Booked the L'Enfant thru Priceline. Great deal. Hotel staff was very courteous, allowed check-in before 1 pm. Had requested a room with two doubles, room had a king. Immediately corrected with a room with two doubles on 12th floor, incredible view of river. Forgot toothbrush, called and one was delivered within a few minutes. Room was very nice, looked and...

My boyfriend surprised me with tickets to see the closing night performance of "Les Miserables" at the National Theatre in Washington D.C. the weekend of January 20-22, 2006. We thought the hotel was just lovely, but the front desk staff is the WORST either one of us has ever encountered! IF you could get someone at the front desk to... More

This hotel is way overpriced for what it offers. The rooms are reasonably nice and the staff is very nice. The pillows are awful!!!! There is a metro stop located in a mall beneath the hotel. It's great during the day when it's crowded and plenty of restaurants to eat at - during the evening it's a different story. Most... More

On 30 December we booked a room at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel through Hotels.com [via their toll free number] for New Year's Eve. They have it listed as three and a half star hotel. We booked a smoking room with a king bed. When we arrived at the hotel on 31 December we found the parking garage to be quite... More

We were very pleased with our accomodations at this hotel. The rooms were very neat and clean and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Having the metro beneath the hotel was a big plus. We only wished that the shops on the promenade were open after 5pm. Having McDonalds there was great for breakfast,especially since the hotel restaraunt had... More

If you prefer clean rooms, working toilets and televisions, and a staff that doesn't act like dorm managers in the Soviet Bloc, do not stay at the L'enfant Plaza Hotel. My husband and I booked a premium king room for New Year's Eve. We planned to order a room service dinner, maybe watch a movie, relax, and watch the fireworks... More

My husband and I and our two teenage daughters just spent a wonderful weekend at the L'Enfant plaza Hotel in Washington. It was a wonderful weekend getaway. This was a perfect time to see Washington. The hotel was very lovely and the staff was very polite. The location was so close to the Smitsonian and the Capitol. The subway was... More

Our small but rabid group of crazy Red Sox fans made our yearly pilgrimage to an away game (Orioles, this time) and booked a weekend stay at the L'Enflant Plaza Hotel. The responsibility of choosing the hotel fell to me this time around. I had seen the hotel mentioned favorably in the Washington/Baltimore Mobil Guide and read the (overall mixed)reviews... More

I stayed here with my family of five (three children-10,12,14) for two nights and found the location to be unbeatable. No car rental was required because it is so close to the main tourist attractions, and a subway stop is located in the below- ground level. (And just minutes from Rondal Regan airport!) There is also a huge underground shopping... More
