Fairfield is a franchise run by Marriott, for family-run hotels to meet agreed standards - and this hotel (just north of the runway threshold for Washington Dulles airport) matched the standards very well.
We had arrived from the UK, flying round the back of Hurricane Irene.
We got wet walking out of the Dulles airport terminal to "curb 2H" - the yanks meab "Kerb 2H" whereall the hotel courtesy buses pick you up. The courtesy bus is meant to run on a half-hour cycle and, given the weather, ther ran fairly close to the timetable!
A welcoming reception with cookies and free Internet.
the room was all we needed.
The staff could not have done more for us to make us feel welcome.
The free shuttle deposited us back to the airport the following morning, from where we walked to "curb 2E" and caught the 5A service bus which, for just six USD per head, runs you all the way into ashington DC. The railway won't reach Dulles until 2016 but cinstruction is well under way.
This hotel is well-placed; you are rarely aware that you're located within a mile of one of the North-South runways at Dulles.
This hotel, in fairfax county, is a USD15 taxi ride away from Herndon, where there is a good selection of restaurants.
The bath is shallow (no chance of a deep, wallowing bath!) but the shower is fine.
TV (satellite) has more than enough channels.
The hotel shares its estate with several other hotels (and another Marriot brand) plus three good eateries: Bob Evans, Santini's New York Diner and the Longhorn Steakhouse. within 300 yards, you can eat three different styles.
Having chosen this hotel "blind" from the marriott website, we were entirely satisfied.
