location, comfort, friendly staff
Just a few blocks from the museums, white house, etc. Only 40 feet from a CVS. Rooms were nice and clean. My Only complaint was that when asked about parking they told me they have a Valet. Afterwards a friend told me he parked himself for free. Not sure if they changed their rules or it was just poor communication. Either way i paid like 35$ extra each night.
The location is perfect for a family trip to visit Washington D.C. The staff was very helpful in directing us to various sites and helping us navigate the city. Our billing was not correct and it still isn't corrected. I have made two phone calls to the hotel to fix it and still have not had a return call. I will make another call today and hope to hear from them.
the location, clean, good service good stay, did not havd a lot of time to go to the restaurant
A great location within walking distance of the State Dept., where I was attending a conference. Staff was helpful. Renovated room in the north tower was beautiful. Spacious, super clean, full kitchen, new bathroom and carpeting. Comfy bed. CVS and a liquor store adjacent. Need to upgrade cable to HD service. No restaurants or cafes nearby--at least I couldn't find any.
State Plaza provides nice, basic business-type lodging with good service.
The staff were helpful and nice and the location was convenient. The kitchen is a nice convenience, but not needed for a short stay. The carpet in the room was dirty. There is no fan or window in the washroom so steam from the shower stays in the room, this causes humidity and mold. I'm allergic to mold so this was very uncomfortable. The hotel has two towers, and only one common washroom with one stall located in the other tower. If you have a late flight out you can store your suit cases but no place to change. The toiletries were advertised as designer. It was bath and body brand. The washroom was dirty, hair in the tub. I don't recommend the Hotel for physically challenged guests as there are steep stairs up to the elevator from the lobby. I had to struggle with the suitcases up the stairs. Beware that the hotel charges if there are more than 2 occupants in the room. This was not disclosed at booking. They also charge for incidentals at check in. I found this Hotel to be Overpriced for what you get. I stayed at the Marriott down the street last year, I payed about the same and had a much nicer room, pool, etc.
Liked price, location, staff's friendliness & helpfulness, updated rooms, kitchen, breakfast.
Staff was friendly. Gave upgrade to a giant suite when they were out of the room I'd booked since I had arrived late. The hotel was old and it was obvious that it was old.
BEDBUGS. I had to launder everything and throw away my luggage. very annoyed. have stayed here before but will not be going back.
Kitchen and dressing area... very unique! TV didn't work very well. The front desk didn't know all the routes and ways to get to the DULLES airport.
The best part of this hotel is the location. With children at GWU, it's the perfect place to stay to be close to campus, restaurants, and other Washington adventures. The beds and pillows were comfy. I didn't care for the smell of smoke coming in to the bathroom through the fan that ran constantly or tj e broken dial on the heat lamp in the bathroom so that it did not turn off automatically, I asked the gentleman at the front desk about dirty drips on the bathroom floor, the big smear on the bathroom wallpaperor. He said the housekeeping manager was there at the time and he would send her up. No one showed up before I checked out the following day. The 6" x 9" steam/burn on the carpet in the bedroom was also a big eyesore. I also didn't like being evacuated by a false fire alarm at 7 AM.
To begin, the location is second to none. 2 minutes away from the metro. And all the main DC sites are within minutes using the metro. Staff was also great, every morning there was lemon water and apples available for guests to start their day. Ultimately, the place was amazing, no complaints from my side, very clean, very tidy, and comfortable.
Location & Staff Run down A/C didn't work Parking was $40.00 + $7.50 (Tax)
Staff was amazing and attentive, location great Could use some updating
We all enjoyed staying at the hotel. The location was convenient and the reception area personnel were very accomodating. We all felt that the breakfast was too expensive, for what was offered. Also, the service was awful.
We loved that the hotel was within walking distance to the Kennedy Center and the Mall. The staff was wonderful, but occasionally there would be a line at the desk so a second person would have been nice. Parking is done by a valet for $40 a day. They went out of their way to make it convenient for us especially when we were in a hurry. One of the desk staff actually walked us to the Metro stop when we asked how to get there. How much better can it get! I would have liked it if they had a restaurant, even a small one, on site. Breakfast would be awesome but I'm not sure they have the room. The hallways were badly overheated and the room was too so we actually opened the window at night to be comfortable.
I really like the staff there and the fruits, candy and maps prepared for us. It's 15 minites walk to the white house. Location is beatiful and convinient. It was a little bit noisy at night because someone next door or above was talking. The noise cancelling was not that good.
Location, staff, adjustable fan in the room (quiet AC).
The rooms were a very good size, had separate living and sleeping space, and a kitchenette. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The best part was it's proximity to the Foggy Bottom metro stop, which put all of DC within reach. Otherwise it's only about a 20 minute walk to reach the monuments at the end of the mall. Parking costs extra, and street parking Is near impossible
The facilities, furniture, and furnishings are a bit older, but you get room to spread out in, the location is excellent, and the price is relatively inexpensive. It was great for a group visiting DC to explore all the wonderful sights to see. We had absolutely no complaints!
Great location, friendly staff, and large rooms with kitchen inside.
Staff was VERY helpful, cheerful, and knowledgeable. The only problem was a dance competition that was held nearby. When the competitors arrived at 2:00am it was a bit noisy.
The people next to our room was terrible. They had a party all night long and the courtyard staff seemed ignorant how much noisy they created to other guests.
The location was great and the value was excellent. We were told a breakfast was included so we expected a continental breakfast, but it was a la carte for fee instead. Not a huge deal though.
The location was great! The hotel is only a few blocks from the White House and National Mall. The valet parking was $36 per day and I don't believe there were any self parking options available other than on the street. Street parking must be paid until 10:00 on Saturday night and is free on Sunday.
Nice room and clean and should be for $340 No fine dining within a 15 minute walk. Only college kid joints $36 a night to park the car?? Puh-lease! It costs less at the Ritz. Maid forgot to make up the room.
Walking distance to White House and monuments $40 a day for parking
The room was very clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We ate breakfast at the in-hotel cafe and it was very good. They have a few booths in the cafe which have built-in TVs which would be very handy especially for families. It's a good location. There is a Subway and Starbucks on the same block and a CVS Pharmacy 2 blocks away which is open 24-hours a day. 3 1/2 blocks (1/3 mile) north is 2000 Penn Shopping Center with a bakery, Chipotle, Betucci's Brick Oven, and other restaurants and shops. The pool was small. There was a person swimming laps and the pool is so narrow that we felt like we were encroaching on her space.
Very clean, room was nice. Staff was great. Pool not great, but we were sightseeing, so not a big deal.
Valent parking, warm cookies upon check-in, coffee/tea and fresh fruit available for breakfastin lobby There should have been tea in th room,not just coffee. Also there was no sugar
it is perfect for a fast stay in DC lacks lots of services... no lobby or room service
The location was ideal. Short walking distance to the Kennedy Center, restaurants along the Potomiac River, and the Mall.
Close to metro. They tried to accomodate my request of having a quiet room, away from the elevator. Overall, staff was friendly. Thin walls, could hear everything going on in the adjoining room. Only one elevator of the two worked, though the staff tried to tell me otherwise when I asked (I had been there for 4 days by then and waited several minutes each time for the ONE elevator door to open). I tried to print my boarding pass in the business center, only to find out that the other computer was the only one which would print- why wasn't there a sign telling users this? I finally gave up after 10 more minutes of trying to print, as their internet was painfully slow. Not close to many restaurants unless you don't mind a 15 minute walk to the riverfront.
