Le Meridien was a prime location for the couple and the guests. It was central to getting into DC, Georgetown and Metro friendly to and from the airport (DCA). The venue was spacious enough for 120 guests and the terrace outside of the restaurant where the reception was held provided a easy transition between ceremony and reception. The view of the Potomac River and Georgetown provided an amazing background to our wedding ceremony. One draw back is the noise from the traffic and planes landing at the airport but it was not distracting but also expected as we knew we were in the city. So we ensured musicians and wedding officiant was amplified.

The staff was friendly and very professional whenever we met and communicated with us. Allison, the conference services manager, was delightful to work with and she was reliable through out the wedding planning process. The hotel was very organized in ensuring weddings coordinations at the venue were flawless.

The hotel went above and beyond for us several times when they did not need to. They continued to open more rooms for guests and were able to ensure guests were treated as hotel guests as well. The tasting was very professional, where the executive chef fully explained each course and demonstrated how he will try to keep the meals kosher. Furthermore, the bride and her mother dined at the restaurant for a spontaneous lunch, the Chef immediately recognized the bride and provided a complimentary appetizer.

At the end of the wedding reception, when we returned to the bridal suite Allison coordinated to have a bottle of champagne and a plate of fruit waiting for us. On top of that, we allowed the hotel manager to take pictures of the decorated ceremony and reception. He surprised us and provided a framed 8x11 photo from the wedding ceremony, as well as a 4x6 photo magnet! This absolutely overwhelmed us and we could not be more satisfied and appreciative of their level of professionalism and hospitality.

From the initial visit with Allison through our checkout on Sunday after the wedding weekend brunch, the service was 5 stars. Amazing food, courteous wait staff, terrific rooms and room service. If a glitch happened or a guest needed something, the staff sorted it out quickly and efficiently. We will definitely recommend Le Meridien Arlington to anyone for their special event.

My husband and I have over 70 combined years in association management and meeting planning. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service we received at Le Meridien in Roslyn, Va. for our daughter's wedding. The staff was there for us from beginning to end never making promises that they didn't keep. Execution was flawless. Everything was beautiful. Our daughter was thrilled with her day. We have since recommended your hotel as a wedding venue to others.

Le Meridien was by far the best aspect of our wedding!! The atmosphere, the food, the staff...everything was perfection. If I could have my wedding again and again I would pick this hotel every single time. It was absolute perfection. And all my guests felt the exact same way. Hands down this should be your top choice!

We used Le Meridien as the lodging/meeting place for our friends and family for our wedding. They were by far the most accommodating of all the hotels I contacted for wedding groups. They also gave the best rate of any surrounding hotel (even the local 2 star hotels!). Our wedding guests and family were extremely satisfied with their stays there. Would thoroughly recommend.

Also, we didn't use any of their space for our wedding, but they do have a really nice view of Georgetown, and they are as close to the monuments and national mall as you can get.

We stayed at this hotel for 9 nights because it was close to the venue of our daughter's wedding at the Top of the Town in Rosslyn, Arlington. I cannot say enough good things about this property. It has a very upmarket feel and offers an extremely high level of service at reasonable prices for the area. Prices are especially good on weekends. The hotel is right on the Potomac River beside the Key Bridge which runs over the river to Georgetown. The river view rooms have fantastic vistas. Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima memorial are nearby. Their is also an underground station not far away. The bus from NY to Washington also stops right opposite the Hotel. Most of our out of town guests (about 30 rooms) booked into the hotel. They gave everyone a great deal. My wife and I were upgraded to a very large suite and our daughter got a good deal on the bridal suite. The staff just couldn't do enough for us. I would especially recomend this hotel for a function along with the wedding venue at the Top of The Town, which has unbelievable views of DC. The Hotel is not in DC itself. Rosslyn is more of a business area during the week, but Georgetown is just 15 minutes walk over the Key Bridge and you're right in the thick of it.

Le Meridien offered a wonderful winter package for my wedding. Sandy was helpful in answering all of my questions and Allison went out of her way to make sure things would go the way we wanted. Everything was set up beautifully and the reception ran flawlessly on the day of the wedding. The wait staff were amazing, the food was incredible, and service flowed smoothly. I highly recommend Le Meridien for a wedding in the DC area.

I can't say enough good things about the Le Meridien. We had our wedding reception there on Sept 15 and it was AMAZING! We worked with Sandy for an entire year and she could not have been any more helpful and flexible.

We had our reception in the Amuse restaurant and had about 80 people- the lay out was perfect...the space itself is not only modern, but very warm and sophisticated. We had long dark wood tables, windows with an amazing view and a gorgeous outdoor patio space use throughout the night.

The food was amazing! I know it's very hard to get great food for a wedding, especially at a hotel but good food was one of our most important requirements. We received so many compliments on how delicious it was and how perfectly it was cooked (and we can also speak to that first hand). Also- all the plates were served fresh and hot- not pre-made and re-heated.

The other great things- the wedding suite was amazing, the bar space in Amuse is unique and in a perfect location for our guests when they were not on the dance floor, the service staff was super attentive...seriously I loved everything about it! It truly was the best night of my life!

My husband and I stumbled onto the Hotel Palomar during a wedding open house and immediately knew we had found the PERFECT spot for our upcoming nuptials. The space itself is gorgeous, very modern, and has an amazing view of DC. Sandy (the event manager) was just very down to earth, not pushy at all and was very receptive to our multiple inquiries. Chef Paul the amazing head chef, Borris and Eileen were all invaluable too! My husband and I are both foodies and I have to say that food and beverages services were spot on, probably better than we both had anticipated. We're still getting compliments 3 months later. We ended up getting married during hurricane Irene and the Palomar staff adjusted everything quickly and gracefully. We had the ceremony indoors and that worked out really well. The Palomar also accommodated most of our out of town guests at a very reasonable rate. Plus everyone got free wine at the Palomar happy hour! It was also very convenient to hop over to Georgetown where we had our rehearsal dinner. And to top it all off we got quite the room upgrade. We couldn't have been happier with our entire experience:) Thanks Sandy!!!! - Erica & Craig <3

The space itself is gorgeous, very modern, and has an amazing view of DC. Sandy (the event manager) was just very down to earth, not pushy at all and was very receptive to our multiple inquiries. Chef Paul the amazing head chef, Borris and Eileen were all invaluable too! My husband and I are both foodies and I have to say that food and beverages services were spot on, probably better than we both had anticipated. We're still getting compliments 3 months later. We ended up getting married during hurricane Irene and the Palomar staff adjusted everything quickly and gracefully. We had the ceremony indoors and that worked out really well. The Palomar also accommodated most of our out of town guests at a very reasonable rate. Plus everyone got free wine at the Palomar happy hour! It was also very convenient to hop over to Georgetown where we had our rehearsal dinner. And to top it all off we got quite the room upgrade. We couldn't have been happier with our entire experience:) Thanks Sandy!!!! - Erica & Craig <3 Read less

My husband and I had our cocktail hour and wedding reception at Le Meridien in March 2014, and it truly was such a wonderful experience! Our situation was a little unique in that the hotel was renovating their event space prior to our event and we were the first event to be held in the new space which was truly stunning with the Potomac overlook. I couldn’t give 5 stars in all categories only because the renovations finished the morning of my wedding despite pushing our wedding date back 2 weeks. If I had to do it all again, I would still do it at Le Meridien because it turned out so beautifully and because of all of the hotel staff that I worked with!! Allison was our coordinator and she truly did anything and everything I asked, and she did it all in a very timely manner! She was so accommodating with all of my ideas from table runners to extra room keys to storage of our decor, and she made everything seem effortless! It is very evident that she truly cares about the bride and groom and wishes only the best for them on their special day! I must also say that Mabel and Edwin did a fantastic job with the cocktail hour and reception service! I know that I was probably in my "bride bubble" but they both seemed to anticipate anything that might "come up" and they took care of it even before it did. Le Meridien treated all of the little details with respect to make our dream day come true. The food was amazing! I received so many compliments on the cocktail appetizers (passed and table) as well as on the dinners! I did not use a cake from the preferred bakery as I had another cake vendor, and so Allison decreased my per person cost accordingly. The accommodations in the hotel were great. Our suite was enormous and beyond anything I ever imagined! Allison was also so kind and she asked the front desk to upgrade our guests' rooms as they were able. Bottom line, it is a stunning venue and the staff will make your dream day come true at Le Meridien!!

Le Meridien was a great location for my wedding cocktail hour. We had the Living Room area sectioned off with spillover space into the bar area of the restaurant. The food and drink was great, as was the staffing which catered to everyone's needs. Couldn't have asked for a better location and a better group to help w/ this event.

An absolutely perfect venue for a wedding and reception... the food was excellent although my only complaint is that the presentation of the dishes was different than at the tasting. The cake was SPECTACULAR and was delicious to boot. The Director of Catering and Event Manager waited on us hand and foot, although we should have been more specific about particular details (but if you have an outside wedding planner they could have watched over some of these for you). All in all, a wonderful event which we'll remember forever.

The hotel was well priced for my guests. But the front desk staff forgot/delivered very late the "out of town" bags. Also I had arranged for my guests to get breakfast vouchers- but many of guests did not get them at check-in. I would recommend for the price but not the service.

Hotel Palomar in Arlington is a beautiful hotel with the worst management that I've ever encountered. We chose Hotel Palomar for our after-party location and as our recommended hotel for out-of-town guests to stay in during the wedding weekend. First, the hotel dropped our room reservation 5 times (5 times!) and I am the bride! I had to keep calling back and emailing in order to finally get it right, and even then, they checked us out and locked us out of our room a night early. They also charged our guests multiple incorrect rates, charging some over $300 for a room that was supposed to be at the block rate at half that price. They also couldn't seem to figure out how to charge guests the block rate for some nights and for guests who arrived early or stayed later, a different rate on other nights. They kept checking our guests out early and giving them bills, which was very frustrating and disruptive. The after party experience was even worse. We were promised that the hotel would set up a satellite bar in the lobby/living room that would be open to our 100+ guests until at least 1 AM, if not later. (There was another wedding going on in the main restaurant/bar.) The satellite bar was set up as promised, but then closed up and wheeled away at about 11:15! We were shocked. When we told the management about the mistake we were told many different stories and had to get our wedding planner to try to call the hotel management to fix the situation. She was told a different lie and as it turned out hours later, the hotel had RUN OUT OF ALCOHOL. On a Saturday night. With two wedding parties at the hotel. Unbelievable! I spent my wedding night on the phone and talking to hotel management, as, with no drinks in sight, our guests slowly slipped away. My husband and uncles ran out at 12:45 AM to buy beer from a 7-11 and bring it back to the hotel so our remaining guests would have something to drink. What a nightmare! None of the event managers were anywhere around to help out until the following afternoon. We were furious. The hotel attempted to compensate us for the mistakes, but there really is no way of getting back hours of your wedding night that were totally wasted and guests who had traveled across the country and around the world who you didn't get to talk to because you were dealing with terrible hotel management. Hotel Palomar was the one black spot on our otherwise sterling wedding weekend. Brides, beware -- don't rely on Hotel Palomar for your special event.

Le Meridien Arlington, Starwood Hotels & Resorts responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review. This was a mis communication and we apologized for the delay in service to the wedding party returning back to the hotel. During that evening, we were able to set up a bar. It is always upsetting when things do not go perfect on your wedding day. The wedding did not take place here at the hotel. We have taking additional steps to ratified this issue. Thank you for sharing your feedback and we have corrected how we communicate our hotel bar to stay open for our wedding room block guests.
