"Great for Your Grandparents or an Expensive Wedding Party"
This place is kind of old school elegant -- but mostly that just means lots of wood paneling and extremely helpful, friendly staff. There is not posh lobby nor lavish tiled gym. It is a great location for a wedding party --- tons of restaurants nearby. For healthy people, easy walk to Dupont Circle or Georgetown($7 cab ride). But honestly, it's just kind of boring, expensive and it's true --- lots of hidden charges. If you want to skip the $40 a day parking fee, just over toward Dupont, there is a cheaper lot but you can only go in after 5.p.m.
"Wonderful hotel, but with hidden charges"
I loved the Embassy Row hotel at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. However, I was annoyed to discover I had a $9.95 daily service charge. There was no mention of this when I made the reservation. Hidden charges make customers unhappy, we feel duped. Customers have the right to know the price of what we buy, when we buy it, not later.
"Great stay at the fairfax"
We had an amazing time in Washington and the Fairfax was ideally situated, with great gym and comfortable rooms. The staff were really friendly and helpful and I cannot fault anything with the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay at the Fairfax.
"Elegant Five-Star, Small Rooms"
This is a lovely traditional hotel. No pounding techno-pop or hipster vibe. And for me that's a good thing. Everything a five-star should be, with all the extras including a coffeemaker in the room (many five-stars don't have them). The breakfast buffet was nice - love all that snowy white linen! Only issue with this hotel is the small rooms. Mine was beautifully appointed and decorated but quite petite. I asked at the front desk if all the rooms were small and I was told yes, some were even smaller than mine. But good price and value considering the location and amenities.
The staff, location and ambience were all excellent. The hotel exceeded my expectations, beginning with a prompt check-in to my room even though I had arrived early. I look forward to staying here during my next visit to Washington DC.
