We spent 6 nights here over the inaugural week and it was a really good choice. DuPont Circle metro is 2 mins walk, both P Street and Connecticut Ave, the two adjacent streets have dozens of restaurant options and the fabulous Phillips Collection is right across the street. The hotel was busy because of the inauguration, but the staff were...

Lovely old style hotel. Friendly staff. Rooms reasonably priced. Small gym but has everything you need. Great location close to a DuPont. Loads of restaurants nearby. I marked the hotel as quaint which it was except for a noisy bunch of young people who were staying on our floor in the 5-6 rooms after ours. It was New Year's Eve...

I visited this hotel last week. The property is more for a short stay in town. It's clean with nice rooms and basic amenities. If you're looking for a clean place to stay, the hotel will meet your need. It's in a good location as well. There's a bar and grille with friendly bar tenders. Other than that, there's nothing...

We stayed 3 nights in deluxe king room. Very spacious and the staff were excellent. The hotel was close to DuPont Circle Metro station and provided easy access to all the monuments/ museums and other attraction. Make sure you visit Arlington Cemetery, a short trip on the Metro and you are at the front gate. Also travel Reagan International Airport...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Fairfax. We had an excellent stay. The hotel staff was incredibly helpful in telling us about attractions in the area and arranging for transport. Although the room was fairly small, it was gorgeous and the bed was comfortable!
