A day of travel is like nothing else in the world. What can The Betsy offer?
The Betsy — South Beach has been a staple of the Ocean Drive skyline for more than seven decades. Located in the Art Deco district, about half a block from the northern end of the strip, this Miami hotel has stood the test of time and continues to attract visitors from all over the world. The Betsy is the only example of Florida-Georgian architecture in the area, which is a subset of historic southern architecture that was mostly found in Florida and Georgia. It was originally designed by L. Murray Dixon back in 1941. Dixon’s work can be seen at The Tides Hotel and Raleigh Hotel, both known for their art deco design.
This hotel, known for its literary bent, recently merged with the historic Carlton Hotel on Collins Avenue, an effort that included a multi-million-dollar renovation. The breathtaking hotel that has been designed to be a prestigious and magnificent masterpiece offers 130 luxurious guest rooms and suites, restaurants by respected Laurent Tourondel, and an expansive rooftop pool complex.
Thoughtful and well-designed public spaces are welcoming places that offer guests lots to do. The hotel provides the opportunity for guests to take in many cultural offerings, including live jazz seven nights a week and curated playlists on property-wide music. On any given day, you’re sure to find a thoroughly insightful lineup of other cultural events, ranging from poetry readings to literary festivals, book signings, and artist visits. This includes a variety of different art forms including drama and music. The Betsy has its own exhibitions that are currently on display throughout the lobby, hallways, and stairs. Anyone with an opinion on art can take a look and enjoy these works of art. The Writer’s Room is also a popular spot for artists who are looking to get away from their daily lives and focus on their work in a productive and focused way.
For a truly tropical escape with all the modern amenities and quality accommodations, you will absolutely love what you find inside this luxurious resort. The hotel offers an all-day fitness center with a Peloton bike, a spa service with massage treatments and facials, lobby and pool bars, libraries, and a Carlton room that features coffee and tea. The Betsy is a stunning venue that has more than 25,000 square feet of space and can accommodate various event needs. The Betsy can accommodate groups of 10-1,500 guests, as well as corporate events, conferences, weddings, and other social functions.
