I had stayed here a couple of times in recent years when it was a somewhat tired Holiday Inn Express. This was my first stay since the hotel was rebranded as a Fairfield and refurbished. I was very very impressed with the refurb job and the attention to details. Consider these small things... - The desk had 5 available outlets...

This was my first visit to the Herndon area. The hotel is in a good location close to many shops and places to eat. The one thing that stood out about my stay was the staff. Everyone we encountered from the check-in clerk (Lydia I believe) to the night clerk and breakfast woman were all equally welcoming and attentive.The friendliness...

Pros 1) Great Breakfast menu that is available till late during the weekend 2) Helpful and Friendly staff 3) Shuttle service available (pre inform for pickup from airport) 4) Room size is decent 5) Bang opposite the mall which gives it access to supermarket, eateries, spas etc Cons 1) NO GUEST LAUNDRY 2) Bad Wireless

This little hotel is a great value with a location convenient for shopping and restaurants. Lydia and Mary are two of the best Holiday Inn employees I've ever met. They really made our stay wonderful for myself and the kids. We will be coming back again the next time we are in the area. Another note the breakfast is actually...

Clean room and bathroom with decent space. With microwave and fridge. Old TV. Entrance is being renewed. Relatively good breakfast (fruits (apples), cereals, cinnamon rolls, omelet, yogurt, pancake (was empty at the moment but it should usually work), bacon, biscuits, coffee/tea, sausage). Many food options and drugstore at short walking distance (sidewalk available). Good deal for this location. Old style...

Place needs upgrade everywhere. Is closing end of Oct for total redo and will open under different brand. Bath fan sounded like airplane and TV didn't work at first. Not the friendliest staff either. Maybe after change and new brand.

Stayed here for 1 night on business. Hotel front desk was great at welcoming me as a Spire member...even got a hand shake, nice. Hotel was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good standard HIE hot/cold items. There is a Safeway grocery right next door which was nice to pickup some snacks etc

We stayed here to visit DC, 30min by car and you hit DC downtown. Breakfast was good, dinning room but small. They got flakes, pancakes, eggs and ham, different kind of yogurt. Rooms are good, clean and they smell good, AC is fine You have a 24h shop next to the hotel and various restaurants around. Definitely it worth so...

Nothing wrong with the hotel. The shuttle was never on time. Waited almost an hour and 2 phone calls to get the shuttle to come. Good location for flying out of Dulles. Restaurants, liquor store, supermarket less than 5 minute walk.

We stayed here for 2 days visiting family, so we did not benefit from the proximity to Dulles. That would be the only reason to stay here. The hotel had several annoyances, but they are somewhat "built-in" to the venue. 1) we had an "accessible" room, but it was barely large enough to allow a wheelchair to maneuver. 2) one...
