“Nice Play to Stay in Downtown Silver Spring”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

The staff was awesome! The room (2 double bed suite) was interesting. I think because I had a corner room, it made it a little different.
PROS:
-Staff
-Rate for room (good price)
-You are given a complimentary (and delicious) cookie at check in
-Location to downtown Silver Spring. This hotel is in close proximity to almost anything you need. CVS, WholeFoods, the Fillmore, a shopping center, a huge 20 screen movie theatre and great restaurants. I even saw an outside ice skating rink.
-Bedroom in my suite was separated from 'living area' by glass doors.
-Breakfast buffet was good (but not free)
CONS
-Not enough lighting in the bedroom
-Mirrors not placed in good areas around the room for maximum use (ie- one mirror was in the living area, but because of the furniture, it was hard to get to.)
-No microwave or mini refrigerators. You have to rent a mini refrigerator that is brought to your room by housekeeping.
-Living area was a little small. When the refrigerator was brought to my room, furniture had to be moved to get it next to an outlet.
-Your vehicle has to be parked at hotel via valet. There is self-parking garages in the area, but not connected to the hotel.
-Glass doors to bedroom blocked view of TV from one bed, and blocked full access to the living area from the other bed, when fully opened.

Room Tip: -The room I had was in a corner of the building (Rm 828). Not the best of views out of the small wi...

I have been to my share of Double Trees and I know how they can be a hit or miss - this was a hit! It has been updated with a classics contemporary feel. Rooms are nice and spacious. Bed was super comfortable which made for a great nights sleep. Located in center of town near lots of restaurants and shopping. Bar tender was super friendly and room service was on time and very good. All staff I encountered were pleasant. Only neg is that walls are a bit thin, I could hear conversations and hair dryers and toilets etc but since I was on top floor it wasn't so bad. I would stay again!

I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the rooms very well kept. The location of the hotel is excellent in the fact that it's only a block to "Downtown Silver Springs", where there are plenty of resteraunts and lots of things to do.

have stayed here three times in the last 6 months and each time has seen improvements. on the plus side the hotel is clean, convenient, and the staff is very considerate. The room was comfortable and clean and internet connection was excellent. Room carpeting is dingy. The heating system did not work very well and it was difficult to heat the room. If heat left on through the night it was too noisy. All in all this s a very convenient, friendly place to stay. The hotel is gradually renovating and improving. I will stay again.

This place has the most friendly, helpful, and solicitous staff I've almost ever met. The front desk clerk at check in was super-efficient and nice, and she went above and beyond and moved us to a two-room suite so we'd have enough sleeping space for us and our kids. When I had to call and ask for a replacement coffee maker, the evening concierge was up in minutes with a replacement, apologizing and asking if he could do anything else for us. Literally, every person I ran into - housekeeping, manager, life guard, desk clerks, parking valets - was friendly and eager to help. Yes, the actual building is a bit tired and dated, but the beds are comfortable (good pillows and linens) and the staff made the experience great!

If your're going to the Fillmore for an event THIS is the hotel you want to stay at...1 block away, could see the venue from my hotel window. Staff was kind & the price was RIGHT! Everything from shopping to fine dinning is within walking distance as well.
