            6.2

            The location was perfect for what I needed. The staff was friendly.

            The room was stuffy and warm, and I could not adjust the temperature. The mini-bar was completely empty though the in-room Hotel Services book said that each room was fully outfitted with one.

          • Single
            7.4

            The central situation close to the metro. This hotel is really close to the center and the main attractions are at walking distance.

            The expensive wifi connection, the very expensive breakfast (mainly if you include the VAT and the tip). This breakfast is not a buffet.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            From arrival to departure the staff were friendly and extremely customer service oriented. The room was beautifully appointed and the concierge service was excellent and very efficient. The location cannot be beat for both business meetings as well as access to the metro and major thoroughfares. We had meetings in Georgetown and Chevy Chase and its central location was a great benefit. We will definitely stay there again and highly recommend The Fairfax.

            The hotel was in an excellent location for all we needed, visiting universities for our daughter, the capital and shopping. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food served in the hotel restaurants was exceptional.

            It was very elegant!

            Some V.I.P. came and I couldn't use elevator for a while...

            A very friendly staffs and a relaxed feel to the place. Complimentary daily newspaper in the morning, and complimentary shoe-shining is another odd but useful little gig.

            at check in, the hotel staff couldn't find the booking via bookings.com. It took an extra awkward 10 min. to sort everything out. The staffs were courteous though.

            The Fairfax is a very nice hotel; terrific, terrific location close to many great restaurants and the Metro, extremely comfortable room, very accommodating staff. A completely positive experience (as always--I have stayed here before).

            Beautiful and spacious room with a wonderful view (although admittedly I was on the top floor on the right side of the building). Excellent location and some great restaurants nearby.

            The room key magnetization system didn't work well and the staff were not spectacularly efficient.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The Fairfax at Embassy Row exceeded our expectations. All of the staff were well-trained, courteous and extremely helpful. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom had a great shower, and two morning newspapers were provided. The concierge recommended a monthly event at the nearby Phillips Collection, which happened to coincide with our stay. The hotel has a great location, near the Metro and scores of restaurants and shopping. We were very impressed with the hotel and would definitely return.

          • Single

            Loved the location on Embassy Row. Stunning older mansion-like homes in the area. The Phillips Collection Museum is one block away. Starbucks within walking distance (1 block). Walking distance to Dupont Circle. Concierge service was outstanding. Service in the Fairfax lounge very accommodating (their Organic Chicken Sandwich was excellent as was a salad plate containing lobster, shrimp and crab and avocado). Prime 2100 (previously Jockey Club) was great for breakfast (you must try the lemon ricotta pancakes) very yummy. The staff addressed me by name and I felt the ambiance in the hotel was very good. Taxi service to all locations was quite reasonable. I would also recommend Onboard DC Tours as they have a guide that gets on and off the bus with you and provides historical information at each of the monuments visited. Hotel rooms are very nicely appointed and of course they have the Heavenly Beds. Go ahead, give the hotel a try, you won't be disappointed. I definitely plan to return.

            My only complaint was when entering my room, the door stuck and had to almost be forcibly pushed open. Just a small inconvenience, but nothing major.

            The location is excellent--close to the Metro and DuPont Circle but quiet. My bed had wonderful sheets and was extremely comfortable. It has all the modern amenties but with a touch of the old world.
