The Fairfax at Embassy Row: Did You Know?
The Fairfax at Embassy Row has a long connection to D.C. politics. Here are a few fun facts about the historic property.
Al Gore lived here as a child (it was not a hotel at the time).
Hillary Clinton held press conferences here when she was running for president.
The Steinway piano in the lounge was a gift from the Kennedy family.
Nancy Reagan was a Jockey Club regular (she liked the corner table) and back in the day had a chicken salad named for her.
The Jockey Club opened for business in 1961 on the day John F. Kennedy took the presidential oath of office.
