Washington Plaza Hotel
Time Out says
Believe it or not, this affordable hotel is home to one of the city’s best rooftop pools, complete with outstanding views of DC’s skyline and monuments. The building’s sleek, white exterior channels the futuristic ‘60s era during which it was built, but don’t expect that to be the case for the 340 guest rooms: They have all been renovated and modernized, alongside the suites and fitness center that guests can also take advantage of. Centrally situated on DC’s Thomas Circle, guests are within walking distance to several hot restaurants and bars found along 14th Street and Dupont Circle, not to mention the White House and the shops at CityCenterDC.
Time Out tip: If the seasonal pool is closed, don’t despair: You can still sip on cocktails by the fireplace at International Bar.
