I stayed at L'Enfant Plaza with a group of high school kids while we toured the city. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. I loved that the metro was in the lower level of the hotel and so easy to access! The staff were so helpful and polite (not always an easy task when dealing with 20+... More

This hotel is one of the best locations for TRB attendees, with indoor access to L'Enfant Plaza subway station. The price is competitive, and the service is excellent. The staff is are very professional and they cater for the guest needs. Everything works as expected.

Convenient location with metro just at door step. Located in the middle of major attractions around the city. Only minus point is the concierge which we asked him to get a normal cab for us to airport. We reminded many times no limo and he still got us a limo. I believe that limo is from his friend and they... More

My wife and I recently (November 19 & 20) stayed at this terrific hotel which enjoys a great location near the DC Mall and the Smithsonian . . .and has a metro stop in the "basement". Our room on the 14th floor was clean and spacious, and provided a view toward the Washington monument. There is a lot of construction... More

A classic hotel among the three towers of offices and above the underground shops of the Promenade Food Court at L’Enfant Plaza, change is in the works. The small park-like area with it glass pyramid is no longer. The next iteration is under construction and that noise permeates the plaza-facing rooms of the hotel from 7 am until darkness and...

I stayed here in early November for almost a week. The rooms were clean, the restaurant had great meals, and the staff was very friendly. It's close to the Smithsonian, and even though there is construction going on in front of the hotel, it did not matter. There are 2 drawbacks: The Foggy Bottom Brew Pub does not have a... More

Situated right next to the bus from the airport, and very close to the Smithsonian and the Mall including all attractions. Not very fancy, but the rooms have what you need. Very good breakfast and very friendly staff. We got a room with a view over the river and Pentagon.

I recently had a four day stay at the L'Enfant to visit the great city of Washington, DC. This was my first stay at the hotel, and I could not have asked for a better property in terms of location. It was perfect. Close to almost everything, and right at a metro station to take you to places a little... More

In july 2013, we booked three rooms at the L'enfant Plaza Hotel for a 4 day stay over the Thanksgiving weekend. A week before our trip the hotel called us to say that they had over booked and did not have enough rooms for our entire stay. They said we could spend half of our trip at another location.This location... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. We chose this hotel due to location, close to the Smithsonian Museums, etc. Reasonable prices and in good condition, with some minor indicatoin of wear in carpet at entry to room. The hotel restaurant served a good breakfast and lunch (we did not have dinner there) with good service. Front desk staff... More
