I stayed at the Hyatt in Bethesda for two nights in September. The hotel is easy to find and has parking in the garage under the hotel, although it costs $10 per night. The hotel has a newly added Mortons Steakhouse and another grill. Both are good, although the grill has very slow service. Room service for breakfast is very good and fast. So everything around the guest rooms is good and lives up to the Hyatt expectations. However, the guest rooms did not meet my expectations. Everything in them is old and out dated. The carpets are not necessarily dirty, but well used. The walls are scratched and torn in some places and the doors are scratch. The bathrooms again were not dirty, but were in serious need of repair. There was missing grout and caulking all over the shower. It looked like a bathroom from a cheap budget hotel. The bed was hard as a rock (not pillow-top) and the linens are not plush like in other business hotels. You are paying for location when staying at this hotel and not for the Hyatt experience. The hotel is situated directly on top of the Metro Red Line. They do charge $9.95 per night for wireless internet. So you can add an additional $20 to the room rates for internet and parking combined which is a little rediculous when paying the already high room rates. Try staying somewhere else that is within close walking distance to the metro station. There are plenty of other places to stay when visiting Bethesda or the NIH.
