We had a fantastic time. Oakwood was wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is not a hotel it is corporate apartments so you are not going to find things like breakfast etc. However it was nice to have the local experience and have an apartment. You get a full kitchen with everything you need. It's all there right... More

I stopped in a furnished apartment here for a six month business trip. The location is excellent good access to the road network, Metro and Regan International Airport; there are several good restaurants in the immediate vicinity and shops/supermarkets should you choose to self cater. The staff are excellent, extremely professional and genuinely helpful. I have recommended this to my... More

Can't beat the location! Oakwood is in walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and public transportation, and you don't even need to go outside to get to many of them! It's extremely easy to get to the Metro without leaving the building. The rooms are good size. I was surprised that the rooms actually have a small washer and dryer. Free... More

I really don't like being in transition but we needed to stay someplace for two weeks while we looked for permanent lodging. Oakwood provided a very spacious apartment, super clean with everything we needed. Very comfortable bed and 1.5 bathrooms. The exterior of the building is old and the kitchens are a bit outdated but it was a very good... More

The building is showing its age. It's dark, with some parts of the wallpaper and carpeting falling off. But the suites are super clean, and tip top shape despite the age. Weekly housecleaning, they do an excellent job. I have a 2 bedroom unit which is about 1,000 sq ft, and kept cleaner than any apartment I've ever had. Housecleaning... More

The location cannot be beat. Shopping, restaurants,metro all underground. The room was perfect for our needs. The kitchen and bathrooms do need updating. We stayed on the 13th floor and had a wonderful view, but the street noise wakes you up quite early no matter which side you stay. We especially liked having the washer and dryer in the room....

Oh MY! All those years staying at the Marriott and right next door was the Oakwood all this time. Last year my Marriott reservation was messed up (my fault) so I needed a week during a conference.

Oakwood properties tend to cater to long-term stays and provides furnished apartments. This location is EXCELLENT. It is connected via the Marriott hotel next door and several tunnels to the Crystal City metro, placing you right on the blue and yellow Metro lines. It's nice not to even have to leave a building when it's raining or snowing to reach... More

The building was built in the 80's and apparently nothing else was done to keep it up. The carpet has stains that are probably 20 years old and all the cabinets and doors need some oiling. All the kitchen appliances and utensils are of very poor quality, including the knives that really don't cut anything! The beds are old and... More

For an extended stay in the DC area, the Oakwood at Crystal City can't be beat. The location is excellent. The Crystal City Metro station can be accessed underground without even going outside the building. Additionally, there is plenty of secure parking on site, and it's easy to get in and out of the garage with a car. As indicated... More
