  • We had our wedding at the Bolger Center during November of 2019 and were very with our experience and how everything turned out: Sales Manager: Sarah, our sales manager at the Bolger Center, was very knowledgeable, experienced, patient and accommodating. During our initial venue visit she was able to answer all of our questions in great detail, and came across as very experienced in event management. She demonstrated that same level of professionalism throughout the entire process. Sarah was also extremely patient with us. During the months leading up to our wedding, she was very accommodating in showing us, our families, and our vendors the space, even if that meant coming in on weekends or in the evenings. Further, on the weekend of our wedding she was patient with us when our rehearsal ran late, and on the wedding day she ensured things were going to plan. She was even present during our post-wedding breakfast, checking in with us to see if we were doing well. It was an absolute... Read more

  • We have just completed our third mitzvah at the Bolger center. All three times they were extraordinarily easy to work with, and our mitzvahs came out exactly as we had designed and discussed. My children were so very happy, as were my guests. The food is really really good, and we have received rave reviews from our guests every single time. We have also been able to customize our menus in several ways all three times, and were pleased that Bolger was so accommodating for very little extra cost. I also find the serving staff to be not only good at what they do, but very very warm. I have had servers who have worked more than one of my events, and one who has worked all three - and they know us and remember us :-). That, combined with my coordinator/manager all three times, has almost made us feel like we were family there. The other reason we pick the Bolger was because it made it very easy on my guests that we could lodge them there, and also do our Friday night meal at the... Read more

They made our event smooth and easy! Ricky was extremely professional, knowledgeable and positive. Planning this event was delightful.

  • We had an incredible wedding at the Bolger Center! The grounds were picturesque and perfect for photos. The food was delicious; all of our guests enjoyed it! The best part of our experience was working with venue coordinator Sarah Curiale. She not only helped us to plan an amazing event, but made sure everything ran smoothly on the day of. She answered all of our questions, and fast! Sarah took care of so many things, making planning easier and giving us less to worry about! She worked with us every step of the way to make sure our special day was everything we had in mind. For example, when we couldn't decide which lighting we liked for the Stained Glass Hall, she went in after hours to take a picture of how the it would look after dark. Sarah definitely went above and beyond to make everything come together for the perfect day! Highly recommend.

  • The Stained Glass Hall is a hidden gem in Potomac. We held an event there for 120 guests and the Bolger Center staff made sure it was perfect. Sarah Curiale, the Bolger Center coordinator, was prompt in her responses to our needs, very organized to ensure no details were missed and on site the night of the event to make sure everything went as planned. They offer flexibility in providing a garden setting for our cocktail hour, with an inside room as plan B in case of weather. They offer a delicious tasting of the food well in advance of your event so you know what will be served, and they offer a large variety of food to pick from. The grounds are beautiful and provide many spots for taking photos and the room itself has been upgraded with a beautiful marble atrium, and customizable uplighting to match the theme of your event. They provide detailed timelines and banquet orders to make sure your room is set up the way you want and your party runs smoothly. Their wait staff is atte... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception in the Franklin Hall back in October and it was just perfect! I remember walking into the room during cocktail hour when it was just finished being set up- it better than I could have imagined! Honestly, it was hard to imagine making that huge room into the cozy, warm vibe I wanted since every time we saw it, it was set up for a conference. But it was completely transformed for the wedding reception- amazing lighting, tons of space, simple logistics with lodging available for out of towners, and the staff was awesome! They were so professional, happy, and helpful during the planning process and day of. Sarah is a pleasure to work with- responsive, honest, and helpful! Having your wedding here is a great decision!

  • The Bolger Center truly made my dream wedding come true! The planning process was a breeze due to their staff's professionalism and quick responses. Rhonda, who was our main point of contact was amazing from start to finish. Emails and phone calls were always answered within a timely manner. The day of staff were extremely accommodating and my guests were so impressed. I would not have changed a thing! We also had our rehearsal dinner here which was excellent.

  • AMAZING! We chose to have our son's Bar Mitzvah at the Bolger Center mainly to accommodate our out of town guests. I had no idea this property existed until we started exploring. First, planning with Rhonda and her staff was made easy and they met all of our needs. They helped with everything from choosing the rooms, to lighting, room setup, and the wonderful menu we put together for both kids and adults. Our Bar Mitzvah service was held in the Overland Room which was so beautifully set up with a stage for my son and beautiful lighting coming through the stain glass. It was perfectly intimate! Everything (mic, tables, coat rack, etc.) was where it needed to be that morning. For our party in the Stain Glass Hall, we had a kids buffet, adult cocktail and seated lunch service. The food was DELICIOUS!!!! The salmon, chicken, beef and vegan dishes received rave reviews. They were plated beautifully! The hors d'oeuvres were also delectable! We had seared tuna, lamb chops, stuffed mushrooms... Read more

  • We had an outstanding experience with the Bolger Center and highly recommend this venue for overall value and quality to anyone planning a wedding, Bar Mitzvah or other milestone occasion. Bhavna and Kara from the Sales and Catering team were extremely communicative, responsive and flexible during the planning process (not to mention kind and professional). They helped us create a modified menu and drinks package that fit within our budget, worked with the chefs to accommodate several dietary restrictions among our guests, and gave us a great amount of flexibility when it came to loading in and out before and after the event. We held a cocktail reception in the Overland Room and our main event later that night in Benjamin Franklin Hall. The level of service we experienced during our event weekend matched what one might expect at any fine hotel: each and every service person we came across was courteous, responsive and capable. We had text and cell phone access to key Bolger Center pers... Read more

  • From the very beginning we saw multiple venues and once we visited the Bolger Center and met with Sarah Curiale, we immediately knew this would be our wedding venue. She worked with us every step of the way from the very beginning and kept us at ease throughout the typically stressful wedding planning process. We had our wedding in the Stained Glass Hall last month and the room was perfect from the lighting to the acoustics and the beautiful stained glass and ceiling tile. All of our guests commented on how nice everything looked. The food service was great as well! Our reception and ceremony both took place in the Stained Glass Hall and everything was flipped in a quick and tidy manner. This venue is certainly a hidden gem and Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was in constant communication with us, including the morning of our wedding and was always accommodating to any changes we had as well. We were able to meet and set up our lighting. Having the Pony Express on ... Read more

  • Close to downtown Washington but with expansive grounds that make you feel like you are worlds away. We used this venue for a 90th birthday weekend, including a sit-down dinner for just under 100 and a Sunday brunch for overnight guests. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Everyone, starting with our coordinator Sarah, was easy to work with and very professional. All service staff - hotel check-in, maintenance, dining room - were polite, professional and responsive. Despite the venue hosting three events that weekend, we felt like we were the only group there. They obviously know what they are doing. Highly recommended.

  • The Bolger Center is a wonderful choice if you're looking for a venue that can accommodate your getting ready rooms, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after-party and hotel rooms. It is much more reasonably priced than many of the other locations in the area and the service is excellent. We worked with Rhonda, who was incredibly friendly and always willing to negotiate and work with us to ensure a perfect wedding. She was responsive, organized, and went out of her way to make sure we were receiving the service we wanted. The venue itself is beautiful which allows for a lovely backdrop for an outdoor ceremony if the weather is good. The grounds are extensive and you can take photos in the woods, which adds some great variety. However, if it rains there is also a gorgeous stained glass room that can accommodate weddings inside. The dressing rooms are large (especially for the bride) and the service is great. They provide the mirrors, chairs, coffee, etc so you're able to ha... Read more
