This place is clean like most Hyatt hotels. It is large and the location in Bethesda is very nice (about one or two blocks away from the Bethesda Metro stop).
Nothing else is special about it. You have to pay an extra fee for the wireless Internet service (which is not always fast enough). The rooms are ordinary with decor from the 1980s. I noticed a small stain on one of the towels in my room and it appeared to be dried blood. The large hotel has a huge skylight in the middle of its roof but it is still dark even during the middle of the day.
When I checked in, the man at the front desk was VISIBLY UNCOMFORTABLE when I presented my credit card to him. He was NOT satisfied with examining my U.S. passport and DEMANDED TO SEE ANOTHER FORM OF IDENTIFICATION with my address on it. I gave him my driver's license. He then ASKED ME TO VERIFY THE EXACT TELEPHONE NUMBER that I had on file. It was ridiculous because I am a Gold Points member and as far as I know, there is nothing suspicious about me.
I checked out after one night and found a room at another large chain's hotel (recently renovated and with free Internet service) very close to Dupont Circle for $139 per night in contrast to the Hyatt's rate of $229 per night.
