MIAMI BEACH - The Betsy Hotel will reopen this March on famed Ocean Drive in South Beach. The hotel, once known as The Betsy Ross, is a rare colonial revival gem, finished in 1942 and designed by architect L. Murray Dixon. The total renovation retains the elegant Florida Georgian façade and details like original terrazzo floors. In conjunction with the award winning Miami architectural firm of Beilinson-Gomez, who have successfully restored 22 hotels in South Beach, interior designers Diamante Pedersoli and Carmelina Santoro designed the interior. Diamante’s work includes creating private residences for Ralph Lauren, while Carmelina’s experience with Bulgari retail stores fuse two different visions, culminating in elegant yet relaxed design.

“Our goal is to make The Betsy at once completely comfortable and familiar, yet create an undeniable mark which would make The Betsy standout from other hotels in Miami Beach,” said Pedersoli in a press release. Each Betsy Hotel’s 63 rooms and suites offer an “airy sanctuary achieved with crisp white rooms accentuated by one of four different nature-inspired color schemes: fields of lavender in Provence, sunbathed Tuscan ochre, vibrant red coral, and fresh Spring green. For additional texture, Raffia covered ceilings, headboards and chairs lend an additional air of refinement and grace to every room.”
