Staff was attentive from the moment we arrived. Location couldn't be better and the view is stellar. From the roof top lounge to the sidewalk restaurant was perfection. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The room was very large for two, king sized bed, separate living room with chaise/sofa combo and desk. TV's in both spaces and also in the bathroom mirror ( so Vegas) along with a massive walk-in closet complete with safe. We sat down on at the sidewalk terrace for an afternoon sushi snack and a cocktail and didn't leave until 11pm! We were enjoying the vibe so much that we ran right into our dinner reservation. Upon returning to our suite a lovely birthday dessert and a bottle of champagne awaited us for my 40th birthday (which is why we were there), as a designer I am a sucker for details and the Betsy sure gets it! Well done! Can't wait to return. You had me at "hello".

Fabulous

Fabulous

5 Star Review: Stayed here for 1 night this month as we were doing a bit of a drive around florida holiday If I had known how lovely this hotel was I would have booked to stay longer. Our room looked out over to south beach so lovely view and decor of room was fabulous we loved it! Only 2 small gripes were our room was a bit too close to lift opposite so when some guests returned from their night out slightly tipsy it woke us all up at 3 in the morning and secondly drinks on roof terrace were ridiculously expensive 2 cokes and a sprite came to £30!. Reception bar was great served delicious cocktails with friendly chat from bar staff, the biggest plus for this hotel has to be the BLT restaurant the atmosphere, food and excellent service makes for a wonderful evening meal. Overall I would love to stay here again it's got all the things you would want for a short stay in south beach.

Sehr gute Lage, absolut kein Remmidemmi

5 Stay Review: Wir kamen auf Empfehlung zum Betsy, hatten Zimmer 201, hin zum Swimming Pool. Das Zimmer war sehr klein, insbesondere das Bad. Aber sonst nur Bestnoten: perfekte Lage am Ocean Drive, super Dachterrasse, super Restaurant, super Housekeeping, super Strandservice. Und für uns am Wichtigsten: Kaum Lärmbelästigung.

Fun! Fabulous!

Fun! Fabulous!

5 Star Review: I stayed at the Betsy for a couple of nights last week for my friends birthday. When we arrived the check-in was friendly and professional. We loved the look of the lobby and front patio. Upon entering the room there were the champagne and flowers set out as I had requested from Paul (concierge) . The room was clean and elegantly appointed. The view of ocean drive and the beach was great ! We found the location of the hotel wonderful as it is a close 5 minute walk to Lincoln Road, and 2 minutes from the beach . 

Paul their concierge took very good care of us during our stay. Making reservations for us at some great restaurants, reserving a table for us a nightclub , and securing a fancy limo ride back to the airport for my friend . 

I very much recommend this hotel and will definitely be going back!

"A casa lontano da casa"

Come sentirsi a casa, lontano da casa. Ambiente di classe, raffinato, elegante, ma accogliente ed a misura d'uomo in tutto e per tutto. Il miglior connubio tra posizione e servizio. Cura costante dei particolari e delle attenzioni verso il cliente, costanti ma mai invadenti. Situato in un punto strategico, sia per il collegamento con la vicinissima spiaggia di fronte, privata, e dotata di tutto ciò che serve ma tranquilla e discreta, sia per raggiungere le vicinissime Lincoln Road (meravigliosa), Espanola Way e al termine di Ocean Drive...che volendo prosegue verso sud a due passi dal The Betsy consentendo a chi vuole di raggiungere velocemente locali e movida.
Non vedo l'ora che passino in fretta i prossimi 11 mesi per tornare a far visita a questo posto meraviglioso.

"Magnifico!"

El hotel es maravilloso, una habitacion amplia y comoda con una decoracion magnifica, moderna de colores relajantes y bonitos. La ubicacion es exepcional en pleno distrito art deco y en frente de la playa, la playa esta tan solo al cruzar la calle, cerca de muy buenos restaurantes y otros no tanto. Con respecto al restaurante del hotel la comida es rica pero el precio no es razonable, son platos ricos pero nada del otro mundo. Para quienes vayan de visita por primera vez a Miami es un lugar magnifico, la atencion del personal es buena y pueden disfrutar de la vida nocturna en Ocean Drive. No hay mejor ubicacion ni un mejor hotel en la zona!!! Sencillamente maravilloso!!!

“À conseiller , absolument”

“À conseiller , absolument”

Avons séjourne en famille au Betsy 6 nuits et avons été ravis en premier lieu par le look un peu colonial de cet hotel ... Et par dessus tout , avons apprécié la disponibilité et le sourire de l'ensemble du personnel , accueil parfait , service top , , concierge et voiturier ....assez rare aujourd'hui .....
Il est vrai que les chambres sont un peu petites surtout les salles de bain , mais sont tout de même très agréables.  La piscine est petite aussi mais suffisante. L'hôtel est idéalement situé à south beach , en face de la plage, avec , la aussi , service de plage irréprochable. Nous gardons cette adresse pour nos prochains voyage en Floride...

"Roof top bliss!!"

5 Star Review: The Betsy is no doubt one of the best ever hotels in South Beach and it has been made even more wonderful by the opening of the roof top bar! They now have a fulltime bartender, the awesome "mixologist" Jason....just tell him what you have a hankering for, and he'll whip up something delicious for you. Plus, his pleasant, laid back personality is a perfect blend with the lovely atmosphere on the roof. They have a food menu there now too, not as extensive as the one inside, but you can find something you like for sure. It's a terrific experience if you want to escape the hectic scene on Ocean Drive for a bit.

"Spectacular Service"

5 Star Review: This was an absolutely gorgeous hotel across the street from the beach. The food at BLT was superb. The pool was gorgeous and warm. Special thanks to Sean, Monique (Shout out to NYC) and Henriq with the cool British accent for making the visit so special My whole family wanted to stay more nights. Luxurious without being stuffy or pretentious. Also the art on all the walls throughout the place made you feel like you were staying in a museum. Roof deck gorgeous as well.

"Definitely the best small hotel in SoBe"

A very tastily designed hotel which offers you everything without walking miles of corridors. We always feel at home there. Everything is well kept, and the service is impenccable. Remember this is South Beach where unkept properties and no service is the standard. Location wise you are on the upper corner of Ocean Drive which is not noisy and not so crowded, but everything is walking distance to the south and north. Hotel's restaurant operated by BLT Steak always worths a try. The rooms are small but comfortable. On the negative side the kitchen of the restaurant is extremely slow especially for breakfasts and daytime meals.

"Simply wonderful"

5 Star Review: What a fantastic hotel - lovely rooms, excellent service, well placed and stress free.
At the far end of South Beach it's close enough to the madness to join in but just far enough away to escape when you've had enough. An understated elegance to the operation makes everything seem possible and the staff do their utmost to ensure everything is possible. We couldn't have asked for more and it was a great end to our winter holiday.  Due to a technical error we managed to book a room when they were full, however, we were accommodated with no fuss (lucky for us there had been a cancellation) and when the room wasn't quite ready we were offered drinks at the bar. After that it was plain sailing for our two night stay. We will definitely return.

"Stunning"

5 Star Review: An incredible hotel that offers a relaxing getaway from the busy streets of South Beach. The lobby is beautifully decorated, as are the rooms, which we found to be impeccably clean and spacious. The hotel charges a small resort fee which allows the use of loungers, towels and umbrellas on the beach, however there is also a pool and rooftop lounge/bar within the hotel. The hotel itself is located at the quieter end of Ocean Drive, just across the road from the beach, and is also within easy walking distance of the shopping and dining areas. The Betsy staff are yet another asset to the hotel and we found them to be incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay. A truly wonderful hotel that I would readily recommend to anybody visiting Miami!

"Lovely boutique hotel"

4 Star Review - The Betsy is a lovely boutique hotel. The staff were very pleasant as soon as we arrived. Our room was clean and of a decent size. The reception area, the roof deck and the hotel are all beautiful. Great location right next to the beach and main strip.

Four Star Review on Yelp

Four Star Review on Yelp

A boutique hotel in South Beach tucked in a semi-private corner, the Betsy was exactly what we were looking for during a recent stay cation in December. We're locals to South Florida - we live just across the border in Fort Lauderdale, so it is often that we will look for a place to spend a day or 2 while experiencing the nightlife of Miami Beach. 

The biggest things I liked about the hotel were the location, the boutique nature, the fact that sonoma cutrer chardonnay can be ordered by the glass (triple bonus points), and their roof deck area were all bonuses. WE did not dine at BLT Steak but let's face it - I'm fairly certain that would be a bonus, too. 

The service was great! We were treated well though I would have to disagree with the review about the bartender making the experience. IF anything - he was the weakest link of all. Still, no complaints overall with our service. 

We would stay here again without question and would recommend to other locals or people looking for a more intimate hotel (no corporate feel here!), in an excellent location to spend a day or 10 in South Beach

Luxury hotel in Great location

Luxury hotel in Great location

Recently returned from 5 day stay at the Betsy Hotel, South beach. We arrived at the hotel before ten am expecting to leave our cases and return at check in time of 2pm....however due to the very efficient and friendly reception staff our room was found to be available immediately! The suite we booked was spacious and clean with 3 t.vs (bedroom,lounge,bathroom) large walk in shower with ample toiletries,walk in wardrobe with safe,iron,ironing board and hair dryer, and a large lounge area looking onto the small pool. We ate at the restaurant on two occasions...one for breakfast,usual American breakfast, and one evening dinner,..we shared a porter house steak which was delicious. You are served two complimentary starters prior to your evening dinner... Pate and bread and then a huge Yorkshire pudding type thing...both lovely but very filling. Bar and restaurant prices slightly higher than many places on south beach but worth it considering the lovely Hotel and fabulous location. Would recommend this hotel and certainly intend to return!

The very definition of a boutique hotel

The very definition of a boutique hotel

Helpful, friendly staff, nicely appointed rooms, great location and efficient use of space. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go (most importantly right across the street to the beach). The concierge staff was very helpful, as were the front desk staff.

We loved the rooftop deck and also enjoyed sitting around the pool. The BLT restaurant was a nice amenity, and the lobby area and bar were attractive. There is a spa on the roof deck, but the pedicures, at least, were not very "spa"--I was glad to get color on my toes but this is certainly not a destination spa.

We had a "deluxe oceanfront room" with two double beds. The room was small but clean and attractive, and the bathroom was the same. I would not want to have four people in the room but two would be comfortable. I was worried that the noise from the street would be too loud, but the a/c nicely drowned it out. The housekeeping staff came in twice a day to tidy up.

I would definitely stay here again.

The Best Hotel on South Beach

The Best Hotel on South Beach

Our second stay at The Betsy and it was still incredible as far as we are concerned. Yes, it is expensive but you are paying for an incredible degree of hospitality and position on Ocean Drive and walking distance to Lincoln Road. We had an unexplained noise in our room which kept us awake the first night. Our situation was dealt with very sympathetically and promptly by Margie and The Manager Ed and we were upgraded to a lovely suite. Food at BLT was good and beach services excellent. Reception staff Margie, Ashleigh and Christophe very friendly and helpful.

Doormen and Room Staff always smiling and attentive.

Suggest a room poolside (pool heated and very nice). We can't wait to return.

Great Gem in South Beach

Great Gem in South Beach

I highly recommend this hotel. Great location and great service. It's a quiet hotel in the center of the action. The rooftop deck that faces the ocean is the best kept secret. So relaxing. Morning yoga on certain mornings is awesome. All of the staff were great. Dining options were also wonderful....so much better than other restaurants in the area.

A classy choice

A classy choice

My husband and I stayed at The Betsy for 3 nights in November. Unfortunately, we didn't have great weather so weren't able to use the pool or beach facilities to their fullest. We managed one trip to the bar on the roof terrace, with its great views, shortly after our arrival, but again the weather prevented any further visits. 

That said, this is a beautiful hotel, which provides exceptional service. We were particularly impressed with the staff on the door, who could not have been friendlier. A great deal of thought has clearly gone in to all of the details of the hotel, from the lovely Malin & Goetz products in the bathroom to live jazz in the lobby. 

We also very much liked the hotel location, on Ocean Drive but right at the north end where it's much quieter. 

We did however feel that the drinks from the bar (both in the lobby and on the roof terrace) were somewhat pricey. 

Despite that, this really is a great place to stay and treat yourself to a little bit of luxury.

Stayed here once, but always make sure to stop by when I'm in the area. Always have some friends who swear by it. The decor is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Can't beat BLT being right down stairs, and the comfortable rooms (albeit small). While it does get pricey at times, you must take into account location. From the Ocean Drive selections, The Betsy is by far my favorite so far.

"The magic of The Betsy Hotel"

Five Star Review: Mine was a magical week-long stay. The staff was attentive, interested and engaged. The food at BLT was to die for. The rooftop yoga--which happens Tuesdays, Thursdays, and weekends at 7:30 am--is a well-kept secret and the perfect way to start a day at the beach. My only wish: the stay could have lasted longer. I'm having a happiness hangover.

"Fantastic Holiday at The Betsy"

Five Star Review: We stayed at the Betsy for 12 nights and enyoyed every moment. Lovely room, good comfortable beds and excellent food, especially the steaks at the BLT. greatest thanks to Paul the concierge, he was of great help. He knew just the things we would like to do and always managed to book fantastic trips for us. Quite outstanding was the boat trip with Marc the shark and the fishing involved. We really managed to relax and recover from our busy work life and could only recommend the Betsy. Thank you for the fantastic experience and service.

Five Star Review:  We stayed at the Betsy last week and we were not disappointed. We were there 2 years ago and were so happy to go back.  First of all, the customer service was excellent. The front desk staff were so welcoming and helpful. All those who work there are very friendly and we appreciate that. Once again, the BLT restaurant was amazing. We had three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and all were excellent. We highly recommend the Betsy. Thank you to all for a wonderful experience! See you again!

"Top notch service and amenities"

Five Star Review: We traveled there for 2 nights over labor day weekend. The staff was amazing that the Roof Top is an awesome place to relax. Very nice pool and the beach service is an added bonus. Doesn't get much better than The Betsy. Would highly recommend.

"Stylish South Beach"

Five Star Review:  We booked our hotel stay with Mr and Mrs Smith who never fail to provide top quality stylish hotels. on arrival we were greeted with a glass of champagne and also received a complimentary upgrade to a suite - the first time this has ever happened.Our room overlooked the pool and was beautiful we had 3 TV s in our room - one which was integrated into the bathroom mirror. breakfast was great and service was pleasant and speedy. I used the gym twice and I found it well stocked and modern. We also used both bars the roof top ( very romantic) and the lobby bar where a pianist played in the evenings. Due to the length of our stay I did t use the pool but it looked amazing. We loved the fact we had a reserved area on the beach. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in .

"A hotel with a heart and a soul"

Five Star Review: 

The great location at the quieter end of Ocean Drive, the meticulous and inspired architecture and décor, the perfect and unfailingly cheerful service, and even the brilliant food and drink, are all surpassed by the Betsy's efforts to nurture poetry, music and art. The curated exhibitions in the halls and stairwells, the performers invited to perform in the lounge, the Writer's Room provided gratis to selected scribes and philosophers, and the artists' salons arranged by The Betsy imbue the hotel with an energy and ambience that all guests take home with them.

"South Beach Betsy in an Oasis"

Five Star Review: Charming right sized boutique hotel in the perfect setting at the north corner of famous Lummus (beach) park. Decorating well done; a very well appointed room and bath, as well as, all the designs throughout hotel (especially enjoyed lobby and bar sitting area). They had the lost rock n' roll pics up of the Stones and Beatles when I was there; fun. In town for one day of business, but friendly staff and delightful facility made it seem like a nice relaxing long weekend.

Location is superb, in center of SB history, restaurants, shops and other fun distractions. Enjoyed gym, (treadmills work), yoga morning(s) (I observed) on hotel sky deck, and I took a long rejuvenating morning swim in delicious warm Atlantic before business; it worked for focus. 

I look forward to returning with my lovely wife for a very special getaway at a very special hotel.

"A wonderful way to spend our 45th anniversary."

Five Star Review: We only live an hour north but the get-a-way felt like we were wherever you dream about! We met "william p" and his wife on the beach one day so my comments are much like his. I loved the suite we stayed in. The decorations were very homey and comfortable.I spent the "rainy" times in the sitting room while my husband sat at the desk in the bedroom working on his computer...both very comfortable for what we needed to do. I don't think I'll ever stop talking about the bathroom TV...even took a picture to send to my friends! The beach attendants were friendly and alert to your needs...too bad the weather wasn't cooperating (that's Florida summer for you). If you go, you must see the Roof Top...it is a great place to relax, have a drink, watch the stars,or just CHILL OUT!

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny.

Five Star Review:  Have just left The Betsy after a second visit - nothing has changed - it is still utterly delightful. The overriding reason for returning and recommending to British friends is the immaculate service. Prior to arriving Concierge Paul Dacq had headed up a full schedule of events - I travel worldwide and I have to say he is possibly one of the very best in the hotel industry - all his recommends were inspired. Rooms and facilities glorious - great location - and all in magnificent Miami! Stay nowhere but here.

Five Star Review: We have stayed in many 5 and 6 star resorts and luxury hotels over the world. The Betsy is one of the best boutique hotels we have stayed in. 

The hotel location is fantastic. From the hotel reception, bar, bedrooms etc .... Everything is beautifully decorated, very clean, and cool. 

What makes this hotel are the staff. From the General Manager, the Concierge, the reception staff etc. we have never been made to feel so welcome. They could not be more helpful, or make you feel more welcome. 

They offered great advise on trips and booked these for us. Everything was stress free !

We would 100% come back and recommend to family and friends.

Best Hotel & Staff in South Beach

Best Hotel & Staff in South Beach

Five Star Review:   We initiated our stay at The Betsy Southbeach with a very personal request prior to our arrival. Ed Ponder (Director of Guest Services) was more than kind to personally handle the request. Ed went out of his way during our stay to insure everything was absolutely perfect for our family. Matter of fact the entire staff is amazing, a shout out to Concierge Paul Drecq, Adrian and Margie at the front desk and our doorman Carlos. This hotel is beautiful, in a perfect location on Ocean Drive, the rooms are clean and perfectly decorated. Treat yourself to reservations at the BLT Steakhouse, we did and the family loved it. I arranged a spa day on the terrace for my wife and daughter, which they described as the best ever! To be treated like royalty and to experience the real flavor of Southbeach stay at The Betsy Hotel!!! The Tillotson family would like to thank The Betsy for the wonderful memories!

Five Star Review: My family and I enjoyed our 2 nights at the Betsy despite the July rain!! The hotel was charming and elegant. The lobby felt like someone's own home, inviting and cozy. The desk staff was friendly and knowledgeable and did their best to try to accommodate us with an early check in. The concierge was fantastic....lots of great tips and ideas! Our room had 2 doubles, faced the laneway beside the hotel and was on the smallish side. The beds and linens were comfy and the bathroom with in-mirror TV was a hit with my children. The first night we had the privilege to see Maryel Epps perform in the lobby bar...sensational!!! Our second eve we ate BLT...one of our best meals ever!!!! I can't recommend this hotel highly enough...the location is superb, staff knowledgeable and accommodating and the amenities more than what you may expect from a boutique hotel!

Excellent Hotel in South Beach

Excellent Hotel in South Beach

5 Stay Review:  This hotel was highly recommended by a friend who has stayed there multiple times. I was not disappointed. I took a small group (6 ppl) there for a two night business retreat. We had dinner at Zuma one night and the other was at BLT at the Betsey. Comments:

- the room was great, comfortable bed

- dont miss breakfast outside. excellent food, service and peaceful start to the day

- the beach was great. chair and towel included from the hotel. 

- BLT was also great. their popovers were out of this world. I had breakfast, one lunch and dinner there. all were very good

- concierge was excellent. made sure everything was handled and booked us on an amazing fishing trip

Also, I can tell you that they know how to handle groups and do it well. We were a small group with only 6 rooms but they treated us as if we were a huge group. They have a group sales person, pre arrival inquiries, etc. 

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Miami or southbeach.

5 Star Review: My expectations were exceeded the minute we checked in! Every staff member we encountered were so friendly! We were upgraded to the Royal Suite, which was beautiful and spacious, with a separate sitting area/library with a convertible couch and big screen tv. We were greeted with a fruit platter and a bottle of wine, along with a personal welcome note.

We were there with our daughter, but my husband and I are planning to back for a couple's weekend. We didn't get to go up to the roof , which had the bar and spa. That's definitely a stop on our next visit!

Delightful classy hotel

Delightful classy hotel

Five Star Review on TripAdvisor:  We stayed here for 4th July and were treated like rock stars from the moment we arrived until we left. Nothing was too much effort and this hotel clearly prides itself on providing a more glamorous experience than many of the other boutique hotels along Ocean Drive. It's located on the quieter end of South Beach which we saw as a bonus. However saying that, it's less than a 2 minute walk to the livelier bars along the beach The hotel bar provided excellent cocktails and the bartender was friendly and helpful as he advised us on choices. The roof bar was a little quiet except on 4th July although the bar staff were again very friendly and welcoming. 

The chairs and umbrellas on the beach provided by Boucher Brothers for guests was a nice touch too. 

We dined at BLT on 4th and found the food to be generous and delicious. Certainly I found the experience more enjoyable than the much hyped 'Prime 112' located on the other end of Ocean Drive. 

Overall The Betsy was a delight to stay at and we would definitely return. It's not a cheap hotel however, and the rooms are a little on the compact size but the attention to detail and level of service provided by the staff makes you feel like a star guest.

Room Tip: I found the cheapest rate for the hotel was from phoning them up direct.

I love this hotel. It is beautiful, stylish and elegant without trying too hard or being stuffy. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and the early morning yoga on the roof was a lovely touch. It is at the end of Ocean Drive away from the hustle and bustle which suited us perfectly and the beach is just a short walk. The restaurant is on the pricey side but the food was delicious.

Silver Anniversary Tour

Silver Anniversary Tour

Five Star TripAdvisor Review: 

This hotel was amazing! Immediately I stepped out of the taxi into the white light of the Betsy I felt we were somewhere special. The lobby was buzzing with life and the diners in BLT were tucking into their food with gusto - after travelling most of the day the restaurant was calling to me! However we checked out our room first which was charming - tastefully furnished in tones of white and vibrant green. The separate sitting area had interesting books which if we could have stayed longer I really could have enjoyed. The overall feel of the hotel is a calming colonial oasis in the middle of Miami madness. We ate in the BLT - I had the rosemary chicken which was wonderful and then we moved on to the bar area where there was a girl singing accompanied by a pianist - the ambiance was delightful as were the Martinez's! It's a short walk to the beach where we were setup with comfy chairs and umbrella (fee $16 for the two of us for the day) . The roof top sitting area is lovely too - great views of the beach. The location was excellent and the staff were attentive - the manager sent us chocolate and coconut covered strawberries with a lovely note as a token for our wedding anniversary celebration. All in all a fantastic experience !

Great Boutique Hotel

Great Boutique Hotel

Five Star Review on TripAdvisor: Everything about this hotel was wonderful....the location, the staff, room, hotel, bar, and amenities

The location couldn't have been better...right across from the beach, Starbucks and bike rentals, within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and before the crazy madness of the southern part of Ocean Drive...perfect! 

The staff was magnificent! The staff couldn't have been nicer everywhere in the hotel....the doormen were so kind and loved that they were there too greeting us each time we left and returned! This hotel has a great feeling to it not only friendly but also very modern and classy! 

The Beatles/Rolling Stones photographs throughout was a nice touch. I agree with the previous reviewer that it is a shame that they don't utilize the rooftop after dark, although staying there during off season we loved that we could go to the rooftop after dark and pretty much have it to ourselves, with soft music, comfortable seating, a wonderful ocean breeze and a lovely view...it may be very different during busy season. 

Both the bar and restaurant were great! We found the bar and the entertainment two of the nights very pleasing...great music but not overwhelmingly loud so you could enjoy drinks and conversation at the same time. The bartender was amazing ! We ate dinner one evening at the BLT...outside seating which was wonderful to people watch...the food and service was wonderful...My only complaint is that the mashed potatoes were too soupy for my taste as I like more consistency to them but everything else was wonderful! Loved the popovers! 

We had absolutely no problems in getting our two beach chairs with umbrellas any of the days that we were there and that was such a nice benefit...found all to be friendly and very accommodating. 

We had a King Suite that didn't have a great view but we weren't there for the view from the windows and it couldn't have been more comfortable! 

We can't wait to return and will only stay at the Betsy in South Beach!

Eating outside overlooking South Beach.  I would stop there because that is usually enough.  Besides the beautiful people, it is not every day you get to see a guy back into a fence trying to park a red Ferrari.  While I didn't stay at the Betsy, I did grab lunch.  (next time I will stay).

Service and Food was great - Cuban Sandwich (what else) drinks were on the beach, sun sand, wrecking car...  Yeah I am repeating myself.  It was just a fun afternoon.  Did I mention I was smoking a cigar too???

Service from the moment of our arrival was superb - all staff were friendly and keen to ensure we had the relevant info to enjoy our stay.

We spent time both days on the beach where the complimentary loungers/towels (& service) were excellent! On the final evening we sat on the veranda out front enjoying a cocktail whilst people watching and waiting for our limo to the airport.

Overall we would strongly recommend - great location and service. We will definitely return!!

Pros
- Excellent service from everyone from the Bar staff to front desk. Truly wonderful experience
- The bar is a great place for a pre dinner drink
- Excellent location, walking distance to all the major South Beach hotspots
- rooms are well decorated and very comfortable
- nice touch with the bathroom mirrors having in built in TVs

Cons
- Small rooms, barely enough room to open the suit case on the floor
- not sure if its the same with all rooms but doors aren't auto closing which is unusual and meant that the door was open accidentally a number of times if you didn't pull shut
- very small gym, functional but very small
- shower doesn't have much pressure

overall great experience and I would definitely come back

Special recognition to Ed Ponder, the director of guest services. If you need to know what to do, where to eat, what's going on ... Ed is the go to guy. Despite his busy schedule, he took the time to greet us to ensure everything was ok. The guy is top notch! We scored the ocean view suite and there really is no going back. Great room and view. We also had the pleasure of having Miguel as our server at BLT. He is very attentive and even remembered us from the previous visit. I also need to give a shout out to Paul, the concierge, who goes out of his way to ensure guests have a seamless stay. The Betsy will be my hotel of choice whenever I'm in Sobe.

Excellent service, convenient location

Excellent service, convenient location

Four Star Review: We messed up our reservation and the Betsy Staff provided excellent service to find us another hotel that had a room for the night (unfortunately the Betsy was full that night). When we returned the following day, all the staff gave us another warm greeting; they were always available, ready to assist us and warm, friendly, and helpful.

We stayed in room 210, a one bedroom suite, which faces the back alley. The room had a white noise machine; that in combination with the air condition was a little noisy, so we turned off the white noise machine. No need to wait for the elevator (if you can walk the stairs), the second from was a easy walk up. I recommend the second floor. We also like the products that they supply in the bathroom. 

The bed was comfortable and the accommodation was very good. The view from the roof top deck is nice and in the evening we enjoyed a drink on the deck.

My wife and I enjoyed the beach across the street, taking advantage of towels, lounge chairs, and umbrella. It was convenient and the water and beach were very nice.

The Betsy Hotel is within walking distance of restaurants. Two Miami Beach bike share locations are very close (one across the street and the other down the block); this is a nice way to get around Miami Beach (ditch the car and take a bike or cab).

If our travels take us to Miami Beach again, we will stay at the Betsy Hotel.

It is located on the quite side of the strip and to me was the perfect location as I could walk to many popular spots without driving. go ahead and pay for valet parking it was well worth it as we came and went without worrying about where to park. I will visit again as it was something I will always remember.

5 Star Review on TripAdvisor:

After years of reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I finally had a good enough reason to create an account and write one of my own. I just got back from a three day stay with my girlfriend at The Betsy in Miami, and the experience - across the board - was exceptional. I am, by my own admission, very difficult to please, and extremely discriminating when it comes to travel. Have had the privilege of staying at some amazing hotels/resorts across the world, from Four Seasons to Mandarin Orientals et al, and the Betsy is easily at home in this elite group. The rooms were beautiful and well-appointed, the staff was first class, and there wasn't a single misstep in any direction. From the manager of the hotel to the concierge to the front desk, doormen, cleaning staff, etc, it is every last employee's MISSION to make your stay as good as it humanly can be...a directive on which they all deliver with flying colors. There's a reason that its ranked #1. If you're looking for a classy spot in a great location offering you sanctuary from the "noise" of Miami (but within walking distance, should you seek it), then book a room here. It's a gem.

We stay here for a few days every year. "We" being myself, my wife, and twin 8 year old boys. The Betsy offers cleanliness, courteous service, and immediate access to the beach. Its close enough to the rambunctious part of Ocean Drive for the adults to have fun, but far enough away for the kids to be shielded. BLT is a great restaurant (for meat lovers) and the cocktails in the lobby are tasty and unique. The Betsy stands out for ts charm, sophistication, and quality.

Our Home Away From Home

5 Star Review on TripAdvisor:

We stayed at The Betsy in March, 2013. It was absolutely an amazing experience. We had stayed at hotels such as The W, South Beach before and we found that this was our most preferred hotel.
The hotel is very cool, yet very warm. That is a difficult balance to achieve. The staff is absolutely great. They cater to your needs right away and are very attentive.
The location is best there is. The hotel is at the edge of Ocean Drive, right at the heart of S. Beach. 3 blocks from Lincoln Avenue; on Ocean Drive, however not busy and loud. There is a big park right outside that makes it quieter.
The restaurant is very good. The seafood we had there was better than the one we had at Nobu.
Rooms are not big, but have everything you need.
Strongly recommend everyone to stay here.

We chose TheBetsy for our stay at South Beach based on the fact it is a member of the SLH (small luxury hotels) group. We have stayed at a few of these around the world and have always been impressed with the decor, ambiance and service. They must have very strict criteria for hotels to become a member, because they are all great!
We were not disappointed, our 5 night stay was divine. We were upgraded to a suite, so had plenty of room to spread out. The restaurant, BLT was excellent, great service, delicious food. Expensive unless you select their 4 course special, and then it becomes quite cheap relative to other restaurants in South Beach.
Location is right at the end of all the Art Dec buildings, but its classier than the rest. Definitely a cut above the rest. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Highly recommended!

Fantastic base for a trip to Miami

Fantastic base for a trip to Miami

Five Star Review on TripAdvisor: We stayed at The Betsy in a Superior pool view room for three nights in April and would highly recommend this hotel. The staff were incredibly helpful and pleasant which added to our stay. Do have a cocktail at the rooftop bar. This hotel is at the "quieter" end of Ocean View and the lovely beach is just across the road. Very enjoyable sitting outside with a drink just watching the world go by!

A South Beach haven

5 out of 5 stars review:

From meeting Robert's smiling face at the door on arrival, to the courteous and friendly service at check-out, the staff at the Betsy are some of the best in the business... always pleased to help but never obtrusive or in the way.
We went with a family of 5 which is a bit of a squeeze in the small rooms, and a lot expensive if you have to take two rooms.
I recommend an ocean view room, apart from the every changing crazy SoBe landscape of exercise freaks, dolled-up couples, muscle-bound skateboarders and just plain weirdo's, the sea view seems to make the rooms much, much bigger.

Breakfast is one of the huge pleasures, outside on the sidewalk watching the world go by... great quality food and the expected good service.

Dinner at BLT, the resident "upscale" steakhouse is a treat. Perfect steak, good wines and huge, high quality sides... but at a price.

"At a price" sums up the Betsy, it is a bit like owning a Rolls Royce... if you have to ask how much the bills are, don't bother getting one! If you don't, relax and enjoy the ride!

Perfect!!!

5 out of 5 stars review: We stayed at the Betsy for a girls long-weekend away and loved everything about this hotel! The rooms and hotel were immaculate, the service was impeccable (Robert and the concierge were very helpful and friendly), and the location was perfect! After spending the day at the beach across yhe street, we would relax every afternoon on their incredible Roofdeck and order cocktails and a delicious chopped salad! We dined at BLT restaurant for breakfast and dinner and enjoyed all meals. This hotel was heaven and we will definitely be returning soon!!

Amazing location, Fantastic hotel, great staff. Awesome Honeymoon

5 out of 5 stars review: We have just been lucky enough to have spent our honeymoon at The Betsy for the week, getting back today.

To start with the hotel is a touch of class, the decor is tastefully complete feels like somewhere special. The location is right next to a palm tree lined grass area that lies between the hotel and the beach. The hotel offers a beach bed service that is included in the price and was a nice ouch.

The staff were really polite and went out of their ways to help us have a great stay. Breakfasts each morning were spot on. The steaks in the evening were easily among the best I have ever had.

Our room faced the pooling the inside of the building and was on the 3rd floor. It was quiet and spacious, clean and very well maintained. The bed was amazing and the bed linen was top notch.

Really happy we chose it for our honeymoon, it delivered more than we expected. Thanks for a great week.

5 out of 5 stars review: My partner and I stayed for one night at the Betsy. We arrived at 7pm after coming into the city without a prior reservation. We were given a superior pool view room, which was beautiful. The staff were friendly and attentive, particularly Adam on the front desk who checked us in. Our room rate included continental breakfast which was very good. The location on Ocean Drive was excellent. We will definitely return to the Betsy on our next visit to Miami Beach. We loved this hotel. Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

A nice small hotel with a colonial ambiance

4 out of 5 star review: Arrived after long flight to Miami for a one night stop over en route Marco Island. Hotel is located by the beautiful beach and they provide beach towels, loungers and umbrella without charge. Hotel has a colonial feel inside and out with a bar restaurant area that reminds me of Ernest Hemmingway's favourite hotel in Havana. Staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. They organised a hire car from our preferred renter without any problems. Restaurant dinner was excellent but pricey. Beware of the wines as you will struggle to buy one for less than 50 dollars. Didn't have breakfast as Starbucks was just over the road. We booked a standard room with pool view. Betsy is a Small Leading Hotels of the World hotel and as we are members we got a complimentary room upgrade to ocean view. Don't expect a fantastic view as it is obscured by many palm trees and the windows don't open. The room was small and crowded with two queen beds and was in need of redecorating. Not bad but not perfect. Bathroom was fresh classy and modern. A nice hotel but I wouldn't rush back to it.

Everything Perfect!

Everything Perfect!

We stayed at the Betsy and it was the perfect end to our time in the US. Our room was gorgeous, well laid out with probably the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in!

We didn't leave the hotel much, just made the most of the facilities - ate several great meals at BLT, cooled off in the pool, entertained with cocktails on the roof top deck and snuggled up to watch a movie!

One thing that really stands out here is the service. Impeccable, friendly, personal service at every turn. We really felt so welcome and looked after, this really was the cherry on top of a perfect hotel experience.

If you are staying in Miami, this is THE place to stay!

Room Tip: If our room is anything to go on, I am sure they will all be lovely!

Excellent location, lovely exclusive service

5 out of 5 star rating: We stayed here for three nights and found it to be an excellent spot on Ocean Drive. The staff are very helpful and accommodating and email several times before you arrive to see if they can assist you in booking tours or restaurants.


The rooms are light and airy, but not overly large. We would stay here again, because it is a small hotel offering personal service, which we prefer to the larger more impersonal ones around the area.
We could see Miami Beach from our room which was great, and although it was noisy on the Saturday night until the early hours, Sunday and Monday were much quieter... But it IS Ocean Drive after all ...!!!

Very smart hotel. Great location. Helpful Staff - 5 Star Review

Very smart hotel. Great location. Helpful Staff - 5 Star Review

We stayed at the Betsy for 3 nights in an Ocean view room above the main entrance, so overlooking the beach/ocean.

The room is compact (well, it is Ocean Drive) but was very nicely furnished: shutters, ceiling fan, tv and ipod dock, and an enormous bed. Very comfortable, and clean.
The bathroom was similarly compact but had all we needed and the walk in shower was nice. I can take or leave having a tv screen in the bathroom mirror! The in-room toiletries were nice.

The rooftop garden is well worth a visit to read, relax and just chill out watching the ships go by in the distance. Lots of loungers and seats to use. Watch out for the bar prices - ouch!

Location is great. At the top end of Ocean Drive so you have direct access to the beach / boardwalk and the rest of Ocean Drive itself. Within minutes you can walk to Collins/Washington and to the Lincoln Mall, so there's plenty of options for sightseeing, restaurants, bars etc.

We used the restaurant once for dinner. The service was typically American (servers who like to chat their way through their shift - this is not a criticism, rather an observation. We saw the same in supermarkets, department stores and elsewhere), and was a little on the casual / slow side. However, they were polite, knew the menu inside out and were able to answer our questions. The food was also very good.

Other staff at the hotel were also very helpful - we made a small amendment to our booking at check-in without any issues whatsoever.
I would also recommend joining the SLH Club before booking as you can qualify for an upgrade or special offers.

We didn't use the pool (preferred the beach) and the courtyard looked very quiet anytime we were passing by but the pool area looked very clean and tidy.

Would definitely recommend hotel.

Lovely boutique hotel - 4 Star Review on Yelp.com

Lovely boutique hotel - 4 Star Review on Yelp.com

What a lovely boutique hotel!! We stayed at the Betsy for three nights this past week and loved it.

It's a beautiful beach front hotel located in the famous architectural district of Miami. At first sight the rooms appear small and cramped but once you settle in you realize that there is plenty of space in the room. The rooms are beautifully designed with lots of closet space. The decor is all white with a touch of color like green or orange. Everything is color coordinated and very comfortable.

I loved the attention to detail in the room. It was very well planned and comfortable. The best part was the small personal In-Room Library with autographed books by major writers. In fact the hotel is so committed to Arts and philanthropy that they have a separate writer's room.

The marble bathrooms are well stocked with (MALIN+GOETZ) luxury apothecary bath amenities.

The hotel itself if small but very cozy and well maintained. The staff is excellent! I'd like to give a shout-out to Paul from the concierge who was excellent and helped us with various dining reservations. Thank you Paul! The housekeeping was very helpful and prompt too. They did provide us with extra slippers, toothpaste and bandage when needed.

The hotel itself has a lovely roof deck facing the Atlantic ocean. One can enjoy the beautiful sunset stretched on a chaise lounge. They do have a private pool and a spa for pure relaxation. The hotel is located beachfront on Ocean Drive at 14th Street and offers beach attendant service to provide chairs and umbrellas. If you are a guest at the hotel you get 2 chairs and an umbrella on the beach for free.

Thursday evenings they have live music in the lounge. We sipped some wine and enjoyed a game of chess while listening to the band.

The BLT steak is an excellent restaurant at the hotel. We dined three times on separate occasions. The Brunch was delicious. They have the biggest French toast I have ever eaten. It's HUGE and delicious! All the meals were scrumptious and left us very happy and content.

My favorite part about this hotel are the wonderful black and white photographs of the Beatles band. Adorning the walls of the hotel are these lovely photographs of the band taken in their early years. They are simply beautiful and add a special touch!

I am very satisfied with my stay at the hotel and will highly recommend it. Needless to say I will come back for more!!
