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

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!

My review of Phoenix Park Hotel

Experienced problems with the bathroom sink water system. Found cold, hot, and no water coming out of same tap at various times. Maintenance informed twice but was unable to resolve completely. Bed was comfortable, decor was pleasing, but wall paper starting to separate on wall near left side of bed. Air conditioner outlet blew directed at head area of bed. Was uncomfortable enough to turn off during night.

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

A charming hotel

The Phoenix Park dates from 1922. It isn't really a luxury hotel, but it has atmosphere and charm. It reminded us of hotels in Europe. The rooms are small, but they have character. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was helpful. The pub served all the traditional Irish dishes. The location is terrific. We were in Washington for two days to view exhibitions at the National Museum of American History and the National Gallery of Art. It was a short and inexpensive cab ride (it was snowing!) from the hotel to the museums. All in all, a most enjoyable experience.

Good location & value; friendly staff

Good visit-- clean room and friendly welcome. Room was too warm and thermostat was old and not responsive. Otherwise room was fine and The Dubliner (off the lobby) is a great Irish bar. Would recommend this hotel for good value, location and friendly staff.
