“What's with the bad reviews???”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Despite reading the reviews here that complained about it being "dated" and "not a real Hyatt", I booked the hotel anyway as it was conveniently located near family we were visiting.

I am glad I did!

We stayed here for 5 nights in July and found the staff really lovely, the room clean and very spacious and overall great value. Now we didn't use the restaurant or gym but for what we needed, a place to stay with comfortable beds... it suited us just fine.

With two little kids, we appreciated the big sitting area and while the hotel is predominantly geared for business, all the space on the ground floor is great for roaming kids.

We would stay at this Hyatt again.

Over many years I have stayed at this property I always enjoy and find myself coming back. The rooms are always cleans and well kept. The beds are comfortable, t.v.'s are up to date with wide screen. The rooms are quite where you don't hear a lot of noise if any. The staff personnel are always kind, courteous and in-tune with my every need.

It's located close and convenient to interstate 66 which takes you to and from DC only 20 minutes away. You are a short drive from everything you want/need restaurants, shopping (Fairfax Mall just only a 1/2 mile down the road). Dulles International Airport is also only short distance away.

I highly recommend this Hyatt Hotel when traveling in and around Fairfax, VA area!

Enjoyed our stay last night. The hotel lobby was chic, modern and beautiful although the hallways could use a makeover to compete with the lobby.. The breakfast buffet this morning was fresh and full of choices complete with a friendly staff and good service. The highlight of our stay though was our panoramic suite. These suites are located on the end of the hotel and are sweeping half circles wrapped around the entire end of the hotel allowing for a 180 degree circular shaped room featuring three very large glass sections- much larger than windows. For a new take on a hotel room this was the place to be! Never experienced such rooms at any other Hyatt or any other chain for that matter. Took my breath away!

I normally love staying at Hyatt hotels but this one was just ok. The lobby is nice but the rest of the hotel is dated & worn. It's been years since I have stayed in a room were I could clearly here the people in the room next to me. Hope not to have that experience again soon. I would stay elsewhere at least until they renovate.

Stayed at the Hyatt Fairfax for business and was not impressed. I will start with the pro's- front desk very nice, lobby which I believe has been redone nice, mattress very comfy. Cons- Felt very institutional walking down the narrow and dark hallway to my room. Room size was great but the furniture was very worn. The little sofa had stains on the seat, bed side tables had marks all over them. Not normally a Hyatt frequent guest and this reminds me why I go with Hilton.

Fantastic breakfast, wonderful friendly service...we enjoyed the indoor swimming pool with our kids. We met Rebecca, who we enjoyed conversation with and she was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to staying here again.

The receptionist took us to the airport because we had no ride and had come all the way from Africa on a mission trip. This occurred after miscommunication with transportation and a place to stay after having missed our connection from Dulles to Denver. She treated us like family.
