Reintroducing a D.C. Icon

Welcome to a city that’s perpetually changing, yet timeless in its grandeur and elegance. And nowhere in the nation’s capital reflects this duality quite like Fairmont Washington, D.C.,  Georgetown.  While you’re visiting, we invite you to experience our outstanding hospitality—and to enjoy our recent renovation, which has added a dazzling new ballroom and revitalized our lobby, bar and courtyard to embody the beauty of the region, from blossoming cherry trees to the striking grid pattern upon which D.C. is built. 

At the heart of our transformation is our new 2,990-square-foot (280-square-meter) Kennedy Ballroom, destined to become one of D.C.’s most sought-after venues for weddings, conferences and everything in between. Adjacent to our Grand Ballroom and bedecked in the latest audiovisual technology and elegant decor, the Kennedy Ballroom will turn any gathering of up to 300 guests into a night they’ll never forget. With over 30,000 square feet (2,800 square meters) of meeting and event space, we have the perfect setting for any function. For cocktail receptions and more casual events, our completely remodeled lobby and courtyard are perfect for mingling, networking or just unwinding after a successful event.
