  • Group of friends

    the room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable

    I booked a double bed and when we got there they said they didn't have a room with a double bed at the discount price. I had to pay an extra $10 to get a room with a double bed!!!!!!

  • Group of friends

    I thought the beds were comfortable and the location fine for where I needed to be within the city most of my trip. The staff when we checked in was friendly.

    The rooms were not what I expected for the price I was paying. I did not feel relaxed in my room and I did not feel that there were any value- adds they woud make me choose the Beacon over other hotels in the area.

    Hotel staff should not arranged check in earlier when the rooms are avaiable ,they are just giving reason ,the house keeping not yet come

  • Single

    There was a party next to my room. I could not sleep. I had to call security. The room was not so clean. I believe the sheets were used by another costumer. There was not a shower cup in the room. The heather could not be adjusted. The clerk service was not very polite and efficient. I am kind of disappointed . A business hotel, well located. Good for one night, and I believe it does not deserved the cost $350 or so per night,. I would not come back neither recommend it.

    Well located. A business hotel. Neat view from my room.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    It was a very large room and my one call to housekeeping was answered very, very quickly.

    The temperature in the room was impossible to regulate and it was really hot most of the time. Also, there were a few guests of the hotel who were loud - they were slamming doors and stopping on the floor early Sunday morning.

    This was my first visit to D.C. so I especially appreciated how close to everything I was from the Beacon. Also I felt safe and comfortable there.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Location was ideal for all tourist attractions. Many Cafe, Deli's and Restaurants within a few minutes walk

    Our room smelt of cigarette smoke on our last night as it was coming through the vents!

    Great price for a clean, efficient, and stylish hotel.

  • Single

    The location was great and the front desk staff very professional. The rooms were very clean.

    The bar/restaurant service was horrible. Evening of January 13, 2011. The young female bartender was very unprofessional and we waited too long all night long. The restaurant was not busy enough to justify the very slow service. The only thing the she was good at was giving a bad attitude.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The best thing was its location nearby M street where we found beautiful nightlife, also the services were very good.

    the heating system is old one having a floor type fan coil unit inside the room and not functioning properly all the time also it was noisy.
