We stayed at the Beacon for my husband's birthday a couple of weeks ago. We picked this hotel because we wanted to stay in the middle of all of the restaurants and bars (The Cleavlander) in South Beach. The hotel was very cooly decorated (all white and orange in the lobby) and the service was top notch! I would definitely stay there again!

I stayed at the hotel after getting off a cruise and enjoying a few days in Miami. Beacon hotel was in a great location, right across from the beach, great restaurants just steps away.

The staff was very helpful. I arrived early in the morning and they did their best to help me out and answer my questions. Juliana at the front desk was especially helpful and I really appreciated that she took every effort to help me out despite being very busy. Excellent customer service!

The room was fine, clearly remodeled at some point. It wasn't 100% clean when I arrived but this was a small issue in comparison to my general experience.

Hotel wireless internet was good enough to even skype home (a first in my life at a hotel). Amazing!

This is a lovely iconic art deco building in a fabulous location right on the ocean front, in the heart of the lively South Beach district. The reception area is beautifully furnished and in keeping with the art deco era with a contemporary twist which is echoed in the guest rooms. We stayed for 3 nights in an ocean view room, and the outlook was fabulous. However, if you do choose a room on the front be prepared for the noise which accompanies such a vibrant location! Being an old hotel the rooms are small but very well equipped down to the free wi-fi and beach chairs, a lovely touch! My only gripe was the glass door on the bathroom which, despite being frosted, did not offer very much privacy for the person using the toilet!! There are no coffee making facilities in the room but hot refreshments are available on the second floor from 7am to 11 am which compensates for this. Another added bonus of this place is that you get free breakfast, served outside, which was a lovely way to start the day. Good choice of breakfast food which was always delicious. Would definitely return if in Miami and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others. Thanks for a great stay!

We had a great time. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and in excellent condition for its age. It is a classic Art Deco inside and out. Also, "The Place Restaurant" was really good, and the complementry breakfast was 2nd to none! This hotel is one I would recommend to my friends.

This hotel couldnt be at a better location, is just in front of the beach! The hotel has been recently renovated and is very nice inside. The bedrooms are not big, but decent. It is not meant for tourist who want to stay at their hotel rooms, you pay the location. They give you beach chairs and towels !!!!! The area is very noisy at night, as you can expect, but i really didnt hear any noise or have any problem sleeping

Room Tip: There are beach chairs and towels in your room! Look for them!

My wife and I stayed at The Beacon with 2 friends in February 2013. I rented two rooms for three nights. We had a great time! In short, I would definitely stay there again.

For a little background: I have been to South Beach 7 times now. I've stayed at different hotels on Ocean Drive 6 of my 7 trips.

Not only would I stay here again, I *will* stay here again.

The Good:
First, the rooms were quiet. I was shocked at how quiet the rooms were given my general experience at South Beach hotels. The bed was very comfortable. My sleep quality was nothing short of fantastic.

Second, the staff was helpful and friendly. I made a few special requests for my room and the staff exceeded my expectations.

Third, the location. It is almost centrally located to Ocean Drive and it's within a very short walk to just about everything to do on Ocean Drive. All of the hot spots are nearby.

Fourth: it was nice and clean!

Did I mention it was quiet???

What I didn't like:
Overall, I loved the hotel, but everyone and everything can be improved. Here are the hotel's minor drawbacks:
*The wireless internet was fairly slow the times that I used it from an iPad and my smartphone.
*The water pressure in our shower could have been a lot stronger.
*I am a really athletic guy and I tend to be a little warm all the time, but the room's AC unit didn't cool nearly as much as I would have liked. Note: the room was still comfortable, just not as cool as I would have wanted.

Room Tip: Ask for the quietest room possible. Our room was as far away from the lobby as possible.
