Arrived for a family wedding on a Friday: Uber car from DC National, very friendly staff placed us quickly in a very comfortable room, reservation got complicated quickly: staff worked quickly to resolve and everyone was happy. Luxury accommodations generally all have comparable facilities- in the end, it's all about the level of service. Fairfax at Embassy Row really does... More

Very well decorated hotel, with very nice furniture and with nice little extras. The service was also good. The bathroom had one of the best showers we found during our holidays. There was free internet in the lobby, but the internet in the room was very expensive. It was a bit weird because the lobby (that had only 3 or... More

We arrived at the hotel at 10 am after an overnight flight from San Diego, California. Although check-in time was not until 3pm, and the hotel was almost fully booked, the front office staff and the director himself, Ertug, went the extra mile to find us a grand deluxe room with a large bathroom and the best view! Housekeeping was... More

Stayed here for a quick weekend getaway, and the location was perfect. It was easily accessible from the Metro, and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Everything was easy to get to on foot. The hotel itself is older, but not "old" feeling. It has been updated (or kept up) very nicely. The room was spacious, and the bathroom was very... More

We arrived at the hotel at 4:00 AM after our flight just to find out our room was overbooked and we're sent to a nearby hotel. Besides that, hotel service and experience was great. Our room was really nice with comfortable bed. Very great deal!

We stayed here for two nights in June 2014, ahead of my business trip to Tyson's Corner. We chose The Fairfax at Embassy Row for the location near Dupont Circle, which afforded easy access to the various areas of the city we explored and provided a dynamic but safe neighborhood at night. As some have previously mentioned, the hotel is... More

Would I go there again? Maybe. If you have shopping genes you will feel at home. My jeans did not fit in too well to the luxury looking internal decoration. The staff was friendly, but not in a way to make you feel at home. All was clean and the breakfast was nice. Location was great. Subway very close by... More

The hotel location is excellent and also close to the subway station. All hotel staff I met were very courteous and friendly. I stayed in this hotel for less than 24 hours for a business trip. I had an early check-in at 11am. The check-in staff can't locate any room at that time, however, since I'm an SPG member eligible... More

The Fairfax is a hidden jewel with so much elegance. Rooms, staff, and location were all excellent. Beds and rooms were comfortable. Staff was pleasant and very accomodating. We also attended an event here, which we cannot say enough about. Food and service at the event was top shelf. The ballroom was so elegant and stately. The location of this... More

I don't typically write reviews, but our stay at the Fairfax warrants some praise. Having flown from Los Angeles and Washington DC, the first thing on your mind is getting to the hotel to shower and decompress. We arrived at the Fairfax to find they were completely full, however, without any hesitation or a word from us, they began making... More
