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. The meeting facilities were well configured with a very nice large ballroom for group activities and breakout rooms located nearby. I also appreciated the free and easy wifi... More

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. There is nothing near the hotel, not so much as a... More

I teach an exclusive drawing workshop and have used The Bolger Center for many years for my workshop. Their conference rooms are wonderful plus the service area for food and coffee was outstanding. Situated on eighty three acres of lawns and gardens creates a beautiful backdrop to the conference building. Usually I stay with friends but the last few I've... More

The Bolger Center is a campus style, resort, perfect for trainings and meetings. All of the amenities on-site make the experience very comfortable and pleasant. The facade of the buildings appear a bit institutional or dorm-like, but the experience in-side is comfortable and accommodating. The campus landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. Conference center space is functional, could use some... More

I stayed for 2 nights in January to attend a conference. It's a great venue for a conference, free WiFi throughout, good food and amazing snacks in the breakout area. The rooms are comfortable and functional, and at a conference you're unlikely to be spending much time in them. The property is some distance from the Metro, so if you're... More
