We always enjoy coming to this 3 story hotel in a great location, only 2 blocks north of the Bethesda Metro stop. Using a Groupon coupon, the rate was less than $100 a night--parking was not included, so we paid $15 per day. We left the car in the lot because the Metro is so convenient, as is the free Bethesda Circulator, a bus that loops around Bethesda. There is a Circulator stop as you exit the hotel in the rear, across the street (make sure to get a map of the Circulator stops),
We got a room on the second floor near the front--we would have prefered a room overlooking the courtyard--there were none available, but that was not a problem. Room had a flat screen TV, excellent king size bed, safe, fridge, Kureck coffee maker and good free wifi. Courtyard is pleasant, as the small lobby, which has a computer and books to borrow. Continental breakfast is adequate, with hard boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. The breakfast room is small and a little too tight to sit unless it is almost empty so we either eat in the courtyard or carry it back to the rooom.
The hotel has an elevator and fitness room. The staff members are always pleasant and helpful and we were able to check in very early--a real plus. There are many dining options within a few blocks from the hotel--pizza, Middle Eastern, French country cafe, etc.
