"Setting for a great trip"
I 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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Boutique Hotel!"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good but expensive"
Very good Location, excellent Restaurant, Hotel too expensiveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boutique hotel on Ocean Drive, South Beach"
Beautiful hotel steps away from the beach and a Starbucks. Centrally located, we were able to walk anywhere we wanted. The lobby is gorgeous and our room was perfect for us. They had comfortable chairs on the front porch that we sat in and people watched. The roof deck was amazing. You could see the beach over the palm trees and at night it was romantic […] to look up at the stars. BLT, the hotel restaurant, was phenomenal too. Can't wait to go back.

"I will NEVER stay anywhere else in Miami!!!"
Location, Staff, Room and Hotel, food..5 star! Everything. Ed, the manager will make sure you have the best stay and tell you where to go to make the best out of your trip (Adam and Margo will as well!) Thomas, the bellman seriously is like a ninja!! Before you can even ask for help he is like jumping out trees, behind doors, off the elevator, coming […] up the stairs! My friend and I knew everyone by name at the hotel and they were amazing. The room is so comfortable! Best bedding!! I always stay at the Ritz and this was a risk for me.. so glad I stayed! My friend stayed at the fit and we both agree the Betsy is better. The food at BLT is amazing!!! I ate there almost every meal! Dave, the attender, so nice and totally cool (a story to that one) he looks out for the guest of the hotel for sure. The beach is across the street, they reserve chairs and umbrellas for you (Zack) totally hooked us up. Starbucks is directly across the street. And your in walking distance to everything! You just can't beat the accommodations!! Can't wait to go back!! Thank guys Can't leave Bryan, Johnson and Chris out! they were all awesome!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming boutique hotel"
If you want the diverse south beach action at your doorsteps but not INSIDE your hotel, then the Betsy is for you. Full of charm, this small boutique hotel is literally next to the beach and all the large sceny hotels so you can both enjoy the SoBe crowds and good, quiet nights of sleep in the peaceful Betsy. It has a more colonial and intellectual […] flair and the clientele is way more mature than us (we are in our late 30s) but with style and wit, at the image of the beatles and rolling stones photographs displayed throughout the property. The biggest drawbacks were the outdoor areas. The pool was small and confined to a tiny, charmless courtyard despite the hotel's best efforts to dress it up. The rooftop was also small and not happening (we were only two small groups enjoying drinks on a saturday night at 8). The best outdoor area is the restaurant's on the sidewalk, but that's not viable for an entire morning/ afternoon. If I come back with children I'll probably pick a hotel with a larger, more lively pool area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Would be embarrassing to have to tell your friends that you stayed at any of the others lower down the South Beach when one could stay at the Betsy. Expensive, but that is what make the difference.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice hotel but rooms small and bathroom too small. great location !Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Champagne check in was a great touch. Rooms are beautiful but on the small side. Very friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A grand place!"
My husband and i stayed in South Beach the week before Christmas for my 60th birthday. What a treat! We chose the Betsy because of its location - across from the beach on the northern end of South Beach. A much quieter location than hotels further down. Often, a hotel is the place where one simply stays, not necessarily spends time. However, the Betsy […] was a delightful place to do just that. From enjoying the cafe-like atmosphere in the front of the hotel (very continental) to relaxing on the roof top with its fabulous views to even just enjoying the Lobby, we loved just being there! The books and photos of the Beatles and Rolling Stones added to the terrific ambiance. Our room was wonderfully comfortable and simply, beautifully decorated. The restaurant was outstanding - delicious food and constant unobtrusive attention. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great upscale hotel in prime south beach location"
We stayed for a night after trip to the Caribbean. Outstanding service. Amazing art and photos on the walls. Nice rooftop deck. Sushi was wonderful! !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to beach and dining."

"Best hotel we observed on South Beach."
Clean, attentive staff, great room, and very nice public spaces. A far cry from the other hotels we passed by.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a very nice, small hotel perfectly located very closely to the South Beach. The staff offers very good service. However, I had a badluck with the room. When I came I was offered an upgrade to the studio which appeared to be spacious and very nice room at 1st floor. Then, at 5.30 am on Saturday I had the "suprising" unexpceteed wake up alert […] - the garbage truck just started to collect garbage just next to the window. This process lasted around 10 minutes but it was really very noisy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff and public areas were excellent. I was first given a room that overlooked a garbage strewn alley, and charged $30.00 to change to a room with a pool view. The window here did look out to the pool, and beyond that directly into the lobby/bar area, so that there was no sense of privacy. The rooms, though nicely decorated, are small. Bathrooms […] have no tubs. This hotel is not worth the exorbitant price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful time!"
The staff at The Betsy was very nice and attentive to our needs. Can't wait to stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Classic boutique hotel in a great location"
Very cozy boutique hotel at the beginning of South Beach. The hotel were very friendly & helpful, and seemed very genuine, not the very nice just because they have to. The best thing about the hotel is the beautiful decor and arty feel to it which makes you feel very comfortable, right a nice home.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Birthday Celebration at The Betsy"
The hotel is charming and beautiful and just what I expected. We had never visited South Beach before were extremely happy that The Besty is on the end of the Ocean Drive "strip". Just a few blocks away was all the excitement but the location was quiet and we were able to actually get some sleep. The beach is right across the street and the umbrella/chair […] service was included and so easy to use. The hotel itself is like stepping into another time but with 1st class eminities. Our favorite has to be the rooftop deck and wellness spa. We sat on the deck every evening and the view is amazing. Had massages outside where you could hear the birds. The staff was spectacluar. We received 1st class service everywhere in the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing service, great location, beautiful hotel"
Husband and baby tagged along on a very quick trip to Miami. I knew South Beach well enough to know there were few hotels stylish and fun but within our budget, family friendly and close to the convention center. The Betsy staff was incredible, particularly bell/front door. They went above and beyond to help us with car seats and strollers, settled […] us is our room with a pack n play and even gave our daughter a toy to play with. Our room was very comfortable, the hotel was lovely. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel - Amazing Stay!"
I took my parents to Miami for a weekend break and we couldn't have picked a better hotel! Close enough to all the crazy action, yet far enough for quiet and relaxation, and you cannot beat the proximity to the beach. Beautiful hotel, great spacious room, wonderful roof-top terrace, and pool was fantastic. You receive complimentary beach towels, chairs […] and umbrellas, and free water bottles in your room. I travel often and the one thing that really makes this hotel stand out is the amazing customer service - from the moment the cab pulled up, we were greeted with A+ service. The staff is so friendly, caring and accomodating. The location was great as well - across the street is the beach and a small shopping center with a Starbucks, liquor store, and pizza parlor. At the end of the block is a bigger shopping center with lots of restaurants. I would defintely recommend and plan to go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach & shopping & WOW customer service"
Arrived early and luggage was secured so we could go out and see the sights or go to the beach across the steet. Excellent customer service from the frontdesk to housekeeping. Beds were great and room was clean and a safe was provided in each room.Kids loved the pool. Roof top bar and lounge chairs were fun place to hangout in the evening for our family […] of 6. Stayed 2 nights and will again. Oh, and we were called by the desk about 11:00AM that our rooms were ready. A big WOW. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Perfect location, wonderful staff. Would repeat it without any doubts.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall, I enjoyed my stay. I did have a problem with room service--my breakfast order was not what I ordered, but I did not complain--I didn't have time to change the order due to a business appointment. I also purchased a bottle of wine and noticed that some of it was missing from the bottle when I returned to my room. All of the personnel were extremely […] helpful and so friendly.

"Great Luxury Bontique Hotel"
Love this hotel and not flooded with too many people like the big hotels in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but pricey place on Ocean Drive"
Many pluses -- especially Ocean Drive address and the refreshing care the hotel experience involves -- with a couple irritating minuses: exorbitant parking ($41 versus paying $15 at the public garage on 13th & Collins) and a $15 "resort fee" for wireless internet and using a towel if you want one. The "fee" is mandatory, so it's really just a cheesy […] way to jack up the cost of your stay by pretending the room rate is lower than it is. A place this nice should not use such slithering tactics. Other than that, this is a fine hotel in a great location staffed by professionals. The rooms are excellent -- clean, well furnished, and a refreshing change from the majority of chaos that comes with Ocean Drive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was ok. I was expecting more for $350 a night. The room was super tiny but clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet Elegance on Ocean Drive"
I had some problems with hotels.com which have since been rectified. The Betsy is the nicest hotel I've stayed in on Ocean Drive. The other hotels I've stayed in were very noisy late at night but this hotel room was quiet. They have a very helpful staff, a great restaurant, BLT, and a lovely lobby/lounge which has live music during the week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We drove to The Betsy after dropping my daughter at the Miami airport; instead of driving back to Delray Beach we decided to spend our first night with no kids in Miami Beach.

"AWESOME LOCATION SMALL ROOM"
THIS IS THE PERFECT LOCATION SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM THE NIGHT LIFE TO GET SOME SLEEP BUT CLOSE ENOUGH TO ENJOY IT TOO!! I LOVED THIS HOTEL BUT, THE ROOM WAS SMALL WITCH DID NOT BOTHER US TOO MUCH WE DO NOT SPEND TIME IN THE ROOMS WE ENJOY GOING OUT AND BEING ADVENTUROUS. THE RESTAURANTS AND BARS WERE JUST AT THE CORNER OF THE […] BLOCK NOT FAR AWAY AND IT IS REALLY EASY TO GET AROUND. THE BEACH SERVICE THAT WAS INCLUDED WITH THE HOTEL WAS AWESOME!! OSCAR IS A REAL CUTIE!!! IF YOU PLAN ON DRINKING BRING YOUR WALLET!! VERY EXPENSIVE!! OUR HOTEL HAS THE BEST FOOD EVER PLEASE TRY THE CRÊPE SOUFFLÉ!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved all of it except the noise heard from within the room. Great serve, great food, great location, will definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Staff, pleasant stay"
I stayed here for the weekend in May 2013. The hotel itself is nice and clean, the staff at checkin, the bell boy, the restaurant staff were all very very pleasant and i really enjoyed the stay here. The rooftop has very nice view of the beach and the hotel itself is very close to the beach. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, but the […] only thing that i didnt like was the smell in the hotel room. I am guessing its from the water pipe (either has not been cleaned for some time or is very old), in the bathroom, which also gave the room a weird smell. Other than that, as i already mentioned, all around great experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The only place to stay on Ocean Dr"
Being on Ocean Drive it's not a noisy or really rowdy place like other's further down the road. The staff and building is great, love love love the roof deck. The pool is small and cute but you have beach access with great attendants to not really needed. Only downside we had was that the ceilings must be VERY thin because you hear the people upstairs […] with their every move and if they are a heavy walker you'll notice...also once morning could perfectly hear the TV above us it was so loud...I would suggest they put a volume max limit on their TVs. Our room sat at the back on the alley behind the hotel where the service entrance and deliveries are which didn't really pose any problem or noise save for one morning about 9am when there was a garbage truck.
