For what they charged I was underwhelmed. Tiny room. A closet for just a couple of items. Noisy Heater/air conditioner. Uncomfortable beds and pillows. Not a very informative staff. Next time I'm in DC I will pay a little more to get a lot better hotel.

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip to D.C. The staff were very friendly and gave me a complimentary upgrade to a king suite. It was spacious and seemed to have been recently updated. There was a restaurant in the hotel for room service or a meal downstairs. Prices for food were reasonable and the nachos I...

The hotel is located in Chinatown which is about the place you want to be in DC. The metro is 2 blocks away. The hotel staff is both polite and efficient. The rooms are ok. Included breakfast is definitely a plus. Overall a great experience. Will be coming back

The room was clean, and well enough appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to get around by foot, and had good access to public transportation. But the room was small. We were right opposite the elevator, so it was annoying listening to the bell every time someone got in or out. Then by about 4 or...

We were there during the Easter weekend. It is a perfect location, walking distance to good restaurants, museums, and metro. Friendly service at the front desk. Good hot breakfast in the morning. Room is clean with enough plugs for charging all the mobile devices of a family. Sound proof could be better. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my second stay at the Fairfield. Maybe that's why it felt a bit like a home away from home. It was familiar. The Fairfield is at the edge of D.C.'s Chinatown, which explains the the vaguely Asian themed rooms and carpet. It doesn't explain the on site Irish pub and restaurant. The location is great. You are within...

We stayed here because it was near our son's apartment. It fits in nicely with Chinatown and its environs. The lobby is nicely decorated with an Asian motif. Check out the wall by the computer/business center--there are silver replicas of fortune cookies and they really open up with fortunes inside! Nobody seemed to know this. Very close to the metro...

This is not a 5 star hotel and it doesn't pretend to be. The staff is friendly and professional, our room (while small) was clean and laid out well. Now for the bad. The valet parking is $26 per night and the valets have to get your car out in a busy street. Our valet had us wait 1 minute...

Stayed here on a one-night business trip over St. Patrick's Day. Location is good, there are a lot of bars and restaurants nearby. This is Chinatown so that adds a cool factor as there are tons of authentic Asian choices nearby. My conference was at the Newseum, near the Capital, and it was about a 10 minute walk. Tons of...

Family trip to see the circus and one night spent in the hotel. Travelers be smart, if staying as a couple for one or two nights, it might not bother you that the rooms are small little poorly insulated cells with no visual perks into the city or downtown area.
