I spent three nights at the Residence Inn Bethesda and was very happy with all aspects of my stay. Great staff, 1 block to the metro, good restaurants and shopping close by, great room and sleep. One stop south of NIH and Walter Reed, one stop north of Friendship Heights. The weather was very cold during my stay and the... More

Stayed at the Residence Inn when visiting family in Washington DC. It was nice and the room was relatively clean. It was great having a small kitchen to keep drinks in and store miscellaneous food. Many family members also stayed at the same hotel.

We were in town for my mother's 80th birthday celebration. I chose the Residence Inn because we had stayed here previously and our stay was uneventful - no complaints. The hotel is a bit dated - our room this time was missing the extra lock on the door, scrapes on some of the furniture, towel rack bar that fell off... More

Really enjoyed my two week stay at this hotel. The complimentary dinner Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday night was great, and the hotel providing a grocery service at no additional cost was a great benefit since I didn't have a vehicle on this trip. The nearness of the Metro was one of the main reasons for my selection of this hotel,... More

I stayed three nights at Residence Inn Bethesda Downtown attending a workshop at the hotel. The workshop planners did really good. The location is AMAZING - it is super convenient… just two blocks from the metro. There are four five rows of excellent restaurants (from low to high end) just a block and a half away and there is a... More

I stayed at this property about 20 years ago and the rooms seem to have only had furniture upgraded during that time. I normally stay at a regular Marriott, but decided to give this a try because of it's location. My room needed a good cleaning--crumbs were around and the bathroom fixtures had lots of grime as well as the... More

the hotel is very near the metro, restaurants and heart of Bethesda. Rooms were very large and roomy with great view. Daily breakfast and dinner and cocktails in the evenings added extra value. Very friendly staff. Safe location. I loved walking in the area and felt very comfortable.

Just came back from another spectacular stay at the Residence Inn Bethesda. It is now always my go to hotel in Bethesda.

This location is very safe. They are redoing the sidewalks, so walking is a bit difficult for a short while. This is a city issue not the hotels. The hotel is very welcoming and a very nice place to stay. The pool is very nice. Like all DC hotels it is not inexpensive.

Thank you for the 5 star rating! Good news the sidewalks are completed and downtown Bethesda is back to normal for visiting all the local shops and restaurants that are all within walking distance. Thank you for your comments regarding the hotel. We hope to see you back here soon. Regards, Shelly Saunders More

I wish I could have stayed longer at this property. The staff were super friendly and helpful, with useful dining and activity recommendations, the check-in and check-out was a breeze. The location is great, two blocks from the Metro Station and in the middle of an area overflowing with great restaurants. There is even a spa, less than a block... More
