Washington Plaza Hotel
Originally opened in 1962 as the International Inn, now the Washington Plaza Hotel is one of two hotels designed by Morris Lapidus in Washington, DC (the other being the Capitol Skyline Hotel, also listed here on DNA Hotels). It underwent several renovations, but still a lot of Lapidus' designs can be spotted throughout this iconic hotel.
Renovated rooms are decorated with mahogany furniture and red accents. Each room has a leather chair, a work desk, a satellite TV, a coffee maker and a private bathroom.
The huge outdoor landscaped pool area is clearly inspired by Lapidus' hometown Miami Beach where he created such famous hotels as The Fontainebleau, Eden Rock, Deauville and The Americana. In summer, poolside dining is possible. The hotel has a fitness centre, a restaurant and a bar/lounge.
The area around Thomas Circle, where the hotel is located, is at the edge of some neighbourhoods quickly gentrifying. The McPherson metro station is a short walk, while the White House and the Washington Convention Center are five blocks away.
