Beacon Hotel & Corporate Quarters

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is very nice, good location and the room was great. The staff at the front desk however were unfriendly and never smiled. The reservation included a bottle of sparkling wine in the package but because it was booked through a third party (Orbitz) they wouldn't deliver the wine. The desk staff argued with me about it and demanded to see proof, like I was making it all up. Very rude and disappointing.

Great Location near downtown. Just a short Metro or Uber ride to all the popular sites...

friendly staff- good location- great hotel- we liked it.

I have been staying at this hotel for over 15 years. Great location and convenient to Dupont Circle. Staff is always very friendly. Check in and out is always easy and quick. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

Great location! Great Hotel! Definitely will be back. Close to any shops, restaurant, and bars! Area was very upscale!!!!

Excellent hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable spacious room with lots of amenities. Perfect location for sightseeing.

I came into town for a friends birthday and needed a place to stay for one night. This hotel was perfect. Very convenient, close to two Metro stations, shopping and short walk to Dupont Circle and very reasonably priced. Nice size room, spacious bathroom, and has a small kitchenette. My room was quiet and very clean. My only wish was that the rooftop stayed open longer. I would stay here again.

We checked in very late in the evening, as planned. It was easy, but the desk manager was not a pleasing person. The room was ok - as expected, and kept clean for us very nicely. The cleaning crew were very nice to talk to. Use of the Business center was important to us and was satisfactory, but phone reception was impossible down there; validating access to accounts using the phone (like you may do with Yahoo) is tricky and requires two people with one running upstairs (elevator). We ate once at the Beacon Bar and Grill. The food was pleasant, expensive, and they made special arrangements outside their normal hours; we didn't expect it to be out of the norm, though. The Beacon Hotel is very convenient to the city, especially to some of the foreign embassies. It is easy to walk to nearby locations of interest and the Metro. A car would be a problem rather than a benefit, and cost excessively for parking. I would recommend the hotel to people with a limited budget and cost savy plan.

Like in every big city, parking is not available in the hotel facilities, therefore, you need to park in a different location and pay for parking (nothing unusual in DC area).

The Beacon was wonderful and very convenient to train station. I arrived early and was able to check in and drop my bag before heading to a meeting. Staff was professional and efficient. Upon return, my room was waiting, and comfortable on a hot day. The AC was perfect. The orientation of the room was convenient, minimal bathroom space and maximum room space. I overlooked Rhode Island, and despite traffic, the room was silent. Just an excellent stay all the way around.

I had a good stay with good service. This is a good value option. Good quality for the money.

Terrible check inn experience, I room was reserved but was not under the person's name. She have to wait many hour to access the room. LESSON LEARNED add the name of the person into the reservation list.

TRASH !!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! !!!!!!!

An average hotel. Not terrible but also not the best. Some updated rooms, must swipe room key to access floors on elevators.

The all round experience was good. Clean rooms and nice staff.

The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating. The room definitely needed updating though. Part of the window was taped with duct tape and there were quite a few gashes in the walls/ceiling. The bathroom did not have any counter space, it was a pedestal type sink which was extremely inconvenient being a woman. There was however a nice desk/sitting area right outside the bathroom with a large mirror where I was able to do my hair/makeup. The room was loud at night - quite a bit of noise on the street and in the hallway. Had to call the lobby to get the safe working and a new iron since it did not work at all.

The hotel is in a great location. The beds were really comfortable but the bathrooms need updating. The shower had terrible water pressure. The weekend champagne brunch is excellent and great value for money. Overall a really great stay. I'll definitely be back.

room small and dark. convenient location. But ok for a short stay. Didn't use any hotel amenities so cannot comment. Staff very polite and helpful.

The Beacon has become my favorite hotel in DC. It is close to everyone and everything. I highly recommend it!

My first trip to DC so location was a key in my decision.

Thank you so much for staying at the Beacon Hotel. It sounds like you had a great stay and we certainly hope your friend's birthday celebration was fun for everyone involved. One of the best things about the hotel's neighborhood is that there are plenty of great late night places for you to get a drink any day of the week.

good location at a good price

I am terribly sorry but it seems like there has been a misunderstanding. The hotel does offer 24 hour, secure, valet parking for vehicles under 6 feet for a minimal fee. Please don't hesitate to speak to Guest Services should you have any questions regarding your stay. We look forward to welcoming you and your vehicle (should you choose to drive) back.
