I stayed at the Fair Oaks Marriott when business had me in the area. THe hotel lobby is beautiful...very impressive! The automatic doors were appreciated (why all hotels w/o door staff don't have them is beyond me). Check in was fast, but the clerk neglected to direct me to the right elevators and I wound up circling my floor almost entirely before finding my room. When I got to the right room, I realized that a different elevator bank was just a few steps down the hall.
The room was good...not brand new, but definitely a recent rennovation. Quirks: the closet is way too small. They mounted the ironing board and iron on the back wall of the closet, so some of the space is eaten up. Also, the closets aren't very deep.
While I was there, The Today Show did a study of hotel room germs and found that the little scarf on the bed is pretty rank, which grossed me out a bit. The couch had also seen better days.
Location was great, right off major highways, but along major "back roads" that would allow someone who knows their way around Fairfax County to get around easily. There's a mall across the parking lot and shopping centers all around, so there are plenty of places to get a meal (for the business travelers). The metro is a few exits down 66 (Vienna station) for those interested in going into DC.
All in all, I was pleased.
