I was a little apprehensive when I arrived at the hotel but was happy to leave thinking differently. The front desk admitted that the hotel was going through a bit of a face lift, and appreciated their efforts so far starting with the lobby to the room I stayed in. The staff were very pleasant to deal with from check-in to check-out.
As it's website suggests, the rooms are quite spacious offering plenty of closet space, full kitchenette, flat screen tv with ample channels, free wifi, a desk, and a small safe to stash some of your precious belongings. The view from your room is not ideal but the room was clean and updated, and you really do get a lot of room for what you're paying - with the exception of the washroom which was bright and updated but a little snug. It was nice to receive a newspaper waiting at the door every morning.
There are some nearby stores that are convenient for those who don't feel like traveling too far for food or necessities. On one side of the hotel is a pharmacy and liquor store, and on the other side a convenience store called Fobo Gro. A grocery store "Market" is also close if you wanted to optimize the kithcenette. A couple minutes in the opposite direction was a Subway and Starbucks. I had lunch at the garden cafe once that was actually quite decent, but the room requires a much needed update and could dissuade customers in the current state it's in. That said, the sandwich was good, came relatively quick and the service was friendly.
As you have read from multiple reviewers it's conveniently located within walking distance to the National Mall and iconic monuments. Not much farther are the museums of natural history and National Gallery of Art. You can walk or take the nearby metro.
The hotel cleverly promotes the three things that it delivers on - great customer service, central location and affordability. There are certainly more luxurious options that have better views of the city, but the State Plaza offers a great package for its value.
