Resident review|Recommended: Yesyou get what you pay for, i have signed for a second year because of the price and proximity to metro location. staff are nice but unorganized and do not seem to work cohesively. the amenities are so so and the gym is outdated. updates are being made to the courtyard which are long over due and necessary to compete at all with the far nicer buildings in this area. Price is the best thing
A great place to live|Recommended: YesThe property is perfectly centrally located for access to DC and Arlington, but also to Duke St. and 95 495. The apartment layouts are great for space and separation from neighbors. The staff here are just wonderful and are always kind and helpful. The parking, the grounds, the location and proximity to Metro, the condition and amenities of the apartments, all are excellent. New paint, beige with white trim and new beige carpet is refreshing and something you can coordinate furnishings and decorations with, instead of plain white everywhere. The view is beautiful from the West side of phase 2, with the Washington Monument visible in the distance. Move in is easy, parking is adequate.
The Meridian is a good place to live|Recommended: YesIt is a good place to live. The people are nice and it is well maintained.
.|Recommended: Yes .
Great Place |Recommended: Yes- great location - 4 min walk to train station, 15 walk min to trader joes and harris teether, 20 min walk to old town - friendly staff - the security at the mail desk is the best He's so friendly and jolly. And if you have an maintenance issue, they come immediately to fix it. - awesome amenities - pool gym balcony - fun building activities aka free food - awesome view of Washington Masonic temple and the river
Gtreat location, great people, and great service|Recommended: YesThis apartment is in a great location for people in their twenties to people in their sixties. A stones throw from the metro, a short walk to Old Town Alexandria, and close enough to D.C. to easily get to any event in the district. All of the staff is helpful and kind, and maintenance is quick and professional. My only gripe is with the older appliances and carpeting in the apartment, it could use an update. The facilities are well kept and the community is relatively nice.
If you are a millennial, this place isn't for you.|Recommended: NoIf you are a millennial like me, you probably use Amazon a lot to save lots of time going to grocery stores at what not. I have so far lost two packages since moving here. The front desks receive all package on your behalf, but they have a TERRIBLE system. First of all, the system doesn't even take down the full tracking number the package had, so when they lost my package, I didn't even have a tracking number to tell the carrier. Second, these people are too busy defending themselves more than trying to figure out where the lost package went. They didn't even apologize. SMH... We also had fly issues in my APT. My wife is super clean, so no, it wasn't us being unusually clean. Fly problem is one thing, but they called the bug squad. They called to ask permission to enter the premises, and I specifically told them which area of the APT had the issue. The flies were coming out from the fluorescent light casing above the kitchen. I taped the gaps so no more flies would fly out of the casing. When I came back home that day, I found the tape still there and saw shadows of the flies corpses still on the light. When I called them, they were oblivious to everything and said they would have someone come back out again that week. That was two to three weeks ago... I usually like Meridian Properties, but this wasn't one I was impressed by. Save yourself some trouble, and find better apartments nearby or move closer to the old town.

Love where I live, minus construction of building next door noisy |Recommended: YesBest staff, timely fixtures, good price for apartment
I hope things don't start going down hill in this place|Recommended: YesWe have loved living here for the past three years. Today I went down stairs when I got home from work to get a cup of coffee from the coffee machine, like I have every day for the past three years. The coffee machine was off with a sign that read Coffee Machine hours 5 00 am to 2 00 pm. How terrible and stingy Why would you put hours on the coffee machine I don't know what it was that prompeted the building to put hours on the coffee machine, but I hope the decision is reconsidered. And I hope this isn't the beginning of taking away all the things that make this building such a great place to live.
Quaint, clean and efficient.|Recommended: YesIf you are looking for an apartment not in the city but within a close driving distance to many amenities, this is a great location for you. Right by a metro stop as well.
Have really been enjoying my time here|Recommended: YesSo people understand my rating system. 1 star Severely lacking deal breaker. 2 star Lacking but manageable. 3 star Meets bare minimum of standards or I can't comment on it. 4 star Exactly what I want and I'm happy with it. 5 star Above and beyond, I'm really impressed. Parking I don't have a car so I can't really comment Noise Sound isn't an issue unless somebody is being extremely noisy which is rare or short timed during times that you can't really blame them. e.x. the afternoon of a weekend. Grounds Everything is clean and well kept. Construction Everything seems to be built up to standard and functions well. Maintenance These people are amazing, quick and professional If you have a problem just report it and they will fix it quickly. Staff Great people, always friendly and helpful. Overall Community between neighbors is somewhat lacking but that could just be the neighbor's or my own fault. Otherwise the complex tries to promote community with events that are often fun when you don't have much else going on that day. I would recommend to a friend as I don't have anything to complain about and while it isn't some amazing hidden gem of value it is exactly what I want for the price I want with some nice touches added which can often be hard enough to find. My rating for everything is 4.5 5.
Good property bad parking|Recommended: YesGenerally no bugs, parking is a challenge - prepare to need a paint job when you move out. Building staff is friendly. General noise isn't an issue. overall good experience here.
Thanks for the feedback Sybil.
Good living, good staff|Recommended: YesApartment maintenance is quick to respond to work orders. Not many serious or even minor problems with apartments. Parking kind of sucks with the columns, but not much can be done about that. I am enjoying living here. Very comfortable. Can hardly hear anything that's not in your own apartment.
Very good|Recommended: Yesvery nice apartment complex
Great Location Nice Staff|Recommended: YesThe area is up and coming and it is a great location despite the projects around the corner . The staff is very friendly and helpful. Love the underground parking Great gym and roof top area The glass room apartments heat up like crazy in the summer and the AC does not get cool enough. I have a dog and clean up her poo but there are a lot of residents that don't clean up after their dogs The kitchen is dated and the linoleum they use in the kitchen and bathroom looks cheap.
