“V. good hotel and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

I stayed in this hotel for around 30 days with my family. It was a good experience as I felt it was home. The staff and surrounding makes this hotel a good one, either for business, family or pleasure.
The price is excellent for what you are getting in terms of service and room space.

I was here for business and my meeting was right in the hotel so I didn't venture out at all. I had never stayed at a Residence Inn before and honestly had low expectations. This is a new property and it is very well designed. The sheets are not as nice as more upscale Marriott properties and while I had toiletries some of my colleagues did not. The public areas are particularly well done. The coffee is weak :( but the Internet is free :). It was a busy time due to graduations and the staff were definitely working at capacity but still very helpful.

Very clean. Everything seems new and in good working order. Free internet. Free breakfast and dinner. Large rooms. Convenient location. Full working kitchen in my room. Quiet, well insulated room. Everything you could ask for if you're a business traveler in the area or wish to be close to GMU campus.

I'm writing this review for my parents who just completed a stay at this property (I only visited, not slept there.) Their room had a full size kitchen, king bed and it looked like a queen or king sofa bed (full size couch.) The beds were comfortable and the room was very quiet. The free breakfasts were really good and they even offered a free dinner a couple of the nights they were there. The location is in the heart of Fairfax - not so great for sightseeing, but really good if you have family/business in Fairfax.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room right beside the elevator as the "dings" are loud.

This hotel is convenient, if you have business or pleasure in the nation's capital. It's near George Mason U., in case you have any dealings on campus. It's not too far from DC, whether you drive or take the Metro. The Metro is only minutes from the hotel, and if you use it at night or weekends, parking is free! Speaking of free parking, so is parking at the hotel! The hotel has a nice, classy, upscale feel to it. The decor is elegant and modern. The rooms are well maintained. Even though there's a full kitchen; a bathroom; a sleep area; and a living room area, it was nice, neat, and clean. They serve a hot, continental breakfast. They also have AMPLE dining space, just off from the lobby. If you want a private booth to watch tv while you eat, they have those too! It's nestled quite comfortably. You're far from the hustle and bustle of the city, but you're close enough to get their in a hurry!
