The Fairfax at Embassy Row, Washington, D.C.
Ranked #74 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This hotel is a Luxury Collection Sheraton Brand and it is every bit of that. Truly high end ambiance, rooms and bathrooms tops in every way. In perfect location right by Dupont Circle and surrounded by every embassy on the planet within walking distance. All the sights of the city within a short walk too.
Nothing bad to say about this hotel other than they charge $50 for parking your car as they only have valet. BUT to be fare, every hotel in DC is this way. There simply is no parking for free anywhere.

This hotel was wonderful! The staff were always smiling and presented a friendly welcome each time you passed through the front door. Check-in was quick and professional. I felt welcomed immediately.
The hotel floors are very interesting in that they are a bit of a maze...in a good way it gave the hotel a sense of charm. My room was a bit small, but well maintained and clean. The TV was a bit strange...most of the channels were scrambled...oh well, I did not travel to Washington to watch TV! Bathroom shower was hot and lots of water pressure. Room was clean and no trouble with noise. The cleaning staff were everywhere and always said hi.
Hotel is located within walking distance of the metro and lots of restaurants and pubs.
Did not eat @ the hotel....the bar staff were friendly and the beer was cold!

Stayed for a total 6 nights and had no complaints. Check out was a breeze.
Highly recommend to others.

Second visit here. Love the understated elegance of the hotel and the very comfortable beds. Close to the metro, and a bunch of great places to eat. You would be hard pressed to find one person who worked here that wasn't courteous or hospitable. Hope to return soon!

The staff here really enjoy their jobs and it shows. The location is nice - very beautiful and quiet with the metro very close by. The room was small - view nothing special but it was clean and very "old world" Washington.

Stayed 3 days in area. Front desk immensely courteous on late (pm) arrival. Room overlooking street, which was busy but room was quiet. Room spacious by any DC standard. Hotel staff (concierge especially!) gets high marks for being so welcoming on arrival. Doorman always asks if you need help or information. Walking distance to AGU (where I was visiting) and DuPont Circle and its great restaurants; must see Phillips Gallery across the street. Looking forward to my next visit to DC.

Room Tip: If you have any question, just ask the concierge. He was terrific. If you have local recommendations...

I can't imagine the reviews praising the service at this hotel are from actual people who have stayed in the hotel. The problems with service here were not confined to a single person or singular incident, rather, they seemed to be systemic in nature. First, the front desk personnel LOST the luggage from a member of our party in the short time and distance from the car to the lobby door...they totally lost the bags. Secondly, the serveres at the restaurant attached to the hotel were rude to several members of our party as well as "forgetting" multiple items that were ordered. Additionally, we called down to the front desk to help us out with an item we forgot. We were told politely that someone would be up shortly with the item. 36 hours later the item, of course, never arrived. Even more laziness on the part of the front desk: they failed to give out the "welcome bags" that the bridge and groom arranged for their wedding guests. I shouldn't even bother mentioning the fact that the maid service failed to refill simple things like coffee when they cleaned the room, but I think it's important to note just how lazy every aspect of customer service is at the hotel. Also, while not directly related to a specific worker at the hotel, be prepared to pay $13 PER DAY for Internet use. Having to pay such fees so that I can conduct business while away from home is unacceptable and a far cry from providing exceptional service to your guests. There are many hotels to choose from in the area, I would highly recommend choosing one other than Fairfax.

I stayed here as part of a convention, so it was both business and pleasure, and I could not have been more pleased.

The hotel itself is lovely with tasteful historic decor. The staff is friendly and always accommodating-they have a more than ample number of doormen to greet you, answer questions, help with luggage and taxis, etc. The concierge desk also helped with arrangements with professional efficiency. If early morning traffic noise bothers you, be sure to ask for a room on an upper floor.

It's within an easy walking block from a few shops and lots of restaurants on DuPont Circle.
