Stayed here with the family to see some Washington sites. It is clean and comfortable and reasonably priced for the city. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is ok and it helps with the family budget a bit. It's a good location to walk or use the nearby Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro to see National Mall sites. Rooms... More

We stayed at this location for a long weekend. Staff was personable and helpful! We had a room on the 10th floor with a nice view and little road noise. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was better than expected with many choices! This hotel is in a great location and we were able to walk all around town. There... More

Good for one night for business. Clean room with shallow closet (hangers face you, not perpendicular when you hang clothes). Good breakfast (had scrambled eggs and sausage in addition to waffle maker with batter, bagels, muffins, fruit, etc). A little noisy because can hear neighbors fumbling with doors and it makes you feel like they are about to come in.... More

Nice little hotel in the midst of the city center, well almost. Getting out of the cab on the busy street was a challenge with the bags. The reception was small. Rooms were small but comfortable. nice area for breakfast in the morning. It was easy to access most of the attractions from here. The white house , the musuems... More

We stayed at the Fairfield for a few nights in the middle of April for a conference that was held nearby. I've been to DC dozens of times but have never stayed in Chinatown as I prefer the DuPont area. That being said, I grew to enjoy the location of the Fairfield over the days. You can walk to the...

I have stayed several times in this hotel which has great potential. It is conveniently located very close to a Metro station and within 1 mile to the main government buildings in Washington. The rooms are very small, but pleasantly arranged and still in good shape. The place is clean and the hotel personnel are really making an effort to... More

My boyfriend and I went for what we thought would be a day trip to see the cherry blossoms, but after dinner, we decided we wanted to spend the night in DC. We've stayed at this hotel before (and I've stayed here on other occasions over the past 2 years), so we walked a few blocks to the hotel and... More

I chose this hotel based on location, review and the fact that I had some rewards points to use. The hotel is on the last corner of Chinatown, with many restaurants nearby. On the night we arrived we were trying to eat dinner around 10PM and were shocked how few places were able to take us. The staff at the... More

We stayed here for the reasons I listed above. It was close enough to walk to anywhere's in DC, either incorporating the Metro, or finding instant car services. Its located in Chinatown, which ,unlike Chinatown,NYC, here its clean everywhere you go, as was all of DC. One suggestion is to try and book a room into the back of the... More

For what they charged I was underwhelmed. Tiny room. A closet for just a couple of items. Noisy Heater/air conditioner. Uncomfortable beds and pillows. Not a very informative staff. Next time I'm in DC I will pay a little more to get a lot better hotel.
