The Phoenix Park Hotel is 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.

Rooms "have the feel of a Trinity College reading chamber that Joyce could have penned a novel in," says Lonely Planet. 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 2016. The best rooms are on the top floor and have views over the National Postal Museum. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

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 an easy stroll, Don’t miss the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center next door -- it’s free and packed with information. The location makes it popular with visiting politicians and diplomats; President Clinton is a past guest.

The Dubliner pub doubles as the hotel’s restaurant, with meals such as fish and chips and Dingle Bay salmon accompanied by pints of Guinness and live music every night. Few Irish pubs can boast such famous clientele -- President Obama stopped in for a pint on St. Patrick’s Day in 2012. There is also a small gym (open 24 hours), and the Upper Senate and Lower Senate parks are just next door.

Explore all of what the Capital City has to offer with top attractions like award-winning wineries and historic Potomac river cruises to fine-dining experiences just steps from The White House.

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

Enjoyed Most: Location
Other Comments: They have modernized their hotel. Quite frankly I liked the old look of Irish linens. It was more quaint. Also our room was very small. I forgot to ask for the upgrade when checking in but it wasn't offered to us either.

Enjoyed Most: The closeness to the Capitol
Other Comments: Rooms were small. The room where we had continental breakfast was small, but adorable. The only issue was the wood molding on the top was eaten away by unknown. It should be repaired. The room was small, but sweet for a couple. The floor was uneven and I tripped a few times on the carpet in the bedroom. It was noisy up to about midnight from the constant ambulances/fire engines/police car sirens. It eventually stopped and we were able to sleep. One great thing was the restaurant that was connected. Awesome Irish employees as well as guest from Ireland.

Other Comments: Ask about room upgrade and was told one was available but when I requested it and revealed I booked through Travelzoo all of a sudden the room was booked. The front desk night staff was rude and did not seem truthful or care about the customer. Rooms are small.

Enjoyed Most: Everything was wonderful! The staff was especially friendly and courteous. Upon check in I was given all the extras as a travelZoo customer and was even told about free parking across the street when I asked about valet parking!
Other Comments: I would definitely recommend Phoenix Park Hotel and will stay there for future visits! It is a great location also!
