Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax
Travel Blogs from Fairfax
Fredericksburg, VA was supposed to be the next stop on our civil war leg of our journey. It turned into an interesting combination of miles of strip malls, prostitutes, grimy hotels and the best Hotwire Hilton in the history of hotwire and Conrad Hilton.
The battle of Fredericksburg saw almost 20,000 casualties and nearly 200,000 men …

... week. We then continued our walk past the Washington memorial and all the closed museums to Capitol Hill. After a long day of walking, we finished the evening off at Andrew & Liz Maxted’s, where we met their new arrival Will and had a great time catching up over a BBQ dinner and a few coldies.
Whilst D.C. was largely closed, we still had a wonderful time with great company and will be forever grateful for the hospitality that we received during our ...

... From there, my host dropped me in town and I went to the Holocaust Memorial Museum. It had academically interesting footage of the Nuremberg trials, information and commentary on current events in Africa and Asia, and a touching wall of children's painted tiles. I signed a note that I would tell anyone visiting Washington, DC to go there because I think people need to see it. The Hall of Remembrance is very simple and very quiet. There are no words for what ...

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.
