Rated 4 out of 5 by Loyaltospg2 Needs staff improvement
Evrything about this hotel was wonderful except 2 encounters with the staff:
1. I lef the room early morning and expected to come back at 4:00 PM to take a nap the continue the day. I was surprised that the room was not cleaned or towel changed. The staff came at 4:15 PM to do so which was too late for me and I declined.
1. I requested the 500 starwood points at check out as the hotel policy for not having the room clearned. The front desk person who checked me out said he will do that but it did not happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sportsfan1 Decent Hotel
The hotel was decent. I had a few issues with the check in; but everything was taken care of. I loved the deep soaking tub. I'm used to a coffee machine being in my room, so I missed that feature to the room. The hotel does offers free coffee in the morning, in the lobby. I also liked that there was a dvd player in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KH1179 Superb SPG recognition
My wife and I are buying our first home, so in an attempt to save a few dollars this year we decided on a "staycation" to celebrate July 4th and my wife's 30th birthday. Jon (GM), Doug (Foot and Beverage Manager) and their entire staff were relentless in their efforts to make this as special as possible. Not only did we get an extremely generous upgrade to recognize my SPG Platinum, they coordinated with me beforehand to print out framed photos of us to set up across the room to make it feel like home and also delivered Champagne and strawberries and her hand wrapped gift on the morning of her birthday. I couldn't provide a better recommendation for a Starwood staff and hotel. I'm sure it's even more special for out of town folks. Stay here...avoid downtown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Atem Georgetown Campus Visit and exploration
My girls and I were visiting the Georgetown University and George Washington Universities and planned to stay the night in Arlington, given that it was one of the closest hotels in the area with breathing taking views of the city. The hotel was very unique in it's style and ambiance. Elavator music (Bossa Nova) puts one in a mood to relax-nice! The staff at the front desk were attentive upgraded to a double queen room with request. even nicer. The room was very neat and comfortable with a beautiful view of Potomac River and Georgetown, our destination for the trip. Amuse restuarant appeared very pleasant. with outdoor deck chairs and comfy couch for easy summer days or evening relaxing (Did not get a chance to experience this, though wish I had). Arrived for breakfast on a not particularly busy period, 9:30am, had to ask staff for menu and call staff to place order. They took a while to attend to us. Called their attention to this and all staff then made up for this profusely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ADH45 First Stay at LeMeridien Arlington
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. However, there were several issues/concerns. We stayed in the Classic King room. First of all, the room was smaller than expected. There were several things that were missing or broken. There was a missing/broken towel rack in the bathroom. The make-up mirror light didn't work. One of the over the bed lamps was missing and the other did not work. The bed was uncomfortable. There wasn't a clock in the room. There was a mix up with my reservation and we were locked out of our room. This issue was resolved quickly.

The hotel, staff and amenities exceeded my expectations. The front desk clerk, Alex, was very helpful and provided a great room with a water view. The proximity to Georgetown and Washington DC was very convenient. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to a friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geosn00p Gem in DC
This hotel far and away exceeded my expectations. I had heard that the hotel that was there before Starwood took over was less than great, so my hopes for the Le Meridien were low. Was I wrong!!!
First, this hotel is a in a great location, just outside DC proper in Rosslyn right next to the Rosslyn metro which makes getting to anywhere in the city pretty easy.
I'm gold and was upgraded to a junior suite. First suite upgrade as a Gold. It was not crowded since it was a weekend which might explain the upgrade.
Room was very clean; the entire hotel looked brand new. Staff was excellent.
I will definitely come back here next time I come to DC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by icantfindonethatworks Very Nice Hotel
I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the Arlington area. Only one block from the Metro Station. The staff bent over backwards to help in any way they could. The only thing we weren't too happy with were the pillows/bedding. But that may be just from sleeping in a different bed all together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hunter101 Couldn't find a complaint if I tried
Everything from check-in till departure went perfectly smooth. Although I used a Suite-Night-Award with this particular stay, I was upgraded to an even larger room than I could have imagined. Very hip property. Didn't try the restaurant. Valet very efficient. Don't hesitate booking this property for business in D.C. due to its Virginia location, literally a few blocks and a bridge or a subway stop or two from all the major sites. Taxi's in D.C. are much cheaper than I've found other major cities to be. I will return to the Le Meridien whenever i'm in the area again.

My daughter had her wedding at Le Meridien Arlington and the experience was amazing. Not only was this boutique hotel conveniently located, but the food, drink and the staff from the planning stage (thank you,Allison and Sandi) to the execution (Edwin and his wonderful, helpful staff) was excellent. The rooms were quiet and the bedding amazing. I wanted to take home the pillow--better than mine at home. I also got rave reviews for the food and entire exprience from the guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Persimmons Fantastic retreat next to DC
I booked two rooms for Friday-Monday and used my suite awards to upgrade the rooms. The suites at this hotel are fantastic, quiet, clean and [our room] had a great view overlooking the river. The bathroom is so spacious that my family had no problems moving around at the same time. I was also impressed by the spacious tub that is sized similar to your average hot tub.
What impressed me even more was the quality of customer service. When I first checked in, I asked to change rooms a few times due to my family's preferences. Alex at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. He recognized my family and me throughout the stay and was always friendly to us and provided assistance as needed. The valet is also very convenient and worth it. DC is right across the bridge and the close proximity of the hotel allowed us to return periodically to rest. I would definitely recommend this hotel for its great rooms and staff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cphannegan Odd & Depressing
While the hotel facility is perfectly fine, I found the fellow guests and overall environment to be staid and boring. The location is very soulless with pretty much nothing around but office buildings. The room service breakfast was pitiful: a dry blueberry muffin, plain yogurt and chucks of melon and pineapple -- hardly appealing and not as described in menu.Would not return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by energywhiz Much Improved Since February
Had a stay in February and experienced some hiccups, however this stay was flawless.
Check-in was smooth. Chose continental breakfast as my amenity, when I asked what the upcharge would be for a full breakfast, the person checking me in just handed me a coupon for a free full breakfast!
Upgraded to a large room with a magnificent view of Georgetown U., the National Cathedral and the Potomac River. Room was spotless, Wi-Fi was strong and fast. Like this room much better than the corner room I had received previously, and given the hotel was fully booked and this stay was a reward stay, I wasn't expecting anything.
When I left for my event I was offered a cab or black car service, but didn't need it as I was taking the METRO (1 block away).
Came back to hotel and had a snack at Amuse. Even though it was 9pm it was bustling with a mix of locals and hotel guests.
Sadly, had to leave early for work so didn't get a chance to try the breakfast after all!
Check-out was smooth. Complimentary coffee was excellent and quite welcomed by me given the early hour.

We appeared at 1 am after a long, arduous trip from upstate NY because of a family emergency. I used my ipad to locate pet-friendly hotels in Arlington, VA or Crystal City and we went lobby to lobby looking for a room. By 1:30 am we were very tired as I walked into the lobby of this hotel in Arlington, VA. They could not have been more gracious and helpful. At that time of night, this was greatly appreciated. We will be sure to pass this story along to our friends and acquantances. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Julia53 Greaat hotel, horrible room service meal
The hotel is well located, with easy access to the western DC neighborhoods. Accomodations were excellent. The room service menu was very limited. A dinner order had several errors and substitutions. The pea soup had long been refridgerated and was cold, congealed, and cement like. The salad was poorly made. Zucchini fritters were uncooked and inedible. Our dessert order was swapped for brownies that were stale. I am a frequent in-room diner at Starwood properties. This was one of the worst meals I have ever had and inconsistent with the rest of the excellent stay. A charge of over $90 was offensive given the poor quality. Beware, use the restaurant.
