My girlfriend and I spent two weekend nights at the Bethesda Court while visiting the D.C. area. We chose this hotel through a Groupon offer that included the $15 parking fee, as it was so close to the Bethesda Metro Station, and we have friends who live in Bethesda.
I was a little apprehensive since I had never used Groupon for a hotel offer. So we were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The hotel while small in comparison to nearby hotels, had a comfortable and cozy lobby that was nicely appointed, and had a reading room feel to it. Our room was also cozy. It was clean and nicely furnished with a European aire to it. The bathroom was small, but very clean and also nicely appointed. The room had a flat screen TV, mini-fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, and a room safe. A paticulary nice extra is the coffee maker in the room, which is a Keurig K-Cup. And there was a selection of K-cups from which to choose.
A continental breakfast is included with your stay. It is served in a small room off the lobby, which gets crowded quickly. But there is a beautiul courtyard outside the lobby where you can take your food to eat. The selection was typical for a continental breakfast: Coffee (Starbucks brand) and juice (orange and cranberry), an assortment of bagels with butter and cream cheese, hard-boiled eggs, some pastries, milk, yogurt, and an assortment of cereals.
Unlike a previous reviewer that found the staff unfriendly and no written information on places to eat in the area. We found the desk staff to be friendly and helpful. And there was all kinds of information on places to eat and things to do in Bethesda. All in all, we had a delightful stay and would definitely stay there again.
