Convenient Location

Very much a city hotel - comfortable and clean. Rooms are quite tight but this is to be expected on the location. Staff is friendly, parking is valet, easy peasey - except for the breakfast. The breakfast was a crazy nightmare - long lines, no where to sit etc. - you are better to get breakfast elsewhere in the neighborhood!

Terrible

I had a terrible experience at this hotel. First of all I had a complete stranger walk in my room saying that it was his, because the front desk made a mistake. Also, they charged me again when I checked in.. I had already paid on this site. I will never return to this place. TERRIBLE!

Fairfield Was DC Chinatown

Memorial Day weekend, tough to get a room found this-- pretty nice hotel, the layout was dated - a lot of obsolete looking electronic connections, but the carpet, bathroom, furniture, everything looked new. Heart of Chinatown, easy walk to the mall. Staff was pretty good - biggest issue was the lobby, probably the smallest lobby I have ever seen for a hotel this size-- tight squeeze for breakfast buffet, elevator and front desk.(pretty jammed up) but overall not bad, consistent marriot quality - so the price in DC is pretty good deal I guess (lots of groups and kids around probably for that reason)

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

good Chinese food, (great dim sum) but some of the restaurants in the area appear to cater to the lunch/business crowd and close early on weekends/holidays - so before you waste time drilling down into a menu online, check the hours

Almost perfect location but not for light sleepers

Conveniently located in Chinatown near Gallery Center, the hot breakfast served in the lobby was a good bonus for my weekend getaway, and surely helped keep me full for long walks of sightseeing in Washington DC. But the rooms are very loud: I constantly heard adults and children and teenagers screaming and carrying on in the hallway. Elevators are slow, so luckily, I got my exercise with the stairs. When there are 15 people in line for the single waffle machine in the morning, it might be time to re-think the set-up of the morning buffet, as handy an amenity as it is. And nobody monitored the two computer stations in the lobby, so I had to reconnect the printer to print my boarding passes, only to wait even longer because some other people before me had sent their documents to the unplugged printer multiple times, wasting many sheets of paper. Everything would have been much nicer and greater comfort with attention to such details. And just as my experience has been with every Marriott property, the free WiFi is an attractive feature to publicize, but the actual WiFi service was awful: weak signal in the room, and I was constantly logged off and on and off and on multiple times each day. Finally, the closet was strangely configured with what seemed like a re-used arm from a store's display rack which made getting the hangers on and off by going behind the pegged stoppers really annoying, when a simple horizontal bar would have held just as much. They need to realize that travelers these days want the WiFi and food to be good, and we are not so easily impressed with only flat screen TVs.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is an easy walk to the National Portrait Gallery, the Newseum, and the International Spy Museum, both of which I think are overlooked among the many sightseeing destinations in this fine city.
