This is an attractive, very clean, updated Residence Inn, close to Rt 66. The lady at the front desk was gracious and professional. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. Our room (a corner room on ground level) was lovely, quiet, the bed and couch super comfy. (Love the Marriott beds!) There's an inner courtyard, ready to relax...

I stayed here on business last week (January 23-26, 2017) and it was wonderful! It was very, very clean, comfortable and quiet. It was my first stay at a Residence Inn property. Loved the one bedroom suite, living area with sectional couch, footstool and flat screen. Office desk and comfy chair made working from my room comfortable. Kitchenette was well...

Excellent clean room, very helpful and courteous staff. Been to the Fairfax area several times and this is the first hotel that I've found that I would stay at again. In an area close to many restaurants and shopping but this was not the reason I stayed there.

The hotel was very nice. The continental breakfast was great. The challenges were the lack of parking and the trek to get to our hotel room. If your room was in the back of the building, there were several doors to unlock and go through. We had to walk through the courtyard to get to the back building. The ladies...

Finding this place was very helpful because we couldn't move into our new house for 10 days and needed a 2-room suite for family and cats.

We had a short family getaway in Washington, D.C.. This is a great location outside of the city but still close to the freeway and not too far from the nearest local Metro line into Washington.
