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

  • Popular hotel for weddings, functions, and for visiting politicians and functionaries including Bill Clinton

  • Free Wi-Fi and Wired high speed internet in all public areas

Amazing location and amazing value

If you are arriving by train--whether a long-distance train or just coming into town from BWI--this is super convenient--right across from the train station. Then hop on the metro to go wherever in the city during your stay. And it has great tasteful furnishings with a Celtic theme, a very refreshing change from bland hotels that all look the same. Almost a B&B feel. The staff is helpful but won't fawn over you. One caution: the pub on the ground floor can be a lively, noisy place some evenings. If that's what you are looking for head down and enjoy. If it might make it hard for you to sleep, you might ask for a room well away from it or bring ear plugs.

phoenix hotel DC

Hotel was in a great location, just very expensive and very poorly designed rooms. Pulling out the desk chair you had 4 inches to sit. If your 5 8' or taller you can't use the desk. bad room design

Great Night's Sleep!

This is the ideal location when you are visiting the Capital, and arriving via train (like if you are saving on airfare and flying into Baltimore and taking the 40 min train ride to DC). It is two blocks from Union Station to the Phoenix Park Hotel, and a half mile walk beyond that will get you to the Capital Building.

Irish nest in DC

This is an irish hotel tucked away in dc, it was reasonably central to walk and if not to some things a very short cab ride. Staff were fantastic and very accomodating- had an excellent feel to the place & enjoyed our stay there. We were recommended this hotel by a travel agent from america and it definately didnt disappoint.

Small room, but good value

Other than a very small room, which was to be expected in this location, the hotel was a great value and location. Check-in was quick and the staff friendly. Bed was very comfortable. Location is great with Union Station one block away, so if you are flying into Baltimore or National airports just take the train into town. The east end of The Mall (The Capitol) is a short walk away. And if you don't want to walk the entire length of the Mall, catch a Metro train at Union station to get to other points of interest.

Presidential Valentine's Day

This was our second time staying at the Phoenix Park Hotel and overall we were very pleased with our stay. A taxi ride to Ford's Theatre was less than 10 minutes away even with the snow piles along some of the side streets. We had breakfast at the hotel's Dubliner Restaurant and Pub. The food was very tasty however the coffee was served cold. Due to print size, we had a bit of trouble reading the menu even with our reading glasses on. I strongly suggest reprinting the menu in a larger font so patrons can read it. I ordered waffles only. The waitress brought me bacon as well. When I said I only ordered waffles, she said, "The bacon comes with it." Who knew??? I didn't! It probably was that very small print underneath the waffle listing that I couldn't read.

A short drive to Ford's Theatre via taxi or a nice walk if the weather is suitable. Hotel staff is knowledgable regarding directions to attractions and the best way to get there.

Nice Hotel in a Great Location

This hotel is in a great spot. Right next to the train station and the capitol it makes it a very good home-base for a trip to DC. Rooms were small but very modern and clean. Hotel was a bit expensive, but it is DC! Only complaint was that they never replaced our soap/shampoo even after we used it all up!
