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
"Fairfax should not use plastic!"
This hotel has lovely rooms and is good to look at and very clean. It is not too big, and has a nice atmosphere. The staff are really helpful. But can you believe it, the management removed all the cutlery and crockery a month before I stayed there in March, and replaced it all with plastic! Besides being environmentally unfriendly (all that plastic being used once and then thrown away), it is not pleasant to sit in a lovely dining room, with great furnishings, eating off plastic plates with plastic utensils. There are some cost-cutting strategies that do not work! If you have not booked breakfast, don't eat breakfast at the hotel with plastic, but walk 3 minutes to Du Pont Circle where you will find lovely breakfast places - and they are cheaper.
"Charming Hotel, close to resturants and transportation"
Nice hotel, clean and very quiet. Very close to the Metro and easy to get around the local area. Make sure you join their loyalty program and get free Wi-Fi. Had no problems at all the entire 5 days we stayed.
"Great staff and location but downgrades since last stay"
Stay at the Fairfax at Embassy Row regularly - my regular "go to" place in DC. What I really like about this hotel is a great location and walkable to many restaurants and Dupont Circle. Comfortable beds and lovely bathroom product and towels. The staff here is very friendly and if you sign up for their rewards program you get free wi fi and a room upgrade if available. What is really disappointing is that the restaurant, which was never very good, has been downgraded since my last visit. Since my last visit the breakfast has been downgraded to a buffet only without any table service, plastic plates and forks (versus china forks and real silverware), and serve yourself coffee. There are bacon and eggs, but the fruit was whole apples, pears, bananas rather than nice cut fruit. Cold sweet rolls, no cereal. Really abysmal offering. I also noticed that the robe in the room was gone - something I had always enjoyed before. For what is classified as a 4 star hotel, this is not a 4 star experience.
"Historical Hotel near Dupont Circle"
Booked hotel late for a conference at the Convention Center, so this was a little out of the way. But very near Dupont Circle and two blocks to Metro station. Hotel staff was friendly, rooms are well sized with work area and sitting area for TV. No room service and the bar and restaurant area staff were very busy.
Lovely Hotel, good location, friendly door staff, not so friendly reception staff. Very disappointed with Breakfast, no Silverware, all plastic, Paper Cups for Coffee/Tea, very limited choices for breakfast. Breakfast staff very friendly
