This hotel was one of the best I've experienced. The only problem I faced was that the refrigerator stopped working for a day. The next day it was back to normal without me report the problem. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
When I booked this hotel I requested a non smoking room. When I walked in the room stunk of cigarettes. It was a horrible musty smell. I eventually got uses to the smell but every time I went in or out I would have to wait to get used to it again. The room itself was nice to bad someone ruined it by smoking cigarettes. Also the ac did not constantly blow cold air and the room would get hot quickly. I had it on the lowest settings temp wise and the highest air speed wise. It was not enough. I could see myself coming back but only if I know 100% I'm getting a smoke free room.
Very satisfied overall. Dayshift front desk guy had no personality, but the guy who had checked us in was wonderful. The free breakfast was basic, but good: bottled juices, coffee, bagels, and pre-packaged breads and muffins. The pillows were flat, but it hadn't occured to me to complain about them, so I don't know if they could have given us better. Would definitely stay there again.
History buffs will appreciate Fairfax, once caught between Union and Confederate forces. Monuments to this Civil War heritage include the Fairfax Museum, the Confederate Cemetery, and the Blenheim estate, where stationed Union soldiers wrote poetry on the walls. Nearby, the National Parks Service preserves the Manassas National Battlefield, the site of the Civil War’s first major land battle.
