I liked the breakfast buffet and the free internet.
There were a number of large groups including an all night party that was not handled.
This Best Western was right on the bus way- 10 minutes to the Metro station, and 30 minutes from the Metro station to the Smithsonian stop in DC. This was extremely convienent, being able to leave your car @ the hotel.The staff was very helpful with information, even though they probably answer the same questions all of the time. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, and it was great that it was included as part of the stay. We would definitely stay here again!
NIce Hotel, large comfortable rooms, breakfast bar was great.
Sign on Hotel is back away from main road and drove by it because I the sign is not visiable on the sb part of the road. The staff didn't know or have metro bus schedules on order get from Hotel to Metro station, as the Metro Station parking lot was full and could not park.
Comfortable bed, great breakfast. Beautiful, large pool (which we were unfortunately not able to use).
The only criticism is the somewhat noisy air handling system.
Our room was well cleaned every day. The breakfast was very affordable and pleasant.
I thought it was a shame that the pool did not open until 10am.
Quality and cleanliness of our room. Excellant breakfast included in room price. Helpful and friendly staff that provided great assistance in providing information regarding traveling in the metro dc area.
The staff were excelent, especially the lady in the breakfast room, very helpful and friendly. The breakfast menu was excelent
I don´t like using fan heating at night, as there were no extra blanket it was a bit cold
The location was great. There is one young man that runs the front desk that is amazing (GREAT JOB)!!!!
The restaurant isn't open enough. Not knowing my way around was a problem. Just a breakfast and short dinner would have been nice.
close proximity to friends visiting
Low WiFi signal strength, loud refrigerator.
The room is very clean. The location is conveninet both for going to dc and also for going to George Mason University.
We stayed at the hotel at the beginning of our holiday as easy access to Washington. Had a pool and very near to great shopping. On the first night we were able to use a voucher from the holiday coupon book obtained from the visitor's centre. We wanted to stay our last night again in Fairfax I looked at a coupon site which I thought was showing me rates in dollars so unfortunately paid well over the odds to add insult to injury the pool was closed.
Pool closed on the only good day we had for our hoilday due to hurricane Issac. Not the hotels fault. Do feel that this closure could have been pointed out on booking
Besides the central location (for our purposes), that also included the easy access to Routes us 50, us 29, and I-66. The breakfast buffet was a definite plus! Not only free (as part of the room rate package), but also being right on the premises meant we didn't have to go out in that infamous Washington area morning commuter traffic!! I'd like to add that we both thought Best Western set out an extensive variety of items for one's selection. I did miss not seeing any fruit - only fruit juices were available - and a small bowl of cut-up fruit (even the canned type) always looks so appetizing. The room fridge was a definite plus and for us - that often decides where we will book a room.
Room No. 126 was as far back as one could walk using either sidewalk around the swimming pool. No luggage trolley was available so it was a tiring chore to carry everything to and from that room. One of the electronic key cards did not work - found that out when one of us returned to the room alone and then had to wait a long time for the other to return with the one that worked!! Once again it would have been a long walk to the front desk and back again with a staff member to let me into the room!! The a/c was the pits - cooled the air but didn't remove much, if any, moisture. Sheets felt clammy; clothing felt damp, and worst of all, my hair frizzed up as though I were outside in a light drizzling rain!! A noisy a/c and a toilet that often flushed itself didn't lead to a restful night's sleep!!
It was clean and only a short trip to the Washington Metro. Given the typical prices in the area, this was an excellent value.
I was staying in the hotel on 29th june 2012 which was a blackout day in the history of fairfax VA. I had 4 rooms booked 2 started from 29th and rest from 30th June. I really appreciate that they compasated me with free stay for the 29th as well as they game me discount for not having wifi as well as Cable TV. I am greatful that they understood my situation and gave me the discount and comforted me and my guest as it was my engagement and wedding ceremony. Thanks to best western for all the help and discounts.
I do not remember the name of the girl at the reception but she was kinda rude on 29th and 30th and 2nd July rest of the staff was cooperative and helpful.
