“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Very clean and comfortable room. Abraham was most helpful (he even ran out the door to return my wallet which I had left on the counter when checking out). Would definitely return for another visit. Convenient to the subway which dropped us off right at the Smithsonian. Did a bedbug inspection and it came up clean.

We wanted to see Washington DC but couldn't justify the prices of staying in the city. After reading other reviews of the Fairfax Candlewood Suites decided that staying there for eight nights would fit just right. It was convenient to the metro train into downtown DC and located close to a mall and lots of places to eat. We had a car for getting around which helped. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean. Prices in advance ran about $100 per night plus tax of about $9.

Dear Pumkinridger
Thank you for your review of the Candlewood Suites Fairfax. We are glad we could provide you a comfortable alternative to the expensive DC hotels. While we do not offer shottle service to the Vienna Metro stop, we are only two exits west on Rt 66 to the Nutley Street station.
Tell your family and friends about us, and we look forward to having the opportunity to serve you again in the future !

We have stayed even longer than anticapated so it has been so comforting that the staff has been outstanding in their consistent friendliness and professionalism. Candlewood's greatest assest is their staff, especially Flor, Abraham, and Piyanut. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and provide a great nights sleep/ rest.

For the last 29 months, we've had our house in Texas on the market, even though our careers have since brought us to DC. I stayed in this hotel for nine months and was consistently pleased with the commitment to service and satisfaction. Of particular note are the sales director, Yvonne, and the desk staff I most often interacted with, Flor and Abraham. These are truly kind people who will do whatever is necessary to ensure the comfort of guests. With comfortable rooms that include kitchen facilities, you feel like you're in an apartment (except that someone else will clean it for you every week and change your linens). During my time away from home, I've stayed in Candlewood Suites hotels in Herndon, Portland (Ore.), and now Fairfax. Although they were all good, Fairfax is the one to rule them all. And they've promised to call me if any mail or packages for me arrive there.

Room Tip: Ask for a first-floor room near the free laundry area and the onsite gym. Some guests bring pets, so...

We stayed here during George Mason University's graduation. The room was well designed, clean and large. The staff was very accomodating and friendly, particularily the manager, Abraham.

We travel with a little dog and the hotels that accept pets are usually not this nice. There is a barbecue place, a little shop with snacks and a laundry. It is a very good location yet quiet.

We are planning another trip soon and are looking forward to staying there again.

Consistently comfortable, quiet and safe. The staff is incredible, the pillows are perfect for me and I really enjoy my suite on the third floor. I usually request the same suite as I have utilized this property for over 10 years while traveling. One day I'm sure they will put a wooden plaque on the wall to commemorate my stays! lol. But seriously, the mgmt is fantastic and very attentive. One guest recently mentioned that the rooms feel dated. Well you aren't paying to stay at the Ritz! And I feel the value is here. Clean and comfortable works just fine for me and all the other guests I have talked with over the years. So give Dave and his staff the chance to impress you with their superior service and overall attitude of excellence.

Candlewood Suites of Fairfax has helped my family to relocate to this area as an affordable option with a really accommodating staff, in a quiet and relaxed setting while meeting all the basic needs of home. From the management to housekeeping and maintenance, everyone ensured our family enjoyed the last day as much as the first. Thank you to everyone that made our stay here so enjoyable!
