Stayed here in August 2015. Very good hotel in DC. Short 5 minute or so walk from the Metro. Very comfortable and excellent air conditioning which is a real must for DC in the summer. The hotel was quiet late at night but busy in the day which gives it a nice feel. There are a number of restaurants near... More

Although this was actually almost 8 years ago, this hotel got everything right for our amazing wedding! The space was simply elegant, including an outdoor garden begging for photo opps. The staff was attentive to every detail, but didn't hover. And the meal....ih the meal!!! To this day, our wedding attendees talk about that fabulous surf and turf dinner. I... More

I stayed with my family of 5 for 5 nights. Overall, an excellent stay. We booked adjoining rooms and the extra space was worth the price given that we spent hours lounging in our room after spending most of the day at the various excellent Smithsonian museums. The entire staff was very professional and accommodating of any request. Specific pros:... More

I was in DC for a wedding and was given a choice of several hotels which were honoring the "wedding rate". I chose the Fairmont and am happy with my experience. In particular, the concierge services were excellent. I called and spoke to Kit before arriving and she was a big help in planning my arrival time and my stay.

Excellent, high class hotel, well-situated in a lovely area of Washington. Highly recommend. Superior work-out facilities. Walking distance to major attractions and restaurants. Valet parking is expensive and use of business center should be free.

I recently stayed at this hotel 26-28 August and had an experience that was turned into a positive experience from un unfortunate experience.

We usually stay at the Sofitel when we visit our,son in DC. Got a Fairmont deal and could not resist it. Other than the $45 Valet charge the rate was excellent and a $50 food and beverage credit made up for the parking fee. The room was large, clean and comfortable. After traveling for,weeks I can attest to the best... More

Very nice upscale hotel. Checking in took forever since there were only two desk clerks and they were two people in line. It was 9:00 pm so you would think it would not have ben busy or the concierge who was doing nothing could have assisted. Other than this, it is a very nice hotel and the owning clerk was... More

Every time I travel to DC, I stay at the Fairmont. The location is excellent. My meetings ending early and my flight departed late so I had time to explore and do a little shopping in the area. It was a very nice experience.
