I recently completed a two night stay at The Fairfax on a great AAA Hot Deal rate that included deluxe (buffet) breakfast.
As a Starwood Preferred Guest platinum member, I was also upgraded to a top floor deluxe suite located at the end of a hallway. The hotel was renovated in 2008 and the furnishing certainly reflect that: clean and well-maintained. Also, the hotel provides Remede products in the bathroom, my personal favorite. The very comfortable bedding, combined with the quiet room location provided two great nights of sleep. However, the room location did create some minor inconveniences: (1) the water temperature in the shower occasionally needed 3-4 minutes to warm up and (2) the wireless connection in the room was spotty/dropped out in some corners of the suite.
Breakfast served in the Capitol Room offered a standard, if not inspired, selection of food (hot dishes, cereals, fruits/yogurts, and pastries). The servers made it a point to remember guests' seating preferences and drink choices at breakfast, a nice touch!
Perhaps the best feature of the Fairfax is its easily accessible to most of what Washington DC has to offer. Being in Dupont Circle, the hotel is two blocks away from a Metro station and a brisk 20 minute/1 mile walk to the National Mall and Georgetown. Moreover, Dupont Circle is a vibrant neighborhood with a variety of dining, drinking, and shopping options.
Overall, the Fairfax is a solid option when visiting Washington D.C. and would be my first choice whenever I return.
