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 Hotel

The hotel was okay. Towels were a little rough, but good location near Dupont Circle and Metro line. Good for the price too. Only thing i did not appreciate is that we called in the morning for a late check-out which they said we could have for $44 more dollars. Then around 1pm a manager came to our door unannounced telling us we had to leave. Since we were not properly dressed we had to yell through the door explaining that we requested a late check-out. He said it would be another $50, in which we explained that they told us in the morning it would only be $44 more. Then he said fine and left. It would have been more appropriate if the manager had called us instead of beat down the door and try to kick us out when we were not ready. It was embarrassing.

Best value in the neighborhood

best price I found for a good hotel in an expensive area. The facility and the room were fine, not spectacular. I was surprised that wireless Internet was not complimentary.

pros and cons

I took a weekend trip with my family. The staff was very friendly. I can honestly say the hotel room was beautiful, sophisticated, and clean. However the aesthetics of the room became slightly overshadowed by the lack of basic functional necessities of a room such as a refrigerator and microwave. However, the location is excellent. It's only a close walk to the train station and the center of Washington DC. Overall, the experience was enjoyable. I would recommend this stay to any guest.

A Weekend Stay

[...] It's in a good location, close to the White House area. It's also an easy walk to Dupont Circle. I had upgraded to a bigger room for a small fee and the room was huge. The restaurant in the hotel was good. The lobby area is small but everyone was helpful.

The hotel had older furnishings and the bathroom was very small. We changed rooms to a bigger and cleaner room.

Outrageous prices for mediocrity

This was a mediocre hotel - nothing special or outstanding to write home about. However, it was most disturbing to pay over $300/night and have someone check in next to me who was charged only $199 for the same night. These prices are outrageous. Further, I had to wait over two hours to check in because they only had rooms with two beds available.
