Thoroughly enjoyed my three night stay at the Fairfax on business. Not a single complaint, one the bets hotels in DC, on par with Sofitel. Location is close to Dupont Circle, my favourite DC area. Service was outstanding throughout. Painless check-in process, got upgraded to Suite as SPG Gold Member. Everyone was helpful, from front desk personnel to concierge and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fairfax. The room was spacious, clean and elegant. Every staff member was courteous and welcoming. We would definitely stay there again. It is very close to DuPont Circle and the metro, a great location for a stay in DC.

We stayed at the Fairfax November 15-20 celebrating our anniversary. I booked this room through Hotwire not knowing in advance which property we would end up staying at. Upon arrival they could not have been nicer and to our surprise we ended up in a two room suite. Each time we entered the lobby we were greeted warmly. Peter, the... More

I stayed here for a few nights for business. The check-in was ok - I note the clerk wasn't all that friendly but I talked to another clerk the next day and she was great - very friendly and courteous. Positives: The room was very charming - the rooms were as depicted in the hotel's photos. The thermostat worked very... More

I have been staying at the Fairfax for years. I consider it my home when I am in Washington. The property is aging but elegant. Accomodations are very comfortable, and food is excellent. The bar is cozy and inviting. But the best part of this hotel is the staff. The staff have been with them for years, some for decades,... More

I stayed at the Fairfax for two nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful, first rate service. When my original room only had a shower, they happily moved me to another room with a bathtub. There was some sort of temperature governor on the faucet that was set too low, so a repairman was sent up to fix the... More

The hotel staff were very friendly, and the location near Dupont Circle was excellent. I'd give it 4.5 if I could. I had a room facing the street, 2nd floor, and had no trouble sleeping with the window open. The rooms were of decent size - only thing I missed was a bathtub rather than just a gigantic shower. :)... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a short business trip. The location couldn't have been more convenient: about 15 minutes from Regan National, 1.5 blocks from the Metro, on the very charming Embassy row, steps away from Dupont Circle.
