We were only here for one night, but would have liked to stay longer. For that reason we will be back. The combination of accommodation, quality service and location make this a must for a visit to Washington. All the staff were helpful and courteous, they made my first visit to Washington a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
"Visit to DC for World Affairs Council Annual Conference"
Great location with spacious and quiet rooms. Beautifully decorated too. Staff were polite and professional but constrained at peak check in and check out times. A great location and facility to host business conferences.
"Lovely hotel, impeccable service"
We stayed for 3 nights and could not have been more satisfied. Rama and the other distinguished looking bellman were so friendly as we came and went. We had to eat in twice due to medical issues, and room service was delicious with lovely presentation. Our room was spacious and elegant. The hotel was quiet. The location is terrific with good proximity to the metro, to shopping in Georgetown, and to many types of restaurants, including several ethnic restaurants. CVS is a block away, open 24 hours a day. Starbucks is also a block away. Save room for late afternoon cookies in the hotel lobby. Compared to other DC hotels, a great value. Only thing that could be better would be free WiFi. We will return.
"Old world charm...."
I stayed at Fairfax for a couple of nights during a recent trip to DC. I don't like huge chain hotels where everything looks the same, so finding a smaller option was a great relief for me. Yes, rooms look the same here, too, but the hotel has the old world charm:) Pros: - great & VERY friendly service - rooms were clean and had enough space - windows open (5cm only, but they do) - nice/quiet neighborhood - very close to Le Pain Quotidien - good organic/local breakfast options Cons: - a water heater was in the room making a buzz most of the night - not sure if that's the case in every room - location of the bed - across from the door did not make sense (light form the corridor) - but again, it cannot be the case in every room The hotel was OK & I will probably stay there again as it is much smaller/quieter/with pleasant gentle music, which for me is a much better option vs Marriott/Sheraton/Hyatt or any other chain monster....
"Avoid: Poor service, run down."
I just checked in here and was astonished to overhear how poorly they were treating another guest. The young, slavic woman at the front desk was very coldly responding to a guest whose entire plan had been upended by an error that the woman behind the desk blithely disregarded. My bellman just left me with my (heavy, large) bags. The room has a loud buzzing sound coming from behind the walls. This is a suite and it sounds like I'm under a motor. The carpets, chairs, etc...are quite dated, threadbare, dirty, etc... Very poor impression so far.
