The country club set would feel at home in this 1920s-era hotel. The grand Fairfax at Embassay Row has an eight-story, red-brick exterior trimmed with white dentil molding and anchored by a well-manicured garden. Inside, a wood-paneled lobby leads to the Fairfax Lounge and the hotel bar. Both spaces continue the country-club-chic look, with paintings of hunting and sailing scenes, vaulted tray ceilings, dark woods and touches of plaid. Guestrooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel receive a classic English-countryside treatment and feature two-poster wood headboards, floral drapes, papered walls and settees. Pillow-top beds are covered in 300-thread-count Fili D’oro linens and a colorful floral throw. In the bathroom, you’ll find Frette robes and slippers, marble floors and countertops, and Gilchrist & Soames amenities. Some rooms have lovely views of the mansions along Embassy Row, but you should get out and explore the area for yourself.
