Great location, nice apartments, great staff.|Recommended: YesGreat location for metro and vehicle access. Metro side of complex can be noisy, so ensure that is known and negotiated with price. You do get use to it like all other noise. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Maintenance very responsive and have fixed every concern no matter how big or little. Gym is solid and nice pool if you like that kind of thing. The monthly socials are fun.
Comfortable place to live.|Recommended: YesQuiet - except for the metro. Pleasant. Clean. Not in walking distance to a full grocery store.

Very Nice, People are pleasant. Good Atmosphere|Recommended: YesI would say, Im still here. I am hoping in the future there may be roll in showers for the people in wheelchairs as well as adjustable height cabinets A dire need to maintain independence Last but not least. Accessible gym equipment. EX a seat adjustable stationary bike for a wheel chair user and and accessible stationary erg machine for a person who does not use their legs. The sensor light in the elevator is too high for a wheelchair person. Door closes and u can't reach to wave your arm at the red light. Just a few things the ADA does not require but is needed by a wheelchair user

With the insight you have provided, we were able to reach out to our elevator company and make an adjustment to the length of time residents have while entering the elevator.

Thank you for your continued residency and feel free to reach out to our property manager with any other questions or concerns. Sincerely, Taryn S.
First class apartment -- highly recommend |Recommended: YesI highly recommend Meridian at Eisenhower Station. The leasing office, the maintenance team, the Concierge, everyone...all top notch. I rented sight unseen and Meridian far exceeded my expectations. The location is quiet...never hear my neighbors or much outside noise. Walking distance to plenty of amenities. The apartments are really nice and spacious. The units on the front offer nice views of the Potomac River. It's also nice to be so close to the Metro 2-minute walk . Or a one minute sprint.
Excellent and Recommended|Recommended: YesI truly enjoyed living at the Meridian at Eisenhower Station. Although there were some maintenance issues that came up throughout my stay, the maintenance team responded immediately and all of the issues were handled within the hour. A few of my favorite things about the community would be the gym, staff, location, and mail process. Overall, the quality of fixtures and building material are high. One negative thing I would say would about the apartment complex would be the noise. I live right near the courtyard, which is parallel to the metro. Although I can hear the metro, I have gotten use to it and it does not bother me anymore.
Good Location Price|Recommended: YesI was looking to downsize and find an apartment closer to work. This met all my needs with a very reasonable price for location. Staff and tenants are very friendly and the amenities are great. If your looking for easy access to the metro in a nice area give this place a look
A great place to call home in Alexandria.|Recommended: YesThe combination of location, amenities and price all add up to great value.
I love the Meridian Eisenhower |Recommended: YesI would tell them it's the best place to live. Staff is fabulous and they go out of their way to ensure your happiness. Move here
Out of 24 apartments I chose this one|Recommended: YesIn moving to the area I visited 24 apartment buildings 6 in Silver Spring, MD the rest mostly in Arlington Alexandria . Given a lot of time to create metrics and make a decision as I had a lot of flexibility in transitioning to a new DC office from Pennsylvania I've been living here for 3 months and would struggle to be happier. I can only provide my experience, so some of the information may be different depending on when you read this. Rent It's pricy, but compares favorably to similar options considering amenities etc... on a ft basis. Depending on your move-in dates and unit availability you may be able to find a good deal. For me, the ft here was 14 lower than any other similar option, and 32 lower than the average property I looked at. I will say that the apartment finishes were definitely on the lower end by comparison, but they are still nice and certainly nice enough to justify not paying 15-30 more. I was given an estimate of a 3-5 annual rent increase which also seemed to be typical for the area for the properties that were able to give me that information. Fees As far as fees, including application fees, amenities fees, security deposits, and move-in fees Meridian is definitely on the cheaper end. There was no amenity fee or security deposit required, and the move-in fee was applied toward my first month's rent as part of some kind of special. So all together I incurred a 50 application fee moving in the standard in the area seems to be 35- 50, and is sometimes waived if you sign a lease within 24-48 hours of touring . Parking Parking is available for 75 month in the garage 50- 100 is what I found to be typical for this area . Between the levels reserved for residents all but the entry-level I've never had an issue finding a spot. The gate garage opener is annoying and inconvenient, but it works. Unit For reference I have a 1BR with den and sunroom 943 ft . It's carpeting throughout except bathroom kitchen of course . Kitchen For me, this is one of the biggest drawbacks. The kitchen is on the smaller side, but space is a premium in general so I get it. I like to cook a lot and it's tough to do so in an efficient way in the tight space. The cabinetry is fine, the oven is electric which is unfortunately pretty standard in properties I looked . At one point I had an issue with my oven --I submitted a work order online and my oven was replaced with a new one within 24 hours. Living Room Bedroom Bathroom Den All of these spaces are fine. There's a full size washer dryer in the bathroom. Design-wise I think many light switches are in dumb places, but they mostly work. The thermostat is not programmable which is annoying, so you need to remember to change it before leaving if you want to save money. Gym If you like to lift you're going to have a join an actual gym. There are a few treadmills, a rowing machine, and maybe a bike and elliptical or two for cardio. The only free weights are dumbbells up to 50 , so even as a relatively small guy it's not enough for chest, legs, or back. They have a few assistance work machines including a lat pull down seated row station, a cable station, press machine, leg curl machine, and a few others. Again, if you want to do deadlifts, squats, and barbell presses you're going to have to join a gym living in most places. A few I visited had smith machines which would be nice in comparison no smith machine, but obviously it'd be nicer to have a squat rack or cage which I think I only had seen at 1 24 places . Other Amenities There's a club room on the 25th floor no true rooftop deck with a pool table, television and sitting areas. I haven't spent much time there, but it seems fine. There's a 4th floor courtyard area with newly added grills. There is also a pool on one of the lower roofs 12th floor , it's shallow on the order of 4' , but that's typical for apartment pools in properties I've seen. They also have a dry-cleaning service in the building. Cable Internet Comcast is your only option, which sucks because Comcast is the absolute worst. This isn't Meridian's fault though as it's an area-wide monopoly thing, but I hope this changes in the future. Utilities So far 95 Electric I keep thermostat 75-78 in summer, so I think this is very high and a possible HVAC issue , 22 Water, 22 Gas. Concierge Nothing but great for me. Always friendly, very helpful and available more hours than most other places for package pick up. Location You are a 2 minute or so walk to the metro. Whole foods is in walking distance, but it's a little bit of hike if you're carrying anything heavy. There's a Giant that's a short drive away as well. You're also in walking distance to Old Town which is great and has tons of restaurant options, but it's definitely a walk. There's a capital bikeshare right in front of the building if you want to get there a little quicker and don't feel like driving.

Meridian Fan|Recommended: YesI have rented at this building for seven years and I cannot say enough great things about the staff, the accommodations, or the service Everything about the Meridian Eisenhower is quality. Every time I come home, I'm greeted as though I'm family - and I feel the same about them. Rent a home here - you won't regret it

No Complaints|Recommended: YesEverything is as it should be. Clean, orderly, and quiet.
I love this property |Recommended: YesI would tell folks looking for a new apartment home that the building is wonderfully located close to Alexandria, excellently staffed with professional employees and very fun to live in. The noise within the building is minimal - I barely ever hear my neighbors. It is located close to a metro, so I have some noise from that but it doesn't bother me at all. If you don't like metro noise, ask for an apartment on the non-metro side of the building. All in all, I am very happy living here.
