Convenience

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 8, 2011
The Beacon was convenient, close to Dupont Circle. The desk clerk offered to upgrade our room upon arrival, saying that the room would be an executive suite with a sofabed. We paid for the upgrade, but the room was no larger than a normal room and I was unimpressed by the "upgrade." The hotel itself is fine, nothing to write home about, not the newest or cleanest carpets, etc. and hotel staff were not behind the desk later in the evening. All in all, I would prefer a better accommodation of higher quality. The Doorman was very sweet and helpful!

Dining

The Pinkberry yogurt/smoothie place on Connecticut was a great place late evening for a snack!

Beacon Hotel affortable but not worth it

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 8, 2011
The plus about this place was to hit their sky bar which would have offered a nice view but they close at 11:00 on a Friday. Why would a bar close early on a Friday? Otherwise there really isn't anything special about this place. They have valet parking but it was full when I got there though the parking lot across the street was cheaper than the hotel parking. Would go again for affordability but nothing else.

Nightlife hint

This hotel is pretty close to 17th and P and other bars. That was very helpful.

quite nice

Would recommend Mon, Aug 8, 2011
nice location between DuPont Circle and Downtown, 7 minutes walk from metro station, lots of restraunts in the area. Nice clean comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff. I thought a frigde was mentioned in the description; they said only suites have fridges. Would recommend it to a friend for the price I have paid.

Money saver

We ordered a $18 breakfast and ended up with $26 bill, tips, taxes, service charge included.

Great location, nice room

Would recommend Sun, Aug 7, 2011
Booked the room on a sale and based on previous reviews. Check in went smoothly and the staff was courteous and helpful. Room was very clean and better than expected. Convenient to two metro stations and about 4 blocks from the White House. Gave a 4 because we'd had a problem with the a/c in the suite, and had asked the front desk to send someone up when we were out. It was still warm when we returned, but they sent someone up right away when we called and they fixed it quickly. The room had two a/c units so it cooled down quickly.

Great location

Would recommend Thu, Aug 4, 2011
The hotel was within walking distance to everything I wanted to see. Room service breakfast was good. My room was a bit small but it was just me so it wasn't a big deal. One night my neighbors were a bit loud and you could hear every thing they said through the air vent in the room. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I would stay there again. My only real complaint was the room needed a refrigerator.

Money saver

There is a CVS near Thomas circle right before you get back to the hotel. It came in handy after walking all day. For drinks, sunburn cream, snacks, and anything you may have forgotten to pack.

Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous

Would recommend Tue, Aug 2, 2011
My husband, son, and I decided to go on a quick two day trip from NY to DC and we had a fantastic time. The bus trip from NY to DC was okay...but by the time we arrived at the hotel...we were expecting an okay visit..but the hotel was great....from the minute we entered the hotel lobby we were treated with great courtesy. Our reservations were handled well...we were sent up to our very clean and well prepared room. The kitchen was clean and all the essentials were provided for us...we shopped at a supermarket just blocks away and we were able to prepare dinner that evening and eat a family meal in the dining area...this was followed by a nice bath for our toddler who enjoyed the shower/bath combo experience...while my husband relaxed on the very comfy sofa and watched sports...eventually, we all relaxed and fell fast asleep on what was a very comfortable and clean king size bed. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone with a family...and a desire to be located in walking distance of it all...it's just a short train ride to the Smithsonian...I will definitely be back again...perhaps on another quick vacation get-a-way for the family...or with the girlfriends. THANK YOU BEACON!!!

Shopping hint

There is no need to pack snacks and food. Just bring along a tote bag and go shopping at the local supermarket a few blocks away...also there is a drug store for other needs less than two blocks from the hotel...all you need to bring is your family and your reservations

Beacon Hotel DC

Excellent, sunny room. Great location near Dupont Circle.

Time saver

Leave plenty of time if you need to get a taxi in downtown DC. They are hard to get during rush hour.
