The Fairfax at Embassy Row, Washington, D.C.

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Needed a room to stay in close to the Embassies. Most embassies aren't too close (>.5 miles). Cabs and uber made everything easy. The Valet parking is very convenient.

Hotel is on embassy row with easy access to tourist attractions. Room was clean but we could hear a lot of loud conversations in the middle of the night. No free parking available at the hotel though . They charge $60 per night for valet parking and $26 for day use parking. The staff told us that street parking overnight is not allowed even though the signs said otherwise.

From the moment we drove up to the hotel and when we entered everyone and all the staff was absolutely wonderful I would recommend this hotel very much

Great Location, it is a great Hotel, this will be our hotel whenever we are in the are for business or pleasure

Loved the location and updates done on a grand old hotel.

Spent long weekend in DC touring the city. First time in DC will definitely come back!

Enjoyed the sight seeing, monuments and museums, and time well spent walking to all of them.

It was fine. I suggest to put toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom. They didn't give me the room that I reserved. I checked in late but their reason is not ready yet that shouldn't be.

Nice location to walk everywhere we wanted to go with wonderful restaurants & transportation if needed. It was wonderful to see the world by looling ar the international embassies as a beginning to our trip!

great people to check you in and take luggage to the room. Had dinner 1 night in hotel, food was good, bar tender awesome. Breakfast was buffet style, limited choices but did the trick. Rooms were good, everything needed was included, ie, nail file, q tips, soaps, coffee maker and coffee, fridge. No complaints at all

My recommendation is that they relocate the check-in desk. It's pretty cramped and also un-air conditioned -- not the best first impression. The bed was very comfortable and the amenities nice. They don't scrimp on the quality of the bed linens and the number of bath towels given. Very clean. The strip of black duct tape holding down the electric cord running across the entry was a feat of masterful engineering :). And the cloth bench at the foot of the bed has seen far better days. It's a $15 Uber ride from DCA. I'll try a different hotel next time.

Only one night, but the place is great. The room is really classy.

My daughter and I stayed at the Fairfax in DC recently. Everything at this hotel was wonderful! Friendly staff and very comfortable beds to sleep in. Great location for restaurants too.

Great location. Loved this hotel. Great staff!!! Cute room

The Fairfax is beautiful, and clean. The food is good, and fairly priced. The location is great. You're about a five minute walk from Dupont Circle where you can find many kinds of restaurants and shops. The Wi-Fi is too expensive at $11 per day. It's way cheaper to add data to your phone. Concerning TV the channel selection is pathetic and in SD. But you're not really in DC to watch TV. We stayed for 6 nights. The exhaust fan in the bathroom broke the first afternoon. We reported it twice, but they never fixed it. The bathroom sink started to leak, but they fixed that fairly promptly.

Really fine location in Washington with comfortable and spacious rooms. Quiet and with excellent service. Will come back at next visit to the area.

Very good, clean and confortable,, personal so nice

Embassy Row is a world geography lesson. Great place to walk Georgetown Kalo Rama Dupont circle all within walking distance The Internet connection fees are exorbitant only drawback

The hotel is located in a beautful residential area of Washington. There are lots of restaurants in the neighbourhood and metro access is about 3oo meters away. The room was spacious and up to par with what we were expecting. A beautiful historical building with friendly staff.

My experience at Fairfax was OK ... I came with my husband and son and stayed 2 nights. We wanted beverages in the night and there weren't any vending machines =( Also their restaurant is not open all day =( When my husband came down in the middle of the night to ask the front desk something .... No One Was There ! I had to call from my cell phone in the room 'cause the room phone didn't work and finally he picked up and I told them the situation. Their response was that they do administrative work in the back ...
