We stayed at the Bethesda Court for 2 nights prior to my husband being admitted for chemo up at NIH. We got a pretty good patient rate and figured for 2 nights we could deal.
First complaint....we booked a King room and they gave us a double room. Not a HUGE deal and I didn't even say anything because we were only going to be there for 2 nights.
The elevator goes at a freaking snail pace!!!! For going 3 flights it sure is super slow!!!!! It is quite annoying really.
We stayed on the 3rd floor and I'm not sure if it was just our floor or not but the entire hallway was just HOT. Just awful and disgusting to be hot like that when you are indoors at a hotel.
Now onto our room. Our room was nice, nothing really special about it. The A/C unit is tricky it is either freezing cold or its HOT in the room. There is no somewhat cool to set it to. I tried putting it around 7 in hopes that it would be cool and it was closer to warm and made the room super stuffy. The water in the shower is also tricky with temperature in order to make it not scalding hot you have to slightly turn the cold side, if you turn the cold too much the water will be FREEZING. It's such a pain!!!!
I did like how the NIH shuttle came regularly to the hotel, made it easy to just hop on that instead of taking the metro (even though I'm comfortable doing that if I need to).
