“Very Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We stayed over the weekend for two nights with a great rate of $69.00 per night plus tax. We got this rate at the last minute at www.Marriott.com. We are platinum with Marriott, so our internet and breakfast over the weekend was free. The breakfast was just ok for full service Marriott - wish they had the made to order omelet & waffle station like other full service hotels.

The hotel is courtyard style. In the evening on Saturday night the courtyard area was very noisy. We had a room that did not face the courtyard, but did face the outside of the hotel. This room was very quiet. I imagine a room facing the courtyard would have been very noisy.

I liked the location of the hotel. It is in a mall parking lot. There are a number of restaurants there including The Cheesecake Factory.

The room was very clean and very nice. The staff was also very helpful. I forgot to bring an umbrella. It was pouring one of the afternoons and the bellman had umbrellas to loan out.

I would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

Staff is super friendly. Hotel is clean and rooms spacious. Too far from DC to use as a base. No free Wifi, unless you are a gold or platinum member. I am a Marriott member...other Marriotts in the area have free Wifi. In additon, bus loads of kids and in the morning they run around the courtyard screaming...which if you have an inner room wakes you up at 6am. Last time at this property- there others in the area that are just as nice.

The hotel is pretty well maintained and the services were good. The front face of the hotel is impressive. The rooms were also nicely decorated and the size of the room was also good. We were a group of friends travelling to Fairfax, for a cultural program. Our stay was complementary, so cant comment on the pricing bit! But I really enjoyed the couple of nights we stayed there. The only downside would be the location, which is not great if you are planning to see the DC museums, capitol hill and so forth. But otherwise I would recommend it!

The hotel is what you expect from a Marriott. Nice facilities, nice location, nice amenities. However the service sets it a step above some other Marriott properties. Jessi did a fabulous job at the front desk making check in and check out a great experience. Ask for her when you check in. She does a great job.

I am a frequent customer at the Fair Oaks Marriott, staying approximately 45-50 nights per year there. The change in management for the most part has been transparent. The staff are some of the most professional and courteous people I have ever encountered. They ALWAYS recognize me and greet me by name when I check in and that makes me feel like it is my second home. Thanks so much for operating an outstanding Marriott.

I normally stay here once year on my annual trip to DC, its convientley situated. The bar are restaurant staff are friendly and helpful. As I had been there every year for over 10 years I knew all the old staff and each year was greeted like they knew me, really refreshing rather than feeling like just another guest. But unfortunately Denis Buckley is no longer with the company, which is a huge disappointment, he oozed customer service, a real leader. It has made me think twice about staying somewhere different next year.
