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

Decent hotel right off Gallows Rd and Route 50 in Fairfax. Good location and quiet corner property. Decent breakfast buffet area overlooking garden. 90 % of rooms are located in separate buildings where you'd have to walk through their garden to access your room. Inconvenient in wet and cold weather. Friendly and professional service. Room was clean and nice kitchen... More

Pleasant stay enhanced by excellent choice of the two bedroom suite. It was roomy, in prime condition and clean. The kitchen worked well and the table comfortably sat five for dinner. The tv's had a terrible picture until they sent a man who took about 10 seconds to get it right on each set ( 1 in each bedroom and... More

We only stayed here one night which was fine. The best part of this hotel is the location to the little shopping center right next store ---Starbucks, Thai, Breakfast diner, pharmacy, bank etc. There is also a little walking path behind the hotel. Our room was fine, clean and updated. The floor below was being updated but we didn't hear... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom suite. My daughters and my mother accompanied myself for a three day vacation to DC. The rooms were extremely spacious and clean. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We had more than enough room. The breakfast that was provided was exceptionally satisfying, and the dining area was well attended and...
