Even thou the hotel is located in a very nice area of Bethesda, and the pictures were showing a very nice place, it was another thing when we get there. Parking lot was free, but not enough space for the vehicles. The condition of the room was very poor, I had a terrible nuggg slewing in that mattress. I think they have bug beds. The pillows smelled like terrible, like not well washed. I do not like it my staying in that hotel.

The hot water would take long to get heated. The rooms weren’t getting made. Had to call front disk for towels everyday and for them to pick up trash.

Our room was directly next to Guapo restaurant which played extremely loud music until 11:20 pm. We endured it for 2 hours before asking the front desk staff to have it turned down. They told that us the restaurant often plays it loudly. The hotel sent a person to ask for the volume to be turned down. Their request was ignored. I asked for a room change but was told they didn’t have any rooms for 4 people. Music was playing again in the morning when we checked out at 9:00 am. I would not stay in this facility again. Our room was #130.
