We have found this to be our favorite DC hotel from years of visiting, but it has really outdone itself after the renovation and COVID protocols. Superb location, interior design, and service. The whole operation equals or surpasses the other 5 stars in DC, which are two or even three times the price. Thank you to the staff, who do Fairmont… Read more

My husband and I visited the Fairmont in DC this week and we were truly blown away by everything. It began with our amazing welcome to the hotel by the front desk staff and their thorough explanation of their COVID safety policy. It made me very happy to know that my room had not been occupied for two days before our visit. While we were there, we took advantage of the in room and lobby dining. The food was amazing as well as the service from both sets of staff. The cherry on top was from Adam. He did an amazing job making my husband and I feel so welcome at the Fairmont as well as went the extra mile to make sure my husband and I were well taken care of. Side note, I’m four months pregnant and he made sure that I all the food ordered was safe for me or changed something to make sure I could eat. Thank you Adam and staff for the amazing service! My husband and I will definitely be visiting not only the Fairmont in DC but all Fairmonts. Read less

I really like this Fairmont...I've stayed here twice. The location is super convenient as it's walking distance from the heart of Georgetown in one direction...and walking distance from Dupont Circle in the other.

I really like this Fairmont...I've stayed here twice. The location is super convenient as it's walking distance from the heart of Georgetown in one direction...and walking distance from Dupont Circle in the other. The lobby is extremely classy, and the outdoor patio area is exquisite, particularly during this cherry blossom season. Drink options at the bar are really solid, and the bartender is pretty flexible as well. The food when ordering room service can be pricy, but I really enjoyed some of the items (particularly the egg white omelet, the smoothie, and the chocolate torsade). Lastly, the fitness center is quite a sight...with many rooms/machines/studios to cater to just about anyone (though some of the weight machines needed a little repair). All in all, it's an excellent experience. Read less
