The Fairmont Washington D.C. is located in Georgetown, along M Street, making it a prime location for sightseeing and going out in the city. While rates during the week are high, weekend rates can drop under $200, so I decided to book a last-minute trip to DC for the weekend.

As the hotel was relatively quiet this weekend, I was pleased to learn upon check-in that I was upgraded to an Ambassador Suite which was basically an executive suite with a separate living room and bedroom.

Bottom Line

I was really impressed with the service at the Fairmont Washington D.C. All the staff I encountered were very friendly and asking if they could do anything to make my stay more enjoyable.

Coming in from DCA, the hotel is about a 15 minute taxi or Uber ride from the airport. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, you could also take the Metro in D.C. to the Foggy Bottom-GWU Station, a few blocks away.

If you’re looking to explore the sights in D.C., this hotel is in a good location with both the Park Hyatt Washington and the Westin Georgetown located on the other corners of the block.

The property has recently been renovated with a brand new lobby and newly renovated guest rooms. The hotel does have a Fairmont Gold lounge on the 9th floor, however they do not offer complimentary upgrades to their Fairmont Gold level.
