4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was a nice place for a family to stay. We booked the double double suite with kitchen but got a king suite with kitchen instead but it was still good for us and our kids. Enough room for us and the kitchen is really useful with kids so you don't have to spend as much money out at restaurants.... More

This hotel is reasonably located (1mi to the Mall), clean and new, top quality service, excellent bedding. However, valet parking is $41 plus a garage charge on top of this, perhaps the going rate in DC? We had a reservation that included half price valet, which the check in attendant verbally confirmed on checkin to me, but when my husband... More

We are normally a Holiday Inn Express, Hampton Inn type family when go on vacation, but this hotel offered the best price for the value of any hotel I could find. We were not disappointed!!! Upon arrival to DC our flight arrived earlier than expected and when we got to the hotel several hours before check in we never expected... More

I stayed during a business meeting. Hotel was clean, room was very pleasant and staff was very friendly. It was easy to do the check in and out. Breakfast was very good! (From menu, no buffet). Two minor problems: bathrooms needed a bit of update (shower was leaking and toilet did not work very well, but it did its job).... More

I would give this hotel a 3.5 star rating if possible. It's no means a 3 star but the same time far away from a 4 star. The lobby is beautiful and the front lobby workers are beyond great. They open the door for you, will assist you with any questions, etc. The room we stayed in was a King... More

I checked in late and my room wasn't ready but management took care of the situation right away. For the inconvenience they gave me free Wi-Fi, which I think should be free in this day and time.

I arrived in the evening but still light out. It was hard to get to the entrance with a car but the valet was good. I was turned off for two reasons right off. One was that I booked the room through hotels.com and the credit card on file was no longer good due to my card being compromised and... More

Chose this location primarily because it is across the street from the Philippines embassy which I wife needed to visit to renew her passport. The location turned out to be great. The hotel is quiet and the Metro stations are only a few blocks away. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit older and slightly worn... More

Overall, we had a pretty good stay. The staff was mostly polite and the room was clean. The biggest complaint about the room was the noise. The walls seem to be pretty thin, and there was quite a bit of noise from the adjacent room. The location is very good, with the National Mall being a 10-15 minute walk away.... More

Thank you for staying at the Beacon Hotel, we sincerely apologize there was a misunderstanding with the AAA discount. Our relationship with AAA allows for the parking discount to be valid only when you book the AAA rate through the hotel directly.
