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.

Enjoyable visit

The Washington Plaza hotel was comfortable and the room was very nice. Large Bathroom area and nice walk-in closet for suitcases and hang-up clothing. The bathroom were dated but very clean and functional. The location of the hotel was okay. It's a nice hike to the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Nat'l Archives and Capital but closer to the White House. For oversized vehicles like Suburbans or Tahoe's the parking can be a little inconvenient due to a small area to be placed and they don't reserved this area for the larger vehicles. For example when you pull into the parking area smaller cars can park on both levels but larger cars only have about 35-45 parking spots and you have to exit through the entrance and run down a valet to open the gates. If a valet is not available the inside workers are no help. Your stuck. For what you use a hotel for in D.C. it is quite nice and you don't drive much anyway.

Not too far from the White House but quite a hike to the Capital, National Archives. It's not too far from several good restaurants and for a good cheap breakfast try, Au Bon Pain.The Hotel is at the corner of M Street and 14th Street

Real nice place to relax..

After a long rainy day of sightseeing The Washington Plaza Hotel was the perfect place to unwind. The interior was clean and the room was bigger than I thought. The location was great and I'm sure the pool would have been nice to swim in if it wasn't for the weather. The staff was really pleasant from check in to the check out. They even held our bags for us after check out so we could sight see some more. The food was great too espeacially the pizza. I would stay here again for the price.

Could not ask for better

We were in DC for a week of sightseeing, and needed an affordable hotel convienint to all the sights. The Washington Plaza Hotel went far above being just a convenient place to stay; it was a real treat to stay there. From the moment we checked in until we left, we were treated as true guests, rather than just customers. The staff was friendly and attentive, and I noticed they treated all their guests this way, regardless of age or attire. For example, they did not hesitate to hail a taxi for us at 5 am in the rain, and sent an engineer to our room immedately when the key card lock seemed to be acting up (sure enough it was the unit, not me, and after they fixed it we had no further problems). Another thing that impressed me was the complimentary bottled water and newspaper, where most hotels make you "opt out" if you don't want to be charged for them. Although we did not make use of the outdoor pool, it looked very nice for swimming or lounging, and many guests obviously thought so, as it was well attended. We had a corner room on the 9th floor facing Thomas Circle. It was very quiet, with just a hint of traffic noise at peak times (could hear cars when they honked, but not loud enough to bother a light sleeper like me). The room was spacious and clean, with pleanty of closet, drawer, and desk space. If you are going to DC it is likely you will do a lot of walking, and many of the major sights are within walking distance (the White House, the museums along the Mall, DuPont Circle, Chinatown). The McPherson Square Metro station is only two short blocks away, and the DC Metro will get you anywhere else you need to go. Having stayed in many hotels around the world, I can tell you that we have not been treated better than we were at the Washington Plaza. As far as I'm concerned, it is the best hotel value for dollar in DC.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Two blocks down 14th street to the Metro Blue and Yellow lines. Get to know the DC metro as it will take you within walking distance of anywhere in DC in just a few minutes. Fare machines can be confusing and have outdated prices, and some entrance gates work different than others, so take a "pratice run" if you are going to depend on the Metro for a time-sensitive trip.

Great hotel for business stay

It is a great location for getting around the downtown area. Tha staff are very friendly and accommodating. The room was very nicely appointed, elegant but not showy. I would stay at the Washington Plaza any time I visit the city.

Single traveller, pleasure

Third time visited Washington Plaza, literally no complaints, enjoyed everytime. Clean, comfortable, ten minute walk to nearest Metro, onsite restaurant, bit expensive, but quality and staff make up for the price. Would recommend Plaza to anyone planning to visit DC. Nearest Metro is McPhearson Sq,

Great value in Washington, DC

I have really enjoyed my stay at Washington Plaza hotel. The price was much lower than in other places at the same area. And location is perfect: just couple blocs away from the McPherson square metro stop, and generally within walking distance to downtown. Also, ever colorful Dupont circle area is very close. Room was spacious and clean. Both check-in and check-out were fast. I would highly recommend this place.
