Plastic plates for breakfast is wasteful!

Posted Nov 20, 2017
We just stayed at the Fairfax for three nights and were surprised to see that they only use plastic plates silverware and paper cups. Such an assault on our environment. I would consider staying here again if they changes this policy.

Fairfax Living in the 20th Century

Posted Nov 19, 2017
Staff is warm and wonderful! Unfortunately the facility needs updating - shabby but not chic. Phone near bed didn’t work! TV unacceptable - 7 HD stations clear - 16 Analog stations’ reception blurred and interrupted by static! Bedding terrific - but furnishings worn and dated. Staff offered other rooms but all had similar issues and I’m really not a complainer.

Beautiful Hotel - Gracious Service - Amazing Value

Posted Nov 11, 2017
Pros: Everything.
Cons: There was a bit of remodeling going on, however that is to be expected as properties are well kept.
Location: The hotel is located on Embassy Row near DuPont Circle.
I had read about this hotel many years ago in the Architectural Digest Magazine. It certainly lived up to my recollection. The staff included certainly some of the most welcoming and friendly I have experienced bar none. The hotel has an historical ambiance that is well maintained. The room, well decorated, was spotless and included all the comforts one might expect in a grand hotel. I will stay there every opportunity I may have.

Nice hotel and good location

Posted Nov 9, 2017
Pros: Very clean and great staff keen to help.
Cons: Toilet and toilet roll position :)
Location: Staff have a great listing of close by restaurants etc and will show you the list. Very helpful when arriving on international flight, tired & hungry
Nice, clean and very welcoming staff and eager to help. Location was great with many restaurants etc nearby. Was on business trip and stay in DC a lot and would happily stay here again. Only issues I had were minor. Breakfast price was far to high for a continental breakfast compared to what I pay elsewhere therefore ate out each day. And 1 small issue, I am not a big person but the toilet in the room was placed basically against the wall on your left side. And also then they decided to place the toilet roll holder on that wall so it was impossible to sit on the toilet and use the toilet roll lol. Your leg slide under the toilet roll and held it in place.. I challenge any of the staff to use the toilet rofl. Would like to see that. But again only minor and all else was excellent.

Excellent hotel

Posted Nov 5, 2017
This was a lovely hotel. Very clean and in an excellent location, two minutes from the subway and a twenty minute walk from the White House. The staff were very helpful and friendly and made us very welcome. (Eduardo made fab cocktails in the bar!) We were also upgraded without even asking. The only downside was the expensive WiFi which I didn’t use as you can get free WiFi in all the museums and most of the cafes and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again. We had a great time.
