Beautiful classic look with and excellent location in the heart of Georgetown. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed but the real treat is the service. They anticipate your needs at the Fairmont. You pay for the luxury but it is worth it.

Stayed at the Fairmont for a business trip. From the moment I checked in they made it a point to call me by my name, from front desk to room service. Their was construction going on at Hotel, but it was not a problem....no noise, no inconvenience. Another plus, it is within a few miles of DCA airport (Reagan) and... More

I stayed at the Fairmont for 5 nights with my two children for a mini city vacation. It is in a perfect location in order for one to view all of the major attractions that DC has to offer. One can even walk as we did. The staff was great as was the room. This is truly a family friendly... More

This hotel had all the amenities I needed to have a good stay. It is close to a Metro as well as restaurants. The facade was undergoing updating, so it was not the most sightly, but the service was great!

The hotel is quite pleasant. The rooms are nicely furnished as well as being quite large. The location of the hotel is only about 5 minutes to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station and only about 10-15 minute to the Potomac and its waterfront restaurants. If you have a car the parking fees are quite high so beware. In addition, don't... More

We stayed here in June, at the end of a couple of weeks touring in Virginia. Everything about this hotel we found to be fabulous - the location - which is near to Foggy Bottom metro (handy for accessing the city) and walking distance to all the bars and restaurants of Georgetown. the rooms - spacious and very well equipped....

Beautiful hotel, lovely room but poor service. And the worst part is the renovation means that we got woken up at 830 AM by banging outside our room that continued until 6PM. We didn't know in advance. You do. Stay elsewhere.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a conference group for 4 nights. Arrived very, very late with group, ordered the best & quickest room service ever - 20 mins. Beautiful gracious hotel in a beautiful gracious city. In a great location, lovely to wander around the neighbourhood. Short walk into Georgetown, beautiful old homes, great shopping and very...

The high quality standards of any great Fairmont can always be counted on. Professional and friendly service, deluxe rooms and the food is simply wonderful. Take a few moments and enjoy a beverage in the courtyard at night where the lights are twinkling in this romantic oasis within a city hotel. Simply delightful!

All credit to Fairmont and consistency as the Washington staff represented the brand very well. All staff were attentive, cooperative and courteous. We stayed 3 days and did not want to leave. The lounge entertainment was excellent and an opportunity to try the famous hotel "beetini" a martini made with honey from hives off the hotel roof. The restaurant food... More
