    Beautiful calm oasis

    Beautiful hotel in the quieter end ocean drive, it was like arriving at a calm oasis in all the madness, room was absolutely stunning every luxury we needed for our stay.

    Great location and love that this is not a ‘huge’ hotel - has a more personal, unique feeling. Great pool, room was wonderful - a little noisy from the street and when there were functions on, but it’s Miami I guess. Only problem was a billing issue upon check out. We’d been gifted a bottle of champagne by friends upon our arrival which we sent back as did not want to drink. We were told it would the value would be credited to our account. When we checked out, it had not been meaning the meal we had in lieu of the champagne we had to pay for. That was fine - but if the staff changed their mind about this - they should have contacted us to let us know and left an sense that I didn’t trust them that they had refunded our friends... which is not great. As such, I probably wouldn’t stay here again.

  • 6.0.Good

    The Betsy is an ok hotel. I did hope for something a bit more from it though. Me and my partner split our holiday between the Plymouth hotel (4 days) and the Betsy (3 days). The Betsy was supposed to be our treat and spent a lot of money to stay there. (Around £300 a night including taxes). The Negatives - Rooftop pool and other sections of the hotel was shut on 2 of the days we stayed there. (Friday and Saturday from 3pm). We were supposed to get complimentary drinks and snacks between 3-6pm however the bar was so full we couldn’t get to the front and waited 20 minutes before leaving and there were no snacks at the bar. It’s nice to unwind by the pool But only managed to do that on one night. The other pool we could use only has about 8 beds and less sunshine so not ideal for a big hotel. - Staff at reception weren’t very welcoming and took a long time to check in and just gave one word answers. Not caring how our stay was etc. - Nobody made us aware of the weddings before hand (I’m confident they would have known at the time of us booking) that they had weddings and we wouldn’t be able to use the facilities available. We probably wouldn’t have booked had we known. - No coffee facilities in the room. The Positives - Breakfast is fantastic and absolutely would recommend it. $26 dollars +tax for the Betsy breakfast. - Nice room with a lovely wildflower bookmark left on the bed. - Central location

    Brilliant Betsy

    The Betsy is a brilliant hotel with lots of lovely features. We have stayed there many times and always want to return. The only criticism of this trip was our room had a tiny amount of storage for clothes etc. Wouldn’t accept this room again. But still plan to revisit the Betsy but will be more demanding on the room.

    Good 1940's art deco style hotel v well located.

    Lovely 1940's art deco hotel with loads of character, very well positioned on the attractions on south beach. All staff very friendly and helpful. Stayed in a sea view room at the front which had good a/c and ceilng fan, well appointed with comfortable bed. Would definitely stay again.
