Full disclosure- I am a President's Club member and so enjoy Fairmont owned properties because of their reliability, accountability, responsiveness to my needs, and good restaurants/food service. I am never disappointed when I stay in a Fairmont property and if there is one in the destination to which I am bound I will seek it out for my stay. Our family visited Washington for four days prior to Christmas and what a great time it was to visit this wonderful city. The hotel is centrally located in Georgetown, and we could walk to most places or grab the metro (another great feature of this city). The only drawback was that their pool facility was closed when we visited but we were able to use the Four Seasons facilities which were excellent. The concierge services are excellent with knowledgeable and helpful individuals at all times. Because it was a quiet time, the hotel administration allowed us to upgrade to a full suite with two bedrooms and a connecting living room which made the stay for our family of five truly luxurious and utterly enjoyable. The lounge area with bar is a lovely place to have a drink (try their signature honey based mixed drinks- their own roof-top honey!) and little snacks. It was a very safe and secure location for our family and I would stay here again.
