My husband and I traveled to Miami recently for our "babymoon," one last trip together before our baby arrives. The accommodations at The Betsy were comfortable and clean, and the hospitality was excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better location, as we were situated at the end of Ocean Drive, which made for a quick walk to the beach...

And if you love steak BLT Steak has the BEST steak we have ever had and we have travelled and ate at some of the best places in Chicago, San Fran and Atlanta.

The Betsy's service, vibe, location and decor are great. Our room faced an alley, however, and I didn't get the full picture when making the res. A lot of $$$ to see garbage trucks going in and out. Nice to have BLT Steak there, and a great rooftop deck.

Good location though rooms at front hear bar music and noise. Small bathrooms, especially for the price. Additional daily resort fee even if you don't use the beach. Service great, atmosphere good, food excellent. Roof deck fabulous.

We went there upon recommendation.Had lunch outside on the terras: sopisticated,linen,fine silverware. Staff very efficient,but not very friendly: more butlerlike or as old fashioned service in a Michelinstarred restaurant in Paris.A smile would be welcome. The food ( we tried shrimps,tuna tataki and grilled swordfish) was excellent and prepared to perfection.The shrimpcoctail,however,was an oversimplified variation: just 3 large shrimps on...

We have stayed at a lot of nice south beach hotels but this is our favourite. The location is good - close to the crazy part of the strip but relatively quiet. BLT is a great restaurant on site. There is a Starbucks across the street and easy access to the beach. Then rooms are nice and service very good.

This boutique hotel offers all the amenities and lovely touches that you'd expect from a luxury property -- from champagne at check-in to soft robes in the rooms. It's in a great location on Ocean Drive: close enough to the night life a few blocks away, but not right in the thick of it that the crowds and noise are...

Our week at The Betsy was just perfect. Centrally located on Ocean Drive, but thankfully not right in the bustle. Beautiful hotel, very helpful concierge service and excellent spa staff (spa located on the roof top not optimal in bad weather, but all the nicer when the sun shines). Fantastic food, but most of the waiters/waitresses not too attentive and...

The Betsy Hotel is a perfect haven of tranquillity in the heart of Southbeach, beautifully located to appreciate all the Art Deco beauty of the area, as well as being a stone's throw from the beach. The hotel's chic colonial style is complemented by the fabulous, friendly service of the staff and the fact that it is a boutique hotel...

INCREDIBLY happy with this hotel. Everything about it. Location is right where you want to be. Spacious, unique, comfortable rooms. Modern touch with vintage feel. I have nothing bad to say. Emmanuel Mercado -- the front desk person with whom I had the most interaction -- was particularly helpful. Took lots of time to help set us up with everything...
