Our downtown hotel, which is conveniently located near the Smithsonian museums and the monuments and memorials on the National Mall, has remained a popular choice among discerning business and leisure visitors. Over the last decade, the downtown area has been revitalized by an influx of art galleries, boutique stores, creative eateries, and entertainment venues surrounding Thomas Circle. Following recent restorations, the Washington Plaza now combines its historical attractions with a modern setting steeped in the city’s cultural energy.

The Washington Plaza, with its sophisticated yet relaxed environment, provides the services and accommodations that modern visitors demand. After 55 years, our contemporary hotel still has Washington, DC’s most recognized swimming pool, which offers stunning city views, as well as a prominent location among the nation’s most important sites and buildings.
