“Love the location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Part of the Starwood collection, comfortable, well priced. The absolute best reason to choose the Fairfax is its terrific location. DuPont Circle, the Phillips Collection, Kramer Books, Blocks and blocks of stunning homes and Embassies from all over the world. It's close to the subway, and all the major sights. Oh, and a block away from great restaurants and bars.

We stayed here for three nights in June (actually our third stay). We keep coming back because the rooms are so spacious for the price. We had a deluxe suite for mine $50 more than a regular room at most hotels. With two boys, space is always our primary need. Our suite had two sofabeds, a table for four and lots of room to move around (or play w/ trucks). We also love the classic decor of hotels like the Fairfax...give us that over the modern stuff any day!

We frequently stay at Omni hotels, and the Fairfax is similar in its style and especially service and friendliness. Front desk and door staff make you feel so welcome and like you are a guest, not a customer.

Neighborhood is also a plus...lots of great food options and services. We get to DC a couple times a year, and the Fairfax will definitely be where we return.

Top drawer hotel. Lovely rooms and superior staff!! Yummy food .. Best ever! Was there for a long wedding weekend. Super helpful concierge for tickets to trolley and events!! Close to some fun casual eateries. I can't say enough about how wonderful this hotel is. There is a gym on the second floor for those who need to work out while vacationing!!

We plugged 2 cell phones into 2 different chargers. Once charged, we removed our phones and went out. Upon our return, after the room had been serviced, only 1 cord remained! When the management looked into the problem, they determined that the housekeeping staff knew nothing about it - big surprise!!! No further explanation was offered and no remuneration. We were allowed to pick through the lost and found for a substitute charging cord!
I would never knowingly stay at a hotel, no matter how nice, if my belongings are not secure.

My daughters and I just spent two nights at the Fairfax. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel and staff. The room was exceptionally spacious, spotless and comfortable. The hotel itself was nestled in a quiet neighborhood (Embassy Row) within quick walking distance to the subway, restaurants and stores. Make sure to eat at the DC Cafe, which is only a block from the hotel ~ excellent food and service and reasonably priced. Would definately stay here again.

I have stayed in numerous hotels during law enforcement memorial week in DC and this hotel tops them all! After a slight mix up on rooms (which the staff handled with no problems) we had a great 3 day stay. Rooms are very nice, staff was very professional and the hotel itself sits on quite embassy row away from all the traffic. Only a block and half away from the redline which drops you at judiciary square. I will stay at this hotel again next year!
Only 1 thing.......soda machine! No stores close and only the ice machine in the hallway. :(

I stayed her for almost a week and found the location to be close to restaurants and the metro station. The hotel itself is a bit dated and the platinum perks are a bit antiquated. There is no club level room or free drink perks ect offered at check in for SPG Platinum members. A regular upgraded room is just slightly bigger than a regular room. I requested a better room after the third night stay and was upgraded to a Jr. suite. The suite had a separate living room but a single vanity. The wifi is free and there is a self catering business center. The Concierge is very knowledgeable and friendly. In fact, so is the rest of the staff that we encountered. This hotel stay didn't really remind me of other luxury collection I have stayed at overseas but I understand that the expectations are a bit different in the USA. Overall it was a moderately priced hotel for DC and I enjoyed my stay. The beds are fantastic and you will sleep like a champ.

Room Tip: Make sure to get the best upgrade possible for more room and comfort.
