The Plaza is not a terrible hotel. I find it curious that the more stars a hotel has, the less in room amentities. In the Plaza's case, you must request a refridgerator ($10), they do not come standard. If you want a hottub, forget it. They only exist in the suites. The rooms are average and the hotel could use some cosmedic surgery.
On the plus side, through the discount sites you can get a room for under $100. If you must travel into DC, the hotel operates a free shuttle every 30 minutes to Reagan airport where you can catch the Metro (subway) starting around 5 A.M.
For food there are 2-3 restraunts around, a grocery store and a liquor store all within about 2 blocks. After that, its about a mile to King st (the main drag) for food and shopping.
Its not bad, its just not good.
