Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax
Clean and comfortable
Stayed here for two weekend nights for a family wedding. It was a great hotel for my kids- mini fridge to hold some drinks, small pool for them to splash in (with lifeguard), and a small workout room for adults. Clean throughout and on a side street set back from road so very quiet. Would have appreciated a slightly less inexpensive breakfast option (especially for kids) but there were restaurants down the road that offered that. About the only real problem we had with this hotel was booking the "wedding rate" and getting a room with 2 beds. No one seemed informed after calling national reservation line and directly to hotel. Finally had to contact a "sales manager" directly and even then she seemed inconvienenced by our request. Supposedly the desk manager and the sales manager have two different systems and can't see the same room availability. Strange- but persistence paid off in the end (although I have alot of long distance calls in the meantime).
This hotel was a pleasure to stay in. The staff was pleasant and very patient in giving me directions over the phone as I got lost driving all over Fairfax (not the easiest town to get around if you are new to it!)
The rooms were spacious and clean and looked very new. The bed was really nice - mattress wasn't too firm or too soft. Just right. The bathroom was clean. The sounds from the hallway and other rooms were muffled (not like some hotels where you can hear every sound through the walls) and there was not any noise coming from the street outside the hotel. Breakfast in the morning is a full breakfast for $10 or a continental for $8. It was stocked and good tasting food too. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Lovely hotel. We really liked this hotel. We stayed at this hotel with the intention of visiting downtown Washington. It was about a 20 minute drive and was a much cheaper alternative to the hotels in Washington. The bed was really comfortable, the pool was small but nice, the room was really clean and we felt very comfortable. It was a pleasant surprise to find a mini fridge and microwave in our room too.
The staff was not overly friendly but they were helpful. We would definately stay here again!
We have been in many hotels all across the US. We have never had a bed that reminded us of ours at home. We really appreciated the comfortable beds provided by this hotel. We also enjoyed the beauty of the room, great swimming pool and nice way the people treated us. All in all we would go to another Hilton anywhere if it is like this one.
I have to say this Inn was very beautiful and clean.. The room was spacious and the king size bed was huge and comfortable. The place got a little crowded on New Year's Eve but the staff handeled everything professionally. The Hilton Garden Inn is a great place and I will more than likely stay again.
Very Nice Hotel
Husband and I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Fairfax for three nights in September 2004. Very clean and very nice. Friendly staff. We loved the bed....so comfortable. Quiet hotel.... We would definately stay there again! A+ Hotel
I absolutely love the Hilton Garden Inn chain. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds extremely comfortable and hotel is very clean and up-to-date. The only negative is the swimmin pool and spa are only open from 5-10pm so early risers can't take advantage of this nice feature.
i stayed at this hotel in from the 10th january for four nights and it was amazing! a hotel is always four walls and a bed .the staff makes this hotel a joy to stay at. from my room attendant to the front desk.
everything about the staff says genuine. they are sincere and the make this hotel the best ever!!!
Best Hotel I've ever!!!
This hotel is the best I have ever used. I was there for a wedding in October of 2003, and the entire staff was wonderful. Domenic at the front desk checked me in, and he had one of the best attitudes I've ever seen. Everyone else was great as well, and Domenic was able to do a great job in checking me out the next morning, and gave me directions on how to get back to I-95 Northbound. I stay in a lot of hotels over the course of the year due to my job, and this one was the best yet.
Thanks Domenic & Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax!
Front Desk staff make it incredible
The beds are wonderfully comfortable but the front desk staff continuously exceed expectations and go to great lengths to make guests feel like welcomed guests. Cannot say enough about front desk staff.

... They both provided a lot of entertainment for the kids as they were playing games where they were pretending to fly into space, etc.
While I was in charge of setting up the insides of the tents and the hammock, Mike was in charge of cooking hamburgers and hot dogs for the kids. For sides we had carrots, 1 bag of chips (which went very quickly), pretzels, and goldfish crackers. Meanwhile, the kids were playing with the cool light up football ...

It was such a yummy lunch and we all agreed that perhaps the second bottle of fizz was a drink one to many. It did however mean we were in very high spirits as we walked the rest of the way along the High Line. That night we ate in at the flat and packed our bags for the weekend ahead in Washington.

... George Washington monument tall and imposing despite fences keeping us all away while work is done and the Lincoln Memorial the place to see. There's a sign near the statue suggesting people keep quiet from respect, but it was a very noisy place; reminding me of the similar futility in the Sistene chapel, though at least there people whisper rather than talking talking talking. I had been listening to podcasts on the American revolution as I came upon ...

We met Lisa at Barnes and Noble (large book store) and then found a restaurant for tea, Harry's Bar and Grill in the Harrington Hotel, one of the oldest family owned pubs in Washington. After Dinner we walked back to our hotel and made a Cuppa. Another big day. Left at 9am and got back at ...
