This is a very good hotel with a wonderful location. The staff are friendly. Overall service at the Beacon was good. They are doing some remodeling in the Hotel . The room was a decent size room and very clean. Parking is expensive.

Rooms are quiet. If you think your room is a bit too small, ask for a bigger one, they have those. Rooftop lounge is small but cosy and trendy. View is so, so. Lobby a bit too small and valet parking is $35.00 per night, which is a bit pricey. Staff could be more attentive, I think. Walking distance to...

I booked The Beacon in Washington DC because it offered a great deal for the weekend. It showed as a four star hotel, and that was what I was looking for. When arriving at the hotel, it was not exactly what I expected. I think looking at the hotel website pictures, I expected a bit more grandeur and class. It...

Our stay at the Beacon was best in all of my travel. The entire staff was welcoming. We were there for only one night but I wish we could stay longer. The room was great and the bed also. We had sufficient space. The one thing we will not forget is the bar in the Penthouse. It is a great...

They have something for everyone. Friendly staff, caring doorman, helpful housekeeper. The room was very decent with a view of a park. The location was okay for the price. It is good. Restaurants within walking distance and public transportation. Possible walking distance to the White House but difficult to the Lincoln memorial. Tour range in price from $35 -. We...
