Chairs squeaking on floors above and a lumpy sofa bed are the main problem for this well located property. Service was great. Breakfast was outstanding. And the too small single bathroom sink was only a little difficult for two people. Pricey but nice.

Greetings Markchat, We greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete a review of our hotel. I’m so glad you had a great experience with our staff and got a chance to enjoy our delicious breakfast! Since our hotel is new it does have a pumped concrete construction which does offer a great soundproof option over other local hotels. Next... More

This is the third time we have stayed here over the past 3 years. The staff are exceptional, rooms are clean and comfortable, and all the common areas are maintained to the highest standard. Most of the staff are the original crew. Their exceptional service is a reflection of the great management here. We will be back again.

Great place to stay. Nice rooms, very clean and well taken care of. The breakfast buffet was wonderful with lots of great choices. Even the coffee was good and that doesn't happen very often at hotel breakfasts. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our stay a few extra days. The hotel was sold out but they managed...

We had a nice weekend at a wedding in Fairfax, VA. We had a bunch of rooms blocked off at this hotel. It was nice. It is very big and regular type hotel rooms, as opposed to other Residence I have stayed in that are larger or more townhouse/apt style. The rooms have kitchens, living room, large desk area, bed...

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.
