|Recommended: YesNice apartments, good community — This building has everything you would want in an apartment community- great gym, awesome rooftop deck, large pool area, three large grills, large parking garage if you want to pay for it , etc. Some residents are a little rowdy, but there haven't been any specific incidents that have affected us personally, and we have always been able to enjoy the amenities. Some of the appliances are not great quality, but they do their jobs and maintenance comes quickly 1-2 days if there is a problem. Overall I think this is a good place to live, especially if you work nearby or use 395 to commute.
|Recommended: YesThe property is great but it requires more rules for neighbors since the allowance of having students and inmature renters who treat the place as a college dorm — I have been disappointed lately to see how the property has been renting to students which they tend to don't care about the neighbors and always drinking and being loud on the hallways and leaving garbage on the hallways and breaking lights all the lamps. I have been in this property for more than three years but lately I have been disappointed to see how the renters students or young folks have been allowed to do anything and treat the building as a college dorm.

|Recommended: YesAll around good place to live — The apartment building is very nice, with many amenities including a huge gym , and good parking options. Additionally, the building is right next to a Safeway which makes grocery shopping easy. Also there are two metro stops that are 5-10 minutes away. The main issue I've had is with the noise of the other residents. Since it is a building with a lot of younger people there can be a lot of noise on the weekends and there has been some damage made to one of the elevators. However, this issue is outweighed by the benefits that this building offers.
|Recommended: YesMeridian is ideal for recently graduated young professionals — Everything is great here, except for the constant issues of noise and annoying neighbors. Property is safe, well-kept, stylish, and in the perfect location. Ideal for a first apartment, but not for long-term living.
|Recommended: YesExcellent with one exception — I love living at the Meridian. However, I find that the majority of the time that I go to the front desk of my building II there is no one there. Also, the coffee machines are frequently broken, often both at the same time. These things are fairly minor and my experience has overall been great though I feel that I would likely be more concerned about noise if I didn't live at the very end of my hallway.
Thank you for the five star rating and for taking the time to share your concerns with us. We understand your concerns and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience the broken coffee machine has caused. Our property manager would like to speak with you further regarding your concerns.

|Recommended: YesI love it — It's a very nice, modern looking aesthetic. All appliances are modern and work very well. My particular room is a bit of an odd meaning unconventional layout, but very spacious. My favorite parts are the common spaces though. Lots of nooks all around the building to sit and work. The rooftop garden and pool are really what sold me on the place. And the gym is the second best gym I've ever used, which is saying quite a lot for an apartment complex gym.
|Recommended: YesMeridian is a great community to live. Everyone is very friendly and the amenities are top-notch — Wonderful community to live in DC Beautiful lobby, shared spaces and rooftop lounge pool areas. The apartments have great quality, real wood cabinets and high-end fixtures. One of the best if not the best, we looked for a while price points for a luxury building in DC.
|Recommended: YesGood experience — Great people , good experience , nice staff
|Recommended: YesHappy — Great Apartment
|Recommended: NoApartment Review — This has been the worst experience I have had living in an apartment in numerous different locations throughout the country. I paid for amenities that are always broken including the coffee machine and the firepit. I have had to submit maintanance requests repeatedly due to the low quality of appliances. Most importantly, the noise level is unacceptable. I can hear my neighbors base blasting at all different times during the day. While this is certainly an issue with the level of their music, it appears that it is a bigger issue with the walls. I have spent times at other Meridian complexes and this one is the lowest quality and has the thinest walls.

|Recommended: NoToo Loud, Too Much Like A Dorm — The building is nice however I simply cannot recommend the building to anyone and I will celebrate like it's new year's when my lease ends. Someone manages to wake me up every 10 days or so. I mean the noise occurs between midnight and four AM. No residents seem to know about the quiet hours in the lease they signed- poor communication. I am constantly hearing- music, drunk people in the halls talking, drunk people in the halls on cell phones, other residents having 25 or more drunk people in their apartments. The front of the building is littered with red solo cups, beer cans, beer bottles frequently on the weekends and excessively on holidays. It is not uncommon to see vomit in common spaces, spilled alcohol, cigarette butts strewn about. I would not recommend that a death row inmate live in this building as it would be cruel and unusual punishment. Living here is like living in a Frat House or a college dorm. I have been woken up three separate times in the past ten days for reference. Many calls to the leasing office have yielded no relief. I'm exploring options to leave the facility.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review on Yelp and giving us an opportunity to address your concerns.

It is our goal to maintain a luxury community and we do everything in our power to not let these situations ruin the experience for others. Our property manager will be reaching out to you regarding your review.
|Recommended: YesGood so far. . . — I have been here over a year and things have been well. My only complaint is people who deface the elevators or behave poorly late at night. Also, I had an issue with a neighbor's dog barking incessantly. As far as everything else, it's been a pleasant experience. I've never heard my neighbors while in my actual apartment.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoy calling the Meridian home, and welcome your feedback on ways that we can improve our community.

|Recommended: YesNice building in an increasingly in-demand neighborhood — Pros - new building, fairly large units, plenty of parking available very dog friendly front desk staff are usually very helpful and courteous with some exceptions great gym pool would be great if it were ever available for residents to use see below - a select few residents invite 10s of friends each, meaning that I've never actually used my own pool Cons - frat house tendencies, with plenty of students throwing raucous parties, destroying public spaces, leaving debris and vomiting in common areas property manager has been reactive and very much hands-off on addressing these issues, even as they threaten to alienate other residents. during peak move-in times, front desk is noticeably understaffed - the employees are so busy trying to oversee move-in processes that they are entirely absent from the desk itself, posing inconvenience at best and security risks as worst. maintenance - leasing office - front desk triage is also laughable - I've submitted several service requests, and I've had to micromanage the communications on every single one of them, for fear of people entering my apartment at inappropriate times, etc. Finally - no recycling units on individual floors, which is an enormous pain and honestly leads to people recycling less.
Hi Molly, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and sharing your concerns with us. We want to sincerely apologize for our failure to communicate effectively. We should have done a better job of informing you about lead times for your work orders and then coordinating what time would work best for you to complete the work. We will make the necessary changes in the future to ensure that does not happen again. We want to assure you that we take your concerns very seriously and are working on ways to improve our resident experience from all angles. For next pool season, we anticipate moving towards a pool pass system which would require all residents to present a pool pass and would limit the number of guests allowed. We are also evaluating an automated package system to relieve some of the package delivery congestion from the front desk and make it more convenient for our residents to retrieve their packages. Our property manager would welcome the opportunity to speak with you further, please feel free to contact him at 202-962-0010. Sincerely, Taryn S.
|Recommended: YesGreat property some immature residents — Overall, we are very happy with the apartment, maintenance has been great so far, but we thankfully haven't had major issues. We do sense that some residents get a little out of hand during partying hours. We see damages ex 1 elevator has large scratch marks after an evening of fun, when people spill things, they don't clean them up . The new rules for the roof deck have improved how crowded the space is and are much appreciated. One major complaint for now is the dog that lives above us CONSTANTLY is barking. For example today, the dog has been barking since at least 8 am more or less nonstop . As someone who works from home, this is quite annoying for so many hours. Lastly, the packaging system could be improved. The front desk attendants spend hours literally each day logging in packages and are unavailable to help residents during this time. Only having one person during this time is not a great option. I realize its not the attendants fault. In other luxury buildings I have lived in, the package room was separate with a full time attendant and the doorman front desk people were full time as well. Just a possible recommendation way to improve.
