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.

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!

Lower than expected

I have been to the Beacon for their brunch and rooftop bar before, but this time I decided to try the hotel. Both nights the rooftop bar was closed for private events, so they kept people out of elevators... they even kept us out (with our bags and all) until we rudely had to explain we were staying at the hotel. The hotel was understaffed (the front desk lady said she had been working over 24 hours). Our room was tiny with 1 foot of walking space. On the desk, they cluttered it with a champagne bottle and glasses to tempt you. The air vent, which was right next to the door was either very cold or warm air. We even tried to simply get drinks on Sunday morning at the restaurant, but it they were only serving all you can eat brunch without a menu option. The location was good for us and the pillows were awesome, but I will never stay there again.

You decide...

We received two twin beds instead of the single king bed we reserved and pre-paid for. The desk honcho claimed the reservation was non-specific, and that there were no king or queen beds available. Other than the bed issue this was a good place, and the concierge and valet service ($33/day) were excellent. We were allowed to check-out by noon yet keep our car parked until 3:00 without additional charge. If you are looking for the American style of negotiating and resolving reservation problems you are out of luck here: I saw no Americans working here. This hotel attracts a lively 21-35 crowd with higher discretionary income!

Non-smoking room

My non-smoking room was definitely a smoking one at some point. Everything smelled of cigarettes, even my clothes after the visit. The room is pretty small, but the bed is comfortable. The location is perfect, right off Dupont, and it was not loud at all. The room that I had was very sunny and bright.

One Night in DC

Staff was ok. The location was perfect walking distance to a lot of resturants, attractions and shopping. The bathroom was very small, but comfortable. The hotel's decor has a nice homely feel. We asked for them to extend our check out by an hour but they couldn't due to the hotel being booked up.

Weekend getaway.

I arrived to the hotel at 1:30 hoping to get checked in early because normally it's at 3pm. This was the first time where I actually had to wait until normal check in time. That was not a good way to start my trip but everything besides that was fine. If you find a deal for around $100 a night on the weekend, it's worth the price.
