Beacon South Beach Hotel
Ranked #58 of 214 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Right across the street from the beach and volleyball nets. There is no pool or spa but that seems to be fairly common of South Beach Hotels. The rooms are clean and the staff is all very friendly. The beach chairs provided are a very nice touch. They also provide free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the mornings along with a free breakfast voucher. Umbrellas are also provided for those rainy days.

We stayed here for a quick visit to Miami. All the hotel personnel were nice and we were very pleased with our room which was cute and clean. A great value with the FL resident discount- free parking and yummy free breakfast. My only tiny spot for improvement would be that the valet took longer than the advised twenty minutes to get our car.

Nice rooms were clean with great AC. Front desk service was absolutely above my expectations. I have no complaints nor did I during my stay. I had some simple requests such as car service and other ..... Each time I made a request , I was treated with care and Christian Mena at the Front Desk was an example of service at the highest level. He attended to us when we asked for area help , restaurant recommendations and even some out of tow Hotel advice for later in our trip. This man is a true professional and clearly a valuable asset to The Beacon Hotel. It is certain that he is one of the reasons we will return. We stayed in room 216. It was comfortable and had good outside light ......nice bathroom too.......... The outside needs a little refreshing but not major as is common for older ocean front hotels.

My husband and I went to south beach for a short stay while in Florida and a couple of days without the kids. We were not able to get an early checkin, but ate lunch at the restaurant below the hotel The Place. Very nice and great specials! This restaurant is also where you'll receive your free breakfast that is very good. We checked in after lunch and enjoyed the a/c and decor of room. The staff are very friendly and kind, the computer area is nice and useful since the free wi-fi isn't the best. We enjoyed the hotel a lot and were pleased by the groupon deal we received! I would strongly suggest this hotel since its across from beach, and you receive the essentials for the beach like chairs and towels. We walked around to all the area places and enjoyed the music and sights of ocean drive!

I stayed in the Beacon Hotel for 4 nights and loved everything about it! The staff is extremely friendly/helpful and the hotel itself is very clean and beautiful. I was very impressed by the art deco decor! The complimentary breakfast was also delicious! We enjoyed the food at the hotel so much that we ate there for dinner a couple of times also! Stay at this hotel, you will not regret it!

This hotel is so gergeous! We stayed there only for one night in april. Totally clean, staff is friendly und so helpful. Breakfest is excellent and in the restaurant in front of the hotel. Very close to South Beach and Washington Street and directly to the Ocean Drive. I will stay there again!

Room Tip: We had a room on the fourth floor and the view was great!

Miami is an amazing place to have a girl's trip. The Beacon puts you right in the middle of all the excitement of Ocean Drive. As soon as we arrived we ate lunch at the hotel, they have great food by the way. South Beach is literally right across the street. Beach chairs are complimentary from the hotel. My only problem was my best friend's blanket was stained when we checked into the room. We called and they replaced it. But overall, it's a cute hotel in an amazing location.
