The Woodward
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We were concerned after reading a couple of the earlier reviews, but we had good communications with Bridgestreet via email and were allowed to check in early and checkout late. The apartment was clean, large, comfortable and quiet. We had 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room/dining, kitchen, washer dryer etc. Everything worked; security was great; 2 blocks from White House so good for touristy site seeing. Being able to eat breakfast in and come back for an afternoon rest was a real plus. We found a Whole Foods in Foggy Bottom and even had a carry out dinner one evening. We would definitely use again.

I called to ask for early checking...let 's face it they want you to check in at 4 and check out at 11. I was told they were going to try, the person on the phone was not very nice. When we got there, they knew absolutely nothing about my called and did not wanted to hear it. The room was ready close to 4 pm. Once we got in none to the TV were working, I made 3 phones calls and 2 people had to come in to fix the problem.

I do like the location but they need to improve their customer services to short term guess.

We booked an apartment and paid for it in advance then less that 24 hors before we due to arrive we received an email from them saying that they were overbooked and were transferring us to another property. The other property was much further out of town and not suitable to us at all so we cancelled immediately and had yo find snother place to stay, which ended up costing us a lot more due to late notice and availability. We were very lucky to have seen their email as we were not online most of the time. A phone call from them would have been courteous. Even better, they should have honoured their confirmed booking. To then make it worse, we had to chase them up several times to get our money back from them. This took over 3 weeks. I must add that Booking.com, who we booked the property with we're excellent in chasing them up to get our money back. Top marks to them! Zero out of 100 for Bridgestreet.

My husband, two children and I stayed at these apartments from the 17/6/13 to the 25/6/13. We made our booking through Booking.com, and despite a one bedroom and not a two bedroom being booked for us and having to spend our first night in two separate apartments on separate floors , I would still highly recommend staying at these apartments. We were put into our two bedroom apartment the next day and found it to be beautifully furnished, very spacious with a full kitchen including a dishwasher, dining table, lounge room, two bathrooms and a washing machine and dryer. This is a great location, about a block from the Whitehouse and close to all landmarks. The neighbourhood is safe and you can walk around without a worry. There are some good restaurants close by as well as a pharmacy which also carries some food items. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this to my friends.

Despite an almost perfect place (location, amenities, services) an open window would be nice in the spring. Inside mounted storm windows prevented any type if fresh air from flowing. Desk staff is a bit daft at times, but splendidly helpful at others. I'd choose this before a hotel any day.

I booked a couple of nights in these serviced apartments through booking.com as the price was VERY reasonable. I then got an email apologising that an incorrect price had been charged and wouod I like to cancel the booking or pay a lot more? Naturally, I chose neither option and explained that I have entered into a contract they offered and which they should honour. To their credit they did. Nice small apartment, Good to have the privacy instead of a hotel. I would happily stay again although the cost might now go above my work budget. but I'll check carefully.
