Pleasant stay

Posted 15-Oct-2014
Pros: Great value, convenient location (you'll need a car), beautiful grounds
Location: The hotel is a mile or two off of the main highways, but it's an easy drive and with a car is convenient to both Rockville & Bethesda
The rooms were tight, but very clean and quiet. Great staff. Lots of parking.

Unexpected level of attention for detail

Posted 05-Oct-2014
This was a blind stab in the dark for a "non chain hotel" experience for a short business trip. Figuring out where to go was a little confusing but once I realized where to go for check in, the rest of my stay was great. The restaurant with the breakfast and lunch buffets was very good. The staff takes their jobs seriously and appear to be aligned and directed from solid and experienced management. It was a nice experience and would definitely visit again.

Nice hotel with open spaces. Breakfast is great.

Make sure you have a car. No metro and no cabs around. But it's in the centre of Potomac and the Mall is only 15 mins away.

Overnight stay for access to Washington DC

Posted 27-Sep-2014
Pros: Breakfast was fab. Set in Beautiful Grounds. Room was fantastic.
Location: Near to Westfield shopping mall, 10 mins away, its open till late so great for shopping. Bethesda Metro station for access to Washington DC.
Stayed at this hotel as we wanted somewhere close to Washington DC but not in Washington DC as we did not want to drive in the capital or pay for parking. The Hotel was fantastic, set in beautiful grounds. the room was great with plenty of room. Breakfast was not included in our rate so we paid extra $12 instead of going elsewhere. This was the best $12 spent, breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and plenty of fruit. We only stayed one night, would loved to have stayed longer to make the most of the hotel. 20 mins from Bethesda Metro station for metro into Union station in Washington DC. Hotel provides free shuttle but as we were there at the weekend the parking at the metro station was free so we drove. Staff were very friendly.

This is a "hidden" gem in the Washington area. A former convent and current conference center, it is set in quiet and well-maintained parklands, while still being accessible to Bethesda, DC and Georgetown.

Hidden gem

Posted 20-Sep-2014
I hadn't heard about the Bolger Center before finding it on Expedia. It's a conference center, owned by the USPS, with lots of space to wander around on the grounds. A bit out of the way, but worth a visit.

A very good hotel with fantastic grounds!

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Pros: Clean Room Well appointed room Professional Staff
Cons: Buffet Breakfast, quality of food and service
Location: Quite close to Washington Dulles Airport and DC
I was introduced to the Bolger Centre for a friend's wedding in August/14. The grounds are simply fantastic with beautiful trees and plants. The room was very clean, well organised and quiet. Staff were helpful and professional. I highly recommend this Centre and Hotel.
