Booked our room using points. This is a cat 4 hotel, and the best buy of any of the majors in the area. You'd have to go to DCA to do better. Good location. Normal sized hotel room, with a slightly larger than normal bathroom. Nicely decorated. Good pillows. 2 free computers in the lobby breakfast area. This is a... More

We took an Amtrak from Orlando, FL to D.C. and arrived at 8 a.m. into Union Station. It was a pleasant15-minute walk to the Fairfield which we welcomed after an 18-hour train ride. We were able to check in early at 9 a.m. It was a bright corner room, well appointed and very clean. Breakfast was over-the-top and personnel keep... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days in April and it was wonderful! Great location to the mall, Chinatown Metro only two blocks away, another Metro at Union Station just a few blocks away, The Circulator bus stop only a few blocks away as well. Our room looked like it has recently been renovated, very clean and comfortable. The... More

Was down in DC last weekend. Brought friends who were visiting the states. Due to forgetting how busy DC is at this time of year it was a task finding hotel accommodations. Managed to get rooms at the Fairfield Inn & Suites - a Marriot hotel. The hotel location was nice, right in Chinatown area. We could walk to all... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in March and had a great experience. The location is accessible to the metro and much of the downtown area, so we ended up walking most places. The daily breakfast definitely met our needs and was good. We had a room with 2 queen beds and we traveled with 2 teenagers, so... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with the family during our visit in Washington DC. The hotel was clean and close to all attractions. Morning breakfast at the hotel was a great plus. The only negatives were the nightly early morning noise from the garbage trucks in the alleyway and/or street. Guess you have to expect some of that if you... More

Excellent location for sightseeing. Needed to take a cab to further sights such as Lincoln Memorial, but would then work our way back toward the hotel throughout the day. McDonalds nearby for younger kids, but we liked Carmines on 7th street. Great deal monday thru friday for lunch - but beware on weekends you have to order the dinner portion... More

We stayed here over one weekend in April. The hotel is clean and has a very good location. It is very close to Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro station and within 15 minutes walking from the National Mall. It has very good and reasonably priced restaurants close by. Free wifi internet is included in the price. We thought the nightly valet parking... More

We've never stayed in Washington before and were a little nervous. This hotel was just a few turns off of Interstate 50 - very easy to get to. There are spaces on the street to park your card for the Valet drivers. When we got to the hotel - around 11:30 - they actually had a room ready and allowed... More
