“Good hotel, close to Georgetown”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

One of the best things with this hotel is its location. I was in DC to explore the sights, and in particular Georgetown architecture. This hotel is 10 min walk from there. The rooms are decent, the staff friendly, and the in-room dining quite good.

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

I love staying at my Fairmonts... the pillows and beds are always perfect.
The staff is wonderful.. All front desk staff is professional and accommodating.
Rob the concierge is a wealth of knowledge. Housekeeping does a great job.
Jahad the bartender is the best! and all the staff at Juniper especially Edgar.
I can't wait to go back. The garden within the hotel courtyard is sooo peacefull. A welcome respite from the craziness of the city...
I would like complimentary coffee in the lounge area in the morning... where I can relax and read and not bother anyone for a cup.

Room Tip: ask for courtyard view..

Hotel grounds are truely beautiful. Staff is wonderful. Perfect location for exploring DC while staying in a safe and comfortable place. It is not an inexpensive hotel, but honestly worth every penny. Pianist in the loby area was special. Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. Night manager somehow knew it was our anniversary and sent us chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. We will be back.

The hotel was nice and clean. I was there for a conference, and had a great time. I had some issues with my online group booking but the front desk fixed the issue immediately. I was very satisfied. There were many nice restaurant within walking distance, close to the train, and not too far from the White House. A little pricey for my budget, but if I’m in the area I would consider staying there again.

My wife and I visited friends in DC and opted to stay at the Fairmont although it was rumored to be quite expensive. It is expensive but worth every cent. The front desk staff couldn't do enough for you and the rooms were well appointed and spacious. The restaurant was fine and after our second dinner there, the manager sent us thanks and a box of chocolates. The amenities were very good with a spacious fridge, micro and keurig coffee maker. The rooms were kept spotless and the parking valet was always quick in retrieving our car. All in all this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.
ps: the lobby bar was very nice and they do have a happy hour.

On Thursday, May 22nd I had the delightful pleasure of staying at the Fairmont Washington, DC. Upon check in I mentioned that I was a President's Club member and the clerk had a difficult time finding me in the system. I told her that it was only for one night and not to worry. She insisted on searching and my name was found under my husband's name. I was impressed that she did not get frazzled and pursued. Everyone in the hotel from the doorman to the restaurant staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The hotel is beautifully appointed with careful thought has gone into every little detail. Breakfast is not my favorite meal but I would recommend that guests build in time to eat in the hotel restaurant. The presentation was top notch and the food was excellent. I have never had an egg white omelet that tasted so good, along with the seasonally ripe fruit and mini bagels served hot and toasted perfectly. I can not stand when you pay top dollar for fresh fruit and it is not ripe. The fruit was on point. The extra bonus is the very lovely courtyard in the hotel that was a pleasant place to relax with my family. If you are going to spend time in DC for business or sightseeing, I would recommend this wonderful urban oasis!

Had a special trip for my 40th around a few big American cities. The Fairmont truly started it in style, the gorgeous corner room (an upgrade), birthday treats and staff wishing me a happy birthday as I walked by. All the staff were so helpful, especially the concierge and reception desk. Thank you so much for making my stay so special.
