  • Well located excellent hotel

    by Hariom A on 2017-06-24 06:15 am

    We started our maiden US trip from Washington and stayed here 3 nights. It's location is central close to DuPont circle. Check in was smooth.Room, bathroom were good. Since it is close to metro station we used it for visiting Museums. Will recommend this hotel as it is not expensive and has serene surroundings.

  • Very nice!!

    by ChristinaRoderick on 2017-06-24 00:27 am

    Fairfax Hotel in Washington DC is located on Embassy Row. Very nice neighborhood to walk around, shop, eat drink, transportation.
    Even though it is a rather large hotel, eight floors, it has the feel of a boutique hotel, due to the personal attention. We were greeted at the reception desk by Paul, very professional and personable at the same time. We felt welcome right away. Thank you Paul. The room was very clean, good quality of bedding/ linen. Comfy bed! Modern bathroom. Excellent shower. Housekeeping very good as well.
    The personal at the bar, restaurant, very friendly, helpful.
    We would gladly stay again in this hotel. We recommend it as well.
    Thank you Fairfax for the pleasant stay.

  • Nice location and value

    by kreino on 2017-06-23 10:25 am

    We stayed at The Fairfax for a few days while attending an event near the Convention Center. The hotel is only a block or two away from the Dupont Circle Metro stop. It's also walking distance from many restaurants. The room size was adequate and clean. The bed was comfortable. Overall, The Fairfax is a great hotel option based on it's central location, proximity to the Metro, and through prepaid sites, a bargain for the quality of the accommodations.

  • Stay at a Historic Hotel in DC

    by PDG2858 on 2017-06-23 08:39 am

    If you like to stay in a hotel full of history, this is a great choice in DC. It is conveniently located near public transportation, just down from DuPont Circle. Elegantly decorated, full of photographs of Washington and it's monuments, we enjoyed a trip through history. The staff is marvelous. Helpful and pleasant in every way. A return trip is a definite for us, next time we go to Washington.

    Owner Response

  • Great location but...

    by mragan on 2017-06-21 01:53 pm

    I was very much looking forward to my stay at the Fairfax. The location is prime, and the pictures looked beautiful, but there were some issues with my stay.

    1. Tons of mold on bathroom tile (see pics).
    2. Very dusty (see pic). Honestly, when your room isn't clean at a very basic level, it makes one doubt the cleanliness of everything in the room (linens, towels, etc.).
    3. No amenities in room like pen or paper or sugar for coffee. These missing items seem minor but not having them is an inconvenience.
    4. I was there during an especially hot spell in DC but I couldn't keep the room temperature cool.
    5. Toilet ran all night.
    6. Restaurant/bar hours are very limited. No other vending on site. No room service.
    7. There is no place to have informal business meetings in the lobby. I had to meet a colleague in the restaurant.
    8. The restaurant was filthy during breakfast buffet. Vacated tables were left with food on them and weren't wiped down.
    9. This is perhaps just a personal preference, but the toiletries were masculine scented. I would prefer something more neutral than woody-oak.

    Pros about the hotel:
    1. Good location.
    2. Front desk staff cheerful and helpful at check-in.

    Perhaps my expectations were too high, but this experience wasn't what I was expecting.
    I emailed the hotel twice with no response (6/13 and 6/20).
