Located right on Wisconsin Avenue, this Doubletree is in walking distance to Bethesda restaurants and 5 minutes from I-495. So you can head south on Wisconsin and get down to DC proper or head west on 495 to the Tysons Corners/Dulles area. With traffic the way it can clog up in this part of the country, I found this accessibility... More

I stayed here for three nights on the weekend. It was selected as it was the least expensive near my daughters studio apartment. The room is very small but functional for one person.

Clean and large room, clean bathroom, and the cookie at check-in was a great added bonus. Location was very close (maybe a 5 min walk) to the red line of the DC metro. Beautiful lobby decorated for the holidays with holiday music playing. Very inviting atmosphere.

The hotel doesn't live up to the hype on its website. "Savor the stunning blend of contemporary style and Zen allure in the heart of trendy, downtown Bethesda." The hotel is three-quarters of a mile from the heart of downtown. In fact, it's in a rather drab area. I don't mind walking, but if you have limitations, keep the location... More

Dear guest, we take you comments very seriously.

The hotel’s location is ideal for visiting the NIH. The staff is friendly and efficient – easy check in and out. The room was basic and clean. Wi Fi was free (Hilton Honors silver). The gym is open 5 am - 11 pm.

Hi Faye, it appears that your stay went well. Based on feedback we usually get, we would like to think that our rooms are great. Our Fitness Center is open 24 hours each day; guests have to use their room key to access the space. Thanks again; our friendly staff hopes to serve you again soon. More

Excellent buffet breakfast with many choices of eggs, yogurt, fruit, bacon, sausage. Park and Play option a good value for providing the free breakfast and valet parking. Rooms clean and comfortable, room temperature easily adjustable and quiet. Good location for visiting the Washington, DC area.

I travel often and like to stay at the Hilton properties. What a big mistake this trip was. First, I must say the property itself is a nice property but its service was horrible.

Our experience at this property was negative. Given the other lodging possibilities in Bethesda, people should avoid this place and go elsewhere. First, one of the parking valets stole cash from my car. We gave them every opportunity to make it right and they did not do so. Then we alerted the reception desk of the theft and the woman... More

This review is unfair. The accusation of theft is unfounded. Our management team is learning about this for the very first time on Trip Advisor… We did a thorough investigation on 12/2/13 and our Valet Drivers all of which have been with us for 2 to 10 years were not even aware of this accusation.

This hotel had a very helpful front desk staff- friendly and able to solve any problem. The rooms were nice and quiet. The water saving shower head was not good and the restaurant breakfast was tasty but the waitress on the second and third day was terrible- just didn't know what was going on! And brought the wrong food!
