    Historical Traveler Reviews Beacon Hotel Miami Beach

    In the midst of SOBE

    from

    Stayed there for a one night layover from South America on a Friday night. Stay there and you avoid the hassle of getting into the SOBE night life. The accomodations were okay, except one window that allowed the possibility of letting people in the outside hall look into the room. The blinds are a help, but was a little disconcerting. Restaurant on property, food was okay, price was reasonable for the area. Right in the middle of the action.

    Could have been better

    from

    Beacon was not all that it was hyped up to be. The rooms were nice, but a little generic compared to some of the neighboring hotels.

    Great Place

    from

    Stayed late Nov 03. The place was welcoming and very stylish. Its located within tripping distance of the beach, and in the centre of the art deco district with the great night life. Having said that, the rooms were quiet. You could complain the rooms are smaller than normal - but if you want a modern hotel, I say stay in a Marriot or a Best Western (together with the universal character vacuum). All the hotels along Ocean Drive are small but have a great atmosphere. I would definitely stay again. Note- breakfast is not in the hotel, but next door in the cafe - literally 8 steps from the hotel - and outdoors overlooking the side walk - great for people watching!

    Beware Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Beacon Hotel in August. From the reviews I read and the pictures on the hotel's website I thought that this would be a great hotel to stay at. The location is great (right in the middle of everything) and the staff at the restaurant are really nice, but everything else is awful. Our room was very small and two people couldn't stand in the bathroom at the same time. We had a view of the alley and could hear the dishes being washed from the restaurant all night long. This hotel is in some serious need of updating. When we complained to the manager he said "what do you expect this hotel was built in the 1930's" I would not recommend that anyone stay at this hotel and am very suprised by the good reviews. Actually I don't think they were written by people that have stayed at The Beacon Hotel.

    Beware!!!!!

    You must be kidding

    from

    This place is by no stretch of the imagination luxurious or 4 star. The staff is friendly and tries hard, but that doesn't make up for this hotel's shabby, almost motel-ish atmosphere. The bathrooms are in serious need of repair, let alone updating and the web site photos of the property are very misleading. Beware!

    Feels like Spain

    from

    I've stayed here every time for the past 2 years. My family is from Spain, however I haven't traveled there for the past 2 years... The Beacon is the next best thing... and at HotelKingdom you can find real discounts on there rooms. I won't be changing anytime soon.

    Beacon Hotel--A good choice

    from

    The Beacon is a lovely hotel. We had a wonderful stay. The staff is friendly and eager to please. My only complaint is that they are not as knowledgeable as they could be about some things--I asked for directions to two different landmarks and was given slightly incorrect information. The property is well maintained and the rooms are tidy. I would stay there again.

    Simple and elegant

    from

    The Beacon was a great retreat in busy Miami. The rooms were simple and roomy and the staff accomodating.

    The Fabulous Beacon Hotel

    from

    Our stay at that Beacon (during the week-end of Nov 16, 2002, was "fantastic". Ocean ("Deco") Drive, in South Beach, Fl is such a fun place in general, and the Beacon Hotel stands out in the center of the strip, literally like a beacon of light in the night. The building is in the original Art Deco, in those great shades of coral and ocean blue, on a stark white background, I believe it dates back to the thirties. Inside, the lobby radiates relaxation and simplicity (very easy on the eyes). The staff is fantastic, I never met such a happy, pleasant group of people before; and all in the same establishment. From the front desk, to the Concierge, to the Housekeeping crew everyone seems to want nothing more than to please their guests, and to in to join their happy little familly. The room was emaculate, it was cheerful and tastefully furnished in the same simple Art Deco style as the rest of the hotel. And the Rendezvous on the Beach restaurant out front was a delight for both lunch and dinner (food was delicious). Whoever is reading this, if you want to have a great stay in South Beach, this is the place!

    Wonderful Hotel w/ South Beach Flavor

    from

    i had an amazing stay at the Beacon Hotel, located in the heart of South Beach. my first time to Miami, i wanted to experience the art deco/ ocean drive that i had heard so much about and got exactly that with the Beacon. the staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the boutique rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. i stayed in a kind deluxe (room 504 - corner of top floor) at only $115 per night and i had a nice room with wonderful views of ocean ave and the beach. i recommend this hotel to all who want to experience south beach...

    ... no help. travelling together for two weeks had taken its toll.
    I couldn't get anything to work when we made it to the airport and had exhausted all my options.

    ... of traveling, I spent years standing at a work bench dreaming of how it would be. The last week in Miami was a lot more like what I had expected. But in general, no, it's just not what I wanted, not what I expected. I do feel I've let myself down coming home. It's been exhausting emotionally and physically though. I've had a superb time and I do not regret this decision. By no means is traveling now over for the rest of my ...

    ... he needed a drink. We told him he could wait both times. We made our way to the Port to meet our ship. It was huge...and so was the line to get aboard. It holds 4500 passengers and it felt like they were all in the line. After an hour and a half of cuing, signing forms and security checks we were on!! So exciting. We found our room and were a little disappointed. This is Norwegian Cruise liners newest ship. The room is smaller than our previous cruise ship, ...
