Veronica M I was invited to a wedding held there last weekend. I would like to say I was thrilled upon receiving a warm welcome from the front desk once we arrived!! Everything was superb! The ambiance of the hotel and the hospitality of the front desk staff was more than overwhelming for me and my family to embrace. We... More

After planning and saving for two years, we traveled to Washington DC last July 2014, it being a learning excursion for my daughter’s eighth grade history class. We chose to stay at the Fairfax at Embassy Row as it is part of the Starwood Hotel Group: we had received a Starwood gift card to cover our hotel stay. The hotel... More

I really like this hotel, and have been there before. I had a small problem with my room this trip. The check-in clerk and the manager on duty (Ertug) were extremely helpful and receptive to my concerns and fixed the problem without any fuss or bother. I went about my day in DC and when I returned in the evening,... More

We loved this hotel, overall an great experience. The rooms are small but well appointed, with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The hotel lobby is very small, but charming and the front desk staff was very helpful. Location is great, right at Dupont Circle, only a block from the metro and lots of great restaurants right around the corner! The... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night only. We were booked into the room upon arrival but told the people in the room had booked a late check out, so they would hold our luggage until the room became available. We went sight seeing with umbrellas supplied by the hotel because of the inclement weather. Upon returning to the... More

The hotel is overall nice. Staff is friendly and the location is good, just a few steps from Dupon Circle subway stop. The room are small, and the structure is a little dated for a Luxury Collection, but it is comfortable. 5 minutes away you can stop for a good coffee and bakery at Le Pain Quotidien.

Skip the shiny new places near the Convention Center, or even the tired and boring "big brands" and come stay amidst the history, foreign influence, and elegance of Embassy Row. Formerly a Ritz Carlton property, and once the "home away from home" for famous elected officials and their families, you will be immediately embraced by the charm, comfort, and old-style... More

Stayed this past weekend on a business trip to Washington DC. The room was tastefully appointed and comfortable. The fitness room is open 24 hours/day and is well equipped. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant which was excellent, especially the soups. The staff were uniformly helpful. A classic DC boutique hotel. I would stay there again.
