Convenient, interesting place. Although not a high end hotel, the fact that it's a old convent and now a business conference center on expansive, beautiful grounds makes it appealing.

Peaceful getaway

Posted 01-Dec-2014
Pros: We liked the location, setting and comfort of the room.
Cons: A small refrigerator would be helpful. Water temp in the Osgood Building ladies room 1st floor sinks is not adjustable and extremely hot.
Location: Close to Washington DC. Beautiful, peaceful setting.
While the temps were chilly in late November, the hotel is part of a large leadership training center with beautiful grounds all around. Unlike other DC area hotels, there is no parking fee and internet service was complimentary. The room was small, but a good value for a weekend, and in excellent condition. We would have liked having a small refrigerator. Otherwise, it was a cozy room in a peaceful setting. The check-in building has a large room with a fireplace stocked with wood to throw on as desired. There is a bar and grill there also. If you choose to dine at the facility, (we had other plans) there is a restaurant that serves meals based upon your dietary needs.

朝ごはんが美味しい

Posted 23-Nov-2014
周りに何もないので、車での移動が必須です。 宿泊費が安く、落ち着くので好んで利用しています。 朝ごはんが美味しいのもポイントと思います。

Not your average hotel.

Posted 14-Nov-2014
Pros: As a converted monastery, the Bolger Center is not your average hotel. Beautiful grounds.
Cons: Keep those wonderful nourishment hubs open for the weekend!
Location: It will help to have a car. I was in the area for a trade show. D.C. and Bethesda are close by.
I had a suite in the Osgood building. It was very comfortable. The staff was terrific. No complaints.

Posted 09-Nov-2014
Pros: Not your cookie cutter hotel atmosphere. As a former monastery, the grounds and building layout were unique. I wish I could spend more time exploring.
Cons: It would be nice to have some of your unique food options available over the weekend. ( specifically the nourishment hubs).
Location: I was in the area for a trade show. You have easy access to D.C., Bethesda and northern Va. You will need a vehicle however.
My suite was clean, comfortable and well located. I was sorry I had to leave!

Nice Hotel in Bethesda

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Pros: Price, location
Cons: The buildings are old but that makes them interesting. You can tell this wasnt originally planned as a hotel. Quirky but thats okay.
Location: Downtown Bethesda has it all. Restaurants, bars and shopping.
I rated this hotel a 3 more for its quirks than anything else. You cant find a reasonably priced hotel in Bethesda but this one fit the bill and is close to many things if you like Bethesda. Dont expect a lot of the normal hotel stuff you see in the lobbies and the hallways are a bit outdated. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The grounds are a huge plus! There is a great walking path and when its nice outside you will enjoy it.

Convention type center

Posted 24-Oct-2014
Pros: Location was good for my visit. All of my travel was within 5 miles with little traffic on the roads. That made it convenient.
Cons: The task of moving luggage from car to room is poor. It was much too far with steps or ramp and elevator inside. The elevator is half way across bui
Location: building. If there was breakfast served I did not see location, nor did I look for such location. There was only one chair in room for seating.
Had to park on grass for overflow condition. They had room ready and did checkin early.

Disappointed

Posted 24-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
I'm a regular at this facility. Paid for room online, arrive at hotel, and no room available till 3 pm. Despite standard checkin being 3 pm, I cannot believe not a single room was cleaned till then. Not attempt to accommodate me. I will not be going back. Nor will I have another conference there.

Hot room

Posted 24-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
My room was on the lower level C101 which made it feel a bit claustrophobic and for some reason I couldn't get the room to cool down even thou I set both thermostats to 65. Other than that it's a nice place and the grounds and facilities are lovely including the Pony Express Bar! -TGD
