"It was a wonderful 4th of July...despite the rain"
We went to DC specially for the 4th of July and luckily got this beautiful hotel at the last moment. Location could not be better: on Embassy Road! and two short blocks from Dupont Circle metro station. Several lines of metro pass by there and you can make multiple connections to take you to the highlights of the city: monuments, museums, etc.
"A pleasant respite"
Spent the night in DC with family to visit National Geographic Museum. The Fairfax was definitely a more fairly priced hotel compared to most. Also had a great deal that included valet parking for the car. The staff was efficient & professional, they kindly upgraded us to a suite. The building is historic, don't expect giant rooms, they embrace the age of the building & work with it well. Our room was reasonably appointed, good sized bath, very comfy king bed & pillows, complimentary water. I was a little surprised to find there was no soda machine of any kind anywhere in the building. Had to either go to bar or neighborhood store, not very convenient for my young son. The décor is suitably antique & befitting the age & style of the building. There are certainly some places where its a bit worn, but not a dealbreaker. The neighborhood is very attractive & safe. You are within a 10 minute walk to a several good restaurants. Its just a short cab ride to most attractions & the metro stop is nearby as well.
"Everything I wanted"
Our one night stay was perfect. The beds could not have been more comfortable, the a/c and tv worked great. The staff was super helpful, our room was clean and well supplied. The hotel is classy and in a superb location with all the great restaurants, shops and metro stop within walking distance. We enjoyed walking embassy row and taking in the neighborhood sights. Our room was a little small and our view was obscured by another building but these things were of little importance to us. We did not dine on site but the accommodations to do so looked nice. Parking with hotel would have been $45 so we opted to secure a garage nearby for much less and take a taxi to our hotel. A refreshing change from a chain hotel. I did much research to find our perfect stay and I'm so glad we chose the Fairfax, I would highly recommend this hotel to tourists and business people alike.
Overall excellent service. We stayed a whole week with a delegation of 15 members. The staff was always ready and available. Every each detailed was covered with efficiency. High quality management from Ms. Sonnelle Gonzalez and her staff.
"Sophisticated, with a few Slight Issues"
Located near the bustling Dupont Circle metro stop and countless embassies, this historic building makes a handsome first impression upon arrival. The lobby area and check in are intimately-scaled, giving a residential feel to things (I think this building originally was an apartment building). The front desk staff was a pleasure to work with, for check-in/out to some fairly basic questions I had about billing and hotel facilities. I also got to watch them exhibit grace under pressure at one point as they dealt with angry guests who were wildly (and unjustifiably, in my opinion) dissatisfied with their room. The rooms themselves did have some challenges, though are not the fault of the hotel. The building is roughly shaped like the letter W. The entrance and lobby are in the point at the bottom, and the rooms are in the arms that fan out from there. My colleague and I had spacious rooms, tucked into the corners, which led to odd layouts. For example, my room (307) was large, and had two closets. The room was sort of long and narrow, so the bed, by default, had to be right next to the door, which allowed hall noises to be disruptive to sleep. The large flat-screen TV, by default, had to be perpendicular to the bed to fit on the dresser, which meant turning it sharply to view TV (and the maid, correctly, reset it when she came through, which made me have to turn it again). This is all related to architecture, which is difficult to change. Other things were more fixable. My two closets were down a little hall and had absolutely no light in or near them. I used my phone flashlight to look for things in my bag. One of the lights over the bathroom sink were burned out. My colleague's room (310) had a lovely sofa at the foot of his bed, but it had distressing staining on the yellow upholstery. I think a bit of freshening up might be in order, ASAP. Despite all these quibbles, I really liked this hotel. The bed, despite placement in room, was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and had good products in it. The location and staff were all a big plus. A very good option if you want/need to be in this area.
