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.

This hotel is located next to a Metro stop, and within a couple blocks of several nice restaurants in Bethesda, so the location is great. The service was excellent, and the meeting facilities were very good for small gatherings. The rooms were in need of an update, and not up to the Hyatt standard. The lobby also needs some attention. The price is high, which may be worth it to some for the location, but for the price, I expect a nicer room and internet should be included, and the fitness facility is not worth mentioning.

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight. OK room, nothing special. Kind of dark. We did eat at the pub next door which was kind of loud. Nice workout area with a pool. There is a little fast breakfast spot downstairs for a nice continental breakfast, if need be.

The location of the hotel is fabulous. It sits right atop the Bethesda Metro on the red line - which means you can go to the DC mall to the museums or to VA without traffic or parking hassles. It is only a very short walk to numerous restaurants, shopping and social entertainment (movie theater close, as is a kids activity center located only 2 blocks away.) The roof top pool was great, albeit a bit over-chlorinated. Rooms had a fridge and free internet.

This is a fairly standard Hyatt with well-appointed rooms and the expect amenities. It is centrally located in the Bethesda commercial area, and next to a metro stop, making it very easy to go into DC. About the only downside is that this is a large, atrium style hotel, so that noise in the lobby can drift into rooms. Otherwise, it is fine.

We stayed at the Bethesda Hyatt for a few days while sightseeing in DC.

The rate was affordable, thanks to a Hotwire special. The location turned out to be perfect, as it's literally right above a Metro station. It only took us 25-30 minutes to get into the city on the red line. It's also just a few blocks away from Bethesda Row, a nice outdoor shopping center with a ton of restaurants, shops, and two movie theaters.

All of the rooms are arranged around a central atrium, which was neat. We didn't use it, but the pool and exercise rooms on the top floor were surprisingly nice.

The room itself was just okay. Everything is a bit dingy and dated. Old TV, semi-comfortable bed, and dusty furniture. Wish we would have been able to crack a window. Extra fees were pretty typical. Wi-fi service cost $10 per day and parking in the underground garage was $15-20 per night.

We weren't in DC to hang out in the room, so it ended up being just fine. The super convenient location far outweighed the mediocrity of the facilities.

Just returned from a wonderful visit.

The service staff was wonderful, from guest reception to the housekeepers and concierge. Very professional and courteous!

The location of this property was perfect for us to visit the sites of DC, as it is located on top (literally) of the Metro. Great dining options too - all within walking distance.

Look forward to going back next time we are in DC area.
