“Very happy...AGAIN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We recently visited this hotel for the second time, our first was November 2012. We came to the area for my son's birthday trip and decided to stay at Spring Hill Suites again because we had such a great experience the first time around. I had three boys with me, my 2 sons (9 & 10) and my son's friend (12). They loved the pool and the breakfast choices. The staff was just as friendly as before. We will definitely be back!!!!

This is my second opportunity to stay at this hotel (first time, July 2012) and it did not disappoint. Still a great rate, wonderful service and good to see familiar faces. Many of the people I worked with are still there. It's nice to be remembered after that length of time and considering the amount of people they saw since then. This location is close to Hwy 66 and some very good restaurants. Looking forward to visiting again.

When looking for this hotel, it was given good reviews by others so I figured I would try it. Was a great place overall and the bed was soooo comfy! I was a bit disappointed by the breakfast but discovered a love of nutella (is an offering with the jams/spreads on site). Was hopping for waffle bar but what they did have was decent overall considering. Location was central to a lot of areas for food and shopping and I ended up going to 2 DSW's in the area (and making purchases at each). I would definitely stay again as the staff were very nice and helpful. Once or twice they may have been a bit too cheerful but I appreciated their efforts toward service excellence. One downside out of the hotel's control is the traffic in the area...please be sure to be strategic as you travel throughout the day to get around, especially related to the evening rush hour. Otherwise, a great place to stay!

Dear caminkins99, On behalf of the staff of the SpringHill Suites, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to write about your stay, and glad that you found Nutella on our Breakfast bar. Nutella is a new offering on our breakfast with other jams, jellies, nuts, fruits, and deli ham and cheese. It seems that you had a great eperience shopping in the Fairfax area, and we are very close to the Fair Oaks Mall also. I hope that you will return to our hotel again in your travels, and thanks for staying with us.

Sincerely,

If you want to watch television this place sucks. The entire visit (and I'm sitting in my room RIGHT NOW) the television stations kept getting "stuck', as in the picture on the television would stop, stay that way sometimes for several minutes! This happened especially on certain channels. Morning shows, talk shows, news, etc. This happened the last visit here many months ago, too. I thought this was fixed. No one seems to be interested in getting this cable problem fixed.
Breakfast was a joke. Went down at the stroke of 6:30 a.m. to avoid tour bus crowds later and there were shriveled strawberries and sparse items as if it were the END of breakfast and they were running low on items.
Not my first choice of hotel when in the area, that's for sure.
Also, the two reddish-brown stains on the curtain should be cleaned. Disgusting, especially when I use my imagination of what it could be.

Dear Jen S, We appreciate your comments and I apologize for the problems you had with the TV channels, and the breakfast offerings. I would hope that you would contact us directly so that we can get more information and ask that you will allow us to show you that we have working cable stations. We recently switched our internet service, and this might have had some impact on your viewing the stations. We take all problems very seriously, and hope that if you are in our area again, you will let us know, so that we can upgrade your suite and give us a change to redeem ourselves. Hope to see you again.

Sincerely,
General Manager

We stayed in August to visit GMU, DC and NRA HQ/National Firearms Museum. This hotel has a great location near stores. Our rooms were equipped with refri, the breakfast was good.

We didn't have any problems as Gao at the front desk and the other staff took care of anything we needed. Gao took special care of us all.

We would stay here again for sure.
