The Betsy South Beach

The Betsy South Beach

Miami Beach

Built in 1942.

The Betsy, located in the Art Deco district of South Beach, is a boutique hotel with 155 rooms and a rooftop swimming pool and bar with panoramic views. Originally named The Betsy Ross Hotel, Art Deco leader L. Murray Dixon built the hotel in 1940. It first housed military troops during World War II. The original Colonial-style wing stands are the only example of Florida-Georgian architecture in South Beach. During a recent revitalization, a giant beach-ball-looking passageway, called "The Orb," was added to connect The Betsy to the historic, former Carlton Hotel, which was purchased to expand The Betsy. The hotel's brand is built around PACE – philanthropy, arts, culture and education. The historic, five-star hotel manages cultural events and celebrates creativity.
