We got upgraded to a fantastic ocean-front room. From check-in to check-out was great. Everyone super friendly, especially Evens and Fritz. We had a small hiccup with room service our first day but it was comped and we got a free bottle of Prosecco. We appreciated that. Would stay here again.

We have stayed at the Betsy Hotel in Miami on 4 different occasions and each stay has been as wonderful as the last. The Betsy is a true gem in the heart of South Beach - ideal location on Ocean Drive however removed from the typical South Beach craziness. The food at LT is fabulous and the service throughout the hotel is wonderful. Gustavo at the rooftop pool is warm, friendly and accommodating; we look forward to seeing and chatting with him during each of our visits! Carmen was also a fantastic bartender! Juan at the concierge was helpful upon our arrival and departure. Also, if you love dogs - the Betsy has two Canine Executive Officers, Betsy and Rosa that you may spot during your stay! The hotel is also pet friendly. Highly recommend the Betsy Hotel and would not stay anywhere else in Miami!
