I visited the Beacon at the beginning of October 2013 with my sister and we were both very impressed. The reception area and room were both very well looked after, clean and modern, and, despite having one of the more modest rooms, it was bright and spacious and the facilities were just fine. The bed was comfortable and, we thought, quite new, and the shower was good - the two main things we all look for in hotel rooms!
My sister and I are in our twenties and therefore wanted a fun, lively holiday with good access to the beach, and the Beacon was absolutely perfect for this! The hotel is across the road from South Beach (which, by the way, is gorgeous!) and on the main strip so, as soon as you leave the front door of The Beacon you have plenty of restaurants and bars on your doorstep. Nightclubs such as LIV and Mansion are just a short taxi ride away - I think the fare to LIV was only $11, so not too awful!
Finally, the staff were absolutely perfect - all you could ask for, and the main reason we loved The Beacon! There was nothing that was too much trouble for them, and we felt welcome every time we walked into reception. We cannot commend them highly enough :)
All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel and this area of South Beach, and would certainly visit again - we love Miami!
