I am writing this on behalf of Irine Strauss and her staff at the Fairfax Holiday Inn Express who could not have been any more accommodating or welcoming to the people who did some training for FCPS the last week of June (June 25-June 28, 2014). They gave us a great price, worked with us to make sure that it was easy for out of town participants to register, took great care of our consultants and Irine was very responsive and genuinely wonderful!
From the get go, Irine answered her phone, called me back and found out good information for me to base my whole institute on! We had 650 people come from all over the world to take classes offered by the College Board (Advanced Placement classes) and they were able to implement a system to ensure that FCPS paid for the right people, helped the out of towners with good restaurants and remediated any issues in any of the rooms right away.
Irine’s staff, in particular, Phillip, was so funny and clearly knew how to handle himself under pressure! That humor went a long way closer and closer to the event.
Lastly, if the feedback from the consultants and the participants weren’t that they wanted a hotel with a restaurant and a pool-I would already be on the books for next year. In a very classy fashion, when I explained this to Irine and asked for her to find a full service hotel in the IHG brand, she jumped at the opportunity.
I am very grateful to have gotten to use the Holiday Inn Express Fairfax and for the staff members who made the consultants and the participants feel so welcome and take care of. I appreciate their professional creativity and cheerful personalities as every interaction was totally easy!
Thank you for this opportunity! I appreciate the wonderful job that the hotel staff did and the extra attention that Irine paid me so that I could do this really big part of my new job!
