I stayed at the Fairfax over MLK weekend and found the experience excellent. The staff could not have been more courteous from check in to leaving the hotel. The beds are very comfy as are the pillows. Excellent luxurious stay. Thanks Fairfax!

The beds are comfortable, the housekeeping staff works tirelessly to make sure every room is perfectly clean, and the concierge service is extraordinary....
