“Gorgeous hotel, great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

First time in Miami, loved this hotel. The location was amazing- South Beach is straight across the road.
Had a few problems with the bathroom and these were sorted instantly. Staff were really helpful and never too busy to help.
Room was clean and spacious, and our towels were raplaced every day. Nice touch offering beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for the beach! We were even offered towels and a cup of tea after we returned soaking from a tropical rainstorm!
The complimentary breakfast was varied,I tried nearly everything ( I'd recommend the pancakes). I would return here in an instant!

The staff was amazing, especially Christian and Marisa. We were not happy with our first room, and the manager quickly switched us to a much better and brighter room. The room and bathroom were very clean. The rest of the hotel was also very clean and nicely decorated. They offer free breakfast to their guests which was much better than the standard continental breakfast at the outdoor restaurant in front of the hotel, The Place. It's also located near all of the action in South Beach, and is right across the street from the beach. I would definitely stay here again!!

Sweet Deco hotel in prime spot on South Beach! Staff is very friendly and caring and rooms are well appointed and clean (even though small, the positives outweigh that). I had a great corner room overlooking Ocean Dr. (with all its lively energy), the beach and the blue ocean. The complimentary breakfast was yummy along with a very friendly staff there. I've stayed here before and would easily stay here again!

Room Tip: If you can afford it the rooms with an ocean view are fabulous!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Beacon Hotel. Location was perfect and on point. I especially want to thank each,anc every staff memeber from the Valet,Bellperson,front desk ,kitchen staff and the Ladies out front **AWESOME** Keep up the good work and don't draw back on giving excellent customer service. Eventhoe the wireless was down majority of our stay overall I would come back and stay again. Actually I am looking forward to spending my 40th there next year,as this year we celebrated my cousin 40th at your hotel. I greatly enjoyed your complimentary breakfast (dont draw back keep it going). On a side note love the furniture in the lounge and the colors.

Your truly

A very well appointed eclectic hotel with great staff from the valet to the front desk. The Ocean view was terrific and the room was clean and fresh. The bathroom was a little small but very functional with newer appointments. Will definately stay here again. Good food and service at the restaurant (The Place).

Room Tip: Ocean view is great. Fifth floor is the top.
