I was looking for a place to stay that would allow me to get to the Capitol at 8:00 a.m. without fighting traffic. All of the downtown places are expensive and have exorbitant parking fees. I noticed Habitat and was suspicious because of the price. The area doesn't look great, a mostly boarded up shopping mall, vacant office buildings, and a strip club-- but the Habitat complex is like a little bit of heaven tucked into all that. It is a former apartment complex, so you don't get a room, you get an apartment. The grounds are lushly landscaped and the parking areas are well-lit. Our apartment was very clean, aside from some peeling wallpaper and stains on the sofa. There was a full sized coffee pot in the kitchen along with enough locally roasted coffee to make a full pot! A full, hot breakfast is served in a lovely dining room and is attended by two very pleasant gentlemen. The person at the front desk recommended a route to the Capitol that avoided the interstate. We drove to the Capitol in about 15 minutes! If you don't have a car, there is a bus stop across the street and a Metro rail stop about a half-mile down the street. I will definitely be back to the Habitat Suites!
