I recently spent four nights at the Wahington Plaza Hotel. I was there on business and it was January so I didn't have the opportunity to take advantage of many of the amenities but I had a very nice stay. The room was nice. Not fancy, but clean and well appointed. It had a coffee maker and blow dryer and... More

We stayed in this hotel in September 2015. We had booked a Queen room but got upgraded to a King room with balcony - true value! The hotel has a beautiful pool (which closed mid-September so we didn't use it) which our room overlooked. The wi-fi was good, and there's a restaurant/bar in the lobby if you want to eat... More

My brief visit to DC was highlighted by my wonderful stay at your hotel. The desk staff was friendly and efficient. My room was in absolutely perfect condition, and the bed was so comfy.

Was unsure before booking this hotel as not a chain I had heard of but have to say one of the places with the best service I have experienced in uk. Staff at the front desk gave good advice on where to go and were entertaining. Room are huge.Very good breakfast and bar with excellent selection. Will defo go back.

Am on the 5th night of my 6-night stay at this Hotel.

Let me start with the positives - clean hotel with nicely updated hotel rooms. My one complaint about the sleeping room is that even though the bed was advertised as a queen it felt very small - maybe it was a full and those four inches make a difference - my partner and I felt kinda cramped. And our bed... More

I was looking for a "DC home" when traveling to visit my daughter---and found it in this lovely hotel. Had a hiccup at check-in that was taken care of immediately with great aplomb. Just four blocks from her home, and a professional staff who were helpful and welcoming every time I came through the door. The room was beautifully clean... More

My employer put about 30 of us up at this hotel during a recent blizzard. It was hardly a hardship.

To a person, every single employee we met... More

Older hotel with odd bathroom configuration of toilet and shower in a small space with tiled floor and and sink in outside carpeted area. Sort of B-level hotel but offset by its good location, modest price, and reasonable parking - 24 yr fee with no restriction on in-and-out. This is a big plus given the difficulty of parking just about... More
