“A Step Back In Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

We stayed at the Beacon for 2 nights and will return again soon. Our room was very clean, overlooked the ocean and was very comfortable. All the employees were very nice and helpful. The recent renovation stayed with the Art Deco theme and we loved it! Plus the location is perfect for enjoying the night life without being in the heart of the noise. We also enjoyed the live music downstairs at the restaurant every night. Only down side is that they don't have a pool but they do have beach chairs in every room and are right across the street from the ocean.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we had a great time. The hotel is very well located, on Ocean Drive where there are lots of restaurants and bars. It is also near very good shops. The hotel is nice and clean, the room was beautiful, but we did not have a window view, because we did not asked for one. The hotel has nice amenities like robes, beach chairs and Beach towels. We really liked it. The people who work there are polite and helpful, we had a great time there, and we plan to come back.

We stayed at the hotel Beacon for 3 nights (2 at our arrival and 1 before leaving for home again) and are ready to come back at any time..... The position is fantastic, nice rooms and beautiful atmospfere. The personal was available for any question or service....and always with a smile and a nice word.....all of them.
The restaurant in the hotel serves incredible cocktails and tasty, well presented food....we ate every night there.
One only comment: We would like to stay again at the Beacon as soon as possible.

Great hotel - great price and great service. Room was large, bed very comfortable and bedroom and bathroom was very clean and well presented. Amazing location too. Only complaint and a warning was the bar outside the hotel that charged us $32 for a red wine and a screwdriver (vodka & orange). Beware!

We live on the west coast of Florida and stayed at the Beacon hotel for one night while meeting friends that were in Miami for the weekend. We had a room overlooking the beach. Everyone at the hotel was very pleasant and accommodating from the valet to the maid. The room we had was on the 5th floor and recently renovated. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. Great spot for being right in the action on Ocean Dr. Breakfast the next morning was very good. We'll definitely go back.

Room Tip: This hotel has 5 floors. The rooms at the top have a better view. Especially the corner rooms.

We stayed here after our cruise on Oct 30. The weather was very rainy, so instead of going to the beach as planned, we looked into a tour. Julianna at the front desk was extremely helpful with tour suggestions, maps and directions. I asked if there is a 'hop on hop off' bus tour as we did this in Chicago, and although it was not the tour she told us about, she found the info, copied the tour brochure (only one she had), called the company to ask my questions, and directed us the the stop within walking distance. The other staff were also very friendly and helpful. We had a late flight home so they stored our luggage in locked room, and offered us use of gym shower before our flight, arranged taxi to airport on time and with a great driver. Also the free breakfast was fantastic, choice of omelets, other eggs, french toast, etc.
Room fine, bathroom small, all clean. Older hotel.

The Beacon Hotel is perfectly wonderful! Right from the start the management and workers were so helpful and friendly. This continued throughout the stay. The room was delightful and contained so many wonderful ammenities! There were the usual things, and then there were robes, beach chairs, beach towels, and even an umbrella in the closet! The king sized bed was so comfortable with lots of pillows and a soft comforter. The shower was great - everything clean and inviting. Breakfast is included - but not your usual continental muffin. We had a choice of delicious breakfasts cooked to order that were fabulous! There was also coffee and tea available in the second floor living area.
The location is also wonderful if you want the real "South Beach" experience. It is in the best place for sidewalk dining, people watching, and beach recreation.
We will definitely go back to the Beacon if we get to South Beach again.
