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
I arrived assuming, of course, a 4 star hotel would 1) provide room service, 2) provide bathroom slippers, and 3) have a polite, discrete and friendly staff. WRONG!
While the rooms are beautiful, they do NOT provide bathroom slippers, there is no mini bar, no half and half for in room coffee, an antiquated TV and remote system NO room service and not very friendly restaurant staff.
The first night I went to the bar. I began chatting with the bar tender who was polite and kind. Then, uninvited, a female waitress/bar maid, INSERTED herself into our conversation, saying incredibly RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, IMPERTINENT things! I was flabbergasted! It made me NEVER want to go to that bar again! I have never been so insulted in my life, ESPECIALLY not at an upscale, 4 star, hotel bar/restaurant!
I will seek alternatives to the Fairfax in the future. Even the waiter at breakfast had an attitude and was anything but genuinely solicitous and helpful. He was at least not rude, though.
I recently travelled to the DMV area for an arts advocacy conference. The staff was friendly and it was a great environment to get work done. I dined in the restaurant and had a meeting in the bar area. The Manager Semere Zemo worked tirelessly to ensure that our expectations were met. Our room was clean and well tended to. I will stay here again and recommend the same to my friends.

This is a well known hotel of Washington, DC. Several popular leaders like Wife of JFK Kennedy etc have stayed at this place. Situated right opposite Indian Embassy, it is a corner property at a great location. You have Starbucks, an Indian and Afghan restaurant nearby so that you get different varieties of cuisines. Not much of traffic. So, nice place to walk to nearby places. Sight is beautiful when it snows. Very courteous Staff willing to help always.

I was in US for a month and travelled to different cities but I would say this was by far the best hotel I stayed in. Very close to Dupont Circle, the metro station & Starbucks. Very cosy & good rooms. You get delicious free cookies every evening at the lobby :)
Friendly & helpful staff too!! For Indians very good Indian restaurants nearby as well.
