Great hotel - amazing staff!
Lovely stay at The Betsy. Upon arrival we were treated to a glass of Prosecco and a copy of the N.Y. Times. Staff was always around and friendly. Room was fine - not particularly large but adequate. While we found South Beach to be not as nice as we had hoped it would be, the hotel is on the northern edge of the long strip of restaurants and clubs and, thus, is relatively quiet. Beach is literally across the street

Good 6.0
problematic in spots, good in others
We were there for a close friend's & family wedding weekend. Several of us (including me) had NO AIR - it was 92 degrees with pure humidity - we had a fitful night our first night there and asked for maintenance to come, multiple times - no one even suggested a new room and it was late, and we were exhausted. The hotel did "address the issue" when WE came to them the second day and calmly explained that our room was registered at 80 degrees in the night - it was just unacceptable. Luckily we were moved to a room with air and they waived some fees and gave us lunch there on them which was absolutely amazing I must say- the place downstairs has GREAT FOOD. I should note the original room also was not the king that I prepaid for in advance - at least the 2nd night we were very happy & comfortable and grateful just to be able to function! The property is funky and very confusing - all the hallways are very "moist" and warm so be forewarned - if you have any aversion to humidity you will not be happy in the many dark halls. Also the halls are SO DARK and there are steps that are unsafe as they are not even illuminated (hotel: light that bottom step in that staircase that leads up to the rooftop!!). Overall, I am happy because I was there for a special occasion with people I love being with - we dealt with it, but I think this property is aware there are some comfort issues, especially in June - I can't imagine what they will do July & August! Also- love the rooftop pool!

Lovely hotel with issues in service
First of all let me say I love this hotel. Yes it is expensive, what isn't in South Beach, but for this stay, unfortunately I had issues with the ladies at the front desk. It seems as though the ladies there do nit have that something extra that I have been accustomed to expect from the Betsy having stayed there several times over the years. When tying to extend my stay a couoke of days, I had to go online to do so because they were unvale to accomodate me. I had go back down to the front desk with my reservstion and actually had to tslk with the manager to settle the matter. I do have to say the manager seemed to know whstvwas going on... When I called down to reconfirn my late check out, they tried to tell me I had to leave at an earlier time. Maybe its telling of the times that we should just stick to doing everything online. Maybe I am just an old school person that thinks the people at the property shoukd know what they are doing. But when a hotel has as their slogan "Expect no more", I understand that as being wowed by every single aspect. In this case I expected much more.
