This was my first visit to the Fairfax on Embassy Row, although I've stayed in Dupont Circle a couple of times before. There was a bit of a queue to check in - there was a big group here for a conference and most didn't speak English well, so dealing with them took time. Once checked in, the room was... More

This place is kind of old school elegant -- but mostly that just means lots of wood paneling and extremely helpful, friendly staff. There is not posh lobby nor lavish tiled gym. It is a great location for a wedding party --- tons of restaurants nearby. For healthy people, easy walk to Dupont Circle or Georgetown($7 cab ride). But honestly,... More

I loved the Embassy Row hotel at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. However, I was annoyed to discover I had a $9.95 daily service charge. There was no mention of this when I made the reservation. Hidden charges make customers unhappy, we feel duped. Customers have the right to know the price of what we buy, when we buy it,... More

We had an amazing time in Washington and the Fairfax was ideally situated, with great gym and comfortable rooms. The staff were really friendly and helpful and I cannot fault anything with the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay at the Fairfax.

This is a lovely traditional hotel. No pounding techno-pop or hipster vibe. And for me that's a good thing. Everything a five-star should be, with all the extras including a coffeemaker in the room (many five-stars don't have them). The breakfast buffet was nice - love all that snowy white linen! Only issue with this hotel is the small rooms.... More

The staff, location and ambience were all excellent. The hotel exceeded my expectations, beginning with a prompt check-in to my room even though I had arrived early. I look forward to staying here during my next visit to Washington DC.

My wife and totally enjoyed our stay at the Fairfax Embassy Row. We were given a great price at a deluxe suite and then upgraded to a larger one at no cost. The promotional package included free internet, free buffet breakfast for two (very good), and two free Metro passes each day worth $29. Housekeeping was excellent and the hotel... More

The hotel was lovely, the location was great, walking distance to the DuPont Circle subway and shops and restaurants. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. My young son enjoyed the cookies in the lobby every evening. The only complaint I have is that I wish the wifi was free in... More

I was met at the door and checked in extremely quickly. The bed was comfortable with a good choice of pillows. There was a good range of toiletries in the bathroom.
