Stayed here for a week on a business trip and it was surprisingly good. The room is large and has different 3 different areas: the Bed (which is quite comfy and large), living room (with a wide screen LED TV, and many open cable channels), sofa and a table, and a big kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, oven, stove and...

I recently stayed at this hotel for a week before moving into my new home in Fairfax, and had a very nice stay. The rooms are cleverly designed -- lots of built-in shelves and cubby holes for storage throughout -- and I quite liked the layout of the kitchen, with its built-in dining area. The gym is also well equipped,... More

Like the title of my review states, this is my go to hotel when I'm in the area. It is a little ways from the airport however I still think it's a top notch hotel for the price. The front staff are absolutely amazing. I usually arrive a little before check in and they have never turned me down or... More

This Residence Inn is very nice. It is either new, or recently upgraded, but either way, it's just great. We have stayed here twice, visiting our daughter at GMU, and it's about 10 minutes away. The staff is friendly and helpful (I like extra blankets!), parking is easy and (!) free, and the breakfast room is quite nice, little private... More

After a disappointing stay in another local hotel, we decided to stay at Residence Inn while in Fairfax for Family Weekend at George Mason University. So glad we did! Our room was huge (King suite) - clean, comfortable, and quiet. My only complaint about the room was that the sofa bed (where my son would be sleeping) was not made... More

The room is clean and comfortable. The bed - same! The employees are very professional and friendly. The exercise room is a bit out of the way (and you have to pass through the lobby to get to it; which is no fun) but is very clean, well-kept, and accessible 24-7. The breakfast buffet is fabulous. But ohhh the bathroom.... More

My husband and I stayed here on business just this past weekend and were truly impressed. The rooms were very clean, the staff was very friendly (everyone from the housekeeping staff, to the kitchen/breakfast staff, to the front desk staff always said "hello" and smiled!), and the overall ambiance was very relaxing.
