I stay in Fairfields a lot, and chose this one based on all the great reviews and mapping the area. While it was fine, it was not a top experience. Positives: clean room, fast elevator, nice staff, super close to metro. Negatives: Verizon center crowds when there is an event there, which happened to be all 4 nights we were in town. Not just a crowded hotel, but all the sidewalks and restaurants nearby. Breakfast was ridiculous, get there when it starts (7am on wkends, 6:30 wkdays) or forget it. Huge lines, no tables, the staff lady said she cant get those powdered eggs out fast enough! A bit more of a walk than expected to sites. In hindsight, I would pay the extra and stay at the JW Marriott. There's so much walking to do in DC that every block adds a lot (and we are active adults). I was also suprised there was no fridge or microwave in the room, that was disappointing though I've read now that maybe you can specially request that? Seems odd and not like most.
Bottom line, for a budget trip or Verizon center event, it's a great place. Otherwise, consider other options.
