I cannot believe that in 2015, a 5-star hotel has Internet speed that is as slow as dial-up. I also cannot believe that many of the hotels staff would barely be able to speak English. Sadly, both of these are present at Washington's Fairmont. This is a superior facility in a great location with essentially non-functioning Internet. As a business... More

Spent 4 nights here in May 2015. Check in staff were helpful and friendly. The room was large and clean and well appointed. All staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. There is a courtyard garden area which we sat in for drinks and a light meal. You would not believe you were in a large city. The... More

We stayed 3 nights and I focus here on the amenities that I experienced that are not typical of other DC hotels. The $12 Beetini is a very tasty martini made from the honey made by the 1200 bees on the roof. The live piano player was quite talented. You must join the president's club (free) to take advantage of... More

About me: single, male, young professional, from San Diego About trip: Sun-Fri, traveling for work (govt/military). I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Fairmont! I chose to stay here: 60% for the property/location -- Fairmont is a quality brand with great service. Georgetown was great and DuPont Circle was another great neighborhood next door 40% for the gym -- if... More

This is a beautiful, old world hotel. The lobby and garden are comfortable and pleasant. The location is just a few blocks from the downtown area of Georgetown and the waterfront. We attended a family member's wedding here and found it to be a wonderful venue. In the winter, it might not be as desirable as it is a fair... More

This is a nice DC hotel, very close to Georgetown. Easy walk to Georgetown and not far from Lincoln Memorial and the Mall. The staff were the icing on the cake. All of the staff were so friendly and make me feel welcome. The room was very nice - but nothing spectacular.

The room was nothing special, but nice and clean as was the rest of the hotel. The best part of the experience was that it was attached to a small gym to which you had complimentary access to their equipment, pool,hot tub and even most classes.I really enjoyed that. Also easy walk to restaurants, White House, and my Georgetown clients.

Stayed at the Fairmont over Memorial Day weekend with my wife and two daughters, booked an extra large room with a pull out sofa. The property had the kind of ambience and high quality finishes that you expect from a Fairmont. The location was super-convenient--walkable to DuPont Circle, to the heart of Georgetown and to the Metro. The Foggy Bottom... More

We booked the Fairmont after a last minute decision to go to DC for the weekend. Since we only had 2 days to book a hotel, on Memorial Day Weekend, I figured options would be slim and expensive. I booked directly though Fairmont after seeing them so highly rated on TripAdvisor and at a reasonable price. Our experience was excellent.... More

I spent two nights at the hel in June 2014 on business. Superb hotel in a great many ways. Beautiful rooms, large and exquisitely comfortable beds and numerous facilities including room service and dry cleaning. A 1st class stay.
