Oakwood properties tend to cater to long-term stays and provides furnished apartments. This location is EXCELLENT. It is connected via the Marriott hotel next door and several tunnels to the Crystal City metro, placing you right on the blue and yellow Metro lines. It's nice not to even have to leave a building when it's raining or snowing to reach the Metro. There are OODLES of services in the area -- you're a comfortable 3 block walk from the Pentagon City mall (or you may take the blue line one stop) and one stop on the Metro from the Regan airport. Grocery services like Pea Pod will deliver right to your apartment and the amazing staff at the building are willing to meet them on your behalf if you need to be in a meeting or can't wait to get to see the sites.
The apartments are clean, spacious and well furnished. All of them seem to have large windows with plenty of light and come with every amenity you might want -- cable TV, complimentary high-speed internet, comfortable beds, full kitchens, all the linens and utensils you might need. Units have washers and dryers, saving you from the torture of trying to do laundry at a non-existent laundromat in Washington, DC. As a super-duper bonus in the Washington, DC region, parking is INCLUDED and is underground. This is a huge perk and not something to be taken lightly in a city where parking is a premium.
The staff can't be beat -- anything you need, they help you out. They receive packages, deliveries and help you with everything. They go out of their way to make it a nice community, providing opportunities to interact with your neighbors if you like. They have dinners, movies nights, etc. They also distribute a flier that gives you ideas of things happening in the immediate neighborhood, which is a very nice touch.
I'm extremely pleased with this property. I travel a LOT for work and have often found myself at a hotel for weeks on end. It is such a nice change to have the luxury of an apartment with the service of a great hotel.
