We were visiting family in the Fair Lakes area so the hotel is very convenient (I wouldn't recommend if planning a sight-seeing trip to DC - too far of a drive). We booked a 2 bdrm. suite for a family of 4. Having 2 separate rooms with 2 separate bathrooms was very convenient BUT, the rooms both had queen size... More

The room was a good size. I would recommend a room on the top floor since the floors are pretty thin and you can hear the person above you walking around. Glasses in the room were not clean, otherwise, the room was clean. Breakfast and Happy hour were excellent. Breakfast had a good selection - scrmabled eggs, bacon, potatoes, bagels,... More

This was our first trip to the DC area, and we sure picked a great place! From the front desk staff to the housekeepers everyone was wonderful. Special thanks to the breakfast ladies who were so wonderful in helping me and my kids. The front desk was so helpful in getting up directions to the metro and area restaurants. Couldn't... More

My 11 year old son & I recently stayed there for 8 days/7 nights (6/24-7/1) & I would highly recommend this hotel for several reasons. The biggest reason is the general manager, Jeremy, really has the art of customer service down to a fine science. I contacted him prior to my visit to find out if this location would work... More

My family recently spent 6 nights at this hotel. One of the main reasons we booked at this hotel was the availability of an outdoor pool and spa. After long days of sightseeing in Washington DC we were looking forward to relaxing by the pool and soaking in the spa. Not sure of VA laws but the first day we... More

The service and facilities were exceptional! The rooms were very comfortable and the facilities first class. Highly recommended! We will definitely be returning whenever we need a very special break.

Don't expect hospitality from the front desk people, that's all I'll say about them. The rooms are ok. The living room/full kitchen was a good size, but the bedroom seemed very cramped. Then again, I just wanted a place to sleep. Breakfast every morning was very nice. The lady who worked there was very friendly and hospitable to everyone, making... More

Before posting this review, I contacted Marriott International. Well, I got a response from Marriott International/Residence Inn, and I was appalled. We reserved and booked 13 rooms at this Residence Inn in FairLakes, because of the location and the price, and the included amenities. Well to make a long story short, a few guests were inconvenienced with clogged toilets, no... More

The newly renovated room was very pleasant, but both my husband and I found our bed very soft. As a result, we did not sleep well either night we stayed. My husband mentioned something about this to the manager, and he said it was new and included with the renovation package. We've desided to try another hotel next time we... More
