Stayed here recently for a meeting at the National Institutes of Health. It is closer to NIH than other Bethesda hotels if you want to walk, and the room was reasonably comfortable, although the bathroom was tiny. But the rest of the hotel and amenities leave much to be desired. The restaurant charges $18 for a skimpy "buffet" (I got a free coupon as a Gold member) - go up the street to the Pancake House for a better and cheaper meal. Internet access is sluggish - I had to plug into the broadband cable provided in the room, and it's still slow. The gym area is OK, but one of the elliptical machines was broken and dirty towels are piled up on the floor. I'm a frequent visitor to other Doubletree hotels where everything is clean and it was disappointing to see this inattentiveness. The 2nd-floor conference area looked nice, although I did not use it, except to print my boarding pass in the business center ("it's COMPLIMENTARY!" a staff member assured me. Well, I should hope so!) Next time I'm in Bethesda, I'll probably stay at the Hyatt or Hilton Garden Inn, even though they are slightly further from NIH.
