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.

The Betsy - South Beach
Terrible experience; do not stay here!
This is the first time I’ve ever written a review in my life. I travel a lot for work and pleasure, and have never felt compelled to complain about a hotel before. However, in this instance, I felt it was warranted. We spent over $1800 for two nights, and expected a nice experience, and it was truly terrible. Starting with the room, the bed was tiny, when we booked a king; the sink was clogged and disgusting; and the service, even at check in, took forever. We waited more than 30 min at an empty bar just to order coffee. When we were literally never never even acknowledged, we asked for a table outside. We were put in the immediate sun with no shade, even though there were several empty shaded tables near us. Our waitresss was completely incompetent, and took about 20 min just to get us water. We heard several others staying at the hotel complaining about similar things, such as waiting approx 30 min just to check in. Overall, such a terrible experience. I will never stay at this hotel again, and would never recommend it to anyone.

Gorgeous hotel/restaurant but beware of NOISE.
Amazing hotel with incredible food and location... the only issue was the construction going on directly next door. We stayed in the Art Deco building (4th floor) and you will NOT be sleeping in past 7a. Even on a Saturday. Once that goes away the place will be perfect.

Would stay again but watch “service charges”
Great hotel in the heart of it all. Small but updated, stylishly decorated rooms with very comfy bed. Staff are very nice and professional. Beautiful amenities including rooftop pool, lounge, stunning view of the ocean. Restaurant is very good. Understand Miami Beach is expensive but the Betsy does nickel and dime on every little thing. Example- $30 Daily resort fee to use pool and for beach access then they charge you $20 for an umbrella for the day (or even an hour as we arrived at 3;30 and were told we only had until 5 pm but still had to pay $20 for use of an umbrella. By 4 beach captain was dragging and noisily stacking chairs to make sure we knew our time was running out. Also beware that restaurants in Miami Beach include 18-20% “service charge” (tip) on EVERYTHING but don’t all bring it to your attention verbally so we double-tipped several times. Other than that, this is a lovely hotel.

Such a lovely place to stay. Super classy and chic. The hotel didn't skimp on anything. Everything is high quality and it's just plane beautiful. The rooftop pool is so lovely. Service is impeccable and the location is prime. I would highly recommend this hotel.
