The only thing I'll say about this hotel is that they should have warned us that construction was underway. Use your imagination for what happened next. No one should be forced to wake up to noise coming from the lobby.

Good Day Rashad L: Thank you for staying with us while in Bethesda. Notification of construction associated with the renovation of the lobby and fitness center November 23rd-December 4th, 2015 was posted to our website and our call center in early June of this year. Every few years, we make necessary upgrades to the property to enhance the guest experience....

For the past few years i have stayed at this hotel with my family while in town for Thanksgiving. Every year without fail there are issues. Overcharges/missing reservations/room issues.

NewJerseymaddog: Thank you for your review and patronage of our hotel. Your experience was shared with the team as an example of how NOT to treat our guests.

Reviewed November 27, 2015

Lots of interior lobby remodeling makes this a pretty aggravating hotel to stay in for the short term. Maybe when the work is done, it'll be acceptable; but not now. Because of these goings-on, facilities are limited. Anyway, if you insist on booking sight unseen, make sure you pay budget motel rates. They will offer lower rates if you inquire.

This hotel is not your normal Doubletree hotel. Ammenties and services falls short in every way. When we arrived there was no offer of a warm cookie.

At this Doubletree, I attended a two-day meeting and stayed in a sleeping room. Facilities and room were both good. Many of the meetings going on seemed to be associated with the nearby NIH.

Room was very comfortable. However, the elevators are very slow (kept getting stuck) and there's no service elevator for staff.
