We booked two rooms for a family of four and for a party of two. The location is very convenient to Starbucks, CVS etc and major highways. The Hotel was clean and welcoming. The front desk staff was excellent. They greeted each guest warmly and always engaged us when passing by or looking for something. There is a free breakfast...

Tucked away behind some apartments I noticed the hotel is used by the local nova hospital. So patients and patient families stay there along with the throngs of government employees trying to save their per died by blasting through the complimentary breakfast and food at the happy hours. The hotel serves a great purpose but if you're looking to see...

I was looking for a place with easy commute to DC as that was the central part of our vacation. We booked the 2/2 and were very satisfied. The breakfast was hot and the area was very clean. It has many offerings for a free breakfast. I can't say enough about the friendly staff. They were friendly, helpful and also...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend, in town for a friend's wedding. We were very impressed. The hotel was nice, the staff was great, and it was centrally located. The rooms were nice and big, ours had a fireplace which made it home-y feeling. We would highly recommend and would stay again.

Was in Fairfax on business and stayed here for three nights. Rooms are big and comfortable. Looks like the place a renovated recently. Staff was efficient and friendly, even though they were busy all day with check-ins and check-outs on a steady basis. Wifi, TV, etc. all worked fine. Shower was hot and had lots of pressure. There is a...

I have stayed here quite a few times. This location is very convenient to business, shopping, and the metro for getting into the tourist attractions. Typically they are a little less expensive than the other Marriott properties in the area. Those are the reasons I always come back. This past weekend we had a family member in the nearby hospital....

Stayed over for couple of days, really convenient hotel with everything you need nearby, just walk over to the plaza for starbucks, restaurants (chinese, vietnamese, thai, pizza..) and cvs right there. Hotel rooms look newly renovated, clean and quiet, typical amenities for a residence inn, staff and front desk were nice. The only thing would be, we would have to...

Off to Falls Church for a concert. The Residence was our overnight destination. Nice property. Comfortable. Clean. Wifi works. Great breakfast and staff. Great experience though just for one night. Many amenities close by and on premise. Recommend.
