We stayed at The Betsy because of the great reviews. By and large, it lives up to the great reviews. It is a beautiful hotel on Ocean Drive directly across from the beach and park. It is wonderful, inside and out. Nicely decorated and clean. The only two issues that I would b

I visit the Betsy every year for brakfast, lunch or dinner. This 2018, I had breakfast there during the Art Basel week. Love this hotel, very friendly staff. Ask for Martin the Argentinian waiter, he will make sure you have an unforgettable time.

The staff was the best! Absolutely every staff member we encountered was pleasant, smiling and very welcoming! It was the highlight of my stay.

Arixis on the beach (14th street) was great! He was very sweet and made sure we had everything we needed the whole time.

Does anyone know how bad the seaweed is at the beach in front of The Betsy?
No seaweed on the beach in front of the Betsy. Gorgeous sand kept very clean. Bit of seaweed on the waterline and a slope down to the water’s edge but not an issue.

Is there two parts of the Betsy and is the decore different? I read somewhere another hotel was linked to expand the Betsy. It appears there is a tradition and a more contemporary unless some of the pix's we are seeing are old & new. What is your pick for the best area in the hotel to stay. Looking for light, bright & happy room with a cozy traditional beach vibe? What is your room preference and why?
Hi, Yes we were staying in the newer part, which room-wise looked like it belonged to the main building. Style wise it is contemporary, colonial style. i liked it al lot, but it is not your clean bright white modern hotel like the SLS.. but then again, prices of those hotels are lot higher also.. Hope I could help. Sander
