The room was nice and the concierge & valet parking attendants were excellent!! The overnight parking is very expensive ($33 a day). The bathroom was not clean very well when we checked in. There was hair on the floor and the toilet was not very clean at all. We did not make a big deal out of it we decided... More

Fairfield Downtown was formerly a Red Roof Inn (which is helpful to know if you want your cab driver to know where to take you). This hotel was a pleasant surprise - affordable by D.C. standards, great location, helpful staff, fresh decor, very clean, nice fitness center and a great continental breakfast included. Our 2 Queen Bed room on the... More

We were allowed to check in early at 11:30am on Sunday. After driving for 8 hours this was a welcome surprise. The hotel itself is very nice. Looks like it has just been renovated in oriental theme. This hotel is in the middle of China Town so that would be fitting. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The lobby... More

Totally renovated. Brand new everything. We were so pleased with the room, the corridors, the lobby, etc. The decor is modern and bright. Please make sure to view new photos - many of the photos on this site are from before the renovation. Very well located to the Verizon Center, Chinatown, and all of downtown. A great value and quite... More

I stayed at The Fairfield Inn & Suites recently, and I have to say that my experience was fantastic. The decor (which I understand was recently updated) perfectly reflects the cultural flavor of the neighborhood. Everything sparkled, and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I can't speak to the value, as this stay was 'paid' for with Marriott points,... More

I am in DC about 20 times a year--so I've stayed in a lot of hotel properties. Suffice it to say, I would have never given the old property a second look when it was a Red Roof Inn. Now that it is a fresh, new Fairfield Inn--it's a terrific option. The fact that it is completely redone is a... More

Stayed here while visiting in DC because of the excellent location and good price. Included breakfast buffet had a very good variety and was well maintained. The entire hotel was recently refurbished. The room was somewhat smaller than most; we had two queen beds, desk and desk chair, and dresser, but there was no space for a side chair, and... More

I was really nervous when I booked a room here for a trip to DC with my daughter, but it turned out to be awesome. Since it is a new to Marriott hotel there were only bad reviews left from the old Red Roof days which really scared me, but when we arrived you couldn't ask for better service or... More

We chose this Hotel for its location and the fact that it had only been open for about a month after a complete renovation. The location in the chinatown section was a great choice for sight seeing. 1 block from the Verizon center where the Capitols play. About 5 blocks from Ford Theater. A Quiznos less then a half a...
