“Great hotel, Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We checked in on August 14th for a 3 night stay. Just the two of us (left the kids at home)! Wanted to explore DC with the luxury of time on our side and no requests from little ones!

Great points:

Easy to get to (we are from NYC area)
5 Blocks to the metro
If you walk out the back of the hotel - tons of great restaurants - the front area looks a little dull
Easy check in
parking - there is a lot across the street and garages near by that are A LOT less expensive then parking at the hotel - but we don't mind walking across the street (there is a cool app you can download to leave your car at a meter and pay on it as you are out and about!)

Downside:
Hotel AC/ Heating unit is LOUD!

We didn't use the pool or gym; but checked it out and looked great - pool didn't look like it would be awesome for kids (no steps - just ladders and water from 3-6 feet) - ours are 6 and 9 so they'd be fine; but any younger I'd have wanted a pool with steps to play on for them.

Also - if you walk a few blocks past the Bethesda Metro - towards the Friendship Heights metro (or take it one stop) - high end shopping ...

Also - in DC - MUST check out Union Market - in NOMA in DC - free parking...we actually drove there yesterday, left our car, walked DC, came back and had some great late afternoon snacks! If you go there - YOU MUST check out Rappahannock Oyster Bar - I don't love oysters but loved their peel and eat shrimp, crab cakes and clams - Great happy hour there 6 days a week from 5-7pm!

Hello Sherry, we appreciate your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your overall experience with us. You pointed out a few of the upside in staying at our property; we appreciate that. Shuttle access to the Metro and walking distance to shops and restaurants are two great reasons for staying with us. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.

OUTSTANDING Bethesda Team! Spoke with Javier regarding special needs prior to reservation and he EXCEEDED every expectation we could have imagined! Staff was very facilitating! Warm welcome, quick check in by valet team was great as well. Awesome room service...(crab cake and filet mignon entrees were cooked to perfection)! Hotel located abt (7 mins) blocks from the Metro; 20 min drive to DC; Heading up Wisconsin, upscale stores (Saks 5th Avenue, Saks Jandel, Brooks Brothers, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co) are easily accessible. Hotel also has a variety of both fast food and sit in eateries such as Thai, Chinese, Italian, 24 hr CVS, Hotel located on Wisconsin avenue and extends into Chevy Chase, MD in 30 minutes! Rooftop pool is very nice and offers peace and relaxation. We are checking out today and I could not wait to share how AWESOME this experience has been for my family and I, having come out of recent challenging personal experiences. It was unforgettable and we plan to return with our extended family so they too can have the 'Doubletree Bethesda Team and 'Javier experience'. My husband NEVER usually pays much attention to hotel detail items, but he too was very impressed by the service and overall stay at Doubletree Bethesda. And the cookies are just as delicious as they were day one. I have seen Javier speak with guests by name and Ricky, who greeted us at the front desk upon arrival was also very nice. If heading to the Washington DC area...please consider this hotel. My family and I have no doubt you will be glad you did! Sincere THANKS to Javier and the Doubletree Bethesda Team....who provided my family and I a gift of GREAT MEMORABLE stay while touring the many free museums and monuments in Washington DC. In a word: "PRICELESS"!! We will definitely be back!

Green Features: I love HILTON properties...and this one is awesome! The Cross family xoxo...

Hello Mary C, I shared your feedback with the team; it put a smile on their faces and made their day. Our team is passionate about service and creating a wow experience for our guests; I am glad you experienced just that. I will make it a point to acknowledge Javier and Ricky in front of their pairs; these are the two gentlemen you mentioned who stood out. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

It is a great hotel! The room was huge. It was about two blocks from the metro and walking distance to the medical center. I was able to check in early, which was very helpful. Free wifi, nice gym, and pool! Only downside was this is nowhere to park and starbucks wasn't open early enough on saturday before I had to go to my conference. Will be coming back for future business trips.

Hello Lysandra, thank you for your feedback. It is great that you had a near perfect experience with us. The next time you visit us you should try our small plate appetizers at our share Lounge; it’s quite popular with our guests.

We stayed the evening for a wedding in town and were able to check in early. The staff was handing out cookies upon arrival since the check-in line was so long. The hotel staff called a cab for us to go to the wedding in Glen Echo Park which was useful. We would stay there again.

Our stay at the Hilton was very nice overall. The location is very convenient to area restaurants and shops within walking distance. The room was clean, and the service was prompt. There was easy access to laundry and ice, and the refreshments in the lobby were a nice benefit. We really enjoyed the exercise room and the rooftop pool area; however, with the weather being cooler, the pool water was too cold to stay in for more than a brief refresher. The parking situation was a bit frustrating in that you had to either pay for Valet parking or use the lot (with meter payment between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday through Friday). Payment by credit card was available but not so easy to set up. The only other concerns related to the fact that not all rooms come with a refrigerator and/or microwave. When you are staying for a week, these amenities are very valuable. Overall, we would stay at the DoubleTree again.

Hotel was good and friendly. Good location for work. AC was very good. But internet is REALLY BAD. constantly drops, very slow, and was constantly having to log back in. Also they do not tell you anywhere what the ID of the internet is... its "att" but how do you expect to know that in a Hilton/Double tree hotel...

I would highly recommend the Double Tree by Hilton in Bethesda, MD to anyone. If you want 5 star treatment, then this is the place to stay. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, we were treated like royalty. And the bed was indescribable. I have never been in a hotel before where the bed was so comfortable.
