              Everyone was most helpful. The room was quite nice and we were within walking distance to the Metro and many areas of interest.

              This hotel is horrible and overpriced. I felt like I was staying in an old ladies house with 5 star soap in the bathroom. The staff were useless and they raised the rates on me once the flights were cancelled due to the volcano in Iceland. Boo on this hotel. Stay somewhere else in Washington it is not worth the location. Take a taxi from a far away hotel and save your money.

              Location in the University district of Washington within walking distance of the center and all the attractions - or an $8 taxi ride. Rooms comfortable with kitchen, dressing room and small bathroom. Large comfortable beds by European standards. Hotel was quiet.

              Nothing really - you pay for the location compaired to motorway motels.

              The location is ok, the rooms are big and kitchenette is more usefull.

              Housekeeping was rather bizzare - the maids came to our room late in the day, sometimes even after 4pm. The internet connection keep breaking down.

              Staff was willing to try to fix problems. Location was great and it was very quiet.

              No wifi in room. Cold water tap not working in shower. Very limited kitchen supplies. Service in the restaurant was not good.

              There was so much room, and the bed was really comfortable after a long day of walking. The staff was also really friendly. The location was great - safe, quiet, and in a residential area of the city. I am trying to decide if it was the hotel or the Foggy Bottom neighborhood that I liked more! While there is a short walk to the metro, I really enjoyed it. It was close to the sights of DC, but far enough (though really not far) to feel like I was escaping the tourists at the end of the day.

              The taxes that were on my final bill, but not mentioned/included in my booking. I've booked a lot of hotels through websites over the last few years and this is the first time that taxes were added on at the end of the stay. The good deal I thought I was getting (the reason I chose the hotel) was not such a good deal after all - it totaled $130 extra dollars, or the price of another night's stay. I felt tricked.

              The confort in the beds and the room's size.

              Is not well the internet. In my roon it didn't work. Only you can have a good signal in the lobby. In rooms you have to connect but insn't wireless and the signal is very poor.

              I liked having a full kitchen that I used for quick breakfast fare.

              Furnishings were a bit old and tired.

              Perfect location if you have friends at George Washington University. The staff was excellent. The beds are so comfortable. I enjoyed my stay at the State Plaza Hotel.

              Last year I stayed in a better suite for the same period of time and it was cheaper than the suite I got this time. The suite I stayed in last year was so much bigger than the State Room Suite and was much cheaper
