Pretty standard-issue Residence Inn. A bit dated, but amenable. Comp breakfast and evening "socials" were respectable. Everything right out of the Marriott mid-range play book, which generally means convenience and consistency. Location is very convenient, with close access to Capitol Beltway (495), Dulles Access Road (267), I-66, and Route 50. Equally convenient to DC, airports, or local tech & defense... More

We stayed for two months while I was in job training. From the moment we arrived, the management and staff took care of my wife and four young children.

The Residence Inn Fairfax Merrifield was one of the most disappointing Marriott experiences.

I selected this hotel because the main Marriott website said "The newly renovated Residence Inn Hotel in Falls Church" and I figured it would be a good experience at a recently renovated hotel.
