Reviewed 4 June 2014

We stayed at The Beacon for my husband's birthday. And we loved every minute of it. The staff are all wonderful! Once they found out we were celebrating a birthday they surprised us with a bottle of champagne! Thank you so much!! Alex the manager was awesome! You also get breakfast in the morning, that was great too!
Location is perfect. Just walk across the street to the beach! And great clubs near by.

Room Tip: The suite is great!

We searched many hotels before settling on the Beacon for our one night stay in January before our cruise. We wanted to stay in a hotel opposite the beach, and also to enjoy the Art Deco feel of the area.

We checked in late afternoon and were promptly met by a porter who whisked our luggage off while our car was parked for us (for a small charge). Our corner suite, two rooms with a king size bed and fold out sofa bed for the kids was perfect. The bathrooms were tiny, but of course, this is an old building and these features only added to the whole experience for me.

My husband and I headed downstairs for a drink while the kids enjoyed the fast free wi-fi. The sofa bed was not made up, but one call and a house staff member was straight up to make it for them.

We headed out for dinner and were completely spoiled for choice. After reviewing menus, we settled on Caffe Milano - excellent food and service. Miami South Beach buzzes at night, and we loved walking along the beach front enjoying the sights and sounds.

Our bed was very comfortable, and despite the cafes and bars downstairs, we slept well. In the morning, we collected our breakfast voucher and enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the cafe downstairs. We had just enough time for a walk up to the Art Deco Museum before check out. When we returned to the hotel, I asked if we could go up to the roof top garden as I had seen the pictures on Facebook. We were told it was not open at this stage, which was unfortunate. However, as we were packing up, we had a call from reception saying Jose could take us up there. I was very impressed by this, as they made the effort to open it for us, and it was definitely worth a look.

Overall, excellent customer service, location is brilliant, hotel is charming, mixing old world Art Deco with modern day comfort. One day we'll come back and spend longer than one night.

Room Tip: Corner suite - great views!

Lovely hotel, very comfortable beds and very friendly and professional staff! Rooms are a bit small but there is no need for a bigger room. The beach is just across the street and the hotel itself is in the middle of the action on SB. I will definitely stay again next time I'm in SB. Also, they offer complimentary breakfast, which is nice.

Good service, the rooms include beach towels and chairs. When we left it was Memorial day weekend and oceandrive was closed off. The hotel arranged a taxi for us and someone from the hotel helped us with our luggage to where the taxi was waiting for us.

Free breakfast was the highlight of our stay. Great view of Ocean Dr. We didn't have any problem with the noise. Location was right across from the beach, nearby access to restaurants all within walking distance and shopping only a couple blocks away.

I could not have picked a better hotel. The staff was friendly, the location was perfect, and the complimentary breakfast in the morning was great. This hotel definitely made my Memorial Day weekend trip one to place in the books. I will definitely return to this hotel for my future stays.
