Sophistication meets comfort at the Phoenix Park Hotel, a historic hotel with an exceptional location by Union Station and a cozy, innlike atmosphere. From its Waterford crystal chandeliers to the popular pub, it’s unequivocally Irish. 

This is an older building, so the rooms and elevators are on the small side, but the lobby, public spaces and guest rooms were refreshed in spring of 2016. The best rooms are on the top floor and have views over the National Postal Museum. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

The Dubliner pub doubles as the hotel’s restaurant, with Irish/American cuisine like fish and chips accompanied by pints of Guinness and nightly entertainment. Few Irish pubs can boast such famous clientele -- former President Obama stopped in for a pint on St. Patrick’s Day in 2012. 

Set in the Capitol Hill district, the hotel is neighbors with many of the city’s most famous sights. The Library of Congress, the largest library in the world, and the Supreme Court are a short stroll away.

From the press:
  • "This spot has been home away from home for visiting Irish politicians … so when they lay on the Emerald Isle kitsch, it’s genuine" -- Lonely Planet
  • "The Phoenix Park's location, across from Union Station and 2 blocks from the Capitol, makes it a favorite of business folks in town to meet with government officials" -- Frommer's

Very clean. Great location. Loved having the Dubliner in the lobby. Steps from Union station and the capitol, plus the bikeshare kiosk. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during my first visit to DC!

Location was superior bcs we arrived by train at Union Station. Dubliner Restaurant in-house is friendly and good. Front desk staff always helpful. Quality of renovation -- lovely materials, very well done.

Room was small but very well sound-proofed, even though we were overlooking the street. King sized bed a bit soft for our taste, but quite OK. There are many, many transportation options in the Union Station area, we did not need a car.

The valet parking ($55) was reduced to $35 for us. Dubliners restaurant was authentic Shepherds Pie ever, and the Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked.

Traffic noisy from emergency vehicles was a problem but they gave you ear plugs. Funny how you get used to it. Near the Capitol and Union Station.
