“Great option if you don't want to stay in a hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We found this by accident. There is a 24-hour concierge desk that will help out but they are not employees of Crystal Quarters. There are, I believe, 3 different "associations" in the building. Crystal Quarters is one. There is no maid service during your stay but we needed extra towels and, after a few extra phone calls, they brought some up for us. The apartment was clean, furnished and stocked with a coffeepot, can opener, microwave, toaster, plates, silverware, cups, coffee filters (and sugar), tea bags and diswashing tablets. We were in a 1 bedroom apartment which was tight with 4 people. The couch does not pull out and they provided us with a cot so the kids alternated between the couch and the cot each night. The rooftop terrace is pretty cool and the kids loved the pool. They have a parking garage and there's a shopping plaza just down the road (take Potomac Ave and come in to the plaza the back way across from the movie theater) with a Shopper's grocery store, Don Pablo's mexican restaurant and IHOP among others. The Crystal City metro is just a short walk from the hotel in the other direction. One could even walk there through the Crystal City Shops, which is underground.

The night I got in, I could connect to the wireless router, but no internet despite putting in the correct password and my laptop indicating it was connected to the router. Brought my hotspot device, so no biggie.

Got up the next morning, most of the lights were out in the bathroom. Waited nearly 30 minutes for hot water to appear but no hot water appeared. Had to take a cold shower and then got to work.

Complained about no hot water to the management. They indicated that since within a few hours after I called, they resolved the issue, that there was essentially no harm done and that they would also throw in a $25 Starbucks gift card. Problem is, I don't drink Starbucks and don't think that a $25 gift card is reasonable compensation for having a cold shower.

When I mentioned the lights, management was basicallly indicating that I should try to make due with just one working light in the bathroom. ?????

Bypass this 'non-sense' and stay in a traditional hotel even if its a lower grade hotel room. Not worth the lack of sensitivity exhibited by the people working here. Highly request this organization looks into obtaining new management.

Room Tip: No house-cleaning, free parking, w/d in unit, nice view, terrible management, terrible customer serv...

Stayed in the Crystal Quarters Corporate center during the weekend. Other than no maid service during the days we were there it was better than a regular 5 star hotel. We didn't need our bed made or our towels changed. Washer and dryer is in the room if needed. You get a full kitchen, full living room and a modest bathroom. Quiet very near Metro station and Crystal City shops. Very convenient to get anywhere. Full exercise area and pool table room. Full spa available also but we didn't use it. Very reasonable rates when shopped on Hotels.com. $95/night.
