“A nice stay in a good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I recently stayed at this hotel for a quick weekend getaway that was near DC. The hotel is located a block from the Bethesda Metro station, making for a quick trip into Washington, and is located near many restaurants of all types. The area feels safe as well. The hotel itself is well maintained, & the room, with a king bed, was a decent size. The rooms include a coffeemaker, microwave, & small refrigerator. The check-in was fast, & the employees were courteous, letting us know how to get in & out of the parking garage, as well as the breakfast hours. It should be noted that, if you don't get a package/special rate, that parking is $15/day, and, if you choose to eat breakfast in the restaurant, it is $14.95 before taxes/tip. Everything met my expectations; the only reason I couldn't give a 5 was the way the room was done - housekeeping failed to supply us with enough linens, and the coffee wasn't refilled. I also felt a bit rushed at breakfast the first morning, even though the restaurant wasn't full, and wasn't closing for a while. I have to agree with a previous poster that the cable selection left a bit to be desired. Overall, it was a good experience, & I would stay here again.

This is my third stay here, and as always the check-in and out process was efficient and quick. When I had an issue with my air-conditioning making a noise, the response by the engineers was very prompt, and they sorted it out. I have stayed in several other hotels in the area, and find the hilton to be best suited for my needs.

Room Tip: If you have a room only booking, I would suggest you also try breakfast (with reasonable prices) in...

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel where I stayed for an annual conference. This time I was planning on relaxing and watching TLC Sunday night....there are tons of sports channels on their TV lineup but no TLC! Missed out on Long Island Medium!

Computers in the business center are a bit outdated and one of them has a broken stand on the keyboard....also would appreciate some wipes in there to wipe down the keyboard. I couldn't print my boarding pass because they don't have Adobe PDF reader installed on them, so I had to go to the front desk to print it.....PDF reader is not exactly exotic software, also the IE browser doesn't support tabs.....quite a bit behind the times. Did appreciate that it was free to use the computers since I didn't have my laptop or other email device with me.

Overall a very good value and perfectly nice hotel.

The location was excellent and the rooms were good size for a hotel in this price range. The location is close to almost everything in downtown Bethesda, including the Metro and a huge variety of restaurants (the high-end specialty and department stores are about a mile closer to DC in Chevy Chase). The lobby was small but pleasant. The weekend we were there, a large arts and crafts show was being held a few blocks away, one of the best I've seen of these outdoor art shows. We were unfortunately on the same floor as the (tiny) pool and fitness room, which led to a fairly strong chlorine smell at certain times of day, but the noise was not an issue. The beds and pillows (non-foam) were comfortable, reading and working lights were excellent, and both the bath (decent size) and room were very clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful, but the hotel's breakfast buffet is basically an all-you-can eat single price ($15) affair, which, if you like a coffee/cereal type of breakfast, was simply not reasonable price-wise. Perhaps the hotel has a continental breakfast option on weekdays; they should make it available on weekends as well. There is a Starbucks a block away, about a two minute walk. Moreover, right next to the Starbucks is a municipal garage that is free on weekends, so you can skip the $15/night hotel parking (not unreasonable by DC standards) if you wish. One warning; while the hotel is close to everything in northwest DC, including American U., the National Cathedral, embassies, etc., the traffic on the main artery, Wisconsin Ave. can be very slow, so plan for and find alternate routes.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the pool and fitness room, choose a room on the second floor, otherwise I...

The hotel is in the heart of Bethesda, an upscale area with plenty of good restaurants, stores and cafes. It's less than two blocks to the Bethesda Metro stop. The rooms are large with business hotel furnishings. Staff were pleasant. The only downsides were a charge for parking and the use of a hotel "scent" that was pervasive and unpleasant to me.

I stayed here to visit relatives in Bethesda and was impressed. The hotel is very nice, quiet, with nicely furnished rooms and comfortable beds with nice linens - but the best part was the location. Just 2 blocks to the Metro for super easy access to all of the Washington DC tourist attractions, and a very quick walk to the heart of Bethesda, a trendy and charming neighborhood area with many nice restaurants, bistros, and shops -- plus 2 Starbucks within a 5 minute walk for the mornings.
My elderly parents enjoyed the deluxe breakfast buffet each morning and I chose to enjoy one of the many fun cafes within easy walking distance. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: There isn't really a "view" side of the hotel so no rooms/floors seemed preferable to...

I am a born Washingtonian who moved to Florida. I had a business trip and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Bethesda. This location is great. The staff made all feel welcome. It is close to Metro and roads connecting to DC, MD and VA. I will be back again.
