Let me start off by saying this area surrounding the Bolger Center is beautiful. No wonder the Marriott family and a lot of other billionaires call Potomac their home. This hotel is nestled away in Potomac, which is in probably one of the richest area in the country. That being said, there is not much for the average guy to... More

If you're looking for a former convent that's now run by the Post Office, this is your place. The rooms are impossibly small with little soundproofing in between (I imagine because nuns did not make much noise). The other main issue with the rooms is that they had no heat. Inexplicably, they turn on the heat (ceremoniously, I imagine), just... More

Staff is fantastic. Catering was very good - though small portions. Wonderful spatial use with outdoor paths. Nicely appointed and quiet grounds. Good sound and seating in the Ben Franklin Hall - though dais lighting could be improved. Clean and comfortable.

I've been staying here for ten years on business trips. The place is always clean and smells good. Donna, who is in management here, has always gone above and beyond in making my stay comfortable and pleasant. She works hard. I have seen many staff changes over the years and am happy to see that Donna remains at the helm.

A magnificent park, with a majestic building... Behind, quite a few utilitarian buildings, without any grace. The rooms in all buildings are comfortable and quiet, but the bathrooms are rather cramped (except accessible room). I return there for the park.

I stayed at the Conference Center from Tuesday through Friday of this week (August 4-7, 2015). The Center itself has lovely grounds, so-so cafeteria food, decent meeting rooms, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have a mass of bedbug bites on my neck, arm and legs. I am distraught in that I do not know now what I need to do with... More

We stayed at the Bolger Center to attend my cousin's wedding weekend. The staff was friendly and professional. The king suite was very nice with a balcony overlooking a wooded area at the back of the hotel. It was quiet and very serene. The suite was clean although the bathroom toilet could use replacing with a chair height toilet. The... More

I have attended several meetings and training sessions at Bolger. The facilities are good. The food is expensive but plentiful and very good. The rooms are indeed small but clean. I will attend more meetings there and recommend it for yours.

We stayed at The Bolger Center for one night in early July. The room was small, clean and comfortable and the property was beautiful. The front desk staff was helpful and attentive. We dined at The Pony Express which was a casual eatery. The food was good and the service was great.
