My work took me to Fairfax for a short two day work trip. The ride from Dulles International airport was not excessive; however it is easy to see that traffic can be a major problem in the greater DC area. The check-in staff was efficient and courteous. My plan did not include breakfast and I did not use the spa, work-out room or pool so I cannot comment on the worth of quality of these. The location is convenient as a Giant grocery store is adjacent. For those not familiar with the Kroger branded Giant grocery chain the stores cover the full range of grocery and pharmacy needs. The hotel property was very well maintained and the trees, grass and shrubs were nearly perfect in all cases. The main building is brick and blends into the area and theme/style of the adjacent buildings very well. The parking lot is well paved and appears to have good drainage. There are a few restaurants in the area, notably Wendy’s which is only a five minute walk to the south. There are also an abundance of gasoline filling stations which make it easy to procure gasoline for a car should you have driven one to the property.
