Front Desk

Needs re-training when Hotel is booked through Travelocity’s app. I stayed at this hotel for 35 days instead of an intended one week and renewed in segments promptly each check-out date. The Front Desk always embarrassed me and my wife with calls about payment even after I told them countless times to check their system because I book through Tavelocity’s website App. I’m checking out for this very reason. Other Staff: housekeeping, doormen, bartenders were very professional and extremely friendly.

Initially I booked a 5 day stay but extended to two weeks. My room was upgraded at no extra cost. Washington Plaza is smack in the middle of downtown and walking distance to all the important stuff that makes one travel to DC. The hotel rate is affordable and the added bonus by Travelocity went a long way to make this stay very pleasant and memorable

Great Place to Stay in Washington, DC

Pros: Convenient location Extremely courteous and helpful staff Clean, comfortable room Easy access to public transportation (e.g., Metro, Bus)
Cons: I can't think of one area where the hotel needed to improve.
Location: We came to DC to see many of the monuments in the DC and China town. Many of the locations were close enough to walk to.
This was my wife and my first trip to DC. The hotel was highly rated so we decided to stay. From the doorman opening the door to the hotel, to the desk clerks, and the other staff - everyone was eager to serve us. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and gave us many tips on sites to see. Ground transportation (bus, Metro) is readily accessible from the hotel.. Close proximity to many of the attractions was another plus. Many of the sites are close enough to walk to. The room was comfortable and clean. We'll be staying at the hotel next time we go to DC.

Very nice

Pros: Pool; it had (small) fitness center; safe location
Cons: Serve co tine tap breakfast without charge
Location: Few blocks from nearest metro. $15 cab ride from DCA. Bike rental shop nearby, as well as many restaurant choices and price range.
Hotel was in a nice, safe area. I enjoy walking, so easy access to downtown, museums and monuments (20-30 min walk). Staff friendly and helpful. Nice pool. Fitness center small but did the trick.
