What a wonderful stay I had here, the stay was exemplary especially Roy at the Front Desk. He called a cab for us and made sure that it was waiting in the morning. Things like that make the stays perfect.

Nearby lots of conveniences and Metro made it easy to get anywhere in the city. No complaints except bed too comfortable and wanted to sleep more!. everyone made the stay great from the... More

This is a nice classic hotel with excellent rooms, bedding, and decor. Most of the staff were extremely helpful. I am particularly grateful to a kind doorman who helped me with some complicated transportation. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the restaurant was quite nice and relaxing. I would definitely stay here again as I like the overall ambiance, location,... More

I am beyond angry and disappointed. This hotel broke the cardinal rule og hotels: it did not honor a reservation made in advance. Be warned: if you think you have a confirmed reservation, this hotel may not honor it. After a horrible flight delay, I arrived at the Fairfax on Embassy Row earlier tonight to check in. I booked this... More

The reasons that made us choose this hotel were the excellent price we found on Travelocity, together with its convenient location, near Dupont Circle. I guess that if you are a young person/couple, this hotel should not be your first choice. The decor and quietness of the place is clearly not for young tourists. That being said, the room was...

Great room, service and food. The hotel is beautiful, with a lot of attention to detail. The staff remembered us each and every time we were leaving for the day or arriving back to the hotel in the evening. The breakfast was outstanding, not your typical continental breakfast and lunch and/or dinner were tasty as well. Conveniently located near the... More

I have been making annual visits to Washington D.C. throughout my life. There is no better time to visit than right now -- in the summer and autumn (P.S. the humidity has been very low this year!). I stayed at The Fairfax (a Starwood property) for 2 nights during July 4, 2014 and I had such a perfect time at... More

The Fairfax is a grand old hotel just off Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Many years ago it housed one of the Kennedys' favorite French restaurants,the Jockey Club, and is now a member of the the Starwood Luxury Collection chain. It is OK, but I have stayed in better 4 Point hotels. The service was spotty. I arrived in a... More
