“Nice suburban hotel outside of DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This Hyatt is located outside of DC, but still close enough to be convenient (and certainly a great value for the price). Rooms are spacious enough for our family of 4 (2 younger kids), and have good amenities (bath, flat screen TV). Plenty of parking in the parking lot as well.

It is located close to a retail mall in case you may need supplies during your trip.

It is also located within 10 or 15 minutes from the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center NASA Smithsonian museum, which has a great exhibition of planes, space shuttle, U-2, etc. The boys in the family loved it.

We chose the Hyatt Fairfax as the site for a 50th High School Reunion. The venue was perfect for our needs: hospitality suite, reception, dinner/dance, farewell breakfast. The guest rooms are roomy, mostly suites and clean. The food was great! The hotel's Nova Bar and Restaurant were perfect and a nice gathering place for participants. The hotel is located within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shopping. In addition, the hotel will provide transportation to Vienna metro and short distances from the hotel. Special thanks to Theresa King and James Lao for making it happen!

We recently spent the weekend at the Hyatt Fair Lakes taking advantage of their cheap summertime rates. The hotel is a little bit older than most Hyatt Hotels, the furniture in the rooms is quite worn as is the carpeting in the hallways but aside from that the quality is very good, with the usual comfort that you come to expect with a Hyatt hotel. My only critique was that despite asking for help with our luggage, no bellman ever showed up and we had to unload our quite substantial amount of luggage ourselves. The walls are rather thin, I could hear the person next door to me coughing so if you need 'dead quiet' this might be an issue, for us though it was no big deal. The breakfast is very good and well worth the value. We ended up booking 3 more nights there later in the week at the back end of our stay in the Fairfax area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators and noise which on the weekends is considerable.

Traveled for the first time to Virginia was not used to traveling alone but Rebecca and the staff at Hyatt made me feel at home. The room was very nice and comfortable; sitting area with a rotating flat screen and a queen bed on the other side with a separate area with a desk for catching up with my work. The staff member Emmanuel (hope I got your name right) was very nice and polite when I would go order my dinner/snack from the market which was very convenient. The hotel is close to the Vienna Metro (2 miles) and with the shuttle service provided by the hotel made it possible to go and visit the National Mall. I definitely will be back but next time with the kids.

Since this is mainly a business location, many families also utilize the facility for weddings, family reunions, etc. Very young (toddlers) children are left to run around in halls unsupervised between rooms (apparently family members are separated) very late at night disturbing business-people. This is not Disney so I was quite angry at these families and their lack of consideration for other guests. These type of guests should be limited to a "family" floor and travelling family members should be in rooms next to each other with the internal lockout door, to preclude this type of disturbance to the business guests

However, overall great service from all the staff. Rebecca and Andrew did a really great job, especially when the complementary ride service (not Hyatt affiliated) did not show up for a ride to the Metro.

My husband and I travel northeast to visit family and friends once or twice a year. If we are tired and want a place to rest, we seem to always find this hotel. We love it! The staff is so friendly and professional. Our king size bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was awesome. Rosa, the breakfast attendant was great! She made sure we had what we needed.

Room Tip: We haven't had a problem with our room, whenver we stayed overnight. We usualy had a king-sized...
