We stayed at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel during our spring break vacation to Washington DC. The hotel has a wonderful location, it is very convenient to the Metro, which allows you to get anywhere within the city in minutes. You can also make the 10 minute walk to the Mall to enjoy the Smithsonian Museums. The food court below the hotel has some good choices and is open Monday-Friday for breakfast lunch and an early dinner (most places closed about 6pm). On the weekends, it is deserted. Our room was dated, but overall very clean. The beds were comfy and pillows were ample. The hotel service was good. My only complaint is that they allow dogs. We had a very rude neighbor 2 doors with a yapping, barking dog that wouldn't shut up. We complained to the front desk twice and they said they called the room, but more should have been done in my opinion. Our room was on the 12th floor, which is "ground level" for the swimming pool. We had a sliding glass door to the pool deck. We didn't use the pool, but it appeared heated, although hardly used, even by kids. Again, the yappy annoying dog was allowed to run (an poop) all over the pool deck unattended and not cleaned up after. That was gross! Not necessarily the hotel's fault, but the hotel allowed the rude guests to get away with it.
I would stay here again. Mainly because of the convenience and affordable price. The room was adequate for sleeping and a shower, which is all we did there.
