Great location very poor wifi clean and a very good room size

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was lovely and comfortable. A very convenient location to shopping and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again!

Enjoyed our stay here prior to moving our daughter into AU. Great breakfast with variety. Short walk to Metro. Parking adds up at $25/day. Pool pleasant, would have liked it open longer than 12-8. Very clean unit, quiet, comfy beds and kitchen was sufficient. Plan to stay here again!

nice value for money, clean Full breakfast but would have liked more vegan dishes One Elevator broken the full 4 days, so it took a long time to get the one available elevator

This location is IDEAL - walk to everything if you are staying in Bethesda - but we had some real difficulties - we upgraded our reservation to pay for parking - they still charged us. We complained that the heat wasn't working - they left us a message and said the air conditioning was working. On a playoff night of football - with our team playing on NBC - it was the only channel NOT working and they never got it fixed. We had to stream it on a computer and never apologized. Breakfast is great. But it seemed like they were not too responsive to our issues!

We currently live in Florida but unfortunately had to return to Maryland for my father's funeral. We have stayed at other Residence Inns so we knew this hotel would live up to our expectations. The location was great as we are familiar with the Bethesda area and were looking to return to our favorite nearby restaurants. Will continue to be a Marriot customer.

I've been going to the Residence Inn in Bethesda for many years. This time i brought my 3 children. Having the kitchenette was great for the endless snacks they consume. The pull out couch was great as well. The location is convenient to the Metro and to the restaurants of Bethesda. Valet parking was reasonable and the attendants were great. The breakfast buffet was nice to have...not the best, but served the purpose. Can't go wrong with this hotel.

Nice large room for three people with one on sleeper/pullout. Entrance to bathroom is in bedroom and should be from main room.

Great service pulled up in front of hotel was immediately met by valet service they helped us unlaod and get into the hotel. Desk clerk checked us in right away provided us with area map and list local shops and restaurants. Got to our room neat clean and comfortable stayed 2 nights. Complimentary breakfast excellent. Could not have had better service felt like home very comfortable.

Surprised by the large selection of breakfast items at the included buffet and free food and drink at "the social" during evenings mid-week. Free Wi-Fi in the room worked well. There was a kitchen and separate living room that we hardly used. I almost chose another hotel because there wasn't an indoor pool, but I'm glad I stayed where I did. Hotel location is convenient to the subway to DC and it's in easy walking distance to many restaurants, stores and night life in downtown Bethesda. I'd stay there again.

This hotel was perfectly located, and a great time was had. They desparately need a bar/restaurant to get to the next level. The breakfast buffet added tremendous value. The front desk was super helpful before, during, and after our stay. Would come back!

It was everything it was advertised and more. Rooms were great, up today with desk, lighting, kitchen. The valet parking worked wonders, a block from the DC Metro in the heart of Bethesda. Even the free morning Breakfast was better quality than we expected. Could not have asked for more

Overall experience was good. Arrived at 8pm and there was no place to get food. Menus for restaurants that deliver in the area but they all took an hour to deliver.

Terrific location, great hotel, valet parking was quick and inexpensive. Close to Metro and district of Columbia.

Nice room that seems newly renevated. Tasty breakfast included.

good experience. excellent staff. free continental breakfast buffet and washington post daily. except for a broken shower (which they are willing to repair immediately), overall experience is great.

Great amenities. Great location. Great service.

The main reasons I decided to stay at this hotel was the location and cost. It was 4 blocks from where my continuing education course was held and it was less costly than neighboring hotels. The suite was large, the bed and chaise lounge comfortable and having a kitchenette is always convenient! The only complaints I have is that I think the hotels main A/C vent ran right through my closet--luckily I brought earplugs! Also, when I called about transportation from the airport the front desk failed to tell me that the Metro was 1 block from the hotel. I spent $30 and 1.5 hours on the shuttle when I could have spent $2.35 and 30 minutes on the train getting to the hotel.

very nice.

Will definitely stay here during our next trip to DC. Will make the trip a longer stay because the hotel met all of our needs for longer stay without adding to much to the cost of the vacation. Can plan to have a few meals in the room with the kitchen. Great location.
