The Doubletree Bethesda Hotel is getting a new name and a new look.
By the end of September, the hotel, at 8120 Wisconsin Ave., will launch as The Bethesdan Hotel, and will feature renovated rooms, a larger fitness center, additional retail space and a new restaurant.
The Bethesdan Hotel will be part of Hilton’s Tapestry Collection brand – a series of upscale luxury hotels across the country. The Bethesda hotel will be the first Tapestry Collection hotel in Maryland.
“Having owned and managed hotels in Bethesda since the 1980’s, we are delighted to bring to life The Bethesdan, the first lifestyle hotel in the market.” said Davin Driskill, senior vice president of Washington-based TBC Hotels in a press release Monday.
TBC Hotels purchased the Doubletree in Nov. 2016, said Alec Sherman, the director of asset management for TBC. He said the targeted opening date is Sept. 30.
Sherman added that all of the hotel’s 270 rooms will have 55-inch TVs, upgraded showers and blackout shades for floor-to-ceiling windows. He also said the hotel will have 1,600 square feet of retail space facing Wisconsin Avenue.
Sherman said that because of the upgrades to the hotel, the prices of rooms will increase, but he declined to say by how much.
Leo & Liv, a farm-to-table restaurant, will serve American cuisine with a “Mediterranean twist” according to the press release. The press release also stated that there will be a new bar called BFD (but first drinks) that will serve craft beer and wine as well as curated cocktails.
