What Our Guests Are Saying

 

Check out what our guests are saying about their Dwel Experience.

We think we're onto something here.


 


"Dwel is a model for what corporate, furnished housing should be! From start to finish, Rob and the team at Dwel provided the best service I've ever experienced at any corporate housing. They were super responsive, flexible, and accommodating throughout our 3 month stay. The property in Ballston was gorgeous, well-furnished and maintained, and stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Dwel thought of every detail, including offering use of a Pack n' Play for our baby - one less item to bring with us. I cannot recommend Dwel highly enough to anyone passing through the metro DC area for work or pleasure!" - Jenny P. | Dwel @ The View

"Excellent service by the DWEL Team- Amanda, Rob, Kyle. Very professional and responsive. Would definitely use DWEL again, and recommend them." - Dave C. | Dwel @ Ovation

"In a word, staying with Dwel was fantastic. We highly recommend the Dwel team on every count. Communication was excellent from check-in to check-out, and the apartment itself was superior -- modern and furnished with nearly everything we needed in a furnished apartment. We appreciated Dwel's attention to detail, too. We will definitely look to stay with Dwel next time we're in the area." - Charles S. | Dwel @ Latitude

"Great location in a modern mid-rise building. Rob and team were very welcoming and responsive to all our requests. Very comfortable and close to public transit, shopping, and great restaurants. New building was still working out kinks but Dwel team responded quickly to concerns. Many thanks!" - Erica S. | Dwel @ Highgate

"I stayed for 3 weeks and the apartment was perfect. The views are as advertised and amazing! There are many restaurants and even a grocery store within walking distance. Apartment had all the amenities to support a group of 4 over three weeks. In addition, it is close to the metro, so travel around DC without renting a car was very easy. I frequently travel to DC for business, and will now always look to see if this apartment is available. Communication with the property management group was also top notch. Someone always responded quickly to any communication, and were very helpful with my needs. I can't say enough good things. Everything from the walk-through to check-out was excellent. If you are considering this property, book it! " - Eric W. | Dwel @ The View

"I moved to DC and had no idea where to live, with my primary focus on my new job, I could not spend time on anything related to housing. Dwel Serviced Residences provided EVERYTHING in a few days, FULL SERVICE and took care of every little detail. 1st CLASS company and very personal service! #BIGFAN" - Duff R. | Dwel @ The Hepburn

“This apartment was fantastic! The view from the rooftop and club room was spectacular. The beds were comfortable, and Dwel added many personal touches, such as themed towels for our kids and step stools to get into raised beds. The pool started off chilly in the early part of the summer but warmed up after a few weeks. There were many great places to work and play, with a gorgeous courtyard, amazing workout facility, nice business center, and incredibly spacious club room with a pool table, ping pong table, and shuffle board table. WiFi worked great throughout the building, and I was able to print directly from my devices. In short, we loved it!” - Joe & Patricia H. | Dwel @ Parc Merdian

"I really appreciated Dwel's clean, affordable apartment offering at Parc Meridian at Eisenhower center. It was the nicest apartment that I have ever had. Thanks!" - Paul L. | Dwel @ Parc Meridian

"This beautiful penthouse has a wrap around floor to ceiling million dollar view! After a long day at work, that view was exactly what I needed (along with the leather loungers with ottomans). There isn't anything they didn't think of when furnishing this apartment! The Master bed slept amazingly! They spared no expense in making this a real retreat. I loved every minute of my stay!" - Kathy H. | Dwel @ Ovation

"Just finished spending a year living in a Dwel residence. The apartment was fantastic and they responded quickly to all of my requests. Best of all the internet speed was top notch. Sure beats an extended stay hotel. I'd recommend Dwel to anyone." - Drew C. | Dwel @ Nouvelle

"First class in every way. Dwel anticipates your needs before you do and everything you could possibly want is provided. The apartment I stayed in was absolutely beautiful and if I didn't have to go home again, I would have moved in happily and never left. And since I stayed in a Dwel apartment, nothing else has really been comparable. You cannot go wrong with Dwel."  Frances H. | Dwel @ Ovation

"This was a perfect experience. My husband and our small baby were in the area for work. We were blown away by this beautiful place and how clean it was. The amenities are wonderful, as is the location. But what put this trip above and beyond the rest of our stays at other properties was the attention to detail. Everything was done so thoroughly from the clear communication with Rob to the little things that make a big difference like the remotes that had been cleaned and placed in a little bag before our arrival. We will miss our time at this property but I know we will be back!" - Jennifer B. | Dwel @ John Carlyle

"Absolutely first class in every way. I've never been treated better and was just a pleasure to know that organizations like Dwel exist to provide superb service with a personal touch. You cannot go wrong with Dwel!!"  - Dave H. | Dwel @ Latitude

"I cannot say enough about the service and quality of the residence that Dwel provided for me. The attention to every detail including how close it was to my location made my transition into my new role extremely easy. It is hard enough thinking about working in a new location or in a situation where travel is required without also having to continually worry about where you are going to stay. The entire process was easy and smooth and I can only thank everyone at Dwel for that." - Anthony B. | Dwel @ Nouvelle

"The Dwel team went above and beyond in making me feel at home in their residence. During the year I have to travel a lot and it is tough to find a place to stay that allows me to feel safe and comfortable when I'm away from home. On my stay I became ill and a Dwel team member left me a get well bag and card to help in my recovery. I have stayed at many places over the years and no housing group compares to the Dwel team. They are now my go to team for housing; my next stay with them is already in the books!"  - Andie O. | Dwel @ Ovation

"Dwel was the best at all steps of the way, from booking the apartment well in advance, to everything that had anything to do with the booking. Rob was a super host and very flexible -- meeting me at the apartment late at night (instead of mid-afternoon) when my flight was canceled. The apartment itself at the Parc Meridian at Eisenhower Station in Old Town Alexandria was just perfect. Only a short walk to King Street and the historic center, a two-minute walk to the metro and the Yellow Line that takes you right into DC, seconds away from I-95 and I-495, a 10-minute walk to Whole Foods and the CVS Pharmacy, the AAA is right across the street, two 7-Elevens down the block, coffee shops, dry cleaners, you-name-it, they're all there, across the street. And if you have dogs that you want to let loose (mine were home), there is a fenced dog park just two blocks away. Plus, the apartment itself was fantastic and Dwel made sure to prepare it with anything that one might want for starters -- tea, coffee, snacks, soaps and detergents, shampoo, etc., simply everything. Except maybe an extra blanket for people like me who are always cold! :) I totally wholly recommend Dwel Serviced Residences and totally recommend their very welcoming accommodations at the Parc Meridian at Eisenhower Station. And I will indeed go back to them on my next trip to the U.S. Rob-- thank you so much for your hospitality!" - Gwynn M. | Dwel @ Parc Meridian

“The apartment was perfectly presented, immaculate and well stocked with the necessities (plates, cups, pots, utensils etc). Dwel communicated in a timely and friendly manner. I would certainly stay again if back in the area.”  - Cheryl B. | Dwel @ Ovation

"I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Dwel and this great apartment. The apartment was fully furnished (they thought of everything) and tastefully decorated. The staff that I dealt with (Amanda and Rob) was organized, professional, friendly, cooperative and very responsive when I requested some additional items. The location was unbeatable with 38 restaurants within a 2 block radius. Parking was included which is a must in that area. I would suggest that if you are one of those people who doesn't like to sleep with your phone in the bedroom, bring a bedroom clock. While not a big deal, I did find it odd that they charge you for cleaning but then ask you to do a light cleaning when you leave. My only regret is that while I travel to the area frequently, I typically do not meet the two-week minimum requirement but if I ever do, I will definitely stay there again!" - Linda S. | Dwel @ Avant Reston

"This is my second stay at apartment services by Dwel. And I had nothing but a positive experience! Rob helped a lot in arranging the accommodation and was very flexible to meet our needs. Also great thanks to Amanda, who met me and my colleague and provided all necessary assistance at arrival and during the stay. The apartment itself and the views are just amazing and had everything we needed. Gym, swimming pool, parking, shops, and property in general are just great. Will definitely use Dwel services again and highly recommend to anybody who travels to McLean/Tysons VA - I can promise, you will not be disappointed."  - Andrey T. | Dwel @ Ovation

"Dwel Serviced Residences was a life saver for me and my husband. My husband and I had accommodations all set up with another company, and arrived at the Ovation Park Crest on our supposed to be move in day, to be told by the other company that they had double booked our room, and we could not move in. My husband had to take care of everything, due to me being at work. Dwel overheard my husband talking with the other company, and came to our rescue! Dwel ended up renting a room with higher end amenities than our original room, for the same price, and allowed us to move in the same day. The room was amazing on the 17th floor, and they left little welcome gifts for both me and my husband, and our dog! They left treats, food, and water bowls for our dog too. Rob McDaniel took care of everything we needed and wanted and was always happy to help us. Then there was Fred Krause, who takes care of all the financial things. Both were so helpful, kind, and patient with us. If I ever need a place to stay temporarily, or know anyone else looking for a place, I will for sure go back to Dwel, or suggest them to anyone. Thank you Dwel!!!"  - Jody S. | Dwel @ Ovation

"If you are looking to stay in Northern Virginia for a short period of time., the option of staying in one of Dwel's corporate apartments is a wonderful alternative to a hotel stay. The prices are reasonable, especially for a family of 4 that that would require two hotel rooms. The apartment buildings have all of the same (or better) amenities of a hotel (i.e. outdoor swimming pool, gym, internet access, concierge, social rooms, parking, etc.) and certain amenities most hotel rooms do not have (i.e. kitchen, living room and washer and dryer). The founder of Dwel, Rob McDaniel, is a consummate professional. He anticipated all of my guests' needs and was available for questions during the day, night and over the weekend. I give Dwel my highest recommendations and feel confident that if you select them, you will not be disappointed)."  - Bruce P. | Dwel @ Ovation

"We had a wonderful experience with Dwel. We stayed in a Dwel serviced residence at Nouvelle building for six weeks. The team members were flexible, accommodating and very helpful. We felt at home literally. The team members ensured that we had an enjoyable stay. Thank you Dwel team!"  - Lana B. | Dwel @ Nouvelle

"I cannot say enough great things about Dwel. My daughter and I moved to Vienna/Fairfax VA area unexpectedly from Turkey and needed an alternative place to live for about 3 months until we find a permanent home. Rob was very accommodating in helping us find the right apartment and location that best fit our needs. The Modera Avenir apartment was decorated beautifully and very comfortable. Plus, being able live right above a grocery store and the Dunn Loring metro station was a huge added bonus. I highly recommend Dwel residential services and apartments for your short term stay. It beats living in a hotel for an extended period of time!"  - Tuti H. |Dwel @ Modera Avenir

"I've had a lot of 'okay' experiences with corporate housing and few bad ones.  This was the first great experience.  Really, really, well done."
- Dennis C. | Dwel @ Ovation

“I recently had a work trip to the DC area for about 6 weeks, and Dwel's apartment made a long stint away from home feel like home! The apartment came fully furnished with everything you can think of, along with having underground parking/gym/pool that was immaculately kept. Also, Dwel's staff was very attentive if there were any issues that I experienced during my stay. I will definitely be using Dwel for my future trips to DC! ” - Jason G. | Dwel @ Ovation

“The entire experience was exceptional. I was met initially and given an introduction to the apartment which was extremely comfortable and actually better than quaint. I loved the set up and the accommodations, much better than a high priced hotel. I spent three weeks attending to business....perfect parking , fabulous neighborhood and gracious hosts....It was simply fantastic.  Loved everything....comfortable bed, great TV connections...well designed kitchen layout...just charming in so many ways."  - Tom T. | Dwel @ The Mill

“This is a great one bedroom apartment! Very clean, open and had a pretty great view as well. The location was perfect with easy access to the beltway, toll road 123 or 7. DC 25 minutes on a good day this really is a great home away from home quiet with a comfy bed and deep soaking bath tub. The building is brand new and has 24 front desk person. The garage parking was very safe. Dwel team members are very responsive when there was a minor issue. If you can get one of these apartments do it, the cost is the same as a hotel but it feels like home."  - Jennifer M. | Dwel @ Ovation

“Stay was just wonderful. Our flight delayed a lot, and that was truly late check-in, but Kyle managed to meet me in person to give the keys and show the apartment. Apartment itself is extremely comfortable and felt like home - no hotel l've ever in stayed can compete. Location is great - was walking distance to metro and the office. Quality of sleep is just perfect because of excellent beds. I would stay again and highly recommend Dwel guys because of top-notch service.”  - Andrey T. | Dwel @ Ovation

"This is definitely nice and fantastic staying at Ovation by Dwel team. All is professional when engaged but smoothest and most comfort. The space has made me still feeling that I was taking a great vacation at my own house. Parking is also great. People who stay here is so nice. Dwel team has always supported and advised since before checked in until staying , they responded extremely fast. Actually there are many things to write in very positive way - all is perfected and impressive, and I will come back. Thanks a lot." - Chakarin and Sandy S. | Dwel @ Ovation

“Incredible place and accommodating host. The apartment was clean and spacious, with everything we needed (from an iron to extra towels and new bottle of hand soap!) These guys do a great job and were very nice hosts. Even caught up with us afterwards to return some running shoes we'd left behind. Highly recommend!” - Noah G. | Dwel @ Nouvelle

“I was in the process of moving to the DC area for work, and was looking for an alternative to a hotel, found The Mill- awesome place. The location was a plus as well, just a 10 min walk to the metro, made my commute to work a breeze. Rob was a terrific host- gave me a tour of the building upon arrival, and pointed out some key places to visit in the area." - Josh S. | Dwel @ The Mill

“My wife and I stayed here while work was being done on our home in DC. It was so nice to see another part of town. The location of this studio is PERFECT for Old Town Alexandria. Just a 5 minute walk to shopping and restaurants on King Street, and there is a grocery and coffee shop right next to this building. The apartment is comfortable and well stocked with everything you need to feel right at home. I was so impressed with the attention to detail from the Dwel team- the amenities were perfect and carefully considered (Mrs. Meyers cleaning products, eco-friendly toiletries, re-usable shopping bags). We loved it!”  - Parks B. | Dwel @ The Mill

"What a great apartment but more importantly, what a great renting experience! The apartment was very comfortable with nice furnishings and a great location -- medium walk/short drive to Tyson's Mall (filled with numerous restaurant options) and walking distance to Starbucks and a major grocery store. We really enjoyed the convenience of brand new washer/dryer, availability of all kinds of kitchen utensils and an incredibly comfortable bed and couch. Wireless was super fast and reliable. Was allowed to arrive early and given a tour of the building when checking in. Free parking pass included! We left some important documents in the apartment and they immediately emailed us to let us know and then sent the docs priority mail. While there might be less expensive apartment options in the vicinity, the quality and comfort of the apartment, its location and the professionalism and caring of the Dwel team made this apartment a great deal! Would rent again in a heartbeat."   - Nancy G. | Dwel @ Ovation

"Amazing property and great attention to detail. The host was always available to help and responded to questions within minutes. Looking forward to staying with you guys again."  - Tigran G. | Dwel @ Ovation
 
"What a nice place to stay! Well-appointed and very comfortably furnished, we felt welcome right away. Our host, Rob, greeted us at convenient time, showed us the ropes with no fuss and we were set. We would stay again, not something we often say."  - Elizabeth H. | Dwel @ Ovation
 
"Fantastic Host! Great location with the Dwel touch! I will return again soon and look forward to the experience."  - Craig R. | Dwel @ Ovation
 
"Everything was perfect. Very friendly and professional welcome!" - Mana L. | Dwel @ Ovation
 
"Amazing or astounding, I can't quite tell which word best describes our "experience" with Dwel. That's what it was, it's not simply staying somewhere when you stay here. It's to "Dwel" there. Arriving late one night with my family they met us and not only helped with bags but had a little bear and a book for our little one. For babies they have a new pack and play and super cute child seat :) Our favorite wines were chilled in the refrigerator, the outlets covered, fresh milk, fresh bread, snacks and food that let us relax. The view, the custom mattresses, the splendid parking, immediacy of a 24/hour Harris Teeter +Starbucks and down right badass Chinese take out from China Wok are nothing compared to the service. Quick replies to all our questions and accommodating service at a level only paralleled by family. They are serious about changing the paradigm of serviced apartments. When you look up Dwel Serviced Apartments in the channels area of You Tube they mean everything you see. The commute from downtown Washington is short by car once you exit the city. There are three metro stops within a kilometer with a bus linking you to them. Let's not forget the soaps. I'm a road warrior and when I see "made in China" on the soap I will go to buy different soap before I use it (Hilton screwed up there). They have William Roam soaps, made in America and splendid. They also provide shaving cream by Roam... I wish I had more of it. It's also worth noting the 75 mbps WiFi and the Roku TV's with Netflix accounts in every room. Won't find that in any hotel! I can go on and on but the truth is I've traveled the world and never found a place that treated my family as well as Dwel. They deserve every word of praise I can muster. All I ask of you fellow travelers is to give them a try and treat them and their property with the respect and kindness they give you."  - Carl P. | Dwel @ Ovation
