Stayed for a little less than a week here. The Fairfax is a charming combination of luxury and cozy warmth. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully appointed, and the service was great. Guest services quickly responded to our request for non-down pillows, and another time after we asked if they had a wine bottle opener we could use, they sent... More

This really is a gem of a hotel - refined, elegant, full of old world charm and character. It has the feel of the very best luxury boutique hotels. Externally, a 7 or 8 floor imposing traditional building occupying a corner plot with a semi-circular driveway. We stayed for 4 nights as a family base for exploring Washington DC. We... More

Jon Johnson who worked at the concierge desk was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Staff was friendly and gave good recommendations on places to eat. Decent location to reach monuments. Rooms were well supplied to everyday needs.

It was a nice place to stay and the staff( John, Quatina, Fatima, and others) was helpful for getting tickets to local attractions. The staff was also helpful for getting directions and getting things for the room. The hotel was close to the subway, which was handy for getting around the area. We had nice room and the air conditioning... More

Travelling as a family of 5 with 3 young kids, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel special from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for staff. The room was clean, comfortable and the location of the hotel was perfect for seeing the sights. The bar was great to retire to in the evenings, and catered... More

We stayed for one night at this hotel and were sadly disappointed. The location is great. The service was good-especially Roy from the front desk. But I could not sleep-the in room ac frequently and loudly cycles on and off, waking me repeatedly during the night. There is apparently no ac in the hallways or lobby which I found extremely...

Highlight of this hotel were the staff and the location. The front desk staff and the bartender were awesome - cheery, super helpful and engaging. They made the stay very pleasant.

My husband drove me to Washington to get my visas placed into my passports. I chose this hotel for him (he likes 5* service.) Great room, bed, and mostly enjoyable food (American breakfast needs upgrading in quality of ingredients).

We chose The Fairfax after searching online for a well-rated hotel at a moderate price. Frankly, we were surprised that such a well rated hotel in such a great location was not significantly more expensive. We arrived early on a Thursday afternoon for a weekend tour of DC. The Fairfax was easy to find near DuPont Circle. Throughout our stay,... More
