“Excellent location & service”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed for 8 nights in June. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city. The location is great--just a few short blocks to the Metro stop as well as a Circulator bus stop, and even a pretty easy walk to the Mall and White House area. The breakfast was better than expected. Yes, it gets busy, but that's to be expected, especially on the weekends. The room was very clean, and a good size for 4 of us. The attached restaurant/bar is pretty good--it's nice to relax on the patio with a drink after a long day of sightseeing.
Tip: though refrigerators are not standard in the room, they do have them. Just ask at the front desk, or, even better, when booking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the "church side" of the hotel. Otherwise you may be facing a dark alley...

I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Washington, D.C. The location was about 2 blocks from a Metro stop, or a few block further on were the Smithsonian Museums and the Mall. The Verizon Arena was also nearby and many great restaurants within walking distance. The hotel itself was very clean, quiet, and the staff more than helpful. One night it was raining rather hard as we walked back to the hotel, and as we stepped into the lobby, there was a staff member handing out dry towels. The breakfast items were plentiful and hot, and the Irish pub next door also had a wonderful menu. The only complaint I can come up with was the bed was harder than I prefer, but that's just me. There were 4 of us staying in a room with 2 Queen size beds, and we all had plenty of room for our suitcases and ourselves.

Would highly recommend this hotel just on the fact that it was the cleanest hotel room that I can remember ever staying at. I didn't really know what to think when we first arrived as the front desk as the reception area is small, but I soon realized why as they cut the front desk area down to make more room for seating for breakfast. All the rooms were currently updated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was a huge bonus. The location was perfect, as it gave one a little of everything. I enjoyed the diversity of Chinatown and seeing a different side of life, but if you walked a block the other way, towards the Verizon Center, it was like you weren't in the same neighborhood. Likewise, the location was close enough to the major Smithsonian museums and the Mall. The metro is just a block away for further destinations of interest. There was a diverse selection of restaurants in the area. Our favorite being Carmine's which was about two blocks away. It was an Italian experience that my kids are still talking about.

1 king w/pullout sofa, quality décor! 10th floor. Thick walls between rooms, modern wall thermostats worked excellent, quiet. bathroom was spotless. Short walk to Chinatown metro stop! And even without metro, you can walk to Smithsonian (would be too far for small children). There is an italian restaurant attached to hotel. Downsides: Had to line up just to get to plates for the breakfast buffet despite getting down at 8:50am. Breakfast ends 9:30 on weekends. Very small area to get items for breakfast. Not enough seating so had to line up again for elevator to take family of four's breakfasts up to room to eat. Very inconvenient. I think they could have done much better with that, knowing it was a busy 4th weekend. You could hardly get out of elevator because of the breakfast line! They need to think of different buffet layout. No direct parking. No parking was available just to check in, had to circle the block twice until a parking spot available. There is a $40+/per night for valet parking -offsite. So we found a clean well lit garage around the corner and parked ourselves for less. Other point to think about, no minifridge or microwave in room.

Stayed at the Fairfield Inn in DC on business. The rooms were clean, a little small but with excellent beds. Lots of plugs for devices. The staff were friendly . The location was convenient. The breakfast was fair. Overall a good value in an expensive city. A good choice for those looking for value.

We have stayed at this location before. Cannot beat the proximity to the Metro, good food, and some of the attractions most people want to see in DC. I will say, this is not a quiet area so if you or someone with you is a light sleeper, beware. There were many many sirens going by and we were facing the alley. You hear neighbors and passersby in the hallway. And I felt like the A/C kicked on (loudly) every time I was almost asleep. But it is not that big a deal honestly. The staff was very very friendly from the front desk to the concierge to the bellboy (is that the right word anymore?) to the cleaning staff. We would absolutely stay again.

Our vacation stay was for 3 nights (June 27th -30th). Room was clean and adequate in size. Hotel is in Chinatown near the Metro and numerous restaurants. We were able to walk to most places of interest such as White House, Spy Museum, Air and Space Museum etc. The hotel staff is absolutely top notch. We can not remember a staff more accommodating and friendly than Fairfield's. Breakfast was plentiful and well cared for by Fairfield staff. Concierge was always available for advice or directions. We took 2 great tours recommended by the Concierge and would recommend "OnBoard Tours" to any visitor.
This would be our FIRST CHOICE for a D.C. hotel when we visit again.
