We love the apartment and the location is great. Management is courteous but will not negotiate if you have a problem. We had a one bedroom and found out we were having a baby. Management would not budge on letting us… Full Review ▶

Being in the military, I've lived in what feels like a million different apartments. This is BY FAR the best I've ever seen. It's very new, clean, and quiet...at night. There is a LOT of construction going on on both sides… Full Review ▶

I chose this property after taking a tour and comparing to other properties all over the dc area. If you're moving here, avoid any property with the word "commons" in it, it means "ghetto" in NVA apartment-speak. Also, I personally avoid… Full Review ▶

I'm impressed with the helpfulness of all staff here, love the location fronting the park and green space. New place, minimal repairs but those are usually done within the hour. Even with lots of neighbors, my apartment is quiet. I like… Full Review ▶

We've lived here a year & a half. We moved from a newer apartment in Alexandria that turned out to be a disaster.

We like the "no pet" policy -- we're not antipet, just anti-pet owner who won't clean up after fido… Full Review ▶

The staff at the place has no compassion for people. They are all money hungry and should be ashamed. The management staff is ignorant and should take some classes on customer service and people management. They have no idea what it… Full Review ▶

-wonderful living--the apartment was immaculate when I moved in and still feels brand new, the public areas are kept up… Full Review ▶

I lived here since it opened. They have a new girl in the office and when I went in there she did not want to help me. She was on the phone or on the computer and did not pay much… Full Review ▶

The office staff were the worst, the Manager was the most difficult person to deal with.
The Carlyle is a nice place to live, but expensive!!!!!!! Full Review ▶

I have lived at the Meridian at Carlyle since the building opened(three years). It has the best location in Alexandria. The metro station is two blocks away and is a pleasant walk. What I like is the fact that a grocery… Full Review ▶

I lived here for 2 years. I think the staffs are rude and have attitudes. One time, I had a car accident and I rented another car for 2 weeks. I told the lease officer that I would need a parking… Full Review ▶

I´ve enjoyed my 20 months at the Meridian. Good responsive friendly staff. Nice building / amenities. Good apartment designs. Only two drawbacks:
1. Lots of construction going on -- I´m glad I don´t work a swing or night shift!
2. No… Full Review ▶
