The hotel is in an amazing location on the strip, opposite the beach. In recognition of that and with the hotel being Art Deco, the rooms are small and the bathrooms are very small. However you aren't staying there for large bathrooms and rooms, it's the location. That said, the rooms are very nice and well decorated and furnished. Plenty... More

So we accidentally missed our connection in Miami and ended up staying at the Beacon overnight to be close to the beach while we waited for our next flight. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating after arriving very late, giving us a little more time on check out, still letting us borrow beach towels and chairs after we checked... More

My friends and I had a great stay here for 4 days. The hotel is right in the middle of all the action. If you want to really experience South Beach. . This is the place. The food and drinks were plentiful and good. The free breakfast was a great bonus and it was from 9-11. The staff was very... More

Good location on the Ocean Drive, but be aware that the party factor is high in this street. Although booking a premium room, we were placed in what appears to be the smallest room on the fifth floor. We have yet to see the daily complementary cocktails promised in the booking.

I stayed at the Beacon the weekend of June 19th. I will start by saying they have the best staff I have ever encountered. The wait staff at restaurant were awesome and the food was great as well. The room was sufficient and the hotel is centrally located. One con that I have to report is that my credit card... More

Found this hotel by reading reviews on tripadvisor as we wanted to stay central in South Beach, with walking distance up and down Ocean Drive. It only takes a few minutes to walk each block, so when looking at map location I initially thought it was way down the strip and miles away from 'everything'.Really glad I booked as it... More

Every thing was great. The entire staff takes excellent care of their customers. They were very polite and helpful. If we needed anything from beach towels to leaving our luggage to walk around before and after check in- we were accommodated. They serve complimentary breakfast which is wonderful. They are also in walking distance to everything on the strip on... More

This Beacon is in a wonderful location. The staff and service are over the top. From the time that I made the reservation and checked out everything was perfect. The rooms were clean, the staff went above and over the top to make sure that my stay was enjoyable and comfortable. I was in the center location for the things... More

We liked the central position of the hotel - although a very old building, everything was very well maintained. The room was big enough and comfortable. The wifi connection was good. The bed was comfortable. We liked very much that they offered complementary beach towels and chairs to use while staying at the hotel. There was free coffee in the... More
