Great hotel & staff, but some wear & tear

Posted Apr 17, 2017
We loved the look of the hotel, the staff was so nice & accommodating, but the whole place needs a touch/up... old carpeting in the hallway, dirty seat cushions on chairs & benches, rooms somewhat outdated.

I stayed at the Beacon Hotel South Beach and was accompanied by my wife and daughter on April 5-7. We all had a blast. The hotel is situated in the heart of Miami Beach. Practically everything was in walking distance. The beach was right across the street and the hotel provided beach chairs (in your room) and new towels every time you went down to the beach. The staff was professional and courteous. We arrived early on Wednesday and left our luggage with the staff while we went to the beach. I don't recall the actual check-in times, but the hotel seemed to do their best to accommodate. The continental breakfast was just okay, but it was nice to sit and people watch in the morning while enjoying a nice tropical breeze. We went on a Art Deco and Food Tour with our new friend, Faruk through Viator. He was very knowledgeable and convenient to where we were staying. The room was a bit small, but nicely designed and comfortable. Besides, we spent most of our time at the beach and exploring South Beach. We highly recommend this hotel. Mark

Perfect Miami South Beach hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2017
Great staff, service, ambience, and location. Everything one would hope for in an Art Deco south beach hotel--an immersive experience I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a true taste of South Beach.

Location was fine, but it was a very noisy hotel.

Posted Apr 1, 2017
Pros: We were told they had up graded us when we arrived and the room was clean and tidy. The bed was comfy. The Tv did not work and Staff appolagised.
Cons: The one lift available is shaken and slow. A bit scary really!
Location: Location was fine as we wanted to be close to the cruise ship terminals. It was right on the beach front.
We were disappointed with this hotel. We think it's overrated and overpriced.

Dear Guest, Thank you for feedback. Please note that city permits allow our neighbor to work from 8AM-6PM. The hotel cannot doing anything during these hours. Outside these hours, we are constantly monitoring that they do not disturb our guests. As for the drinks, we have brought this attention to the restaurant management (different company) and are currently in the process of improving their establishment
