"A fun girl trip"
One of the most comfortable beds I ever slept in! We liked being in Chinatown and also convenient to the train station and sights. Expensive parking, but we came on the train, so that didn't affect us. Very good and varied breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, dated hotel with maintenance issues"
This hotel is budget friendly for the area and comes with a nice continetnal breakfast. Most attractions are walkable; major conference centers Verizon and Washington are very close. The rooms are OK, looks like a very dated hotel dressed up all nice on the surface. There was mildew/mold embedded in the grout on the shower, and the water at the hotel […] tasted like mold. On the surface, the decorations are stylish and fit with the Chinatown feel, but it seems like there is some major grime lurking beneath. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"We had a fabulous stay."
When we arrived about an hour before check in we were immediately given our room. Our room was spotless and well decorated. Beds were comfortable & pillows were soft. Located in Chinatown close to everything 3 blocks from the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery & International Spy Museum 6 blocks from National Mall 1 block from the Gallery Place Metro Station. […] Security was good need a key card to take the elevator as well as entry into the lobby after 10 pm. Breakfast was okay it was filling & the staff was there to help you find things or take your tray. The only reason I gave the neighborhood rating a 4 is heavy foot traffic. We noticed most of the people walking looked very relaxed. Several times when outside smoking, people stopped & asked for a cigarette. There is a restaurant in the hotel called Irish Channel. Food was delicious, only warning drink prices are awful; 4 shots totaled 30. After that we went to the liquor store a 1/2 block away. Taking a car prepare to pay $30/night. We took a train to Union Station about a $7 cab trip to hotel & used the Metro Line to get around town we know traffic & parking is absurd in DC. Staff was wonderful, courteous & friendly, always smiling & anything you need. At check out we had several hours before our train, staff was happy to check our bags so we could site see more then called us a cab back to Union Station. Would definitely stay again.

"Clean, comfortable, convenient"
The hotel was clean. The customer service was well above average. The breakfast was a bit limited in comparison, but there were enough options for the weary traveler. It was well located for my purposes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service and location in DC, can't beat it!"
Our original hotel did not have a room with 2 doubles beds as we had reserved (Washington DC Marriott Georgetown), so we got a room at the last minute at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in downtown DC (near Chinatown) and couldn't have been more pleased. The people were tremendous from the front desk to the valet to the breakfast staff. They were friendly […] and helpful. We got a much better rate and really enjoyed the free full breakfast. I shared a bed with my teenage daughter which can often spell disaster, but both mom and daughter slept very well for 3 nights. Also a great location, safe for walking at night with plenty to do within blocks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun family vacation"
Nice hotel- clean with friendly staff. Breakfast was always well stocked. Only downside was the expensive parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Verizon Center"
We chose Fairfield Inn because of its location. We were within walking distance of the Metro, Verizon Center and the Smithsonian Museum. A perfect choice for site-seeing. Staff was friendly, although my girlfriend and I submitted to a room search when the staff thought we were smoking even though neither one of us smoked. But outside of that experience, […] the stay was a pleasant one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel and convenient to the metro."
Nice location, quiet in Chinatown. Convenient walking distance to many attractions and the metro. Had to park around the corner in a parking garage which is extra $, but parking is scarce downtown. We dropped our luggage off at the door. Very nice and clean accommodations. The complimentary breakfast was very good and there was coffee, hot chocolate, […] etc always in the lobby area when we came back from a long day of touring. The staff was exceptional and very, very nice!! Rooms were safe as had to use key to come up the elevator. Would stay again! Traveled with husband and 2 kids age 10 and 8. Beds were comfortable and clean. Nice place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place for short stay"
Small room. Location and breakfast was good. Attached bar area is nice. Parking garage on 6th st at H street was only a short walk and cheaper than hotel valet parking. Nice place and no complaints overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great time with a few negative items."
I was very disappointed with the heating and cooling system in the room. I had to get out of bed in the night several times to turn the temperature back down to where I had set it. I also had to turn the fan back to on too as it would change itself to auto. The light in the shower was missing the cover also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay at this hotel was "okay." It was clean enough and generally comfortable. However, as is too often the case, the walls and doors are very thin, making it possible to hear everything in the hallway and neighboring rooms. Bring ear plugs when staying at this hotel. I stayed in an ADA room, which was fine, but I wished for a shelf by the bathroom […] sink; the sink in the room had no surface for holding my toiletries. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
check-in was fast and smooth, but when I got to my room the hand towels in the bathroom were unfolded and laying near the sink. Plus, the soap was out of its wrapper and wet ( wrapper was in the trash can). It was unexpected, but later remedied.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient location relative to the Smithsonian."
Quick check-in, helpful and friendly staff, great restaurant on site.Genuine Expedia guest review
Love this hotel. It is close to everything I need. Plus, it's in a great neighborhood with plenty of food options. Not happy with room service. It is treated like "an afterthought". Brought me a Coke in a bottle with no opener. Not good in the middle of the night. But the location is awesome so I will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The ONLY negative comment is about parking. It was difficult to find a place to park...and ALSO difficult to get valet service. Otherwise the hotel and staff were OUTSTANDING!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy and awkward"
I had to have a handicap accessible room and the bed was so oh I couldn't transfer from my wheelchair and had to have my friend lift me into it. Also, we could hear every noise in the hallway- people walking by, doors opening and closing and talking. Staff was excellent and very kind and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Two days in Washington"
We got to the Fairfield Inn quite early, way before check in time. The people at the front desk were gracious enough to let us check in. They were very nice. The room as another story. As soon we got in, the toilet didn't work. I called down and they immediately had someone come up who said the fixed it. He did not. The room was tiny, not great. But […] the location was great and had access to everywhere we'd want to go! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ideal for Verizon Center"
The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed their the night of a Concert at the Verizon Center. Made the whole experience that much better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The night before our tour"
The room was a little bit small, but very clean. I felt safe knowing that elevators are only accessed with key-cards. The location was convenient for the purpose of the trip. Willard Marriott should be very proud that his philosophy is still being carried on as one of my favorite quotes from him is " "Treat your employees the way you would like to be […] treated."

Excellent location in Chinatown area. Near a Metro. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We received free breakfast with our stay which was better than expected. It was a full breakfast versus just coffee and pastries. We had free Wi-Fi. The room and amenities were well worth the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good room even though it was not what I booked"
The room was clean and suitable. The one issue was staff said when booking through third party my room select is not guaranteed. They tried to sell me on I was being upgraded from two beds to king bed suite which is actually the lower cost value. Hotels.com was awesome and processing the refund difference.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"I need assistance and I received it."
I had a medical emergency. My step daughter called the front desk requesting if they had a wheelchair available. She told the front desk person what was going on and I needed it so I could be taken downstairs and out to the street for a cab ride to the hospital. A couple of minutes went by and suddenly the was a knock on the door and there he was with […] a wheelchair. He rolled me out to the elevator, downstairs to the lobby and out to the street where he flagged down a cab. He did say that he could call the EMT's but we told him no. He then wanted to get us a ride over to the hospital by one of the staff but that person was busy . He was so helpful. I stayed at the emergency room for 5 hours and was released. The next afternoon I saw this person and he was so happy to see me back at the hotel. He said he was worried about me and I believe he was. He went beyond what was expected of him. I am sorry I did not get his name. Below is the date and time of this emergency. I did thank him for what he did. This happened on Tuesday night Aug 5th around 9:45PM. Tom Walsh.

Don't get a small king room... it's SMALL, like DC style small... but we didn't care as it was a night away from the kids. Really friendly staff and good breakfast! Great location just a block or two from subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Attention to personal comfort"
My stay here was a leap beyond anything I could have anticipated. Having stayed the night previous at the J.W. Marriot, I was literally overwhelmed by Fairfield Inn & Suites' exemplary attention to client comfort and cleanliness. Their bath and bed linens by far exceeded those at the Marriot and the staff was prompt (within a minute?) to take care of […] one minor concern I had. Breakfast blew the competition out of the race. Fresh fruit, oatmeal with walnuts, cinnamon, brown sugar,... eggs scrambled to perfection with melted cheese, delicious sausages and coffee and juice. I was in buffet heaven. Would I recommend the Fairfield Inn & Suites to anyone visiting Washington, D.C.?,... not if you think you'll be wanting to leave that hotel to find anything better !!!

"Great hotel for sightseeing!"
The hotel was super clean, the staff very smiley and helpful. Our room on the fifth floor was a corner room and very comfortable. I'm a stickler about a clean bathroom and it was perfect! The room was very quiet at night although it was in Chinatown that had a lot of restaurants - another plus. The attached restaurant had great food - a quick dinner […] after a long day of touring the museums. My only complaint was the dining area for the complimentary breakfast - way too small. Not enough room for a hotel that size for everyone to get their food and then sit down. But the food was plentiful and good. FYI - the price of valet parking on hotel description is less than it actually is. Very convenient to leave the car for the weekend - however there were a lot of parking garages in the area that offered parking for Saturday and Sunday for less than one night of valet. I would stay here again and would recommend to family & friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Front desk staff exceptionally friendly and helpful, e.g. in resolving a problem with a slow toilet and in booking airport transportation.
