Welcome to the Lenfant Plaza Hotel
You won't find a better location — a little more than a block from the National Mall and atop a metro station — than at the downtown L'Enfant Plaza Hotel.
This 15-floor, 370-room hotel sits in a quiet neighborhood filled with government agencies. The hotel is suited for business travelers, but even better for vacationing families. Rooms have pillowtop mattresses with three layers of 310-thread-count sheets. You can enjoy the view from your private balcony (some rooms overlook the Potomac River or the National Mall) or from the heated rooftop pool. Wi-Fi is available. As far as dining goes, there's a casual bistro and a pub in the hotel. Parking is available.
If you're planning to sightsee, the L'Enfant Plaza's location will save you lots of time. It's one block from the National Museum of African Art, two from the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and four from the National Air and Space Museum. All the other Smithsonian museums on the National Mall are within walking distance. Four of the five lines of the Metro system are directly downstairs. There's also a shopping mall below the hotel where you can buy essentials. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is five miles away — or just four stops by Metro.
A "can't-be-beat" location that's within walking distance of the White House and Mall wins raves from Priceline guests at L'Enfant Plaza, where the "courteous" staff also gets shout-outs.

This hotel is in a great location - walking distance to the National Mall and many Smithsonian museums. They are doing construction and it is very noisy right now. The staff was completely unhelpful in recommending restaurants, couldn't give us driving directions and the conseigere was never available. I probably wouldn't stay their again. Wifi was $11 per day which is a ridiculus price. ...

We enjoyed everything about the hotel other than the sheet issue. The location was perfect. The staff was friendly enough. The dining was delicious as we had dinner there one of our two nights.

For most of the traveling we do, Priceline is our main way of booking hotels. We trust the hotels that they have. Generally, they are wonderful. This hotel falls far below a minimum, decent standard. We are shocked that Priceline would allow them to be on their list. It makes Priceline lose its credibility when it comes to hotels. We trust that Priceline has a minimum, reasonable standard for all the hotels that they represent. We asked the hotel to give us a different room, and they complied. The problem was the second room was no better than the first. There was a cocoon along the wooden headboard of the bed. The carpet was threadbare and stained. The furniture was wearing out and had stains on the upholstery. The wallpaper was peeling back. The bathtubs and pictures were worn out. Other than in the main areas, the rooms should have been renovated 10 years ago. There were no restaurants in the area, and the hotel overcharged for the food that they served. My greatest contention is not with the hotel, but with Priceline who should not be allowing such hotels on their sites. ...

The rooms could use a little updating.
