I reserved this hotel roughly two weeks before staying there and booked a room through Expedia with two queen beds. Since I received a discount price, my credit card was charged right away and the room was non-refundable. Expedia had confirmed the room and I was able to check in any time that evening. My three daughters and I arrived... More

I am writing this on behalf of Irine Strauss and her staff at the Fairfax Holiday Inn Express who could not have been any more accommodating or welcoming to the people who did some training for FCPS the last week of June (June 25-June 28, 2014). They gave us a great price, worked with us to make sure that it... More

We arrived too early to check in to our rooms but the staff allowed us to place our luggage in a secured area so that we could travel downtown and see the sights before our long flight overseas. Nothing exceptional about this place but it's clean, close to Dulles, and the rates are reasonable.

Easy to access from both sides of street (drove to/from multiple points in Arlington during visit). Easy to find Metro (~150 yards down street). Easy to access multiple food locations. Free WiFi was easy to engage. Quick and... More
