Making a trip to Springfield Va shortly and I am interested in knowing which Marriott properties are worth staying at there.
Thanks in advance
Stay at the Residence Inn Keene Mill. The folks working there are very nice. Free on-sight parking, walking distance to a Trader Joes. Very convenient to the highway. The breakfast and evening social/mix are nice.
I have not stayed in the Springfield VA area before but have stayed at many other Marriott properties in Northern Va. Of the three listed for Springfield I would lean towards the Residence Inn. It ranked higher in reviews on both Marriott's website and Trip Advisor. The Residence Inn has free breakfast and evening socials on select nights. At Courtyard you would earn more points for your stay but breakfast is not included.
If you don't mind a small commute you may also consider the Falls Church Marriott in Fairview Park. It's located about 6 miles from Springfield and as a Gold Member you would have access to their Concierge Lounge. I have stayed at this hotel many times and have always been treated well.
Great suggestions, vaboywnder!
Currently at the RI thinking of moving to the CY for my next 2 stays ( 2 wks Sun-Thurs company wont pay for Fri and Sat).just to maximize the points
Be sure to report back which property you liked the best.
RI is better see my more verbose reply below!
After 4 wks or so I would have to agree
Ok so I'm sorry for the delay butt..........
So far I have been staying at the RI on backlick rd in Springfield. While I have a few quibbles, most of which everyone has, this is a fantastic hotel. Granted I have been there for close to a month but the staff is great, friendly and I really like it.
I had toyed with moving to the CY to maximize the pts but I did stay there once in June and I believe the point differance is to compensate for the amenities difference. The room was smaller, not even a mini fridge, and a few other things.
In summary, If pts are importent to you, or its just 1 or 2 nights, go CY. If comfort is important or wk or longer stays IMO it makes sense to use the RI.
Again if you are there be sure to go to Mike's American grill its just a 2 blk walk from the RI!
