How to Get There
We visited DC 12/7/18 and I am a Platinum member, the location is great and the rooms are amazing however everything else falls. Check in was good, was greeted by a young woman and man at night and they were great. However I tried to get some drinks for the room so I visited the hotel bar and the woman bartender was not friendly and ignored me for about 10 minutes, when she finally greeted me I asked for 2 drinks from the menu and her response was “Oh I do not have that” and walked away without suggesting an alternate as if I was an annoyance to her. Walked back to my room without a drink however my wife wanted a drink and we decided to order them through room service, the room service lady was great however everything when downfall again, I ordered 4 mojitos and was promply called by the same rude bartender who said she didnt have the ingredients to make them and suggested she would make margaritas instead, drinks came 10 mins later and were delivered by the nice room service lady. The drinks were HORRIBLE, which was expected from such rude and what seemed lazy bartender. During checkout I did not complaint as the check out person from the morning did not ask or care to ask about how my stay was or if everything went well. First time I stay in this property and last, this is seriously hindering how I see being a platinum elite member of Marriott. I have spent a lot of money in this chain and never had such a horrible experience especially considering I was with my wife and son.
Recently stayed at Le Meridien for business, first let me say it is a terrific location, close to the Metro, Georgetown, Reagan Airport-exceptionally convenient. Other than that factor, I do not recommend staying here. I arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, my room was not ready till 4:30pm (check-in is 3pm). My room included breakfast but when I went down to the restaurant in the morning the staff was unaware and so was the front desk staff till I showed them my copy of my reservation. The cleanliness of the room was atrocious. The housekeeper did not provide enough towels or body wash. One day she left me only one clean washcloth. They were two of us staying in the room. She also failed to empty a very full trash can. I began to question the cleanliness of the sheets and the complimentary robe because the room was poorly maintained while I was there. After I checked out I never received an itemized copy of my bill via email. I had to call the hotel multiple times (it took 2 weeks) till I finally received the bill. This is supposed to be a 4-star. It would not recommend staying here. You do not get what you pay for.
I love a Le Meridien. They have such soft beds. Everything I was expecting to experience here, actually happened. The bar is a very lively scene. Rooms are very clean and modern. Two downsides: 1- you're in arlington, so if you have to be in DC, prepare for some traffic. 2 - you have to transfer elevators at the main floor to go from the street level to the hotel rooms.
This is a decent hotel in a convenient location. The property is in good condition and the staff is courteous and helpful. It loses one star because there is no coffee or tea available in the room. It loses a second star because the $21 American breakfast buffet is a little fruit, sausage, bacon, potatoes, and scrambled eggs. A very poor breakfast value.
This hotel is very easy to overlook but is super conveniently located near the Rosslyn metro and right across the river from Georgetown. With nice weather it is a lovely place to go almost anywhere but awesome for exploring the outdoors or cityscapes. The beds are excellent as are the staff. There is a downside with parking as it is quite expensive so would recommend just taking metro or ride-share or wait until after-hours to look for some street parking which is super limited. The restaurant and bar area are very conducive for friends and family as is the outdoor area. Highly recommend this great property perfectly situated on the Potomac.
