I stayed here for about a week. Great central location with easy access around town via metro or walking or using the shared bikes just across the street. The staff were pleasant and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable with great wifi connection. Cant ask much more of a hotel.

We stayed for 4 nights over the Labour Day weekend. The hotel has a great location -and the room was very comfortable. We enjoyed the outdoor pool most of all as it was extremely hot. It's a great big pool with lots of lounge chairs and a pool bar.

I stayed at the Washington Plaza for 3 days for business and was not disappointed. I wish you could give 1/2 stars on a hotel as I would rate this a 4.5 vs. a 4. I had a spacious room (524) that had an amazing view of the pool (which was closed I assume because it is fall) and Thomas... More

This is a very good hotel in a convenient and quiet location. Our room, on the 8th floor, had a wonderful outlook, and was very light and spacious. The only, very slight, criticism was that the room decor was just a little dated. Also, returning to the room at 16.30 to wash and change, it had not been made up.... More

Nice hotel for meetings in a convenient location...about 15 minute walk from McPherson Square metro. Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice meeting space. Try for a queen room with balcony to get a little bit of outdoor space and fresh air.

Just returned from 5 nights at the Plaza. The price was right, location was good, staff was excellent. We walked to the National Mall, Dupont Circle, China town, The Verizon center.

The open balcony door meant that I was able to wake with the sound of birdsong, with hardly any traffic noise, in this leafy part of the Capital at Thomas Circle. My arrival coincided with that of a group of police cyclists, and midmorning. Despite this, the check in was courteous and swift. The location of the hotel allowed me... More

This hotel is the Motel 6 of downtown hotels, it's affordable but don't expect anything extravagant. They have the cheapest parking of all the hotels downtown ($25/night). Their decor really needs updated, it still looks like it from the late 70's/early 80's. The poor fish in the lobby look like they may go insane from boredom as their tanks literally... More

Based on my travels in DC, SF, and NYC, TripAdvisor reviewers favor a "type" of hotel. They prefer places that: are well-located, friendly service, "character" over "new". The Washington Plaza meets the type. I had a reservation for a weekend in early October for a queen-bedded room, at the internet rate of $99. Parking was an additional $25/night, so a... More
