We were in town to see my artwork hanging in the Pentagon, so we wanted to be nearby. Which means you're near all the D.C. attractions.
Le Méridien Arlington is located in a busy business district during the weekdays. Le Méridien is a beautiful, modern, upscale hotel. They had very friendly and helpful staff. They were more than willing to accomodate us upon our early arrival to the hotel. The lobby, bar & grill are what you would expect at this price point, sleek & chic, (Check Expedia for a great rate).
There are plenty eating establishments within walking distance, Chipolte, and Ruby Tuesday, to name a few. The area is very safe. On weekdays there are several food trucks parked curbside.
Fun fact, from our room we could look across the Potamac river to the Exorcist (1973) stairs, those of you who know, recall this famous movie scene.
You are just across the river from Georgetown, a wonderful neighborhood. We ate at Pier 2934, Cajun Seafood with an asian twist, we had the po'boy sandwiches.
You'll find that parking is at a premium in the entire Washington D.C. area. By-pass the valet at Le Méridien and park your own car for $18.00 a night, you cannot come-n-go in this garage, you pay by the hour. It's much higher if the valet parks your car. There is parking on the street, but we could never find any spaces available.
Parking around Washington D.C. attractions is very difficult, you'll need to park at meters. Payment is done by calling 877-727-5758 (877 PARK 758), or downloading the mobile app at http://us.parkmobile.com. They accept PayPal and credit cards.
If you choose the Metrorail do your research. I suggest you park your car, start and end your day at The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. It has a huge food court for tired and hungry kids, with upscale shopping for mom. It's a convenient stop on the metro line.
Enjoy yourself in the capitol of the greatest country in the world.
