Oakwood Falls Church is not a hotel as such, rather it is short-term corporate housing with a minimum three-day stay. Although it mostly caters to government employees on per diem, it also houses corporate customers and even some individual customers. Oakwood is extremely popular with families and accepts pets as well.
Others have complained about the laundry room, but as some reviewers have noted, many rooms have a stacked washer and dryer included. There are limited on-site facilities such as a small dry cleaners and grocery store, but there are several large shopping centers within a 20 minute walking distance, including a Safeway grocery store, a CVS drug store, as well as over 20 restaurants. The Oakwood complex is located next to Eden Center, the largest Vietnamese shopping complex in Virginia but many non-Vietnamese restaurants are available at other shopping centers nearby. The outdoor pool is heated and is open well past Labor Day. There is a small playground for tots. The tennis court and barbeque grills adjacent to the pool are very popular.
My room was spacious and clean with an enormous walk-in closet and ample storage space. The kitchenette was stocked with basic kitchenware, small detergent and cleaning supplies, ironing equipment, vacuum cleaner and some bottled water in the fridge. Wi Fi and ethernet are included in the basic rate as well as digital tv with over 100 channels. Each room has a walk-out balcony. Maid service is typically once per week.
The front desk is not available 24/7.
The trash chute area fills up past capacity very quickly each morning, necessitating a lengthy hike to the dumpters.
If you are not familiar with the Seven Corners area, the neighborhood can be difficult to navigate without a GPS and rush hour traffic patterns can be scary for out-of-towners.
