Great hotel, the staff was super and very helpful. The location is good, you can walk to a lot of the attractions and museums. Your right in the heart of China Town. My only complaint, and it has nothing to do with the hotel, was the amount of homeless people that where in the area. I was really surprised to... More

I have stayed here 5 times. Great location for downtown area. China town and Version Center. Close to metro and within walking distance to National Mall. (One mile) The staff is overly friendly. Clean rooms, safe environment. Great breakfast and the attached restaurant bar is good. Nightly music, good food and cold beers! Inexpensive for the downtown DC area. Want... More

We were only in D. C. for 2 nights, just a short stay. I found this hotel via Trip Adviser and got a good price on the room. It turned out to be a good value. The room was comfortable, though small. Good for a business traveler, with lots of power outlets, etc. The decor of rooms, halls and lobby... More

We spent two nights and it was very comfortable. Beds were big with fluffy pillows and blankets. Shower could use better skid resistance but does have a handle to hold. Breakfast had lots of choices from eggs & waffles to yogurt and fresh fruit. Staff was very friendly.

This hotel is within blocks of the Smithsonian and the WW II memorial and other site. On site parking (valet only) is available, but not cheap by my standard. The amenities are the standard Fairfield Inn with the addition of a connecting Irish Pub/Restaurant which will also provide room service.The room was clean and large (we had 2 queen size... More

Handy to down town offices, Verizon Center and such tourist attractions as the Building Museum. Average room for the Fairfield but a superior breakfast compared with others in the chain. I've stayed there several times, and during the spring and summer there can be quite an overwhelming number of tourists.

Washington put its best face forward for my sister and I during our recent visit (5/23-5/25). Kudos to the people who made these parts of our stay exceptional: ACCOMODATIONS – Fairfield Inn & Suites, 500 H St. NW (Chinatown) • Attentive, cheerful staff – from a bathmat request, luggage delivery, housekeeping, or a curbside taxi whistle – exemplary! • Chobani...

Clean room, good huge breakfast. Free coffee/tea throughout the day. Only issue was that they had a water maintenance service going on when we arrived and they did not accommodate us with water for the night. So we started a bit grumpy but after our whole stay, we liked the place.

Do not use the valet parking at this hotel unless you want to be severely overcharged and have a damaged car returned to you. Although the hotel does cover themselves with the signs stating that they are not responsible for damage or theft, there is clearly a reason for this. We received our car back from an overnight stay ($42.48... More

Over the years I've traveled quite a bit for business and pleasure. I've stayed at places that had higher reviews and ratings than the Washington Fairfield Inn. However, I've never received better service than I received during my three day stay at the Fairfield Inn and Suites Downtown Washington. From check-in to checkout out, everything was perfect.
