Ended up staying at this hotel last minute for 1 night, as we were set to take a train out of DC and wanted to get ahead of a winter storm.

We called the hotel and got the best deal available (much better than their website). They even upgraded our room!

The hotel was nice, clean, and we found the staff even at 1am when we checked in to be attentive and friendly.

Parking was expensive, but you can't fault them for it. It's expensive everywhere - that's parking in DC. You don't want to pay it then don't bring a car! It's that simple.

No complaints with this hotel. Simple, modern style. I'd love to come back in warmer weather to check out the relaxing pool. DC is a great place and this hotel had a wonderful location.

If you don't mind walking a little bit, the location is handy to the White House and other sights, it's about 10 minutes' walk to the White House. However, some of the neighbourhood to the north and east are a bit less than desirable. We took a walk to the nearest supermarket, which was about 5 minutes away, and it was in a really bad area of town, which felt really unsafe. Otherwise good value and good location for tourists. Just don't go any further north or east.

We stayed at the Washington Plaza for three nights. Great location; it's within walking distance of all the major sights (on the mall) and some great restaurants and bars (on 14th St). Unlike some other reviewers, we had no problem with the (free) wifi, and our room had a large bathroom with a tub. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. The turn-down service that included a filled ice bucket and 2 bottles of water was a great surprise. We got an incredible internet/slow season rate. We had to tack on $30/ night for parking, but that is a typical parking fee in DC. I have stayed at hotels costing three times as much and have been a lot less happy! I highly recommend staying here. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant, so I'm unable to rate it.

A reasonable walk to Metro McPherson and a very clean hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were a bit small and the toilet is almost blocking the shower (no tub), but otherwise the room was OK. We used Hotels.com and got a great rate.

Room Tip: Avoid elevator areas.

I stayed at the Washington Plaza earlier this week, and was quite impressed. I rode the Metro in from Reagan Airport to the McPherson Sq. Station, a short walk to the hotel. The building looks to have been remodeled in the past coupled of years, and the service was great. Each person from the front desks attendants, bellhops, and servers in the restaurant were delightful. Every inch of the hotel was clean; the outdoor, and indoor surroundings were very well kept. I greatly enjoyed my stay, this hotel was conveniently located, friendly, clean. Also, I was over joyed to see the Washington Post waiting at my door in the morning rather than USA Today, a nice change. I would recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Washington DC.

Very nice, very clean. Great customer service. Good location. Nothing negative to say about this hotel. Appreciated the free bottled water each day. The price for the area seemed to be very competitive. I noticed many sirens at all hours of the day or night, so maybe request a room away from the street side of the building.
