For quite a few years since leaving D.C. (where I lived for many years) we have been staying at The Beacon for both personal and business trips back to the nations capital. I discovered it several years ago when they offered a very good military rate. This hotel used to be called, "The Governor's House" years ago but was bought and renovated by a different company. The locale of the hotel is super! It's located at 17th and Rhode Island NW near Dupont and close to pretty much everything you need and very Metro accessible.
The service is always spot on and they staff always goes to that extra friendly length to ensure you are taken care of during your stay. With D.C. services known for the unfriendly service in many cases, this hotel will be the opposite of that in most cases.
We always opt for one of the few Turret Suites in the rounded corner of the hotel. It's "25" room in case you're inquiring, meaning, 525, 625, 725, etc. I always ask for room 725 if available (which it was for our most recent visit). It's tucked away from everything and very comfortable and quiet. We noticed that some of the furniture had been recently updated with Mitchell Gold furnishings which is pretty high end stuff.
It's worth noting that the wireless internet in the suites/rooms works great! In many hotels the signal can be patchy and you end up waiting most of the time but we noticed that it was fast and didn't have any problems.
We highly recommend this hotel as it has everything you need...good service, good location in the city, decent food, a bar and very comfortable beds and surroundings. Whether you go for one of the Turret Suites or just the basic room or junior suite, you'll love it here!
