Charming boutique hotel - more spacious than expected. Very comfortable beds, desk, separate kitchenette area with mini fridge/freezer and sink but no microwave.
Bathroom adequate but unusual wobbly rubber floor to tub ( almost like standing on water bed).
Excellent location for visiting monuments and museums. Near GWU, great gluten-free options, Whole Foods, but a bit noisy at night with sirens.
White noise machine took care of that easily.
Considering the price, overall excellent value.
Will definitely choose again but would really like microwave added to spacious kitchen.
"Large suites with kitchens at affordable prices."
We first stayed at the State Plaza 25 years ago when we didn't have much money. It was truly a value priced hotel. We returned 5 years later out of nostalgia. We had moved up to 4.5-5 star hotels by then.
We stayed 3 weeks and loved it. We stayed in the Plaza Suite which was huge and a third of the price of a simple room at the Four Seasons or Mandarin, our usual go to hotels. The hotel is 2 blocks from the Mall/Lincoln Memorial. It's in George Washington University. The location is safe and beautiful, The CVS next door and FOBO Market provide all the necessary groceries to stock your suite's kitchen, Their is lots of FREE street parking,
Our last stay was at the completion of their renovation. It now looks like a 3.5 star hotel.
I highly recommend this hotel for families with children. Children need SPACE! Once you enjoy a suite at the State Plaza, it's hard to go back to a mere room.
We have stayed at the State Plaza several times over the past few years adding up to probably 4-5 months in total. The State Plaza is our hotel in DC.
Within walking distance to Whole Foods Market, a neat Mediterranean eatery called Roti, with a similar set up to Chipotle. Two hour parking available on street is scarce, but we were always able to find it, and time our expeditions to avoid the $40 per day parking fee at the hotel. The local traffic was quite congested, but we were able to visit the majority of the monuments and museums by finding two or three hour metered parking on the street our whole vacation. We cannot recommend "&pizza" highly enough! You can customize your oblong shaped individual pizza, which is made in front of you using the freshest, high-quality ingredients and crusts to die for. An added bonus are the homemade craft sodas which are delicious, using unusual ingredients such as pear, fig, passionfruit, birch and anise. Do not miss the portrait museum! This was the highlight of our trip – it is not as overrun and noisy like the natural history Museum.
So named because of the fog that once rolled into the neighborhood from the Potomac River, Foggy Bottom is home to some of the capitol's most important landmarks, including the Kennedy Center, the Department of State, and the World Bank. With visitors that include celebrities and international dignitaries, it's no wonder the neighborhood offers plenty of sophisticated lodging and dining options.
