If you want to stay in the city at a great location (3 blocks from Georgetown, walking distance to Dupont Circle and the Metro, walking distance to a variety of great restaurants, Starbucks on the corner, CVS on the another corner) then The Fairfax at Embassy Row is the place. But please, don't tell everyone. This Luxury Collection Hotel is a GEM!! I'm a Starwood baby so I love staying at mostly Starwood Brands (love those star points). In addition to receiving Starwood points, I love the location, the staff is always friendly and attentive, the hotel is a traditional style property on Embassy Row and when you pull up in the drive way you feel like you've arrived. From the doorman, concierge, front desk and housekeeping you feel special (you even get turndown service at night). One of the best features of this hotel is the fabulous beds and pillows. After a long day, you feel like you've just jumped on a cloud, the pillows are so fluffy. If you want great advice on where to eat or what to do, go see Peter Gill, Concierge he can point you in the right direction, he's fabulous. I've read some of the other reviews and one stated that the property is "dated". It really depends on your definition of dated. When I say a property is dated that means it's in need of a serious renovation, top to bottom. The Fairfax is NOT that property, at ALL. It's a traditional style, high post bed design in an historic building. Updated flat screen TVs in the room, nice bathroom and thick towels and very nice toiletries. The only item I would say is dated is the shower heads (be very careful when changing the temperature, it can get really HOT). I LOVE, LUV, LUV, this hotel and you usually can find great rates midweek and on the weekends since most of the business travelers and diplomats are home. When I travel on business and come home to visit my family, I stay at the Fairfax as my central point between Maryland and Virginia. Parking is expensive like most city hotels, on street parking meters is available, but I always get a ticket, so I just valet. At The Fairfax they treat everyone like a Diplomat!!
