There's not one negative thing I can say about this hotel. Having stayed at Fairmont hotels in Quebec, I anticipated excellence. From the doorman to the front desk staff, wait staff, management, valet, housekeeping, you name it--service was exceptional and friendly. The suite we occupied on our most recent visit was superb. I was there for a meeting of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, so I can also report that the meeting rooms were well furnished and comfortable. The event we held in the ballroom was nothing short of spectacular. The food was excellent, and the waitstaff perfect. I also happen to love their Le Labo bath products--very luxurious. If visiting DC again, I would not hesitate to stay at the Fairmont in Georgetown. Excellent location and walking distance to the mall.

Room Tip: Join the President's Club for free--it gives you all kinds of perks!

Thank you very much Karen R! We appreciate your Amex-traveler-certified five-star review! “Gracious” and “elegant” are wonderful ways to describe our hotel. We like to call it “an urban oasis” in the heart of the nation’s capital.

As noted on a response to another reviewer, thank you very much for your participation in the Chaines des Rotisseurs meetings. Our team was incredibly excited to work with your organization. Our Culinary team is still walking on a food-lovers cooking for food-lovers cloud nine.

Your tip to join Fairmont President’s Club is a great one. A major perk is complimentary Internet access at Fairmont properties around the world. Another perk at our property is complimentary access to Balance Gym Foggy Bottom, one of the top-ranked gyms in DC.

Thank you again. We look forward to your next visit,

Adam Knight

My wife has run in the Marine Crps Marathon the past five years, and we have stayed at the Fairmount for four of them. The official race hotel the first year was the Hyatt Capitol Hill, which was hideous. The Fairmount has been terrific. Great service. Convenient Georgetown location. Restaurant is at least a B+ if not better and nearby restaurant options are huge. Rooms are modern, clean and spacious.

Room Tip: probably just a higher floor -- e.g. 5 and up would be good

Having stayed at other Fairmont hotels and resorts, my wife and I expected nothing short of perfection at the Georgetown Fairmont. Our suite on the tenth floor was spacious and luxurious. The staff was friendly and courteous without being stuffy. The food and wine organization that we belong to (The Chaine des Rotisseurs) was having it's annual meeting at the hotel. The gala dinner in the Fairmont's ballroom was a gourmet spectacular. Food, wine and service were all perfect. Despite spending most of our two days there in meetings, we were able to walk to the Lincoln Memorial and the WWII Memorial. It was a great way to get some exercise and see the monuments to our country's heroes.

I am glad I picked the Fairmont when picking a place for our group of 10 to stay. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Our rooms were very clean and the cleaning service made sure it was top-notch every day. The location was idea for anyone trying to see lots of the city. I received praise from everyone in the group for picking such a great place to stay. Thanks for making me look good!

Room Tip: We stayed on the courtyard side of the hotel and it was very quite. Can't comment on the street...

We spent 3 nights at this excellent hotel . We have stayed at many Fairmont hotels around the world and it is one of our favorite brands because of the outstanding staff and the consistently high standards but occasionally one rises above even these high standards and the Fairmont Washington DC is one of these . Congratulations to those responsible for management and staff training .
Everything about this hotel impressed us but the staff , without exception , were exceptional .
We enjoyed the restaurant very much because the Chef has a great philosophy about food and buys fresh , local and organic .

We highly recommend the Fairmont if visiting Washington DC we arrived at mid afternoon on the day that the Federal shutdown was lifted after driving from Virginia, to be greeted by very friendly helpful and cheery staff. Check in was smooth and easy,room was ready clean and very spacious. During our stay we used the hotel restaurant and were impressed with the quality of the food and service,the Sunday brunch is a must.
location of the hotel close to Georgetown make getting around very easy whether going into the city or walking in Georgetown.
All together a very enjoyable 4 days.
Special mention for Alex and Omar two great guys.
