Location, location, location! The location is superb. Good rooms with great beds, slept like a baby. Since it's on Ocean Drive the street can be a bit loud, especially around spring break. If this hotel had a rooftop pool or bar with some chairs it would be a 5. Very friendly and helpful staff as well.

Many trips to South Beach, but first time staying at the Beacon. Can't beat the location and the staff was friendly and very helpful. When I checked in I had been delayed by a road closure and was a bit frazzled. They offered me a glass of cold water and asked if I needed assistance with my suitcase. They could... More

I stayed at the Beacon with several friends and family during the height of Spring Break. Even though The Beacon is located in a very busy part of South Beach, we could step away from the crowds into the most comfortable accommodations both in the general areas and our rooms. We really enjoyed the décor of The Beacon and appreciated... More

Hi, I chose this hotel because it was very good rated in Trip Advisor and I would like to confirm every good comment posted here. Due to lack of availability, I had to choose and pay for what they call "accessible room", which was not fancy at all and it had a view to the service stairs. While I understand... More

We stayed at the Beacon Miami Beach for one night on March 15, 2015. We had the a room with two double beds. Overall this hotel is in the middle of many restaurants and other hotels right on Ocean Drive. It is expensive --we paid over $350 for one night...but the hotel was clean and the service was great. We... More

Such a cute boutique hotel , the beacon is in the perfect location and everything is in walking distance! The hotel staff was great and very attentive. Only negative is the room size but my friends and I were in south beach for spring break and didn't spend much time in the room. The hotel restaurant had great food snd... More

If your goal is to stay in the heart of South Beach in an art deco historic hotel for a reasonable price, then this is an excellent choice. Valet parking is really the only option unless you want a long walk from a self-park garage, as street parking is limited (availability and time limits). The photos of the hotel are... More

Hotel is very clean, has the perfect location on south beach, and above all else the staff is incredible. They go above and beyond to give you everything you need plus more. Added bonus: They provide beach chairs and towels for the beach and complimentary breakfast which was surprisingly delicious. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again.
