The hotel is wonderful, and in the greatest location. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Our banquet, which was a surprise 50th birthday, was fantastic! The hotel organized it beautifully. I dI'd not get a chance to really walk the grounds, but I plan to next time. I definitely want to come back in the spring for a night away... More

I wish I had kept the pictures so I could post them. I literally found the smallest hotel room I have ever seen in my life. I estimate it was 10x12. The dresser would hit the bed if you opened it all the way. Seriously, I had more room in a barracks than this place. It was awful. The rooms... More

Bolger Center, and old government facility, is currently a great hotel location. It is huge. There are many buildings, and I was only in a few. My room was on the ground floor of building C....and I really don't think there was any one else staying on that floor for the tour nights we were there! Very, very quiet!! Silent!!... More

In the 11 nights I stayed at the Bolger Conference Center, I only encountered the most friendly, gracious, and helpful staff....from the custodians and maids to the front desk and chefs at the restaurant. The grounds were beautiful, food was excellent, and even the exercise equipment well maintained....if you are in the DC area you must stay here.
