in room swimming wasn't fun

We heard a strange noise in the middle of the night and immediately noticed water shooting out of the toilet and all over the floor. Called operator who called housekeeping. By the time they got to us, the water soaked the carpet all the way into the room and out to the hallway, the bedding got wet as did our clothes and my charger is now ruined. No one from the front desk came to check on us and we weren't offered a new room until I walked bare foot to the desk to ask if there was a plunger so I could try to fix it myself. I had to wake my small children up after one in the morning to relocate room. This is not what I was expecting from this hotel. So disappointed.

The Staff made us feel welcome

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We were impressed with the look of the hotel as we walked in front door and this feeling continued through-out the entire stay. The staff was outstanding. We brought our granddaughter(who is 4) to the hotel to swim and especially Mike (who was working the front desk) was so nice to her. She asked if we would take her back when we come back for Christmas to visit. The hotel was lovely and we will stay there again.

Great location, great hotel experience

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. Our arrival coincided with a bus filled with teenaged girls on a trip. As we needed a good night's sleep, I asked Tim, the manager, to place us in a room that was far away from the teenagers. He obliged us and we had a great night's sleep. The bed's comfort is adjustable on both sides and the room was clean and appropriate. The breakfast was not included, but the waitstaff was super super efficient and friendly. I would stay here again.

Great Value and Exceptional Staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
When we arrived we were greeted by a genuinely friendly staff at the front desk. They answered all of our questions and address any concerns we had. The room was clean and the bed was SO INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE!!!! I would return to this location without hesitation.

A beautiful hotel, with nice amenities, and extremely helpful staff.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel was extremely nice. Close enough to the city without actually being in the city. Staff was very helpful, and even recommended a wonderful restaurant to us for breakfast (which turned out to be a fun,funky place!). The rooms were nice, and clean. And the beds were oh so comfortable! Wonderful stay!

A truly superior facility

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
This is a top of the line place -- exceptionally well appointed and super friendly staff (well, they did keep calling me by the wrong name, but they tried). Food was excellent. Pricier than others but it creates a very nice overall experience.

Nice Stay

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and very nicely decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on and the down pillows and comforter were heavenly. The staff were friendly and efficient. I will stay at this hotel every time I visit Fairfax.
