What a perfect hotel. Just the right size for the staff to recognize you each time you return from a day touring DC. Lovely decorated room with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Right by DuPont Circle. Great galleries. Good shopping and don't miss the small Phillips Museum right across the street. If you are going to spend most... More

Had a wonderful weekend in DC with my cousin. The Fairfax is a great hotel with much charm and character. We were warmly welcomed at check in and each time we exited and entered the hotel. The room was decorated with old world charm but updated with all of the modern comforts, just right. The bathroom was large and had... More

Loved this hotel overall - amazing location right next to Red Line subway, food and shopping of Dupont Circle, Starbucks next door along with laundromats (highly recommend) and massage/nail parlours etc. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. Unlike other reviews, almost every time the the door staff opened the big doors with a smile and a "welcome back". Warm cookies... More

Despite traveling to DC many, many times over the past 12 years, this was my first time staying at the Fairfax at Embassy Row. Location-wise, it is excellent. It is a short walk from the Dupont Circle Metro and close to a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes. In fact, there are some excellent restaurants and two of the... More

I stayed here on business in DC (well, a weekend plus business) four nights. Given that it brands itself as a "Luxury Collection" hotel, I'd haver expected more. Check-in was friendly and efficient - though I was given wrong information, which was annoying. I thought my whole stay was being billed to the company, and this was confirmed by the... More

I checked-in around 11pm on Thanksgiving (not my choice, surprisingly!) and was greeted by a very cheerful desk clerk who rapidly welcomed me and checked if I wanted a newspaper, what my Starwood reward points thing would be (breakfast, Wifi or late checkout, I think they offered) and quickly sent me up to my room. The hotel is in a... More
