Excellent experience

Posted Nov 30, 2016
Check in effortless with friendly/helpful desk staff Laura for five day stay. I needed a small fridge, she got it theer in half an hour. Room had nice view, very clean, bath well equipped, lots of closet space. Lobby staff always greeted. Maybe only my room but wall seemed paper thin as I got couple of hours of neighbors tv, mentioned to desk on way out, never heard a peep after. Didn't eat or drink at hotel, crazy early closing hours (by Calif. standards) but it's an easy walk to restaurants, coffee houses and most places of interest. Booked enough in advance and got great Expedia discount. Good place to stay.

Pictures don't meet reality

Posted Nov 23, 2016
Cons: Current real photo of what room really looks like!
The Beacon is located in a good place for walking but it ends there! Upon booking my stay through Expedia and receiving a confirmation of the total cost for my 4-night stay,I arrive just to find out that they also charge $300.00 additional charges to your account and it is placed on hold for up tp 2 weeks. I argued about the additional fees I was not aware of, they pointed to some clause on my I itinerary from Expedia indicating only that they could! not would charge 100. per day. I asked why the added fees and was told in case I charge for room service or drink their $25.00 bottle of water available in your room. or use Vallet parking. I had plans to use none of the above but was told still had to pay. This hurt my budget dramatically during my stay even went a day without eating due to budget, I'm also still waiting on release of my funds

Location location location

When we checked in, we were early, before check in time. The woman behind the desk said she would look to find us a room. We had no issue waiting. She sent us up to a room that had 2 double beds. My girlfriend and I were in town for my birthday and had booked a queen. Checking our reservation comfirming we had booked a queen, I went back down to the desk. I explained and said I didn't mind waiting. The manager came around the corner with no interest in even addressing me, completely unprofessional, and just barked that "well I know we are out of queens" as he walked off into the back. I smiled at the desk and just insisted that I would be happy when they found me an room that would accommodate my request. They sent me back up with a new room number. This was an elevator shaft room, indeed with a queen, however it's what we used to called a "midget room". It's space is eaten up by the way it's placed, in this case by an elevator shaft. No worries, it was nice and cozy so we went about our agenda in the city. While getting ready I noticed the AC unit wasn't working. Called in a fix because I like it cold when I sleep. It never did work right during our stay.

First class hotel and staff. Key card issues.

Posted Nov 22, 2016
Pros: Location, outside environment, condition of the facilities and cleanliness.
Cons: Key cards.
Location: Stayed here as it was close to my son's apartment. Metro is not too far, plenty of places to eat but still felt very friendly.
The hotel and staff are excellent. Rooms and facilities very clean and comfortable. The only issue I had was with the room key cards. They seemed to fail to work often. I would gladly stay at this hotel any time I am in DC

Thanks so much for staying at the Beacon Hotel. We love hearing that you had a great stay as a guest of ours. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the key cards, they usually get demagnetized when they go through security machines such as the ones at most museums and government buildings throughout the city. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to D.C.!

Ehhh

Posted Nov 21, 2016
Staff was rude in trying to rush me off of the phone... Called at check-in... room wasn't ready. Pulled up to the hotel an hour after check in wasn't ready. Booked an accessible room, received a regular room... so many different hidden fees and charges before I even showed up...

Lo mejor que tiene es la ubicación.

Posted Nov 17, 2016
A mitad de camino entre las oficinas y Georgetown, la ubicación es ideal. Muy buen precio para WDC. Razonablemente limpio. El personal fue muy amable pero me robaron dinero de la habitación mientras no estaba.
