We were surprised by just how nice the State Plaza really is, which made it an even bigger value. Huge updated room, great bed, linens and shower, warm and helpful staff, in-house restaurant with well-prepared, reasonably priced dishes. The location is WONDERFUL -- GWU neighborhood, easy 7-8 minute walk to the metro station, restaurants and a Whole Foods, 15-minute walk...

Spacious, well appointed room with a charming bathroom and lovely amenities. Great location. Clean and comfortable. Was initially offered a room on ground floor which was not to my liking as it was close to meeting rooms clearly set up for use later that evening and was offered another room on a higher floor immediately. Has the feel of a...

State Plaza Hotel dates back to the early 1950s. The only sign of age now is an elevator slow as molasses. All other features are definite signs of comfort. The staff was incredible. There is even a doorman! Any questions we had about the area were immediately answered, some came complete with maps. The hotel is a mere 6 blocks...

The State Plaza is a typical city hotel with few frills but in a great location to view Washington's monuments. It sits in a quiet area of the town, but only a short stroll from "The Mall" where all the war memorials are, together with the Lincoln memorial and Martin Luther King's. Downtown is about a 20 minute walk away,...

We arrived earlier than check in time and were given an available room straight away. This was greatly appreciated after a night of travel. The room was big and having kitchen facilities meant we could keep a few things in the fridge. Housekeeping very attentive but if you don't like interruptions for a morning newspaper or bottled water at night...

I will get the small glitch out of the way: upon check-in, I was asked for my credit card. I specifically asked if this was for incidentals (I wanted to use a different card to pay for the entire stay). I was told "yes, just $60 hold". After checking in I received a message to come to the front desk...

Stayed here for the astd conference last week. Only a 30 minute walk to mt Vernon square. Service was excellent. Value was outstanding. The only two "complaints" I have are rooms are outdated and hotel restaurant isn't very good.
