“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The front desk was extremely nice and very helpful! I checked into my room and it was very clean, spacious and invariably sweet smelling. I used the workout room which had actually decent machines that worked very well. I forgot my headphones but the front desk provided a pair. The hotel is shaped like a cube with rooms facing outside (I think) and rooms facing the atrium across from other rooms. I had an atrium view. Honestly, for $70 (it was a Saturday), you really couldn't beat it. Free WiFi for Marriott rewards members. Starbucks coffee in the market.

I didn't eat there but there is a breakfast buffet for about $15 that my friends have partaken in and have enjoyed. Ample parking (however, it is located outside the Fair Oaks Mall Circle of Death) so if you need to take a left turn....be careful!

They also got me extra pillows and put me on a high floor as requested. They definitely acknowledge if you're a Rewards member. Plus, the young front desk attendant is cute so that got them the 5th star. LMAO!!!

Room Tip: I believe the rooms with even numbers face the atrium where the odds would face the outside. (I thi...

This was our first stay at the Marriott Fair Oaks. A full-service hotel in a great location. Since we are members of the Marriott Gold Elite, we could use the concierge room on the 6th floor. Our reservation was for a king room, but we were given a room with two queen beds which was fine. The room was spacious, quiet and very clean. The workout room was very clean, but one of the ellipticals was not working. This is an excellent business hotel that is reasonably priced.

Room Tip: For a quiet room, ask for a room that does not overlook the atrium.

This is a classic Marriott and has good location for shoppers but needs to update it's beds, furnishings, bathroom and electrical outlets. Our room had flickering lights and the clock radio went out after resetting it 3 times. The rooms had double beds, not queens and queens were not available for reservations at this hotel. I'm guessing they haven't switched over because of the room size issue of being an older Marriott. Also, the shower is nice but the bathroom had no fan so it steamed up all the time. The beds are "Soft" not much firmness to the mattresses. If you like a soft bed this is the place. This hotel has a beautiful atrium and a Starbucks/Market in the lobby and the service is solid all around. Their is a pool and they had a lifeguard on duty--but the "hot" tub was a "cold" tub they just cleaned it on Friday evening? (maybe should've been cleaned earlier in the day for a weekend? You will need a car to stay here the nearest Metro stop is in Vienna if you want to venture to DC for the day. Overall if you need a place to plop your head I would give an okay rating. It has potential to be a true Marriott with updating of their rooms.

Room Tip: If you are not with your family and are a couple get a King size bed room. The doubles are soft and...

I stay in hotels every week so I know what amenities meet my needs. This Marriott offers them. Rooms are clean, staff is extremely polite and helpful, and they even offer Starbucks in their cafe. The availability of a Concierge is an added plus for meetings and evening coffee. Excellent business hotel.

Clean but very dated. They have flatscreen tvs in the rooms but that's about it. The location is excellent if you like the Fair Oaks mall and all the restaurants there. Fair Oaks mall is a super mall. The concierge lounge in this hotel is decent but not the best.

We just spent another couple of weekends at the Marriott Fair Oaks Mall and we always enjoy this hotel. This property is much nicer than other hotels in the area, but has very reasonable weekend rates. Nice safe area, and convenient to restaurants at Fair Oaks Mall and Fairfax Corner. We will definitely stay at this hotel again on our next visit to Fairfax!

The staff has been trained to perfection. The front desk staff was more professional and competent than almost all the hotels I have stayed at. The lounge was well stocked on club level and staffed extremely well. My only ding was that I was in a room (576) under a type of small conference room. The staff was setting up shortly before 6am above me and making a horrific amount of noise. I can imagine that adjoining rooms also heard it. If they set up that early, they should be mindful of the guests sleep. Other than that a great hotel. Kudos to the super friendly and competent staff.
