“Pet-friendly hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

As a former Kimpton hotel, Le Meridien has maintained the pet-friendly status that they had before. No deposits and no weight limits. This was great because we were in town for a wedding and needed to bring our two large dogs. The hotel's lobby is several floors up and then the elevators are split between the hotel and condominiums. The rooms are upscale - stylish, upscale, simple and comfortable. There are parks close by to walk dogs. I recommend this place, even if you don't have a dog.

WOW! I cannot say enough about the EXCEPTIONAL service we received during our 3 night stay at Le Meridien in Arlington. Our suite was beautiful (fabulous tub, great shower, wonderful layout, super clean). The hotel is only a block away from The Metro and a quick ride by taxi or limo into DC. Those would have made it a great trip - but the exceptional service made the stay one of our best trips ever. The staff was friendly, outgoing, helpful and caring - - from the staff at the front desk, to housekeeping to bell services. No one was too busy to answer questions and go the extra mile (and traveling with a 12 year old on this trip presented some special needs for us!). A special thank you to Bill who went out of his way to make sure our trip was the best it could be.... for going all the way to the bottom level of the parking garage to retrieve our luggage when we arrived before check-in, for securing our transportation for us several times, for answering our multitude of questions and even helping me find a local McDonalds when my 12 year old tired of "hotel food" (which was GREAT)... THANK YOU!!! This is a fabulous hotel with the best staff. When we come back to DC in the fall - it is a GIVEN that we will stay at Le Meridien in Arlington! Thank you for a great experience!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 12th floor in a suite with a FABULOUS large tub and separate shower. A great value...

We stayed 3 nights at the Le Meridien Hotel in Arlington, VA and it was a great experience. The entire staff was accomodating and professional and made us feel welcomed. In addition, the rooms were clean and relaxing, we had a beautiful view of Gerogetown, plus the wine hour and eco option for a $10 breakfast voucher were awesome. I even got a little ill and and an executiev town car with a very nice and curtious driver was available to take me to CVS to pick up my prescription. This is a very nice hotel located in such a prime location of the rail system, dining, shopping etc. Whenever I'm in town I wil always stay at the Le Meridian and recommend that others visiting the area do the same.

Room Tip: request a view of Georgetown

The hotel is close to Georgetown, a good 10 to 15 minute walk the bridge and you will be in Georgetown area. The hotel lighting is very relaxing, the lobby, the hallways and the room has a very calm feel. The room is very clean, spot free! very friendly staff at the front desk.
The area before the restaurant entrance is great space to just sit, read and relax (especially right by the fireplace).
I have stayed in hotels where it was very busy and the lobby would be so crowded that it felt like a market place, however here at the Le Meridein, regardless of how busy the hotel is, the feel of warmth, calmness and relaxation is always there amidst the crowd.

As a starwood gold I am very happy this hotel has re-branded.

We had two rooms for 3 nights. Rooms nice amenities and good quality beds. Do not have a pet and the thing was that when this was Kimpton they had pet beds in each room, something I felt should only be delivered to rooms with a pet. I do not know what there policy on pets would be now.

Really liked the location of the hotel and that there were many casual dining options in area including the Chop't salad restaurant that had great variety and excellent quality. Discovered this chain here and have visited them in New York now as well.

The valet parking was promt and efficient and not outragious.

The Le Meridien in Arlington does a good job as an understated and modern hotel. It shares the building with a condominium, whose residents also use the hotel's gym - and parking. The rooms are small in the hotel, but well done. The bathroom was adequate, but not finished as nicely as the rest of the room (small cosmetic details such as cheap looking tile). Rooms are quiet and the staff is professional. The parking garage is also used by the condo and apparently also for monthly parkers working in the area. As the lot was full when I came back during an afternoon I had to valet park, which is more expensive. Also, while having a nice gym for a hotel no towels were offered - which raises some ick factor on the equipment. Overall, a good value for the money.

I was upgraded to a suite once and it was amazing - I wish I was able to take advantage of the HUGE jacuzzi at the time. But even the regular rooms are great. Nicely designed and great views of Georgetown and the Potomac. Breakfast is just right. There are plenty of places to eat in Rosslyn/Courthouse area nearby and Georgetown is just a hop across the bridge. Plenty of places to park later at night and easy access to major highways as well as the Rosslyn Metro. Make sure you check out Chopt - I am sold on those salad creations joints! There was one night where I was awakened by loud voices coming from the vent in the bathroom - must've been from an adjoining room. Didn't last long, and not that big a deal. Front desk is very helpful.
