“Very nice hotel, gracious staff”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the lighting was more than adequate, which I have found is often not the case in hotels. For someone who likes to read in bed, a good light on the bedside table really matters! The food at the hotel restaurant was very good, although breakfast was rather pricey. But the best part was the staff. Everyone from the desk clerks to the restaurant staff was friendly, accommodating and helpful. Our stay there included the Christmas holiday and it was a delight to be offered a choice of free (super delicious) hot chocolate or eggnog in the lobby on the afternoon of the 24th. We hope to stay there again on our next visit to DC.

The hotel was ok. Price was good especially for dc. When you walk in you see a nice lobby and eatery. It seems as if the hotel is in the middle of a major renovation. Customer service excellent from the time I stepped foot on the property to the time I checked out. However, entire hotel looks unfinished. Old1980's ceiling tile at front desk but in an updated modern decor lobby. Rooms: Plush beds and updated modern decor but again half done renovations. You see old school popcorn ceilings. Room and Bathroom was clean. Balcony was ok. View was great. Room service very fast. They had a person deliver ice and bottled water to each room that evening. I liked the hotel for the price and location. If your into aesthetics, I have mixed emotions. I think operations dept need to rethink where to cut corners for cost purposes but the hotel has potential to be so much more.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel during our recent trip to Washington from Queensland. All facilities are great and I was thoroughly spoilt by the staff when they found it was my birthday - special thanks to Stephen, Front desk staff and Sade. We had a yummy evening meal in the hotel restaurant (mussels are to die for). Hotel is located in a very central spot. We hope to return to Washington one day and will most certainly be choosing the Washington Plaza as our hotel of choice.

This was our 3rd stay...1997--2013. Each time the hotel delivered excellent services for very reasonable prices. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful...we cannot imagine staying anywhere else in D.C. We have recommended it to several family members and they are SO HAPPY! What else can you say? Mampefrey

This hotel is centrally located, walking distance from all major attractions in Washington; rooms are clean and even though they are small, you will be comfortable. We had a balcony view and that didn't seem to up the charges, can't complain about the price either!

We stayed for one night on Dec.21st.They have good location White House is only 1km and US Capitol 2km away so if you do not want to drive still you can go all places by walking.They have good size bed and room with all amenities except Micro.But in 5 minutes walk you can find Dunkin Donuts,Au Bon Pain which is famous for different kind of Bagel.Even CVS farmacy is also very close to this place.

Really enjoyed my stay here. It's in a good location about 10 minutes walk to the White House. Other attractions are easy to reach on foot too. The Capitol Building is about an hour's walk away, as is Arlington Cemetery. There is a 24 hour CVS pharmacy/store across the road and a Whole Foods supermarket three blocks away, although I didn't like walking in this part of town due to the number of homeless there. The staff are helpful and friendly. There's an evening service which leaves bottled water, ice, closes the curtains and puts a light on, which is a nice touch. Morning papers are provided free, as are toiletries. The room was average size, and equipped with iron, ironing board, hairdryer and fridge, plus TV. I had a lovely view of Thomas Circle but the road can be noisy, with lots of fire trucks / sirens. I also found the fridge was noisy in the night. The heating is fully controllable, but it's a dry heat which made my nose bleed. They offer a free luggage room too and overall I would recommend this hotel.
