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.

A very good choice

The hotel, room, services restaurant are very satisfactory. The personnel are, also, very kind and cooperative. The only drawback is that they charge for the garage. I would expect the garage to be included.

weekend getaway & touring

good location (easy access to public transportation, close enough to downtown tourist sites), clean room, bedding was comfortable, good value for the money, and was even able to find free street parking around the corner from the hotel for the weekend.

Nice Stay

I have to say that the Washington Plaza Hotel was located a few streets from the National Mall and the White House; this was the perfect place to stay in terms of location to all of the sites and sounds of Washington, D.C. My room was average size, but was comfortable. The only thing that I was unaware of was the $110.00 hold that the hotel placed on my debit card to cover services such as food and drinks at the bar and room service. All in all, I had a nice stay at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

I had a very nice stay. Everything was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was within walking distance of the metro and the bus stop I use to visit my relatives.

great value for nice hotel in DC

The staff were efficient and friendly at all times. We got a call shortly after settling in to our room to ask if everything was to our liking. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. Great shower! Our room was on the small side, but the trade off for size was having a balcony with great views. The metro was within a10 minute walk. Very nice lobby and bar area and well maintained outdoor pool with outside dining space. Inviting breakfast buffet!

Quick Weekend Stay in DC

We got a great price here on so we decided to stay at the Plaza. It was also the hottest day of the year so the pool really helped. Staff was friendly and the room was clean. The Pool is fantastic and and perfect on those hot days. My only complaint might be the bathroom...There is basically no place to put your stuff. I had to keep all my toiletries out in the room except for maybe my tooth brush.

Great hotel

We stayed here on a vacation to Washington with our 11-year-old son. The room was spacious and beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is lovely and in a great location, just a few blocks from a Metro Station. Another block past the Metro is the White House. The pool is terrific! After sightseeing all day in very hot temperatures, the pool was a wonderful way to end the day. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend it. No continental breakfast, but we checked other hotels and it doesn't seem to be a standard offering at hotels in DC.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a terrific little Korean restaurant right at the entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station, called Lighter. The couple who run the restaurant are so friendly and the food is delicious!! This Metro station is the closest to the Washington Plaza and the one we used each day. We ate at Lighter twice and would highly recommend it. The prices are very reasonable. You can get authentic Korean food, not just Sushi, and it's terrific! There is also a wonderful little French crepe restaurant called Point Chaud on 14th Street between Washington Plaza Hotel and the McPherson Square Metro station. The cooks are French and you can watch them making the crepes. They are absolutely delicious! Huge assortment of "sweet" and not sweet (such as eggs and meat) fillings available. And the prices are very reasonable!
