“great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

This is a fairly new hotel so it has a nice modern look and is very clean. The rooms are a good size and the breakfast is great. We usually stay on weekends when the prices are very reasonable. Service was great. we needed a few things and teh front desk accomodated us vey quickly. On one of our stays we had a small problem with a shower that leaked, just a little. Once we told the front desk about teh problem it was fixed immeadiately.

Was in the hotel for business and for one week. Rooms where very spacious and clean. With nice desk to do some work. Also we used the conference room for the week as an office, the conference room was also very good. The Beamer could be better, very low resolution and slow in starting. Food was also good so in total for me a good business hotel.

We have stayed at other Residence Inns, but this one far surpasses any of them. We had a one bedroom suite that was larger then some apartments. The kitchen was lovely and had beautiful appliances. The living room was large, had a spacious desk and a large flat screen tv, and large sofa. The bedroom had a beautiful king sized bed that had tiny reading lights on each side of the headboard. There was a clean, spacious bathroom and a separate area for the sink.
The breakfast area was large and could accommodate a large crowd. It has several booths where you could eat and watch tv. The food selection was more then adequate: eggs, waffles, sausage, many bread and cereal varieties and fruits and yogurt.
I cannot compliment this place enough. The employees were welcoming and very helpful as well. I would not hesitate to return to this facility. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: A studio would have been more then adequate, but it was a treat to stay in this suite. Don't hes...

I picked this property based on the fantastic rate of $89 a night on the Marriott website. We stayed for three nights, Thursday through Sunday. The staff at check in was wonderful and very helpful with restaurant suggestions. We got settled in our very spacious king studio with a great bathroom and kitchen. We noticed an abundance of outlets throughout the studio, which was very convenient. Our only negative regarding the room was the water pressure - likely restricted by a water-saving regulator.

Breakfast in the morning was adequate, but packed with people. We actually chose to eat at Denny's (about a block away) to avoid the crowds. We didn't experience any evening meals at the property. Coffee service 24/7 was a nice touch, though.

Location is great if you are doing any business in the area. Otherwise, even with a great rate, the traffic is dismal (especially on the 66 and 495). I lived in the DC area all my life until 1997 but the traffic has become insane (worse than when I lived there.) MetroRail is always an option but there were several track maintenance closures during our stay with bus service between closed stations - not a very timely option.

This is my first of three nights here, and I can already give this hotel an unqualified 5 stars if you have reason to be in the area. I am here on business with three other people, and I find the room to be huge, stylish, absolutely spotless. There is a full kitchen (perhaps no oven), but a stovetop, sink, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, dishes, wine glasses, utensils, etc. And a microwave. There is a marble topped bar with two stools, and then a sofa and coffe table, a large work desk with free internet service, and plenty of good lighting! It is tastefully decorated with dark wood and plenty of shelving and nooks to place your keys, jewelry, makeup, everything. Towels are huge and soft (not the kind that make you feel cold because they don't absorb moisture, you know?), and the sheets and bed coverings are clean and soft and fluffy. I had to get the maintenance man in to adjust the shade near my work desk, which would not go up, and he was extremely competent. He noticed how the original installer took a short cut instead of doing it right, so he took it all apart and did it right. When finished, he asked if he could borrow "my" paper towels, and carefully cleaned up the small mess he made with his drill. He even restored the triangular folded paper towel "look" that housekeepers always create. Can you believe this level of care? There is also free breakfast, AND free hot dinner every night. Tonight I saw people with plates of savory fragrant meat loaf! All this is $75 a night. It's very far from Washington DC, probably over 40 minutes by car, but if you have reason to be in Fairfax, as I do, this is stunning. Good work, manager!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are great -- mine overlooks the parking lot but with plenty of golden trees if...

I usually stay at the Residence Inn in Sterling when I'm in Northern Virginia for a week or two for work. I thought that and the Springfield properties were the most updated in the area. Well, Fairfax City is newer and it's the best of the Residence Inn properties in the region.

The lobby is bright and modern. The dining area has little cubbies with banquettes, tables, and TVs so a family can sit together during breakfast (or a weary business traveler can hide away and have some peace and quiet!). The rooms are modern and feel spacious, even though they are probably about 440 square feet. The closet is smaller than the closet in other Residence Inns, but it's large enough to hang everything you'd have with you for a week. The room lost in the closet is gained in the bathroom, which is much brighter and larger than the bathrooms at other Residence Inns. See my pictures...you'll be pleasantly surprised!

Parking is pretty easy right now, but I wonder how they'll do at full capacity. The location is great for anyone who has appointments around Fairfax County.

The only draw back is that the elevators are a little slow, but that's such a small detail that I wouldn't let it stop anyone from staying there.

Room Tip: You want a room on the parking lot side. There's a tad bit of noise on the Chain Bridge side of...
