Better than average overall and a good value if you book on-line. I think I read every review on TravelAdvisor and Yelp. Yes, the location is great because you have easy access to the Farragut North & West Metro lines. It's on Rhode Island, just off M St & Connecticut. I booked a Queen room for a Sunday night on...

Excellent hotel and accommodation. Great staff! Vintage feel, quiet, clean and close to shops and historical sights! Their restaurant is very good! My first time to DC and I could not have asked for a better experience! I would recommend the Beacon! Thank you!

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Even though it is a cheap hotel, it doesn't really worth it. It is far below average and I would recommend it only for students that want to spend some cheap/good time in DC. Definitely NOT for couples or families. The common areas as well as the room, furniture and fixtures have... More

As the name suggests, the rooms are designed to be quarters rather than those of a hotel. Having said that, they are decently well-maintained, well equipped (ours had a large fridge, microwave and stove + utensils). It is well located (15-20 min walk to the White House and the National Mall). The area itself is very quiet, since the neighbourhood... More

Located at the heart of the city and not too far from the underground, the hotel is in close reach of underground train as also the White House. The rooms are slightly congested but is compensated by its location. The front office is small. The dinning hall is on the ground floor and is ok.

I am actually pretty disappointed in my hotel stay.I purchased a special package (DC cool) so when I arrived, I would be able to have a welcome cocktail.

I am sorry we failed in having your cocktails on a timely basis, and I will look into the matter so we can prevent it from happening.
