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.

nice location, good value for price

We stayed for 3 nights. It is conveniently located in a nice neighborhood and walking distance to a great restaurant area. The room was quite small but worked for us as we are out all the time. Our main concern was the constant humming noise coming from the central HVAC. It is like white noise and we've gotten used to it after a while.

Great stay during a conference

I can't say much about the amenities because the pool was closed when we arrived and we weren't at the hotel much during our stay. I will say that our room was nicer than we expected, though the bathrooms could use a little updating. We utilized the free wi-fi, which was a great bonus! The staff was warm and welcoming... The front desk staff was nice enough but the bell captains were beyond courteous. They gave great directions and suggestions. We were participating in a weekend conference where most events were at the convention center or nearby. This is slightly set away from that area, but for the price it was well worth it. The hotels near the convention center are much more expensive and we never walked more than 10 minutes to our events so the value was great for us. I would stay here again, as my job brings me to DC often. I recommend if you want a good value!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

DC is actually quite small. Check your google map for walking distance before you hop in a cab (which is astronomically expensive). We are from Philly and know quite a bit about cabs... We couldn't believe how much the first few cabs we took were. We decided to start walking and noticed that the traffic makes places seem much farther away than they are. In many cases, you are better off walking. You'll save a ton of cash and get a better look at this beautiful, walkable city.

Great Value in Central DC

The Washington Plaza is located in a very convenient central location. The rooms are ok, and the common facilities are great. But most importantly, it has an amazing, attentive staff

great staff, small room

Overall I had a good experience at the hotel. It is a bit of a walk from a Metro station but otherwise well-situated near downtown. Staff were very polite and attentive. I ordered room service for a 6:30 am breakfast and it arrived on time (actually 5 minutes early). My only complaint is that my room was located near the elevators and I could hear them moving up and down while in my room. I had a shower stall instead of a tub but didn't mind.

El Centro, a "modern" Mexican restaurant is up 14th Street from the hotel -- fish tacos were excellent, and there is an extensive tequila menu.

Loved the location, price, and friendliness of the staff. Very good internet access. Only problem was the position of the TV. Could only watch from the bed.

Very diverse neighborhood from homeless beggers to the extremely wealthy. It would seem that caution is needed but people moved around with a strong sense of safety.

Would stay there again.

The hotel was located about half a mile from the White House. My wife and I and a grandson stayed for four nights and went out each day to see the sights. The hotel was about 0.6 mile from the White House (as the crow flies), about a 15 minute walk. It is about 1.6 miles from the capitol and 1.2 miles from the Washington Monument and 1.6 miles from the Lincoln Memorial. We walked to each and visited other sites along the way. There was a Metro station about 3-4 blocks away. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have what appears to be a very nice dining room, but we didn't eat there. A bit pricey for our budget. The room was clean and comfortable. Our grandson loved the pool. There are many restaurants within a few blocks. Most are fast food places that we felt had good food served very quickly for the most part. They were sandwich and salad places with some other foods on the menu. We didn't go to any of them during the heavy traffic parts of the day.
