This is my fourth time staying at this hotel; I try to stay here every time I'm in DC because the location is so amazing. I brought my boyfriend for his first stay this time, and it was fun to see the experience through his eyes. Check-in was a breeze, as usual. The valet took my car, and we were... More

I'd rather spend a bit extra and stay at a different marriott. Decor was '70's, rooms were small, and location less than ideal. Pluses -- staff was welcoming, charming, and professional at all times. Gene the concierge gets all the credit for great restaurant rec's. Nice people, just not what I had been expecting at a Marriott hotel.

I stayed here on business for two days in October of 14. Location was great for the price and even had a complimentary breakfast. The room was very nice and clean and modern. Bed was comfortable and for being next to the busy Chinatown area it was pretty quiet. It was the most secure hotel I have ever stayed in.

The Fairfield Inn and Suites located in China Town, Washington, is, like all DC hotels, overpriced for the value. The rooms are old, need some upgrade. The HVAC has been upgraded and that is better than before. Breakfast is very good with variety and quality. Like other brand name DC hotels, the security is over the top. You need to... More

I traveled to this hotel for business. The location is quite convenient. I flew into DCA and rode the Yellow Line Metro to the Gallery Place stop. Taking the exit at 7th/H, the hotel is only 1-2 blocks away. The hotel exterior looks older, but walking inside I found a very modern hotel. Check in was quick & easy. My... More

Location is very good for sightseeing and for getting around on the Metro. The included breakfast has plenty of choices and fresh food. The hotel is clean, rooms are relatively quiet, and the staff members were all friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel is average quality (tiny rooms, basic amenities, cheapest toilet paper, minimal pillows, average bedding) with a 5-star... More

I was very impressed with this hotel! The room was clean and comfortable. Staff was great and I really liked the Irish pub that was in the hotel. Great security. The only complaint would be that one night I heard sirens all night long, however any hotel in the area would have had the same. China town is great so... More
