Made a short visit to Miami and chose this hotel from Trip Advisor - and it did not disappoint! Right in the very heart of things this hotel is quintessentially the very idea of Art Deco. Very well placed on the strip of South Beach for nightlife and just a short walk from Lincoln Road where shopping and eating is... More

This hotel is located right on the South Beach strip and it is a very busy strip. Breakfast is included and it's great continental breakfast. The room is very nice and clean but the only drawback is that it is not roomy. The space is compacted especially the bathroom. Well, one has to compromise if one wants to stay right... More

The Beacon is a nice art deco hotel, which is right in the middle of everything. Staff is friendly, rooms and lobby were renovated and very clean. The included breakfast buffet is basic. There are free beach chairs in every room which you can take to the beach and you will receive fresh beach towels every day, which is a... More

This is my second time staying at the Beacon Hotel in Miami, and I must say that both experiences have been great. The service is exceptional, which keeps me going back. Julio did a great job at making sure that my guest and I had whatever we needed, which made our stay that much better. You get what you pay... More

Gus, the man at the desk from day and overnight had to have been one of the more genuine people I've met. We were in the mist of having our flight cancelled back to boston due to a hurricane warning and he was already planning out accommodations in case of it. I will continually come back here, and I'm a... More

We had a great time. The hotel is right on the Main Street ocean drive. This was our first time on South Beach and me loved everything about this place. The food was great but very very expensive. We will be back next year. The lounge was very nice and clean. I love the decor orange and white chairs.

Had another great stay at The Beacon. This time I was traveling with my husband who was a first timer to South Beach. We walked in without a reservation and decided to upgrade to the Suite facing the beach. We were not disappointed! What a great view. and The Beacon offered great service from everyone including the Front Desk, Servers... More

This hotel makes a stay on South Beach special. The hotel's web-site tells you what they offer but the staff and the service is what we totally enjoyed. Yes, they include breakfast and it is exceptional, the beach chairs and towels are provided in every guest room, the rooms are especially clean and well stocked, the staff is very professional....

First time in Miami and I decided to stay at Beacon Hotel. Very affordable and right on the strip of all the action. My cousin and I shared a double bed room. The rooms are fairly small as well as the bathroom. Best part of the stay was the complimentary breakfast. Buffett style: eggs (scrambled or boiled, bacon, sausage, toast,... More

The hotel is very cute. Right in the middle of all the action on Ocean Dr. However the room was somewhat disappointing. Very small, lighting in the room and bathroom was awful for trying to get ready and do make up! But we made it work. Restaurant was nice. Everyone one of the hotel staff encountered were very nice and... More
