I stayed here for a night before an important business meeting, and I will definitely be back. I slept like a baby. The bed mattress, linens and pillows were very comfortable. The room had a large sitting area. Large bathroom with thick towels and strong water pressure. The service was excellent, particularly John Kontinos at the front desk, who helped... More

Great stay! Careful when you book though - the pictures/room descriptions are a bit misleading. I thought that I booked a room type one step up from the lowest/standard...but when I got to the room it looked like one of the standard room pictures. It is a little bit of a walk to get to metro, etc but overall the... More

Even with just a standard room package for a few nights, I felt as though I was receiving the treatment of a VIP or a guest who frequents the Fairfax at Embassy Row. The staff were overly nice and willing to assist with any and all tasks seemingly because they sincerely took pride in great customer service. The Dupont Circle... More

When visiting DC you could not ask for a better hotel to spend your days and nights. The service and people were all very nice and accommodating. The shared spaces as well as our rooms were very clean and comfortable. If you are staying in DC I recommend this great hotel.

Stayed here two nights during the big 2016 snowstorm. Attractive, even elegant-looking, older hotel 1 1/2 blocks from Q Street Dupont Circle Metro. Quality is quite good for the price. Note: price does not include breakfast (fine with me, lots of great choices just a block or two away) and does not include Wi-Fi. If you read the room description... More

Everyone at the Fairfax went out of their way to be sure we were happy with our room, and we even got a call from the manager and the desk clerk to see if there was anything we needed. Although the room was not huge, it was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and had top-of-the-line towels and amenities.

Having lived in Metro DC and worked in DuPont Circle for many years, I always wondered about what a night in the Fairfax would be like. Now living away, I got the chance on a recent visit back to DC at a stunningly reasonable hotel rate. The Fairfax is simply one of those elegant, upscale hotels with large classic, well... More

Found a good rate for this hotel on a Saturday night. It is in a fairly decent Dupont Circle location and had a 4.5 star rating on the booking site. Was immediately upcharged for a second bed upon arrival. Told it was an upgrade to a suite but was simply a 2 bed room. The room was fairly basic with... More

This is an amazing out old hotel that has been redone just enough that is comfortable, but still has a ton of character. The walls are thick so there are no noise issues and the bed and linens are great. You cannot beat the location. It is on Embassy Row, and just minutes from Dupont Circle and the Farmer's Market...
