Attended a conference for a week. Felt like I was on a college campus with everything I needed right there. Rooms were good, nothing fancy, clean, dining hall had good food, great desserts, grounds were pretty. Good running trail and main road on the site. Pleasant staff and helpful.

I attended a conference on site. I think the building is owned by the fed govt post office. The lodging rooms were small, but clean. Housekeeping didn't speak English so I had to call front desk to resolve an issue. The carpet in room was old and torn. The mattress was comfortable and the room appeared clean. There was an...

This is a wonderful place hidden in the suburbs and no one really knows it's there. It has a lot of great features... a wonderful property and a great bar and a lovely room with the fireplace... it's just a terrific place

I'm captive here for a work conference. We are encouraged to network and mix with peers. The Pony is a natural place .. BUT .. the prices are exorbitant. They advertise $3 happy hour domestic beer, but they don't have any. They have $5 50 and $6.50 bottled beer. I had 3 beers for $19 50. I should have brought... More

When we drove in, we had to double check that we were in the right place, because the facility looks like a small college campus. Turns out, it's a US Post Office training facility, and they rent out the extra rooms as hotel rooms. There are multiple buildings, and we were placed in the Osgood Building, which was a bit...

I can't tell you how disappointed I am in this place. I came for a conference so had no choice over the location. The campus is nice, but the downsides are far too many. The rooms are smaller than half a dorm room in college. No where to put a suitcase (*simply not enough space). No room to sit or... More

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

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.
