The various options of the Plaza itself are nothing to make a trip for. Best only of you happen to be there and don't want to take the time to go anywhere else. The prime benefit here is adjacency to a metro station which is convenient to the National Mall/Smithsonian.

He did a quick weekend trip to D.C. and booked at the Hilton in L’ Enfant Plaza. About the best location we could have picked. Walking distance to the Wharf for entertainment and great restaurants, and walking distance to the Mall and all of the monuments and museums. And in front is the Spy museum! A must visit. One tip, plan 2 hours min per museum. So much to see. Highlights were: capital building and a chance opportunit to witness a senate in session, lincoln memorial and washington monument at night, the National Air and Space museum, and the Spy museum.

We went to the spy museum and grabbed a bite to eat at the food court downstairs. My only complaint is that they need to have more A/C in the general part of the building.!

The plaza was very clean, and although some of the restaurants were closed my group and I were all pleased with our meals after visiting the spy museum. The property is very clean and well lit. The security guards and a cleaning lady were both very friendly. I subtracted one star because of my terrible experience I had in the parking garage.

Was finishing a trip with my 10 year old daughter to the National Mall and saw many dining options here on the map. We were headed to the airport next so the blue line Metro stop that is in the building was an added bonus.

We went inside the food court on a Sunday at 5:00PM. None of the shops were open and we walked through the entire place to find only the Panda Express open for dining. I have no idea what the hours are but it seems 5:00PM any day of the week a dining place would be open for business.

Panda Express was a bit busy which wasn't surprising since that was the only dining option. The building has been recently remodeled so it is nice.

L'Enfant Plaza includes the Spy Museum, a hotel, Metro Station, and food court. There are a few touristy shops. The access to Metro is certainly convenient. The food and shops are nothing special.

This plaza is the best of all worlds. It is a Metro stop for one. You have multiple food options to choose from. There is also a Hilton hotel with direct access there. It is a win win win place to be.

Hilton L’Enfant is excellent and there is a great food court and shopping adjacent. Walking distance to National Mall and many monuments.

Since the adjacent museum times your entry, I thought I would fill the time and get a cup of plain black coffee. Well, guess what? This is not happening on a Saturday afternoon. Many of the restaurants and retail areas are closed. Puzzling. If you do happen to find something you want to eat, indoor and outdoor seating is available.
