I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were spotless and the hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the breakfast staff very helpful and friendly as well. They offer parking but valet only so if you happen to need something from your car you have to get a valet employee to walk you to your...

I stayed here with a friend when we went to a convention. We stayed Friday and Saturday night. The staff was great! They are super friendly, helpful and considerate. The location is great - so close to the Metro station. We ate at a couple of nearby Chinese restaurants which were within walking distance. The rooms were clean and the...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our anniversary weekend. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Winnie (not sure if I spelled it correctly). She was very informative and gave us some great information about the area. Everyone in the hotel was nice; great customer service. The complimentary breakfast was good. The hotel was...

Lucky us! The Fairfield Inn in Chinatown is a perfect location close to museums and excellent restaurants. The staff is gracious and helpful. Our queen room had a safe, a microwave, and a wee small closet. We always bring hangers and used the shower rod for hanging clothes. Plenty of thick towels and hot, hot water. Convenient to have breakfast...

I had originally booked 3 nights stay. We arrived at 3 am during the 1st night. Needless to say we just needed a place to rest our heads after a 9 hour drive. It took way too long to check in because even after checking in online I had to wake up the front desk to let us in and...

From the moment we arrived to the time we departed 3 days later everyone on staff provided excellent service. The room was clean, the breakfast was a great variety. And the staff... From the front desk, to the maids, the people out front hailing cabs, you name all top notch. Looking forward to our return trip. And a perfect location.

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend trip to DC. The hotel staff was very friendly, responsive and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is located within walking distance to many DC attractions and sites. For the price, this hotel was a great deal and we highly recommend it to others.

I was booked into this hotel through a conference I attended in DC. The hotel was about a mile walk from the meeting location which took me through part of Chinatown. From the minute I walked in until the day I checked out, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They like to say they treat you like family and...

Average hotel. I was not happy at all with the $50 incidental charge that I was not notified about at check in. I was billed one amount at check out and then when I reviewed my credit card bill I discovered I was billed for $50 more. If it is a standard practice then I think I should have been...
