This was a great location, if you want to sightsee, we had a good time and the staff was very helpful. When we checked in we were given a free upgrade. Our king size bed with a kitchenette was comfortable and clean. A great place for a good price.

the first good impression i got from this hotel is their friendly and accomodating staff... they tried their best to give us a room a few hours early than their usual check-in time. it was impressive because they have full booking at that time... the hotel looks good and the room is comfy. my family got a double bed room...

This hotel is very convenient, just a block off of Conn. Ave near Dupont Circle. But it is not a fancy place. The room was clean, but really almost too small for 2 people. The front desk staff often seemed to be bothered when asked questions. The exclaimed roof top bar was closed for the week. The walls were very... More

We booked this hotel 3 months prior directly with the hotel for a really good deal. Our room had a King bed with kitchenette that even had a dishwasher and stove. It also had a sitting room with couch that pulled out for another bed. We had a decent view with 2 flat screen tv's. The metro is just a... More

Great location and beautiful facility. My room was set up very conveniently for logistics. Issues: lamp on desk had no power; one plug positioned on the lamp was missing. There was just an empty socket. The other plug had no power. Source of problem: non-working electrical outlet under the desk. I lost four possible plugs for recharging various devices. The... More

We were in a kitchenette room with two doubles - there were three of us (me and my two adult daughters) and we had no problem. The hotel is clean and safe, and the staff are helpful. We loved the location and the price was a really great value. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed here for 3 nights as our last point of call is USA. All in all happy with the hotel. It's in a good central location, we walked pretty much everywhere. The hotel itself is a bit dated but very adequate in everything. The rooms are a good size, we had a very large room with a separate lounge room... More

The Beacon Hotel is located in close proximity to lots in DC. The Hotel staff was very cordial. The room was smallish…the bathroom was claustrophobic. We tried Priceline for the first time and ended up at the Beacon for an ok rate…not great…but parking is $49 + tax a night so you pay no matter what….Used UBER for the first... More

For downtown DC, the rate was very good - I should have been wary. The hotel itself is in a prime location, close to transportation to anyplace you might want to go. While checking in, I was struck by the minuscule sized-lobby, however, the lobby was gargantuan compared to the size of the room we were given. To say it... More

The Beacon was actually a lovely hotel. It was cleaner than most hotels I have visited. Only complaint is the parking fee. We chose to park our vehicle in the 1615 M Street, NW garage (not far at all). The fee for three days was still less than the Beacon's ONE day fee for parking. Other than that the stay... More
