|Recommended: YesVery nice for a Georgetown Dorm. — I think it would be fair to say that we were not aware how very many students live and party here. While that isn’t a problem for others, it isn’t our level of energy.

|Recommended: YesGreat location in downtown DC and great staff. Downsides include too few community events, can't access the stairs when walking up from the lobby, and there is a homeless building and low income property on 2 of the 4 sides of the building. — I would recommend meridian at gallery playce if they are looking solely based on location in DC. I wish there would be more community activities and the community grills were better maintained for the price of rent.
Hi Patrick, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share your concerns with us. We appreciate your feedback as we are always looking for ways to improve our community. We are happy to hear that you would recommend our property and that overall you enjoy living here. One of our goals for the upcoming year is to host more community events so that we can get to know our residents better. In regard to the stairs, you can exit the building through that stairwell in case of emergency, however you will not be able to re-enter through that same door for security purposes. We hope this helps clarify any confusion and we look forward to seeing you at future events. If you would like to discuss your concerns further, please reach out to our team directly at 202-326-0000. Sincerely, Ashleigh N.
|Recommended: YesIt's fine — It's fine, convenient if young, a lot of unreasonable costs if wanting to change lease and parking is obscenely expensive and shouldn't be. Overall, comfortable but costs unreasonable
Hi Saher, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns and allowing us the opportunity to respond. We understand the frustration that comes with additional cost for a lease change, however we are happy to offer a less expensive alternative with minimal fees compared to a lease break. In regard to parking fees, we have found that our fees are in line with other communities in the area. We appreciate your feedback as we are always looking for ways to improve our community. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we can be of more service. Sincerely, Ashleigh N.
|Recommended: NoOlder More Affordable Building — Lights constantly going out, toilet and dryer problems all within the first 6 months of living here. Constantly garbage in the hallway. My floor reeks of weed every day. Stains on the carpet. DPnt let the shiny new lobby fool you.

|Recommended: YesGreat property in a great location - Leasing Office communication and follow-up is poor — They only seem to work with tenants well when it's face-to-face - have never received replies to emails or messages submitted via this portal. It's frustrating but I understand they were under-staffed. Now that they are better staffed up hopefully this will change.

|Recommended: NoHorrible. — Awful. Would not recommend. The leasing office is a pain to deal with rude in-person over phone, unresponsive despite multiple follow-ups.

|Recommended: NoWould Not Recommend — I hate writing these - but saw it in my portal to fill it out so i did. I am so disappointed in the experience I have had here. We have had consistent HVAC issues, among others, but HVAC being most annoying, throughout our entire lease. On several occasions I have asked to speak to the Property Manager and have not heard back from anyone. Our heat did not work all winter leaving the sunroom absolutely freezing during those cold months and then whatever they did to fix it caused our unit to not properly heat or cool itself at all making it constantly pump on full blast sending our bills through the roof. In terms of the ranking criteria - parking, noise and grounds are fine. Maintenance does complete tickets in a timely manner but never correct the issue on the first try and you never get an explanation as to why things keep going wrong. The staff do not know what is going on and are were not customer service oriented. Construction gets a two because the actual building is fine and the location is great but our heat and AC never functioned properly throughout our 13 month lease and the office staff was not helpful to try and fix it. I will say that the concierge is awesome and is a bonus to the property.

|Recommended: YesI think its good — Only complaint is the tight parking space. There are a sufficient number of spaces, but they are rather small. Its a small complaint
|Recommended: YesNice property with a great location and excellent staff — great place to live location wise and the apartments are nice
Hi Dave, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience! We are so happy to hear that you enjoy calling Meridian at Gallery Place home! Sincerely, Ashleigh N.
|Recommended: NoOverrated — The level of incompetency in the leasing office deserves an award.
Hi Brianna, We apologize for the delay in the response, but wanted to follow up to see if there is anything we can do to mend our relationship. We have several new faces in the leasing office and are really trying to improve our resident relationships. Our property manager is going to call you and touch base to see if there is anything we can do to be of service. We look forward to speaking with you soon. Take care, Taryn S.

Our team truly values and appreciates your feedback. Please do not hesitate to let us know if we can be of more service. Sincerely, Ashleigh N.
|Recommended: NoPoorly managed and way overpriced — The staff at the Meridian continues to disappoint its residents. The front desk attendant is never there and refuses to retrieve packages or open doors. I recently received five packages that were being held behind the front desk for over a month. Every time I asked for my packages they told me to come back in an hour or, one front desk man in particular, would not even get up from his chair to check. The front office is only open while you are at work. 10 am - 6 pm is helpful to nobody. The leasing office does not answer the phone or return voicemails. Maintenance has completely ignored my work orders before. When my bathroom was flooded it took emergency maintenance several hours to respond to the situation, and by that time my entire bathroom and hallway were flooding causing the need for my carpet to be replaced. The maintenance person removed the padding under my carpet and never returned. I have no padding under the carpet in my hallway and the carpet is in no way affixed to the floor. The leasing office does not respond to any requests. I have requested a parking space and the leasing office has not responded. I submit requests and messages on the residential portal and yet, I have not once gotten a response. Either their technology needs to be updated or their management needs an entirely new team and structure. I will not be renewing my lease or recommending this building to anyone. Highly disappointing for the price I pay to live here.
