I made a mistake on the dates of our booking. Long story short, the residence inn did everything they could to help us out. Carla was so special. Can't thank them all enough. Definitely recommend The Residence Inn Fair Lakes!

Rooms are kept clean and have a little kitchenette containing a full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker and stove/oven combo. There is also a coin operated laundry room on the third floor....

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. Clarence was also helpful to help lift our suitcases and we were thankful because I had torn a ligament in my back. Main negatives were the hotel allowed nasty smokers in the garden area...

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. The Hotel is near a suburban shopping mall and decent restaurant chain. This is one of my favorite places to just outside the busy...

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...
