Glad we got to see this place. Beautiful inside. There are a few casual food restaurants here. It can be busy depending on the bus schedule. There are a lot of homeless people inside and outside. I would be hesitant to go at night.

Parking near the Union Street station is extremely bad with the construction that is going on.. It is a major thoroughfare for buses, taxi's and federal civil servants who work in the area. There are Senate buildings nearby as well as a federal court which makes parking difficult. Constitution Avenue is your best bet but pay close attention to the parking signs, rules and regulations
