VERY average hotel, which is NOT what I've come to expect from the brand. Location is good for the Metro, shopping, restaurants in Bethesda, and accessible to the National Zoo area and northwest DC (5-6 miles). Parking is $20/day with in-out access (higher on weekends) or $12 for 24 hours, and is below the hotel, and not managed by the hotel.
Check in was easy and quick, staff was friendly and responsive. I actually enjoy the atrium experience but as others have said, updates are greatly needed. Décor, carpeting, everything was circa 1990. Rooms were much the same. Had a queen room, TINY, with outdated furniture - had to prop the TV cabinet door open with the recycling bin in order to watch TV. Bed was comfortable and AC/Heat functioned properly. Shower pressure was lacking, towels were hardly better than average.
All in all the property was fine, I would stay again if booked through a discount site again, but wouldn't pay their walk-in rates. Exercise facility was decent, and NOTE: there are Cybex machines (again, from the 90s) opposite the pool, so don't think the whole facility is just the 3 elipticals and recumbent bike when you first walk in. Bad thing though is that room with the machines is closed weekdays 10am-5pm, as is the pool.... ?
Just not what I've come to appreciate about Hyatt. Oh, and Daily Grill Restaurant is way over priced!
