“There are many hotels you can find that won't cost a lot during the slow months, but booking...”
Fairfax is one of the oldest cities in the United States, and it was the first city to have a Civil War battle. This is just a small fact that brings tourists to visit the small town. There are events almost year-round, and finding a cheap hotel in Fairfax isn't easy. There are more affordable prices in January, but there are also no activities scheduled in Fairfax. There is a good mix of budget and luxury hotels in the city, and with enough searching, deals can be found. Don't let that discourage you from visiting Fairfax.
