One of the best boutique properties on Ocean Drive, The Betsy Hotel’s 63 beachfront guest rooms offer a quiet, tasteful retreat in the heart of the world’s most exciting city. South Beach may specialize in glitz and glamour, but the Betsy Hotel relies on a quiet quality designed to soothe and pamper every guest. With high tech appointments, fresh orchids and luxurious marble baths, each room is tastefully decorated with hardwood floors, Frette linens and LCD TVs with BOSE audio. Specialty suites with city or pool views include a separate lounge area, a classic colonial design and – at the top level – sweeping Atlantic views.
Perhaps one of the best amenities a hotel can offer is a dedicated kitchen staff who exceed expectations at every meal. Award winning Chef Laurent Tourondel received accolades from both Bon Appetit and Food & Wine Magazine for his exemplary dining room BLT Steak. Lauded in Esquire, Travel + Leisure and Saveur, the accessible menus and casual comfortable dining work seamlessly with the Betsy’s aesthetic and the South Florida lifestyle. The Lobby Bar and the posh speakeasy B Bar offer classic cocktails, fine wines and a weekly live jazz program that just might be the most fun you can have on a Thursday night.
Secluded in a shady courtyard, the hotel pool is an ideal spot for a quiet read, a quick nap or an invigorating splash. On the rooftop level, guests discover the spa and wellness garden where a panoramic view of the city and the sea sets the stage for a massage, a spa treatment or a day in the sun. Surrounded by swaying palms and canvas market umbrellas, the roof deck concierge offers tea, organic beverages and chilled towels to help you relax. The Betsy staff can also furnish a picnic lunch with snacks, wine and the latest magazines to make your day at the beach as luxurious as the rest of your stay. Chic and sophisticated, the Betsy is your perfect South Beach pied-à-terre.
