Designed to provide a luxurious beachfront haven across from Lummus Park, the newly renovated Betsy Hotel is now one of the top rated properties on Ocean Drive. With just 63 guest rooms and suites, the Betsy’s elegant and tropical interiors are classic and casual combining the traditions of a beach club with the technology modern travelers desire. While South Beach might court a reputation as a Spring Break destination, the Betsy attracts a decidedly grown up clientele who appreciate the upscale interior design, state of the art audio and video connectivity, precision lighting controls and built in LCD-TVs within the bath mirrors. Bedding of the finest Frette linens and luxurious marble baths with rain shower heads make a visit to the Betsy a pampering experience.
Plenty of Ocean Drive Hotels promise to keep you in the heart of the party scene, but the Betsy provides a tropical oasis that is close enough to walk to the action but feels a million miles away from the glitz and the noise. Rooms feature louvered plantation-style shutters with pool, city and ocean views. The Master, Royal and Grand Suites have separate lounge areas, mini bars, spacious walk-in showers and custom poster beds. A rooftop spa and wellness garden offers a full range of pampering treatments with panoramic views of the sea. The roof deck caters to sunbathers by day and becomes a candlelit retreat with soft music and plenty of room to see the stars for a perfectly romantic escape.
The Betsy’s secluded pool area sits just off the courtyard at ground level providing a quiet place to read a book, enjoy the sun or take an afternoon nap. The beach is just across the street from the hotel and sits in full view of the front porch where guests can enjoy the culinary stylings of Chef Laurent Tourondel’s BLTSteak or a classic cocktail at sunset. The Betsy fitness center has a complete line of cardio equipment, a weight training area and complimentary headphones connected to integrated televisions. Perfect for work, rest or play, the Betsy’s Florida Georgian architecture stands as a landmark to a bygone era of grace and refinement. Timeless, classic and thoroughly modern, the Betsy is the top luxury boutique hotel on Ocean Drive.
