​Formerly, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Bethesda - Washington DC, The Bethesdan Hotel is a top choice among hotels in the area to make the most of your time in and around the capital. Relax in your modern guest room on an ultra-comfortable bed while watching a movie on the 42-inch flatscreen HDTV. Finish work at our oversized desk while staying connected with WiFi. Guests can make use of our environmentally-friendly, hybrid electric car charging stations, including a special Tesla station. Keep active with a workout in the fully equipped fitness center or swim some laps under open skies in the seasonal rooftop pool.  Use the business center to prepare for the next day or to print travel documents. 

At the end of a busy day working or exploring Washington D.C., refuel at Share Wine Lounge & Small Plates Bistro, the hotel restaurant that serves sustainable, seasonal cuisine and comfort-food favorites in a communal atmosphere.  Catch up with friends and colleagues for a glass of wine or a delicious dessert.

Walk to The National Institutes of Health or Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  Experience more than 100 shops, restaurants and entertainment spots in lively downtown Bethesda by foot, or use the complimentary bus.  Take in historic Georgetown, less than 7 miles away, or grab a free shuttle to the Metro for a short one-stop ride into Washington, D.C.  Take a tour of the White House, snap a photograph by the Washington Monument or embark on a voyage of discovery around the famous Smithsonian Institution museums.
