5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It was an absolutely amazing experience staying at Candlewood Fairfax. Rooms are just as described on website, extra facilities are very useful, laundry room and fitness centre. Most of all Abraham was extremely helpful polite friendly and proffessional. He was the only member of staff I managed to meet however I'm sure the rest of the staff deliver the same excellent customer service.

You cannot find a better place to stay in northern va!!!! I have stayed there on two different occasions and have never been disappointed. Its set in a very desired residential area close to shopping, resturants and the metro. Service if fantastic and they love dogs!!!! The free extras they have are life saving, small mini store with atm, free coffee, free laundry, and a very nice gym, and the most comfortable beds of any place I have ever stayed. The service staff is amazing expecially Abraham who after almost 2 yrs remembered me and my dog, always helpful and professional!!!! Will always stay there when ever I am in DC!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the back of the hotel open up to woods and are very quiet, I love the one bedroom s...

The Hotel was perfect for an extended 1 week stay while I looked for a new home in the area. It had everything I needed and it was pet friendly. The rate I received was unbeatable.
And that staff was super friendly and accommodating. They even had a customer appreciation BBQ while I was there with Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Beer, and wine.
It was a great stay. I would definitively recommend it.

Awesome people taking care of us here! I stayed for over 3 months and everyone at the hotel is top-notch. I stayed with my dog, and they were so nice and patient with us. Everyone from Abraham to Angelina to Dave the GM were great! Highly recommend this hotel.

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 !
