“one of the best I've stayed at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I am a loyal Marriott customer and stayed here to be close to the Vienna metro station to get into DC. The rooms were really nice, great showers, very clean, safe location, helpful and courteous staff. Really good continental breakfast too. Highly recommended.

The room is very nice. Everything is new. The kitchen is stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Full sized appliances but only enough sitting area for two people in the kitchen. The sitting area with the desk had large drawer space and the couch is comfortable enough to sleep on without pulling out the sofa bed. The bed was very comfortable. The pillows were a bit small but there were five on the bed. The bathroom was a perfect size more than enough space. Everything was always clean and it didn't bother me that the linens weren't changed everyday. It was like being at home except for the laundry facilities costing $2 each. The room wasn't cold and maybe to some warm but it cooled off enough for me to sleep comfortably. I do have a higher tolerance to heat than some. The hallway and elevator area was so cold you needed a jacket. Enjoyed the breakfast but the dinner (Mon - Thurs) was very basic and opted to eat elsewhere most nights. The gym was quite nice and liked that I could go anytime. The pool didn't seem to be used much and it was a bit small of an area and in the shade most of the time. I never used it though. Would recommend this hotel and hope to stay here again.

What a wonderful hotel. Rooms were clean, really nicely decorated. I really liked the fact that the bathroom had a huge glassed in shower...no tub...but I could see if you were a family staying here with little kids, that may be a problem. Kitchen was really nice, nice plates and glasses, a really cool island like eating area facing the TV and work area. Refrigerator was clean and quiet. Cool cooktop. Massive sleeper sofa. Great computer work space and nice TV that swiveled to face either the sofa or the bed. Really comfortable pillows too!
My only complaint was I could not get the room cool enough. Room was hot when I first entered and it took many hours to get the temp down to a comfortable level. I like a really cool room and it never really got to the temp I wanted.
Great buffet breakfast, all the food you could ever want, with real dishes!
They even served a buffet dinner, which is included in the room price, as was breakfast.
Would definitely return.

Room Tip: rooms can be a long walk from the elevator, may want to request something close to elevator.

The Inn is new, in a great location, two short blocks from downtown Fairfax. Staff went above their duty to print out maps and directions for me to get around Fairfax and gave me alternative ways to get home to avoid the parking lot on I95. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with a large glassed in shower area , more like a spa,and at such a great price. Nice breakfast area and it's free! I highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at room 207 for three nights on a business trip. The rooms are large, clean with all necessary amenities. Breakfast is excellent; there is also free snack at dinner time. The staff is professional and very helpful.
The only complaint is that the internet is so slow.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

The staff was very kind and hospitable. We found the property to be extremely clean, something that is very important to us. Breakfast is better than " the usual" hotel breakfasts most places offer with many choices that were fresh, healthy, and tasty. Our room was extremely clean and kept cleaned daily bu the housekeeping staff. We would HIGHLY recommend this hotel and staff!
