Seasonal mid-Atlantic specialities delight in the Juniper Restaurant or a market fresh brunch will satisfy and sustain you for a day of sightseeting. The health club is one of the city's largest and best.

Shockingly bad service! I travel with my husband and 4 kids, including 1 child with special needs and I always require adjoining rooms because of this. If a hotel won't guaranty adjoining rooms, I book elsewhere. The Fairmont reservation agent I spoke to over a month ago confirmed with the hotel front desk that we would be guaranteed an ambassador suite and an adjoining double for 4 nights over Easter. I confirmed via phone with the front desk before our arrival. At check-in we were told by Kelli, a manager, that adjoining rooms were "only requested and not guaranteed" and they did not have the rooms we had booked. After some efforts, they downgraded us to a corner suite with an adjoining room. It was very tight, but we decided to deal with it since it was Easter weekend and we didn't have many other options. The room on the corner was unbelievably loud due to traffic noise, I didn't sleep at all. I called down to the front desk to say we couldn't stay in that room. They didn't offer me any other options, but were fine with me checking out. I was shocked! Ian at the front desk was apologetic, and generously comped the double room, but we were now without a place to stay for the rest of the weekend. After a day of sight-seeing and frantically calling other hotels, we went back to the Fairmont to retrieve our luggage. My husband asked the front desk if they had ANY adjoining rooms available because we were desperate at that point. They said they did have 2 adjoining king rooms and could add cots to fit all of us, but because of the low availability, the rooms would cost DOUBLE what we had paid the night before. It was 5pm and the rooms were empty. Thankfully, we were able to find last minute accommodations at the Watergate and spent the rest of our weekend there. I travel constantly for work and with my family and I will never stay at a Fairmont again. The whole experience really put a damper on our Easter weekend. Read less

It is ridiculous that in the year 2024 they charge 15usd for wifi, unless you are a member of the loyalty program. Parking is 60usd when there is a parking lot a block away for literally half the price. Hotel is nice but completely overpriced. Not recommended

The accommodations were beautiful ...the staff were very service-oriented....the bar was great...the only complaint is that the fitness center doesn't open until 8 on the weekends!! Beautiful central location in Foggy Bottom, access to fabulous restaurants, the hotel is super- appointed. The suite was incredible! Thank you!

I’ve stayed here several times and always have a nice experience. Rooms are comfy and clean, bath products smell amazing and they gave robes and good internet. There’s an onsite gym and restaurant and bar. And the hotel has a small conference center.
