Although our room was upgraded to a suite it wasn't better. The king bed was very comfortable but my son had to sleep on the fold out couch. Not comfortable, and bathroom was hard to get to with bed out.
The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Overall our stay was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone.
Selected this hotel as a part of an Expedia package deal as we were looking for a get away long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Location was great and a short walk to great restaurants, parks and the Metro line. Also, if you use the Hop on, Hop Off bus, one of their drops is Dupont Circle, just steps from the Hotel. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions to make your trip enjoyable. Michael, the concierge was fantastic and extremely helpful to us as new visitors to the city. When he heard it was our anniversary, he arranged for champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries to be delivered to our rooms. Nice touch! I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean, comfortable place, conveniently located in Washington.
Lovely stay at this boutique hotel which is also pet friendly. Good sized room and fair price- handy having a restaurant on site when you arrive tired and hungry.
The only negative was that two nights of parking was very expensive - $142.00 due to $30.00 hotel fee on top of the parking charge and tax.
We had a nice experience staying at beacon hotel. It was centrally located to all the attractions we wanted to go to and was reasonably priced for being in walking distance to the White House! The front desk was very friendly and quickly checked us in. The only thing we didn't like about the hotel was we kept having issues using our room key for the elevator and our bedroom, but this wouldn't sway us from staying here again!
First trip to Washington to commemorate a wedding anniversary. We traveled by train and walked or used public transportation. Getting from Union Station, et cetera to the Normandy was easy on the L1 or L2 bus. The Normandy staff people were friendly and helpful, e.g., showing how to use coffee-expresso-latte maker, getting change for transportation, invitation to evening wine and cheese, providing morning paper, getting location of nearby store to buy fruit and sandwiches for the return trip. When the toilet fill valve stuck, a maintenance person was there within five minutes and had it unstuck and checked in less than ten minutes. (No problem with the valve after that.) The neighborhood and room were quiet and room temperature controlled easily by wall thermostat. Towels, soap, et cetera were ample. Room was clean and bed and bedding were comfortable. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but a breakfast buffet was available. The room had television and DVD player and outlets for other electronic devices, but we did not make use of them except for the television.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
