We stayed here for two nights in June 2014, ahead of my business trip to Tyson's Corner. We chose The Fairfax at Embassy Row for the location near Dupont Circle, which afforded easy access to the various areas of the city we explored and provided a dynamic but safe neighborhood at night. As some have previously mentioned, the hotel is... More

Would I go there again? Maybe. If you have shopping genes you will feel at home. My jeans did not fit in too well to the luxury looking internal decoration. The staff was friendly, but not in a way to make you feel at home. All was clean and the breakfast was nice. Location was great. Subway very close by... More

The hotel location is excellent and also close to the subway station. All hotel staff I met were very courteous and friendly. I stayed in this hotel for less than 24 hours for a business trip. I had an early check-in at 11am. The check-in staff can't locate any room at that time, however, since I'm an SPG member eligible... More

The Fairfax is a hidden jewel with so much elegance. Rooms, staff, and location were all excellent. Beds and rooms were comfortable. Staff was pleasant and very accomodating. We also attended an event here, which we cannot say enough about. Food and service at the event was top shelf. The ballroom was so elegant and stately. The location of this... More

I don't typically write reviews, but our stay at the Fairfax warrants some praise. Having flown from Los Angeles and Washington DC, the first thing on your mind is getting to the hotel to shower and decompress. We arrived at the Fairfax to find they were completely full, however, without any hesitation or a word from us, they began making... More

We stayed at the fairfax for 5 nights and each of them were perfect. Attentive and helpful front desk staff. Super clean and our room was bright and large. We had our bikes with us, and the location worked out perfectly for cycling to all the monuments, the Zoo and to the museums. The bike path was about a 5... More

I stayed at the Fairfax while in Washington, D.C. to take my daughter to college; our family stayed there for two nights. When I walked into the lobby, I was delighted with the elegance and stateliness of this property. I could practically see images of ladies in ballgowns and gentlemen in topcoats and bowlers. Our room was lovely, as well,... More

My husband and I traveled to DC for a fraternity and sorority gathering. The service far exceeded our every expectation. We will be back in DC in 4 years and I am already planning to stay at this fabulous hotel! The room and view was amazing. I truly felt like I was home!

The location for me was perfect. It has the quiet charm of the desirable Embassy row neighborhood, and yet it is close to the metro, shops and restaurants of DuPont Circle. The staff was great, especially the doormen and bell staff. Greeted me warmly and inquired about my day. The fitness room was phenomenal. I travel often, and not many... More
