The Beacon Hotel is in a beautiful area. It is about three blocks from the Metro Station. It is also within a half a mile of the White House. The room was small but very clean and nice. One wall was a floor to ceiling window.

My husband and I just got back from our weekend trip to DC. The prices for neighboring hotels were outrageous, so we ended up here due to the lower price and location. It was in a nice location close to Farragut station. It was about a 15 min walk to the White House and other museums. The room was good.... More

Easy Uber ride from Reagan. No shuttle. Central location. Small room with kitchenette. Bathrobe. Dated but clean. Wanted $100. per day deposit for incidentals. I paid 50. only. Restaurant and bar nice and priced locally high. Would stay again because of location.

On 4/4/15 I made reservations for a trip in October for the Marine Corp Marathon. Five days later I attempted to cancel my reservation due to friends staying at a different hotel..the cancellation policy claims only 24 hrs notice. My request was refused and my credit card charged the stay, again six months prior. I then asked to speak with... More

This hotel was great. The staff was courteous and attentive and the location was GREAT! The only reason I'm giving this hotel "very good" is because of 2 things: the A/C and dust! The A/C unit is like a wall unit, only larger and quirkier. It shoots hot air sometimes, and VERY cold air other times. Random! The fact that... More

From the moment we arrived until we had to leave, we had a wonderful stay at the Beacon. Shout out to Anthony for giving us superior service. Just wish the roof top bar was open - would have loved sit up there and see the sights. Great location, clean, friendly staff.

I stayed at the Beacon Hotel in April, 2015 for 2 nights on business. When I booked my trip the hotel was one of the only available in downtown DC that had a room at the standard federal government rate, so I didn't have many options and did not have high expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was... More

Overall, this was a perfectly fine place to stay as a family for a DC trip. We have teens, which made the walk to all the sights reasonable (less than a mile to the White House, probably no more than 2 miles max to the other sights.) That said, the metro in DC doesn't easily go to all the tourist... More

I stayed in the 'Beacon Hotel and Corporate Quarters' as it calls itself this April 2015. As soon as my cab pulled up I thought 'Uh oh'. I was staying for 4 nights on business and it was booked primarily because of its proximity to DuPont Circle and the offices I could get to on foot quickly. Well, location is... More

My husband and I bid on a weekend stay at the Beacon through our local PBS station. It was hectic at the check in desk and the clerk did not provide all the information we needed to take advantage of all the items we were entitled to on our gift certificate. This was resolved when we went down later and... More
