Washington Plaza Hotel
Ranked #26 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Just held a professional gathering at the bar. It is large, quiet and had good service and nice food. That was my experience last year as well. The outdoor pool is one of the nicest in DC area, large and pretty, good for a swimmer like me or for kids. Saw the rooms. Not huge, true, but recently renovated and up to date. This hotel is much closer to the White House and Mall than most of the others, and most of the others that are close by are very expensive. I live here and I know them all. I will be recommending this to my friends.

Room Tip: Personally would like to face the pool but the other views would be fine too.

The hotel is about 4 blocks from the Mc Pherson Metro station so it's very convenient. Also it's on the 14th Street Restaurant and theater area so you can walk to some of the best restaurants in the city. The room had a nice size. It was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here because it was a relatively good price and relatively close to the things we wanted to see. It was okay - the room was a little small, the internet had issues from time to time, the fan didn't work in the bathroom, etc., but none of the items were "big" items. The staff was nice indeed. We only ate in the bar area restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised with it. Good food indeed. The parking under the hotel is very tight, so I was glad we had rented a Ford Escape. Driving my 3/4 ton truck or Suburban would have made for a very frustrated parking situation. But, when you consider many of the hotels do not have their own parking, again, this was not a big deal.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We picked the location because it is close to some of the attractions. Its on the fringe of the Downtown area. You can walk to the White House and some of the other attractions. We wanted to visit the memorials and museums in the area and for that the location is great. We did not eat at the hotel as we like to try some of the locates restaurants / cafes - there are plenty of places for you to eat.
Our room had a balcony overlooking the pool and Thomas Cirlce. The door to the balcony did not close properly and the room was a little small (I think this room was designed for one person).
Overall hotel was clean and the bed comfortable, its probably ideal if you are staying there for business. Other guests appears well behaved and it was quite at night which is what we seek these days. Did not see any families with kids staying at the hotel. Free wifi provided which was great. Note: The fitness centre does not have any weight machines. Mainly a couple of running machines. They have hand weights but a very limited range.
Summary - check in and check out was easy - enjoyed the stay

Located within walking distance of the convention center and lots of restaurants, this hotel is a good option for those who want to keep costs low but stay in a nice hotel. I had a 2nd floor room facing the pool with a balcony. It was great until a pool party one night was so loud I felt like I was there. The outer door does not muffle ANY sound. The bed was comfortable. The room was small, but OK for one person. I'd stay there again.

We stayed at the Washington Plaza for the weekend. Overall the hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious and well kept. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant, but did have a drink in the lounge that was very relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful.
However, one item situation is still not sitting right with me. We checked in around 3:30pm. It was a typical 90+' Washington Summer Day. A couple in thier early 20's had come down from thier room and were also at the front desk. They asked for 2 pool passes. The clerk advised them that the pool was full for the day and they were not issuing any other passes. ??? I was a bit shocked by this but my assumption was that the entire Hotel must be at the pool due to the heat.
We checked into our room that was over looking the pool and Thomas Circle. However, there were maybe 15-20 people in the pool area. There were 3 times as many empty chairs as there were occupied chairs. Not sure why the couple was turned away, but I though they needed to work on the hotels system for monitoring the pool activity.

We stayed at the Washington Plaza Hotel over the weekend. Our room was spacious and had beautiful views of the pool and Thomas Circle. There is underground parking. We didn't eat at the restaurant but we had a few drinks in the lounge. They have a decent-sized outdoor heated pool that is open in the summer. We consider this hotel to be one of our favorites in DC now.
