The price and the location were terrific. The hotel is very clean and well kept. Very good value for the price.

The rooms are compact with only a shower (at least in my room). The location of my room did not have much sunlight exposure. That with the heavy drapes and color scheme made the room dark.

The staff is friendly and if my stay was for 1-2 nights, I would stay again, For longer stays, I would find other options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with exposure to the sun if this is important to you.

Do not shop online and go to the wrong hotel. The neighborhood is great and the staff is very polite and knowlegable about the area.

Pros
Great location! It was close to shops and services we needed during our trip (i.e. 7-Eleven, Safeway, CVS and the Bethesda Diner).
The staff was extremely helpful with directions to a luncheon we had to attend.
Clean, cozy rooms and comfortable bedding. Our family had no problem sleeping during our stay. This is the first hotel where I did not have to clean out the coffeemaker! It was spotless and odor free!

Cons
None

If we ever return to the Washington D.C. area, this is the place we will come back and stay

This affordable European-style boutique hotel is located in a safe area within short walking distance to many fine restaurants, boutiques, and a Red Line metro station. Our room was quite comfortable - especially the fluffy beds and homey decor. We really enjoyed eating our breakfast in the nice, quiet courtyard. The secure parking lot, room refrigerator, free water and chocolates were nice amenities. The front desk staff was helpful and the housekeeping was excellent. We will definitely return here in the future. Drawbacks were the small bathroom that did not have any counter space or fan and the slight musty smell in the lobby and hallways.

Hotel is conveniently located amongst shops, malls, churches , grocery stores and restaurants. Staying here for a month was like home away from home. Parking was free. Hotel staff were very accommodating and helpful. For NIH visitors, NIH shuttle was available. For any other visitors, the hotel's limousine was available.
Customers are greeted with friendly staff and treated to free water and dark chocolates!
(a treat after any travel). Highly recommended.
King size rooms were clean and spacious, beds and pillows were comfortable. Free continental breakfast every morning as well! Beautiful gardens perfect for meditation.

Needed to be intown for a wedding, we discovered BCH and were well pleased. Comfy beds, sparkling, well-lit bathroom, easy access to the parking, attentive staff, suitable light breakfast buffet w/ very good coffee made for a memorable visit. A short walk from the Metro. Convenient location to Chevy Chase. Look forward to a return visit!

Pros:

There are plenty: Friendly staff, beautiful courtyard for relaxing, free wireless Internet access, excellent location within easy walking distance of great shops, restaurants and the Metro; free use of PCs in the lobby to print boarding passes.

Cons:

Small kinda dark rooms (they applied some kind of plastic film over the windows, I assume to deflect heat from sunlight).

Hallways and stairwells were not temperature controlled - so when it was 85 degrees and humid outside, it was the same in the hallway.

In-room air conditioners were crummy. The thermostat didn't appear to work. When it was set to 70, it just blew warm and humid air. When it was set low enough to cool (around 60), it was too cold. And loud. Bummer.
