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.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

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

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.

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.

Great rate, great staff!

The Plaza was wonderfully located between Dupont Circle and the Mall, with a Metro station just blocks away. The staff was fabulous in getting last minute details worked out so my presentation the next morning went smoothly. The room was clean and spacious - in a neighborhood that was safe with plenty of restaurants within a few blocks. I will definitely be staying here when I return!

Whether your taste is for American, Ethyopian, or somewhere in between you will find it within three to five blocks of this hotel! The staff provided a great list of restaurants within walking distance and a price scale so you aren't surprised. Overall prices of the nearby restaurants are reasonable - what I pay usually in restaurants in the Plains states!

Washington Plaza Review

The hotel staff was amazing. The hotel is very beautiful inside. They have a great breakfast buffet. The pool looks amazing but it was closed. It is located in a clean and very productive area of the city.
