I was underwhelmed with the actual room and building. Parking was underground and a little tricky The AC didn't work in the hallway we stayed on, but it was the hottest day of the year so far. I did feel very safe as a room key was required to get anywhere on property. The courtyard is very nice. The breakfast... More

This was a good 3- day stay at one of the few good hotels that would take our dog. Right in the heart of things at a key strategic location yet nicely landscaped to seem an oasis or escape. Rooms could be bigger for the price and bathrooms are small and cramped. Staff is professional but not effusive or overly... More

Our family gathered during the 4th of July weekend and we were lucky to find such an amazing hotel that fit all of our needs. It has spacious rooms, great buffet breakfast, perfect pool, basketball court, and shaded outdoor seating with umbrella tables. The front desk staff and housekeeping were outstanding, informative and helpful. We had some special time constraints... More

The location is fantastic. Mall access is right next door at a stone throw away. Underground parking is convenient and fantastic for families with luggages and hot summer days! Room seems to be renovated with modern design. Cute and convenient!

We stayed five days at the Residence Inn Fairfax Merrifield, in a two bedroom suite during our visit to Washington, DC with two of our Grandchildren. The suite was perfect for us and the grandchildren to have our own privacy with a bedroom and bath on each end and the living area and kitchen in the middle. This hotel has... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times with and without our kids. Very clean, we always get a two bedroom suite so the kids can have their space and we can have ours. Works out perfect. Would stay there again and again.

This hotel is centrally located to the metro system and all the major roads around NoVa. Plenty of places to walk for meals. Close to Tysons Corner malls also. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The free breakfast made it easy to get on the road quickly. A nice touch was the free Washington Post (and other papers) on the... More

For our DC sightseeing tour this spring/summer, my family and I selected this Residence Inn Marriott - the room we received was a recently-renovated, quite welcoming, 2-bedroom suite. It included the standard Marriott residence Inn charm - a bathroom for each suite, a full kitchen, new furniture/carpet and décor and even an electric fireplace (which we used due to all... More

We had a 2 bedroom suite that was like a small apartment. Each room was very private off of each side of the main living area. Each room had its own bath and TV. It was so clean we thought we might be the first to occupy it. The entire hotel is squeaky clean. Everyone from the desk to the... More
