I selected The Fairfax because it was almost 50% lower in price compared to other business hotels in the capital. So I was fully expecting (and resigned to) an adequate but tired room for my brief visit. How wrong I was! My room was spacious and bright, with a view of the National Cathedral and distant Rosslyn across the Potomac. The furnishings were of the elegant "colonial" variety popular in DC. The hallways were beautiful with high quality carpeting, crown moldings and fine art prints of Washington sites--in short, true luxury. I used to live in this Kalorama district north of Dupont Circle, and love it for its restaurants, museums, beautiful residential architecture and pleasant neighborhood strolls. In the past I've stayed at the Cosmos Club across the street, where I have privileges. So I knew and appreciated the pretty neighborhood, just not this particular hotel. Now having stayed there, I have to say this will be at the top of my list, particularly if I can get the same low rate. I did park my car with the hotel valet--at a steep forty bucks a day plus tip. But this is after all near the center of the city, so I wasn't that surprised. In any case, I wouldn't normally have a car when staying in Washington.
