I was attending oral arguments at the Supreme Court this month and was only in the city for one night and was delighted to see that the Fairfax was offering the best rate of any Starwood property in the city that evening. Unfortunately, harsh weather that day caused cancellations of 3 flights i was booked on, and when I called the hotel to let them know I might not arrive till after midnight, they assured me a wonderful room would be waiting. I managed to arrive at midnight, exhausted after an all-day travel ordeal, and reception could not have been more welcoming. The delightful Sonnelle went out of her way to place me in a spectacular, spacious top-floor room and to make sure my every need was met. She also suggested a superb dinner spot (Kramerbooks) just a few blocks from the hotel and still open at that late hour. The hotel is magnificent--the former DC residence of at least 3 former Presidents and Vice Presidents and just about every other famous politician or celebrity who has ever lived in DC. The location is in the tony Embassy side of Dupont Circle, just a few minutes walk from the Metro. The feel of the hotel is glamour and grandeur, elegant, rich, and perfectly tasteful and stately. Breakfast is served in the hotel's lovely Capitol Room. The entire staff is welcoming and professional, and they all--especially the wonderful Sonnelle--will make you want to return again and again. I just wish my stay could have been for more than 1 night.
