Travel Tip Tuesday: Courtyard Dunn Loring Fairfax

Should you find yourself needing a place in Vienna, Virginia, we recently stayed at this Marriott property.  The neighborhood seems to be undergoing some gentrifying from what we could tell during our brief visit.  There is adequate parking, both indoor and out.  Front desk staff is top notch.  The lobby/breakfast area is well decorated, comfortable and immaculately kept. 

The room itself was the same, quite attractive and clean, our only complaint being the bed was a little soft.  Linens were crisp and clean, there was a cooler we stashed our beverages and fruit in, bathroom was a comfortable size.  Very nice flat screen TV for watching a movie on the free cable channels.  There are also pay per view selections.  There is really no view to speak of. 

We did take a look at the hot tub/pool area but the smell of chlorine was too strong for me to consider taking a dip.

The hotel offers breakfast for a fee and has a well stocked convenience mart area.  There is lemon/lime water and coffee free in the lobby although I could not find the cups during the paid breakfast hours on Sunday. 

At just $80 for the night I felt this was a great deal and will stay there again if I'm in the area.
