“Nice hotel, very good value-location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Convenient location, 2 blocks from a collection of restaurants and bars. Definitely a good location for someone unfamiliar with the area. Was given a welcome bag of 2 waters and trailmix upon arrival...which was a nice surprise as usually you wish you had a bottle of water in your room that didn't have to come out of the mini bar. There was an empty fridge and coffee maker/coffee for the morning. The "view" basically wasn't there...stayed on 13th fl. and had a view of parking lots and buildings nearby. The hallway on the 13th fl. smelled like gas, which I was told was from the kitchen...They offered to switch out our room with another but our room smelled fine and we stayed put. Later in the day the hallway smell was gone. Was give a coupon for a free drink at the bar, which I used and enjoyed a beer in my room. Was pleasantly surprised to receive free internet, which is usually not the case in a big metro area. I liked there was a room key needed to operate the elevator, however if that was necessary to keep guests secure, I didn't notice any other security. Nice hotel, nice staff.

Friendly check-in staff. Nice, quiet, clean rooms. Delicious hot breakfast. A perfect facility for a business trip. The proximity to businesses and good restaurants is excellent. The fitness facility had limited equipment so an early start is essential.

This hotel was conveniently located for public transportation, walking, or driving. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, and the room itself was clean and comfortable. We had a great experience overall!

This is my third stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, and if anything the service has improved. Still the same for the past few years, and that's good. I have stayed in almost all the hotels etc in Bethesda and this is the best there is in the area. Keep it up!

Room Tip: High floor.

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.
