About The Betsy - South Beach

Vintage-luxe hotel with rooftop spa, across from South Beach

Across from the beach
Miami's famous South Beach lies just footsteps from the door of this historic beachfront hotel. Located in the heart of the Art Deco District, The Betsy puts you within a few blocks of the Art Deco Welcome Center and about a mile from the Bass Museum of Art.

Artsy shops await
You can stroll out your door to linger at nearby fashion boutiques or travel half a mile to the Lincoln Road Mall for brands like Lacoste. Outdoor enthusiasts can swing for the greens at Miami Beach Golf Club, 2 miles away, or stay on site for the intimate courtyard pool.

Rooftop amenities
Pampering is the byword at the rooftop Wellness Garden and Spa, which has incredible views of the Atlantic. For dinner, you can savor a perfectly cooked steak at onsite BLT Steak, a guest favorite. And the speakeasy-style B Bar could be the coolest place in town.

Luxe linens, free WiFi
After a day at the beach, you'll find modern and indulgent guestrooms with Frette bed linens and marble bathrooms with built-in flat-screen TVs. Minibars are handy for an afternoon pick-me-up or a nightcap while you check your email with free WiFi.

Perfect Ocean Drive Hotel
The Betsy has a brilliant position facing the beach but not too busy. The hotel has a n excellent lobby bar that was always busy with cool music and a good vibe. facilities all in great shape. You can see this is a hotel that is loved by its owners

Very Good8.0
amazing south beach stay
Great location, The Betsy proved to be a great choice. The concierge, Omar arranged a bottle of bubbly and strawberries for our arrival as it was our anniversary, he deserves five stars. Overall the hotel was great, room size was not the best, the wardrobe was in the bathroom? On our second day we were enjoying the roof top pool but was told without warning (it was news to the pool staff) that due to a private party the pool was closing in ' ten minutes' this was 5pm and there was a good few hours of drinking in the sun left, not a happy chap. Bar that, really liked the place would certainly keep an eye out for a deal at The Betsy next time I'm in Miami.

The Betsy - South Beach
Stayed at the Betsy for 4 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff and very well run. Rooms are pretty small......but you kind of expect that from the old hotels on Ocean Drive. Very comfortable and very clean.

The Betsy - South Beach
Luxury hotel with character
We have been very priviliged to travel the world (business and pleasure) and seen quite a few hotels in this standard. We both left The Betsy, happily surprised how much characted a luxury hotel can have. The staff was exceptional, the room was exceptional, the facilities and location - even better! Regardless if we asked for the best night club to visit, the most local spot to eat or landmarks to visit the short period we were in Miami - the employees gave us the best recommondations a traveler could ask for. We can't point on one specific thing they did differently, but next time we go back to Miami (or friends or our's do) this is without a doubt the place we will stay.
