class place.

Pros: The location is an easy walk to most locations. Ten minutes to the subway at DuPont or Foggy bottom. Can be a hike with luggage if easily lost.
Cons: Not sure how to improve, but the "honor system" doesn't always seem to be honored
Location: Lots of interesting restaurants
Easy check in even with the late arrival. Room was excellent, Gold level staff really took care of us. Check out was as easy as the check in. From the door man to the cleaning personnel al very cheerful, friendly and helpful.

Excellent experience!

Excellent experience staying at the Fairmont Washington. The room was very clean and very spacey. The hotel staff are quite courteous and friendly and very helpful. The only downside is that while the ac works well in the room the air flow doesn't seem to reach the area of the bed and it gets a little warm. We would definitely stay at tge Fairmont Washington again. Excellent location!

Great stay

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, expensive parking
My stay at the fairmont was so wonderful it makes me want to come back for little weekend getaways! The hotel was so beautiful in the lobby and has great seating areas where the staff comes up to you and you can order drinks and appetizers. Also had a pianist who comes in and plays the piano and that makes the atmosphere so comfortable. I rooms were clean and cozy. I loved this hotel and would come back

Great location, Wonderful experience

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
We stayed on the Gold Floor, which I would definitely recommend!! Personalized service, special attention, and fondue. This hotel was centrally located near town and in walking distance to shops/restaurants in Georgetown. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were modern and clean. The only downside was our stay was too short!

Beautiful hotel

This hotel was absolutely exquisite. The staff were very attentive and helpful, polite at every turn. The hotel is a short walk (about 5 -6 blocks) to Georgetown, where there are lots of different restaurants and night life. Filomenas is a fabulous Italian restaurant, frequented by celebrities and politicians, as well as regular people like myself and the midwestern couple with their son at the next table. Not to be missed!! Metro travel is a bit confusing when you're used to the NYC subways, but it was okay once we learned how to buy tickets from the machine. Attendents were friendly, stations clean and new. We saw no evidence of any crime anywhere we went. The Fairmont is in a very nice area between George Washington University School of Medicine and Georgetown University. Lots of college kids out & about, having a good time. Haloween in Georgetown is not to be missed!!!

Fairmont Hotel

The hotel is very plush, and the rooms are great. Large bathroom, robe, very sizable room. Negative-you have to pay for mediocre speed internet. Great location in Washington, within easy walking of the Lincoln Memorial, and Georgetown. Starbucks is across the street!

Unsurpassed Service

My wife and I stopped here to break up our trip from Columbus to Williamsburg for my sister's wedding. It's been a long time either of us have been so impressed by a hotel - or travels have left us jaded and setting standards perhaps a bit too high, but the Fairmont met them all. From pulling up Wednesday afternoon to driving off Thursday morning, the service was impeccable. Everyone on the staff was well-trained, efficient, friendly and courteous. Not once was anyone condescending, rude, or distant. The room was beautiful (warm earth tones with asian accents) and spotless. We unfortunately had no chance to use our free access to the health club, or to try out their new restaurant, but can hopefully try them out on our next visit to DC, as the Fairmont will definitely be our first choice.
