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

Phoenix Park Hotel

We loved our stay at this hotel. The staff was very nice and the rooms were very clean. We loved the Irish touch. The Dubliner Restaurant was amazing! We highly recommend the Eva's open Faced Salmon Sandwich and the Monte Cristo Sandwich.

Great Central Location

The Hotel is directly across from Union Station-within walking distance of the Capital and Supreme Court. The room was quite comfortable and immaculate. The Dubliner Restaurant is part of the hotel-is convenient and delicious in the food department. Staff was helpful.

Great Location and great rooms.

I found this hotel to be well situated and convenient for business at the Capital, Georgetown Law School, and the Union Station area. Since it is only a block away from Union Square transportation and other services are readily available. I found the rooms to be well appointed and very clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Dubliner Irish Pub located in the property has a good menu and seems to be very popular. I would be happy to stay there again and recommend the hotel.

Union Square has an abundance of shops and restaurants to fit any taste and budget. A Top steak house, Charlie Palmer's, is only a short walk away.

Simply the Best

I am a traveling Mom. Seems I always get to drive to drop off one of my daughters. I booked this hotel because of its location. I loved it. I did not want to pay $40 to park so I parked at Union Station. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in. I went down stairs to the restaurant and had a great meal of fish and chips. I want to go back just to enjoy Washington DC. The location can not be beat.

Long weekend getaway

Very comfortable beds and pillows. Towels and robes were extremely nice.. This is an old hotel and the room we had was a little on the small side but all in all a very nice hotel that is about 2 blocks from union station, a short walk(1/2 mile to a mile) to the capital. There is only one downside to the hotel is there were sirens at night so if you're a light sleeper this may pose a problem. All in all I thought this was a great hotel.
