“Gorgeous bed! Great location!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed here for one night for our wedding anniversary and loved the hotel! The beach is across the road and there is a really great vibe as soon as you walk on to south beach!
The reception staff were really welcoming and helpful and gave us some good tips on where to eat and find things to do. Our room was really big and spacious however the bathroom was a bit on the small side and the hair dryer was quite a challenge to use as you had to hold the button in on the wall to make it work!
Great that they provided beach towels and deck chairs,a nice added bonus!
Bed was huge and linen was so comfortable and really good quality. The hotel is in a great location right on south beach but the restaurants are pricey so go to Collins or Lincoln Drive and you will find some lovely places! Great shopping too!
Breakfast was really good and a nice selection to choose from.
We would defiantly stay here again!!

We had a great stay here! The staff was absolutely wonderful - friendly but professional, always helpful. Loved the location, the beach chairs and towels that were included with the room, and the mojitos that came with our package. The BEDS - we want to buy one for our home! They were sooooo comfortable. Our room towards the back had no view, but we loved the fact that we heard absolutely no street noise in it - just blissful quiet. Also, free breakfast is always a nice way to start the day!

Room Tip: We liked our room at the back end of the hall - corner, so had windows on two walls, and it was QUIE...

Last week me and my wife stayed here. We reached early in the morning (around 9 AM), even though the check in time is 3 PM, still they gave us the room key without any extra charge, also provided breakfast coupons (my wife really loved it). Breakfast was descent.

Location wise its at the best location. They also provide beach towels and chair. Beds are nice as well, bathroom doors are transparent which I don't like that much but ok not a big deal as long as you are statying with your partner.

Staffs were very nice. Een though water is charged, still one of the receptionist gave us 6 bottles of water for free. I will definitely recommend it to others

Room Tip: Room at top floor and south side has good view of ocean from room itself.

This hotel sits right on Ocean Drive, so if you want to be where the action is, this is the place. Like most Art Deco hotels on SoBe, this one is small, but well appointed furnishings and a nice renovation make this hotel just lovely. There is no spa and no pool, but still it was a great hotel. Oh-the beds were extremely comfortable! The best part of this hotel was the service, particularly through the front desk and bell staff. They accomodated us with everything from dinner reservations to where the best spots were for music and shopping. I would go back in a minute JUST for the service. This is a can't miss in South Beach!

Stayed one night with a friend in a Deluxe double room with no view, but at the rate of $105/night with our Florida discount couldn't be better. Nice sized room and small but efficient size bathroom. Staff were very friendly and breakfast is complimentary. In room beach chairs and towels made out beach day great. Its location directly across the street from the beach could not be more convienent as well as the many cafes and bars available within a stone's throw distance. Valet parking was worth the $20 as to not worry about the car. Rooms and lobby were very clean. I will come back. Thank you Beacon Hotel.

Firstly let me say that I rarely write poor reviews and always aim to find positive things from every experience. With this hotel there are positives and negatives in abundance.

We were greeted to a very warm welcome. Our bags were immediately taken to our room and our car driven away by valet parking (albeit at a cost of $20 per day). There is no parking at this hotel so please bear in mind the additional cost. Our room was very small and the bathroom tiny. There was nowhere to hang any clothing so we had to live out of our suitcases. The view was terrible. We looked out onto a neighbouring hotel with a resident tramp sleeping on a balcony. Not quite the sea or garden view we had been promised. The toilet was not working on arrival and became blocked 3 times during our 5 day stay. However it was quickly rectified on each occasion. The only good thing about the room was the large comfortable bed. There was a safe for storing valuables and a drinks fridge (very expensive). The hotel has free complimentary wifi which was very handy for keeping in touch with home. The hotel also provides complimentary beach towels which is useful. Breakfast is provided each mornIng at the adjoining restaurant called The Place. This was adequate if unexciting. One word of warning though. Please check reviews of The Place before eating dinner there because it is well known to be a bit of a scam.

My main bugbear with this hotel is the noise. Not the noise coming from the many bars in the area. I expected that. It was the noise from inside the hotel itself. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything that goes on around you. Partygoers with no regard for those trying to sleep will shout and bang doors throughout the night. One night our neighbours came home at 5am and we were treated to a full on love making session for 2 hours. It sounded like we had a porno on in our room. Very embarrassing and my pregnant girlfriend actually cried because she was so tired and couldn't sleep with the constant noise.

In summary I would say if you are a young person wanting to party all night you will find this hotel perfect. The location is excellent and it is good value. If you are looking for somewhere to relax you might choose to look elsewhere.

We stayed the Sept 21 week-end. There were 9 of us for the football game. I travel a lot and this hotel and the staff were by far the BEST I have ever experienced. Starting with Christian, Julio, Lilijana to name a few. They went above and beyond with their hospitality and generosity. The hotel was spotless and the location was incredible. Right in the heart of it. The breakfast that was included in our package was delicious and sitting there above the sidewalk eating it and enjoying the view was great. The rooms were clean and we encountered no noise at all from the action. Already planning a week end with the wives now to the same place.
