The Fairfax is a beautiful hotel that is well run and cared for with a gracious staff. My wife and I loved the location of this hotel. It is just a couple of blocks from the Metro stop at Dupont Circle. It is easy walking distance to a great variety of restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
We had an early flight arriving on a Saturday morning but they were able to get us into a room even though we were early. Looking at the little fire escape map on the back of the door in our room (yes, I am a fun date), it looked as though we had one of the smallest rooms. The room was also on the back looking out over a nondescript courtyard. Yet, we still felt like we were in the lap of luxury. The ceilings are high so the small square footage didn't really seem like that big of deal. The room was very quiet and the bed incredibly comfortable. Granted, my wife and I don't get away from our kids all that often so maybe we're easy to please but we very much enjoyed the place.
The staff treated us very well and were pleasant without being intrusive. We stayed for two nights. On the second we went to the bar off of the lobby. The music over the speakers was a little odd but the bar is such a throwback to an earlier time in DC with lots of wood and comfortable chairs that it just added to the luxury feel of the place. We would stay here again in an instant.
