This was the first time we visited this location. The hotel is dated but the overall size and openness makes it comfortable. The accommodations are fine but for the amount of money the room needed some care. The faucets are falling apart in the bathroom. The curtains were burned up and it looks like someone almost set the room on fire (see the picture). The room would not cool off and no matter what you did to the thermostat it never cooled off. The club was open for a short amount of time and we never got to take advantage of it. The morning breakfast was staffed with one gentleman and he visited our table just to bring the check. For $16 a person this was not acceptable.

Hotel's Favorite
What a nice change from typical dog friendly hotels/motels. The staff was pleasant. The hotel - inside and grounds was very clean. Rooms are quiet and spacious. We were next to a group that shared a room and it was still very quiet. Plenty of places to walk your dog around the property. Some cons: 1. not all dog rooms as assigned to the first floor - so that is a bit of an issue with early/late dog walks. 2. parking is NOT free. Overall a nice place. Would recommend if traveling in/around the DC area with a dog.

Impossible to breathe in there. The whole place reeks of chemical air freshener - in fact, you can see the machine that sprays air freshener every few minutes - it's a white post about 3 feet high near the four chairs at the entryway (near the mini market). It continuously sprays this chemical stuff into the air. The rooms that face the interior courtyard, you can't open the windows that face the courtyard, and the rooms smell like mildew from the bathroom, recirculated cigarette smoke, and more air freshener. The lamps in the room have extra-white LEDs that will melt your eyeballs. Be sure to book a room facing the exterior. I stayed in an exterior room previously and it was much better (I think the air conditioning was tolerably quiet in the exterior room, but I don't remember). There were like splattered blood stains on the comforter; they need to wash that thing more frequently, On the plus side, the rooms are big, water pressure was good, and interior room did have quiet air conditioning, but with the courtyard light coming in the top of the curtain and the toxic smell, I could not get out of there fast enough.

This is an okay hotel. Probably the best part about it is that it is located by a mall and a Starbucks, so it's easy to access a variety of food quickly. My biggest complaint is that there is a huge atrium and many rooms have fake balconies overlooking it. That means you get constant echoing noise from it that vaguely sounds like having a room next to a swimming pool.

So disappointing. Our expectations were too high. Issues: (1) staff unable to handle peak customer hours. Experienced multiple hang ups. Never was able to reach anyone able to address our question. (2) toilets were designed for use by children or midgets. If you enjoying plummeting down 4-6 inches to plant your rear on the lid this is the place for you. (3) ice machines mysteriously vacant from at least three of six floors. No warning from staff. (4) no microwave available. One way to ensure your use of their dining service. (5) instead of a walk-in shower to accommodate all shapes and sizes this hotel put in tubs for children/midgets. I pity the poor soul who is 6' plus using the accomodations but it would be an adventure I guess. Do yourself a favor and book a hotel elsewhere.

I stay at the Fair Oaks Marriott when I come to Fairfax to visit my parents and friends. The front desk staff is attentive and pleasant. The restaurant has a short menu, but really great food - well cooked. And whatever they do with their fries, is awesome. Hands down the best fries in Fairfax. Juana, behind the bar is great - no, she is awesome. She takes really great care of us. Did I mention the French fries?

First, our door lock wasn't working, so when we tried to get out of the room, we were locked in. The hotel did nothing other than send maintenance. No offer to change the room for us or refund. It's a safety issue, if their door locks do not work. Also, the trash cans in the hallway near the elevator smell awful and seeps into the entire hallway. Then we find out that we are charged a $250 smoking fee. I spoke to the front desk and said we didn't smoke and that I even noticed that there was a interior door in my room that connects to another room, and it could have been them. The front desk person said that the cleaning person smelled smoke. Well, I wonder if the cleaning person smelled the rotting egg odor from the trash can that was constant all day and night. I can't trust the hotel employees sense of smell. So, they refused to give me a refund of the smoke fee or acknowledge the serious issue about their door lock. Awful place to stay here!! I stay at Marriott frequently and this is the worst Marriott.

Hannah, I wanted to reach out personally and apologize for the experience that you had while staying at the Fairfax Marriott. We take cleanliness very seriously so it is very concerning to me that what you experienced was far from our goal of exceeding expectations. Our Director of Operations, who I have copied on this message, is working on finding out what happened to ensure that we take the proper action to make sure it doesn't happen again. Thank you for your feedback and again, I sincerely apologize. I hope that you would give us another chance in the future to prove to you that we are much better than what you experienced.

FILTHY AND UNSANITARY - ZERO PROTOCOLS FOR BREAKFAST I had intended to let this pass as I was under the impression that my late arrival/check-in would be accommodated with no penalty, this after a chat with the front desk via the app. To my surprise and chagrin, my credit card was charged a fee, and upon confirming with the front desk the night before my departure, I was told that “policy requires that I cancel before 24 hours of arrival.” Policy also requires that food be handled in a sanitary manner, extra precautions be taken to avoid the spread of Coronavirus, and tables be cleared and sanitized after use. I reminded the front desk staff of the poor conditions from this morning’s breakfast and asked what policy governed the hotel’s IRRESPONSIBLE and ABSOLUTELY UNSAFE CONDITIONS. I was appreciative when I was led to believe that the front desk would accommodate me when I initially messaged them asking for leniency re: my travel situation. I am very disappointed that was not the case. I asked the front desk to reverse the late arrival charge and overlook my late arrival due to circumstances out of my control in the same way that I gave the hotel staff grace for what were unacceptable eating conditions for hotel guests. Note: this is a self-serve breakfast buffet, and the hotel was hosting what seemed to be a girls soccer league - imagine the hectic environment and just how unsanitary it could all become. *food was not covered *milk was not iced or refrigerated *cutlery were being used to handle different breakfast foods *pieces off egg in the meat trays and vice versa *tables not bussed or wiped down; it got so bad that guests were bussing their own trays to the bar *this is a hotel that does NOT require their staff to wear masks, even their dining and food employees!!!!! FILTHY, FILTHY, FILTHY We all need to make “policy” exceptions as we work together to make hotel stays safe again, but when management of the hotel is unwilling to reverse a charge even after a guest arrives AND stays an extra night, you better believe that they better be on top of their game. Drive the longer commute and stay in DC where protocols are stricter. The hotel manager, Zach Kennedy, asked if I had proof of the front desk confirming they would waive the fee, but when I looked at the chat in the app, it was conveniently deleted. When I replied to the hotel manager via email that it was conveniently deleted, no response. He should be held accountable for the gross violations of Covid protocols!
