This hotel is perfectly located for those who need public transportation. It's a straight shot from the DC Metro line. The room size was decent and met all my needs. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. However, because this hotel is in Chinatown, there are plenty of food options around including delivery from across the street. This hotel might... More

The location of this hotel is near Metro, Verizon Center, and a 10 minute walk to Union Station. It is in the heart of Chinatown, so there are many restaurants in the area. The staff is great, very helpful and conscientious. The rooms are an OK size. The closet was too small and arranged very oddly due to the position... More

Fairfield Inn & Suites is nicely located in Washington Chinatown. Close to major tourists attractions and easily accessible with METRO. I was happy with my stay and worth the price paid. Clean, well maintained, friendly staff. Will stay there again and I can give my best recommendations.

Location is on edge of Chinatown. LOTS of homeless people in the area which made us feel a little apprehensive about going out for dinner in the evenings so we opted for the so-so Irish Chanel pub which is attached to hotel.

The staff was great, the room size was good for an urban location. Hotel is in China Town with plenty of restaurants, 2 blocks to the Metro and Walgreens, great location. We walked to the White House (about 10 blocks) several times. We would stay again.
