There were a few minor issues with this hotel stay- nothing major or that would prevent me from staying here again. The important thing to note is that the staff did everything they could to make up for these issues and they were wonderful. Room service was great and the place was clean.

Only one elevator operating in the hotel - used both for guests and services. Opted to walk down from the 10th floor every morning rather than waiting for generally overcrowded elevator. Lost internet one night despite numerous calls with desk and tech support.

Hello Kevincharles L, Thank you for staying with us and for the candid feedback. I am happy to report that elevator maintenance is now concluded and all elevators are in service. The lapse in internet service was an isolated outage with the provider. Internet connectivity, which is complementary to our Hilton HHonors guests, has been restored. Due to our convenient...

This is one of the worst hotel I have stayed in a long time. Elevators are broken, Internet does not work, you have to wait for at least 30 mins to get checked in, what else can go wrong ? Being a diamond member, I was very much disappointed. Hilton should look into this. Will never stay again here.

Rough experience this past week. Would not recommend this hotel to others. One elevator serviced 16 floors. Wait time to get elevator ranged around 10 minutes. Guest Room had hair everywhere. It was not clean at all. All for three times what one should pay for a hotel this quality.

Everything was perfect and staff was very accommodating. Kudos to Penny Mirna who checked me in she was awesome. My room was very clean, I like having the opportunity to go green by not having my room service in exchange for the $8.00 coupon to use at the restaurant or bar.

Convenient hotel for a conference or if you need to go to the NIH. You can walk to the metro station or take the hotel shuttle (every 30 min). Surroundings are fine. Several places nearby for a drink or food. Hotel is ok but not very lively. Having a dinner over there is a bit depressive. Rooms are big and...

I am a HHonors Gold member and travel a lot and usually stay at Hilton most of the times. This particular property has gradually declined in its ability to live up to be a Hilton property.

Old, out-dated hotels are common in Bethesda, but the Doubletree Hotel is one of the worst. There is very little at this hotel that is good. The problems were apparent right from the beginning. The front desk was understaffed, and there was a long time to check in. After checking in, the hotel pointed out that 2 of the 3...

The hotel wants to be better than it is, as evidenced by the welcoming bell captain and parking administration. Alas, the infrastructure inside doesn't match the aspirations. Staff are invariably friendly but the bathrooms needed grout first and consistent temperature second. I still don't understand why Hilton has to renew Internet connections every 24 hours, when one checks in for...
