Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Among the neon-lit Art Deco hotels lining Miami’s famous Ocean Drive, The Betsy stands out with its stately Florida-Georgian columns and plantation-style façade. The AAA 4-Diamond hotel first opened in 1942 and is a historical landmark; renovations completed in December 2016 filled the property with luxurious modern amenities like black-walnut hardwood floors, Italian linens, marble bathrooms with LCD TVs built into mirrors and Bose surround sound.

Guest rooms offer the choice of one king or two double beds and have in-room libraries, Malin + Goetz bath amenities and are decorated with original artwork and large windows covered by plantation shutters. Upgraded rooms are larger and face the pool or beach; some also feature balconies. Suites have private bedrooms and living rooms with sofa beds. The wrap-around terrace in the penthouse suite looks out at city skyline and beach. All stays include continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi.

The renovations added a rooftop pool complex with 360-degree views, a spa and BLT Steak & Seafood restaurant. Year-round cultural programs include poetry readings, live jazz, and art shows. Guests can also find respite in the Library, brimming with beautiful books and featuring a well-stocked bar.
