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.

Excellent Stay

Great location-two blocks from the Metro. Very helpful staff, newly renovated-comfortable, beautifully decorated rooms. And a great price on the web through a discount travel site.

Nice place to stay with kids

The washington Plaza hotel workd out great for my three kids and I. we were able to walk to the mall (about 10 minutes) and the 4th of July fireworks were great. The pool was extra nice, especially the lounge chairs and pillows! I've never been to a hotel pool with more comfortable lounge chairs and pillows to boot. I could have read and relaxed all day! The only negative was the elevators were being worked on, so there was abit of a wait for the 2 that were working.Plenty of good restauraunts around...again all in walking distance. I would highly recommend it for the price.

Superior Service

The Washington Plaza Hotel is an excellent property. I have had the opportunity to stay with them twice this year. Front desk clerk, was both helpful and pleasant, in accomodating room change requests and reservation extensions. The pool and restaurant staff, are also the most friendly and sincere I've expereinced in travels. If in the area again I will plan on returning to the Washington Plaza... preferrably room 426.

Fantastic!!

Great location, walking distance to everything you would want to see also near metro stations in the event you don't want to walk so much. CVS pharmacy across the street in case you forget anything. Awesome Awesome Awesome food at the hotel if your tired from your day of sight seeing and don't want to go out. Great staff, housekeeping awesome. Can't think of anything negative to say at all. Didn't want to leave and come back home.

My review of Washington Plaza Hotel

The hotel had a very nice lobby area as well as an outdoor pool with plenty of table and chairs around. The staff was quite friendly. Our car broke down while on our trip, and the staff quickly got us help to fix the situation. There were a few nice places in the area to get a refreshment and we were fairly close to the metro to see the sights.

My review of Washington Plaza Hotel

I was impressed with this very well-kept property and its courteous staff. Especially impressive was the deck-chair-lined outdoor pool with pool-side bar. Rooms were clean and comfortable. And the price was right. My only regret was that it wasn't located closer to the Metro rail. After full days at the Mall in 90-degree heat, it was a long, agonizing walk from the Metro to the hotel. Not much in the area for dining choices either.

Great value for the location

The Washington Plaza is very centrally located and though the building is a bit older it is very well maintained and the rooms are spacious and clean. The pool and outdoor lounge area looked like it would be quite pleasant in season.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Walking up Massachusetts Avenue in front of the hotel towards the higher numbered streets will bring you to the Dupont area and then a further walk up Connecticut from the Dupont circle will also bring you to the Adams Morgan neighborhood. Both Dupont and Addams Morgan have an interesting mix of shops and various ethnic restaurants etc.

Great place to stay.

Central location for doing the tourist things. Close to the Metro. Staff was very friendly. Nice rooms. I asked staff to recommend nearby restaurants and bars. Several within walking distance were a real good time.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND

The location was easily located by car, and then close to the metro for sightseeing. The staff was wonderful and very professional. On a previous trip, I left a suit in the lobby while checking out and didnt realize it until weeks later. I called the hotel, they had saved the suit, were very helpful, and mailed it back to me. I would reccomend this hotel.

Outstanding deal

We were there strictly for vacation. While not perfect, the location is very good. It was about a 6 block walk (downhill) to the Metro station. There were always cabs available if we wanted one. The hotel restaurant was very good - not a huge menu - and worked out great when the weather turned against us. There is a growing area for restaurants, shops, and a Whole Foods just about 4 blocks away on P street. The staff could not have been nicer, especially in the restaurant. The bar is quiet but well appointed. The hotel is apparently into a floor-by-floor renovation. While I did not see the new rooms myself, my wife said that they were very nice. If you are the kind of person who needs to be surrounded by fabulous decor and trendy rooms, this may not be for you however. The lobby area, while absolutely spotless, was a stylistic mish-mash from several different decades. The rooms, again, absolutely spotless, were not overly large and had some unusual decorating choices. But this was all very minor to me. Cleanliness and good service are what I need from a hotel and this one had both. There is a fitness center but I did not partake. There is a large pool with a huge surrounding deck area but it was closed for the season.
