Relaxing hotel with a touch of Irish hospitality

The Phoenix Park Hotel has a somewhat eclectic history, starting life in the hotel business as a place designed for workers and travelers coming from the nearby Union Station. Originally featuring shared bathrooms, Irish-American entrepreneur Daniel Coleman updated and modernized the Phoenix Park Hotel. The name comes from the iconic Phoenix Park in Dublin, and the hotel strives to do homage to this important piece of Irish history with its gorgeously crafted architecture and decor, including original oil paintings and marble staircase. All guests have access to the notable Irish pub and Dubliner Restaurant, one of Capitol Hill's most respected places to eat and drink. Valet parking is available for a fee.

  • Great location just a few blocks from the Smithsonian museums and Capitol Building

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.

Pretty Good Hotel

We picked the hotel because it was as close to Union Station as possible and that was very helpful during our trip as the tour buses leave from there. Staff was nice and room was clean. Value was average at $135/night. Our family travelled with our 5 year old son and unfortunately we were placed next to a wedding party suite. We toughed it out in the room and the 2nd night was better. The room was a bit small but very comfortable. There was very little space for toiletries in the bathroom, the sink had a noticeable crack in it and the paint was chipping a bit but overall it was nicely decorated and enough room for a family of 3.

If you drive down, bring a case of Costco water because DC in July and August is humidity at its worst and you don't want to have to buy $2-$4 water bottles.

Great location and staff

Stayed a Saturday night and decided to stay over another night and staff was very accommodating. Parked at Union Station and made the easy walk to the hotel. Nice room that faced away from the main streets so it was fairly quiet. My wife really liked the decor. It's an older hotel but has been very well maintained. I highly recommend.

A quick DC get away

It was a very comfortable hotel , perfect for a quick getaway. It is also in a perfect location, near everything. However there were details that needed work. The shower was poorly built which made water spray everywhere. They also try to charge you for the smallest things. For the amount of time we stayed, it was perfect.

Nice Place to stay and not too expensive

It's a ways from the Parks, but if you are not wishing to be in all that traffic and noise this is a reasonable place to stay in Orlando.

Can't beat it for proximity to Union Station

I needed a place to stay near Union station. I came in from Phila after work on friday and was competing at a swim meet near the Tenleytown station. Was a 2 minuyte walk to the hotel. Back to union atation in the morning to catch my metro to the meet. Room was clean, staff was attentive and friendly. Bed was very comfortable and nicely decorated, although small. This is not unusual in DC. I was not there long enough to check out any amenities but was required to rate them here- all i did was sleep
