Upon our arrival, the room we were assigned was so bad, we went back to the reception to ask to change. The room was very tiny, and had no window, except for a small corner window. The hotel is outdated and overpriced. Breakfast was expensive, but had a good selection of goods. Overall, it is not a hotel I would... More

Basic rooms are very small, more like dorm rooms than a hotel. If you can find a good orice on one of the online booking services, I recommend opting for a suite. Staff is very helpful.Food is adequate. This is a learning center more than a hotel in a very nice neighborhood.

I was bitten quite badly by bed bugs. I noticed after 2 nights and cancelled the 3rd night. The hotel staff was helpful and ran my suitcase in their high temperature drier, they closed off my room and the neighboring ones. Still had to pay for the 2 nights I stayed there. I'm sure they will take care of the... More

The Bolger Center strictly observes hospitality industry standards regarding pest control. While our professional contractor could not say conclusively what had been in the room, we do acknowledge you experienced some discomfort during your stay, and for that we sincerely apologize.

I was "Googling" for a hotel in the Potomac area and happily came upon this location. I found the reservation process easy, and the room was clean, more than adequate and comfortable. Moreover, the price was reasonable and the eating facilities were excellent and reasoanbly price. I will come here next time I visit Potomac.

I stayed at The Bolger Center in Potomac, MD this March (of 2013) and I was quite pleased. I did not know what to expect as it seemed like a converted hotel (which I later found out it was) and I thought it was only for people visiting with a conference or convention. They accommodated just two of us for... More

Sleeping rooms were small but were clean and had updated amenities. The meeting rooms were great, especially the main conference room. The food was really good with lots of healthy and vegetarian selections. The staff was outstanding--100% helpful and delightful.The grounds were lovely.

I suspect that most who stay at the Bolger Center do so for a conference. For that purpose, the accommodations, conference rooms and dining room are well-suited and well-priced. The most unique aspect is the dining room, which serves food in a buffet/cafeteria style. The food choices are pretty wide, but not gourmet food. This makes meals pretty fast, so... More

Recently stayed 1 night at the Bolger Center for a business trip. We had a meeting at that location. I had a single room in Building A. Much smaller than a usual hotel room. It was okay since I wasn't there much, but it could have had more electrical outlets in more convenient spots. It was basic, nothing fancy, but... More

I just brought a large group of people to the Bolger Center for a conference and couldn't have been more pleased with the choice. The sleeping rooms were clean, updated and comfortable.

My husband and I stayed at the Bolger Center during the 2013 inauguration. The price was great, and although we were concerned about the convenience of getting into DC -- they have a shuttle that runs on the hour that takes you right to the Metro station in Bethesda.
