5.5.13 Wonderful and raving reviews for the Washington Plaza Hotel. Absolutely no evidence of beg bugs. I brought bed bug spray just in case, but never had to use it.
The room was spacious, exceptionally clean, and accommodating. The staff - front desk, room delivery service, front door attendants, cleaning crew - were exceptionally friendly with over the top service.
I would recommend the Washington Plaza Hotel to everyone staying in the DC area.

I checked in last night 1/3/11 and within 15 minutes of walking into the room I spotted a bedbug crawling across the white sheets. I grabbed the plastic bag in the ice bin and caught the bug. I called the front desk and they offered to give me another room. Then a maid and maintenance worker came to my room and tried to play it off like it wasn't a big deal. The maid took the bug in the bag and would not give it back to me so I could bring it down to the front desk. She insisted that she would s
how it to them. I don't know if she ever did, but I have pictures of it, so it's all good.
I eventually just asked to check out and get a refund. I went to stay with a friend instead. The front desk people were not that accommodating, but not rude or anything. They didn't seem surprised at all though, which leads me to believe that this place has had reports before. A coworker stayed there 2 nights and was fine. Maybe it was just that one room. Who knows.
