“Great Shower Heads”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We were here for a wedding in August. The hotel was clean and the the staff was very friendly. The hotel is in the middle of Georgetown. The best part were the shower heads. Best shower I have had in years. I would recommend one night just for the shower. Worth the $250.

Were staying in the hotel now. This morning the construction noise started at 10 am in the room above us which is very annoying. Continuous Bang Bang .. I guess its a good time to explore the city but would have liked to enjoy my rest as we had a late night. Otherwise would have been 5 stars.

I want to find out the name of the mattress because it
was the best sleep I had in years. It was a bit of
a walk to the Museums but not far from the White House.
There are some nice restaurants and outside cafes.

Room Tip: We had an exterior room with no view but very nice

i recently stayed for one night at the Fairmont and found the hotel to be very good, with just one minor niggle.

The pros:
- Very good location and pretty much walking distance (a bit long) to all the major sights in DC.
- The rooms were very large and spacious and very well doen up with all modern amentiies.
- The bathrooms were large. Though the shower and tub area were the same, it was still adequate with some nice amenities,
- I ordered in room dining and the food was good and served on time.
- The check in / check out was swift with no hassle.
- The hotel has a nice lively lobby with a bar that was quite active and served some nice drinks.

The only one niggle faced was with housekeeping. The TV remote in the room didnt work and i finally got the same after making 2 calls and waiting for a good 45 minutes. This seemed a bit odd abd would have expected better prompt service.

Overall, its a good hotel and definitely recommended.

From the moment we arrived until checking out The Fairmont Washington was wonderful. It was clean and beds very comfortable. The service from the staff was outstanding. The piano playing in the Lobby was yet another plus. Would recommend without reservation.

The renovations being done did not bother us.

The Fairmont is conviniently located and a great hotel. You can't beat the location for it's proximity to Georgetown and all the major sites to see in D.C. The room is comfortable and clean. For the price paid, this is an excellent option when visiting D.C.

The Fairmont is located a short walk from Georgetown and close to Dupont, and lots of places to eat and shop. The hotel restaurants are excellent and I highly recommend trying the daily "shrub" on the breakfast menu - something different!
