"Lovely hotel with great service"
I have stayed at the Fairfax several times for business meetings. There are many nice hotels in and around Dupont Circle but this one has exceptional service and a wonderful staff. We'll definitely be going back and I would choose it again even if traveling for pleasure.
"This a great hotel makes you feel special!!"
My girlfriend and I stayed there Saturday 24 January. The location was perfect, staff was super friendly, got terrific price, on hotwire. The homemade brownies on the way out, Saturday night was the perfect touch. I highly recommend this hotel!!
John at reception was friendly and so helpful. Even though we are locals, we stayed at the hotel due to a power failure. We arrived after dark with an infant in tow. Everyone tried to help us out, especially John. Overall it was a great stay and we actually went home feeling refreshed!
"When can I return...'!"
We stayed at the Fairfax in December 2014. We arrived late at night and as soon as the car pulled up in front of the hotel I knew we were in for a treat! We were greeted by the most friendly doorman and this continued at the front desk (although I was slightly distracted by the wonderful décor and Christmas decorations!). We were lucky enough to have a suite. It was lovely: clean, spacious and comfortable. The bed was big with the most comfortable mattress and pillows. The bathroom was a bit pokey but always clean. We had a TV in each room and an iPod docking station in the bedroom. Lots of interesting reading material as well such as Vogue magazine and luxury hotel books. We had free Wi-Fi as Starwood members but I'm not sure of the standard Wi-Fi facilities. My only complaint about the room was the noise of a water heater....a constant hum all night which disturbed my sleep slightly but nothing a pair of earplugs couldn't drown out. There was also a grumpy cleaner who scowled every time I saw her. Breakfast was delicious. As a Starwood member we were entitled to free Continental breakfast which included pastries, fresh fruit and porridge. We paid extra for a hot breakfast a couple of times which was delicious. The breakfast staff were always friendly and the views of the embassy across the street always kept me entranced. We also ate at the restaurant one evening and enjoyed the room service. As lovely as the food was we did have a slight blip in that the wrong food was delivered to our room but this problem was quickly rectified. If eating here please please please have the crabcakes....words cannot describe how gorgeous they are!! And of course, I'll never forget the freshly made cookies in the lobby every evening...delicious!! It's a bit of walk from the hotel to Pennsylvania Ave which was our base for the trip but it's a pleasant walk and DuPont circle is just around the corner with plenty of shops, restaurants etc. Overall we had a very pleasant stay at the Fairfax. We met some amazing people from the bellboys to the bar staff and were treated like royalty! One of the bellboys in particular would always come and chat to us and ask us about our day and give recommendations on places to visit. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to be able to return in the future.
"Can't understand why this nice hotel doesn't do much of anything to be a greener hotel'"
Why aren't they even a bronze rating on Trip Advisor's Green Hotel Program'' So many hotels in DC (and hundreds or other locations) are well rated by Trip Advisor for the steps they've taken to offer sustainable food options, improve indoor air quality, reduce their energy water and trash waste. I will not stay here again until they make an effort to be a better corporate citizen.
