As a college student on a research trip, saving money was my top priority! This hotel was cheap for DC while still affording an excellent location, great service, clean rooms, and safe. So often with cheaper hotels you lose those features, but the Washington Plaza is an excellent hotel for anyone to stay at. I saw families, couples, people on business, and people of every age group and nationality. It's about a 5 minute walk from the hotel to the nearest metro stop and luckily there are plenty of places to get coffee along the way! There are also nice restaurants for various budgets nearby.
What was probably my best experience with the staff happened when my mother, who had joined me for a few days, lost her camera. We had signed up for a night tour of DC that was supposed to pick us up in front of the hotel. Unfortunately for us, there was another tour company picking other people up at our hotel. That tour company told us they were our bus, but after we had gotten on the bus our real tour company called and told us that we were not on the right bus at all. In our hurry to get off, my mother forgot her camera. When we told the staff they helped us figure out what tour company bus we had gotten on (we had NO idea which one it was other than that it had DC in the title), and helped us get our camera back. Not every hotel would do that.
