“As advertised: Great Service, Location and Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

This is a nice small and clean hotel with a great location. Rooms are pretty spacious, and mine even had a kitchen. The ups of this hotel was that the White House and other relevant attractions of D.C. were in a walking distance. The down: the hotel's restaurant, just don't go there and visit other restaurants!

The hotel is really good. Spacious rooms. Very kind personnel and walking distance from all the atractions. Also you have free wifi. If you are planning a pleasant stay in washington this is your hotel.

The hotel has a perfect location. The room was huge, and we got a kitchen and a dressing room, but the bathroom was insanely small.
The towels were positioned totally next to the toilet, which brings up serious hygienic concerns, and there was other no space left to hang them onto.
Apart from that, good service and good price.

Room Tip: The front building has better location than the rear building.

The lobby is very warm, sophisticated and modern--much like the front desk staff.

I stayed in a King Room in the North Tower on the top floor. When I entered my room, the ice bucket was full and the heat was adjusted to a comfortable temperature. The room itself was extremely spacious, plush with new carpeting and boasted stylish blackout curtains. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the SIX pillows provided great neck support--certainly not mushy hotel pillows we've all grown accustomed to.

On Saturday night, returned to my room to find a bottle of water on my bed side table (much appreciated after a night on U Street). That unexpected touch was so pleasant and showed an attention to detail you wouldn't encounter at a chain property.

Thank you to the front desk staff (Lili) for helping me get a new string for my luggage tag after it unexpectedly snapped.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room in the North Tower

This hotel is in 2 buildings. They have different addresses. I was in the North Tower which is on F Street, not E Street. Both have lobbies. I was in room 732. This room had 2 Queen beds, full kitchen, dressing area and bath with tub. While the kitchen doesn't have an oven, it has everything else, including basic pots and pans, table and chairs. CVS next door has some food, and Whole Foods Market is about 4 blocks away. You can save a lot of money making your own meals. Hotel has a decent restaurant, but there aren't any others in the general area. Room service was quick.

The beds were firm but appeared to have memory foam toppings. Both beds had those huge puffy pillows. I only use a flat pillow, so I just folded up some towels to use as a pillow.

The building has been updated. The windows are double pane, so it's fairly quiet and well insulated. However, there is a hospital 3 blocks away, so sirens can be heard at all hours. Also, this is the closest hotel to the State Department, so every time a mucky muck left with a police escort, you had more sirens. I live in a very rural area, so this bothered me. Probably wouldn't bother 98% of the guests.

The bathroom came with a deep tub and plenty of towels. I was there just after the blizzard, so soaking in a tub was wonderful. The shower head was nice. Hot water arrived quickly and never ran out.

I was only using public transportation, and the bus service was only fair. The closest Metro Station was Foggy Bottom, and no matter what other sites say, it's a full 5 block walk from the Metro to the hotel. If you know you're going to be in the North Tower, it will save you a full block of walking.

The staff was wonderful. The doormen were perfect. There was a lot of snow, and they'd help you up and down the stairs. The front desk staff (both lobbies) were quick and helpful. I had a minor problem with some equipment and maintenance was at my door in 15 minutes. They will loan you umbrella's.

The buildings did have a peculiar layout which might be troublesome to wheelchair users. There were random stairs. I would caution wheelchair users to inquire further about their rooms.

This hotel is fairly close the the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Memorial, and Vietnam Memorial.

In summary, I had a very nice 7 day stay.

Room Tip: North Building on quieter street
