Spent two nights this past weekend with my wife at the Fairfax. We had booked it via Hotwire so the choice of hotel was not known till booking. We were very pleased with the location. The staff greeted us warmly and was helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The room was large and clean. I would definitely return except for... More

Finally... a Washington D.C. hotel worth its price. I don't use words like "lovely" or "cozy" very often to describe a hotel but my room was a pleasant surprise. From the staff who really seem to enjoy their jobs as much as the neighborhood, to the rooms and restaurants that are so inviting, I encourage you to consider the Fairfax... More

The Fairfax is an outstanding hotel in a prime Embassy Row/Dupont Circle location, near the Dupont Circle Metro, the Phillips Collection and some of DC's best restaurants. Our room was excellent with all the amenities one would expect. I was disappointed the hotel's own restaurant - once The Jockey Club - was not open, but the hotel serves an excellent... More

Your summation of just what The Fairfax at Embassy Row strives to be is absolutely perfect! We’re very grateful that you’ve shared not only your experience, but also gave many wonderful tips to other guests. Our dining options have gone through a transition of sorts, and 2100 Prime has now become the Capitol Room where we exclusively serve breakfast. For... More

When they tell you there is free WiFi they mean in the lobby. You will pay exorbitantly to access WiFi in your room. I would have booked a less expensive room had I known they were lying about the services they offered.

Reading your review has left us very concerned indeed. We are not sure where you received the information regarding our WiFi access, but we can assure you that it is clearly stated on our website that there is a charge for in-room access. Additionally, our staff is well-versed in the appointments of our accommodations and would have no reason to... More

Recently my husband and I stayed to the Fairfax and had a wonderful time.

This hotel was historical and beautiful; the room was much, much larger than expected. Comfy bed, pretty area, a lot of shops/bars/restaurants in walking distance. Bed was exceptional. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here recently. The entire staff was wonderful. The food was a bit pricey but it was delicious. The tomato soup and grilled cheese was simply yummy. It was close to the subway and within walking distance to everything. If I return, I would consider the Fairfax again.

I liked the Fairfax, a very nice hotel close to Dupont Circle. Check in was efficient and very quick and my room was ready early in the day. The room itself was fairly large--nothing special but a big comfortable bed. There was a mini bar but for some reason it was not stocked. I was there for a conference and... More
