Great staff, very nice room in an elegant and older hotel. Great location as well, right off DuPont circle (and visitors can wander around the Embassy area and marvel at all the country flags). I note the fact that it's older, as the rooms do show their age a bit (including, in my case, a few insects on the tub... More

We had relatives coming in to town from several different cities and thought it would be nice to have everyone converge in Washington DC. I have stayed at the Fairfax on business for years but loved the charm so much that I wanted the entire family to experience it. I gave the front desk a heads-up that we were all... More

Our hotel room at our first vist looked out on embassy row and we could see a statue of Gandhi right outside The second time around we didnt have a good view of anything. We made a note... More

For eight nights I had the pleasure of staying at the Fairfax on Embassy Row. The rooms were spacious and clean and the lobby bar made for an easy nightcap locale. Most importantly however, was the attentiveness of the hotel staff. Traveling with me were 19 international visitors who had many questions for the front desk staff. They tirelessly give... More

Stayed for three days for a professional conference. Great facilities, extremely courteous and friendly staff, from the front desk to the bar to the house staff. Very professional and very well-trained. Especially want to call out Sonnelle on the evening shift at the front desk. Warm and friendly and made you feel right at home. Great sense of humor and...

We arrived at the Fairfax thinking we had a reservation but due to my error we didn't. The receptionist was truly the most patient lady ever as we fumbled to locate our confirmation. Needless to say, we couldn't and she politely checked us into a lovely junior suite. She then had Ertug Ersoy, the Front Office Director, meet with us... More

From the moment I arrived, Sonnelle in reception was outstanding. She worked so hard to ensure that every comfort was provided and nothing was too much bother for her. She was very professional and along with all of the other staff made sure our stay was excellent. Alasdair McDonnell MP

I spent three nights at the Fairfax Embassy Row in March 2015. I stayed on the fifth floor. The rooms were clean, today and spacious. Very comfortable bed and pillows. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only gripe is having to pay $12.99 per day for high speed internet. Otherwise, I highly recommend this hotel.

We arrived early and our room was not ready yet, so we checked out bags and headed out. The location was very quiet which I loved but the walk to the National Mall and Museums was a bit far so we took an Uber, which was under $20. We stayed on the top floor which was great and had a... More
