We stayed at the State Plaza Hotel for 5 nights in the beginning of April. It was myself and two kids, aged 12 and 15. I chose the State Plaza because of location. It was just a few blocks from Metro and within walking distance to most monuments and popular sites within DC. We even walked to Georgetown for dinner... More

We really liked this place. They have a full kitchen in some of the apts., dining table in a dining area, living room, bath/shower combo 3 closets and all big rooms! Very nice staff and a restaurant on the site. A few blocks to walk to the metro but the Foggy Bottom location is safe being right in the college... More

I stayed for two nights at the State Plaza Hotel (E Street side). My visit was in connection with an academic event on the adjacent GWU campus. The hotel was convenient to my event and to The Mall (especially the Lincoln memorial, Korean War Memorial, etc.). the suite I was in was like an apartment--huge living room, dining area, small...

After a weeks stay at the State Plaza, these few observations. The rooms are a very nice size but need to be remodeled and updated. The beds are very comfortable, and the house-keeping is very attentive. The bathrooms and kitchens are mostly functional but have not been changed in any significant way since the 1960's or 1970's. The drab grey... More

Recently stayed for 3 nights on a work/family vacation trip with our tween son. Staff was very friendly and the room was serviceable and very clean. Everything has a slightly dated 50s/60s feel, which we enjoyed in a funky retro sort of way, though perhaps not to everyone's taste. Our first room was on the 8th floor near the elevators... More

Best value for money; rooms are clean and spacious with kitchen which is very convenient for families with picky eaters. Staff was very helpful. Adjacent to George Washington University and all sorts of little restaurants and pubs.

Hotel room was ok. a little out dated.. because of the lime green bathroom.. This was a renovated government building so they just painted everything cream color & put in the bare essentials.. the beds were comfy & looked clean.. .. What was weird to us was the fact that I asked the staff if there were places to eat... More

hotel staff was beyond expectations, wonderful and friendly, booked three of us in a suit in a spectacular room, spacious, cozy, one thing though the AC wasn't working, it was set on heat for some reason, but that is just a minor thing, if we were to have asked the desk to help us with it they would have helped....

Stayed here recently to look at GW University for my son. You cannot beat the location of this hotel. Walk to monuments and walk to GW. wow. Huge huge rooms, room a little old and the bathroom a little small, but the location of the hotel and the size of the rooms offset any negatives. Parking overnight is $32, but... More
