This hotel is in a great locations near the metro and various restaurants in Bethesda. We stayed a few nights recently during a severe, long-lasting power outage in our area. I was actually surprised that the hotel was priced at only $159/night for a king, non-smoking room given the circumstances and even MORE shocked that they had a room open. I made the reservation via Hotels.com and when we checked in, the hotel didn't have our reservation. Hotels.com was having a system glitch and no reservations were transmitting. The front desk seemed to have sympathy for our situation even though the place was a full capacity and things seemed crazy because people were desperate to get hotels rooms. They could've easily just referred us to the Hotels.com phone number and sent us away. After 30 minutes, they finally located a room and when we entered the room, it appeared to be occupied by someone else or not cleaned from the previous guest!! We went back to the lobby and after another 20-30 minutes, they finally gave us a king non-smoking room...assuming they pulled it from another guest who hadn't checked in yet? Not sure what they did but they accommodated us with the room and also with complimentary breakfast. Breakfast, valued at $15/each, was very nice. They had made-to-order omelettes, waffles and eggs of any type. They also had healthier options like fruit, yogurt, etc. I was pleasantly surprised with the sit-down, restaurant feel for a continental type breakfast. They also have a canteen in the lobby with ice cream, drinks, microwavable dinners and you can charge them to your room.
Our room was large, clean, modern, etc. The mattress was a sleep-number type of bed where you could adjust your firmess on your individual side of the bed. Loved this!!! Also, our room was right near elevator and we didn't hear a thing.
Parking is decent in the parking garage that's attached to hotel. You can pay for parking for your room upon check-in and then your room key lets you in and out of garage. You don't have to physically pay for parking using the machines in the garage. This was convenient.
Overall, can't say enough good things about this hotel for many reasons...price, location, staff, quality of rooms, etc.
