We stayed here for the third time and really enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is in Bethesda, very close to the metro/subway thta takes you right into D.C..On weekends it is great value and much cheaper than staying in D.C.
The hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious and it satisfied our needs. The staff are always helpful and polite and they have a couple of nice touches, such as coffee all day in the lobby and each evening, they rolled in a popcon machine and gave out popcorn, our kids loved this.
We had the breakfast buffet each morning. On our last visits, the breakfast was good and had a good selection. This time around, the food was so/so and I found the hot food (bacon/sausages) to be greasy and not so good. I did complain and the manager took my concerns to heart and was genuinely concerned. As a result of this, she did waive our parking fee, which was a nice touch and made up for the problem in some way.
As with all the hotels on this road trip, the pool was really cold. Why???? No-one wants to swim in a cold pool and the life-guard on duty said there was nothing he could do about it. It curtailed our swimming, which was a shame as this is a big thing for our kids. (Stop being stingy and heat the pool properly!!)
Overall, I like this hotel and will stay here again next time we are in town.
