Thank you for the feedback about your recent stay. I am glad you enjoyed your visit to downtown Bethesda. In addition to the public parking across the street from the hotel, the hotel offers secure garage parking onsite.

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback about your recent visit. A good stay starts with friendly and welcoming staff that puts guest comfort first and a clean crisp room with everything in proper working order. I am sorry we let you down and did not live up to our Hilton standards. I trust you let a staff member know of these issues so we could address them immediately. It is the DoubleTree standard to provide bag-less trash receptacles in the guestrooms, though we would have been happy to provide some bags for you, I am sorry this was not communicated. Thanks again for your feedback we hope you consider staying with us again so we may demonstrate our commitment to your comfort.

Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay. I am glad you had a good stay and were able to enjoy the conveniences of the hotel. Our location in downtown Bethesda is surrounded by hundreds of local restaurants and shops and being within walking distance to NIH and the Bethesda Metro Stations makes us one of the more popular places for overnight travelers. There is a public parking lot across the street of the hotel that offers free parking on the weekends although many guests prefer the hotel's convenient and secure underground garage parking, for a fee. I am glad you were able to enjoy the hotel restaurant as well and spent happy hour with us during your stay. Thanks again for your comments, we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Definitely in need of updating. The tiling in the bathroom was just bizarre as if they ran out of money and just stopped. Lighting in bathroom was horrible for putting on makeup. While it’s great to have a makeup mirror since it was not lighted you need to have great lighting otherwise the makeup mirror is not useful. Asked for a quiet room and ended up listening to doors constantly slamming or closing in rooms next and across from us and this was all evening and morning. Food at restaurant was okay nothing special but given the snowstorm it was quite handy which we were glad to not have to go back out.

I apologize that your room was not to your expectation and that some of our other guests disturbed your stay. If there are an issues with your room or noise during any future stays please do not hesitate to let our front desk know so it can be addressed. We are beginning an update to the property which will modernize the hotel’s look from top to bottom and address the lighting and design concerns that you have mentioned.

Wonderful place to stay near the NIH center.

Pros: The staff was AMAZING! They were so friendly and attentive to my needs. They also offered great advice on how to get around town.
Cons: I honestly can't say that there was much of anything wrong, except perhaps the bathroom door didn't really close easily.
Location: The location is great for anyone visiting the NIH center. The great thing is the Metro station is nearby so you can easily get to D.C.
I found the Double Tree staff to be incredibly friendly and attentive to customer needs. I ate at the restaurant and the food was DELICIOUS! The complimentary shuttle was vital to allowing me more time to research. The staff was also very helpful in giving me instructions on how to use the Metro and what stops I should look for. This 11th floor room had lovely corner window so I could sit and watch the world (especially when a nasty storm came though). I really can't say I had any problems.

Decent stay.

Pros: The staff was fantastic!
Cons: Update the rooms - at a minimum the beds.
Location: There is a subway connection close by, so the entire area is easily accessible. There are also plenty of food options within walking distance.
The staff at the hotel was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Our trip included very long travel with a small child and the staff made checking in, checking out, and the overall stay quite nice. This includes wait staff at the in-house eatery. The rooms, however, were dated. The beds were relatively uncomfortable, as well. They kept it clean, but I'm there to mostly sleep...
