Our room on the 7th floor was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It had nice big windows, lots of seating options, and a furnished kitchen. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was absolutely perfect! We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, and the neighborhood itself has so many interesting buildings and businesses.

This is a very nice hotel. Clean, fairly spacious, confortable bed with pelnty of pillows and in a nice spot. You need your room key to operate the elevator, which I thought was great, and added a layer of security. The air conditioning needs the key to work too, but it's not a bother, since you just leave it there... More

I booked through Expedia for an extended stay, but I had to check out early. The Beacon Hotel Manager stated I had to go through expedia for the refund, but when I called expedia, they called the hotel and talked to the Manager who would not refund. Their excuse is that I pre-paid for a fixed set of dates, no... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location for where I had to be for business meetings, but a little far from the usual tourist area than other hotels (about 1.2 mile walk to the Mall-25 min.). It's location led right onto "M" Street which is a nice walk into Georgetown and its university, the restored canal area, and some nice shopping... More

Friendly hotel staff, and restaurant food was above average, limited wine list. Rooms are clean but dated, need to upgraded. WiFi slow. Close to capitol and monuments - ideal location for a quick trip.

This is a good hotel and a good value but I give very few 5's. It is located about 3 blocks from the North Farragut Metro station. I found the staff especially helpful and friendly.

My husband and I flew into the city for one day to attend the wedding for an old and dear friend so our stay was quite short, arriving late Friday night and leaving before the sun rose on Sunday. As such we didn't spend a terribly long time in the city or acquainting outselves with the room. We booked this... More

We stayed here for the Wedding weekend at DC. It is a decent place, very conveniently located in the center of the city with an access to all major sites in Washington and it is only 20-25 min. taxi ride from Reagan Airport. The check-in was prompt. The room was clean with all the amenities of a typical business hotel... More
