Fabulous hotel on the strip. Clean rooms and wonderful front desk staff. Breakfast, which was included, although basic and crowded was fine - you could pay more to order extras. The main menu was really overpriced even for South Beach and the seafood platter I could have bought from the frozen food section at Publix! Really disappointing. Found out they... More

Stayed here 1 night ,3 people total, on our way up the coast from the keys. Pulled right up and did valet for the night. Right off the beach in the middle of everything so it right in the action of Miami. Check in was a breeze and were able to get in a little earlier than check in time.... More

The Beacon Hotel is a great place to stay in South Beach. Reasonably priced, GREAT staff, clean rooms, and a GREAT breakfast make this the place to stay if you're looking for Art Deco style accommodations with a really great location on the beach and easy access to points of interest. This is the third time we've stayed there and... More

My first stay at the Beacon with two teenage daughters turned out to be a fantastic choice. We were there for four nights, and from reception on I cannot find anything to be displeased about. Location: on the southern edge of the heart of the Ocean Drive hotspots, the Beacon is solidly in this touristy-y art deco and bar district... More

Great location and maintained hotel. The room is small, but it was clean. It has a coffee maker, beach towels and beach chairs for your use. The front desk was very helpful in allowing to check our bags after checkout and before our flight! I would stay there again!!

Hotel was very close to the beach. Personal was very polite, service was great, all (birthday) wishes were arranged, clean and nice room, shower/bath not quite new but ok, excellent breakfast with great athmosphere right at Ocean Drive, shower after the beach was possible although already checked out ... great stay, gladly some time again.

Great location, they give you towels and chairs to go to the beach, great breakfast. All the staff is very friendly and are looking for ways to help you. Definitively will return! Saw very few kids but it is kids friendly.

Very Nice hôtel in a perfect place near to everywhere. Rooms clean and nicely désigned. Public parking 3' walk 20 dollars for 24h. Continental breakfast could clearly be improved, there is little variéty (only 1 type of yoghourt, 1 type of fruit, 1 type of basic jelly, toasts and 1 type of bagel). Great cocktails and happy hour in evening!
