The hotel is amazing, and the food is terrific. The juniper staff is very kind and the lobby lounge staff is absolutely wonderful. The courtyard is also really nice to be in with a gin tonic. And the extra menu there is also very, very good. As well as the bartenders who really who what they are selling + provide excellent service. The young tall restaurant manager who was there everyday was very good and on top of the staff and the restaurant. Had an amazing conversation with him and a bartender and we kept it informal what I personally really like. The good thing that I saw was that he was only informal with the guest where he could be informal be. They are amazing in reading guests and what they desire. Kuddos for the whole team. The room was spacious and really clean. If I needed something like toothpaste, I got it really quick. I come here every now and then and I am not please by one front desk employee to say the least (tall guy with ginger hair). He is just rude to say the least. Made a mistake with putting my card on the card machine instead of in it. And he was really rude and told me on a rude way to put it in the machine as he said. When we ask him for questions he’s uninterested and basically wants us to leave as soon as possible. Even when there is no one. I Have no other words for this, but when I am paying $500+ a night I don’t want to deal with a rude, not interested person who is very mean. I expect better from Fairmont, way better…….. But the thing that annoys me the most is the following: I overheared a conversation of him to his female coworker that he doesn’t want to be here, and wants to leave and go upstairs or something like that. That annoyed me the most, that he was that uninterested! We’ll come back, but expect better service from the desk! For the rest is this hotel + the staff awesome and feels like home! Read less

We very much enjoyed our stay. We booked two rooms which they put together for interconnection which was appreciated. The place is beautiful and clean and smells amazing. Weird to say, but they actually have a feature scent that is very subtle yet very pleasant in the lobby. I honestly can't imagine I'd stay anywhere else if in DC. The "only"… Read more
We very much enjoyed our stay. We booked two rooms which they put together for interconnection which was appreciated. The place is beautiful and clean and smells amazing. Weird to say, but they actually have a feature scent that is very subtle yet very pleasant in the lobby. I honestly can't imagine I'd stay anywhere else if in DC. The "only" knock is after dinner, we came into the lobby and had a few questions for the gentleman behind the desk. After waiting for him to finish a call, he seemed a bit frazzled/impatient at our questions. He smiled and answered them but appeared rushed - no one else was there so it was just us, but we quickly realized he didn't have the time so we just went up to our room. He wasn't rude though. All that said - excellent stay and exactly the type of hotel I want. Read less

Excellent location and nice big room, although not a suite. One point though, there should be an automatic system to provide bottles of water to the rooms.

We need to ask for water to the reception during our stay. Breakfast was surprisingly very pleasant. The location is nice, facing an indoor garden and the choice of items and taste were excellent. The only drawback was the croissants. It should be more properly warmed to maintain its crustiness. Read less

I had a great stay in a very comfortable room, comfortable bed and great linens. A wonderful shower also made mornings lovely and the gym is fantastic. I would highly recommend the Fairmont for any business traveler or families in the area. The only thing that would’ve been better what is a coffee bar downstairs and more accessible water
