I originally planned on booking this hotel for location alone...then I stumbled upon a great deal I couldn't resist. I booked a room with 2 beds for my best friend and me. It's close to a metro and plenty of nightlife for a younger crowd. Upon checking in we were told there was only a room with a king size... More

This location is extremely convenient to the Dupont Circle metro station. The hotel itself is lovely, and ALL of the staff we encountered over our four night stay were very friendly, helpful, and professional. As other reviewers have noted, there is very little lobby space in this facility, which can make it a tight fit checking in or out. The... More

Very close to Dupont Circle Metro station made it easy to navigate all the museums we had planned to visit. The rooms are quite spacious; we had two on the fourth floor with more than the usual amenities ... plenty of thick thirsty towels, extra padded hangers, chilled water bottles in a little refrigerator for our use, and charging ports...

Old world service, insanely spacious rooms, all the amenities you expect from SPG and one of the best locations in DC. This is my go to for DC trips. Right near Dupont Circle metro, quiet neighborhood, loads of fine dining and the luxurious Embassy Row out the door. Probably the largest rooms in DC. The staff is consistent, I have... More

First time visit - this is part of Starwood's Luxury Collection. It is located right adjacent to George Washington University - took a lovely walk around the neighborhood and really enjoyed the beauty of GW and the neighborhood. The rooms are very nice and well appointed. The main lobby for check in is small, but there is another lobby around... More

Arriving late evening, my reservation was from the following day I was told, despite having confirmation in writing from American Express. Having travelled for 30 hours, I was in no condition to argue, and accepted when (the very helpful and friendly) reception staff found me a room at a small inn nearby. It turned out that Fairfax has mistakenly changed... More

So the decor is a little...retro. I felt like I was staying in someone's grandma's room. It was also a little small but then again I was coming after staying in a mini-suite at The Renaissance in Downtown so that may have been it. I did expect more for a 5 star property, it felt a little lacking. Although I... More

Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice hotel but not enough to make it Starwood Luxury Collection. As a Platinum member I was "upgraded" to a higher floor room, but from what I could tell all the rooms are basically the same except for the suites. The rooms are nice sized and comfortable, but I found the bedding... More

This is my favorite hotel in Washington DC. Probably one of my favorite hotels anywhere. The staff is amazing, the rooms are always clean and neat. They really go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. It is centrally located in DuPont circle. I stay here both for business and pleasure.

I've been there for business reason. The hotel is nice and comfortable, but the real winning point is the staff. In there, you will find a hotel concierge always smiling and committed, especially if you have the chance to ask for information and suggestions to Sonnelle. She's really great! Recomended!
