I travel in and out of DC on a weekly basis: My stay at the Candlewood Fairfax initially began as a 'short term stay' of about 3 months when my company checked me and couple other colleagues into this hotel. It has now been ONE YEAR and TWO MONTHS later since we've been 'virtually living' in this hotel largely due... More

Everything about this hotel is great. My room was extremely quiet and comfortable. I was able to sleep well, and accomplish my business at the large desk the suite provided. The staff was super super attentive and the location is superb for my needs in the greater DC area. I have been to other Candlewoods but they don't hold a... More

We absolutely love this hotel, it's next to many amenities such as a mall, and a great shopping center within walking distance. But it is more than just location to us it brings a sense of a second home to us. We enjoy the convienient of it's laundry facility, laundry room, and our favorite...... The Cupboard which is a room... More

I stay in hotels all over the world from 2 star to 5 star and am quite familiar with traveling and the consequences of a poor hotel choice. Whenever I am in the DC area, I choose this property and have for the past 10 years. I can't explain the feeling I have when I stay here, it's different than... More

I only stayed here just shy of a week, but enjoyed it. There were a good bit of trucks that were there, but didn't really hear the noise that other people mentioned. Could have been the time of year, I don't know. The place is set back off the road a bit so you don't even know it's there. The... More

The room stunk. The room was also not what we reserved. My wife looked at the room while I stayed in the lobby. She told the guy at the front desk that is was unacceptable and he indicated that it was the only choice we would have there. Not only did the room stink, but it was not clean as... More

I have contacted this guest after reading his review. I am very concerned after reading comments such as these which are highly uncharacteristic for the Candlewood SuitesFairfax. After discussing the events that transpired the evening in question, this guest has agreed to give our hotel another try in the future. I firmly believe they will find as other guests have,... More

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel for almost two years now every week. We needed to drive two hours to get there, and I worked on the weekends. We have not had a better experience. Not only is all the staff friendly, they are also very prompt in attending to requests and very accommodating. The rooms have... More

Majority of hotel guests are utility and construction workers as evidenced by the large number of pickup trucks in the parking lot. There is lots of noise -- slamming of doors and shouting in the hall between rooms -- with folks walking around openly with beer and other drinks in the halls and a stench of what i hope is... More
