The Fairfax at Embassy Row: Luxury at an Affordable Price

What Do I Need to Know About the Fairfax?

This luxury hotel boasts 259 rooms and suites offering exceptional views of Dupont Circle, the National Cathedral, and Washington, D.C. monuments. This Georgian-style hotel is adorned with ornate wooden fixtures but also provides all the contemporary facilities and amenities required in today's world. The Fairfax provides high-speed Internet access, flat-screen TVs, a business center, a fitness center, and in-room dining.

What’s the Area Like?

This Embassy Row hotel has a premier location in Washington, D.C., at the very trendy Dupont Circle in the northwest quarter of the city. It is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods, and the Fairfax is nestled in between D.C.’s famous boutiques and stylish restaurants. Being just two blocks from the subway, the rest of the city and all of its attractions become easily accessible.

What are the Rates?

Though not the cheapest option in Washington, D.C., it’s important to remember that, especially in cases like this, you get what you pay for. That being said, there are plenty of luxury hotels that cost far more than this. The Fairfax at Embassy Row provides a variety of room types: single rooms for up to two people will run you about $159 per night, and they even have suites which can accommodate up to six adults (around $399-$475 per night).

What’s the Bottom Line?

Washington, D.C. is a city in which location is of utmost importance. It’s not very walkable like New York is, so the easy access to the metro is a big plus for the Fairfax. In Dupont Circle, though, you won’t need to wander far, and this is a beautiful four-star hotel at a very reasonable price. Whether you’re traveling for business or you’re on a romantic getaway with your significant other, the Fairfax is exactly where you want to be.

Expert Reviews
A member of Starwood's Luxury Collection, this 1927 landmark with a grand chandeliered lobby is situated two blocks from Dupont Circle and has hosted many Washington luminaries.
Light-filled hallways, invitingly bright guest rooms, soft bed linens, marble baths, and impeccable service make this hotel, which used to be Al Gore's childhood home, a bastion of comfort.
Views overlooks of Embassy Row, Georgetown, or the National Cathedral. The location places you just a mile from the National Mall and all of its highlights, including the Smithsonian Institute.
