Beacon is in a great location close to the beach. The free breakfast is buffets style, doesn't change at all but no complaints as it was tasty and substantial. Rooms are compact but beds comfy, bathroom tiny and could have benefited from a fan or window that opened. Staff were polite and helpful main gripe was that room was serviced... More

Decent hotel but not a 4 star as advertised. The poor staff is overrun and understaffed. Beware- there is No pool (which doesn't seem possible in Miami) and I can hear the family in the room above us. I can hear them Very Well. Better deals to be had in the city.

Great location, awesome staff and location. Made to order breakfast was a nice surprise as was the wonderful service! Free beach towels and chairs are in your room which saves you some $'s. We had a lovely corner ocean view room that was perfect and pretty good size for a "boutique" hotel. We can't wait to go back!

Pros: Location was excellent-beach is directly across from the hotel. Staff was polite and friendly. Keeping in mind this is a boutique hotel (everything is tiny); this was a comfy hotel. Added bonus was having free breakfast from 9am-11am; access to beach chairs/towels (which saves you rental fee of $20 on the beach). Cons: **Restaurant staff (outside of the hotel)... More

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at the Beacon Hotel in South Beach, and I wrote them a note before we came that it was his 39th so could we have an ocean view view. Not only did they give us that, but when we came into our room, they had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for... More

I start by saying this hotel was right on Ocean drive and had a great atmosphere. Opposite to the beach and near all the bars and restaurants. I was sharing with my dad and we also had a few meetings while we were in Miami. While the room was fine it did not have a desk which made working impossible... More

I have never really stayed at "boutique" hotel before this trip. On this particular trip, I ended up staying at 3 of them! Boutique seems to mean small, unique, and probably converted from an older building or from a building that was not really a hotel to start (like the Versace Mansion down the street). It also means interesting, homey,... More

All at your doorstep. - staff were very nice and helpful and Ben have my daughter some toys to play with on the beach - good wifi... More

Everyone was very friendly and helpful unlike some of our other experiences in South Beach. Very good breakfast and great location, The room ok -it's not the Ritz but worth the price. Ocean view nice but noisy.
