Recent Van Metre reviews
Upon searching for residences in the Arlington area, Park Georgetown appealed to me and my roommate more than any other complex. It's ideal location, paired with fantastic rental rates and professional staff, make this an incredible place to live. I'd recommend this complex to friends, for sure!
Convenient but not worth it
Overall, Park Georgetown is convenient and the location is great for the price but the apartment leaves much to be desired. The buildings are old, noisy and the walls are paper thin. I will be happy to move to an upgraded apartment community even if it costs more.
Love this place!
I am in love with PGT! For my budget, I have the largest 1 bedroom in the area with an absolutely amazing management staff. The entire staff is like family now and it makes me never want to leave this community! The building are a bit older but in such great condition and maintenance will come for any problem in a timely manner! One of the huge running paths backs right up to the property but the property is still on its own and safe! Not the best location for walking to courthouse/Clarendon and the metro is about 12 minute walk but there are always sacrifices when you have a budget!
This community management is AWESOME. I have only been here a short while but the Property Manager could not be more sincere about caring about his residents. Since the day I moved in I have felt like I have been treated with high priority in any needs I have had and I know this is how everyone feels. Older buildings and no pool and not a great gym but for my price range it is the absolute best deal around!
Great place to live!
You get what you pay for in DC. Van Metre is reasonably priced for DC and it comes with a great location and management is easy to work with. The amenities could be a little better, but a higher end building would cost considerably more.
I've been at the Park Marconi just short of two years and have had a positive experience. The studio is very spacious and nice for the price and location and the management is very responsive. As for amenities, there's really nothing, but it's an older building so that's to be expected.
Overpriced and difficult management
The management at Ravenel is terrible. My unit is worth it because it is rent controlled, but otherwise most apartments are overpriced and management is a large, anonymous, corporate entity.
Building is a little older and there aren't a lot of amenities, but it's a great space and a good price for the neighborhood. Management has always been pretty responsive and takes care of the property well. Great, central location. Overall very happy with living here!
Great in the summer
This apartment is located right by Meridian Hill Park. It is perfect for the summer, as you can take a break in the park without having to walk more than 5 minutes! The apartment isn't as nice as, say, the one's on 14th street, but it is a more low-key environment and not as rowdy.
Manger is phenomenal but the other leasing office staff are not as on top of their game. The apartments are a bit old and have some issues, such as old windows which are very drafty in the winter, but overall not bad for the area. There are no in-unit washer and dryers and not every building has a laundry room so you could be walking outside to do laundry.
Overall the area is very nice, they do a great job with landscaping and have a very nice grill area outside. The location is very convenient for getting to Georgetown or around the city in general. About a 7 minute walk from the Rosslyn metro station and a 20-30min walk from Georgetown campus. This apartment complex is also very pet friendly so is a good choice for students who have pets and want a cheaper place to live with easy access to Georgetown.
Spacious apartments at an affordable rent
The 2-bedrooms are probably a better value but overall you get a pretty big space for a good rate, one stop away from DC. It's a little out of the way, and I don't LOVE the walk to and from the metro (could use better lighting), but the apartment is otherwise great.
