I stayed at this hotel over the weekend and I couldn't believe how terrible the service was. It was actually my first time in d.c so we were looking to have a good time, and from begining to end it bad.We arrived late and didn't know where to park we were kept on hold for over ten minutes so we...

You will never realize what bad hospitality is like unless you stay at this hotel. Everyone is completely disrespectful and the hotel policies themselves like the requirement that you have to pay for wifi daily are absolutely absurd. You should stay at a cheap hotel instead of this hell hole where they include wifi, have nicer rooms and treat you... More

I guess that all of the good reviews for this hotel are due to its location and, maybe, for the convenience of its meeting rooms, but I honestly doubt that they are a consequence of hospitality or cleanliness. Except for a receptionist, the staff is unpleasant, starting with the one that meets you at the door, continuing with those at... More

I expected this hotel to be a typical budget hotel based on the price that I paid for the two nights (Fri and Sat) I could not have been more wrong. The rooms are spacious and clean with all mod cons. The location of the hotel is perfect for sightseeing - 10 minute walk to the White House. Its also... More

We stayed five nights at the Beacon for work and for play. The location was convenient, the room was large and clean and functional (we had a room with kitchenette). The rooms were well priced. The bed provided good rest. The gym at the YMCA across the street was a good option. More than anything, the staff at the Beacon... More

Very clean and comfortable. We stay here for three days. The staff were friendly and courteous. Denise and Marcus were very helpful. Location is close to the metro and tour bus stop. I like the room. Will be back and will definitely be staying at the Beacon. It was great and the experience is one to remember because of the... More

To start off, UGH!!! New Year's Eve here was bananas in the worst way. Understandably they were busy because of a huge private party that was being held at the hotel, BUT there is absolutely no excuse for some of the poor displays of customer service we received. The other guests in my room arrived after me with all of... More

This was our 4th stay and we brought our grown children this time. Great location and great property. We love the service and restaurant and bar. Richard and Jim (at the bar) were wonderful, as usual :) Rooms comfortable and service was great! Thank you for another wonderful visit to DC!

My friend and I stayed here during their NYE party. A few days before, when calling to correct some information for my reservation, I was put on hold for nearly 30 minutes. I had to hang up twice and call back before finally getting a representative. That should have been my first sign to book somewhere else. Upon arrival (8pm);... More
