Resort feel in the middle of downtown !!
We spent many nights planning this trip and hotel selection was difficult....more modern, more established, trendy, conservative....in the end we chose wisely !!!!! The Washington Plaza, while somewhat dated in terms of design, was outstanding in terms of facilities and cleanliness...moreover, the staff were superb!
We arrived to very welcoming staff at the door and took advantage of the onsite valet parking (which was significantly cheaper than most other hotels that ended up parking your car somewhere else). Check-in was perfectly smooth with the front desk staff having all the reservation details online. We had requested an adjoining room which the hotel was happy to fulfill...great layout...2 side by side rooms, but share a single double door to the hallway. We spent the rest of the week touring around on foot, hop-on / off bus and rented bicycle...great location, approximately 15walk to White House. The weather during our week was amazing and extremely hot....how great that we were able to return to our hotel each afternoon and head out to the outside resort complete with pool, bar, umbrella's and reclining chairs...think that they are the only hotel in Washington with this kind of setup. The topping on the cake was a very good breakfast buffet (complete with fresh on-request omelette and waffles) and a selection of hot plates and fresh fruit for a reasonable price. No concierge, but the front desk were extremely knowledgeable about local restaurants !!
