Image of the Tripadvisor rating Fairmont won't refund money for rooms booked during Georgetown's INDEFINITELY POSTPONED graduation ceremony

I am a Fairmont Gold member and have spent thousands of dollars at this hotel over the last four years that my daughter has been a student at Georgetown. I have recommended this hotel to colleagues and fellow parents. When I booked the room for graduation ceremonies, all rooms were NONREFUNDABLE, given that people were booking for this event. Now that graduation has been postponed INDEFINITELY, I attempted to cancel and get my money back. A very smug hotel manager refused and attempted to placate me with the opportunity to use my "deposit" (the full room rate for five nights, over $2000) any time before the end of the year. Not knowing if/when graduation will be rescheduled, or if travel anywhere in the continental US will be advised, this is not an acceptable solution. Especially given the fact that I have immunocompromised people in my family and my daughter will no longer be living in DC as a graduating senior. I am infuriated and will no longer patronize this brand. Read less

For the price it was a very elegant hotel. Gym, pool, ballrooms, bar, lounge area. It was a nice little splurge for our family and we absolutely enjoyed it. Great view!! Mini bar in room and food service.

We stayed across the street and stopped by the Fairmont Hotel for a couple of drinks before we went to do touristy things. We sat at the bar and enjoyed both the beautiful setting and the great drinks. Our bartender KC was friendly and helpful. Beautifully prepared cocktails as you would expect from a establishment like Fairmont. KC knew this city really well and gave us tips on places to visit and bar to hit up later. This saved us lot of time. Thank you KC, next time we'll stay at the Fairmont. Read less

The staff were overly friendly and helpful. The lobby is pretty over the top. The elevators were quick. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. The shower pressure was very strong and the fabric shower curtain was billowy. And no good place to hang your towel to dry. The bed was too firm for me and the pillows too flat. Not sure what… Read more
