Not that impressed but great location

Would not recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
My wife and 16 month old son came to DC to see the sights. The hotel was walking distinct to everyting but that's about it on the positive side. It was warm when we arrived and the building still only had heat so it was very warm in the room. Our room was a suite but had little to no cooking tools. We had to beg/borrow/steal just to make our dinner. Parking is $30 a night plus tax with really no other options. There are no ramps for luggage or strollers so it was a challenge checking in/out.

Attractions

There is a CVS right next door if you need bus/train passes.

Great Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
We wanted to be near the National Mall and a metro station. This hotel fits the bill. It was literally 3-4 blocks from the WA Monument and 5 blocks from the Foggy Bottom metro station. There is a CVS store right next door that is opened 24 hrs, so if we needed quick snacks, drinks, etc...it was perfect. The hotel staff were courteous, helpful, professional and very friendly. The rooms are clean and quiet. The only downfall was that we didn't have AC in our room. It was so hot. They don't turn on the AC until summer kicks in. But once we brought it to their attention, they brought up a portable fan for us. That solved the hot room.

Perfect for our needs

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
We were there for the cherry blossoms. Stayed 5 nights. The hotel was perfect for our needs, even had a lovely restaurant that was frequented by local business people (always a good sign). It is a bit old, but was very clean and the beds were wonderful. It was directly next door to a liquor store and a CVS, and we shopped at both. We were able to walk at night because we were in the midst of George Washington University -- lots of evening foot traffic. Our room had a kitchenette with a table and chairs, stove and full-sized fridge. We're not breakfast people so we made coffee each day and were on our way. We would definitely stay at the State Plaza Hotel again.

Attractions

We only took cabs when the weather was rainy. Otherwise, we were within walking distance to the Washington Monument.

Unbeatable Location for the Price

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
The location of this hotel to the National Mall, museums and the metro was great. Only a few blocks to each. The size of the rooms were good, even with a small kitchen. The kitchen didn't have a oven, only a stove top, so don't plan on baking any food. There was a CVS drugstore next door which came in handy. You can buy some food there (ie milk, cereal, snacks). There is a coffee shop next door as well which is good in the morning. The only downfall to the location of this hotel is that there were not many restaruants real close by. You can walk 5-6 blocks and there are some. We did eat in the hotel once and it was pretty good. The staff was helpful arranging taxis, and they had umbrellas to borrow. This hotel is a great deal. I would totally recommend. I was traveling with my two kids over spring break so I really wanted a safe location/hotel. I did not feel unsafe at anytime. We even took the metro at night and we felt safe. An awesome trip.

Money saver

If you want to take the metro you can buy day passes for approx $7.80 per person for unlimited stops or you can purchase by the week. We found it better to buy by the day based on were we wanted to go in DC. Most days we walked everywhere due to the location of the hotel relative to all the sites and only used the metro when ou feet hurt from all the walking.

Nice family apartment style hotel

Would recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
Everything was very satisfactory, free upgrade to larger room, new carpet. Only on Saturday night, there was an ethnic type convention nearby and many of the people were staying at the hotel, which would have been fine, except that the young adult kids were noisy until after midnight.

Dining

There are many great restaurants within walking distance from about 5 blks. to 20 blks, but we love walking everywhere. My favorite was Founding Farmers. Organic, green, great food.

Family friendly

Would recommend Sun, Apr 12, 2009
9 out of 10 for friendly staff, personal and eager to help. Spotless rooms with excellent maid service. Older hotel w/no easy switch from heat to air, but very accomodating to make the customer happy and comfortable. Relatively quiet and nice neighborhood. Would have liked the metro to be closer, but no complaint against hotel itself.

Substandard

Would not recommend Wed, Apr 8, 2009
The kitchenette had 3 forks, 5 knives and no spoons. there were no paper towels or wash clothes, no tea kettle, etc. You can call down for all those things but they don't pay attention to what you ask for and the people who work there can barely speak english and brought us up the wrong things every single time we requested things. We stopped letting the maid in on the 2nd day because she threw out food that was sealed in zip lock bags and was on the table- clearly things that were not trash. We were on the 3rd floor off the alley and because the air conditioning was blowing out warm air we had to have our windows open all the time - it was very noisy. Even with the windows closed the noise inside the hotel was too loud. I think this used to be apartments or something- the walls are paper thin; you can hear everyone and everything. They don't sell tours like the other hotels, but they have a computer room where you can do it yourself. They also don't have laundry facilities and there isn't a laundry mat in the vicinity, if there was they didn't know about it. They don't have breakfast, the F Street Bistro is terrible and the hotel doesn't have a concierge. Its 6 blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro, next time we will stay somewhere closer to the Capitol or a Metro stop.

A good hotel in the city

Would recommend Tue, Mar 24, 2009
This hotel is at a great location. Interesting places are very close. Especially, Washington monument, Lincoln Memorial, Capitol Hill, The White House, US Department of State. These are the main places in a capital city. There's a CVS pharmacy just next door where u can get almost all daily stuffs, from food to clothes. The kitchen attached to the room is also spacious and has everything. This is a perfect hotel.

Shopping hint

There's a CVS store and a liquor store just next door. That will be helpful. But there must be more computer in the Computer/Internet room (only two).

Great location for sightseeing!

Would recommend Tue, Mar 3, 2009
From the moment my sons and I arrived, it was an excellent experience! The staff were extremely helpful, courteous, and gracious. Our room was terrific, the kitchen/dining nook was ideal and larger than I expected. We did a lot of sightseeing; from the front entrance of the hotel you can see the Washington Monument, so it was an awesome location for us. Complimentary newspaper arrived at about 8:30 a.m., perfect timing for us as well. There is parking available for a fee, I very gladly handed my keys over for the duration of our stay! What few requests we made were attended to very promptly. My sons were thrilled with the flat screen tv, cable, and internet access. There is a small store beside the hotel with a limited selection of food/drinks etc. If one were staying more than a few days, I would definitely find a nearby market. (The only thing the kids missed was a microwave..) The kitchen area had loads of cupboard space, and dishes and flatware; cookware arrived within a very short time after requesting it! The stovetop and fridge are like something you would have on your own kitchen. The toiletries provided were of very high quality, another pleasant surprise! I was very pleased with how quiet the room & hotel were despite being in a busy area. We did not use the local transportation, however there was a commuter bus area just a few steps away. We did not go to the hotel restaurant during out stay, the menu looked delightful though. Over all, our experience at this hotel was excellent and I would definitely stay there on a return trip! I have already recommended it to friends who will be travelling to Washington DC in the near future.
