I just returned from a HS reunion (won't tell you which year, but let's just say we're all leaning toward the "mature" end of the spectrum.) The attendees stayed at the Bolger Center for the Friday and Saturday events, and it was a thoroughly pleasurable experience. Many of us are from the DC area, and never knew about this place... More

My wife and I decided to spend the weekend visiting the Washington D.C. metro area and after reviewing several lodging options we booked a suite at the Bolger Center, Potomac Maryland. We arrived in the evening and were warmly greeted by the hotel receptionist. Our suite was located in the Osgood Building on the third floor. Upon entering our suite... More

Who would think to stay at a convention center for the weekend...when you aren't attending a convention?? The property grounds are lovely..right off 270 in Potomac. GREAT LOCATION! Rooms small but immaculate and sheets are crisp. Large pool clean and I was the only swimmer. It resembles a small college Campus..with a dining hall and small pub. They 'righted' two... More

The rooms are clean, nice grounds and amenities. Excellent deal for a suite (group/event rate), but there was a problem with communication and dining the weekend I was there. Perhaps the hotel is not as focused on special event/non-conference-related guests. There was some confusion over which dining facilities were open when. Ultimately, the Asst. Manager apologized for the confusion and... More

I recently visited the Bolger Center, and have been there many times in the past also. Every time I go there, the service is excellent. The staff could not be friendlier, from the Pony Express Lounge, to the front desk, to the girl who stands at the entrance of the dining facility. They go out of your way to make... More

We stayed in two rooms during a family function. Echoing what the previous reviews have said, the staff is nice, the grounds are lovely, and the rates are good. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet on our last morning there and it was quite good. The rooms are clean but very, very basic. The furniture is older but in good repair.... More

Just stayed here for three nights while attending a family affair. This property has so much potential but something is critically wrong. The staff could not be nicer. The food is good. The room I stayed in was good. But the experience was ruined by gross disorganization and consistent misinformation coming from the front desk. I shared my concerns with... More

The Bolger is a hidden gem in the DMV. The Postal Training Academy is there. Although it is a basic hotel, I would recommend it because the rate was so great and the setting is fantastic. It was very calm and everyone @ the hotel was friendly and pleasant. My room was clean, with the exception of the hair on... More
