This hotel is located in downtown Bethesda, Maryland. The location is wonderful because it is around the corner from the metro which takes you straight into the hustle and bustle of Washington DC and brings you right back to the quiet tree-lined streets of Bethesda.
Again, the location is key because you are walking distance to shops, a large Barnes and Noble, and lots of restaurants. The hotel is also nestled in a residential zone which leads to the NIH military hospital if you keep walking.
Now for the hotel itself. If you are familiar with most Residence Inns then you will know this is not a full service hotel. With that being said you do have the comforts of a larger room with a separate bedroom a small kitchen, and a small living / eating area. Whenever I take longer trips I prefer this to being crammed in a small room. They do have grocery delivery service or you can take a short walk to the grocery store as well. I mostly ate out. Next door to the Residence Inn is a full service Hilton which has a restaurant and bar if you needed to have those amenities. The rooms were clean and neat. The hotel staff was friendly and housekeeping did a great job. The daily receptions had mediocre food, at best, but they did have a nice selection of wine and cheese which may the evening go by nicely after a hard day of work.
There wasn't a whole lot to say as far as the lobby which was very small and the common areas which seemed adequate. I believe the best part of the hotel was the large room, reception and definitely the location. By the end of the day it's nice to stay in Bethesda to wind down. The metro ride into Washington DC was not more than 15 to 20 minutes and along the way they were shopping malls, one was even accessible through the metro.
I would stay again, just because of these small features. Now I've stayed at better Residence Inn, however for this area this would be my location of choice. Especially if I'm staying for more than a week.
