I stayed at the Hyatt for three nights during a conference at the hotel and I have to say, I was really happy with the whole experience. I usually stay in the District and this was the first time I have stayed outside the city and wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Check in was fast and friendly, just as you expect with any Hyatt hotel. The lobby was nice, great music, small bar and a Morton's Steakhouse. Self parking was no hassle, although you do have the option of valet as well.
The rooms were quite nice and updated, although the 1990's style TV was sort of funny, it looked totally out of place as the rooms were more modern than most Hyatt's, but the TV was clearly not. The bathroom was typical Hyatt and I mean that in a nice way. No wear or tear that I noticed, just a large, clean and comfortable room (with those Hyatt beds!).
Location could not have been better! If you're arriving late and looking for something to eat, around the corner is every type of food you could desire. It's actually a pretty vibrant scene in Bethesda, much more so than I would have expected. Lot's of young couples and single's walking around the downtown area, I though for a minute I was in DC.
The Metro is next door, which makes this hotel a winner in my book. It's a mere 15 minutes on the train to Dupont Circle and a few minutes more for points beyond. When I think of the times I paid top dollar for a room in the District during an event or a demonstration week (that you never seem to know about in advance), I wonder why I didn't think the Hyatt in Bethesda before!
I can't say enough about the location, the city of Bethesda or the people there, it was such a great weekend I really can't wait to back and try the restaurants I missed (there are LOTS of them, I can tell you that). Next time you're having trouble getting a room in DC, think "outside the DC box" and think a few stops on the Red Line, you won't be disappointed.
