The location is the best part of the Bolger Center. Meticulous grounds and the surrounding areas make you feel like you are far away from the hustle and bustle of DC. The center is very clean and the beds are comfy. There are a few food options on site that are average. There is a nice pool and 2 level... More

Above average business training facility. Clean, attractive grounds, comfy rooms and beds. Good food with lots of variety. What you need to know: Situated in the middle of a neighborhood, it seems remote but is about 2 miles from a shopping center/mall. If you are driving, you're all set. If you aren't - a cab ride from DCA will cost... More

I am here at the Bolger Center for business and I must say I am having a grand ole time. From the spacious room in the Osgood Building to the delicious food, the scenery/landscaping to the little bunny rabbits that grace you presences as you stroll the grounds, to the large indoor pool and the fitness center, I don't know...

It wasn't planned I was going to finish my day in Dulles so the company I work for booked me at this hotel last minute. On my way from the airport, I read the reviews posted and the majority of them were talking about rooms that are like a dorm or super small. Upon arrival I requested a large room... More

The place is is perfect if you need to be isolated since Bolger center is located in a remote area surrounded by nice gardens and peaceful atmosphere. Rooms are very very small and no luxury or services are available. Facilities comprises meeting rooms, a fitting room and a covered pool as well as a jogging trail. Food is quite acceptable.

The rooms and buildings are very military/government plain. Single rooms are very small as are the bathrooms. There isn't anything close by to walk to which means you are struck eating onsite unless you pay for or have transport. The Pony bar open for dinner is bad bar food, but the folks are nice and there is decent alcohol. The... More

My second stay at the Bolger Center, a hotel used by the USPS for their training and nicely situated in a wooded, quiet area. Much better than staying closer to DC, especially if you do not mind the traffic. Great $12 breakfast buffet, all you can eat and freshly prepared.

I come here on a regular basis for training and each time i am pleased with the service that is provided by the staff. I have never met any staff member that did not have a smile on their face. I love the food

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
