Trip Advisor Cozy hotel
Apr 14, 2014 by: kimhuss from Batavia, Illinois
We wanted to stay close to Bethesda,MD where my son lives. This location is great, not in the city with no noise. I wish we had time to enjoy the restaurant, we heard they were very good. Next time we visit our son we will sure to book here. The rooms were cozy, like a bed and breakfast. Loved the wood burning fireplace in the lobby. Would recommend this to friends and family! 4 star!!!!

Trip Advisor Nice grounds, but....

Over all, this hotel is very outdated, overpriced and not very accommodating. The rooms were crowded, poorly laid out. Bed was hard as a rock. Just very stressful staying there. Menus were not very well planned. Meals were very expensive. Not restful at all.

Trip Advisor I wish I had read the 10/23/11 review about the "Deluxe Double Room" before I booked...

After reading the review as well as the comments from the general manager in response to the person's review. NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!! The rooms still could not accommodate 4 people. I am so glad there was only 2 of us. Neither one of us could keep our toiletry bag or items in the bathroom. The tiny shelf holds nothing but a couple glasses and a few complimentary toiletry items. No place to put anything else. No racks for bath towels or to hold clothes for dressing which turns out to not be a problem because you couldn't dress in there anyway. Dimensions are 4'10" x 4'2" open space. To sit on the toilet you had to close the door because the door rests right on the toilet. The sitting area has no coffee table in front of the sofa. I didn't even have a luggage holder in the room. I had to call housekeeping to get one. The building is truly a dorm room and not what you would expect from a Dolce Hotel. Don't look at the Dolce's promo on Channel 2 because you will really see how subpar this place is in comparison to their other locations. When we checked in the front desk the personnel was not that friendly. The friendliest people I found was the maintenance man, housekeepers and the bartender in the Pony Express. This room would probably work for a single person or a couple college students who wouldn't spend much time in the room.

Trip Advisor Excellent Service

The Bolger Conference center provides excellent service for guests staying, dining, and working in the center. There is great attention to detail from the daily fruit-infused water to the always available, helpful staff.

Beautiful property. Everything about it compares to any 5-star Marriott, Hilton,etc. The only exception is the number of restaurant choices (They have just one except for the dining hall). The food was amazing. One drawback is location. It is a lovely area, but it is about 30 minutes outside Downtown D.C., so don't expect to run into town too often.
