Washington Plaza Hotel
Ranked #27 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2012

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.

The Washington Plaza is centrally located in D.C. - near the Metro, bus lines, and easy walking distances. Newly updated - great pool - front desk is accommodating. The Plaza has its own garage, so you can park yourself, and come and go as you please, with just one fee.

We have stayed in Thomas Circle before at a different establishment and appreciated the convenient location to amenities and many restaurants. Washington Plaza ended up being a fantastic value and a great hotel. We had requested a queen size room which it appears are the smaller rooms, and were put in this very large room with a king bed and a view of Thomas Circle. The size of the room was great for a 2-night stay, spotless, and the bed was extremely comfortable! New towels, soap, and complimentary bottled water daily.

We chose a package from the website that included on-site self parking and breakfast. The price of the parking even without the package is very reasonable compared to most hotels in the city. Additionally, I'm not crazy about buffets, but I found that this buffet had very fresh options and the service in the restaurant was good. The lobby has a nice atmosphere and the outdoor pool is a plus. Sat there for a bit but then it started to thunderstorm, but they do have an outdoor bar area with food and drinks. The pool, in addition to the location, was our main reason for choosing to the hotel as it's kind of a unique amenity in DC. We were very pleased with our stay and will definitely be returning again.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with a king size bed if you're going for more than one night

We stayed at this hotel in February 2012 while we were showing my husband's out-of-country family Washington DC. The price was great, the service good. The rooms were quite small, but nicely decorated with good amenities. The food was also enjoyable, and we ordered room service for breakfast twice which was excellent! Would stay again.

It's often difficult to find a hotel without any faults but I would say this one really takes the cake. It's conveniently close to the white house and surrounding cool restaurants and bars, the service was good, the room was excellent (we faced the pool), was not noisy at all. The pool is excellent, was a very good way to cool down after walking around all day in the heat. It was recommended by Amtrak as i was booking the train ticket to DC so it may be cheaper if you book through there (can't confirm unfortunately as I didnt compare prices).

The Washington Plaza was a convenient 5 block walk from the convention centre where we attended the International AIDS Conference. Our 9th floor room was clean and comfortable, if a bit small for two. The basement gym and business centre provided all that was needed. Staff were consistently friendly and the breakfast buffet allowed for a good start to the day. Free internet and a good range of television channels add to overall good value.

We stayed here on our recent trip to DC. The hotel is very well located to lots of DC's finest tourist sights. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was any trouble.
Room was clean and we were really well looked after. Pool area is great with bar and food available for when you just want a day by the pool!
Overall we were very happy with our stay and had a great time in DC.
