As a professional Meeting Planner, I support a number of events locally and across the country. The Doubletree Bethesda Hotel and Executive Meeting Center is a wonderful venue for corporate meetings and events. The staff is very personable, professional, solution-oriented, and friendly. I will sum up my experiences to the analogy of a marriage of convenience (oh-my-goodness-my-biological-clock-is-ticking-I'll take you-yeah the one holding the fried bologna-sandwhich!) versus a long-term marriage commitment with a truly compatible spouse. Operative word being compatible.
A marriage of convenience with a spouse that is practical, relatively attractive and “good for you” may offer security and mundane contentment. This type of union could work well for many years depending on how conservative your needs are. However, for the romantic, you experience and come to anticipate joy and longevity with a truly compatible spouse who exceeds your expectations and whose approach to life and problem solving may be just as effective, but different, delightfully innovative, and completely out-of-the box from anything you have ever experienced. For me, the Doubletree Hotel and Executive Meeting Center is that "compatible spouse" who literally offers the comfort of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies each day upon request.
Most hotels offer a consistent, traditional standard hotel experience that meets the customer’s basic lodging and meeting needs. However, the Doubletree Bethesda Hotel and Executive Meeting Center appeals to modern, savvy Meeting Planners with its state of the art audiovisual support and equipment, trendsetting execution of banquet services and functions, and comfortable meeting space.
Only a few negatives, I wish they had a sister-property in downtown DC; limited parking during hectic times; and the erratic, charbroil food smells from the neighboring restaurant in two meeting rooms at this facility. However, the hotel responded very quickly with no excuses in offering a solution to adequately address this last concern. I still maintain my opinion that the Doubletree Hotel and Executive Meeting Center is a venue that is conducive to a fun, budget sensitive and productive meeting experience. Besides we all could use some good clean fun, as we try to formulate answers to the harsh realities and uncertainties of these economically challenging times at meetings.
