"well located, small, hospitable."
My wife and i always stay here when we visit DC. The rooms are nicely furnished, the staff is friendly. The location (near Dupont Circle, convenient to the Red Line) is great. The Phillips gallery is a block away.
"Well located but breakfast & some of the service can be much better"
Friend recommended this hotel - it is indeed well located and is well known by the locals. It is pretty well priced - we paid 250 USD per night. Though extras do add up. Welcome & reception staff very good. Housekeeping no problem too. Breakfast is 25 USD plus charges is not really worth it and the restaurant staff seemed bored and not really interested in serving customers or removing used plates and glasses from the table. Only when I deleted previously added tip did they come up to me to see if anything was wrong. Similar experience in the bar. When I asked for tea with lemon I was brought pot of tea and the cuts of lemon not on the tray or plate but on the paper napkin (see photo) - 5 star service! Room service was not much better - they brought for breakfast totally inedible hard melons (see photo), we had to leave them untouched.
"Amazing Sevice and Great Staff"
I've stayed at the Fairfax for many business trips to DC and always chose them because of the great service they provide as well as the charming and friendly staff. The Fairfax is located in DuPont circle where lots of restaurants are in walking distance. I would definetly reccomend the Fairfax to my close friends and family and anyone who is traveling to DC for business.
"Really good in parts but punching below its weight"
This hotel has some very strong points. Great location in easy walking distance of very good restaurants, the Phillips and the metro as well as close to Georgetown and within the buzzy DuPont circle area. The staff are excellent and the rooms have a reassuring solidity. The bathroom was excellent with a large shower and plentiful towels and toiletries. However there were some negatives. The wifi charge seemed petty in this day and age and there seemed to be small rather silly additional charges for using added devices even if you purchased wifi as we did.The bar staff were nice but there was not much to lure you in especially given the rather eccentric air conditioning which made it very cold. There was free water but the minibar was not filled. Breakfast buffet was ok with plentiful coffee and other things but a bit tired . I would have preferred a change from scrambled egg bacon and breakfast potato . This hotel has many star qualities but these quirks suggest it needs a slight rethink towards generosity and imagination. I would stay here again because of the rooms,location and staff.but it is punching below its weight.
"Lovely Hotel on Embassy Row"
Really Old World style boutique hotel in an incredible area. Dupont Circle loaded with restaurants. The lobby area is small but simply elegant. The staff, all were extremely attentive, welcoming and friendly. The hotel room elegantly appointed with a SUPER comfortable mattress. We walked the area and toured the street filled with the magnificent embassies, a treat. we were visiting our son at school and have stayed in many hotels in the area over the years. By far, The Fairfax is my top stay and we will return in the spring.
