Convenient to Metro

Posted Dec 10, 2017
My husband and I stayed for a week in December 2017. The Oakwood was a nice and spacious apartment with a fully equipped kitchen. We stayed on the 17th floor with a view of the Washington Monument and a nice balcony. The Metro, restaurants, shops, and a drug store are very close and accessed via the adjacent Marriott without having to go outside! Costco and Whole Foods are an easy walking distance (1 to 2 blocks). We will definitely stay there again.

Nice hotel close to the airport and the city.

Posted Nov 28, 2017
Pros: Great location.
The hotel apartment is located very close to the airport and not far from the city. We had a two bedroom apartment with a cot. The kitchen was fully furnished and restaurants and stores were very close also. Highly recommend for a family getaway.

Great location

Posted Oct 24, 2017
Our unit was as bare as possible with cheap particleboard furniture, but provided an affordable option for our stay. The bed in the master suite was horribly uncomfortable with possibly a broken boxspring. The location was phenomenal, which is the only reason we'd consider a repeat stay. It is directly above the Metro trains and an underground shopping mall which allowed us to travel quickly and buy necessities on a whim.

Thank your for choosing Oakwood and for providing your feedback. Please also know that we also absolutely agree with you on the fact that our furniture package needs a face lift. We have been looking into purchase and rental options for our property. Hopefully more upgrades are coming soon. We hope to see you again in the future.

Everything we could have asked for

Posted Oct 23, 2017
Pros: Close to everything, convenient amenities, great staff
Cons: Some of the wall art in the apartment was not centered on the walls and that seemed silly. (I have OCD and notice those things)
Location: Underground mall is connected, plenty within walking distance to eat and do. It is a nice area of town.
This apart-hotel was so convenient for us. It has underground metro access, it's secure, and the room had everything we could possibly need. We were travelling with an infant and Oakwood made sure that we had a high-chair and crib in there for us upon our arrival.

Thank you for choosing Oakwood and for providing such an awesome feedback. :) I am sorry to hear about the art not being centered. We will work a little harder to pay more attention to detail. Fun fact about art: all the photos was taken by our original owner Mr. Ruby, who is also well known photographer. Thank you for providing the feedback.

Convenient, comfortable

Posted Oct 16, 2017
Pros: Metro access, modern look, clean
Cons: We wish the shower had a little more water pressure, but otherwise, no complaints!
Location: We had easy accessibility via the Metro to all things DC - Arlington Cemetery, National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, Restuarants
Has underground access to the Metro through Crystal City shopping, which was very convenient. Although you could hear other doors opening/closing in the hall, the room itself was overall very quiet, comfortable, and clean.

Best thing about this place is the location—it’s connected to the Marriot Gateway, which has underground access to the Crystal City Shops and Metro. With the Metro, you are within 20-30 mins of DCA, Pentagon, and downtown DC. I found it incredibly easy to find restaurants, attractions, and other conviences like coffee shops and drug stores, all within walking distance. The “hotel” itself was ok. I should clarify that it’s not really a hotel, but more like an apartment building. I chose it because a) it was cheaper than nearby hotels and b) I got a lot more space for the money. But in some ways I wish I had sprung for an actual hotel...I didn’t really need the extra space, and the building is definitely older than some of the more modern hotels. Granted, they seem to have invested money in updating the decor, etc., but its age is apparent in the ceilings, windows, etc. My particular unit was on the ground floor facing the main entrance area, which was quite visible to me given that the blinds were falling apart. Again, you get what you pay for. Overall, decent place, great location, good value. Staff were helpful.

Nice Room but exterior lighting too bright!

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Cons: Needs better shades in bedroom for unit room 205.
Very nice room. Very clean. Comfortable bed. BUT, the exterior lights from the hotel main entry shone into the bedroom. It was so bright that would wake up at night and honestly not know if it was night or day. Very minimal shades were completely inadequate. Too bad. Otherwise a nice convenient place.
