We have two sons attending The George Washington University, so we have stayed at State Plaza a few times over the last 3 years. First of all, it is right on the edge of campus, so that one can walk to center campus in 10 minutes. It also is within 3 long city blocks of the Mall and the White House. The Hotel was formerly two apartment houses that have been converted to hotel rooms. There are two entrances which can be confusing. The elevators are very slow and when the hotel is buzy, the wait takes forever.
We tried the restuarant for lunch on a very rainy day in November and found the food and service very good. It seems many folks working at the University and the government offices nearby frequent the resturant for lunch. One of my sons goes there often on Monday night, as they have half price hamburger platters for GW students.
The beds are very comfortable. The TV is a HD. The room thermostats seem old and cranky, which makes regulating the room temp a bit difficult. The widows do open. Room rate on a non busy weekend was only $98.00 nightly, which is very reasonable in DC.More
