I booked a Classic room online, which they upgraded to an Executive King suite.
The property is downtown Rosslyn, near Deloitte, for those who knows that landmark. It was a ghost town in the time of coronovirus.
The lobby is up the elevator on what I believe is the fourth floor.
The common areas, while small, are very nice. I commented that I forgot how nice this property was, and it is. It is across the Key bridge from Georgetown, and is often reasonably priced.
I attempted an early check-in to catch a conference call, but the upgraded room wasn’t ready. I elected to take the call in the business center, as the property was nearly vacant and I felt relatively assured of privacy.
The room was an executive suite, or, as I call them, not a suite. That is, there is no separation of bedroom from living area.
The room contained an exercise bike, which I used on a couple of calls. I am contemplating getting one for the office.
Food and beverage
Nope. As the frontdesk clerk told me, Le Meridien’s tend not to have club rooms. I missed the limited restaurant and bar service.
Friendly, when interaction was necessary, which was infrequent.

The Chaedrol Hotel Guide does not provide “balanced” reviews of stays, but rather our reviewers’ experiences at properties. Star ratings are based on price, so that a luxury or budget hotel may both receive either no or five stars, and factor in extenuating circumstances. Your actual experience may vary.
