Don't rent a car in D.C. Use public transit or bikeshare. Parking is either ridiculously expensive or very difficult to find, everywhere.

Excellent for long stays

This is a very comfortable hotel in a very good location. The metro was nearby. Rooms were very comfortable and roomy. I would like to see them add bars in showers or strips in tubs.

A Gem Among the Titans

A wonderful value, excellent location for many reasons, and the rooms are huge, not modern, but clean and very functional, like having an apartment. Only negative comment, the pillows, too many and hard as rocks.

Month in DC

We spent a month in Washington DC, seeing the sites and using the hotel as a base of operations. Its located close to the Metro and a few places to eat. The hotel is old, needs to have the rest rooms updated (urine smell). The staff is amazing they work hard and provide excellent service. On site resturant is ok, nothing special, food quality can be random. The room is advertised as having a kitchen, but you must ask for a microwave, there is limited dishes and nothing to cook with. Would not recommend if you expect to use the kitchen. Overall not somewhere I would recommend staying beyond two days.

Great location with all amenities we need

This is a great value hotel! It is so close to the White House and Mall area if you want to sightseeing those places. We particularly love the full kitchen, the comfortable queen size bed with the great support pillows. The room was kept very clean. My two kids enjoyed their stays as much as us.

State Plaza is awesome!

This was a great option for our holiday trip. Truthfully, I selected State Plaza Hotel because the package was cost effective while traveling with our 2 granddaughters, but we loved it. State Plaza is in a great location, very comfortable and the full kitchen was a wonderful surprise. Best of all was the service! Everyone in every shift was warm, friendly and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We commend it highly.

Good value, close to attractions

Our family of 4 stopped in DC on the way back north for New Years Eve and Day. My thought was that crowds would be thin, and they were. Wanted a hotel that we could walk to attractions from. State Plaza is an old hotel, built long front to back on a city block. If you are a frequent traveler with your family and accustomed to the hotel chains with the spacious lobbies and breakfast bars, this is very different. This is an old-style, city hotel, with a concierge and bellhops, eager to assist you in any way. The room was spacious, and included a small kitchen with stove, full-sized fridge, and coffee maker; no microwave. Bathroom included a separate "powder room" where one person could dress while another showered. Lots of room for 2 adults and 2 children. Fixtures are all old, but everything worked fine; TV a modern flatscreen. Beds were comfortable. WiFi included. Rooms were VERY CLEAN! Parking was valet and cost extra (as is the case with most in the city). There was a decent fitness room, no pool. Restaurant on-site, but we did not use. 24-hr drug/convenience store and liquor store next-door, coffee and sandwich shops close by. Staff was very professional, service excellent. Hotel is close to Lincoln Memorial; a healthy walk from museums. Cabs, buses, subway all close by though. A good value for a family. Would recommend.

If you are making a day of the museums, look for the clock tower behind the Museum of Nat. History. There is an excellent food court in the lower level for lunch and /or dinner at reasonable prices.
