I was really impressed. It was my first visit and I found it ideal in almost every way. I would definitely recommend it and would like to stay there again.Comment of H. Nigel , United States the 2016-01-30
Stayed there twice now. We had a group and both times standing in the lobby waiting for rooms to be churned out. This took over an hour each time. Had called and double checked before arrival both times, to no avail. Breakfast is now a fast version buffet style with less offerings. It is expensive for minimalist offerings. Location is great , staff very helpful. Rooms very comfortable and quiet. Du Pont Circle near by and a great location for many things.
"A historic hotel on Embassy Row"
What a great historic hotel on Embassy Row. The Fairfax Hotel has all the noted features you might encounter as you check competitive hotels in the DuPont Circle area of Washington DC. I had called to let the front desk know that we would arrive very late and was advised that it would be noted. Upon arrival the checkin went smoothly as they had been expecting me and the lovely missus. We received a quiet room on the 6th floor. The bellman took care of our luggage as we headed directly to the restaurant. They were about to close but prepared and served us meals that were fantastic and filling. We would dine there again during the week. Our room was ready and clean with a large king size bed. Everything was in order. During our stay we had one confused issue. The thermostat to the heating and cooling system did not appear to function. We requested to have maintenance take a look and within a couple of minutes the person in charge came in to explain that due to the winter time, it was set for heating only, it would heat all night without stopping. That did not sound right. He further explained that the room has two windows that could be opened to allow fresh cool air to enter. Oh well, I could sense that it would be useless to talk about thermocouples and temperatures. Everyday we would be greeted by Bertha. She and the housekeeping staff are working tirelessly to make our stay an examplary one. We had the same personal service from Assad the doorman and staff. The Fairfax Hotel is buzzing with foreign dignitaries and business associates as I used the computers in the office to do online flight checkins. We would recommend using this Hotel highly.
"Beautiful historic hotel"
This historic hotel is located on Embassy Row in the Georgetown area of Washington, DC. It is about a two-minute walk from the Metro and the bus. I was staying there because I was attending a ceremony at the Washington National Cathedral which was just a few bus stops away. There are restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but the hotel also has a very nice dining room. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The only thing was that there was no heat source in the bathroom so it was quite chilly in there. Also, it takes a long time for the water to get hot, so if you just jump in the shower and let the water run on you, you would be in for a rude awakening. Other than that, the room was very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.
"Very pleasant stay"
A very nice hotel in a very nice location. I didn't try the on-site restaurant, but I did enjoy a couple of nearby restaurants, and there are many nearby. Short walk to the Dupont Circle metro station. The only shortcoming was a non-functional ice-machine on my floor, but that was a very minor inconvenience. I'd definitely stay again.
"Fairfax at Embassy Row"
Hotel is beautifully decorated and hotel staff extremely attentive. Beds are very comfortable.This hotel is my favorite place to stay in DC. Hotel is close to the Natio al Mall and transportation around the DC area.
