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.
Nice clean hotel close everything!! Easy to walk around to all the major sites!
I got this room very last minute for a good deal AND I had $52 in Orbucks so combined that. I was already in DC for work and needed another night on my own dime. I've been here for brunch and events before and remember it being cute. The room was ok - nothing to complain about. Not big, not small, decent view and to the point. At some point after turning the heat on a strong smell of a terrible and hot fart of a fresh dump started coming through the vents. I called the front desk and they said they would send someone. That took a while and by the time he came, the smell wasn't as strong since I'd opened the window. Later on the smell happened again coming through the heating vent again. I'm not sure what it was, but since response time is sooooo slow I knew by the time I called for maintenance the smell wouldn't be strong anymore. They may have thought it was me. It wasn't. They should get that checked out. I was in room 616.
Really one thing after another. The air conditioning in my room broke. They tried to fix it but it did not work. I was moved to another room. The remote control battery died on the second night - needed to be replaced. The staff generally was hot and cold. Some were really fantastic - welcoming etc. While others were actually unpleasant or rude.
Everything about The Beacon is good. It's certainly not fancy, but for the price, it's hard to find a better value in DC. I've stayed here a dozen times for business and will return again.
I got a suite which looked big in pictures but turned out to be small and tight. Also the wifi kept disconnecting, I had to connect if every time I used my phone. The hotel is very quiet which might be great for some people. They don't tolerate the slightest bit of noise. This isn't really a big deal but you have to use your room key to get the elevator to work. I had to swipe my key several times before the elevator moved which got annoying sometimes.
I wasn't in the hotel very long as I only stayed one night and was in town for a show and a rally. But, the 8 hours I spent sleeping and getting ready in the morning was good. I thought it was great that there was a kitchen for such a reasonably priced room. I'd definitely stay here again if I were in town for a longer stay. The blue and red line metros were about 3 city blocks away, which was just close enough. Cabs regularly pull up in front of the hotel if you prefer to get around that way.
Got to hotel at 1pm on a Friday, 2 hrs before usual check in time. Requested a room on upper floor for quiet. Front desk did that plus upgraded my single room to a double with kitchen. Room was very quiet and I could sleep well. Location is good with 3 metro stops within 10 min walk. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Did not eat there. Food seemed high priced.
I have stayed at the Beacon before and enjoy the spacious rooms, great value, and location. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
