“Beautiful rooms and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Felisha at front desk was so accommodating and friendly. The room was clean with great bed. Location in Chinatown. Was treated better here than at the j.w Marriott in d.c where the staff was condescending and rude! Stay here! Great price too and included breakfast and Free wifi!

Took the family sightseeing in DC for the weekend and needed a place to crash. What we found was this well maintained, well appointed gem within walking distance of the mall, museums, monuments. Great restaurants in the neighborhood. Staff could not have been nicer and the free breakfast each morning was icing on the cake.

Room Tip: Try Matchbox for great burgers and beer. Right down the street.

I have stayed at this chain before in other cities, but this one in the heart of China town Washington D.C. was most impressive! Beautiful appointed rooms, with great thread count sheets! The room was spotless, and looked as if I were the first to have ever stayed in it! ! A great breakfast every morning with a large selection even for someone on a gluten free diet! Great price per night, and a very helpful and friendly staff!!! I truly would recommend this hotel for business and pleasure! The location too is a short distance to the Mall and the metro is just a block or two from the front door!

Stayed over this weekend and I had a great time.Washington DC is a beautiful city an the hotel is located walking distance to all the major attractions. The hotels looked brand new. My husband and I loved the community table in the breakfast room. Rooms were big. Staff was nice and pleasant. Compliments! We will be back again.

I travel quite a bit for business so I usually don't even bother reviewing business hotels but I have to comment on this property. I only stayed one night but I was quite impressed.

Room was a good size, newly renovated, and the front desk and valet car people were more than helpful. As for locations, pretty darn good as it's by the Verizon center, the Metro, Chinatown, etc. I had a sponsored marketing event about 8 blocks away so it worked out perfect.

Generally I stay in SPG properties (Sheraton, W, Westin, Aloft, etc) and while in DC I try to stay near Dupont Circle just cause there are many spots for a business traveler to walk to for a bite or glass of wine. I chose this property because I only needed one more stay to put me into SILVER status so I gambled. Let me tell you the gamble paid off.

There is an onsite Bar / Restaurant call the Irish Times. As an Irish American, I must say it's pretty authentic and the food wasn't half bad either. I don't know if I would hit it up if I wasn't staying at the hotel but it's great for onsite.

I totally forgot about breakfast the next morning and went I got to the lobby it was a great surprise. I made a cup of tea, grabbed a bannana, and a granola bar before I headed off to meetings in Baltimore. Perfect!

Bottom line - If you can get a good price on this hotel (I paid $150.00 I think) you can't go wrong. Otherwise try any Kimpton property in DC.

Room Tip: High Floor might get you a decent view.

Very close to the gallery place metro stop, as well as an abundance of food places, this is great spot for evening and night activities. The Irish pub and grill, connected to hotel, has good food, and lots of draught selections.

There are some problems with the Fairfield that cannot be easily fixed. As Other TripAdvisor reviewers have indicated, the rooms are small. The closet in the room I stayed in for six nights could not fit the width of a coat hanger because it is too shallow. When you're staying one night, it may be no big deal. When trying to keep clothes from wrinkling, it is cramped. Next, bring a white noise machine if you must stay at the Fairfield. Constant Noise from street (still loud on the tenth floor) and from adjacent rooms (even with towels put near gap below door).

The size of the bathrooms is compact. Fine for an average size American, traveling solo. Not so good if duet or more.

The FF staff are friendly, and there is a limited breakfast each morning.

If you're seeking a great breakfast place, go to the corner bakery next door. Their food and coffee are excellent.

The room was clean but the linens are getting old and need replacement . Breakfast was terrible there were no breads although I could see a toaster.. Wonder what that did there.. No omelettes. Hardly any choice.
