Location, friendly staff
2 domestic bottle beers $20.00 and they automatically charged gratuity of $3.00 to take the tops off the bottles. Ate at the curbside restaurant in front of the hotel. I had bacon, scrambled eggs and oatmeal and my wife had salmon omelette and we both had a beer and the bill was $85.00 I live in Vegas and those are higher than Bellagio prices and Bellagio is a palace fit for a king compared to this place.
The staff was wonderful and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch, as well as the beach chairs and towels. The location is perfect.
The only thing we could think of was the bathroom door in our room - it was made of lightly frosted glass that left little to the imagination when anyone was using it!
We wanted to experience the life style of south beach and thought that the Beacon would give us this opportunity. We had a great time and the hotel is located right were all the action is during the day and night. The art deco buildings and inside deco just made our two night visit the best ever.
knowing that the hotels back in the day had small rooms, narrow hallways and a small lobby just added to our enjoyment of stay at the Beacon. Even though some of the reviews made negative comments about this we loved every moment we spent at the hotel and time on South Beach. We liked everything.....
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small but very clean and comfortable. The hotel exceeded my expectations.
No complaints at all!
We stayed here for a hen weekend and the staff were fantastic. I've yet to find a hotel who are as helpful cheerful and accomodating. Sabine in My Thai looked after a huge group of us and was extremely professional and organised as well as really good fun! The food they served was delicious and presented well.Youshf at the front desk was really pleasent and helped keep me calm considering how big our group was and also looked after our belongings which we practically dumped on him!..and to Nigel the duty manager who was also very good to us Everything we asked for was dealt with in such a professional manner. Considering there were 30 girls not one of them had a bad word to say about The Beacon- we were all blown away
Not a thing was wrong with the Beacon.In fact my mum and my sisters hope to come back for a nite in December! Oh and Bernadette in reservations was a lifesaver and handled an extremely difficult task of sorting out our rooms! Thankyou!!!!
the location is excellent, it is across the street from the beach. The front desk staff was very helpful.
I had a room with a king bed and I had very little space to move around the bed. The room is extremely small. Valet parkin is very slow. You have to call for your car at least 30mins in advance.
Proximity to the beach, Ocean Drive night life and shopping
Almost all staff were excellent and fiendly. One was not.
Staff were very accomodating and changed our room after our first night(at our request due to noise),great location,hip and trendy hotel. Would stay there again and strongly recommend it for anyone. They even provide you with beach towels, which was great as I'd forgot ours!
Noisy doors, but have already had response to my feedback comment card and these are currently due to be replaced. This was only minor though as everything else was great and it would not put me off recommending it
The location was excellent and the room was nice & bright.
The hotel is refurbished nicely, although the finishing is a bit rough. Also, we were located on the backside of the hotel where the view was not so nice (backstreet alley), but then again: we only went to the hotel to have some sleep after a night on Ocean Drive... ;-)
Close to the ocean
The wireless network access did not work
the hotel staff and location
the very tiny bathrooms and we asked for an ocean view but could not see it!
