“Excellent hotel and location.....”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I stayed at this hotel after a cruise the first part of May. It was wonderful. The staff was absolutely wonderful. We checked in early, got beach chairs and towels to go to the beach. When we told the front desk, our flight was very late on the next day, they had open rooms, so we did not have to check out until 2:00 p m the next day. The free breakfast was way more than expected too. I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with 7 guys for a bachelor party weekend August 8-11, 2013. Most of us used the Groupon that included free valet parking, which proved to be very helpful in South Beach. The room rates were still quite reasonable for those of us who didn't use the Groupon, however. Check-in was very smooth, and they were very helpful holding our bags for 4 hours after checkout prior to driving back to the airport. The rooms were on the small side, but they were appointed quite nicely for South Beach. I've stayed in a few different hotels in South Beach, and this is the first one that I'd be happy to stay in again.

The free towels and beach chairs proved to be quite handy during our stay, and the location couldn't be better for people-watching. The included brunch was delicious, and our servers were quite attentive despite our "free brunch" status. Despite all of the noise on the street, our room was very quiet and removed from the action for when we needed some downtime. Our friends on the first floor got basically no cell service, so I would stay on floors 2-4 if I had a choice about it (was on the 2nd floor this trip).

Would definitely stay again!

Great staff and location - lots of activity. Room well appointed and easy to find; good valet parking.
Lovely art deco facade and modern, well appointed rooms. Fun lobby - fresh lemonade in cute lounge on mezzanine. Good value too!

I have gone to South Beach once a year for the past 10 years and have stayed at numerous hotels and the Beacon Hotel is by far the best one yet. The staff is hospitable, friendly and very accommodating. The hotel is very clean both lobby and rooms. They gave us complimentary espresso and lemon-aide which was a treat.

Everyone who worked here were very friendly. I definitely recommend this hotel. Great Location. The breakfast was very good and they were always pretty fast! The people who cleaned the rooms did a great job! The only thing I didn`t like is the bathrooms were too small and the bathroom door you could see right through basically.

This hotel looks and feels exactly like a hotel you would expect to see in Miami. It has a very boutique feel with a great location across from the beach and is very near many of the hot spots on ocean drive. The rooms are “cozy” as expected with the location, but the customer service and location is top notch. My wife and I stayed here for a couple nights before for a cruise last year and the staff arranged for car service for us to the port. I’d highly consider booking here again during our next trip to Miami.
