1) I chose this hotel because I only had a couple days in South Beach, and I wanted to show my kids the true vibe of the area. Also, I wanted an ocean view. Certainly the Beacon delivered all this and more.
2) Pulling up to the hotel on Ocean Drive is utter chaos. Without the valet we would have been sunk. These guys have things running like clockwork out there. It was fun in a bizarre way, leaving the car double parked on this cuh-razy street while we swizzled between gorgeous people sipping drinks on the street to get into the hotel itself. The only flaw with the whole entry drama, one bag did not get removed from the car, so it was kind of a "who's on first" experience to figure out how to get it out.
3) The lobby decor is totally fab. I love the orange the the glity decorations. More is more. Check in staff was polite and attentive.
4) the Room..Well about what I expected for the area. I wanted ocean view, I am sure you sacrfice some size for view. It was so tiny in there, I was constantly knocking things into the toilet wth my elbows. Also, there was a shelf too close to the faucet, so you couldn't get nice hot water.Kind of tepid. The floor was marble. Easier to clean sand off? It was cold but they sent us a space heater.All in all a great stay in the heart of south beach
5)STaff was very confdent and helful
