Rooms at the Washington Plaza are very comfortable and Euro-chic. The staff, and the HUGE pool area (unique in DC) are wonderful. But what makes the Washington Plaza a blast is the location. True, it's at least a 10 minute walk from the nearest Metro station (McPherson). But this hotel is right on 14th NW, in the heart of all of the coolest bars and restaurants in DC. Spend money on a cab or Uber to get to the hotel from business or the airport, and be able to walk to all the fun nightlife in DC--and walk back. Sincerely love this place, and will return!!
