"Historical hotel, a real GEM!"
We wanted to find a reasonably priced hotel in Washington D.C. in a good location. Prices are high in any big city & we shopped before arriving. The Fairfax was priced under $200 and had good reviews. We absolutely loved it! It had a classical charm to it like you were back in George Washington days. Not right in the middle of the city but very close. Charming Embassy Row with foreign embassies surrounding the hotel. Lots of nearby restaurants. Hotel has nice bar, lobby, casual restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Rooms were great, clean, comfortable & well appointed. Front desk staff friendly and super helpful. Special thanks to "Q" who offered so many great suggestions on neighborhood things to see and sightseeing tips. She was great and made our trip special. Hop-on, hop-off bus stops at hotel to connect with sightseeing bus in downtown Washington & is so convenient.
"Great hotel in excellent location"
We stayed for 4 nights in Sept 2017. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood near great restaurants and the Metro station. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable and the staff were all very helpful and pleasant. Would stay here again!
"Some fantastic staff members but'"
We visited in November 2016, so apologies for this tardy review, afraid time just got away! We arrived by train from NYC. Have to say the station was chaotic but a lovely red cap sorted us out, even to finding a suitable cab for four plus luggage. Arrival was swift and the staff at the front were cheerful and faultless, taking care of bags etc. Check in was ok. The hotel itself lacks any warmth, basically a check in area, a bar open at times, the restaurant, and rooms. Ours were on the second floor and whilst not luxurious acceptable for what we paid. The location is quite far from the museums etc but we used taxis. We were there over thanksgiving which is memorable for all the wrong reasons! My daughter woke up to a large cockroach near the bed! She, and all of us were horrified! Front desk not really interested'' Her husband dispatched it. Then talked again to the front desk. They were very apologetic by this time and arranged deep clean of the room. We would have moved but being thanksgiving and one night to go we decided to go with it. They offered a free breakfast by way of recompense, we had booked and paid through a third party so no discount. Whilst walking around the area we did see rats and cockroaches so maybe a problem in the area! This hotel charges for internet!! In this day and age it should be a given. There was some in public places, but no designated seating to use it' Would we stay again, sadly not! This review may not have been so kind, but I left my iPad in the room, and after some perseverance contacted a manager who kindly sent it on to me.
"Nice Stay but expensive"
We stayed here in September 2017 for 5 days. The hotel was nice, clean and spacious. Very classic style hotel with a lot of charm. When we arrived at the hotel the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and could not have done enough for us. There were 4 of traveling and we booked two rooms. The reception staff were helpful in that they put two rooms together. When we got up to the room we were greeted with a large sized room with a king bed and a sofa bed which was comfortable. The room was a little dark as the room was facing the adjacent building within the hotel but it not a problem as we were out most of the time anyway. The bathroom was really clean and modern and the shower was easy to manage as it had a temperature gauge on it. There was also complementary shampoos shower gels, cotton buds, cotton balls and a shower cap. There is also an in room safe and loads of wardrobe space to hang things or put things away. The room had a large TV but I never really watched it. The wifi is at a cost $12.99 per day for 3 devices max but the receptionist put us on for two days free and after that we just connected to lobby as the room was in an area that could pick it up it was good signal but could be faster. The fitness center was near our room and it has a cross trainer, bikes, treadmill, lat pull down machines and free weights. The center was well stocked out and air conditioned. The fitness center also gives complementary ear phones (only good on the attached tvs at the machines and also not good in cell phones) and water. The bar and restaurant was good a little bit expensive but the food was nice and good portions too we only had food there one night. The drinks in the bar were a little bit expensive. The breakfast was a buffet and cost $18 so we decided to go out. The staff we nice and welcoming and the hotel itself was good. I would not come back though as it was expensive to stay here which is a shame because is a nice hotel with a lot of charm.
"Will definitely be back again ! "
I love everything about this hotel. The room is spacious and beautiful. The bed is extremely comfy that I wouldnt want to get up in the morning. Staffs are very friendly. The location of the hotel is excellent. There is a Starbuck and a supermarket right behind the hotel. Subway is not far as well.
