“This hotel is a '10'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

If you don't like a first class hotel over-looking the Potomac River with views of Georgetown, you wouldn't like this hotel!
We spent the night in Arlington, VA in order to have easy access to a Metro station for the Fourth of July fireworks at the Washington Monument. Eventhough we wanted easy access (and got that....the station is 2 blocks from the hotel), the hotel was pleasantly surprising. We were able to reserve a suite room on the 8th floor and the views were outstanding. I agree with one of the other posts who said the hotel's attention to detail was off the charts. I especially liked the layout of the room, which had a separate living room and master bedroom with an exceptionally large bathroom (complete with shower AND Jacuzzi tub). This hotel is ultra-modern, so if you're expecting a boring Holiday Inn, you might want to stay somewhere else! My only complaint about this hotel was the front desk staff. We arrived at the hotel at 1:30pm and really wasn't expecting our room to be ready. The staff told us the room should be ready by 2:30 and I even gave them my cell phone number to call me when it was ready. Needless to say, I didn't get into the room until 4pm. If they can correct the bottle-neck at the front desk, this could be one of the area's best hotels.

Room Tip: Reserve the suite! It's a small condo!

We stayed here on July 4, 2012 for 107 per night.
Parking was very easy and very convenient.
Hotel is located about 2 blocks from the Metro Station.
Several eateries are nearby.
Hotel Lobby is located on the 4th Floor and it does not have a pool. :(

Rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. The kids were noticing the light fixtures, faucets, chairs, sheets, you name it! Everything in the room was very nice!!

Would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Le Meridien Arlington on June 15, 2012. We were celebrating our third wedding anniversary. The attention to detail was amazing. We were upgraded to a suite with a view of Georgetown and the Potomac. The room was incredible. We enjoyed all of the amenities of the hotel, (convienent parking, great location, extremely friendly and knowledgable staff and fantastic room with views!!).

We checked in late and a bottle of champagne was waiting for us with a welcome note from the GM. How impressive was that on on our anniversary!!!

Upon check in we were greeted by a professional and friendly staff and as I mentioned upgraded to a suite!!! The staff was so accomodating. Due to the restaurant being closed when we arrived we inquired about local restaurants and the staff had all the right answers. We decided to take their advice and order in for Pizza a a great little local shop.

Our stay could not have been better. I am looking forward to returning. Hopefully sooner than later.

Room Tip: Book at this hotel for a great location, luxury and great staff.

I would say the experience was a 3.5. The location wasn't bad and easy to get into the main Washington DC area by walking, taking public transportation or cab. The hotel was clean enough and the rooms were spacious. The valet parking is $18 on Friday and Saturday and $30 on weekdays.

The in-room breakfast we got was pretty standard with not so high quality ingredients. The hotel staff seemed pretty nonexistent in the hotel, which didn't bother us since we weren't there for that long but would probably pose a problem for someone who may need extra assistance or who may stay longer. There were small issues like our bed sheets having a hole that prevented me from giving four stars.

It was good for the price we got and the length we stayed.

This hotel is right in front of the Rosslyn Metro station which provides great value to any traveler.
The lobby is located on the 4th floor and the hotel rooms are from floor 4-12th.

The rest of the building are apartments.

The room is really nice and there are several places to eat crossing the street (Quiznos, McDonalds, Cosi, etc).

I spent a few nights at the Le Meridien in June. The hotel is located in Rosslyn, about a 5 minute walk from the Rosslyn metro stop. Taxis into DC were reasonable and we had no trouble getting taxis back to the hotel. The walk over the Key Bridge into Georgetown took about 10 minutes and was very convenient for early morning runs/walk and breakfast.

The room was nice and clean, beds were comfortable and we had a great view of the water and Georgetown on the 9th floor. The amenities in the bathroom were sparse, shower gel, shampoo and conditioners were in refillable containers in the shower. There's happy hour of wine and beer in the lobby in the evenings which was a nice touch.

We had lunch at the Amuse restaurant, the prices were reasonable and the food was good. Options around the hotel include Cosi, McDonalds, Starbucks, Chop it and a few other similar options. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The lobby is located on the 4th floor and the building also has private residences. I would stay here again if I needed a hotel in the area.

I just stayed at Le Meridien for 4 nights in the beginning of June, while traveling for business. This is a beautiful hotel - clean and elegant. It has a pleasant spa-like aroma so you instantly feel calmed upon entering it. It's centrally located to Georgetown, the Metro, businesses, food trucks for weekday lunch, bike trails, etc. There's a 24-hour gym, which I should have used more. I only experienced the restaurant, Amuse, in the morning for a light and healthy continental breakfast. In the evening, from 5-6pm, they offer a wine hour that is nice for networking. The staff was incredibly helpful and responsive, particularly Acey and Mohammed, who offered stellar customer service. The next time I'm in DC/VA for business, I will return!
