“Very friendly and helpful place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

We recently stayed at the Doubletree Hotel Bethesda and found it to be a very convenient, enjoyable place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is good and they offer a free shuttle service to some area locations, including the metro stop (only about .6 mile away, but helpful when traveling with older relatives). The exercise room is good for a quick workout, but some of the machines could use a check-up. Overall, it was a good place to stay, but it was the friendly staff which really made the experience shine.

Pros:
1. Very friendly staff at check-in
2. Very, very comfortable beds. I am one of those who has difficulty falling asleep on hotel beds but had no problem here.
3. Great location near the main attractions of Bethesda
4. Free internet

Cons:
1. The layout of the hotel is a little confusing with no clear markings on how to use the non Wisconsin street exit...not a big deal but currently involves walking on a driveway or using the back entrance and a non-descript staircase.
2. The wine bar closes at 11pm..way too early for a Saturday night.

Overall, excellent place to stay for business with a great location and comfortable bed.

Let me start by saying how glorious the hotel is. The room had a giant, comfortable bed with a mountain of pillows, the bathroom had yummy smelling soaps and was immaculate, the t.v. was a very big flat screen. Despite not being posh on the outside and being located directly on Wisconsin Ave. the inside of the hotel was peaceful, quiet, clean.
The meeting facilities were exceptional and the food served was delicious and the common spaces were conducive to creating interaction.
The neighborhood is a bit mixed but you are a short, short walk to good restaurants outside of the hotel. However, the Bethesda Metro station requires good walking shoes and an umbrella. it is easily a ten minute walk from the hotel. However, if you are working at NIH, you are conveniently located to NIH--again, about a six-ten minute walk to the campus.

Room Tip: I had a king room. The bed was fabulous.

We had our wedding here at the Doubletree Hotel in April of 2011 and it was the best experience. We had almost all of our guests come in from out of town and they stayed here too. The staff is amazing, all of the rooms are huge and the dining is excellent! Thank you Doubletree for everything :)

The Doubletree is a fine hotel and one of the best deals around. But, what really makes it great is the staff at the front desk. Anita & Tamara were tops. Additionally, all maintenance and housekeeping staff are always pleasant. Free parking in county garage behind the hotel on the weekends.

Room Tip: Ask for two sinks.

I spent two nights at the Doubletree Hotel in Bethesda last October for work.
I was surprised by the nice service and rooms. Price is reasonable and location is good. some 4 blocks from the Bethesda Metro, and on Wisconsin Ave.
They also provide free internet access and speedy check out.
I do recommend it.
