The Betsy—South Beach

1440 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, USA

After a two-year expansion, the original Betsy Ross Hotel (now christened the "Colonial" wing) has been joined with what was the neighboring, historic Carlton Hotel to create a retro-chic, art deco treasure that delivers the full-throttle South Beach experience with style, pizzazz, and cultural twist. Year-round cultural programs include poetry readings, live jazz, and art shows. The front porch and outdoor eating space along Ocean Drive are perfect for quintessential SoBe people-watching. The lobby, which remains in the original Colonial wing, is busy, but not insanely so, and cultivates a social, trendy scene, especially in the evenings. The guest rooms of The Besty 2.0 embody a color palette of white and ocean-blue tones with pops of green. Enjoy time at the rooftop pool deck, and consider dining at the hotel's two excellent restaurants by chef Laurent Tourondel, surf-and-turf favorite LT Steak & Seafood at The Betsy and Italian-trattoria-inspired Poeti.
