We stayed at the Fairmont Washington DC recently. We had a wonderful experience! The staff couldn't have been nicer and so helpful in planning our day and getting us reservations for our preferred restaurants. It's a beautiful hotel and we love the comfortable beds and choice of pillows. We took a short taxi ride to museums and monuments and walked to dinner and shopping, great location. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed on the Gold Floor, costs a little more but so worth it. The free breakfast and evening ap...

Stayed here twice, in March 2014 and in May 2013. Preferred it to other hotels nearby (Westin, Melrose). Good location, walking distance to Georgetown and Dupont Circle and $10 cab ride to downtown. Very professional staff. Rooms are a reasonable size for a couple or a single traveller, with comfortable beds and good-quality linens, though starting to look a little tired. Good-quality toiletries provided too. You have to call and ask for slippers or extra blankets to be brought up, but this is done promptly. It is worth joining the "Fairmont President's Club" loyalty programme to get free wi-fi in the room and access to the sauna, pool and gym classes (I took a yoga class early one morning and it was good). The only downside is the restaurant - not only is it very overpriced, but the quality of the food was very disappointing both times we ate there.

I stayed here for a conference for 3 days. Cassia was very accommodating to a personal request. As a nursing mother, I often find it difficult to find a private location to take care of my infant's needs. Cassia made sure I had a private place to be able to feel comfortable. Sometimes I don't get this treatment at other locations which makes it very difficult for me to do something as simple as feed my child. I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!!! Your simple act of kindness made my days at the conference so much easier.

I am always glad to have a reason go to DC because I stay at the Fairmont. Everything about the Hotel is first class and the Lobby glass atrium is the nicest place to relax in a DC Hotel. Superb staff, great rooms although a bit dated and fabulous location. Juarad is among the best bartenders anywhere.

Room Tip: rooms on the west side are my favorite

I stayed here for college visits. The hotel had a great location and was beautiful. Such a great, elegant atmosphere. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds are very comfortable. I can't wait to go to DC and stay here again.

The entire hotel was lovely but staying on the Gold Floor made our trip extra special. The staff and lounge could not have been nicer. The room was very clean and the mattress was heaven. The food on the gold floor was very good but everyone working on the gold floor was amazing! Best Hotel we have stayed at in a while!

The hotel was awesome, from the rooms to the staff. Location was convenient Beds are more comfortable than any other hotel bed I have ever experienced. At first I thought the onsite restaurant prices were out of line until I sampled nearby establishments and found out EVERYTHING in DC, or at least that area (Georgetown) was the same. Concierge Eric in particular was incredibly wonderful. We will definitely return.
