Pretty solid valuesubmitted by Jean R. - |Recommended: YesGood value for what you pay.
Tad expensive but wonderfulsubmitted by Mike - |Recommended: YesI've found the building to be quite nice, and consistently improving. Over a few years here, they've upgraded gym equipment, roof chairs, made the pool pass system easier, begun allowing pets. The culture has also become a bit more adult it was a bit fratty a few years ago. But I'm writing mainly to counter the few complaints I see about maintenance. In my experience, I've always very much appreciated is how quickly and effectively management has responded to my maintenance tickets. I've lived with individual landlords before and this is effortless and amazing by comparison. I want to search for a complaint to put here as well, but truly this is a wonderful building if you can afford it.
I think that overall the property is nice and kept in good conditionsubmitted by Antonia D. - |Recommended: YesThe only issue I have is with parking. I have had some troubles with my car, and when I asked for a temporary pass, they make me bother the dealership and have them send an email with the exact amount of time that they will have the car for..
Luxurious, Clean and Newsubmitted by Jordan J. - |Recommended: YesThis is my third apartment complex that I have lived in within the last 4 years. This is by far the best one. The newly renovated apartments have a very clean and luxurious feel to them. They are very comfortable to live in, and offer great amenities. Reading some of the reviews on here - I see a few negative comments regarding the concierge or leasing office. My experience has been nothing short of excellent with these individuals. They are extremely helpful, and act in a timely manner. If you're respectful , they will definitely reciprocate the kindness. Great overall apartment complex to live in The parking spaces can be a little tight though But that's a non-issue for most
Very timely servicesubmitted by Jessica K. - |Recommended: YesI have lived at the Meridian at Courthouse now for almost 6 months. During that time, I have found the front desk attendants to be very helpful and courteous. The rent is easy to pay since its all online via the portal. I've only have to put in one request for service and the item was taken care of within one business day.
Deceitfulsubmitted by Greg - |Recommended: No-Concierge Better off with no one at the desk- rude, never AT the desk, not helpful -Parking overpriced despite the building taking more and more spots away 10 for guest night . If you're a student or a guest that spends more than 1 night in a month there, you may be hounded by Arlington tax collectors happened to my friend from PA -Sunroom not A C nor heat Godspeed to whichever roommate gets that room -Roof is never open despite what they claim hours to be consistently locked all day almost every day . -Maintenance never fixed any of the issues we reported -Deposit was needed solely for financial security since we were young not for damage. More than half of what was taken was due to damage that didn't even exist took pics before moving -Oh, you need to call anyone who works for the meridian that isn't a robot even during business hours You'll be waiting for days so might as well go in person, because people at the meridian don't do phones. Buyer beware.

Comfortable, Safe, and Homeysubmitted by Kathleen M. - |Recommended: YesThis apartment complex has amazing amenities and is well maintained. The courtyard is really pretty, and the environment is very comfortable to live in.
Affordable wish business staff were approachable, friendly and on the same page on processes.submitted by Emily E. - |Recommended: NoThe quality of the building and apartments are nice for the area and affordable competitive in price compared to other apartment complexes in Arlington Clarendon. I think the amount of change-over in the business department is evident no one seems to be on the same page in regards to building, maintenance, financial, and communication processes which is very frustrating. The staff appears irritable at times when talking with them vs. focusing on coming to a resolution with tenants. On the contrary, the front desk staff in Phase II are very friendly and accommodating, they always have a smile on their face

Don't Do Itsubmitted by Hannah P. - |Recommended: NoDon't do it, it's a large building and staff isn't responsive or flexible to resident needs.

Will Try to Get Money Out of You in Every Way They Cansubmitted by MSC - |Recommended: NoThey scavenge for money in any way they possibly can. For example, if you don't return the parking sticker they give you something they are clearly going to throw away then they will fine you 100. Not to mention, they write that they will fine you 100 in sharpie on the sticker. So everyone who gets in my car sees that written on the back of the sticker sitting on my windshield - very tacky. After the amount of money I pay to live here, I expect WAY better customer service. They are not willing to work with you at all and are incredibly rude. Make sure you read every last word written in your lease because they are very sneaky, and once they have you locked in, they don't care about a thing you say. Lastly, they completely close the pool on Mondays for maintenance. I have never once seen anyone doing any maintenance on the pool on a Monday. They are cheap and don't want to pay staff. I will definitely not be recommending Meridian to my friends who are looking in the area.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to submit a review about our community and for sharing your concerns with us. We strive to provide our residents with the best customer service and are dismayed to hear that has not been your experience. We apologize for any inconvenience the pool closures may cause. Our pool is open for holidays that fall on Mondays, such as Memorial Day and Labor Day, but is closed for maintenance on Mondays to ensure pool clarity and sanitation. Our property manager welcomes the opportunity to speak with you further regarding our pool cleaning schedule and parking policies. Please contact her at 703-522-8700 at your earliest opportunity. We look forward to speaking with you soon and mending this relationship.
Wonderful Experience. This is a great place to live post-graduationsubmitted by Cara H. - |Recommended: YesThe Meridian is very comfortable. Everything is basically at your fingertips. The fact that the gym is just downstairs, and the metro being a block away, is wonderful. The leasing office is very responsive to any problems that may arise, and the maintenance team delivers within 2 business days. I very highly recommend this property.
The perfect luxury accommodation for busy peoplesubmitted by Johanna W. - |Recommended: YesI really enjoy living here, everything is well planned and kept. My apt is spacious and light, and has everything I need within arm's reach. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, as is the outdoor swimming pool and indoor gym. It is a nice and quite neighborhood but very near DC, Georgetown and Clarendon for restaurants and bars.
Pay a lot for mediocre experience submitted by Ashley O. - |Recommended: NoThe finishes are great and having concierge service are an added bonus but don't even try getting any help from maintenance or the leasing office. I have put in several work orders for a leaking window and by leaking I mean cups of water pouring through my window in heavy rain storms and all have gone unanswered. Every time I have talked to the leasing office I get a completely different answer to my question than the previous time. We can hear the neighbors and people as they get off the elevator down the hall and the windows are so poorly insulated my blinds move because of the draft. And in return you have freezing winters and unbearable heat in the summer. You definitely pay for the luxury of this apartment complex with little added bonuses.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to review our community. We take your concerns very seriously and want to sincerely apologize that our maintenance team did not meet or exceed your expectations. Our leasing office has put in another request to have our maintenance team further inspect the window in your apartment. We thank you for your continued patience while we work on a resolution. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact our property manager at 703-522-8700 should you need further information.
