It's hard to believe that it cost about $300 a night to stay at such a basic hotel. The Marriott brand has ensured some things are predictably good. The rooms are clean, the staff friendly, and you get a full hot breakfast with your room every morning. We chose to stay here because we wanted to be in Chinatown and... More

Great location. My second stay here. Hotel very clean. Very nice room. Service- Security and good breakfast everyday. Good value for a well located hotel in DC next to Gallery Place Metro walking distance to many attractions.

This hotel was perfectly fine and served our needs well for a 1-night stay to see a concert at the Verizon Center. This is a busy hotel (or at least it was on the Friday and Saturday we were there), so there was almost always a crowd in the lobby and breakfast seating can get tricky. Valet parking was also...

The Service is excellent. Check with Gene for places to go. Also enjoy the Bar next door or through the Lobby. I hope you like the Irish and Soccer. They also serve great bloody Mary's if you celebrated to much

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
