"Nice small hotel"
Excellent location, very closed to Dupont Circle station and cafe. Room is very spacious even for three people. The bedding is very good, room is quiet so we all can sleep well. Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful! I could not ask more.
The hotel is charming and in a great location. The room was cute with a view over duct work in the alley. But, it was quiet. There was not a ventilation fan in the bathroom so it was extremely muggy. We wanted to sleep a bit in the AM but the maid barged in the room even with a Do Not Disturb on the door. The biggest problem that we encountered was when a charge of $25 dollars appeared for the internet. I joined the Starwood program specifically to avoid that. While signing on to the Internet we were a bit dubious. My husband called down to guest relations and they assured us that we would not be charged. We were charged and spent a great deal of time trying to straighten it out. Actually we still aren't positive that it won't appear on our bill. Wanted to like it but there are just too many other great options to chance staying there again.
"Older but Elegant"
This hotel sits in a great location not far from Dupont Circle, so easy Metro access. It is not hip like some of its newer neighbors, but offers well maintained if smallish rooms for a good price (for some reason the SPG Breakfast Plus rates are always much lower than any other rate I have seen there). The lobby is tiny, with not even much of a reception area, but it is functional. The rooms are on the small side, and even with SPG Platinum status I have never seen anything that looks like an upgrade. The bed is very comfortable, and the rooms I have had are quiet. One nice plus is the breakfast buffet in the 1st floor restaurant- a nice selection of hot and cold items. The staff is always helpful and friendly.
This was my 3rd stay here. Great Hotel in a wonderful location only a few minutes from the Dupont Cir. Metro station. We are always treated with a great deal of respect. I must single out one of the staff...Sonnelle. We stayed here in March for my birthday...she was at the desk at check in. Remembered me from our short phone conversation. She greets everyone with a big smile and great attitude! I went back the last weekend in June and she still was able to call me by name...without looking at the computer! All the staff is great, but she stands out above the rest!! This has become my go to Hotel in D.C. "I shall return!"
"A beautiful option in the heart of DC"
My boyfriend and I recently spent a long weekend in Washington DC. The Fairfax is very convenient and surrounded by gorgeous embassy buildings. Our room was well lit and very comfortable. Check in and check out were fast. Our only issues were:1) we were asked at checking if we wanted a newspaper. We said yes but there was no newspaper the first day. This was subsequently remedied. 2) we were billed for 2 wifi connections even though the rules say one sign up suffices for various devices. I complained and both charges were eliminated from the final bill. So all in all it was a very good experience and we would stay there again.
