Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Rooms are nicely renovated. Rooms are clean and spacious. Service desk personel are a little slow to be honest must be something in the water lol. Heat was not working properly but didnt feel like changing rooms so broke out the long johns lol. Shower is hot and water pressure is good. Price was reasonable and was a good experience overall. I would recommend.

This hotel is great! The King Suite is exceptional and worth every penny! The full size refrigerator and kitchen, along with the gas fireplace made this a home away from home. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was conveniently located near Dupont Circle and close to all foreign embassies (I work in international affairs and am in DC to meet with foreign diplomats).

Be sure to say hi to Kingsley at the front desk! He was awesome and went above and beyond to be of service to me and my colleague.

Room Tip: Get the King Suite!

These are the friendliest and most helpful staff you will encounter in Washington DC. They are so helpful and get to know their guests. The front desk is between the entrance and the elevators so you walk by them often. I also appreciate the small, quite TV room off to the side. It is much calmer that huge noisy lobbies.

I am now a big fan of this hotel. The front desk employees are fabulous. They are friendly and service oriented. They made the trip unforgettable. The only delinquency was that the hotel charge for Internet and $35 for parking. The manager said that it was the lowest for this part of DC. Free Internet will be great. The rooms we stayed in was really nice. The location was good also. Kingsley and Steve were great.

First time ever at this hotel and it was worth very dime. The front desk staff was very nice. The weekend was wonderful. We arrived and from that moment everything was just as easy as " Just Ask" and we will can it done. Never once did we hear someone say no. The room was spacious and clean. Sunday Brunch was the best. It is so much fun. We did not have a reservation but the Assistant General Manager give me his card and told me to ask for the restaurant manager and we will take care of us. As soon as we got there we show the card and with in minute we were seated. I am in love with the brunch. Parking is expensive but the place is amazing. It should be rank high as compare to other hotel in DC. Thank you Beacon Hotel Staff.

Room Tip: Suite with 2 bed are very large. Central heating and cooling unit. Make reservation for Sunday Brunc...

I'm not sure if its' the room we got, but our heater was so loud and kept going on and off - I didn't sleep much. Pull out sofa uncomfortable. a LOT of noise from the halls kept us up. I did get this room from Priceline and saved 20% ... but it was no bargain. And of course, no parking - so an extra $35 night to park the car underground. Next trip to DC will definitely be staying elsewhere... thought it would be fun to be "downtown" but was not a comfortable trip.
