“Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

What a great place to stay! The room was spacious, clean and COMFORT-able but that's in the name. The lobby was welcoming as were the staff. We relaxed in the lobby and made some new friends. The shuttle to the Metro was convenient and made our journey's into DC so easy. Lots of places nearby to eat or shop and the 'old town' area was quaint and inviting. I've already recommended this hotel to others and will certainly stay there when we return to this area.

Room Tip: It seemed that any choice would be a good one. I never heard any other guest complain, not once.

Rooms were large. Service was excellent! Close to the metro. We had 6 of us staying in the same room and it was comfortable. Pool was enjoyable and breakfast was a plus! I would definitely stay here again!!

Two words; Hero Brian

I bring my daughter and her friend to the Fairfax area over the summer for figure skating training. I decided to stop in the hotel much earlier than check in time. The kids ran in to see if the room was ready while I sat outside making some calls. Not only did Brian let us check in early but he also let the girls pick out the floor and room before I even walked in the lobby. From that point the girls referred to Brian at the front desk as Hero Brian!

The following week we stayed at a different hotel. The girls ran in before again me expecting the front desk to let them pick their room. The front desk personnel wouldn't even speak to the girls until I walked in. They were highly disappointed and asked to leave and go to the hotel that "Hero Brian" worked at.

You can stay at a fancier hotel but I assure you there's no "Hero Brian" there.

This hotel is clean, reasonably priced, perfect location for where we are going and the staff is very welcoming! Don't let the outside appearance fool you!

We came for our honeymoon and stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi. The room was so clean and the bed was very comfortable. I have never stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi in it so it was very exciting and made our night. The placement of the jacuzzi in the room is very unique and is the connection between the room and bathroom. It was very romantic. In the morning we had a delicious hot breakfast. The staff working in the breakfast was very efficient and the food was great. The staff at the front desk was also very welcoming and helpful. Staff all around was pleasant and helpful and efficient. Overall the hotel was very clean and was in a very good location, close to dc. I would definetly recomend this hotel, especially for a romantic get away in a room with a jacuzzi.

Room Tip: kind bed with jacuzzi

I would rate this hotel higher based on the staff's service. All were helpful and friendly. I was especially impressed with the ladies who kept up with the continental breakfast. There were a lot of people eating at the same time, but they kept moving and therefore never ran out of anything. Five stars to those ladies! Otherwise, there were a lot of inconvenient quirks about this hotel. First, it is two separate towers and the one in which we stayed required that we carry our luggage up a few stairs to catch the elevator. Not horrible, but a pain when you have heavy bags. The game room required a separate key and none of the games seemed to work. We lost our money twice and then gave up. Bathroom was tiny -- hard to move around in. The fitness room also required a separate key -- the room key will not open it. Again, not horrible, but why can't the room key work? I've never seen this in any other hotel. However, the fitness room/equipment was great! Lots of options, good dumbbells and weight machines, treadmills, etc. I was impressed with the fitness room. Overall, it's just an older, mediocre hotel, but the stay was good because of the staff's effort.

The hotel was actually nicer that I expected. The room even had a hot tub!!! Still nice though, even thought the shower was on the small side. The hotel is located in such a way that you have access to Dulles International Airport and also access to the D.C. area.
