“Decent hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

My major pain point with my stay was that I requested early check-in as I flew in from a red eye flight. I called to notify the hotel around 10a and they said there would be no room available until around 1p. I arrived at the hotel at that time and still not room available. I didn't get into my room until around 2:30p. The front desk staff also made me feel like they were doing me a favor, when I had requested early check-in all along. We also didn't get any cookie upon checking in.

Room was just fine. Beds were a little soft. Really liked the towels. The work-out room was quite good too. Loved the fact that internet was complimentary! Parking also costs $22 per night.

Dear lkfreema, thanks for sending your feedback. I would like to point out that 3pm is our check in time but our staff is known for being generous and flexible with early check in requests. Our guests usually understands when we are coming off a sold out night and cannot offer an early check in. I am glad you enjoyed our great bed and towels; these are usually popular with our guests. I hope you come see us again the next time you come to the DC area.

Great staff, safe area, few blocks from the subway, about 30 min ride to Capital Hill. You're also close to the best areas of Bethesda for shopping and food! They do charge for parking but we negotiated that for free due to an extended stay.

Hello cnhoel, it appears that you had a great experience with us. This is awesome; and thanks for this great feedback. Being a few blocks from great shops and restaurants gives our guests the best of both worlds since the hotel also has such great amenities. Our Executive Chef is the new talk of the town; our Share concept restaurant has been creating a new buzz in the community for its quality, affordability and tasty small plate offerings. Check this out the next time you visit.

This hotel was excellent. Great staff and comfortable room. I tried to tip the guy working in the business center for going above and beyond the call of duty and he refused to except the tip saying it was his pleasure to help me. The front counter staff was the same way.

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.

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.
