We found the fairfax to be a beautiful hotel with nice spacious room. Great location with plenty of good restaurants and pubs nearby and close to the subway. And lots of fabulous buildings nearby (embassy row). The staff were very pleasant. Our only complaint is that twice we mentioned to staff that that the room next to ours (maybe a boiler room) was very noisy. Both times we were told there would be someone up to check it out but this never happened.
"Not Luxury at all!"
1. You stand in long line waiting for check in while blocking the entrance. 2. Valet parking only costing $53 including tax per night. 3. Nothing in the room pints to luxury. Small, old and suffocating. 4. Food is good. Food service personnel Pitt and efficient. 5. Far from the Mall and museums. 50 min walk. Maybe good for visiting embassies' 6. Spotty wifi costing $13 per night.
"Classic, Elegant, Superb Service"
I stayed at this hotel in September, 2014. From the minute I walked in the door I was greeted by friendly doormen, checked in quickly and brought up to a wonderfully cozy room. This hotel is old school Washington ' none of that new-age industrialist see-through bathroom nonsense. My room had a view of the Washington Monument, a lavish queen-size bed with delicious down comforters and the worlds most comfortable pillows. It's Edwardian style ' so lots of crown molding and watercolor paintings of Washington,D.C. - and the bathroom was perfectly appointed. Loads of hand towels, wash cloths and bath towels stacked nicely ' a soaker tub and huge terry cloth robes. The room service food was delicious ' served discreetly and quietly by an extremely well-mannered waiter. I had the flu - so I needed to stay an extra day - and was slow to check out. No problem. This hotel is all about service. Also, it is in the absolute best part of town. I will make this my regular ' BRAVO.
"A Wondeful Experience"
The Fairfax Hotel is a wonderful hotel. Our organization has had board meetings there for the past 3 years and we love it there. For meeting planners, the staff are amazing and great to work with! You will not be disappointed!
"Great 24hr Stay in DC"
I stayed at the Fairfax on business for a single night, where I did not book the hotel. A 30 min night time walk had me in front of The White House, and a little further to Memorial park etc. The room was well appointed, and the breakfast was charming and well attended. Yes, paid for Wifi may be a pain, but on a business expense the process of adding it to the room was seamless. However, the bar was a great end to the night, and was good to sit and enjoy a few cocktails before bed, trying to get used to the time zone jump quickly with booze.
