“Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Only negative was breakfast not included and add $22/day for valet parking. Room was comfortable and service was friendly. I would return to this hotel. (The pool is only in the hot weather as it is outside. Didn't use the gym but it looked very nice.)

The beds were so comfortable and we had a fantastic weekend, the location is perfect, quiet at night to sleep and there are so many Restaurants within walking distance and shopping and great clothing consignment shops.
The staff were all friendly and I cannot wait to go back next year.

The Double Tree was clean and convenient to subway and restaurants. The area was nice! It was a 8-12 minute walk to the subway. There were quite a few are restaurants to choose from. There was Mexican, Japanese, Italian, and Chinese restaurants around the hotel. The staff was wonderful. Breakfast was good. I would stay here again.

Dear Taz65, Thanks for your kind feedback. Our guest usually enjoy the best of both worlds when staying with us; the easy access to a variety of restaurant coupled with our own Share concept restaurant is a positive feedback we usually hear about.

I have stayed here twice now for business and have been very satisfied both times. The staff is amazing and very nice. The rooms are a good sized and clean. The beds are very comfortable. The only knock is that the air conditioner didn't get the room as cold as I would have liked. The location is about a half mile from the metro, but an easy walk. There is not a executive floor, so they offer a pantry that is stocked with goodies for those with status. The manager's reception is also very nice and the chef is very talented and a good entertainer. As long as I am in the Bethesda area, I will stay here.

Dear Cody, I shared your feedback with the staff and it made their day. It is so rewarding to know that our guests appreciate the extra things we do at the Bethesda Doubletree to set ourselves apart from the other hotels in the area. Regarding the AC, we have invested quite a bit recently to upgrade all of our older HVAC units… The next time you visit don’t miss out on our new highly popular Sunday Brunch featuring our delicious Mimosas and Bloody Mary; I know you will have a memorable experience.

This hotel has valet only parking for $22 a day. The WiFi is spotty. Those are the only negative comments I can make. The service was great, especially for the night desk staff. The beds are really comfortable. The views are nice. Great location away from the noise of the city, but close enough to drive into DC. Free shuttle to the Metro stop.

Dear SEFowler, thank you for sending your feedback. Our recently upgraded Wifi service is usually a positive experience in our hotel. Thank you for pointing out our great service levels, great view of Bethesda from our guest rooms and convenient shuttle service to the Metro; these are a few of our many features that we are very proud of. If you happen to return for a visit in the summer remember to take advantage of our roof top pool, where the fun and view of Bethesda is spectacular.

I'm Diamond in Hilton's frequent guest program. I've stayed at many different Hilton properties across the nation. I've stayed at the DoubleTree Bethesda a great many times over the last two years as they are just blocks from my company HQ. But there are numerous hotels nearby including another Hilton property.

I stay here because the staff is truly top-notch. The folks at the front desk greet me like family when I arrive late at night after a long day of travel. It's a small thing but it makes a difference. I stay here because the beds and pillows are wonderful! Can't say the same for all hotels. I stay here because the food is good and the place is always clean.

Simply a great hotel for business travel to Bethesda.

This is a standard Doubletree hotel but the service is a step up from most. The desk clerks were extremely helpful and pleasant and made my stay special. The rooms are clean and the linens are of good quality. There is a decent fitness center on the roof with three treadmills, some elliptical machines and stationary bikes. There is a second area sort of hidden around the corner that has some weights. The cardio machines are of good quality and have their own tvs. The fitness center opens at 5:00am which was nice as by shortly after 6:00am there were waits for some of the machines. (There are also some private gyms in the area including Equinox.)

The downside of the hotel is its location. It is about halfway between the NIH metro station and Bethesda so it is a bit of a walk if you have luggage (the hotel has a shuttle that runs intermittently). When I needed a cab at check out, it was a 15 minute wait. Do call ahead. That said, if you don’t mind walking a little bit, you do all the restaurants of Bethesda available. (If location is a priority, try the Hyatt above the Bethesda station or the Embassy Suites above the Friendship Heights. Of the three, the Embassy Suites is the best.) The food at the hotel is just ok, but again, the staff are very nice. And remember, Doubletree hotels give out warm chocolate chip cookies at check-in. It was a nice treat when I arrive at midnight following a weather delayed flight.

Room Tip: Some rooms have refrigerators which can be helpful if you want to keep snacks in your room.

Hello Runkate, thank you for the compliment about our staff; we believe that our warm and caring staff set us apart from the other hotels in Bethesda. You pointed out some of our great features that you noticed during your experience with us; we sincerely appreciate that. Regarding location, we usually receive high marks in this area from our guests. The hotel is situated in a great part of Bethesda, blocks away from the Bethesda shopping district, hundreds of trendy restaurants and bars are within blocks of the hotel. We are also literally walking distance from NIH and Walter Reed facilities which many visitors appreciate. Also, not only do we provide shuttle service to NIH and Walter Reed, we also provide shuttle service every 30 minutes to and from the metro which is only 6 walk-able blocks away?
