The head manager was outgoing and personable. Fairfax is a quaint and historic city with plenty of shops and eateries. The staff was great. We especially liked the breakfast staff, who were always helpful. Breakfast was much better than most places we stay in the US and usually held us until dinner.

This hotel is superb. We are not world travelers, but budget travelers on our first trip to DC. I used some Marriott points to get this hotel and it was by far the best hotel we stayed in on our trip. The breakfast was delicious each day - fresh eggs (not instant), meats, fruits, etc. The hotel appears to be... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, and really was impressed with this hotel, especially given the low price. For $89 a night, you're just not going to do any better than this, in any city. It's a fairly new hotel, so everything is still very clean and neat. The lobby is nice, and the breakfast area is probably the most comfortable... More

Nice lobby and dining area. Breakfast selection seems to be a lot better than the other Residence Inns that I have stayed in recently. Comfortable rooms (good size and quiet) and reasonable rates. Location not within a walkable distance to retail or restaurants.

I had a one-night stay early this week. The room is comfortable, nicely laid out, and has a comfortable bed and work space (including comfortable seating to meet with a person or three). The breakfast is very good. However, the desk drawer was full of trash (used tissues, gum wrappers, old lipsticks); there were used toothpicks underneath the phone on... More

Then Continued right down to Fairfax to then head back to the capital the following morning. About a 15-20 min ride from Fairfax to... More

Great hotel! Almost like home but with maid service. Comfortable room with kitchen. Breakfast and evening snack. Personable staff. I have stayed at most hotels in the area. This place is at the top of my list. I will be back!
