Amenities

Ode to Bernstein

  • The Bernstein Companies have owned and managed two hotels in Bethesda since the 1980’s. Although their first hotel, the Bethesdan Motor Hotel is now gone, The Bethesdan Hotel takes its place as a hotel designed with you in mind. Whether you’re in town on business, attending a function, or just visiting, we have everything you need to feel right at home.

    The hotel’s founder, Leo Bernstein, touched many lives as a banker, hotelier, history buff, and philanthropist. The verve with which he approached life is celebrated in our restaurant, Leo & Liv. Following in Leo’s footsteps, The Bethesdan Hotel extends a warm welcome to every person who walks through the doors.
