I was attending oral arguments at the Supreme Court this month and was only in the city for one night and was delighted to see that the Fairfax was offering the best rate of any Starwood property in the city that evening. Unfortunately, harsh weather that day caused cancellations of 3 flights i was booked on, and when I called... More

I loved everything about my stay here - customer service was great, the hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious. I only wish I had stayed longer than 1.5 days... I will definitely return. *I did stay here about 2.5 years ago, I wasn't able to select that far back when completing this.

I travel for work and have stayed in several hotels in DC, but The Fairfax is by far the nicest hotel so far- both in terms of service and quality. The hotel is located in Dupont circle and has a traditional look; very regal. The staff is very friendly and accommodating the whole time I was there. I have to... More

This hotel is great, the people treated me like a celebrity and greeted my family with a warm welcome. The room was very elegant and the bed was comfy. The lobby has a cozy feel and the people at the front desk greeted me every time I walked inside the hotel. The Fairfax defiantly deserves five stars

My wife and I stayed at the Fairfax over the weekend and had a great time. The staff is amazing. We met Scott (Food & Beverage Manager) who has to be one of the nicest guys in the hotel business. He made sure we had everything we needed while dining for dinner and breakfast the next morning. The room was... More

I have stayed at the Fairfax at Embassy Row three times in the past year (ironically I lived at the property for 10 months in 1992 when it was the Ritz Carlton & I was there for a business assignment). I cannot say enough about the impeccable staff - front desk; bellmen; housekeepers; etc. My daughter moved to Washington DC... More

Traditional style hotel. Clean. Short walk to Metro. Great neighborhood with lots of restaurants and beautiful buildings (and embassies). Kind of nice to of more central DC, quieter. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Phillips Collection is across the street, which is a great art museum.

I had some business in DC and decided to take the family with me. They treated the family like royalty. The staff went beyond their duties to accommodate our needs. Great room and the location is superb. I will stay again. Highly recommend to anyone

Just stayed at the Fairfax for the weekend with the girlfriend. Great place! Really traditionally pretty inside, really comfortable room, really good in-room dining. I'd definitely recommend the Fairfax, especially if you'd like to be walking distance from all the landmarks. Only downside: Wifi costs $12.99. I find this ridiculous. Free Wifi should really be standard at this point.

Catherine at the front desk was extremely warm, friendly, and helpful. We recently brought our conference back to this property and it is staff like Catherine that ensure we made the right decision and will return.
