About The Betsy – South Beach

The Betsy-South Beach is a landmark luxury hotel located in the heart of South Beach. Great amenities, incredible ocean views, world-class cuisine, and a unique presence for art and culture are all part of a Betsy stay. While located on the north end of Ocean Drive, The Betsy is within walking distance to shopping, culture and nightlife, and offers a uniquely serene experience, beachfront. The Betsy has just completed an expansion that includes 132 rooms, a new 3200 sq foot pool area located five stories above the ocean - and two eateries:  LT Steak and Seafood and The Alley (serving Italian artisan pizza and pasta). 

The Betsy's A Cappella Festival was created under the auspices of the Hotel's robust corporate community responsibility program, led by Deborah Plutzik Briggs, in partnership with the PG Family Foundation.  Among The Betsy's other keystone arts programs is The Writers Room (, an artist in residence program that has welcomed over 550 visiting creatives (including ACA Festival Experts) since its founding in 2012.
