“Quiet elegance”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

This is our favorite Miami place for a getaway. The Betsy is an oasis on Ocean Avenue, perfectly located so that you're close to all the action on South Beach but not in the middle of the noise at four in the morning. The new owners remodeled it a few years ago, and every detail has been attended to with thoughtfulness and style. The piece de resistance is the BLT restaurant, a french-styled steakhouse that is simply fabulous.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side, off the avenue, are quieter.

Dear Debra D.,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us! I'm happy that you were able to appreciate the attention to detail that we put into each and every decision at the Betsy, whether it be design, service or our partners, including of course BLT-Steak! We have some exciting developments with BLT coming in the next few months, and look forward to your next visit with us to experience them!

If you want THE best food in South Beach without all the haggling and annoying people trying to drag you into their establishment... You want to eat at the BLT Steakhouse. The food quality was beyond amazing, the service, top of the line, and the best waiter for sure was Raymond. Professional, personal and attentive. We will be back every trip to South Beach without a doubt.

My daughter and I stayed at The Betsy for a few nights this week. It was ideally located near the fun but not too noisy. Particularly note worthy was the concierge, Paul, who went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. He arranged great restaurants and a fun day sight seeing by jet skis (ask for Felipe!). We look forward to going back.

Dear Amy D.,
I'm so happy to read that you and your daughter had a great time here at the Betsy. We beleive our Concierge Department is second to none in Miami Beach, and considering how many times Paul is mentioned, many others seem to feel the same way! We too are looking forward to your return visit(s)!
