The Betsy Hotel Review

An art deco treasure elegantly refurbished and totally retro-chic, The Betsy sits directly on world-famous Ocean Drive and delivers the full-throttle South Beach experience with style and pizzazz. The front porch and outdoor eating space are perfect for quintessential SoBe people-watching. The lobby is busy, but not insanely so, and cultivates a social, trendy scene, especially in the evenings. White and flowery rooms are cozy and comfortable, with a vintage-luxe vibe that recalls South Beach of the 1950s. Though the pool gets little sunshine because of its odd location in the hotel courtyard, the expansive rooftop sun lounge and sumptuous beach club across Ocean Drive make up for this shortcoming. The hotel's BLT Steak restaurant is excellent.
