Typical of Residence Inns, we had a small studio apartment for a room. King bed, sitting area and small kitchen. All was clean and need. The only problem we encountered was that air conditioning would not run while you were away, and needed room key in a slot to col the eperature down - not good when it has beeen...

Stayed here on a visit to George Mason. Had special request due to allergies. John at the front desk was great. When I called he answered my questions and took notes before sending me to the reservation area.

We have had several short stays here and just finished an eight day stay while on vacation in the National Capital Region. The hotel is exceptionally well maintained. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The generous, free breakfast is a major plus. Highly recommended!

We booked two rooms at this hotel from Saturday to Thurs. The hotel is very clean and contemporary. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.

Awesome suites – huge kitchen, nice sitting area and TV, comfortable bed, and great bathroom. The breakfast area was huge and the food was very good.

I stayed here for business for one night and wished I could have stayed longer. The hotel is fairly new and nicely furnished. The free breakfast was good and the staff was extremely friendly. My only complaint would be that the Internet was a little slow.

The Residence Inn at Fairfax City was the perfect place for our two week stay in northern Virginia. The king's suite was more than enough space for the two of us, and we loved the Inn the Mix community events! Our favorites were the grilled chicken sandwich night, tacos night, and Brie night! We will definitely be staying here again...

I really enjoyed the stay. Everything is great. Only the cleaning lady can be nasty. The location is also good if you have a car. It is close to Washington DC and also other places in MD. One problem is that it can get very hot in Fairfax in August.
