“Great family hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We have stayed here several times to visit family in the hotel. We have always received excellent assistance and service. With two little ones under age four, this has always been our choice of hotel. We tried to stay at a sister chain once but they did not have breakfast included and the hotel pack and plays were not complete with a cover play. The Fairfax City Residence Inn provides freshly washed coverplays and bath toys every time, making this very convenient for travel with an already crowded car. We highly recommend this hotel.

Everything about this hotel is wonderful. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, the location is close enough to DC and other area activities without having to pay the price for being in the city, and the rooms are HUGE and very clean. Even though the hotel is designed for an extended stay experience, I would still recommend it for just a night or two if you have to stay in the area.

I wasn't expecting this to be such a nice hotel. Our room was incredible - huge bed, comfortable L shaped couch, full kitchen, really nice bathroom - everything felt new and clean. I actually wished we were staying another night and not moving on.

We are American but live in South America - we have gotten very tired of substandard hotel rooms at exorbitant prices in Chile so this was a welcome opportunity to stay in a great hotel at a very reasonable price. In Chile for this price, we would hope to have hot water but wouldn't be shocked if we didn't! sigh.

We heartily recommend this hotel if you are in the area. it is a great bargain and makes for a very nice stay.

If I had to be in Fairfax for an extended period of time and had to live in a hotel, here is where I would stay. Very nice rooms, super comfy bed, spacious, nice large flat screen TV, separate large sectional couch area, desk, WiFi, huge kitchen with full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, dishwasher, microwave - everything you need. Super nice breakfast downstairs each morning and really friendly staff. We loved our stay here. We were in town for a Dec 1 wedding. Really enjoyed this hotel.

I have stayed in this hotel several times since it opened. What an incredible place!
The staff is outstanding. The rooms are spacious with very large baths. There is a fully equipped small kitchen if you need it. Breakfast is included and there's plenty to choose from!
Right off of Route 66 and very convenient for Northern VA and D.C.

I stayed at the Residence Inn in Fairfax City for a couple of one week stays and also for a month while waiting to move into my permanent residence. This is a beautiful new hotel super convenient to everything. While the hotel and rooms are wonderful what shines even more are the staff who consistently went above and beyond any hotel I've ever stayed at. Big thanks to Nashan, Monyinette, and for making my move to Virginia the best it could possibly be.

Oddly enough I prefer the studio rooms to the 1 bedrooms which are on the ends of the building. Also wifi is better the more towards the center of the building. Otherwise this is a great hotel, can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: A room towards the center of the building again is best either facing north or east.
