“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stay at this hotel frequently when visiting family. The location is great, easy to walk to restaurants and the Metro. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean. The rates are very affordable compared to downtown DC prices and there is free wireless.

I recently stayed at your facility while completing a workshop at NIH. I chose your hotel because it was within walking distance to the NIH campus, but will return because of your staff. Each day of our 5 day stay, the staff displayed a professional, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Thank you to your facility & staff for attention to detail in such a kind and courteous manner!

Had a wonderful experience at the Bethesda DoubleTree while attending a conference. The NIH gateway was an easy 15 minute walk and there were multiple nice restaurants near the hotel. The room was comfortable and quiet. The housekeeper drew a little smiling sun on the notepad where I'd left a tip. My only complaint would be the nuts in the cookies. I hate nuts. Definitely nice for the cost.

AJ and Ricky at the front desk were incredibly friendly and helpful! All the staff definitely did their part to make my stay comfortable. The wifi definitely needs some improvement, but it's free. The gym is on the small side, but definitely adequate. The rooftop pool is awesome. There is no complimentary breakfast, and the breakfast that they do have it quite expensive. That being said, there are TONS of restaurants around that offer alternatives.

Check-in team was great. However, at check-in I was given impression breakfast would be free for both of my rooms. I double checked the next morning before telling my family where to meet me, via telephone, and was again informed it would be free. In retrospect, Perhaps front desk staff was confused since I was placed on Honors floor.

So, pardon my surprise when I was presented with a tab for four people. The server redirected me to the Front desk and I was advised the meal was not free.

Mind you, the restaurant service was the WORSE experience ever. If I had known in advance the cost would be $17, I probably would have gone elsewhere. Toaster was not working on buffet; server took15 minutes to bring cold dry toast; cold waffles; plates were left stacked on the table; and could not get refills without repeatedly asking. The only saving breakfast feature was the omelet station.

Lastly, I could not get a 1:00 check out on a Sunday. Overall, disappointing.

On a recent trip to the DC Area we wanted a good hotel convenient to friends in Bethesda/Potomac and to appointments in Chevy Chase. We found the Doubletree Bethesda to be in the ideal location. In addition to being convenient to our planned visits we were within walking distance to many fine restaurants and a 24 hour drugstore. We were welcomed upon our arrival with the traditional chocolate chip cookie and given a wonderful hypoallergenic room. This hotel also has a nice rooftop pool which my wife enjoyed. And their breakfasts were excellent. We will certainly return next time we come to the DC area.

Spent three nights. Great location. One block from "Circulator", a free bus that goes through town. Stops at a D.C. Metro station.

Pluses- great staff, quiet hotel. Rooftop pool really nice. Great lobby. Rooms well maintained. Great room rate.

Minus- limited cable channels, no refrigerator in room, coffee maker needs to be upgraded. Looks like from the 90's. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash in large pump bottles on rear wall of shower. Have no problems with large bottles, but placement should be on front wall of shower, so you are not turning around repeatedly in a possibly slippery tub. Room safe not usable unless you crawl into closet. Instead of facing into room when closet opened, it faces the side wall opposing the safe, with the keypad next to the back wall.
Card was slipped under door of day two of our stay stating manager hoped we were enjoying our complimentary upgrade, but we hadn't gotten one. Room we were in was room we booked.
As you can see the flaws are with the physical aspect of the room, not the staff, decor or cleanliness.
Would I stay here again? Yes. But it could be great.

Green Features: They do have hypo-allergenic rooms. They have hypo- allergenic pillows and room air purifiers.
