“December 31”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

December 31 we checked into the Beacon for the New Year's Eve event. We had tickets in advanced. The hotel and the entire staff are great. They were amazing during and after the event. The hotel was very cleaned. The room was large with lot of counter space for drink with a full kitchen. Getting into the event was very easy. We party all night with not a single problem. This was one of the best hotel party . A late check out 1pm was truely appreciated after partying till 4 am. I will be back on December 31. Thanks to the wonderful staff.

My partner and I booked this hotel because of the advertised NYE party/room package. I live in Baltimore and I'm familiar with the location on the hotel in DC becuz we hang out and party in the area. I figured with the awesome package deal and location I couldnt go wrong....and I was correct!! We arrived early to check in and im glad we did becuz the valet parking situation was a little unorganized but everything else was uphill from there. The room was very nice and very roomy. WE EVEN HAD A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE ON ICE WAITING FOR US WHEN WE OPENED THE DOOR ;) We opted to take a walk for a pre-party dinner and ran right into Vapianos (I love this place!!). After eating we took a short walk to a CVS near by, turned the corner and ran right into a Krisy Kreme, Panera Bread and Starbucks!!!! Awesome!!!!
We returned to the hotel and had a GREAT TIME at the NYE party. Everyone was dressed nice, the music was great and there was a bar at every turn. Man...we had a ball. No violence....no drama -just FUN!
We upgraded to a 3pm check out the next day which was NEEDED cuz we partied til almost 4am. THE FRONT DESK STAFF WAS AMAZING!! I would definately stay here again.

Wow checked in for the New Year eve party and did not get a good experience at first, but the staff later made it up. The first room we had was not the right type and they quickly changed our room. The staff were very very helpful with parking. The party was a blast. It was a fun night. We had a good time. The staff give us a late check-out at 1pm. The room we ended staying in was way better, larger and comfortable for me and my friends. I later spoke with the manager who was very nice and toke his time to explained to me the extra security measured they had in place. They authorized your credit card for $100 and you must registered all the occupant in your room. You must also use your room key to access the elevator. I think it was all worth it as I felt safe with my friends. This is a great hotel and I will stay if I ever have to. The best hotel staff in DC. Stay at the Beacon and you will get your money worth.

The Beacon is a small jewel set in the very convenient and safe neighborhood of the DuPont Circle - lots of restaurants, a Whole Foods and CVS close by. A bit too cold when I was there to hike to the Mall area, but the buses are easy to catch and the Metro not far, so access to the Mall and other sights is easy. As a bonus, the room had a fridge, microwave and stove, so on Christmas Day when a lot of restaurants shut down and it was too cold to wander outside, I was able to prepare a cozy feast in the quiet and warmth of the room. And, great price for the security, convenience and ambience. I will defintely make it my D.C. home when I'm there.

Room Tip: I did not check out the pool or the spa - not enough time!

Location was the reason I booked the Beacon. We wanted to stay in a section of the city that was not too far from the major attractions with access to public transportations. We also wanted to make sure that we were in a safe neighborhood and that price was not too high. The Beacon offered it all. The staff are extremely friendly. An outstanding group of people. Our room was spacious. The suite had a kitchen which was good if we were staying longer. After we check out they stored our luggage and help arranged a cab to the airport. We forgot some items and it was immediately sent to me. We would definitely return if we are in DC.
