How to Get There
We have stayed at Le Meridien Arlington twice over the last few months and enjoyed each stay. We were looking for a hotel close to the Metro and this fit the bill. I read a few reviews before our first stay and was a little worried, but everything was awesome. When you enter, take the elevator to your right and go up to the 4th floor. Registration is there and then you will continue to a second set of elevators to go up to your room. In that hallway, the elevators on the right are for the guest rooms, the elevator on the left are for the residents.
The first time we stayed, we had a great view of the Key Bridge and Georgetown. The second time we just had a view of the surrounding builders. If you do have a view of the Key Bridge, you will see and hear planes taking off and landing at DCA - it's pretty cool!
The Rossyln metro station is a block away as well as a DC Circulator bus stop to take you into Georgetown. There is also numerous restaurants nearby including Starbucks and Bethesda Bagels.
Everyone we encountered on property was very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable and the room was well maintained. We will be sure to return!!
I was traveling for a college campus tour with my daughter and stayed at Le Meridien for one night. The hotel itself was okay for the price but the parking was terrible. There was absolutely no communication between the hotel and parking garage staff.
When I pulled up the car to the front entrance, the parking garage staff told me that self-parking charges $25 and valet-parking charges $60, so I did self-parking. When I went to the check-in counter, the hotel staff told me that there was a special promotion for $15. After I went down to the garage and complained about the misinformation, the parking staff gave me my parking number.
The next day, I found a scratch on my rear bumper when the parking staff pulled up my car, so I filed a damage claim.
A few days after we left the hotel, I received a letter from the parking garage saying that the scratch was indicated on a ticket stub (that I've never seen before) which means that they're not responsible for it.
These people are careless and made my parking experience hell. Please be careful!
I was to find this wonderful place to stay, perfectly located 1 block from the subway station, amazing view, great room and service. Most guest are business people but felt really comfortable withy family.
I was traveling for business and selected Le Meridien based on my experience at other Le Meridien properties overseas. The Arlington property was satisfactory, but did not offer some of the usual amenities I would expect. I was upgraded to an executive suite - for which I was grateful. It had a sitting area, jacuzzi tub, and an elliptical machine in the room. That's great; but there was no coffee machine. It's a bit of a drag to be required to go out to find a coffee in the morning. The bed was a bit lumpy, and the furniture and fixtures were dated. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
Business trip with my wife. Once to this hotel she was on her own as I was in a conference. No close places adjacent to easily walk - construction on sidewalks and roads going across to Georgetown at the moment caused her to Uber (mind you it’s not far). Limited menu for room service.
Great view of Georgetown from our room. AC was very good. Bed was comfy. Staff very friendly. They skipped our room for cleaning which wouldn’t have been a big deal except we were in a handicap room and the shower let water puddle across the entire bathroom floor. We learned to corral it in with many towels.
