Saturday rate at participating hotels set by outdoor temperature reading!


Fairfax County, VA - The colder, the better. That is what guests staying in participating Fairfax County hotels will be saying during weekends from November 29 to December 27 when their Saturday night rate will be "frozen" to match the Fahrenheit outdoor temperature recorded at Dulles International Airport at 12 noon on the Saturday of their stay.

A minimum two night stay is required for this promotional offer, and regular hotel rates will apply to any nights beyond the Saturday night stay. Hotel reservations must also be booked a minimum of 72 hours in advance. The official Saturday Dulles temperature will be reported through the WeatherBug Web Site at
