Inspired by his father, who was a Pulitzer finalist in poetry, and with a passion for the arts and philanthropy himself, Jonathan Plutzik left a successful career in finance to become an hotelier, purchasing the historical Betsy Hotel a decade ago. Considered one of the world’s great literary arts hotels, it’s the only Miami hotel run on the PACE business model: Philanthropy, Arts, Culture & Education. Brought up in a home that embraced and valued creativity, the “Writer’s Room” at The Betsy is Plutzik’s ode to his childhood and a haven for literary leaders, writers, artists, poets and the public looking to rest their weary heads and dream of their magnum opus; TheBetsyHotel.com.
