General
Located on South Beach's most prestigious boulevard, the hotel affords easy access to vibrant nightlife, dining and shopping.  Guests can unwind at the garden pool or visit the ocean deck wellness garden for massages in the open air. An in-house fitness center provides free headphones, weight and cardio machines, chilled towels and a yoga and stretching area. For prime steaks, seafood and chicken served with French finesse, book a table at BLT Steak, a bistro that charms with good steaks and stylish ambiance.
Location

Named for Betsy Ross, this Ocean Drive hotel is a standout among South Beach's many Art Deco hotels and winner of prestigious 4 Star Forbes Plaque. The boutique hotel's colonial design was a departure for architect L. Murray Dixon who designed other notable hotels in the area. Today's Betsy merges tradition and technology. Outside, find a white plantation façade complete with wooden shutters. Inside, behold 21st century amenities such as bath mirrors with built-in LCD TV and Bose sound and rainfall showerheads. The lobby's BLT Steak, a modern American chophouse and bistro, is a magnet for foodies.

Mirrors have built-in LCD TVs and Bose sound systems.  Kallista de Stile shower wands and rain forest shower-heads promote relaxation. Wi-Fi is included in the resort fee.

Business trip

I arrived late Friday and left early Sunday and was gone on business most of Saturday. Room and bath were very clean and well appointed but "smallish." Staff friendly and helpful. In room bar and snacks were varied and nice but expensive as they always are. Refrigerator locked for some reason upon my return Saturday after long day when I wanted a quick cold one -- aggravating. If you like TV there are 2 nice ones, 1 in bath. Room service breakfast was excellent quality and timely but the earliest serving at 8:15 is late if you need to be somewhere. I'd go back. It's not inexpensive but hey its on South Beach and a higher end hotel.

Excellent!!!!

BLT restaurant is an outstanding complementation for The Betsy. If I did not have to go to other restaurants I would not have a problem to have all my meals there. The beach service is as good as you would expect. Last but not least, the hotel staff is outstanding.

Two excellent Italian restaurants: Osteria del Teatro ($$$) and Tua Casa ($$$$). But don't miss BLT Steak at the hotel Lobby.
