I made some requests suggested by a previous reviewer--a 2 queen bed, corner room (more space for a family of 4, ask for a sofa bed for 9 year old), facing Mass Ave (quieter), 5th floor or higher. All of my requests were granted and the room proved perfect for our needs. Gracious, eager-to-please staff, cookies in the lobby at... More

Three to Four times a year we spend a weekend in DC. This was a beautiful and well kept classic hotel in a incredible location and extremely friendly staff. From the Valet, Doormen, Desk Staff, Bartender and Housekeepers they were all pleasant and attentive. For a little more than the Churchill or the Beacon with a better location we will... More

The hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating. I was traveling for business, and had my family with me (wife and 16-month-old). Sonnelle and the rest of the front desk / valet / bellhop staff were helpful in so many ways. They accommodated our room change request (to have a separate sitting area where we could set up our son's... More

When I arrived yesterday, I couldn't help notice how beautiful The Fairfax at Embassy Row was. But that was only the beginning. What makes this place special are the employes, from the front desk staff, especially Quantina, the bellman, the dining room staff and the housecleaning. Everyone is so warm, friendly and very helpful. Quatina absolutely made my stay delightful.... More

Well located traditional hotel with smaller rooms but the fit and finish is good; the team very friendly and accommodating. We booked on short notice and got a great rate plus a room upgrade on check in. Great gym. Nice restaurant. A little startled by the overnight parking charge (seems to be a universal problem in DC hotels) but to... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Fairfax recently. It is a lovely hotel with extraordinary service. I was in a standard room and it was fine - not overly impressive and on the smaller side since the hotel is older. But the room did not feel old - everything was well appointed and very clean. The service was first class... More

My family and I stayed in the Fairfax during Thanksgiving weekend in 2014 and were all pleasantly surprised all around. The staff was extremely friendly, courteous and helpful starting from the valets to housekeeping service. It is a historic building and still maintains that overall look and feel. The rooms are quite spacious and beds were extremely comfortable. The neighborhood... More
