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.

Nice Place to stay and not too expensive

It's a ways from the Parks, but if you are not wishing to be in all that traffic and noise this is a reasonable place to stay in Orlando.

An Excellent Choice

Although I was there for just one night on business, I really liked this hotel. It's not a modern, glitzy facility. In fact, it's in the National Register of Historic Hotels. My room, a standard king, was small but certainly not claustrophobic. The bed and bedding were extremely comfortable and most every amenity one could expect was provided: terry cloth robe, large, fluffy towels, coffee maker, umbrella, hair dryer, etc. The bathroom was modern and spotless and there was plenty of hot water and water pressure. The A/C worked great which is really important in DC in the summer. The front desk, lobby and housekeeping staff were uniformly welcoming, cordial and helpful. The location is terrific, literally one block from Union Station. I really have nothing but praise to offer. I did not have a car, but I did notice that the valet parking was a bit pricey: $50 per night. Given the location, perhaps that shouldn't be a surprise. Overall, highly recommended and I would certainly stay there again.

Great location for business and pleasure in DC!

This was my 8th stay at the Pheonix Park...always consistent...staff exceptional, European style rooms are perfect for me and location can not be beat for business and pleasure. I love the Dubliner Irish pub in the hotel...it's a real Irish pub with great Irish music. I will be back on my next trip to DC!

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.

great location, aged decor

The hotel is right in the middle of the government area and next to union station. So if you have meetings or need to get transportation it is very well located. The room was clean but aged. So it had a little bit of an old musty smell. Room service was from an Irish pub on the first floor which limits the menu. I would stay again if the price was right.

The family can have any food they each want at Union Station across the road. There must be 30 or so food selections. At noon each day 15 food trucks line up at the hotel.

trip to the Capital

the hotel is very comfortable, the location is impeccable, could not be better, even though the hotel is an older building, it is updated very nicely to satisfy all the needs of a state of the art facility without taking away the old world charm, the dubliner restaurant is conveniently located downstairs, just a block away from union station, just around the corner from the US Capitol
