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

Decent Little Place, Excellent Location

I'm a DC local. My power went out for a couple of days and needed a place warm to stay. The Phoenix is a nice little hotel and the price was great. This is an excellent location for tourists -- you're walking distance to the Capitol and the Mall. Union station is a block away. I'd avoid the attached restaurant, though (The Dubliner). Nice bar, but the food is mediocre at best (and I wasn't expecting anything fancy) and the wait staff, while nice, is young and a little scattered.

Classic luxury close to everything

The staff was very friendly. The location made getting to the downtown Washington sights very easy without being in the middle of all the hub-bub. The room was small and might feel really small for a large person.

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.

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.

Great location

There was a problem with the reservation the first night, but the next morning the front desk staff were great help in fixing it. Call ahead if you are reserving a room for more than one person but you're flying separately. This location is one block from Union Station with great shops and Metro access. It is also about four blocks from the Capitol and the beginning of the Mall with the many museums, etc. The Dubliner pub is connected to the first floor of the Phoenix Park and we ate there three times. One of the evenings we were there for the live music - very nice. There is no swimming pool, but the rooms are very nice, decorated with an old-world decor but with a current HD tv. Loved my stay in Washington DC and at the Phoenix Park!

Great location, bed was wonderful.

Small hotel, small elevators. Traditionally decorated. Bed and linens were comfy. Restaurant next door was convenient. View of the capital from the entrance. Walking distance to some museums., and transportations.
