Where to stay in Washington D.C? – The Washington Plaza

Where to stay in Washington

It was our first trip together and we weren’t sure where to stay in Washington D.C?

We found a fairly cheap hotel just a short walk from The White House. We weren’t expecting much. So imagine our shock and surprise when a smart (tailcoats and all) gentleman, opened the door to a beautiful glistening lobby. Heaven!


The rooms at Washington Plaza were spacious, clean and offered a massive, comfortable king bed that was so soft and perfect! The hotel is catered to those on business, meaning we were created with a large desk and comfortable desk chair as well as speedy wifi.

Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and polite. Just after we checked in, there was actually a earthquake – the first in 300 years! The hotel were great in keeping everyone calm, providing us with information and giving advise on which attractions and museums will still be open. The front desk were also helpful when I came downstairs in search of a hairdryer!

As mentioned before, the Washington Plaza is literally a 13 minute walk from The White House and just 25 minutes from the collection of Smithsonian Museums. There are two metro stations within a 5-8 minute walk and the hotel is surrounded by a handful of bars, cafes and a CVS.

The hotel cost us $160 per night for a private room. This was a fairly decent price for the area, with cheap hostel rooms available but further out of the city. The hotel was the first ‘fancy’ and luxurious hotel we had stayed in on our travels together and it was definitely worth it. The location and service are definitely worth the price of the stay!

We both loved our stay at this hotel and will be staying here again if we return to Washington D.C.
