Fab base for exploration

Extremely friendly hotel staff willing to help and give advice re restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions etc. Room large with spare fridge and nice bathroom. Excellent balcony overlooking the pool (given upgrade, very nice surprise). Wifi unfortunately kept cutting out and did not work a lot of the time however time spent in room was minimal given fantastic location of hotel just minutes from the White House.

Excellent Accomodation

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and it was a very relaxing stay. We arrived shortly after check in opened - and we were offered a Queen Room (which we booked) with a walk-in shower... we accepted and checked in with ease. The reception staff were friendly. Our room was located on the 5th floor at the end of the hall over looking the pool. The room was comfortable and well appointed. I've stayed in a lot of hotels in the last few years but this bed has definitely got to be one of the most comfortable! We kept the do not disturb sign on the door whenever we were in the room as the housekeepers start quite early and then come back again for a turn down service in the evening, so I would keep the door sign on if you don't want this. We flipped the sign over when we went out and the room was serviced while we were out on both days. Location is great, apart from a taxi to & from Union Station we actually walked everywhere we needed to go, Lincoln memorial, Smithsonians, Dupont Circle - even Georgetown! Washington is a great city for walking after all. We ate breakfast in the hotel one morning, continental which was good - cereal, juice, pastries and muffins. There was also a greater selection for a higher price and a menu for a-la-carte options. We ordered room service one of the evenings, which was very easy and tasty to boot. Also a courtesy call to check how the food was is also a great touch. Check out was simple and the friendly doormen called round a taxi - there seems to always be a couple of cabs waiting at the end of the driveway. Overall a very pleasant stay at a great hotel, lovely attention to detail that points to the fact that they know what they're doing!

Great City Location

Stayed for three nights mid August 2014.Great location, short walk downtown and to the metro. Decor a bit dated but we felt it added to the overall ambience. Very welcoming and helpful staff, excellent bell boys, welcoming and charming receptionist, fabulous bar staff and a very good housemaid service. Bar food (snacks) were good but did not try the restaurant. It was great to have the pool in the late evening sunshine after a long day sightseeing. Car parking was a bit pricey at $25 a night but otherwise highly recommended. Tom and Linda - Ireland

Great Washington Hotel

Super hotel which was very welcoming, excellent service and very comfortable. Happy hour offers were an extra bargain but even without these it was good value

Single traveller, pleasure

Third time visited Washington Plaza, literally no complaints, enjoyed everytime. Clean, comfortable, ten minute walk to nearest Metro, onsite restaurant, bit expensive, but quality and staff make up for the price. Would recommend Plaza to anyone planning to visit DC. Nearest Metro is McPhearson Sq,

The hotel is really good located near the main attractions in W'ton DC. Apart from this it is however rather a middle-3-star then a 4-star hotel: the rooms indeed are much! smaller than you would expect from the pictures on the website and the superior room I booked hadn't a superior looking at all. Furthermore the walls are thin with regard to noise from in- and outside the hotel and not even USB sockets were installed in the room to charge iphones @ co. And the coffee-machine was in the toilet?! To summarize: This place is good located but yet far too expensive as it unfortunately does not reach a 4-star- level. At least the portiers were very friendly.
