    Love this dig friendly hotel.

    Best boutique hotel I have ever stayed! Loved meeting Betsy and Rosa the golden retrievers. Every staff was beyond accommodating and the food was expensive but delicious. I would stay there again next time I’m in Miami.

    The staff is incredible. Came in on a red-eye and they made sure I had a room available for early check in. The music in the lobby is terrific. My only complaint is they used to carry the NYT's and now they do not have newspapers in the lobby.

    Comfort of Key West with South Beach right outside

    Great Boutique Hotel that feels like you are in Key West but in the heart of South Beach

  • 6.0.Good

    Would not recommend.

    There was vomit splattered on my sheet when I got there. I requested it get changed at the front desk twice and it never happened. I had to stop a housekeeper in the hall before bedtime to get a sheet and make my own bed. Our waiter never came back even though the restaurant wasn’t busy and we went without water/drinks for the whole meal. We eventually had to go to the host to get the check. The rooftop pool is on the back/side of the hotel so you can’t see the beach/ocean. There’s a rooftop wine bar at the ocean front side but it never seemed open.

    Great stay overall.

    We stayed in a suite. The staff and facilities are great. The outside noise was expected, since the hotel is close to everything. It’s very lively, which has its pros and cons when you have small kids. Also, with 4 guest in a suite, it would have been nice if the resort fee included more than just 2 loungers and 1 umbrella.

    Definitely coming back

    The staff at The Betsy was amazing from the moment we walked in the door. We were welcomed at the desk by Travis with a glass of Prosecco and Art, the concierge, immediately asked if we needed dinner reservations. He found out we were celebrating our anniversary and he sent a bottle of wine to our room. The piano player in the lounge added a very pleasant ambiance. Every time we passed an employee they greeted us with a smile (it was obvious even with a mask on) and a “good evening/morning”. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. Thank you for making our stay with you a memorable one.

    Mixed Opinion Overall not great

    I have a mixed opinion on this place. There were some great aspects and others that were poor. I will start with the positive. The reception and check in to the hotel was great, they gave you a glass of champaign and greeted you nicely. Check in was fast and they attended to our needs and explained everything we needed to know about the hotel. The hotel itself is a very beautiful boutique hotel with a great location if you want to be in the art deco area at the quieter end of South Beach. The restaurant was excellent, definitely order “The Betsy” breakfast it is superb and the service was excellent. On the negative side was the overall condition of the property. The air conditioner in the room was deafening and would wake us up in the middle of the night. Our remote was not working for the TV, which took three requests to get replaced. The telephone to call the front desk did not work and would just go nowhere. The elevators stopped working while we were there for most of the third day. On the second day the hot water went out all day, which meant cold showers, but also that the restaurant could only serve a limited menu. Room cleaning was sporadic and unreliable. Overall cleanliness lacked, I attached a photo here of the light in our room which was full of dust and was above our bed. Lastly, after we checked out and received our bill they had charges on the bill that were not ours, they did correct this, but it was just another issue.
