My family and I stayed at the Comfort Inn in May and I pretty much saw everything the hotel had to offer.
Here are the good parts: Me and my boyfriend came to the Comfort Inn after a 14 hour drive straight from Florida and even though thier check in time is at 3:00pm they let us check in 2 hours earlier so we could get some sleep. Also the shuttle that they provided to the Metro (which is the easiest way to get to D.C.) was really nice we arranged to be picked up at 9 am and we spent quite a long time sightseeing and when we got back to the metro station around 5:30 and were afraid that we would have to take a taxi but they still sent the shuttle out for us.
Here are the not so good parts: we had booked a king bed room online and they instead gave us a room with 2 doubles, thankfully they had a room open with a king which just happened to be an executive suite. This room was huge EXCEPT for the bathroom it was very tiny compared to the rest of the room but still sufficant. The room had a kitchen but the thing that confused me was that there was no microwave to heat the food you might put in the refridgerator. Also the floor around the room is very uneven and there were hardly any outlets.
My aunt and uncle's room was hilarious. They had the type of king room we were supposed to get. This room comes with a jacuzzi but it's located out side of the bathroom in the living area and you have to climb through a window in the bathroom to get to it. The shower looks like a combination between a tomb and time capsule with room for only half a person. And the toilet is located in what looks like a faux linen closet.
As for the rest of the hotel the pool is located inside and is heated but I wouldn't recommend staying in it long the fumes from the cholorine could knock out a herd of cattle. After our long drive both my boyfriend and father wanted a drink so we went down to what was called the bar. you have to walk to the other side of the hotel down a flight of steps and pass the very rude wait staff who look at you funny if your not Asian and the beer selection is laughable especially when the bar is located a a dark sectioned off corner of the resturant.
The area of Fairfax is very nice and D.C. is only minuets away by Metro and most of the sightseeing tours are located at Union Station. Both the tourmobile and D.C. ducks are wonderful but I would recommend using 2 days to tour becuase even though we spent 10 hours in the city we still didn't see everything.
