The Bolger Center is an outstanding place to stay when visiting the DC if you're looking for a quiet place outside the downtown area. Rooms are clean and well appointed and a terrific value. Excellent restaurant on-site. Beautiful grounds.

Excellent hotel hidden in Potomac, which provides clean and functional rooms, excellent service and close to Montgomery Mall. Have been here several times and will return. Not fancy but very reasonable.

Good price. My family came from different parts of the country so the Intake process confused the staff, who seemed frustrated with us. We came here for a family gathering rather than for business, so the amenities were limited for us (breakfast ended at 9am, which was too early for a vacation). I suspect if you are here for a...

We wanted to stay close to Bethesda,MD where my son lives. This location is great, not in the city with no noise. I wish we had time to enjoy the restaurant, we heard they were very good. Next time we visit our son we will sure to book here. The rooms were cozy, like a bed and breakfast. Loved the... More

Over all, this hotel is very outdated, overpriced and not very accommodating. The rooms were crowded, poorly laid out. Bed was hard as a rock. Just very stressful staying there. Menus were not very well planned. Meals were very expensive. Not restful at all.

After reading the review as well as the comments from the general manager in response to the person's review. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!! The rooms still could not accommodate 4 people. I am so glad there was only 2 of us. Neither one of us could keep our toiletry bag or items in the bathroom. The tiny shelf holds nothing but... More

The Bolger Conference center provides excellent service for guests staying, dining, and working in the center. There is great attention to detail from the daily fruit-infused water to the always available, helpful staff.

Beautiful property. Everything about it compares to any 5-star Marriott, Hilton,etc. The only exception is the number of restaurant choices (They have just one except for the dining hall). The food was amazing. One drawback is location. It is a lovely area, but it is about 30 minutes outside Downtown D.C., so don't expect to run into town too often.

The check-in process was easy and quick. The size of the grounds was a little intimidating with all the different buildings, but we found our room with relative ease. The buildings and grounds are well maintained. We got the deluxe double room which had a separate sitting area with a couch, tv, and a desk. There was also a tv... More

We stayed at the Bolger Center for a corporate event in early March. My husband had seminars and corporate activities to attend. I'd come along because I used to live in DC and had made plans to meet up with my friends over the same weekend. He reported that the facility was excellent for his corporate event. Getting to the...
