Sun Worship by Day, Stargaze by Night on The Betsy Hotel Rooftop

The Deck Now Open for Private Events at South Beach Luxury Boutique Hotel on Ocean Drive

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Daydream while in your lounge chair, and gaze into the azure hues of the Atlantic while watching ships pass in view on the horizon. Actually, while atop The Betsy hotel in South Beach, it doesn't take much to imagine you're on a ship's deck at sea. The Deck at The Betsy, with its retractable sails and other inventive nautical elements, creates a distinctive impression. An expansive space accessorized with natural wood elements, comfortable chaises, and cozy lounge and seating areas fit for small groups, The Deck is ideal for hotel guests seeking solitude on Ocean Drive, or a perfect setting for private events, small or large.

At daybreak, head up to The Deck and find a serenity to practice your yoga. As the day moves on, you may tuck into a shaded corner with the New York Times or a book from your Betsy Room Library. Alternatively you may choose to worship the sun, adding a personalized touch to the hotel's luxury amenities with attendants delivering chilled face towels and cooling cucumber rounds to protect your eyes from the sun. Hotel guests can enjoy light and refreshing cocktails: gently muddled with guava or passion fruit, sweet nectars and flavored vodkas, all come together to add a distinct high note to the delicious beverages, topped off with locally grown herb garnishes. By dusk, discerning visitors can sit back, relax and watch South Beach neon emerge from a private perch above the fray. The Deck is a perfect place to kick off the night with a casually refined ambience transitioning at nightfall into a starry lounge-like setting.

The Deck is a perfect retreat for wedding or birthday celebrations, daytime social gatherings, or intimate cocktail receptions under the moonlight, available for private events accommodating from 20 to 200. For more information about events, please contact or visit
