I booked this hotel because all other hotels, close to the conference,were booked out. When we arrived I realized it was at the centre of all the noise, hustle and bustle of Miami South Beach. Great for my son, I thought, not so great for me. On arrival the front staff were very friendly and helpful and remained like that... More

I have special fond memories of the Beacon Hotel and the South Miami Beach, FL. With my parents, in the 1960's, we stayed in the Beacon. It was there that I was introduced to the hotel business by a kind housekeeping woman. She, I do not know her name, asked me if I would like to learn how to make... More

When I booked this hotel I was a bit worried about the noise, as it is right in Ocean Drive, so I asked for a quite room, and they gave us 2 rooms at 5th floor. I have to admit that it was really quite, we didn't hear any music. The only problem was a fan right outside the window,... More

We checked into the hotel and everyone was very friendly. The location was perfect! And they offered a good breakfast however, we stayed there for 3 nights and had breakfast 3 times at the hotel restaurant and each time we found hair on the plate. When we told the staff they did not even apologize for it. I know it... More

This was my first trip to South Beach. The iconic hotel has been masterfully updated. Our room was art deco style, comfortable beds, great room service, and new flat screen TV. The valet parking was very reasonable at just $20/day and they had your car to you in 15 minutes. But just walk out the door and you arte in... More

The Beacon still has much of its Art Deco heritage in the foyer - fine floor, mezzanine layout, stair furniture, curved bar - it's just a bit of a shame, to my eye, that someone has gone a bit Dali-esque with the furnishings. As a hotel it gets the fundamental things right - comfy beds, pristine bed-linen, abundant hot water... More

This was a really great place to stay. The location was perfect. The hotel was very clean. The bathroom was small. Not a lot of space to put your stuff in the bathroom, but I wouldn't expect much more from a place that is right on Ocean Drive and is an older building. The staff were friendly and very accommodating.... More

My teenage children and I stayed 2 nights here. Unfortunately it was the start of Spring Break and the streets were absolutely packed. This is definitely a party area. The room we were in was very small and the bathroom tiny; no room to hang towels; no proper vanity area. The grout looked old. The room had two beds on... More

No surprises. As advertised, the Beacon is an art deco boutique hotel right in the "District". Location is simply Vibrant! If you've never visited South Beach - across the street from the hotel is much more than the Beach. Paths and walkways for jogging, biking (rentals too), dog walking, strolling, people are playing volleyball, working out - You name it... More

I recently took my family to Miami FL for our annual vacation. Being a proud father of 4 boys I am constantly reminded that each vacation MUST top last years. I take this to heart when deciding a location as well as where to stay once we get there. This years trip took us to sunny Miami at what I... More
