Stately colonial hotel in a comparatively tranquil location on Ocean Drive at 14th Street in South Beach. Full review →



Sixty-three rooms and suites decked out with wi-fi, iPod docks, huge flatscreens and TVs built into the mirrors in the louve.



Situated on the quieter northern end of South Beach's raucous Ocean Drive, the Betsy Hotel is, in many ways, a fish out of water—picture a Southern belle surrounded by Art Deco divas.
