This is such a fun vacation hotel right across from the best beach on earth! We felt like we were in the middle of the action of South Beach but in a safe and upscale hotel with reasonable prices and a warm ambiance! Our room was white with a little wicker with views of lush palm trees and blue water....

We recently spent a night at the Betsy, returning from a trip to the Caribbean, before traveling onward the next day. What a wonderful place. It's an elegant and very comfortable hotel, with a Southern vibe to it. The staff are excellent and accommodating. Our ocean-front room, though on the small side, was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Breakfast on...

We had a fantastic time during my daughter's wedding at The Betsy Hotel. Our guest flew in from around the world to enjoy the nuptials celebration out on the deck,and inside in the lounge for the reception!

Very friendly staff and modern sleek clean rooms. The valet, bellman, and front desk all were very polite and helpful. Our favorite part was the roof top deck very relaxing. We had reservations at BLT restaurant and would highly recommend the steaks...I had the 22oz bone-in rib eye and my wife and the 10oz skirt steak.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Betsy. Great location, just a short walk to the beach and just away from busy Collins Ave. We had a small room but it was nicely decorated with super comfy beds. Nice lobby with colonial feel; a welcome contrast to some of the ultra modern hotels in Miami.

A perfect spot at the quieter end of ocean drive, this is an 'old school' cozy boutique hotel. No loud music or loud kids! But a lovely atmosphere, the BLT restaurant is excellent, and all the hotel staff are friendly and efficient. We stayed on our way down to the keys, and had a minor problem with our room, but...

Charming and cozy boutique hotel on the quiet end of South Beache's otherwise manic Ocean Blvd. Rooms, food, amenities and beautiful beach right across street make this a perfect long weekend getaway!

It's in the perfect spot if you want to stay in South Beach, near enough to everything, but at the quieter end of Ocean Drive. Liked the roof top terrace, but they did keep having events up there which meant it wasn't as peaceful as it was normally. The rooms aren't the biggest, neither are they the most luxurious, but...

Brought my fiance for a quick trip to Miami for her birthday. Booked the Betsy mainly because of it's strong Tripadvisor ratings. Overall it did not disappoint and I'd stay there again.

“While there was a nice Keurig machine, there is no frig so I would suggest filling the ice bucket the night before and putting in the 2 waters they leave complimentary so that you can have some nice cold water in the morning. The in-hotel free continental breakfast was great. I wish we had dinner at LT as I heard excellent things about it from our cousins who live in Coral Gables. ”
