This is a perfect hotel for business and you cannot beat its location in DC. I am not sure I would select this hotel as a tourist as it's more oriented towards business travelers. Staff was friendly and it was a good stay.

This was one of the best experiences I have ever had in a hotel. WHO- the staff are incredible. Especially the front desk/room service sup LAURA ATTEWELL who went out of her way-ABOVE AND BEYOND- to assist me in numerous ways, when our trip didn't go as planned due to weather flying in, and my college age daughter was feeling...

I stayed in DC during a very cold weekend in February. The Fairmont's thoughtful staff and clean, comfortable room helped to make my stay very enjoyable. Their car service helped me fit some sightseeing into a business weekend when it was too cold and snowy to walk the few blocks to the Metro. While the street noise can get a... More

Excellent check in staff and we are given rooms on the gold floor with free wi fi. big beds, spacious rooms and great service throughout the stay from Kitt the... More

Absolute wonderful experience! Just returned from a four night stay. The staff at the hotel was fantastic. The room was beautifully furnished, with comfy beds, linens and pillows and overlooked a beautiful snow covered courtyard. The breakfast in the hotel restaurant was delicious as was our dinner in our room. Overall, just a great hotel with a good location. Will... More

So happy that our conference was at the Fairmont, because I knew it would be great. The fitness center and pool were excellent, as was the food, the bar, and concierge. I always look to save money on transportation, and it's an easy walk from the Metro--even in the slushy snow.

If you are looking for 5-star accommodation in Washington DC you can't go past the Fairmont for quality service, meals and facilities. Situated in M Street, the Fairmont is close to transport and within walking distance of historic Georgetown.

Back at the Fairmont DC, and once again it met or surpassed our expectations with friendly staff, excellent concierge, fine facilities at a very reasonable cost. A top notch place with a good location.

When pondering the number of stars to assign for our recent three-night stay, I could not think of a reason to give it less than five. The hotel is not perfect, but there was really nothing I could think of that they missed. Hence the five-out-of-five. First, the staff at the hotel is fantastic. From the doorman that greets you...

Exceptional well located DC hotel. Located in a peaceful residential area yet easily accessible to the city business areas and sites. The Staff are beyond excellent, courteous, professional and attentive. Juniper restaurant serves great breakfast and dinner.
