I stayed at The Betsy for 6 days and 5 nights in August and it was a great experience. All of the staff were welcoming, helpful, friendly, and attentive. All of the meals I had were delicious and had generous portions. The beach is right across the street and there is a quiet courtyard pool on the main floor that I enjoyed each day. There is also a rooftop pool but it is smaller and had less space to swim. I would have like if they had more staff on the rooftop to tend to patrons. Housekeeping did a fantastic job at n my asking sure you always had enough of everything and I really appreciated the turn down service in the evening. Overall, it a beautiful and classy place in a prime location. A special thank you to Fritz, Juan, and Antonio for their hospitality!

The rooms are small but that was expected. The live piano playing in the lobby was great. We have to shout the excellent service we received from Fritz. He is the main reason we will be staying at The Betsy the next time we visit Miami.

Charming hotel at the northern end of Ocean Drive, perfectly situated between the frenzy of Art Deco hotels, clubs and alfresco dining to one side, with the more somber atmosphere of larger scale properties on the other side. The hotel was expanded to annex The Carlton Hotel which sits behind the ocean facing property, connected by an art installation Orb between the two buildings. Service is bright and welcoming, though on my visit it the hotel was brimming with guests. Hallways and public areas are adorned with art (most for sale) and it feels chic and lively. The room was decently furnished and in my case a corner with views of Collins Avenue (situated in the Carlton part of the hotel). Breakfast is a simple a la carte with a variety of options. I wasn’t told at check-in about breakfast being included, I only remembered when I looked at my itinerary. Nor was I told about a complimentary tour, or offered an upgrade being an Expedia Gold member. Sufficed to say I didn’t feel the Gold recognition, but I was happy with the room and all round experience. The pool deck is lovely, especially during golden hour. The courtyard pool looked good and deeper than the pool deck, but I didn’t have the time to try it out. Car valet is $48 per night and takes about 20 minutes to retrieve the car from request.
