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.
