The apartment was ok for my needs. Visited DC for professional training so I was gone all day and used the apartment in the evening and overnight. When I checked in it took nearly two hours to get the keys. The concierge didn’t have them and had to have a set made. The space was generally clean and had plenty of storage space. Washer and dryer were nice. However, the kitchen felt a little dirty - sticky floor and cabinets and the coffee maker had old coffee grounds in it that were moldy. The bed wasn’t fully made - missing a top sheet and pillowcase - but I found some in a linen closet. The bed was very firm so it was not comfortable for my taste. There were some basic comforts that were not included - no blow dryer, shampoo, soap, kitchen towel or paper towels. Also, a couple lightbulbs were burned out and some of the plugs didn’t work in various rooms.
It did the trick, but not comfortably
1. I had a work obligation the first day in residence, and wanted to claim one night of the 5 night stay on an expense voucher. Only problem is that repeated requests for a closed out statement or folio were never successful, in spite of manager's assurance that it would be done.
2. Husband and I were in the area for a large family gathering and dinner. I found the kitchen to be adequate. Although the appliances were old, they worked and there were enough pots and pans, etc. If you expect to use the kitchen, bring everything: salt, pepper, oil, dish washer soap, dish towels, etc. As they are not supplied. For the last 2 days, the overhead light in the kitchen was burned out. Told the concierge, but there was no replacement while we were there.
3. The television did not work the entire time we were there. Reporting to the concierge did not result in a resolution. Various other small things, such as electric sockets not working, other burned out lights, out-dated (out of code) hot and cold water faucets in bathrooms were minor inconveniences.
4. If you sleep lightly, prepare to be awakened at 5:30am when Reagan Airport has its first flight. The apartment faces the airport and the noise level is very high.
Otherwise, the apartment is nicely furnished, sunny and spacious. The washer-dryer is new and was very welcome. Bring your own clothes soap if you expect to wash.
In summary, it was adequate for our needs, but we would never stay there again.
Trouble with getting keys from concierge.
Not good for 2 guests who don't want to share 1 bed.
Crystal City is an urban neighborhood in the southeastern corner of Arlington County, Virginia, just south of downtown Washington, D.C. Due to its extensive integration of residential high-rise buildings and offices using underground corridors, travel between stores, offices, and residences is possible without going above ground; thus, a large part of Crystal City is an underground city.
