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.

Between the Farragut North and Dupont Circle Red Line stops, the Beacon is very convenient. The king "delux" room was a bit small but served our purposes. The fitness room was tiny (they do offer access to the YMCA next door) but again, served its purpose. The staff could not have been nicer.

Overall experience was good. Tried couple of times to turn the AC off but nevertheless it remained on, room was so cold. Vallet Parking for $35 per day!!!!! Its a rip off, I've never heard of a hotel that charges for vallet.

Good BUT...

I got a very good rate on a room here so thought I'd give it a try. The location is top notch. Place is very busy, lots of tourists constantly coming and going in the smallish lobby. Room is on the large side BUT it's tired looking/feeling. Everything is BEIGE, and it has that carpet-fresh smell that I'm always suspicious of. The room was clean enough but the decor seemed late 1980s and in need of an update. Based on my rate the value was GOOD so I'd recommend it up to a point but if you're going to pay anything more than about $140, I'd say you might do better elsewhere.

Great Value & Location

Good hotel for a reasonable price offered at a great location. Close to the metro, DuPont circle, restaurants, and only a 3 minute walk to all the bars. There's also a restaurant/bar downstairs, but we didn't have the time to experience this. Parking is scarce, but that's anywhere in DC. We stayed over the weekend so parking was free on the street. The room certainly wasn't "luxury", but was nice and got the job done.

Good enough for the money

Stayed here during the work-week while seeing the sites with another family member. While I would have appreciated a mini-frig like every other hotel in the world, I made do without, simply because of how close everything was. Walking distance to the White House and the National Mall, prob need a cab/bus for Congress. Bar scene is within 5 minute walk, many restaraunts to choose from, and the valet never took very long to retrieve our car (5 mins tops). Everyone was very nice, but you can definitely tell that their goal is to be a budget hotel within walking distance to the sites. Unless you're looking for a bottle of wine on your bed when you check-in, this is more than enough for a short or prolonged stay. Most hotels in this area are DOUBLE the nightly cost

Great weekend escape

My wife and I spent a very pleasant Sat. evening at the Beacon. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the price was quite reasonable. The only small complaint was that there was a fair bit of exterior noise from cars, emergency vehicles, etc. I suspect this varies based on room location.

Good place to stay for a busy weekend!

The Beacon is conveniently located near Dupont Circle. The Hotel itself is small, unassuming, and neat. The staff is fantastic! The room is well maintained and quiet, with lots of light. Though room was just the right size for the busy weekend we had in store.

Saturday night stay

You get what you pay for. Young, rowdy crowd stayed here on Saturday night. Lots of commotion at 3am when everyone returned from the bars. Aside from that, decent place and nice location.
