Very nice experience at hotel. In midst of action, spacious room if a little used, nice meals in sidewalk cafe. Very helpful staff. Only problem when we prepared to leave and guy volunteered to help us get a taxi. Turns out it was late and charged far more than standard rate despite bedraggled van. Obvious organized rip-off, so beware of...

Great hotel right on the beach. Lovely clean rooms and excellent staff. Breakfast is basic book good and has super views on the 7th floor. Free beach towels and sun loungers and good food options for lunch and dinner. At the top end of the beach so quieter but just a few minutes walk down the main road and you...

The room and the hotel didn't disappoint, especially with its proximity to excellent restaurants and South Beach. We walked the beach on a windy day, but took in the beautiful sights. The restaurant on site was excellent and the service was A1!

To quote the Grinch (the one who stole Christmas), Oh, the noise, the noise, noise, noise, noise. Having said that, it was Spring Break, and we had a room overlooking the beach and Ocean Drive. We are a couple in our early 50's and we knew going in that Miami Beach can be quite lively all night long, and then...

I've been to Miami a number of times for work and stay far from the touristy area - but since I was on vacation, I decided to check out the Art Deco District in South Beach. The Beacon Hotel serves as a great base for a Miami Beach holiday. It is right in the heart of the Art Deco District...

This hotel is in an amazing location, but there are some drawbacks. I booked a standard room, but we were somehow upgraded to the Oceanview room, cool, except it was Spring break and we had an early flight to catch. We didn't get any sleep whatsoever. One other thing to be aware of is that the restaurant and bar onsite...

Upon check in we were politely informed that the room was not yet ready. Also, that we would be upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite....best room in the hotel. And the room, #219, was terrific. A bedroom and living room with 2 bathrooms. And the bedroom overlooks Ocean Drive so we could watch the activity below as well as have...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and feedback. Our breakfast hours are from 9AM - 11AM, as is gratefully offered by the restaurant, which is owned by a separate company. Most guests find these hours to be very reasonable, but we do understand it might not be for everyone. Rest assured we do have a strict pest control program...

This property is in dire need of investment by the owners and a lift in amenity and service standards. While public areas are OK and retain an art deco feel, rooms and the 'free' breakfast need attention. The property has a building renovation going on right alongside it, while lift noise and other guests late night corridor conversations also make...

The lobby is pretty and the rooms are okay with the exception of the bathroom. The bathroom is super tiny. The portion where the toilet and sink are located is 4x3.
