This property is connected to the Crystal City Shops and Metro. You can get to the Metro station without having to go outside. It is very convenient to get to DC, the Pentagon, Reagan National Airport, etc. The Pentagon City Mall is within walking distance.
The rooms are due for upgrading, esp. the kitchen and bathroom. The living and bedroom areas had newer furnishings. The carpet looked fairly new. Rooms receive once a week cleaning service. There is a workout facility, free newspapers, coffee and doughnuts and cookies in the lobby, and garaged parking. Like everywhere else in a city, street noise can be heard in the rooms, but we never heard tv or other noise from other rooms.
Oakwood requires a minimum 30-night stay, but was very flexible after that and allowed us to shorten our stay with one day's notice.
One of the best things about this Oakwood was the friendliness of the staff. They seemed eager to make the stay pleasant and were very easy to work with.
As of March 1, 2007, the Oakwood now takes pets. Our dog was the first pet there. We were charged $5/day to keep her there. There are breed restrictions, but no size restriction which is a great plus in an area where many facilities restrict the size. There is a large park a couple of blocks away with ample space to walk dogs.
