The experience of my partner and I at the Fairmont had many disappointments and issues but most significantly was the inability of the staff to manage a situation. For example one night of our stay I woke up covered in my bites, we subsequently found some on my partner, was initially handled well but despite the HUGE inconvenience to our vacation there was no apology. Upon check-out the manager showed no further remorse and I was forced to argue that given the issues, due to unknown bites, it not acceptable to still charge us for that night. The manager seemed lost and confused and left the front desk to let a colleague of his handle the situation with no warning. For the prices paid we expected better service and will avoid Fairmont going forward. Read less

I stay at many Fairmont hotels and this hotel ranks in my top three. Great staff support throughout the hotel, from check in to Gold floor. Good food options and very clean gold floor lounge. I was also upgraded to a suite and it was very appreciated! Look forward to returning in the future.

Very nice lobby bar with a great open feel. Great for business trips. And there are plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. Also, one a nice day it’s an easy walk to M Street and the heart Of Georgetown where there’s always plenty to do, with including great shopping at the Georgetown Mall just a few blocks away.

In a world where the line between fancy and clownish is often blurred, the Fairmont Washington D.C. hotel is tastefully opulent The staff was fabulous - polite, attentive, amazingly helpful. The room was sumptuous and quiet with all the amenities one could need. The complimentary breakfast was fit for royalty. Why stay anywhere else?

We spent four nights here at the end of our holiday. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff members we encountered were all very nice, friendly and helpful. The staff at breakfast were especially nice and we got the feeling that when they asked how we had enjoyed the previous day's sightseeing they were genuinely interested. We had breakfast in the hotel on all but one day, sampling both the buffet breakfast and the a la carte. We are both vegetarian and still found a reasonable choice of things to eat. Coffee was continuously topped up. We did not find the evening menu so accommodating but we did have something from the bar menu one evening. Most evenings we had a drink in the bar and we loved the way the courtyard was lit up. Nibbles were always brought with the drinks. This hotel isn't cheap, especially when the tax and obligatory tips are added to the bill. Having said that, Washington itself isn't cheap and I would imagine the prices are on a par with similar hotels in London. We loved Washington and hope to return. If we do we'll be happy to stay at the Fairmont again. Read less
