Friendly and professional staff in all areas made this a wonderful stay. The hotel room was clean and spacious. I felt completely safe and comfortable at all times. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone attending functions/events at Verizon.
Assuming I can afford it - it is FAIRLY pricey although by no means the top end for DC - I won't look anywhere else should I return. My suite was so cosy, a refuge from sometimes inclement weather, and itself a pleasure of the vacation. The staff aren't fulsome, but I would probably be grumping if they were over-familiar so let's be fair. Exception: my delightful maid Betsy who charmingly helped me get back in the room quickly in the middle of service time, after returning from being soaked to the skin by a cloudburst in front of the Capitol Building (and yet also with a spot-on-trained security check that I was who I claimed to be). The restaurant is just bar food, although it's a very cosy bar - that word again. And there is not exactly a shortage of choice for quality restaurants at mid and higher prices around Dupont Circle. Oh yes, the location: it is outlying but only slightly. I walked to White House in about half an hour, and otherwise mostly took the largely impressive DC Metro, from Dupont Circle station five minutes stroll away from the Fairfax. You might need to spend a few 20-buck cab rides if you are short of time on certain days, or just footsore. But if you're footsore, the Fairfax is such a very very welcoming place to which to return. Handsome building inside and out, historic too. The surrounding embassy district is not just safe, but really really pleasant with some splendid domestic architecture to admire. A new favorite.
