The service at this hotel was great. Rodney from Crystal City (working in Fairfax for the day) had steller customer service skills. He was helpful, happy and willing to go the extra step for his clients. Also, Jody was extremely helpful with dinner and delivery options in the area. The rooms were fabulous. Our room felt like a mini aprtment....

This hotel is conveniently located a couple miles from the EagleBank Arena, nearby campus, and many restaurants. The hotel staff is efficient and friendly.

The room is comfortable and...

Spent four nights here for a conference. My room (one of the 1 bedroom suites) was clean and comfortable. Breakfasts don't change day to day, but they are good. Access to GMU is easy. I'd highly recommend the Indian restaurant just across the street.

After staying at the Residence Inn in Charlottesville Virginia are standards are rather High. I felt that this hotel should be a little bit nicer for being so new.
