The Betsy

Javier Sanchez
South Beach

Done up in grand old Florida-Georgian style, the hotel is a rare South Beach boutique option with just 61 rooms. Twelve of them, including four suites, face the ocean, which would be ideal—except the hotel’s Ocean Drive location (just south of the Collins Avenue hotel row) can be noisy. For something quieter, choose a room facing the courtyard and pool. Beach access is across the street. (Rooms, from $450)
