“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This hotel is a stand out! Staff are top notch - helpful, friendly and so nice! Hotel is beautiful - rooms are spacious, well laid out and comfortable. Breakfast is outstanding. Excellent selection and quality. I stayed for 5 days for business and was very happy with everything.

Room Tip: All rooms are suites. Each one is great!

I wasn't expecting this to be such a nice hotel. Our room was incredible - huge bed, comfortable L shaped couch, full kitchen, really nice bathroom - everything felt new and clean. I actually wished we were staying another night and not moving on.

We are American but live in South America - we have gotten very tired of substandard hotel rooms at exorbitant prices in Chile so this was a welcome opportunity to stay in a great hotel at a very reasonable price. In Chile for this price, we would hope to have hot water but wouldn't be shocked if we didn't! sigh.

We heartily recommend this hotel if you are in the area. it is a great bargain and makes for a very nice stay.

If I had to be in Fairfax for an extended period of time and had to live in a hotel, here is where I would stay. Very nice rooms, super comfy bed, spacious, nice large flat screen TV, separate large sectional couch area, desk, WiFi, huge kitchen with full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, dishwasher, microwave - everything you need. Super nice breakfast downstairs each morning and really friendly staff. We loved our stay here. We were in town for a Dec 1 wedding. Really enjoyed this hotel.

I have stayed in this hotel several times since it opened. What an incredible place!
The staff is outstanding. The rooms are spacious with very large baths. There is a fully equipped small kitchen if you need it. Breakfast is included and there's plenty to choose from!
Right off of Route 66 and very convenient for Northern VA and D.C.

I stayed at the Residence Inn in Fairfax City for a couple of one week stays and also for a month while waiting to move into my permanent residence. This is a beautiful new hotel super convenient to everything. While the hotel and rooms are wonderful what shines even more are the staff who consistently went above and beyond any hotel I've ever stayed at. Big thanks to Nashan, Monyinette, and for making my move to Virginia the best it could possibly be.

Oddly enough I prefer the studio rooms to the 1 bedrooms which are on the ends of the building. Also wifi is better the more towards the center of the building. Otherwise this is a great hotel, can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: A room towards the center of the building again is best either facing north or east.

What a surprise the Residence Inn was - as a frequent international business traveller it was so much better than I was expecting and much better than many expensive 5 star hotels I have stayed in lately. It is obvious that Marriott have really done their research and have got the formula for this hotel type really right. it is not very imposing on the outside however inside is well decorated. The apartment type layout is really comfortable and very well decorated. Bathrooms are spotless, spacious and generally the staff were pleasant and helpful. Dont expect fancy restaurants or bar service - this is just not that kind of place, however the breakfast was good. If you like to dine out, you may be disappointed if you want anything other than family type chain restaurants. You will also need a car to get here as it isnt near any easy transport routes. A cab from Dulles airport took me 45 minutes and cost about $60.00. But times can vary as my colleagues got stuck in traffic and reported the trip took much longer.

also appreciated the opening windows however it was a bitter disappointment to hear the loud drone of the airconditioning units on both sides of my room so ended up closing my windows just to get some peace and quiet.

Highly recommend this property because of the high standard of the rooms.

Room Tip: It is on a busy road so ask for rooms at rear if you prefer quieter rooms.
