Great hotel, friendly staff, close to everything!
Posted Jul 3, 2016
My husband and I stayed at the Beacon the last week in June and it was fantastic. We drove in and were immediately greeted by a very friendly doorman and porter. Our bags were unloaded and our car was taken to the garage. Because we were early, the staff held our bags for us in a locked closet and even offered us a room at that early time, but we waited because we wanted a king bed. We walked to the Metro station (less than 10 minutes) and headed down to the National Gallery. When we returned, our room was ready- a top floor corner room (I had requested privacy)- and the porter retrieved our bags and up we went. The room was fantastic. Very modern, plenty of closet/drawer space, clean, updated bathroom, etc. I was pleasantly surprised because I had read some reviews that mentioned the rooms needed "TLC" and updating. Ours was really nice. The air conditioner cooled the room to the point that we had to turn it down because we were getting too cold (!)- it was great. Housekeeping did a great job and the room was perfect each night when we returned.
The first night we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. It was really good- above average! One other night we hit the hotel bar for happy hour before going out to dinner and had several drinks while chatting with Richard, the bartender. Great guy. We walked up to the rooftop bar to check it out one evening, but it had just rained and the tables were wet so we didn't stay, but there is a great view up there.
