It may be old and have nothing fancy about it, but it's the best value and you can't ask for a better location. The rooms are plain but safe and comfortable and reasonably clean. The location is absolutely fantastic and convenient to everything, including the J. Edgar Hoover FBI building which is less than a three minute walk away. It's a short cab ride from Union Station and in an area that's easy to find your way around. The front desk staff are friendly and very helpful and will give you a map of the city upon your arrival. This is a very affordable, no-frills hotel and while it may not be sparkling clean, I did not find it to be filthy as some other reviewers have said. It's a simple, convenient, inexpensive place and perfect for the solo traveler. The only complaint I would have would be that the food in one of the hotel?s three restaurants, Harriet's, is inedible...but there are plenty of places to eat in the area. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to any traveler on a budget.
