The hotel wasn't big, but the rooms were nice, with a cozy lobby. The maid service was outstanding and the restaurant for breakfast , wasn't free, but very good. Shower pressure was great, and everything I needed was in the room.

While the rooms are "clean", I couldn't breathe or sleep without taking several benadryl because the bedding (mattress, pillows, etc.) and carpeting clearly has not been replaced in decades and is host to dust mites. I was very unimpressed and dismayed that such an expensive hotel is so cheap when it comes to guest well-being.

Stayed at the Beacon Hotel while attending a meeting near central DC. Even though this hotel is in a very busy part of the city, my room was very quiet. Hotel staff are very nice and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again if given the chance.

Traveled with a group on business. This hotel was booked for us by the sponsor. Lobby is small and not very impressive. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood and there are some nice amenities in the area. Getting around the hotel is a bit confusing at first, especially with the elevators in different locations. No one at the...

Extraordinary rude staff, especially the door man/bell boy. Would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. Don't waste your money or time staying at this hotel. There are much better accommodations in the DC metro area.

We were extremely disappointed that the Beacon Hotel would not work with Expedia in order to allow us to change our travel dates(April, 2017) after our family experienced a very sad death during the dates that we were to be at the hotel. Expedia has tried contacting and reaching out to the Beacon, but with no success. We lost our...

We arrived at the hotel at 10am to drop off our luggage with the concierge while we visited the sights. At 3:10pm (check in time), we came to check in - easy process with matter-of-fact staff. Got to the room to find we had two double beds. Called down to say that there was a mistake - we had booked...

Last minute trip to DC for a conference with many downtown hotels full I tried the Beacon. Found it to be just fine. Easy check in/out. Friendly staff. The room was quite nice, the king bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. It was about a 20 minute walk to the conference center but that was fine...

Thank you so much for staying at the Beacon Hotel, we hope you were able to see the Cherry Blossoms. We were a little worried this year with the weather that they wouldn't bloom like other years but they were still beautiful as always.
