“Too Good To Be True!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

We have been consistently wowed by this hotel. Our first stay was in August 2010 as guests for a wedding and we were impressed by every aspect. Our latest stay was part of a package: Escape! Romance. With the package you got complimentary champagne and strawberries (which were delicious) and a breakfast buffet for two (which was terrific as well). The location is perfect for shopping and for travel into DC, the hotel is easy to access, the accommodations are clean and appealing and the customer service is everything you could want. Most impressively, all of this was less than $100 for the night. It is the perfect choice for both a weary traveler and a weekend getaway.

This is my second stay at this Marriott, and both times have been great experiences. This hotel is in a wonderful location and is a great value. I stayed with several of my students and their parents when we attended a speech and debate tournament at GMU. The mall is across the parking lot, and it has many, many stores, including H&M, Lord and Taylor, and Macy's. The Cheesecake Factory is in the mall, and there are many other restaurants near the hotel to choose from. The hotel itself is comfortable and clean with a good staff. My only complaint would be the internet connection. I had trouble with it for most of my stay, but I eventually got a connection, and since I was a Marriott silver member, the connection was free. We flew into Regan because we were able to get a cheaper flight out of New Orleans, but Dulles is 10 minutes away from this hotel. Caution: If you do fly in from Reagan, allow extra time to get from the Fairfax area to Reagan. We thought we left in plenty of time, but we ended up running through the airport to make our flight. The traffic was truly some of the worst I have ever seen.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the atrium, and some face outside. I did not know this, so you would have to ask...

Stayed at this Marriott for 5 days on a business trip. Took my wife with me so she could shop. Having platinum elite status, as usual, we where place on the concierge floor. It was a warm week. The room was so hot, we could not sleep. We complained to the front desk, but was told the AC gets turned off Nov 1st. They said this is standard practice by all Marriotts! I have been staying at Marriotts for 10+ years and have never had this issue. I stay at this hotel a lot, but no more. I feel that when you pay for a room, you should be able to make it as could as you want. I have had some very serious issues with Marriott properties in the past year. I am a Diamond status with Hilton. If Hilton would transfer my points to their plan, I would quit Marriott. Service has gone down hill, rooms dirty and some concierge rooms serving poor quality food. I am back in the area this next week and I am not staying at this hotel.

The staff here is very cordial and welcoming. The service is nice and if there is a problem they fix it quickly. I have stayed here on several occasions and always have found the quality of the hotel and the staff terrific. If you need to do a little shopping the hotel is on the entrance to the Fair Oaks Mall.

The hotel staff went above and beyond to help me and were all very friendly-- really. Every single one of them! The hotel restaurant offered very yummy tummy-fillers! Being near the mall was nice, too!

This was the 4th time I have stayed in this hotel over a 3 year period and as usual it was a very good experience.

* OVERALL QUALITY: Very good
** The rooms are very clean & well laid out.......desk, couch & coffee table, beds very comfortable. Bathrooms a little small.
** Ancilliary areas: good work out room, pool very good, conference rooms are excellent.
** Restaurant & bar: bar and restaurant good (sometimes service can be a little slow). Continental breakfast is good with good selections & waffles and pancakes are included - order from the waiters. Staff are very friendly. Bar has very good drinks.

* PRICE: not sure about the regular prices but Priceline is in the $80 to $90 range.

* LOCATION: Excellent. If you are going to stay in the Fairfax area then it is a great location. It is very close to the main highways so it is easy to get around. Also if you want to shop or have a place to eat (multiple places -- including a Cheesecake Factory & Starbucks....what else do you need) it is a very short walk (4-5 minutes) to the Fair Oaks mall. It is a very nice mall if you want to shop or just have something to do.
NOT GOOD....If you intend to go into DC very often then you should stay closer in. The subway is not very close to Farifax and the rush hour traffic is extremely heavy.
