“Safety in a storm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I was recently stuck in Washington DC when the Superstorm Sandy hit and I had to stay a couple of extra days. I booked this hotel through booking.com and check in time was meant to be 3pm. I turned up at midday and they immediately let me have a room.
The room was clean with lots of cable tv channels, fridge, hairdryer, safe, ironing board, hairdryer and toiletries. There was a desk that I could plug my laptop into and there was free wifi throughout the entire hotel.
I ate in the restaurant and the food was good, and at happy hour in the bar I had a glass of wine for $5.
The hotel is a few blocks from the nearest metro but I mostly walked around Washington.
I needed to get to the airport and when I asked at reception they immediately managed to book me on to a shuttle bus for the next day with less than 24 hours notice.

Room Tip: I stayed at the back without a view, but it does mean no road noise.

Other than the somewhat smallish size of our bedroom, I can't find fault with anything else at the Washington Plaza Hotel. It was a pleasure to interact with all the very nice and helpful staff I met (front desk, gift shop, restaurant, bar, doormen, maids). This does not seem to be like a place where people hate their jobs! The decor in the lobby and bar is understated and calm. There are a good breakfast buffet, and efficiently designed bedrooms and bathrooms. For the relatively low weekend price we paid, it was a nice surprise to get evening turndown service. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Metro, with plenty of restaurants and several theaters within walking distance.

Reading some of the other reviews for this place I wonder if we stayed at the same hotel at all, the location is outstanding, the staff very professional and the revamp of the hotel top notch. We got a standard 2 beds room, the furniture, linens, carpeting, bath products, curtains were all very modern and high quality imho. The only part of the room that gave away the fact its not a new hotel was the bathtub, but it was still nice with new fittings. We had a great quiet stay, and the staff were very helpful, I would for sure stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone no questions asked.

Stayed 24 h inbetween flights. Decent location, fresh but little plain interior. Not very thick walls/doors but was never bothered - guess it depends on your neighbours... Nothing to complain about really so could stay here again, but just nothing special that would stop me from trying another next time.

I called the hotel the day before arrival and spoke with Monica who was very interested in our visit and made notes about our visit - thanks Monica!! On arrival at the hotel from walking through the front door to checking in with Rachael to the housekeeping staff to the restaurant staff - we all noticed how friendly and polite everyone was! We booked two rooms - one for my friend celebrating her 40th birthday and one for me and my husband celebrating his 50th birthday. On arrival both rooms were upgraded to suites - we also got rooms facing the pool area so the view of Thomas Circle was great - thank you! Although we arrived early at the hotel (10am on Saturday) expecting to have to put our luggage into storage we got both rooms immediately - what a delightful surprise. The rooms were very spacious and the decor bright and modern - also very clean!! We had no problems with noise despite the hotel being fully sold out and being near to the elevator! The hotel is in a great location to all the major sightseeing attractions in DC and also close to the Metro which made getting around easy. The breakfast at No 10 on Sunday morning was very nice and great value for money for the main buffet! Thanks to Rachael and the management and staff at Washington Plaza for making this special celebration a stay to remember.

Room Tip: Request a view of the pool area - great location!

My husband and I booked this hotel online based on a few reviews and mainly the location for a long birthday weekend. (6 blocks behind the Whitehouse) It was basically a steal for $70 a night!

First when we arrived at the front desk exceptionally wonderful and personable service was provided. We told him it was my birthday and we got upgraded to a higher floor. It was so sweet!

The Room- Spacious and Modern with all of the conveniences of a good hotel room. Wonderful bath area. High end shampoos and soaps were a plus! Great view of Thomas Circle.

This hotel is within walking distance in each direction of everything we wanted to see... Georgetown, the Whitehouse, the Smithsonian Museums, etc!

Restaurants were a little iffy in the area... we did head out towards Georgetown the second night and found some amazing places. (Georgetown Cupcakes)

All in all- I would stay here again.

The room was clean but small. We eat at the resturant twice and we really enjoyed the meals. We were in walking distance to most of the attractions which was very convenient. We had one problem with our own car that was parked below the hotel. The pipes above our car leaked some sort of lime/calcium deposit on it. It was real hard to get off. The only thing that would work was CLR cleaner.
