Stayed here March of this year for 3 days (in wednesday out saturday). Got this room on priceline .... i knew there was a catch to getting a room this nice at 45 bucks a night where 2 of the days of the stay were weekdays.
Good: One of the nicest hotels i've been in ... everything was/is brand-new, beautiful, perfect condition. Decoration was nice, best sleep i've ever gotten in a hotel I wanted to take the bed with me....I think I even asked them how much were the pillows. Room-service was nice, remember them giving me extra waters just because and the room was delicious, everything I ordered was awesome....i ate a lot of room service i'll get to why in the cons tho. Fastest and free internet i've ever experienced in a hotel....almost as fast as my very hi-speed wireless at home. Nice front desk.
Cons: Snooty front restaurant staff, at least the 2 ladies I remember asking about warming something up for me in their microwave which the only one in the entire hotel was in the kitchen (weird). Oh yeah no fridge or microwave in my room and couldn't request any. I ordered a lot of room service because I was in the WORST LOCATION EVER. The location alone made me DEATHLY AFRAID to bid 3 star on priceline for fairfax ever again. It's stuck up inside of GMU campus....it's ON GMU campus....terrible terrible location if you have absolutely nothing GMU related going on in your life. I felt like I stuck stranded out in the boonies. Public trans forget about it unless you want to share the school's bus transportation for the student or you'll have to get a cab. So.....hope you have a car. And the whole "you need a keycard to use the elevator" was super annoying. I feel bad to give such a nice hotel such a sucky rating.... but the location killed it....I can't put inton enough words how much I hate the location this hotel is in and for that I'd never want to stay here again.
