Amazing value. We felt extremely lucky and appreciative to buy a room at the Fairfax on priceline without knowing this is what we would get. This is 4-5 star hotel. I would not pay the $400/night full price, but I would pay $180/night. We paid so much less that I am embarrassed to post it. The hotel is next to... More

If you want to stay in the city at a great location (3 blocks from Georgetown, walking distance to Dupont Circle and the Metro, walking distance to a variety of great restaurants, Starbucks on the corner, CVS on the another corner) then The Fairfax at Embassy Row is the place. But please, don't tell everyone. This Luxury Collection Hotel is... More

It is great to stay in a hotel that is not "cookie cutter", this old hotel is very nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We spent two nights in DC and were close enough to enjoy the sights. I stayed in this hotel over 45 years ago on vacation, it was fun to see it again and the... More

We spent two nights at the hotel during a weekend trip to Washington. The hotel's location very near Dupont Circle is very convenient and a good starting point to explore the city. Unfortunately the hotel seems a bit dated and what others may describe as charming I would consider too old-fashioned. The room itself was very spacious, but fixtures and... More

Great location and very professional staff. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Hotel is very quiet and gives the feeling that it is smaller than it actually is. An old building, but very well maintained.

I stayed for almost two weeks while in the process of relocating and the entire staff made it feel like my home away from home. It is a lovely hotel and reminds me of staying in the old Mayflower Hotel when I was a child. However, it has been updated and is a very comfortable place to stay. The room... More
