“Felt most welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We loved this hotel.
We booked a deluxe King room and it was huge. Double vanity in the bathroom, hot strong water in the shower, walk in robe with heaps of hanging room, comfy huge bed, dark block out curtains and we had a great view over the pool and Thomas Circle.
The people there were great too.
Whilst obviously instructed to, every staff member without exception said hello/good morning/have a nice day etc as we passed.
An easy, little courtesy that goes a long way to making guests feels special.
And in a city where so many people probably are special, we felt so too.
The hotel was an easy walk to McPherson Metro station and to the White House/National Mall area. We walked to and from restaurants at night and felt perfectly safe in the area.
A great stay and would stay again.
Thank you Washington Plaza.

Room Tip: We had room 922 which was a high room with a view over Thomas Circle. Big, dark and quiet.

I booked this hotel at expedia, they were running a prepay special and the reviews were good. There is some remodeling at the front entrance. The hotel overall looks like they remodeled within the last year or two. Smooth check in and check out. The beds were comfortable and had many pillow choices. The carpet in the bathroom/ changing area is showing some wear. The vanity and changing area was good sized, but the toilet/ shower room was small. There is some street noise from Mass Ave/ Thomas cir, we were given ears plugs that we did not use. We ran the AC fan as white noise. The bar has good food and service. The hotel is within easy walking of a lot of sights- white house, mall, ford theatre and metro. Take a cab from Union Station for $12. Would stay again.

It is the best hotel in DC. My son plays football for Catholic University, so we have been driving from Boston, on the weekends, to see his games and visit. The staff is great, the food is delicious, the parking is very convenient and the hotel is clean and comfortable. I have never had a problem. All for a reasonable price. I would not stay anywhere else. Clearly a well run hotel. Ask for Kevin in reservations, he is wonderful.

We brought friends from Australia to see DC and stayed here. What a wonderful experience!! The rooms were lovely with everything you need. The staff is exceptional!! They are kind, helpful, very friendly, and make you feel like they truly are glad you're there. The staff at the front desk made us feel like we were family. Kudos to Rachel and the rest of the evening crew.

The hotel is in a great central location down town Washington DC. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The the dinner excellent, breakfast too greasy for my liking. The overall experience was was good. Parts of the hotel looked slightly shabby but again there was a renovation underway.

Although renovations were going on in the Hotel, it did not effect the experience of the stay. We heard absolutely no noise and none of the amenities of the hotel were affected either.
The staff were extremely helpful, kind and friendly and enhanced the stay. They really do go the extra mile. The free paper and water each day was also a nice touch.
The room itself was a nice size as was the bathroom. The room was extremely clean and quiet. It was a bright and well furnished and nicely decorated room.
The swimming pool area was also fantastic. It was nice to be able to do a day of sightseeing and be able to relax outside by the pool in the late afternoon/evening. The location of the hotel was also great - was walking distance to the White House and there were also lots of restaurants nearby. There is a Metro stop right near the hotel as well - which was useful for the Smithsonian museums.
We liked the hotel so much that we extended our stay by an extra night!!!
I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
