Incredible service, beautiful venue
Having our wedding at this location was the best choice we could have made. Leandra James is incredible and our big day would not have been the same without her. She was very responsive to any request or question I had. She and her whole team, especially Katherine and Jason, were so helpful in planning everything from start to finish. They helped with every single detail of the day including the rehearsal, reception set up and execution and making sure everything ran smoothly and on time. The food at the reception was phenomenal. The garden patio was beautiful. I seriously can not thank these guys enough.

Good location, excellent catering, perfect service, low price
The Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax is located close to Dulles Airport, which is convenient for out of town guests. It has a beautiful courtyard to perform outdoor ceremonies, and provides a second ballroom in case of inclement weather. It has a large main ballroom capable of holding I believe 180 guests for the reception.
Crucially for us the staff maintain a closet full of wedding decorations, so you won't have to go find your own fancy chairs and chargers and other stuff nobody will even remember anyway. We asked them to handle all the decor as they saw fit; we only provided two small floral arrangements. The hotel staff did a spectacular job for both the ceremony and the reception.
The catering is top-notch. Having attended my share of weddings in the past, I would have been happy with anything at least Applebees quality. But I'm happy to report that the food genuinely was good. We had strip steak, salmon, and tortellini, and all three were exquisite. My brother got married two years ago; he and his wife paid considerably more for worse food.
When we signed the contract, the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax promised us excellent service at a lower cost compared to other hotels in the area. It delivered. We couldn't be more pleased.

Leandra was great! She was super excited to help us with our wedding, and so helpful! She helped me make decisions about things I didn't even know went into a wedding! That day the staff made sure everything was perfect. I busted the hook on my dress and they helped me fix my dress just minutes before I was supposed to walk! Leandra and her team are magical!
