I stayed at the Hyatt Bethesda from May 28th- May 30th. I was there for a work conference. I stayed in a room with 2 double beds. The rooms were slightly outdated and very basic, but they were clean. It was suitable for a work visit.
The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed dinner at the Daily Grill the first night. Very delicious!
Easy access to the Metro.
The morning of my first conference, I was not thrilled with the breakfast served. I went up to the gift shop to see if they had any yogurt in the refrigerated section. They did not. I asked the clerk behind the desk where I could get fruit and yogurt. He sent me to the Daily Grill restaurant. I ended up paying $14 for yogurt, fruit, and granola. The very next day, I found out they have a little breakfast area in the lobby where you can buy fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, etc. I was a bit disappointed that the clerk did not give me this information.
Hotel gym - very small. The pictures were misleading. Very clean.
Here is my biggest complaint - The wi-fi service at this hotel was not free. I had to pay every 24 hrs. for wi-fi, unless I sat in the lobby. I was not going to do work in the lobby. Not only do you have to pay for wi-fi, but there is no cell service in the meeting rooms. This is extremely inconvenient and not practical at all. This hotel seems like a hotel mostly used for conferences and meetings, so I strongly advise they rethink their wireless access.
Overall - clean, food pretty good, friendly staff, terrible wireless access and phone service.
