“I would stay there again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

It's in a great location. It's near a wide range of restuarants and shops, and the metro is only a block away to conveniently take you to D.C. so you can avoid the hassle of driving in downtown D.C. Lastly the parking garage is very afforable.

The property is very clean, comfortable and accessible to public taxis and train transportation. The staff is very professional and friendly. I would recommend staying here especially for the business traveler.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in late August 2013. We were without a car but the Metro (subway) was a VERY short walk. Management has done a tremendous job of hiring staff who know how to smile and are totally obliging to the client. The facility is clean. Room cards are necessary in order to activate the elevator to room floors. I enjoyed being able to open the room window the one inch maximum in order to get outside air into the room (there was no problem with the a/c but I enjoy the "fresh air"). The fridge in the room was very useful. The no charge Wi-Fi was utilized frequently. The coffee in the lobby during the day and the cookies and lemonade in the evening were a bonus.
There are shops and restaurants in the area as well as many many stores (including Neimans, Sacks, Lord and Taylor as well as the opposite end TJ Maxx and Loehmans and restaurants one Metro stop away at Friendship Heights.
The only negative I could say at the hotel is that there is not an abundance of brochures for tours etc for the Washington area which are normally at many hotels; this can be alleviated by a bit of homework before arriving (or asking the front desk who are very obliging).
I have no hesitation in recommending this facility to others or to return the next time I am in the DC area.

The location of the hotel is great. Lots of restaurants, etc in the area. There is also a great running trail near the hotel. The entrance takes a bit of work to find, but ask the front desk. The rooms are standard HGI, parking is $15 for the night in the garage. The workout center is above average for a HGI. The elevators require your room key, sort of a pain. The breakfast burrito in the restaurant was excellent.

Dinner food was too greasy, oily, too much cheese in several of the dishes. Customer service was awesome. Fitness room way too small. Good location, not too far from great restaurants, across the street from movie theater, only a mile or so from the National Institutes of Health. I would stay here again, just wouldn't eat the lunch/dinner food.

Hilton Garden Inn is an excellent choice in Bethesda. Great accommodations. We like having a Mini-fridge and microwave - good for families. Room was clean, bathroom, bed and linens were comfortable. Desk and a really good chair. Coffee and these wonderful oatmeal cookies and apples available in the lobby. Sometimes lemonade. Parking very convenient next to the hotel but 15 a night is high but park free on the weekends at any nearby garage. You can shop around at nearby garages for a night rate but we chose to self-park in the hotel garage since it was convenient for weeknights and easy in and out. Metro is just 2 blocks away for easy access to DC. Bethesda has hundreds of restaurants from chipotle and subway and pot belly to nandi peri peri chicken to Vapiano and La Madeleine along with higher price fancy places like Morton's so there are many choices just a short walk away. There is a safeway suopermarket behind La Madeleine's if you need anything. A large Barnes and Noble and lots of cute shops nearby. Georgetown Cupcakes, Gelato, Ice Cream shoppes too. The hotel restaurant breakfast is way too expensive and not worth it for $15 a person, there are better choices for food in the area. On weekdays, just go to Nabi deli or Jenn's Deli in the office building next door for bagels or a breakfast special. Nabi's also makes an awesome bulgogi sub. You can check out Tastee Diner for a real retro old fashioned diner too. The hotel pool was very small and only 3ft10in deep, and not big enough for laps. Small hot tub and small fitness room. But its nice to have an indoor pool with a lifeguard. People were all very nice. Business center with 3 pcs and printer. Wi-Fi Internet was very reliable. And real HD! We love this location! Easy to get to quick drive from the 495 belt. Roomy rooms. Only thing was the AC in the hallway was very cold. But we really enjoyed this place, it was great! If only the parking was cheaper/free and the breakfast! Otherwise great, you won't be disappointed.

Overall, our stay here was very good. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent, just a couple blocks from the metro. There are some good restaurants nearby.

The room was very clean, fresh, nicely decorated. The linens all had a fairly strong bleach smell, but I associate that with clean, so I’m not really complaining.

I have three criticisms. The first is that we both found the mattresses to be a little uncomfortable. The second pertains to the AC. Although there’s a control in the room, our control of the actual temperature was pretty limited. Because our room had so much sun (I’m not complaining about sunshine!), it got quite warm. The hallway was actually cooler than our room. I should note, too, that my partner is an AC mechanic, so it wasn’t an issue of not knowing how to control the AC. The third complaint relates to the AC – because it’s not one of those big, old-style boxes you see in a lot of hotels, the AC is really quiet, which means there’s no white noise at night. We were lucky that our floor was pretty quiet, but I could see noise being an issue at night if you had a busy floor. So, as weird as it sounds, the quiet in the hotel room really messed up my sleep! Next time I will remember earplugs.

Those being said, our experience was so good overall that we would definitely stay here again!

Range of $87 to $95 plus taxes per night (USD), 3 nights
