"Another opportunity to shine"
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Fairfax with my son this past March. Our daughter lives in DC and we wanted a hotel near my daughter's place. It worked out well. We had a suite and we were very pleased. Our other daughter, her husband and 1 year old went to DC this past weekend and also stayed at the Fairfax. I arranged for them also to get a suite so the baby had a quiet place to sleep. On their arrival they were given a rather small arrangement. My daughter simply asked Paul at the front desk to see if something larger was available. He said let me see what I can do. The next day they were upgraded to a wonderful room. I can't tell you how pleased I am with the service at this hotel. I plan to make this "Our Family Hotel". This is the kind of service that keeps you coming back. Bravo!
"Fine for a short-stay, but nothing outstanding"
Stayed for one night while in DC for work. The bed/pillows are very comfortable, the hotel is in a great location near shops, restaurants, and the Dupont Circle Metro stop, and isn't particularly noisy. I got a great deal on Priceline compared to other hotels that night in DC and given the cost-savings, I would do the same again. That said, the decor seems somewhat tired, the room was tiny and looked out on a brick wall, the room only had one towel (albeit a nice one), some of the staff were less than welcoming (although others were very nice), and the hotel hallways had a faint musty smell. I wouldn't suggest this as a special night out kind of stay - more as a perfectly fine accommodation.
"Great location and I got a very good deal."
While making arrangements for attending a conference hosted at the Washington Hilton, I had a bit of sticker shock on the lodging cost at the Hilton. Over $300 per night with all the taxes and fees. Yeah, I know this is DC, but I figured I could do better. So, I looked at VRBO.com to see if there were any condos or townhouses available for a more reasonable rate but still within walking distance of the Hilton (I use VRBO, FlipKey, and other similar sites all the time and always find excellent deals). There were a few options and the first one I tried put me in contact with a third-party booking agent (Global Travel International) and once I explained my situation he said that he could do even better than what was listed on the website. And he did! He was able to reserve a five-night stay at the Fairfax on Embassy Row for $711 TOTAL! That’s $142 per night so less than half the price of the Hilton. I just could not say no to a deal like that! I looked at n online map while talking with the agent and it looked like an easy walk from the Fairfax to the Hilton so I took the offer. That ended being a great move. The Fairfax on Embassy Row is located right on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 21st Street NW which is a great location. Seems to be a nice neighborhood; I felt very comfortable walking here at all hours (I was out any time from 6:00 AM to midnight). Less and a 10 minute walk to the Hilton (note that I do walk quickly), and a short walk to the shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue. There is a CVS just a couple blocks east as well as the DuPont Circle Metro Station. The Rock Creek Park is a couple blocks to the west which provided a nice morning stroll. As for the hotel itself, I had no complaints. It was clean and comfortable and well-appointed with all the usual amenities (iron and ironing board to press those dress clothes for meetings, all the normal bathroom supplies, etc.). There was wifi available in the room for a charge, but the charge was waived since I signed up for their reward program (at no charge). Plenty of space in the room which included a sleeping area and an office space. There was also a refrigerator, although the orange juice that I stored there did freeze (I could not find a temperature control). For me the location was great and the hotel had everything that I needed either onsite or within a short walk. I would definitely stay at the Fairfax on Embassy Row again.
"Perfect little hideaway in the most convenient location of Washington DC"
This hotel is an awesome medium-sized hotel with a small hotel feeling located a block from DuPont circle in Washington DC. The front desk employees, hotel manager, bellman and housekeeping are all first class and extremely accommodating. The rooms are good in size and have extremely comfortable beds and linens (frette I believe) and if you are lucky enough to have a view of embassy row you are really in for a treat! (Gorgeous view) All in all loved the first class treatment and accommodations for a fair price. Will be back!
"romantic weekend in DC"
Pros: location! just a block off Dupont Circle, near shopping, restaurants, and metro. Plus, it's a lovely historic property, with attentive staff, and well-appointed rooms, at a reasonable price. Cons: $45/day valet parking (only other option is limited street parking). Also, bathrooms are updated, but shower is tiny in standard rooms; hard to turn around if you're an average-size adult.
Credit cards accepted by the hotel: Visa - MasterCard - American Express - Diners Club - Japan Credit Bureau (JCB) - Discover
