We were in Fairfax visiting family and needed a larger space to accommodate me, my wife and our three young children. I chose the Residence Inn for location, complimentary hot breakfast and free parking. We checked in late, around 11pm, and the Front Desk associate was alert, friendly, and succeeded in getting us extra pillows. The hot breakfast was adequate...

We had a great time at this hotel. It's close to the air and space museum. It offers hot breakfast, nice pool with a life guard, the rooms were nice, good size for our family of 5. Staff was welcoming. It also has a basketball court. I was amazed with how nice this place was. It's about a half hour...

Great experience, when I showed up SUPER early the room I requested wasn’t ready yet Dahhh. So Karla at the front desk took down my cell number to call me when the room is ready. We went to Walmart to get some steaks by the time we were done she called us with the good news. Checked in to our...

My room was exceptionally clean and the placement of the hotel was super convenient. However, the best part about my stay was the front desk agent, Miss Karla. I arrived around 11:00 pm after a trying day, and I just wanted to go straight to my room. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by her smile and...

We stayed at the Residence Inn Fair Lakes Fairfax when we PCSed back from overseas. We were able to stay in a 2 bedroom suite and had our two yellow labs with us.

We stayed 4 days at the Residence Inn at Shopper Mall. Very close and easy on/off the highways for access to Metro stations and driving into town. Located about 20 miles from the DC limits and about 6 miles from the nearest Metro Station at the end of the orange line. Many restuarants and shops with in walking distance at...

This was our first time staying in a Residence Inn. Impressed with the spacious room and facilities. We found all the staff, without exception courteous, friendly and professional. Extremely helpful and it is an old cliche but 'service with a smile'. The location was ideal; walking distance to restaurants, shops and accessing the Metro into D.C. The self-service breakfast was...

We wanted to celebrate our daughters birthday and decided to stay in a central location close to "shopping" and good restaurants. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the rooms were spotless and roomy. Breakfast was great and getting to the hotel was easy and out of the way of mainstream traffic.

I stayed at this Residence Inn for 3 nights for my daughters college graduation. It was clean and well managed. I had a small problem with my reservation which the front desk was helpful with, although I must admit it took two different people to sort things out, but in the end it was all good. We really enjoyed the...
