The Beacon Hotel is a suave little hotel that "epitomizes Ocean Drive glam," says Travel + Leisure. The fabulous Art Deco façade, which you might recognize from the '80s classic "Scarface," is matched by retro neon lighting in the lobby and original marble floor tiles in the bedrooms.
Located in the heart of all the action, the hotel is right on lively Ocean Drive and across from Lummus Park and South Beach. The Wolfsonian and the Jewish Museum are a 10-minutes walk away, while the Bass Museum of Art can be reached within 30 minutes.
The property's protected status means it is a little limited on facilities -- there’s no spa or pool on-site. But there is a small fitness room, and Wi-Fi, breakfast, and tea and coffee in the lounge are all free. The restaurant is handy for a quick snack or an afternoon cocktail and has street-side seating for people watching.
The rooms were given a South Beach overhaul in 2013. They now sport new furniture and mattresses and a revamped color scheme. As is typical in Art Deco properties, most rooms are on the smaller side, but the suites have more space.
It’s one of the few affordable hotels in the area to offer a nightly turndown service, complimentary beach towels and fold-up chairs -- you’ll find them in the closet. The best views are from the upper floors facing the ocean.
