We stayed in this hotel on our way out of town, while the movers were moving our stuff from our home in Fairfax City for our move to Florida. We have both stayed in many Residence Inns, and this one is truly a step up. The rooms are beautifully appointed and seem larger than in other Residence properties.
The breakfast is excellent, and the serving staff is gracious and prompt. (But, for a REAL breakfast go south on Chain Bridge Road (VA 123) about two blocks to US 29. Take a right (west) and go a couple of blocks to the 29 Diner...a classic landmark and a genuine diner.)
Public transportation to this property is possible, but the local CUE bus stops running about 8 p.m., so a car really is needed here.
For dinner, go south on Chain Bridge Road to old town Fairfax. Many choices...
Or go north on Chain Bridge Road into Oakton...Famous Dave's BBQ is excellent.
Or, ask for directions to Curry Mantra...a truly excellent Indian restaurant.
