This will be our first trip, and I was looking at hotels in the Silver Spring area. Is that a safe area? We may also be renting a carbecause the event we are going to be attending will be in the Greenbelt area. I've read reviews that the Greenbelt area isn't all that safe, and that's why I started looking at the Silver Spring area. We would also like to be in an area with shopping, restaurants, etc. We will be visiting for 3 nights. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks And that is only if you can't afford hotels n the areas generally recommended here.
Not quite right--you definitely want to stay clear of the Days Inn or Travelodge or whatever it's currently called, I think they switch the name back-and-forth every time trouble is reported there at 13th Street. The other hotels are decent and convenient so long as they're located in the zipcode.
If they're not in that zipcode, be aware they will be further out in the suburbs, not walking distance to the amenities and the Metrorail. The other consideration is the "event" you're attending--is it once, or would it require travel to Greenbelt several times over your stay?
If it's once, I wouldn't think it's necessary to stay very close to Greenbelt. Likewise, access to the Metrorail isn't all that important if you're not planning on seeing the sites in Washington. You may have a better time with the amenities in Bethesda than you would in Silver Spring, and the drive to Greenbelt is only about 10 minutes further. No big deal if you're only doing it once. I also wouldn't totally rule out staying in Greenbelt with the right hotel choice, especially if you'll be going there multiple times. You'll probably want a car wherever you're staying.
Greenbelt isn't particularly sketchy. If you work on it, you can probably get in trouble there, but that's true of just about anywhere. I was the one who recommended another poster not stay there, but that had to do with the fact that she was not going to have a carand the hotels are in the middle of office parks that are deserted at night, and I don't think it's a good idea to wander through deserted areas on foot after dark. Plus, getting around via bus isn't convenient. If most of your time is going to be spent at the event in Greenbelt, I recommend staying there.
I will only have to be in the Greenbelt area hours maxium on one of my nights while visiting.
I'm going to also look at hotels in the Bethesda area. Thanks for the info. Bethesda is one of the more upscale suburbs of Washington and similar to Silver Spring in that there are hotels in the downtown business district where the restaurants and shops are and others that aren't walking distance to much of anything other than a major shopping mall. With the exception of the Bethesda Marriottany of the hotels in the zipcode are located where you'll want to be. There is a relatively new Hilton Garden Inn that gets good reviews here, is usually reasonably-priced, and is close to the action.
If you choose to stay in either downtown Bethesda or Silver Spring, you could do the entire trip without a car were it not for your event in Greenbelt. That would mean renting a car for one day or looking into a taxi. You may also want to check with the event host to see if anyone happens to be coming from that direction who might be able to give you a lift one or both ways.
