My wife and I stayed at this hotel three nights. We were there to attend a wedding at the hotel and choose to extend our stay to enjoy the area. There is really nothing bad to stay about this hotel. The staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating - everyone was constantly offering assistance and a friendly hello. Of special note is the bell hop Joseph who was just a sheer delight to speak with each day. The rooms are modern, well maintained and clean. The gym is above average. The restaurant on the premises is expensive but we enjoyed an excellent meal there one evening - fresh, tasty food and top notch service throughout. Easy access to major roads and one block to the metro. Here's some helpful hints - 1) If you like to run there is the Bethesda Path just two blocks from the hotel. Very pretty, peaceful walking/running area with a decent amount of shade. 2) Whole Foods is just two blocks away. 3) For an excellent breakfast consider the Silver Diner. It is about 1 mile east on Rockville Pike and well worth the effort to get there. Food is fresh, innovative and they source much of the food from local farms. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it to our fellow travellers.
