The Setting
The Betsy South Beach is a beachfront beauty considered a ‘World’s Best’ by Travel + Leisure with one of the most exciting neighborhoods in America as its backyard. Its laid-back vibe echos South Beach as a whole: a winning blend of understated luxury, Art Deco inspiration, classy historicism, and beach-town bliss. You’ll love its infinity rooftop pool with 360-views suspended in mid-air, a happening nightly Jazz scene, and its big heart for art, culture, yoga, and furry friends. 

Its palpable heart of Kindness is impossible to ignore, with the brand’s mission residing in its PACE Program: an acronym signifying its dedication to, and support for, Philanthropy, the Arts, Culture, and Education.

PACE not only entails a host of programming at the hotel, but also engagement with the nonprofit sector and local community, as well as public art installations. Add multiple on-site eateries, stunning pools (both ground-level and a one-of-a-kind rooftop pool experience), plus creative social spaces (like a Writer’s Room and library), this place feels almost too good to be true. Maybe we were talking about heaven, after all?

Sleep and Sanctuary

Betsy’s 130 guestrooms, including 25 suites, are spread across its two wings: the original Dixon WIng and the newer Hohauser Wing Their understated elegance leaves you pampered while right at home, tucking you away in an ideal beachside haven. Enjoy natural wood accents, dark walnut floors, high-speed WiFi, MALIN+GOETZ bath products (made from botanical extracts), and curated guest libraries, if you forgot your own beach read at home. As the hotel’s wings were crafted by two different architects, expect distinctly different, though equally appealing, feels in each: classic Floridian in the original Dixon Wing (think wooden white shutters), and breezier beach vibes in the Art Deco Hohauser Wing. This also entails some differing amenities. The bathrooms, for example, are made of marble with walk-in glass showers and bathroom mirrors inlaid with LCD TV’s (yes, we did a double-take here too) in the Art Deco.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Chef Laurent Tourondel leads Betsy’s culinary dream team, spanning bars and restaurants throughout the hotel. His famed craft is based in the following purist philosophy that’s awarded him numerous accolades over the course of his career. Food preparation should be simple; service, efficient and Kind; and ingredients as fresh, high-quality, and locally-sourced as they can possibly come. Considering the Betsy's ethos, you can dine assured that Tourondel is both true to his word, and lives up to his hype. Bon appétit.
