The staff at this hotel is exceptional.The bar staff ( Walter) and dining room staff were extremely good.The food in the Dining room was excellent. The Tuna starter was one of the best I have eaten in any hotel world wide.The Bell Captain ( Mohammed ) was very helpful and was prepared to go the extra mile to satisfy the guests.

I stay at this hotel whenever I'm in the DC area. The lobby has been remodeled. Very fresh. The rooms are spacious. The best is the staff! They go out of their way to make you feel at home. I perfer the rooms that face the outside for the light. Having shopping at 200 stores so close is a bonus.

For my aunt funeral at Fairoaks Funeral Home, I had chosen to stay at this Fairfax Marriott and I was really happy with my stay - even though it was just one nite. Hotel is right on Lee Jackson Memorial Freeway, next to Fair Oaks Malls where guests can find lots of place to eat, and shop. I arrived late but everything was ready. Check-in agent was so nice to give me a brief talk about everything at the hotel. She even asked if I need to find smething to eat... Bedroom is clean, neat and spacious. Just one cons thing the hotel needs to improve: I tried to get some sleep, be ready for my family funeral next day but I heard people talking clearly from the oposit room (through the window and balcony). ope the hotel comes with some solutions for this.
On the next morning, I went downstair and had buffet breakfast . reasonable price, nice atmostphere, good services....
Check out is a piece of cake. Fast, efficiency.
Generally, I will stay again here on my next visit.

Rooms clean & comfy, staff polite & attentive. Even the bellhop shared a few ideas on how to enjoy DC. A bit of a drive (30 min) from the downtown DC. Food is wonderful. Perfect for a short stay. Grab hotel card before you leave as there are other Marriotts in the area.

We stayed for 2 nights with our toddler & he simply loved running around the Atrium courtyard. Lobby is tastefully done. Rooms are spacious.

I was there in April 2013 for three nights. It is the staff that makes this hotel one of the friendliest ones. The front desk staff were exceptional, as was the morning restuarant staff. They remembered guests names when they returned.

Room Tip: A lrge shopping mall and fabulous restuarants are across the parking lot. Quiet hotel. Lots of busin...

I liked this hotel. The front desk was friendly and seemed to be interested in us having a good stay.
The room was functional rather than fussy. It was clean and tidy, not as luxurious, maybe, as other Marriott's we have stayed at, but very spacious and we were very comfortable here.
We had access to the concierge lounge for breakfast, which was perfectly fine, though not spectacular. There were eggs, but no bacon or sausage, which struck me as funny.
We ordered room service one night and the food was really good, and reasonably priced.

We had a few little issues, but nothing major.My husband was slightly irritated at check-in when the bell-hop asked him to move his car half way through checking in. We were parked in the 15 minute parking in front of the hotel, and my husband had to return to the car to get his passport, when he was asked to move because a hotel bus full of airline staff was due to arrive. It was annoying, sort of insinuating that we were not as important. They may well be regular guests, but still. It was only an irritation, but you do tend to remember such things.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel had a relaxed vibe, and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. It was actually in the mall car park, which was very convenient for my teenage daughters, and the drive into DC was not too onerous, either. We would definitely stay here again.
