"Fine, old Dupont Circle Hotel"
Stayed here two nights during the big 2016 snowstorm. Attractive, even elegant-looking, older hotel 1 1/2 blocks from Q Street Dupont Circle Metro. Quality is quite good for the price. Note: price does not include breakfast (fine with me, lots of great choices just a block or two away) and does not include Wi-Fi. If you read the room description carefully, it says "WiFi available". So, another $12.99 a day for that (WiFi is free in lobby area only). When I complained about this to front desk, they "compted" it (free) while pointing difference between "included" and "available." I'll come back, I liked the way this place feels.
Everyone at the Fairfax went out of their way to be sure we were happy with our room, and we even got a call from the manager and the desk clerk to see if there was anything we needed. Although the room was not huge, it was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and had top-of-the-line towels and amenities.
"Elegant, classic hotel in the heart of DC. Highly recommended."
Having lived in Metro DC and worked in DuPont Circle for many years, I always wondered about what a night in the Fairfax would be like. Now living away, I got the chance on a recent visit back to DC at a stunningly reasonable hotel rate. The Fairfax is simply one of those elegant, upscale hotels with large classic, well appointed rooms, comfortable beds and many amenities. For the middle of DC, the rooms were very quiet. The hotel staff was friendly, attentive and responsive as befitted such a refined setting without the haughtiness of so many upscale hotels. The Fairfax is situated in the heart of downtown DC (a block from DuPont Circle) and many excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance. Metro is 2 blocks away so all sightseeing is accessible by a short subway ride or taxi if you are so inclined.
"Not a fancy hotel"
Found a good rate for this hotel on a Saturday night. It is in a fairly decent Dupont Circle location and had a 4.5 star rating on the booking site. Was immediately upcharged for a second bed upon arrival. Told it was an upgrade to a suite but was simply a 2 bed room. The room was fairly basic with slightly used furnishings. The TV was very fuzzy and did not work well. Also, there was no room service. They have a restaurant with no one in it, but for some reason don't deliver food. The common areas were clean. The staff were ok. There are much better options for the same price.
"Well Priced for such High Quality, but use Priceline or Hotels Tonight"
This is an amazing out old hotel that has been redone just enough that is comfortable, but still has a ton of character. The walls are thick so there are no noise issues and the bed and linens are great. You cannot beat the location. It is on Embassy Row, and just minutes from Dupont Circle and the Farmer's Market on Sundays. We walked to Georgetown several times given how close it was. I do wish the internet in the room was free.
