|Recommended: YesAmenities — I love having the amenity feature of the gym. However, it is frustrating that there is one treadmill that has been out of use for several months. There is also not a lot of dumbbell weight options - like 10lbs for example. The water bottle feature for the water fountain is also not in use. I love using the gym and understand that amenity is included in the price of rent. Knowing that it would be nice to have the full use of the gym with weight and cardio options.

|Recommended: NoPackage availability — Hello, I have waited to submit this review to see how my experience changes with package check in time. However, I have lived in many buildings where it takes maybe an hour or two max for my package to be checked in by concierge. After a month of living here I have never had a package checked In, in a timely manager. Today, I had a package delivered around 10am and it was not checked in until 10pm. I even went down to ask around 4pm and the concierge asked me to come back in a few hours. 12 hours to receive a package is just unacceptable and I hope this changes.

|Recommended: YesI love it — Great value. Great front desk staff. Valerie and George make the building such a friendly environment. This apartment exceeded my expectations especially for the price. I was in an unrenovated unit and it was still super nice

|Recommended: YesThe space is great, but lots of renovation noise — The apartment itself is incredible, and the location is absolutely superb. However, they have been renovating every few days for the past month and have no end in sight. Whenever there is renovation going on you can hear them drilling out the previous flooring and it is LOUD. I work from home and have to make alternate arrangements on those days, which is incredibly frustrating. Otherwise, it's one of the best places to live in DC.
Edwin, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about Meridian at Gallery. We appreciate your candid comments. We understand that the renovation noise can be frustrating and we do try to mitigate the disruption as much as we can. Please feel free to reach out if there is anything else that we can do for you. Regards- Karen K
|Recommended: YesWe should be able to use our amenities until later than 10 pm — I think we should be able to use our amenities later. It makes no sense to pay for them if we as renters have time restrictions that adjust only to one particular lifestyle. I also don´t understand why we should pay a fine pay to open the apartment if we lose our keys. Thank you
Giuliana, thank you for taking the time to review Meridian at Gallery Place. We apologize that certain aspects of your experience so far are not up to your expectations.

|Recommended: NoFIX THE PORTAL — This portal is SHOCKING. Some links point to blank pages. It is totally incoherent. The messages' system is full of nonsense about food trucks Prioritize rent, utilities, and work orders. Nothing is itemized, it is a total black hole of non-information,

Someone from our team will be reaching out to discuss your concerns in more detail and to hear what kinds of things you'd like to see in the portal. We want to ensure you are in the right portal as there was recently a switch after the property migrated software. We look forward to connecting with you soon! - Tiana G.
|Recommended: NoWouldn't Recommend — Don't live here. The management is rude and they overcharge for their parking services. A 195 pass will get you only a compact spot and they're cramped. There's plenty of other spaces in the building that they charge extra for on top of the 195 if you actually want space. Construction noises every other week that are disruptive.
Natalie, thank you for sharing your candid thoughts on Meridian at Gallery Place. We apologize that you have experienced some difficulty with the onsite parking. We know that in any city, there are some challenges with parking and compact spaces. Our parking is a flat fee of $195, and that gets you access to parking on any level of our garage for no upcharge. If you are looking for less surrounding vehicles and bigger spaces, we suggest you search on the P2 and P3 levels. We hope this helps. If there are any items you'd like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to reach out to the leasing office. - Tiana G.
|Recommended: YesNo big issues and responsive staff — We had just one maintenance issue in the first month but the staff were quick to respond and helpful. It is still early in the lease, but overall we have had no huge issues. Living at the end of a hall near multiple other apartment doors there is sometimes an issue with noise from the hallway as doors slam quite loudly, but the only noise is from the hallway and we cannot hear neighbor noise otherwise. The package concierge can take relatively long to be able to pick up a package when it arrives which is an inconvenience sometimes.
Melanie, thank you for the 5-star rating and for sharing your experience with Meridian at Gallery Place thus far! If noise levels ever exceed the "norm" please do not hesitate to reach out to the leasing staff. We look forward to seeing you around the community for a long time to come! -Tiana G.

|Recommended: NoNot as great as when I visited — I am not loving it as much as I thought. The hall ways are not vacuumed as frequently as I would like. There is construction going on everyday it seems. It is so loud and difficult to work from home. In the parking lot people take up two parking spaces. I do not think anyone monitors the parking situation as I have seen cars parked down there without a permit or a sticker. There is a funny smell when I first walk into my apartment. It was here the first day I moved in and it has not gone away. I have sprayed lysol, used an air purifier, cleaned the floors. It might be in the wall. George is the only friendly person at the front desk. Others down there are not very friendly or helpful. I'm generally disappointed.
Monica, thank you for taking the time to share your candid thoughts on Meridian at Gallery Place. We are disappointed to hear that you are not as satisfied with your home as you, and we, had hoped. We apologize for the renovation-related noises and the inconvenience this causes. We send out a weekly notice that includes a schedule a month in advance, which we hope helps prepare residents for what to expect with the renovations. We also apologize that the hallways do not meet your expectations, and we will be working closely with our cleaning company as well as our renovation team to put more of an emphasis on the carpets at the end of each day. We apologize that you are experiencing a smell. Please submit a work order regarding the smell so our team can address it if that step hasn't been taken already. If they haven't already, someone from our team will be reaching out to you to discuss your challenges in more detail. We look forward to connecting with you soon. - Tiana G.
