Fairfield Inn & Suites is centrally located to just about everything. Good food places are within walking distance as well as places to visit. It is also close to a subway station which makes comings and goings easy. There is hot breakfast, this means bacon or sausage a, eggs, waffles, fruits, bread, etc. available. It is quiet when you go...

Wonderful hotel. Clean, welcoming staff, great breakfast, valet parking! Right in Chinatown, 100’s of places to eat nearby, walking distance (20 min) to the Mall and a 15 min walk to the convention center. Major Metro stop near by, as well as bus, taxi, and ride share services. I was here in Mid January with some students for an event....

This was my second choice location for a meeting at the Convention Center (which is about a 10 minute walk), but I liked it. Front desk staff was helpful, and the room very comfortable. It includes a hot breakfast and free basic wifi. Location is good: an easy walk to Metro, restaurants, and the DC Circulator bus (Georgetown-Union Station line)....

I will say I enjoyed my stay at the Fairfield Inn. I heard it used to be a Red Roof Inn, but whatever renovations they did were well done. The front staff were friendly and spoke every time you left and came back. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and big enough for two people to stay comfortably. The closet...

This hotel is well situated (H & 5th NW) for what we wanted to see . It borders Chinatown and there are some great restaurants waiting to serve you. It's a 2 block walk to the Metro and about a six block walk to Pennsylvania Avenue where the Newseum is located. The hotel itself is not the usual Marriott standard...

Absolutely amazing friendly staff. Super comfortable and clean rooms. Wonderful breakfast. Would come back here in a heartbeat. Great location too. We walked to Capitol Hill and the mall. Shops and must see Washington DC landmarks all close.

Staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Breakfast was busy and it appeared all levels of staff and management pitched in to keep things moving. Front desk staff were exceptional; thoughtful and helpful. Attached bar/restaurant was delicious and just what our party of five needed after a long day of sight seeing. 5 different dishes were ordered and all were very...

We stayed here for a night after a show in DC. It was extremely convenient, just a couple blocks off the Chinatown metro stop. You're right in the middle of Chinatown and next door to the Verizon Center, multiple museums, and numerous theaters. The free breakfast made it a step above other area hotels. The room was small but ok...

Overall the hotel is very good. Staff friendly and accommodating. Our only issue was the spotty wifi signal in our room. Great location near the National Mall. Breakfast was good if you arrived early. Later times the breakfast area was very crowded but everyone was fed! We would stay here again.
