Finding this place was very helpful because we couldn't move into our new house for 10 days and needed a 2-room suite for family and cats. Clarence was also helpful to help lift our suitcases and we were thankful because I had torn a ligament in my back. Main negatives were the hotel allowed nasty smokers in the garden area... More

We had a short family getaway in Washington, D.C.. This is a great location outside of the city but still close to the freeway and not too far from the nearest local Metro line into Washington. The Hotel is near a suburban shopping mall and decent restaurant chain. This is one of my favorite places to just outside the busy... More

The staff consistently provided outstanding service every day. My two room suite was well designed, clean, and spacious. Most evenings the hotel provided a free dinner with drinks and... More

We were in Fairfax visiting family and needed a larger space to accommodate me, my wife and our three young children. I chose the Residence Inn for location, complimentary hot breakfast and free parking. We checked in late, around 11pm, and the Front Desk associate was alert, friendly, and succeeded in getting us extra pillows. The hot breakfast was adequate... More

Staff was welcoming. It also has a basketball court. I was amazed with how nice this place was. It's about a half hour... More

My room was exceptionally clean and the placement of the hotel was super convenient. However, the best part about my stay was the front desk agent, Miss Karla. I arrived around 11:00 pm after a trying day, and I just wanted to go straight to my room. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by her smile and... More
