Do yourself a favor and stay away from the President Inn in Washington DC if you value your health and your life. They are now under investigation by the Atty Generas Office and the consumer protection agency. I reported them due to the filth, the bugs, rats, and the disease my daughter got from contaminated Mattress and or Linens. Its in a horrible neighborhood with hookers inside and outside the hotel. Please type in President Inn DC Reviews in your google search and read the horrifying reviews about this hotel and then stay away for your personal protection. You have been warned.
As a matter of fact, I stayed there... and I cannot agree less. Sure, it isn't high class, but what do you want for $60 a night. The neighborhood is black... if that's what you mean by unsafe. There were zero hookers inside on the two nights I stayed there, and my room was just fine. Not spectacular, fine. Clean enough, too. The receptionist was nice, told me what's worth to see where, and let me check in early.
By the way, I walked all the way from the Union Station to the hotel on foot... and can safely attest to the fact that other than being ethnically defined, there was nothing 'wrong' with the neighborhood.
As a matter of fact, I'm going to D.C. day after tomorrow, and will stay in the President Inn again.
