Excellent Apartments|Recommended: YesThe apartments are much bigger and nicer than others in the neighborhood, and the amenities are better. Especially the gym and lobby area. Proximity to grocery store is unbeatable less than a block and easy access to Bikeshare and metro. You have to use your key fob to use the elevator which is a bit cumbersome, though I suppose a good safety feature.

Possible safety breach|Recommended: YesRe keys Meridian key FOBs are issued on a ring with a blue and white cylindrical charm that bears the Meridian logo. If lost, this could allow anyone access to the building, the garage being especially dangerous. Further, many plots of land between sidewalk and curb are planted thickly with decorative grass These areas provide ideal refuge for rats and should be replanted accordingly. I've heard and seen rats there. They do not need help to flourish.
Hi PS Merican, Thank you for your review and for sharing your concerns with us. The key fobs bear our logo but does not feature our address nor personal information. If one was turned in we would require an id to ensure proper ownership. We routinely monitor our landscaping for pest and treat accordingly. If you have additional concerns, please reach out to our property manager directly at 202-962-0010. Sincerely, Taryn S.
Nice modern property but not cost effective place to live.|Recommended: YesThe Meridian at Mt. Vernon Triangle is overall a nice place to live. It is a fairly new building with a contemporary design. The units are of high quality and some of them have balconies. The amenities are great and there is ample underground parking. Its location to downtown and public transit is a big advantage. There are some drawbacks, though. Some of the units are quite expensive and residents must pay an additional fee for parking. Residents must also pay to book the community lounge and get additional keys.
Wonderful Apartment |Recommended: YesLiving here is stress free and convenient.
It's a Pleasure to Live at Meridian Mount Vernon|Recommended: YesGreat location, helpful staff great amenities. The building is also very pet friendly. Great choice for young professionals.
Great Place to Live Overall|Recommended: YesI like the looks and feel of Meridian Mt Vernon. I love the maintenance team they are very kind, respectful, hard-working people . The front desk staff are also approachable and helpful overall. The disadvantage of living at Meridian and this applies to all Meridians I have visited is the lack of noise-cancelling insulation between apartments and even through the door to the hallways. I've noticed that all Meridians have very thin walls, which affects what I or my neighbors can do in their own living space. I'm a singer and often have to practice or record scratch vocals at home. At my last apartment, I couldn't hear a sounds from my neighbors and nor they from me each unit was essentially its own noise-insulating bubble . This was perfect for practicing. Now, I can't do that at the Meridian without fear of disturbing my neighbors. I wouldn't say Meridian walls block out much noise at all I often hear my neighbors showering, talking in the living room, etc. .

Best Place to Live|Recommended: YesI have lived in DC for ten years and the Meridian at Mount Vernon Triangle has been the best place I have called home.
Property is excellent. However need stricter review of new applicants.|Recommended: YesYes
Excellent facilities|Recommended: YesI would say, that is feels like home but with a great atmosphere. The outdoors are great, including the rooftop. The location is very convenient and feels like you are in the city without the hectic traffic and congestion of other DC areas.
Its living with a bunch of spoiled kids|Recommended: NoHUGE parties and no one cares about noise, smoking, waking neighbors, rudeness at pool and upper deck, picking up dog waste...... I feel like my rights and lease conditions are being broken by the apartment association.

Great Appartments, Great Management Team|Recommended: YesAfter 2 years it was hard to leave Meridian MVT The only reason I left is because I changed countries . The appartments are great with great size and distributions. The management team was always very helpful, if for any reason I go back to DC I will go back to meridian MVT.
Love the building and the neighborhood |Recommended: YesMy fiancee and I have had a wonderful experience living here. It is just steps away from the heart of DC and the apartment is in such mint condition because the building is so new
Too expensive, poor management. |Recommended: NoMeridian MVT made the extraordinarily simple and commonplace process of having a subletter for a few months into an expensive and time-consuming headache. I paid a $150 processing fee and gave them the necessary paperwork 2 weeks before I was going to leave town and told them my schedule, they assured me it would be done in 2 business days and that they would call me when it was ready. Having waited a full week, I returned to the leasing office and the folks there didn't seem to have any idea what I was talking about. Once I waited for them to locate the paperwork, they said it would definitely be done the next day, possibly that afternoon. They said they would call me. Once again, no call. I check back the next day and they finally tell me it's ready, my roommate and I sign the form, and I'm told everything is done. A week later, now that I'm on the other side of the country, they email me to say that they made a typographical error on the date of the form, so we need to sign it again. Without apology or explanation, they told me that I had to get the new paperwork notarized and mail it to my roommate at my own expense. Otherwise, they threatened to prevent my subletter (who had already paid me and was moving in in 2 days) from picking up her key and moving in. Considering that this was a mistake that Meridian MVT made, and that I paid them $150 to complete their end of this process, this seems like offensively bad customer service and the epitome of unethical business practices. The folks in the leasing office could take a lesson in customer service from any restaurant waiter: a small courtesy (such as offering to reimburse me for the notary and postage) can go a long way towards building customer goodwill. Based on this experience, I cannot recommend living in this building. There are two ongoing major construction projects on each side of the building, and the third side overlooks New York Ave, one of the busiest commuter corridors on D.C., right next to a freeway onramp. There are innumerable homeless persons on the block. There are at least 4 other very nice apartment buildings in the immediate vicinity. In short, the awful customer service, neighborhood nuisances, and intolerable noise do not justify the inordinately high rent that Meridian MVT charges.
Easy Peasy|Recommended: YesLiving at Meridian at Mt. Vernon Triangle is easy! Getting coffee is easy. Picking up packages is easy. Parking is easy. All of the neighbors are nice and I love all of canine residents!
