We spent four nights in DC, at this hotel located on the Embassy Row, right across the road from a statue of Mahatma Gandhi.
The hotel recognises its limited offering of in-house dining options, by providing an extensive list of restaurants where guests can find food.
Unfortunately the list misses what we found to be great options such as “The Mission” for Mexican food and Soi 38 for Thai food. It seemed that whomever compiled the list of restaurants, took the easy option and picked the restaurants along P street rather than anywhere else in the city.
Other noteworthy members of staff at this hotel include the Valet parking coordinator and the lobby support individuals. They were impeccable In not only providing support if there was a clear and present danger of a significant tip being paid🤣

The Fairfax is a nicely situated hotel on Embassy Row with very attentive staff. They have just completed a redo that is ultra modern. While this may=y be the trend, it loses its ambiance as a stately "comfortable " hotel. There is a nice bar but no sit down day time service other than quick food from a little cafe with refrigerators. Rooms are very comfortable.
