We had layered on 3 days in DC since we were on the East Coast for vacation, and the Washington Plaza seemed to fit the bill in terms of location to the mall, and a cool little neighborhood with plenty of bars and restaurants. Being from L.A., all of our trips tend to focus around walking everywhere and being able to escape being trapped in a car, and as a result, we tend to come back rather haggard from a full day of walking miles upon miles. This did not disuede the staff from treating us with just excellent friendly service. I appreciate thoughtful, efficient, genuine people that are good at what they do.
The room itself was spotless, and the bed was super comfortable. A comfortable bed is like getting free parking in Los Angeles-you don't know how important it is until it doesn't exist. Having plowed through 3 museums in one day and walked all they way home, the air conditioning and comfortable bed made a huge difference in my aching, tired feet. The showers always had hot water and the towels never looked old or dingy. The room was not huge but compared to European standards, it was perfect and I didn't feel like I was going to stub my toe on the wall as I get out of bed. Additionally, one of the other notable interactions I had was the cleaning staff actually giving me a friendly greeting as I was leaving for a day of sightseeing (yes, we left a bit late, but I'm on vacation!). They also supplied us with complimentary bottles of water everyday and a paper. If we go back to DC, I'm definitely staying here. In comparing pricing for centrally located hotels, they are more than fair.
