History

A Historic Oceanfront Hotel

Built in 1942 by L. Murray Dixon, the architect responsible for many famous Miami Beach Art Deco hotels, The Betsy stands as the lone surviving example of Florida Georgian architecture on Ocean Drive today. Enamored with “the colonial chic” of the post Great Depression era, Dixon’s ‘Betsy Ross Hotel’ has an expansive four-column portico and signature shuttered windows. Located at the edge of the water with an Ocean Deck that peers three stories above the Atlantic, The Betsy is a historic boutique hotel that combines 21st century technology with the architecture and grace of yesteryear.

Reminiscent of a grand colonial estate, this historic landmark hotel perpetuates vintage glamour.
