Trip Advisor Wonderful Times
Oct 29, 2014 by: MzLizz from Newark, New Jersey
This was my fourth time staying there and each time is better an the last. The grounds are well groomed, staff is genuinely friendly and out going. The gym and pool are great, and the walking trails on the property fantastic! The owner did a great job transforming this former convent to a Conference Center. P.S. I just found out on my last stay that there is transportation to the Montgomery Mall!

Trip Advisor Pleasant Stay

The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Suite was spacious and very clean with comfortable bedding. The staff were very friendly and accommodating especially Steven at the Front Desk and Amana from the Osgood Restaurant, she went above and beyond and made the trip memorable. Only stayed the one night, would have liked to stayed longer and taken advantage of the entire facility. Next time! Thank you for an awesome stay!

Trip Advisor Great place for a retreat near DC

I recently stayed here for a two-day meeting - this was my second time staying at the facilty. Overall, it was a great stay. Real positives include the quiet, secluded grounds (walking around at night I surprised a family of 4 dear and a fox), the extremely friendly staff (the genuinely seemed happy to have us stay here!). My room, in Osgood Hall was fine. Clean and serviceable, if maybe a little small. Ate all my meals at the restaurant, also in Osgood - the quality of the meals was very high. Wi-fi was free and worked well. If I can find a small drawback it is that one doesn't have complete control over room temperature. There is a note explaining that the two-pipe system only allows one mode of temperature control (heating or cooling) in the building at a time. This wasn't an issue at all one night - I found the room a bit warm the second night, so that I opened the window.

Trip Advisor Friendly Faces!

We were at the Bolger Center for our daughter's wedding. Every person we met - from the hotel clerk to a server in the dining hall to the staff person overseeing our daughter's magical evening was unfailingly polite and considerate! In fact, so much so, that a number of guests and vendors mentioned how nice the Bolger Center staff were and sadly, how unusual that is in this day and age. Hats off to the Bolger Center staff!

Trip Advisor A Viable Option in Potomac

I stayed here for a corporate event and was pleased with the facility. I had a nice room (in C-wing) with two double beds and a separate "living space." There was a flat screen in each room. The bathroom was extremely small; think master bath in houses built in the '60's! However, it was nicely renovated and perfectly serviceable. The wifi was complimentary and hassle-free. Finally, my room extremely quiet. I didn't hear a sound once the door closed. The hotel is located toward the back of a large campus. The grounds are expansive and beautiful. I had both breakfast and dinner at the Osgood Restaurant, and thought both were excellent. I also used the gym facility in Franklin Hall. There is a large indoor pool where you can do laps, along with weights and some cardio equipment. While it's not new (or particularly stylish), it's much better than you will find in most hotels. It's also pretty quiet down there; I had the locker-room to completely to myself. If you're coming to visit DC, I recommend that you get a car. The Bolger Center is pretty far out there. Nice place, though!
