“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We took a mini family trip to the DC area. The Hyatt was located above the metro, making our day trips to DC so convenient. Bethesda has many great restaurants and shops all around the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We have a very nice dinner one of the two restaurants on site (a bit pricey for us tho.) All in all we enjoyed our stay.

I spent 2 nights at the Hyatt in Bethesda for a family get together. We requested 4 rooms near each other -- all king no-smoking. Three of the rooms were on the same floor and one room was on another. One room was "accessible" altho it was not requested or required.

On the plus side, the location was great - next to the Metro and near everything downtown. The beds & pillows were very comfortable. We had a great price ($129 per night).

On the negative side, we could hear everything the people in the next room said -- the walls must be paper thin. The furniture was old and needed some touch-ups. There was no safe in the room. The pool closed at 10 pm so we weren't able to use it.

Nice hotel but could use some updates. Room was nice size but bathroom needs some work. We were given free Internet and refrigerator for the room. Did not eat at the hotel but they do offer breakfast. There is a nice bar/ restaurant in the rear of the lobby. Pool/exercise area has a nice view on the 12th floor. Shopping and dining available a few blocks away.

Room Tip: Stay on lower floors as the elevator was slow

This was once a great hotel (1970s) right in the heart of Bethesda, right on top of the Bethesda Metro station. It has the classic space elevators and "Portman" lobby that was a wonder 40 years ago. The staff is still friendly and competent, but the hotel itself shows its age. Not a good dining scene either.

I was placed here by a local research institute when i visited as a speaker. The promise of this hotel is just phenomenal: its right on the DC Metro, it has absolutely stunning views from the rooftop pool. The main body of the hotel lobby is a huge enclosed space like the Barcelona Juan Carlos Hotel, which i usually love. The rooms, carpets, business suite--all are visibly worn and definitely in need of update. The room was average. A MAJOR crippling drawback is their petty minded internet policy, where they try to get you to pay $10 per DAY for wireless, neither classy nor cool, which is supposedly what Hyatt tries to market.

Nevertheless, the staff were so kind and helpful that my first review would have been four stars. However, (fortunately? unfortunately?) I went up to the top-floor pool and jacuzzi area...which was horrors embodied. Everything is damp, the windows are stained grungy, the tiles of the entire pool and lukewarm jacuzzi were heavily chipped up. Basically, the air tastes of a mixture of strong chlorine and decay. The contrast between the spectacular sunset and the immediate surroundings up there was stark.

The location is great, and the nearby restaurants, yoga studios, etc are awesome. The hotel is not worth the amount Hyatt charged. But the hotel is not awful, its simply not nice or pleasant.

Room Tip: Try to get an east facing. Minor advantage.

I recently spent a night at the Hyatt while in Bethesda for business. The hotel was in a great location and surrounded by tons of great restaurants, cafes and bars. Walk around! You will love the area! Positives: the staff was very helpful, beds were comfortable and the attached restaurant, the Daily Grill, served a nice breakfast and great lunch. The wifi will cost you in your room, but is free in the lobby. The hotel could use some basic updating, although the room finishes were nice. Here, I think you pay for the location and convenience of nearby amenities. Not the rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the eleventh floor rooms. You may end up with a bit of a view of the city and not the...

Living right down the street, many family members have stayed here, although none for several years, liking the proximity to Bethesda hotspots and the Metro (literally, you are steps away). While the service was pretty good, I was very disappointed by the current condition of the rooms, and rather inferior amenities, given the Hyatt's price point. Not to mention that the fitness center was closed mid-morning. We stayed as our home renovation was not completed when expected, but in considering yet another unexpected hotel night, left ASAP. Despite the hassle of relocating,and a longer work commute, it was worth going to a DC hotel which measured up. In sum, there just aren't enough hotels in Montgomery to promote competitiveness on price and quality among its "better" hoteliers.
