Just stayed at the Fairfax for the weekend with the girlfriend. Great place! Really traditionally pretty inside, really comfortable room, really good in-room dining. I'd definitely recommend the Fairfax, especially if you'd like to be walking distance from all the landmarks. Only downside: Wifi costs $12.99. I find this ridiculous. Free Wifi should really be standard at this point.

Catherine at the front desk was extremely warm, friendly, and helpful. We recently brought our conference back to this property and it is staff like Catherine that ensure we made the right decision and will return.

I stayed at the Fairfax Embassy Row hotel for Capital Hills Day program that was located right there in the hotel this April. The hotel is in a great location right there in Dupont Circle and close to the metro. The rooms were beautiful and they came with a flat screen TV, phone, hairdryer, iron and ironing board (although the... More

I was here for a long conference I had a great time here the staff bent over backwards to help with bags, amenities, and anything else you needed. I injured my knee running and it was all scratched up. They helped fix my knee and helped with my bags. They replaced items for all 5 days that I was there.... More

Absolutely wonderful experience staying at the Fairfax Embassy Row Hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel. Great location, close to DuPont Circle and the Metro. Staff was fantastic. We enjoyed a drink at the bar, but did not have dinner at the hotel, too many other choices. Also had a great experience with Brian Twersky, great representative.

This is our 3rd stay at the Fairfax - only because we are starwood. Honestly the hotel is fine but really no more. Location is good, bed is comfortable, but thats really about it. The hotel bar and restaurant scene is about 10 years behind any of the trends in the US - not food or ingredient focused, depressing vibe,... More

The staff here are very friendly and the rooms are spacious! The view from windows on lower floors is less than ideal, so aim for the 7th floor or higher to have a nice view of the city. The neighborhood is beautiful and within a small walk of the metro, embassies, Georgetown, and Adams Morgan.

This hotel is elegant and well located. It is a nice property, and comfortable. The staff seemed a bit disorganized, and we had to ask several times for some things, remind them to make up or put away the pull out couch, which they didn't do unless we asked. They seemed disorganized at check-in when our room wasn't ready, but... More

This is my third visit to the Fairfax at Embassy Row and I would return many more times. The people are so very helpful and polite. The room is comfortable and very clean and the food in the restaurant is delicious. I especially like the location as it is close to the Dupont Metro Station as well as restaurants, shopping...
