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.

Overall an Enjoyable Stay

I stayed at this hotel for a conference which was in the Capital Hill District and am glad that I did. The hotel staff was very accommodating throughout my stay. The location was great to be within walking distance of Dupont Circle and many trendy restaurants. The layout seemed to be a bit odd at times like it was not originally a hotel but was converted to one so space and configuration of the room and other spaces was not always ideal. Overall it was worth the walk to my conference and layout of the hotel was only a minor inconvenience for me. I would stay there again without reservation.

Convenient and comfortable

I have stayed at Beacon Hotel several times and they consistently are welcoming and efficient for business travelers. My room (2 doubles) was spacious but had a very tiny bathroom. In contrast to other rooms in the past, decor seemed dated and carpet extra thin. Front desk and valet staff were very cordial and accommodating. Breakfast was a good value (15% already reasonable price) with good service. I would definitely stay there again as I am typically not looking for luxury but comfortable value in the heart of DC.

Serviceable, but could be better

With its location, bars on the rooftop and street level, and bistro, it's a noisy spot well into the night. Breakfast room service was not outrageous, but the pancakes were spare tires. Why no free wif-fi in the sleeping rooms? Not sure I'd return if I could find a 3+ star alternative in the same locale.

great location for touring DC

My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff was friendly, room was comfortable, amply spaced and great bedding. They did forget to pick-up our in-room breakfast order the first day but they were very sorry and sent us a bottle of wine in apology. The location is 3 blocks from the metro, which we used every day, and one stop to the main part of DC. Great roof-top bar and delicious restaurants in the hotel. The only drawback is that they do not have a pool and being July in DC, we would have loved to spend an evening relaxing by the pool.

Inexpereinced unprofessional staff.

I called tje hotel after making my reservation to ask about a pool for the kids. I told them my reservation was for the 4th of July. They told me that there was a health club with a pool that guests can use. Upon arrival on the 4th the kids wanted to use the pool. The desk clerk informed me that the health club is closed on the 4th. The assistant manager did nothing to try and rectify their blunder. He was quite cold about it. I travel quite a bit and his attitude was hotel unprofessional.

nice hotel

The service was prompt and the staff are very attentive. The hotel was much better than I had expected. It was clean and comfortable. I learned during my stay that is was one of few Green Hotels in Washington, DC. One of the best stays I've had. I'd definitely stay here the next time I am in Washington, DC.

D.C. doesn't deliver

This hotel has not one amenity! No ice bucket, no ice! Not enough room for two to be in the bathroom. One bar of soap. I box of half empty Kleenex. I extra toilet paper. One extra towel. Could not use the roof top bar as a private party had it booked. Could not enter our room until exactly 3:00. they had no place to hold our luggage while we waited to get in room. The car was 15 minutes late from valet parking after we had arranged for it to be ready at a certain time. NO coffee pot and no coffee available until 7:30 a.m. No help telling us where coffee was OPEN before 8 a.m. They directed us to a Starbucks and it was still closed on a Sat. morning. If they can't serve it, they should be able to get their guests coffee that is available. No free breakfast, no snacks, no bar in room. Expensive room for oh so little value!
