I was thrilled to arrive at this hotel right across the street from Union Station, for a very reasonable prce, and find it so clean, comfortable, and up to current hotel standards.
I walked easily from here to the Smithsonian museums.
like Irish pubs, there are two of them right downstairs.
I treated myself to a hotel before I took the Amtrak to FL. My room was adequate and cozy. The view is less than desirable. But thats OK. Theres a nice pub downstairs and the staff were courteous yet couldve been a little bit more professional.
This hotel was great for a no-frills weekend trip to D.C. The room, though small was very clean with a spacious bathroom and was equipped with everything you need for a simple weekend away. The location is fantastic with Union Station across from
the hotel, and Capitol Hill just down the street. In terms of what could be improved -- valet parking is extremely expensive (just pay and park at Union station, or across the street on Sunday).
My tween daughter and I enjoyed our recent one-night stay at the Phoenix Park Hotel. Staff was pleasant and accommodating and our room was clean and very comfortable. I found an excellent rate online that was well within our modest budget.
hotel is an easy one-block walk from Union Station, where a plethora of casual eateries, shops, and tours can be found. Our 2 1/2 hour Amtrak train ride from NJ, though not exactly cheap, was quite comfortable and certainly preferable to traveling by car.
The Postal Museum is just across the street from the hotel is well done and worth the visit. The Capitol, National Mall, Smithsonian museums, etc., are technically within walking distance, but I definitely recommend taking a hop-on/hop-off bus tour from Union Station, such as Old Town Trolley or Big Bus, to avoid aching legs and feet.
Food at the the attached Dubliner Restaurant, where we dined outdoors, was quite decent and kid-friendly, though not exceptional. Breakfast at the Corner Bakery Cafe, steps away from the hotel, was excellent and definitely recommended.
