The Fairfax is unbelievably located around the corner from Dupont Circle (great bagel breakfast place, drugstore, shopping) and The Phillips Collection (art museum), it is clean, beautiful, reasonably priced (except in the dining room which is pretty standard for hotels and why we had breakfast around the corner) and so great I can't wait to go back again!

This hotel is first rate with lovely, traditional Georgian room style. It has a history in the Washington D. C. area dating back to the 1920s. It is obviously updated to current standards with comfortable, lush bedding and large marble bathrooms. We enjoyed that there was great seating in our room including two chairs and a love seat.

I stayed here years ago when it was the Ritz Carlton. It is still as charming and the service was impeccable. The location can not be beat! I will definitely make the Fairfax Embassy Row my first choice when in DC.

Very good comfortable hotel. Lovely traditional room. Be sure to ask for room with a view of the street. Fantastic bed. Very good staff and service. Hotel need to do something with the 2 restaurants and really modernize and update them - they really are depressing and no one uses them.

The Fairfax is an elegant, comfortable hotel in a great location. I've stayed there several times and enjoyed the facilities, though the exercise room is not especially well equipped.

This is a nice hotel surrounded by embassies, and only a few blocks from DuPont Circle. Plenty of restaurant and bar options within walking distance. The rooms are spacious enough. They have typical amenities. There are no balconies. I liked the temperature gauge in the shower.

We had a great stay at the Fairfax for a long weekend couple getaway. The location is in a quieter neighborhood (although DC is not a quiet city). It is not near any big attractions and you either Walk 1.5 miles or take transportation (which is easily available). The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and showers... More
