A perfect spot at the quieter end of ocean drive, this is an 'old school' cozy boutique hotel. No loud music or loud kids! But a lovely atmosphere, the BLT restaurant is excellent, and all the hotel staff are friendly and efficient. We stayed on our way down to the keys, and had a minor problem with our room, but...

Charming and cozy boutique hotel on the quiet end of South Beache's otherwise manic Ocean Blvd. Rooms, food, amenities and beautiful beach right across street make this a perfect long weekend getaway!

It's in the perfect spot if you want to stay in South Beach, near enough to everything, but at the quieter end of Ocean Drive. Liked the roof top terrace, but they did keep having events up there which meant it wasn't as peaceful as it was normally. The rooms aren't the biggest, neither are they the most luxurious, but...

My wife and I stayed at the Betsy and had great service from courteous and attentive staff throughout. This hotel is old school where service and quality are the priority. The small lift is indicative of the hotels age but the roof terrace is fantastic. The location is ideal for either a stroll on the beach or a walk around... More

Booked this through another website that I use and I have to say that I was most impressed by the Betsy Hotel. The staff are excellent. I was there with my 7 month pregnant wife and they were all over her requirements. The concierge's (x3) were all top notch. If you stay here use them. We ate in the steak... More

The Betsy was exactly what we were looking for in South Beach - a charming, luxurious, small hotel located a step from the beach. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and eager to help. The rooms, though not large, are extremely comfortable with all sorts of extra touches. The roof terrace is lovely. My stay exceeded my expectations.

Great location and classy hotel. Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the room, bar and restaurant. Apart from the doormen, concierge and housekeeping the staff appear to be very unhappy and angry. Takes the shine right off ... pity, could be a brilliant place!

Not only is this the most beautiful hotel on Ocean Drive, the interior from the staff to the rooms are spectacular. It is tucked away on the north end of Ocean, but with the same beautiful view.

“While there was a nice Keurig machine, there is no frig so I would suggest filling the ice bucket the night before and putting in the 2 waters they leave complimentary so that you can have some nice cold water in the morning. The in-hotel free continental breakfast was great. I wish we had dinner at LT as I heard excellent things about it from our cousins who live in Coral Gables. ”
