10.0 Wonderful
Loved the live piano and jazz music at lobby area. Enjoyed music throughout hotel and art displayed. Rooftop pool was very peaceful.
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:The staff - amazing - every single interaction was a delight
8.0 Very good
Pros:The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and took their time to provide information and services. The food at the hotel restaurant was one phenomenally delicious.
Cons:The decorative bed pillows were dirty and the maintainence people interrupted our stay at least three different times. Lastly the only elevator was small and extremely slow.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The white exterior w/ the front porch is welcoming and classy Polished staff workers w/ smiles Excellent concierge service from both Monique and Paul Artwork, the rock and roll theme Our Room #305 - just gorgeous The Roof - what's not to love. My fiance and I used it together and when he napped in the room one day, it was a perfect refuge for me to have some alone time. BLT Accessibility to Starbucks and the beach. Loved being "across" from the beach vs. directly on it. Your location is very nice.
Cons:I do wish we could have a waiver for the resort and valet fees. Other hotels (The Tides) were giving what they call a summer Florida resident rate that also provided free valet and no resort fee. Plus, your pool was under construction. Nevertheless, we decided to pay the extra because The Betsy had the appeal we were looking for.
9.6 Wonderful
Pros:Top side deck was very relaxing and had a great view. Hotel room was extremely comfortable, especially the bed. Love the books they have all over the place.
