Rated 3 out of 5 by jim12345 good staff hotel needs upgrading
i am a business traveller and look at hotels through that lens. this hotel has quiet rooms and friendly staff (though there were always at least two or three doorman talking at the front door so hard to get in and out). the bathroom was nice and the wireless internet worked perfectly. the gym was good with a universal type machine and free weights. the room itself needs upgrading - new carpet. don't get a room near the alley -- noisy late at night and don't get a connecting room because the doors are old and not soundproofed

I dont think I need to say more.
There were droplets of BLOOD on the floor of my bathroom.
I have never been so disgusted.
Clearly he cleanliness (and SAFETY) of this hotel is in serious question. I have warned all my colleagues NOT to stay at this hotel. Ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave1148 Very good hotel
Enjoyed my stay, the room was comfortable, TV good, bathroom fine, ipad and charger useful. Unbrellas in closet turned out to be fantastically useful.
Two minor criticisms. Was there a choice of papers? USA Today is not a great paper in all honesty, not that this was mentioned to me at check-in. Also wi-fi.... everyone mentions it, and rightly, really it should be free in this day and age, especially given almost every cafe in DC also provides this. Perhaps it's just a tactic to stop the hotel getting too popular.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leo34 Room 218
I feel like i was purposely given a room next to the huge electric generator or some other kind of machine that continously worked all night!! (room # 218)
My other concern is temproray authorizations by this hotel. It impacts my credit limit. As of today i see two temproray authorization totaling around $2000. Even though i do not have next coming reservation!!!

While room not ready on arrival, staff went out of way to get me in quickly when I came back. Bellman always great with "welcome back" which is always nice way to begin are turn visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SlRYg Valet Parking the Only Issue
The hotel is very pleasant -- quiet and clean. The staff, with whom we didn't interact much, seemed friendly.
My complaint is the valet parking. We received what I was told would be a voucher, due to our attendance at a fundraiser held in the ballroom the night we checked in. But when we checked out, we were told the voucher wasn't good for overnight parking. Someone made the decision to *discourage* event attendees from spending the night? Blockheaded and annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by colettecello Perfect for business travel
The staff here is exceptional: incredibly accommodating, going beyond any reasonable expectations to make any guest comfortable. I *love* staying here. As a plus, the hotel is centrally located so it's easy to get around DC to wherever you might need to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sunny036 Hotel Ranks High - Room Service Not So Good
Situated on Dupont Circle, The Fairfax Hotel is ideal walking distance or a shot taxi ride to most attractions in Washington, D.C. Hotel amenities meet needs although Room Service failed to attend to our room until late afternoon twice, interrupting post-lunch naps. A friendly staff produces smiles throughout the Hotel.
