Dining

The Beacon Bar and Grill
The Beacon Bar & Grill (BB&G) serves Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Sunday Brunch. It has appeal for hotel guests and local-area residents alike. A sleek modern fireplace, communal tables, multi-level dining options and rich fabrics and furnishings create a sense of urban flair. Offering four distinctive dining experiences under one roof, BB&G caters to the varying lifestyles of its patrons. The space incorporates a high-energy, hob-knob lounge-style area with a two-story atrium room showcasing the bustling Dupont Circle neighborhood, as well as a more casual outdoor caf. As an alternative, private nooks and separate booths offer a quiet setting for business or intimate dining. Yet, the most sought-after seat in the house is the chef's table, a back-dining room where patrons can partake of the chef's distinctive fare fresh off the fire. Whichever dining experience you choose, BB&G's impressive menu offers the contemporary and inspired American cuisine to suit any mood.

OKAY Stay

The hotel was fine. There was a tiny kitchen, and very comfortable bed - great pillows. The bathroom was unusual as it had a storage area behind the sink, that included the coffee maker, which had to be moved to the bathroom counter in order to be plugged in. A bit odd. One day, the staff forgot to resupply the coffee supplies - which is a no no for those needing coffee right away. Wi-Fi available at cost.

Trip to DC

For the location of the hotel it was centrally located to all of the things we wanted to see in DC, wi-fi wasn't free neither was the breakfast.

Weekend Getaway

We went for a weekend getaway. At first I was a little upset because both women at the front desk, could not simply read my reservation was for a one bedroom suite. As I was checking in one of them said my room was not ready but she could upgrade me to a room with a kitchen. It didn't make sense, so I just told her No I will take the room I paid for. When I opened the door to our room, I could tell right away it was wrong. So I had to go back down to lobby and show the man at the desk, my reservation. He quickly apologized and put in the one bedroom suite I had reserved and paid for. To think they were going to put me in a room that was half the price is just stupid. After that though it was a good stay. The hotel is in a great location to federal areas, Dupont and Logan Circle, awesome restaurants on 14th street are just a 10 min walk.

Best location for savings and families

This hotel was convienently located near Dupont Circle and was considerably less than the other locations nearby. The suite was large enough for a small family and had the amenties needed (stove, large fridge, seperate living area) to allow for savings on long business trips or family vacations.
