I had an odd experience the last time I was here. This experience was much better. You are at a great location next to shopping and dining. The hotel staff did a great job. I recommend the concierge lounge. Food varies from memorable to just okay, but it is a good experience. The restaurant is also a good time and place. If you are driving into Washington DC, expect stop and go traffic all the way in during rush hour.

Terrible sound proofing
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I usually stay at another Northern Virginia Marriott but Fair Oaks was closer to my business event so I thought I’d give it a try. Never again. This hotel has zero sound proofing. I could hear my neighbor use the toilet, conduct a business call and every television program he watched. You literally hear people using the bathroom as you walk down the hallways. The staff was friendly but not especially responsive. I tried using the app chat to request a bathrobe and was assured it would be in my room. It wasn’t. I asked for one in check in and didn’t have one several hours later. I hated the shower. It took forever to warm up and the door didn’t close. They remedied that. Food at the concierge lounge was pretty good but I was disappointed by Chardonnay as the white wine choice. My other Marriott does better. All the staff was friendly. I enjoyed talking with the bartenders. They were out of the healthy dish I ordered. 😳 I’ll be staying at my other hotel though. I don’t need to know so much about my neighbor.

Top notch staff!

Fairfax #Marriott at Fair Oaks General Manager Harsh Bagla went above and beyond to assist with a trip challenge - mission accomplished! The concierge lounge had a great staff, Maria is superb.
I am a frequent Marriott guest and my experience with this hotel was outstanding, I will be back.

Great concierge lounge

Better than average Marriott concierge lounge, and really great staff. I didn't catch her last name, but Maria who supports the lounge was phenomenal. Hotel also seems to be recently renovated and is conveniently located to lots of good food and shopping.

Nice but room to improve
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I stayed full weekday of 1/21 in the hotel. It’s about 30 mins away from the IAD airport and Uber is easy to get. The hotel is close to a mall, and only 3-5 mins walk to get the mall entrance. The room is clean, quiet, and tidy. The check in receptionist are friendly and quick.

The bar restaurant in the hotel is nice and convenience. I had dinner there one night with my colleagues, and service is great! Both the crab corn soup and broccoli soup taste delicious! Highly recommended the soup.

However, there are a few things they can do better. I stayed Room 533 during the whole stay, and it’s painful every time to get a shower. The water temperature is either too cold or too hot, and there is no way to adjust to the right temperature for a shower. When you turn the switch to a point, the water will get colder and colder or get hotter and hotter in a few seconds to a min. I had to keep turning the switch left and right until shower is done. When you experience this after a whole day meetings, it’s really frustrated. One of my colleagues experienced such situation as well during her last visit as well, but she doesn’t have this issue during this time. So maybe this just happened to certain rooms. I would suggest fix the issue before another guest stays in this room.

Besides, the service at breakfast place needs to be improved. It’s like a buffet style breakfast and a waitress. You only deserve tips when you actually serve people. I still left tips but I really wanted to let her know she deserves more if she serves more. Especially compared to the service at the bar restaurant in the hotel, there is barely a service at breakfast. Anyway, the stay is overall fine, but a few disappointed experience.
