  • It's a dreamy, vintage-glam resort hotel with over 25,000 sq. ft of event space in the heart of South Beach. Ultra-stylish, with a unique commitment to promoting the arts, The Betsy features "curated soundscapes" throughout the property and installations by cutting-edge visual artists.
  • You'll love the sweeping Atlantic views from the Oceanfront and Skyline Decks, and the dramatic cityscape panorama from the Rooftop Pool Deck. For a versatile open-air option, opt for the vast, tentable Atrium, outfitted with modern architecture, lush palm fronds, and a canopy of bistro lights. Indoor venues include the sleek, sophisticated Gallery, and the inviting intimacy of the subterranean B Bar.
  • Guests will love the accommodations, which feature light, airy interiors, patios overlooking the Art Deco District or Atrium, luxury Malin+Goetz bath products, and curated libraries.
