Last week, I focused on the old Greyhound bus terminal, showing what it looks like now and giving some history. If you recall, it is now primarily an entrance lobby for a rather large building behind it … but what was originally where that new building is now?
Well, you guessed it, it was the Hotel Annapolis, located on the north side of H street between 11th and 12th streets, NW. I can’t imagine it was a high end hotel in the 1960s, but I’m sure it played an active and important role in the 1940s being next to the Greyhound station
