“Nothing special but close to NIH”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

After years of visiting NIH and staying at the Hyatt, the doubletree offered an interesting alternative. Closer to NIH but farther from metro. Rooms are unexceptional (I even upgraded to a "deluxe room"), but large flat screen TVs and nice gym. Quiet, good access to Bethesda restaurants by back door. I think I might stay here again instead of hyatt, but time will tell.

Hotel has a great location near NIH campus and downtown Bethesda. There are shuttles to the NIH. Hotel was under construction when I stayed so the aesthetics were difficult to stay. Otherwise, uneventful stay.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. It is clear that you have not visited the property since your stay 10 months ago. During that time we were in the process of wrapping up our remodel and now we are proud to offer a unique departure from the "standard". We hope that you will visit us when back in the area to really enjoy our new hotel features including the new lobby, new guest floors, new 42" flat panel TV's with oversized dressers and newly remodeled bathrooms just to name a few. Thank you again for your timeand feedback.

This recently renovated hotel has an updated lobby, resturant, bar, wine bar and if you are a Hilton member, you will gain access to the "pantry" which is a small room containing all types of goodies from breakfast foods to snacks to candy to ice cream to various non-alcoholic drinks.

The room I stayed in was very large and spacious, quiet and had a super comfortable bed.

The valet parking was affordable ($20 vs $36 at place close to D.C.) and quick when I requested my car. They also did not charge extra for in/out parking -- that saved me some money right away.

Also, if you want to travel via the Metro to D.C. you can get to the Metra stop via a shuttle and they'll pick you up when you return.

I would highly recommend staying at this hotel and plan to stay there if I ever need to travel back there again.

Stayed here for our anniversary last weekend. The room was well decorated and clean, but the staff was sub-par. It took in-room dining 10 minutes to return our call, and our one slice of cake ended up being $11 after taxes and gratuity... a caveat that was explained in miniscule print on the menu. My largest complaint was noise. I called about a very loud neighbor and the front desk staff never even apologized. They did follow up about 30 minutes later, but the noise continued. Again, no apology was ever given about this circumstance. On the plus side, the free cookies are great!

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Although you were able to enjoy some of what our hotel has to offer, we obviously did not meet your expectations. Guest comfort is our most important goal and our guests should not be distrurbed when here for rest and relaxation. The experience you had was not normal for us and unfortunately we were unable to relocate your room due to the proximity of your departure time that morning. I do hope that you will give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations, so please contact me directly upon consideration of travel back to the area, so I can personally insure your satisfaction. Thank you again for taking time to give us our comments.

Nothing beats fast check in and warm chocolate chip cookies upon arrival. Yummers!!
Hotel has it's own restaurant and the surrounding area has quite a variety. Thai, Spanish, Houstons, Benihana, pizza joints...
No complaints on cleanliness & style rating = Very nice!
The bed is pillowy soft like you're sleeping on clouds...ahh
If you come over the weekend parking is free by the public parking lot behind the hotel, otherwise...$20 Valet. Yikes!!
All in all....best bang for my buck in a long time.
DC is about 20-30 min away
BWI about 40 min away

Just checked in and all I can say is WOW. Really nice renovated property near lots of restaurants. Free wifi and the cookie was nice. Very quiet too. Ricky and Anita at the front desk were really knowledeable about the area and quite helpful. I will definitely make the Doubletree my first chopice when coming back.
