Not blaming the hotel at all. The hotel looks gorgeous and I would stay there. But please keep an eye out for my classmate. His dog was found as a stray about a month later and is in a shelter. It was a white pit mix.

Grass location great service. Make you feel like a welcome guest. Upgraded my room. Great gym. No complaints. I had a smooth check in and check out. Lovely atrium garden. Close to the subway and walking distance to great restaurants. Recommend it.

Stayed here between Christmas and NYE for a short getaway. Our room was clean, decently sized and on a high floor. We slept well on both nights. Shower had great water pressure but the toilet did not flush correctly and would run at random times. Our encounters with the front desk staff were polite, but we did not feel that anyone went out of their way to help us resolve issues or to make recommendations on places to eat or things to do/see in the area (e.g.- forgot my phone charger so was directed to buy one at the local CVS; asked for a recommendation for lunch outside of the hotel and was told there were two restaurants down the street but was not given directions or restaurant names). Discovered upon arrival that parking at this hotel is handled by a completely independent company. I had called ahead to inquire about the EV charging situation at the hotel and the front desk had transferred me to a parking attendant who provided incorrect information- which was frustrating. I ended up having to hunt for a supercharger after checking out. The online check out process was easy, but it took about an hour for the final invoice to show up in my email inbox. Our overall experience was okay but unremarkable. There are several similar hotels immediately adjacent to this one, so I may try one of those next time. Read less

Fairmont Washington continues to be my first choice in DC based on the amenities, customer service and the location near Georgetown. Regrettably COVID restrictions limited services such as access Fairmont Gold and late-night bar and room service. Hopefully, normal services will resume once the current COVID surge subsides.

We only stayed one night, but would have loved to say longer. Our room was excellent, well-decorated, clean, and quiet. Service at check-in and departure was efficient and professional. A beautifully appointed and well-managed hotel.
