Dining

international lounge
The keynote of the international is the feeling of grown-up glamour and sophistication that reigned throughout the Kennedy years - the golden age of All-American-Style; full of promise and ambition. This is not Austin Powers or Warhol Pop. Think Babe Paley; think dressed up, crisp clothed jet-setters and kings of commerce enjoying a classic champagne cocktail, nibbling an elegant snack, while engaging in intense flirtation and conversation into the wee hours - after all one can always stay over.
No. 10 Thomas
No. 10 Thomas offers Contemporary American cuisine and the perfect ambience for any meal. Watch the "Early birds" at Logan Circle in the morning, sunbathers taking a dip in our pool after lunch, or the sunset over National City Christian Church in the evening. Sip a Glass of Champagne or enjoy a cocktail by candle light on our Poolside terrace and make a wish while counting the shooting stars over Washington D.C.

Decent value

Good location, clean. Wireless internet included but basically worked only intermittently at best and VERY slow. Breakfast at hotel very pricey for what you get. If you don't need reliable internet - good value for location.

Travel in December

The room was large enough for 2 people and was clean. The hotel was a little far from the White House and other popular places for walking. Overall experience was pretty good. I'd recommend this hotel.

night out in dc

We stayed here just so we didn't have to venture back to the burbs after a night out. The staff were very friendly and the room served it's purpose. The hotel is a little dated. But the room was clean, comfortable, and in a good location.

Pleasant Surprise

I used to live near this hotel a long time ago. I frequently walked past it, but had no reason to go in. The price listed last weekend was ridiculously cheap so I thought I'd give it a try as it is very conveniently located to downtown. The Washington Plaza rooms and staff were much nicer than I expected given the low price and the age of the hotel. I had no complaints and no issues. I would rate it higher than the official 3 stars. I will probably stay here again, perhaps when the pool is open in the summer

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Post Pub - super old school bar a blessed relief to all the super pricey, trendy places that have opened in DC over the last few years.

Everything is good except parking care of 30 dollar for one night.

Hotel stay was good and staff is helpful. It was not mentioned anywhere that parking is paid after booking hotel room and they charge 30 dollar for one night parking. It will be good if it is mentioned while booking it self .

Impromptu Long Weekend Getaway

Hotel was clean and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. It is located within walking distance to all of the major tourist sites and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. The Metro is also close by if you choose not to walk. There were no vending machines, which is disappointing when in need of a late night snack. Was very disappointed that we were not notified of the parking rates at the time we booked the room. When we stayed it was $35 per night for valet or $30 to self park. Although the price was a little cheaper than most other hotels in the area and street parking is impractical, it would have been nice to know that when budgeting for the trip. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel and would recommend it to others.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The national mall is about a 2 to 3 mile walk from the hotel. We visited in December so seeing the National Christmas Tree and Menorah was a nice plus. We suggest visiting the monuments and memorials early in the morning and then heading to the museums since they do not open until 10:00 a.m..
