Nice hotel close to the Mall/Lincoln Memorial

Pros: Just about everything, but the staff really makes it for me. Also it is reasonably priced comparatively speaking
Cons: A choice of pillow density. Their pillows are quite soft and I prefer a firmer one. I'm not a big fan of comforters instead of blankets...a bit too he
Location: George Washington University, nearby reasonably priced restaurants, the Mall, 6 blocks to the metro.
I have stayed here in the past and was very satisfied. This visit I was very impressed with the staff. Whatever I needed they were there for me. Very personable, professional, and friendly. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. It is away from downtown so is quiet. It is a short 4-5 block walk downhill to the Lincoln Memorial end of the Mall. I was there to re-visit the Vietnam Memorial...the Wall. I would stay there again any time I am in D.C.

Cut Above Hotel

Pros: Everything - really.
Location: Federal offices, White House, war memorials, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Kennedy Center, George Washington U all within walking distance.
This was our first visit to D.C. and the hotel has a great location for getting around. Its a short walk to the hop-on-hop-off buses, the Metro, the White House, the National Mall, and many of the must-see sites and monuments. The hotel mini-suite was comfortable and very clean, the entire staff was friendly and cordial, and the hotel restaurant was excellent, there is a fitness center for guest - nothing negative about the State Plaza. The only things missing, which is not the fault of the hotel, was a grocery store (a nearby drug store and convenience store offer some items) and the lack of good restaurants within walking distance in the evening. We would recommend the State Plaza to anyone looking for comfort and a hotel that is a cut-above. Should we return to D.C., we would definitely consider the State Plaza.

Sweet Little Hotel in Foggy Bottom

My granddaughter and I stayed at State Plaza Hotel for 3 nights during our March 2017 sightseeing trip to DC. The hotel has a very good location for public transportation. It's near the corner of Virginia and E St., which has a Metrobus stop and is only 4 blocks to the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro Station. We were able to easily reach all of the National Mall, monuments, museums, Chinatown, etc. from there. It is near the heart of the George Washington University Campus (interesting for my teen granddaughter to see) and the GWU Hospital. The only downside for some might be the frequent ambulance and police sirens because of the location but it didn't disturb our rest. Next door is a liquor store and a 24-hour CVS. Nearby there's a public-accessible GWU student area, with a Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Pita Pit and Potbelly Sandwiches. The hotel has a Garden Café which is very nice. They offered large salads, fish & chips, chicken quesadilla, pasta Bolognese, crab cakes and more. Good quality, fresh tastes, nice atmosphere, quiet. They had a bar and a selection of dinner wines. Prices were neither inexpensive nor extravagant for DC. While the building itself seems older, our bathroom/room was very bright and clean, modern, tastefully decorated and had a very comfortable bed. Modern elevator, if somewhat slow. Bottled water is delivered to your room each evening with a note wishing you a peaceful rest. Nice touch. Great staff. Would be very happy to stay here again.

I love this place.

Pros: Everything
Cons: nope
Location: Perfect for Kennedy Center and State Department.
Originally booked because it used to be the apartment building I lived in 50 years ago as a student at GWU. Everything looked familiar. Nice efficiency with workable kitchen. Clean friendly staff. Short walk to two Metro stations.
