I travel for work and usually book at a Marriot hotel. This was my first time staying at a Candlewood Suites hotel. At the time when I booked my room, the most appealing thing to me was the price.

Hi,

The metro is 4 miles away from the hotel and it takes about 20- 35 min to get to the D.C area.

Hi!

We are approximately 20-35 min away from the D.C. area. Our closest Metro would be the Vienna Metro Station and that is 4 miles away from the hotel. We do not provide shuttle service, but an Uber cost about $10 and a normal taxi service would be around $20. We do have a bus stop that can take you to the metro across the street from the hotel.

The cheapest way to travel daily to D.C. would be going on bus to the station and catching the train at the Vienna Metro Station. You could also drive to the station and park your car there and pay an all day parking fee of $5.

Please let us know if we can further assist you.

Sincerely,

The Candlewood Suites Fairfax Hotel Team.
