We found the fairfax to be a beautiful hotel with nice spacious room. Great location with plenty of good restaurants and pubs nearby and close to the subway. And lots of fabulous buildings nearby (embassy row). The staff were very pleasant. Our only complaint is that twice we mentioned to staff that that the room next to ours (maybe a... More

1. You stand in long line waiting for check in while blocking the entrance. 2. Valet parking only costing $53 including tax per night. 3. Nothing in the room pints to luxury. Small, old and suffocating. 4. Food is good. Food service personnel Pitt and efficient. 5. Far from the Mall and museums. 50 min walk. Maybe good for visiting... More

I stayed at this hotel in September, 2014. From the minute I walked in the door I was greeted by friendly doormen, checked in quickly and brought up to a wonderfully cozy room. This hotel is old school Washington … none of that new-age industrialist see-through bathroom nonsense. My room had a view of the Washington Monument, a lavish queen-size... More

I stayed at the Fairfax on business for a single night, where I did not book the hotel. A 30 min night time walk had me in front of The White House, and a little further to Memorial park etc. The room was well appointed, and the breakfast was charming and well attended. Yes, paid for Wifi may be a... More

It was a nice place but I thought maybe they were going for luxe, but it came across as somewhat tired. And charging extra for WiFi is an antiquated attitude! Liked it fine, but wouldn't stay there again. Liked the area a lot!

What a beautiful hotel the Fairfax is! Lots of great architecture - woods and moldings are amazing. Seemed very old fashioned, yet modern bathroom. The best part of this hotel by far were the employees! Everyone from the Valet, to housekeeping, and the bartender were so warm and genuinely friendly. The neighborhood is terrific! Lots of places to eat and... More

This is the second time at this very quiet and elegant hotel that is part of Starwood. We were upgraded to a suite which had a wonderful view and a rather large bathroom. The room itself was nicely appointed and the bed comfortable. Only a couple of small issues: (1) the only place to have something to eat after breakfast... More

I've stayed at the Faifax a few times in the last month. It is now my 'go to' destination in DC. It's impressive when the Bellman Rama remembered me after my first stay, but it's just one example of a staff that takes being helpful personally. The style is old world, simply elegant and comfortable. It has a private and... More

Not a "luxury collection" property based upon my travel experience. Very little dining and bar hours, and no sitting area on the entrance level for guests to linger. Most luxury hotels have all of the above. My check-in was not a good first impression, the desk clerk was either inexperienced or just not guest friendly. However, the next shift of... More
