Whenever I go to Washington for work Washington Plaza is my first choice for a hotel. Excellent location. Wonderful staff. Unique rooms. Not large or impersonal. Nice restaurant. Leisurely walk to White House. Variety of restaurants nearby. I have stayed here many, many times and each stay has been excellent.

This hotel was excellent across the board! We arrived late at night in January so it was cold and snowing and the doormen were absolutely lovely when we arrived. They must have been freezing but they were so friendly and attentive! All of the staff at this hotel were always friendly and always greeted us with a smile. The location...

I usually stay at the Washington Plaza when I visit family in the area, and I am always satisfied. The hotel is very well located near Logan Circle and 14th Street where there are many great restaurants and interesting shops. There is also a Metro station not far away, but I almost never use it, because, if you are a...

I was over from the UK attending a conference and was the Plaza for 6 nights. This is hotel is great value for money and the staff give 5 star service in every department.

The hospitality started the moment I walked in. I was super early checking in and they accommodated me with a room on the spot. The room was clean and pleasant. They even called minutes later to see if I was happy with my room. The only complaint I had was some loud guests outside my room at around 10:30 pm,...

Before living in DC, I used to travel there about every other weekend, often needing a hotel for a night or two. With no specific loyalty, I would find a good-priced option that was not too inconveniently located to the middle of town. The majority of the time, the Washington Plaza was the best priced option on the online booking...

“Try to stay in a room on the back side, so it is not affected by noise from the Circle.”

“We were in 610, facing Thomas Circle. Nice for the southern exposure, views. Maybe a little louder than back-facing rooms, but no big deal. Lower floors have small balconies. Hair dryer blew the breaker in the bathroom once. Maybe run it on medium and just have one light on instead of two--and the coffee maker off. They responded very quickly and reset it.”
