Why You Need To Stay At The Fairfax Hotel
The Fairfax at Embassy Row is an icon in its own right, and continues to be a timeless and unique choice for accommodations at Washington D.C. Located in the heart of Embassy Row, which is frequented by international travelers and locals because of the series of international embassies dotting the avenue, the Fairfax Hotel provides a historic and elegant retreat at the nation’s capital.
Each room has its own original crown molding, and guests are treated to an array of modern conveniences that will make your stay memorable as it is comfortable: 42” flat screen television sets, iPod docking stations, digital clocks, and there are even laptop safes available in some of the rooms. Our rooms are also adorned with beautiful, local artworks and the bathrooms have luxurious amenities like Frette bathrobes.
Our standard room, the Superior Hotel Room stands out among all comparable lodgings in the same class of rooms because of 250 square foot space, rich cherry wood armoire, elegant drapery, and all the modern amenities you might need to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
Our standard lodging provides a sweeping view of Embassy Row, including tourist spots like museums and monuments. Planning your day ahead or simply enjoying the feel of being in the city does not get any better than this.
When you arrive at our hotel, you will immediately be given access to complimentary local and domestic long-distance calls, complimentary coffee at the Market, a Press Reader, and we will even provide you with notary public services, from 8 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon, Mondays through Fridays.
If you happen to be in the city on business, we also offer free incoming package receiving and handling for guests, as well as professional business services (copies and fax). And to make sure that you do not skip a beat in your daily routine, take note that guests also have 24/7 access to our premiere fitness center.
There is so much to discover and explore on your own at Embassy Row. A walking tour of the area begins at the Australian Embassy which is the starting point of Massachusetts Avenue. This two mile stretch is the natural seat of so many international cultures and diplomatic missions, and there are two significant memorials here, too: the Mahatman Gandhi Memorial and the statue of the great statesman and freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela.
Visit the Phillips Collection, which is America’s very first museum dedicated to modern art. The museum regularly hosts events and other programs for guests, and there are also concerts during the first Thursday of each month, aptly called Phillips After 5.
When you’re done soaking in modern art, it’s time to head over historic sites nearby, including the home of the former US President, Woodrow Wilson. His home has been impeccably preserved and seemed to have avoided the rigors of time as it looks the same way it did back in the 1920s.
