A fantastic location. I am in D.C. for business on a regular basis and I have stayed all around the beltway - and, the Fairfax Embassy Row is the best. The rooms are well apportioned. Very clean. There is a classic elegance to the common spaces. And, the scale (the hotel is small) of the hotel makes it a very... More

After pointing it out they removed the charge and printed a correct bill.

While we're happy to read that any billing discrepancies were taken care of before you left, it is concerning that there still may be some unresolved issues. Although the hold is taken off immediately by us, your bank can take longer to release its hold. We’re confident that this is the case, however if this charge does not clear, please... More

The Fairfax at Embassy Row is now better than before. The Fairfax is currently the best managed Starwood property. I arrived at the end of August 2012 for a Saturday & Sunday stay, and the Front Office Manager Mr. E. Ersoy greeted me himself. The staff has been professionally trained by Mr. Ersoy to protect the security of its guests... More

We just finished a weeklong vacation stay at the Fairfax at Embassy Row. The service and staff were outstanding and friendly from the first moment we arrived.

I stayed at the Fairfax the September 1st through the 6th; it was pretty busy due to Labor Day Weekend; however, overall it was a good experience and I would stay here again.

I spent three nights with my family (my wife and two kids) and although our expectations, having regard to previous reviews, were high, they have far from being disappointed.
