We were attending a wedding at Mount Vernon. Booked two rooms for my family. The experience was great at the Candlewood Suites. Both rooms were clean and filled with amenities. The front desk staff couldn't have been nicer. Danielle was especially great! One room was missing a hair dryer. I called down and it was brought up to my room... More

I’ve travelled here to the Fort Belvoir area for business on several occasions and I’ve always stayed at the Hampton Inn. Luckily for me they were booked this time.

Rates were reasonable, close to quickie food places, Ft Belvoir, and South DC. Reasonably close enough to metro. Rooms were very nice, clean, large. Room was quiet to sleep in. Coffee was Maxwell House. Liked the "commissary" to buy late night food snacks in. No continental breakfast, but theres a Roy Rogers right across the street (as is gas) and... More

I stayed here one night for business and it is absolutely stunning. The hotel is like new and very clean and inviting. The rooms are very spacious and plenty of desk space to spread out and get some work done. The bed was extremely comfortable as well. Would absolutely stay here again!
