I stayed here in early February for one night pre-cruise. I had always wanted to stay on South Beach in one of the old Art Deco hotels right across from the beach. The Beacon Hotel was selected because it met my price range, location and style. I was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and the room, although very... More

This trendy hotel was in the heart of trendy south beach. They allowed us to check in well before the official check in time and the staff was wonderful. This was the first time I had been to this area and found it to be very different from anything I've experienced before. The boutique style hotel housed very comfortable beds... More

These people treated me like family! Everybody from the front desk to the bellman to the valet. I am a concierge from the Intercontinental Times Square in Manhattan and I know what amazing service is. They exemplified amazing hospitality and there is no where in South Beach I would rather stay. Clean rooms, amazing location, comfortable beds. I GIVE IT... More

Great boutique hotel, located across the street from the beach with all the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive. The room was very comfortable and clean-and quiet! Free breakfast which was better than most free breakfasts that I have experienced. It was an excellent choice!

First time experiencing South Beach. This retro hotel is right in the heart of the action. The decor is really unique and the rooms are quite charming. Our room was not huge but more than enough space for our one night stay. We had come early off a cruise and had a room by 11 am - it was very... More

Myself and my friends were taking a cruise for Halloween and I decide to take my sister down a day early. I decided to use hoteltonight app and book a room at the Beacon. What an excellent choice. It was right on the strip. Once I was booked I called to request double beds. When we arrived it was early... More

Very nice clean hotel. The staff was great, from check in, to bell service. House keeping brought up anything we needed within minutes of asking. We had a room with an ocean view which could get a little noisy at night and early morning, so if you want a really quiet room get a room in the back, but then... More

If you're a tourist then this hotel ticks the boxes. Great location on South Beach, with loads of restaurant options. For a business traveller this hotel doesn't cut it. Too noisy in nearby rooms at night and the trash lorry rolled up at 6am. One morning an industrial generator started up at about 4.30am in the alley by my window.... More

This hotel is nothing special for South Beach. The elevator is probably a hundred years old with max occupancy of 4, though I doubt 3 people could fit in it. It takes forever. The bathroom is like 4x6. It's poorly designed. Sink, toilet shower, in that order, with each on top of one another. The shower head is on same... More
