“clean, modern room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Stayed here 1 night in a king suite for a very reasonable rate. Loved the L shaped sofa (so much better than hotel chairs), fridge, microwave & computer area being separate from the sleeping area. The very white linens were a nice touch, easy to tell they were clean! We were lucky to face a small courtyard so no road noise. Breakfast had a good selection of options from healthy: Greek yogurt w/ a number of 'mix in' options, scrambled eggs & Kashi cereal to more sugary options: sweetened cereals, mini donuts & poppy seed cake. The waffle makers were not working but are apparently often available. Friendly staff throughout.

Room Tip: Facing small courtyard has less noise

The hotel is clean and well light with nicely appointed rooms. Although there seemed to be a respectable number of guests in the hotel, it was always quiet. The hotel staff were ultimate professionals who checked to make sure everything was meeting/exceeding my expectations. No thanks to VA DOT / Fairfax county zoning, the road into the hotel is not the most user friendly in that it requires a u-turn to get back to Route 50. Nonetheless, I would definitely stay here again when on company business in the area.

Hello, We appreciate your comments, and hope that the next time you are in the Fairfax area, that you will stay at our new SpringHill Suites. We always strive to give our guests exceptional service, variety of our hot breakfast offerings, and exceeding your expectations. We realize that the hotel entrance is on one side of the road, and is more easily accessable though our garage. Again, we like to hear your comments, and hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
General Manager

The hotel is new, has a friendly staff, very good breakfast, and you cannot help but appreciate the well lite and spacious parking garage. If arriving from the south you have to make a u-turn to get into the parking area/hotel driveway which is rather inconvenient but easy to do.

The one drawback on the hotel is the level of road noise that comes into the rooms. The angle of the hotel on the intersection means that both sides of the hotel cannot escape road noise. Fortunately the roadways are used almost exclusively by cars rather than large loud trucks.

Room Tip: Get a room toward the west end of the hotel.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our new hotel, and I am sorry that the entrance to the hotel is a little turnaround at the corner entrance. Our garage can provide a drive through to Government Center Parkway, a easier exit. I hope that if you return to our area, that you will let us know in advance, so that we can provide you with exceptioinal service, a great breakfast, and upgrade you. Again, thank you and hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,
General Manager

The staff make it a great stay. Comfy rooms. Good location for Northern Va. Plenty of food, drink, entertainment, shopping if u must, and outdoor opportunities. $5.00 movie Wednesday at the nearby 14 screen multiplex.

This was a very pleasant place to spend four nights. We found our mini-suite room well appointed and very comfortable. The included breakfast offered many options, including several hot items, such as waffles, eggs, breakfast meat (which varied by day), oatmeal and mini-quiches. One feature that I have not seen too often elsewhere is the availability of beer and wine in the cold drinks cooler in the lobby.

More than anything what stood out for my wife and I was the uniformly pleasant and helpful service provided by the reception desk staff, the breakfast room attendant and the woman who serviced our room.

The hotel is located just off I 66 within a short drive to many restaurants, a shopping mall and other shopping areas, the Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, George Mason University and downtown Fairfax.

We would certainly stay here again and we recommend it to all.

Stayed one night Dec 6, 2012. Hotel was very clean and was a good location for my appointment.
Breakfast was pretty good. Staff was friendly but not overly friendly. Overall experience was good but not a "wow." I would stay again because of the location.

We recently stayed here and really enjoyed this place. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and appreciated. Our room was great. The decor was very modern, clean, and fresh. We would definitely stay here again in the future.
