The extra costs make this extremely poor value - yes, it's a good location but being charged for wifi access (which should be included, considering the price of the room) and the exorbitant parking costs make it rather overpriced. I'll definitely stay elsewhere next time.

I brought my son to DC for his 18th birthday. The hotel is close to everything without being in the center of it. I know DC pretty well, so for us this was the perfect location. They upgraded us to a suite because of the 5 night stay at no charge. I absolutely love this property. Staff is friendly and... More

Found this hotel on tTravel Zoo. It was in the center of the city, a nice walk to the White House and monuments. When we arrived we were upgraded to a Jr Suite and no charge. We enjoyed our stay at the Beacon Hotel and will return.

I have stayed at the Beacon Hotel twice now and have enjoyed both stays. In January of 2014 I was upgraded to a suite from my original reservation at no additional charge. This past August, my room was inadvertantly downgraded and I received a refund on the difference of the room rate with no fuss. Housekeeping was thorough and good.... More

Found the Beacon on Travel Zoo. It was a good stay overall. Had an issue with the AC but a technician came up within minutes to fix it. Wish we had more time to experience more of the amenities. It was a pleasurable time though. We also received a complementary breakfast that was tasty. Definitely will keep the Beacon in... More

Good: A perfect location with a short walking distance to the Convention Center, landmarks, restaurants, subway stops (Farragut North and Dupont Circle) and grocery (Whole Foods). Room: very clean and fresh bed. The staff reacted to two reported complains (but there was more of them). All staff greeted us as we them too. NOT SO GOOD: We have prepaid more... More

Not the newest hotel in DC but overall very clean with hard-to-beat location. Staff at front desk was friendly and accommodating. The "Jr. Executive Suite" included a comfortable queen bed, pull out sofa and small kitchen.

The room was smaller than I thought it would be, but overall it was nice. My wife and I dined at the hotel restaurant, and after I had eaten most of my chicken close to the bone I noticed a rotten smell. It turns out my chicken was spoiled. They offered to serve me something else, but at that point... More

The hotel was reasonably priced and within walking distance from most of the historical sites. The staff were friendly but the basic rooms didn't have a fridge, which would have been my only complaint. There is a restaurant attached but their food was just okay, so many other places nearby that I would just skip that.

My family and I traveled to DC for my mom's birthday. We stayed at the Beacon for 5 nights. I have mixed feelings about this hotel because it is a good hotel but we ran into terrible issues. First the good: - The hotel is perfectly located between two main red line stations (Farragut North and Dupont). It is two... More
