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!
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!)
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!
