“The perfect getaway in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

It was the third time staying at the Beacon in Miami Beach. This small hotel located directly on Ocean Drive is simply amazing. Everything is beautifully decorated and fits the style of the Art Deco district. We had an Ocean Front room for our last stay in the US during our wedding holidays. The room was newly renovated, the king size bed was very comfortable, and everything was very clean. The hospitality and friendliness of the staff is more than one can expect. I checked with the hotel in beforehand for an early arrival since we came back from our cruise, and everything worked out perfectly. As a gift from the hotel we received a romantic champagne getaway on the rooftop of the Beacon Hotel, overlooking South Beach in the evening. What a way to end our wedding holidays. Sabrina arranged an evening package for us, suggestion locations and transportation. All we can say: Everything was planed more than perfect and we will truly remember this day in South Beach. We definitely recommend the Beacon and will return on future travels to Miami Beach.

Room Tip: If you want to have an amazing view on South Beach in the morning when you get up, be sure to ask fo...

We loved this hotel and its situation being very close to south beach. Although our room was small, it was beautifully decorated and we arrived to find a bottle of champagne next to the television - what a way to start our honeymoon!

Although we had some problems with the telly this was fixed almost immediately. We spent the first day in the room watching telly and drinking champagne as were totally exhausted. On the second day we met some locals who recommended us some restaurants of which we went to on of them, but were not too please with the food.

I would like to thank Louis for taking care of us and being very attentive.

This is a boutique hotel on Ocean Drive. The rooms are extremely small and the bathroom while clean was uncomfortable for a couple. I am also not a fan of the frosted glass bathroom doors which do not provide much privacy. However, the customer service is excellent. You also get a complimentary breakfast as a guest of the hotel (the eggs and home-fries are delicious). There is a small (weight machine, treadmill and elliptical) gym off of the lobby which I was happy to use every morning before indulging in the complimentary breakfast. The location is excellent as you are right across from the beach. If only the rooms were bigger!!

The staff was very nice and attentive. Any probable I had was solved eventually. The rooms were small, but you won't be I there long. I did not like the frosted glass bathroom door. I loved being on the main strip and across from the ocean. The food was very good. The servers on the side walk were ok, but not attentive.

First time in Miami. Love the Art Deco hotels on the South Beach strip! The Beacon was clean and our room looked over Ocean Drive. Clean and a welcoming AC unit which was fabulous! Great service and attention by staff. Stayed here 2 nights May 2012.

Beacon Hotel on south beach is the description of anyone wanting to see Miami. The rooms are small they are working with refurbished from its early days on the strand. They do not have adequate oulets for anyone needing to recharge anything but the beds are so comfortable you don't move all night.

This hotel is great and I stay here everytime I come to miami! Not only is the staff great but the hotel is directly across the street! Highly recommended..Yessica was our waitress and she is always great. You get a complimentary breakfast for being a guest, and they have a small gym that you can use. Christian one of the many front desk clerks is also great and can give you directions to any of the hot spots in the city.
