I stayed at the Le Meridien Arlington when I returned to D.C. to visit friends in March 2013. Because I am a light sleeper, the hotel was able to accomodate my request for a quieter room facing the back of the hotel. The rooms were modern and clean, yet a bit on the smaller end for a property in Arlington. Service was pretty standard for this newly-minted Starwood property. My only complaints about the hotel are with regards to the common use shampoo/bath amenities in the restroom (in big dispensers) which I found a bit unsanitary. I was also irked with communication issues with housekeeping. The room next to us had requested an additional roll of toilet paper at 5am on a Sunday morning, yet housekeeping mistakenly delivered that roll to my room and woke me up. I made my complaint known to the reception desk, yet the person on call shrugged it off.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay. The hotel does its job well as a jumping pad to all the sights and commercial clusters in D.C. and Northern Virginia. While this hotel wouldn't be my first choice on my next trip (I would opt for another Starwood property), I would return if the quoted rate represented good value for money.
