ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
(LOCATION, PARKING, RESTAURANTS)

Getting There

Airports

  • Dulles International Airport (IAD)
  • Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI)
  • Reagan-National Airport (DCI)

All three airports are serviced by two commercial van services, SuperShuttle (800/776-0323) and Bethesda Shuttle (202/590-7516).  

  • Metrorail: The Hyatt Regency Bethesda is located directly above the Bethesda Metro Station, which is on the Red Line. 
  • Metrobus: The J4 Express and J2 bus lines connect the Hyatt Regency Bethesda to the Silver Spring Metro and the Medical Center Metro stations.  In addition, the Montgomery County Ride-On bus lines include:
    • From the North, routes 29, 32, 34, and 70
    • From the South, route 34

Train

Several train lines converge on Union Station, in downtown Washington DC:

  • Metrorail red line, which runs directly to the Hyatt Regency Bethesda
  • Amtrak lines from New York City, Pittsburg, and Richmond
  • MARC trains from the Penn and Camden lines (Baltimore) and from the Brunswick line (Frederick, MD, and Martinsburg, WV)
  • VRE trains from the Manassas and Fredericksburg lines

Driving

The Hyatt Regency Bethesda hotel is located at the five-way intersection of Wisconsin Ave (MD-355), Old Georgetown Rd (MD-187), and the East-West Highway (MD-410).  From the Capital Beltway (I-495), take Wisconsin Ave southbound for 2-1/2 miles, the hotel will be on the right.

Parking

  • The Hyatt Regency Bethesda utilizes a private company to manage its in-ground parking garage. Note: the garage clearance is only 6 feet (1.8m).  The last two bullets are the hotel’s standard rates, but you can validate your parking ticket at the front desk to get the better rates of the other bullets.
    • Up to 1 hour, $6.00; 1-2 hours, $10.00 
    • In after 4PM out before midnight, $8.00
    • In by 9AM out by 9PM, $8; all day $12.00 (until midnight)
    • Overnight Self: with in and out, $22; no in and out, $12
    • Day Valet: $18; Overnight Valet: $30
  • Two commercial parking companies have garages and parking lots available (variable rates) within one block of the hotel.
  • Montgomery County offers several nearby metered parking garages that are $1/hour on weekdays (until 10:00 PM) and free on weekends. Payment can be made with coins, bills, and credit cards.  The two closest garages are:
    • The Waverly (7401 Waverly Street), which is one block East of the hotel; and
    • The Metropolitan garage (7601 Woodmont Ave), which is about two blocks West of the hotel.

Local Interest

  • Circulator:  The free Bethesda Circulator bus, which stops in front of the hotel, is a convenient way to get around the bustling downtown streets of downtown Bethesda, however, it does not operate on Sundays.
  • Walking: Capital Crescent Trail, an 8-mile path that starts 2 blocks south of hotel, leads to and along the Potomac river, to Georgetown in downtown DC.  (Note, the return trip will be uphill.)
  • Wellness:
  • Shopping: Bethesda Row, one large city-block of stores and restaurants located roughly ¼ mile to the south and west of the hotel, spanning storefronts that face Elm St, Woodmont Ave, Bethesda Ave, and Arlington Rd.
  • Movies: Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema, 7235 Woodmont Ave (4 blocks).

Additionally, all of the monuments, museums, and other sights in downtown Washington DC are readily accessible by Metrorail, roughly a 30 minute ride each way.  Various companies offer sight-seeing tours that leave from Union Station.

Restaurants

The hotel sits in the center of a wide range of high-quality restaurants of various cuisines and price-points — so many that they cannot all be listed here.  Below is a sampling of interesting restaurants within a half-mile radius of the hotel.  The asterisk indicates the restaurant offers delivery directly; others use GrubHub, Uber Eats, Caviar, or other delivery services.
