Knowing that the Metro ran right underneath the Oakwood Crystal City was a major plus. Could have used a few more signs to point to the direction of the apartment complex, but once we found it, it felt like home for a few days. What better way to visit a new city than by having a two bedroom, two bath... More

Man. Trying to find reasonably priced accommodations in the DC area is tough. My colleague and I were in town for a few conferences and needed to find an affordable place to stay for a week but it seems like DC hotels nickel and dime you for wifi, parking, and then there is the additional DC tax. Then I came... More

Oakwood in Crystal City (OCC) is in a great location. You can take the Metro without going outside. There are shops and places to eat in the Crystal City underground. Pentagon City Mall is within walking distance and the neighborhood is really great. Each apartment has a balcony with great views of some of the monuments. The area is very... More

We only stay in hotels when visiting DC but this time we stayed at the Oakwood Apartments in Crystal City and I highly recommend it. It is right next to the Marriott and there's a walkway through the Marriott to the Metro Underground so that you never have to go outside in bad weather and you can get anywhere in... More

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.

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 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....
