“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I stayed 5 nights and it was wonderful. I'm a former hotel guy and a tough critic but I could not find any issues with the room or its cleanliness. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I enjoyed breakfast each morning in the restaurant and was pleased with the food and service.

Room Tip: asked for an upgrade at the time of reservation and received it.

We checked in with a Panda Package - (look on the website, great rates, 25% off the restaurant, and 50% off parking) and the first room they gave us was not the King suite we reserved. Back at the desk I complained that the room did not match the description (with kitchenette). The quickly gave us a room that was much larger than expected with a two burner stove, dishwasher, dishes, sitting room, etc. The room was very cozy and the heater warmed the room quickly. The room was fitted for handicapped, but that was not a problem. It was raining out and we decided to try the restaurant for dinner - they did an amazing job! Really great food, we went back for breakfast and that was excellent, too. One of my favorite things about the place is that it is across the street from the YMCA and we got to use the 25m lap pool for free! We only stayed one night, but I would not hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: Hotel restaurant is very good.

I stayed three days over Thanksgiving Weekend. Check-in was quick and efficient; the room was clean and comfortable: getting a corner room affords you lots of light with two walls of windows; the staff was courteous and efficient. My only quibble was with Internet access: it's an extra daily charge ($12.00 every day) and the connection was unreliable. I had to constantly keep reconnecting every few minutes. All in all though, a good choice in DC.

Staff was friendly and attentive. Room was clean. Location is ideal for walking to the Metro and White House.

In reading some of the other reviews after booking I was a little worried, however we did not experience any of the negatives mentioned in other reviews. We booked a few weeks before traveling and used Beacon's website and secured a great rate which included free internet and half price parking. Compared to other hotels in the area, the Beacon offered a better total package and room size.

I really like the location, you can walk to a lot of locations as well as the Metro. It is at the corner. The hotel staff is very helpful, especially the front desk. The rooms are updated and has everything a business traveler needs. They have above average breakfast. The above bar is busy during the weekend but not weekdays. The beds are comfortable.

This is a really nice hotel in DC. It is lovely. The staff very accommodating and helpful. Room was nice and so was the restaurant. Live my overall experience and will be back. The YMCA is next to the hotel and they offer pass to hotel guest. Public transportation in near by.
