This is the best place I have stayed (thus far) in Northern VA thus far. While the other hotels I've stayed at in this area are nice as well, Candlewood Suites / Sterling was the most comfortable and convenient. The rooms are very nice and amenities provided are nice as well. The energy of the staff (very important to me and enters into my rating) was also very good.
Thanks to Rosa (and others) for ensuring my stay was enjoyable. I will choose Candlewood Suites again.
