“Great location for the Inauguration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I booked Park Phoenix Hotel last minute when my daughter convinced me to attend the Inauguration (she worked on the committee and had tickets). I found the front desk staff very pleasant, friendly and helpful. The room was perfectly fine for the one night. I had comfortable king bed and the bathroom was clean and had a good size vanity which is important to me because I usually travel with a lot of toiletries. The shower pressure was fine, not awesome, but adequate. Towels were larger than usual hotel towels. The TV was a flat screen but not all the channels were in HD. My only complaint was that the room was a bit too warm for me, but it wasn't awful. I tend to get cold, so for someone who gets hot easily, it may have been too much. And the heat wasn't even turned on.
The location is two minute walk from Union Station; which was handy since getting around DC during the Inaugural weekend could only be done on foot or by metro since so many roads were closed and so many people were there for all the celebrations. I don't know if I'd stay there again, as I prefer more contemporary hotels, but it was fine for a last minute booking.

Room Tip: If it matters to you, ask for a room with a full vanity not just a sink.

I enjoyed my stay at the Phoenix Park hotel. The location is great, right across from Union Station and the Metro. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Internet is free and the room I stayed in was small, but comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Had to go to DC on a quick one night stop for business. Booked room here using another service. The service had really messed up the reservation, but the hotel staff were extremely helpful and worked out the issue. I had a single King room. While the room is small, that was not an issue. Good sized bath and terrific shower. The Irish Pub was a great place to have dinner/evening dring. Breakfast was a little pricey. Close to Union Station so Metro access was a breeze

My husband and I stay at this hotel in January and loved it. It was next to Union Station which made take the metro much easier. Its about two blocks away from the US Capitol building and the National Mall. The room was cosy, clean and a very comfortable bed.

What makes this hotel recommendable is its location so close to Union Station and to everywhere one might wanna go, even walking. The staff was also quite friendly, the rooms nothing to write home about and the price too much for what they offer, at least in our opinion.

Loved the hotel. Staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and give us everything we needed. Super close to everything and metro stop across the street. Staff let us leave our suitcases at the front desk after check out so we could continue our sight seeing. so nice. Very clean too. Will go back!

Apart from the room feeling slightly small and cramped, there are no complaints about this hotel. Décor and cleanliness are well up to standard for this class of establishment and the Irish pub incorporated into it next door is recommended not only for its range of drinks and quality of food but its authentic Irish atmosphere. Its location is good for the Capitol and Union Station, though it is a quarter of an hour’s walk or so to the National Gallery of Art and the other attractions of the city centre.
