Third time in DC with family during spring break and decided to stay in a different location besides downtown. Glad we did. Fairmount's location feels more like a neighborhood with a college vibe. Short walk to fantastic high end shopping and great resturants. Extremely friendly and warm service from the moment you pull up and the day you leave. Hotel's... More

Excellent hotel in prime location. Close to quaint Georgetown and walking distance to all the main sights. Wonderful bed and bedding and first class toiletries. Staff all attentive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Only minus is daily charge for Internet which is waived if you join loyalty scheme. I Think Internet should be offered free to all guests... More

One of the better hotels I've stayed at...a true upper crust place. Yada, yada. But a couple of things temper my enthusiasm. First off, having never been to DC with no idea where the best place to stay would be, I was hoping to find a place which was centrally located and close to a Metro. Picked this place largely...

The room itself was very clean and comfortable, with great water pressure and heat in the shower. I felt out of my league in the rest of the hotel: when they told me at checkin that breakfast buffet was until 10am, I assumed it was complimentary - far from it.

The hotel is modern and clean and well situated. We had the Fairmont Gold Package which was truly amazing. The package offered us a 5* plus service with our own Lounge and many other perks including the use of a private car and driver during rush hour which was very helpful. Our room was a really good size and offered... More

We had a pleasant Sunday night stay here in April. The staff was very pleasant and our room was lovely. A bit removed from eating choices but Foggy Bottom metro is a 10 minute walk away. Whole Foods is near the metro and we had a quick lunch in their café. The DC Circulator stops right out front as well... More

The Fairmont Washinton DC is a beautiful property. We were friendly welcomed by the Gold Floor Team on the 9th floor. Thank you Caitlin, our Gold Floor manager, for your good care, and also for your open-minded attitude during our conversations. The staff on the Gold Floor were all very friendly.

Stayed her 3 night with a family of 5 with two connecting rooms. Got it recommended by friends and Fairmont delivered above expectations. Already when we booked by phone we were met by an exeptional service attitude - followed by a smiling and welcoming atmosphere from we arrived until we checked out. The rooms are nice, but not very spacious.... More

Three night stay for business. Hotel absolutely full, breakfast tables needed to be reserved after 7.30, but very good choice, and public spaces never crowded. Pleasant piano bar. rooms very spacious, comfortable and quiet. Front desk very service oriented, restaurant staff probably too busy to be good.
