Hyatt Regency Bethesda is all about getting you where you want to be. If you’d like to kick it in your suburban surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle, that’s easy – you’re right in the middle of town. If you prefer to tour America’s capital, you can quite literally just head downstairs: This property is the only one directly atop Bethesda’s Metrorail station. In just a matter of minutes, you’ll be at the foot of the National Mall or the restaurants of Chinatown.
If you’re looking to stay in and rest up, you don’t have to leave at all. Guest rooms are complete with a Hyatt Grand Bed or Beds, plus a spa-style bathroom and a 55-in. flat-screen HDTV apiece, to keep you extra-comfortable. And don’t forget about the filling American cuisine, served at the grill and the hotel’s own Morton’s, The Steakhouse dining room. Because even if you don’t end up hanging around the D.C. politicos, you deserve to eat like one.
Your room is a comfortably appointed retreat, with one or two Hyatt Grand Beds, 240 square feet of space and a 55-in. flat-screen HDTV. Wi-Fi is complimentary, and you’ll enjoy a recently updated bathroom. Choose between a king- or two queen-sized beds, and go with the higher-floor option to enjoy lovely views across the city.
For breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour, Daily Grill Bethesda is your spot, open seven days a week. Expect classic American cuisine, including burgers, seafood plates and steak – also the specialties at Hyatt’s Morton’s, The Steakhouse location, where dinners are served in a formal setting. Room service is available from the first of these two convenient dining outlets.
Bethesda is just a half-hour drive from iconic D.C. landmarks, like the White House, the Capitol, the Smithsonian and Embassy Row. You can also hop on the Metrorail Red Line, which stops directly downstairs and gets you to the heart of the city in about 15 minutes. Closer to home are restaurants, shops, museums and galleries, along with Matthew Henson State Park, a popular hiking and rollerblading destination.
How to Get There
This is a relatively large hotel with modern, clean facilities. Check-in is efficient and the rooms were clean and equipped with all the basics including decent coffee by the cup. There was a refrigerator but no mini bar and there were large bottles of water for purchase in the room. The wireless system did not work with my name and room number but the front reception team gave me a code for the system. There is a rooftop reception area that has great views of the area and an exercise room that I did not have time to check out (although there is no pool). There is a Starbucks in the lobby and a Morton's steak house (unfortunately the bar closes early--10:30).
The rooms are clean, comfortable and soothing after a busy day. There is little to no noise from other rooms or from the atrium. The sitting rooms in the king-size rooms was a welcome relief to catch up on office work after a busy day.
Stayed hear for a conference but brought family. The location of the hotel was great - the Metro stop is literally just below the hotel. We were able to hop the metro back and forth for dinners and sight seeing in DC. There is a beautiful park with the water fountains next to the hotel. You can walk to a large number of restaurants and shops in less than 10 minutes. And the area is very safe and pedestrian friendly.
My room was facing the main street and was still very quiet. When I stay in DC I can hear the sirens and horns but didn't hear any street noises in Bethesda - I could have been in the country it was so quiet.
There is starbucks coffee in the room and a decent size refrigerator for keeping cold drinks and snacks. My only issue was that my coffee was not replenished my last night so I had to run to the real Starbucks for coffee my last morning. Kind of a pain when you are at a conference and want that morning coffee and not running into other conference attendees half awake. But unlike a lot of starbucks in hotels this was full service and you could order from the app.
Would definitely stay here again if I am in Bethesda.
Tann, at front desk personalized his service to his client. From curbside to room service, each interaction was efficient and pleasant. Beds were very firm. Not great on my back. That is my only complaint.
Recently stayed at the Bethesda Hyatt for a conference. The staff did a very good job - they were prepared for check-in of a large group of people and to answer questions. They even allowed early check-ins. For the conference, they had a lot of break-out rooms available as well as a large ballroom for lunch/dinners. The food was also very good.
Rooms were very comfortable and clean with big screen tv's. As far as convenience, there is a Starbucks in the lobby as well as a Morton's Steak House - sampled both! There are also a number of other restaurants very close within walking distance of one or two blocks.. The immediate proximity to the Metro (especially the red line which takes you directly to the capital area of DC) was really convenient. It was great not to have to drive downtown.
If you are parking at the hotel, the parking garage can get very crowded and it can be hard to find a place to park. It does not seem to be a problem later in the day, but if you need to be there in the morning, get there early to park.
