good location, great staff

Like this hotel. But know it is small but quaint. My only two items are the charge to use the business center and there is no vanity area in the bathroom. Close the lid if you don't want things flushing away. Overall, good location and great staff.

A great weekend

Perfect hotel and for me it look like a 4 star hotel. Awesome location almost next to Union Station. The Capitol was close and the rest of the museums was about 2 miles so you could walk. The room was super clean and comfortable. Staff super friendly and helpful.

Good value in a good location

The proximity of the Phoenix Park Hotel to Union Station really is a major plus. The room was not the largest but was plenty comfortable. The staff was friendly and overall I had a good experience at the Phoenix Park.

The Dubliner really is a can't miss destination if you are staying at the Phoenix Park. Even if you just stop in for a quick drink, it is totally worth the experience.

Convenient and clean. A good no frills hotel

We took AmTrack from NY, so this was really convenient. My 12 yr. old and I were visiting DC for the first time. There are metro bikes right across the street, that was great. Having Union station right there was a plus. The hotel is a classic old building. Clean. There is a workout room in the lower level but didn't check it out. The rooms were decent size. We were booked for a lower floor, I requested as high up as possible, they were very accommodating and we were moved to the 8th floor. Rooms we're clean, beds a bit on the soft side. I think this was more a case of deep pillow tops, not soft springs. Housekeeping was top notch. I had left out a container of fruit. Came back to find note stating that they put it in the fridge for us (and where the fridge was located. Didn't know it had one). Highly recommended.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If the weather is in your favor, use metrobike. 1 or 3 day pass. First half hour of any ride segment is free (there is an initial sign up cost). There are stations all over the DC area. Cost effective vs cabs. Great exercise and good for sight seeing.

Location Great, Internet Painfully Slow

The location for a one-day stopover for someone touring by rail simply can't be beaten. Staff was knowledgable and friendly and there are plenty of things to see nearby. Tour buses load almost at the front door, and if you have time, you can even stop by your Senator's office.

This hotel is within spitting distance of Union Station - exactly what I was looking for. The room was small, but lovely. We had some trouble with the wifi, but other than that, it was perfect for our needs.

Perfect location for quick sight-seeing trip

I am a woman who took an overnight solo trip from NYC to DC. Selected the Phoenix Park partly because of its proximity to Union Station. I recognized the hotel (from photo) in the distance when I stepped out to the curb and it was an easy walk. This is a small, but nicely-appointed hotel with excellent service and location. Room had nice European/Irish touches like a high bed with nice duvet and knit throw. Didn't dine at restaurant/pub or order room service but I might have if they had offered at least one vegetarian option. Just a suggestion. Many people seem to still think that vegetarians eat fish. Sorry, nope. Restaurant seemed to do a brisk business though. Would definitely stay again.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

In the daytime there are many take out places and even a long line of food trucks catering to workers in the area. Union Station also has a pretty great food court. Night time is a different story. Except for the hotel's restaurant/pub and another adjacent Irish pub the restaurants within a few blocks were few and mostly high-end.
