"Great hotel, great location"
First time visit - this is part of Starwood's Luxury Collection. It is located right adjacent to George Washington University - took a lovely walk around the neighborhood and really enjoyed the beauty of GW and the neighborhood. The rooms are very nice and well appointed. The main lobby for check in is small, but there is another lobby around the corner which I think is used for their parties/events. I think what is special is the location with the rooms and hotel being very nice. I would stay here again if in the area.
"Terrible experience at what is a 4 star at best and certainly no luxury hotel"
Arriving late evening, my reservation was from the following day I was told, despite having confirmation in writing from American Express. Having travelled for 30 hours, I was in no condition to argue, and accepted when (the very helpful and friendly) reception staff found me a room at a small inn nearby. It turned out that Fairfax has mistakenly changed my reservation. No apology was offered, no compensation for the much more expensive (graduation weekend) replacement room. When I returned the next day at 6pm for my room, it was not ready. Once in the hotel, I am still waiting five days later for my cheese tray to be cleaned away, or a laundry bag to appear, or the blinking light on my phone to end as I have no messages. More seriously, Fairfax maintains its classic style, but slightly worn. The gym is small and equipment worn. Room is reasonably sized but the bathroom cramped and tub shallow. Few electric outlets, all American, but a comfortable bed. All in all - my reservation issues aside - a reasonably priced 4 star, but do not expect anything else
"A Little Small but Location is Great"
So the decor is a little...retro. I felt like I was staying in someone's grandma's room. It was also a little small but then again I was coming after staying in a mini-suite at The Renaissance in Downtown so that may have been it. I did expect more for a 5 star property, it felt a little lacking. Although I will say, the bed was amazing. Despite that, everything was clean and there was nothing wrong with the room at all. And the best thing about this hotel hands down was the location! I love the Dupont Circle neighborhood and this hotel was smack dab in the middle of it. If you can get a good deal for this property (say under$150) then do it!!! But just remember what I said about the room size.
"very good, but luxury collection' really'"
Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice hotel but not enough to make it Starwood Luxury Collection. As a Platinum member I was "upgraded" to a higher floor room, but from what I could tell all the rooms are basically the same except for the suites. The rooms are nice sized and comfortable, but I found the bedding less comfortable than Westin or Sheraton branded beds. Many of the rooms have connecting doors to the next room and I could hear voices both in the room next door as well as the hallway. The location is excellent and the service is excellent. There is a nice bar but there are so many things to do close by that I did not spend much time in my hotel room. All in all a good visit, if not an inspiring one.
This is my favorite hotel in Washington DC. Probably one of my favorite hotels anywhere. The staff is amazing, the rooms are always clean and neat. They really go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. It is centrally located in DuPont circle. I stay here both for business and pleasure.
