We stayed at the Hyatt Fairfax as it was very close to where we were having a training course. I found that the staff in the Hyatt were extremely friendly and helpful, and especially those working on the front desk. The room I had was on the 10th floor and was nice and quiet so I was well able to recover from my long haul flight. The room was clean and was nice and comfortable.
It's close to Dulles as well (taxi was $30) but not so close to any public transport. A Taxi to and from the Metro was costing around the $25 mark each way so that was an added expense that we didn't foresee in our trip planning.
There is a shuttle service available but it need to be booked early and we managed to use the service for a very local trip to a restaurant but it was not available for us in the mornings when we needed to get to the metro.
As a base for my training course in Fair Lakes I though it was excellent but as a center or a base for tourists wanting to get about without any rental car or transport of their own it is not ideal. There was also a lack of any visitor information leaflets in the lobby (metro maps, city maps, amenities, attractions etc..) A few of these would certainly have helped me choose a tour as the city of DC is well worth a visit.
