So we have been living here for more than month now and will be here for another 3 weeks. As far as being a 'Home away from home', I have been really happy. It's not the newest property but the apartments are well appointed and have everything you need for a short or long term stay. On arrival, check in... More

We stayed here in March for our DC trip. It was a perfect place for us. It is directly connected to the Crystal City Marriott & Crystal City underground shops. The Metro is easily accessible without ever going outside. It is a very secure location and the staff were very friendly. It was perfect for someone like me who had... More

Oakwood is like a long term hotel/apartment. We stayed in a two bedroom room with a full kitchen and a huge living area. It was great because of all the space we had, not your typical hotel room. The kitchen and bathrooms were a little outdated but for a week stay, it was worth it because of the space and... More

Our visit was over the long Memorial Day weekend (check in Sunday, check out Wednesday). This location is just across the bridge from Washington DC and is an easy subway ride into most of the tourist attractions. Free indoor parking is provided by the hotel which is unheard of in the Washington DC area! (Most hotels in the area charge... More

It is not a traditional hotel, but one more like a apartment. The unit my family and I stayed has two bedrooms, a sitting room, a dining room, and kitchen! All rooms are spacious, unlike most hotel rooms that are tight on space. The beds and sofa are all soft and confortable. It is a perfect place for us. You... More

I found the Oakwood Crystal City when I was looking on Google Maps for hotels in the area and I am SO happy I did! I brought my two boys (20 and 18) for a final spring break before the youngest heads to college. The 2 bedroom apartment was exactly what we needed!! It was fully furnished and had all... More

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
