Goodsubmitted by Aleksandar T. - |Recommended: YesCome and join us
Decent enoughsubmitted by Jeremy S. - |Recommended: YesI have only been here a few months but the place is decent. Maintenance usually responds rather quickly. There are a couple requests that I have asked the front office for that haven't been resolved though. The package acceptance is good. Not every apartment complex has this feature. There is no shuttle bus service, even though many apartments in NOVA has this service. As far as the actual apartment, it usually cools fairly well. I will have to wait until the winter to check the heating. I don't expect a problem though because its seems like the lighting is heat generating. It definitely heats up my apartment. I enjoy the concrete floors, so I cant hear every step the neighbor above me takes. However I can hear them using their blender at 12 45 a.m. in the morning sometimes. I think my biggest issue outside of no shuttle bus service is that it seems like every neighbor allows their children to run and scream down the hallway leading to the game room and swimming pool area with no regard for the expected peace and quiet for their neighbors on the 2nd floor. If management could put some type of sign and a follow-up email alerting neighbors to prevent their children from running down the hallway and making all of the noise on that floor, that would be ideal. The pool table in the game room needs to be repaired. Every time the balls drop on the floor, it makes a loud sound. Also, I would consider purchasing another parking spot if the price dropped so that it would be easier for friends to come visit. Parking is extremely scarce, but this is also expected when living in Arlington. The online rent pay feature is good, and the staff usually responds to email. I really like the idea that the community does not allow pets so for those who do not want to smell dog waste even though you will need a gas mask during a short walk up the side walk past the neighboring community , have pet allergies, or want to listen to consistent barking, this community is ideal. Other than that, the community is good. What you see is what you get. I would recommend it to a friend. My only suggestions for right now would be 1. Please contract with a shuttle bus company to provide shuttle bus services to the nearest metro station. I thought this was standard in the northern Virginia area. Many other apartment complexes provide this service. 2. Please place a sign on the 2nd floor alerting everyone to keep down the noise, and also not allow their children to run and yell down the hallway. 3. Take another look at the pricing for additional parking spaces. Is there any room to lower the price. I may submit another review at the end of the year. So far not so bad, but there is always room for improvement. Thanks,

Breath of fresh air in a competitive city to live insubmitted by Aubrey P. - |Recommended: YesI searched for what felt like forever to find a safe, quality apartment in the Alexandria Arlington area. The Dolley Madison towers are like a hotel So clean and safe. I love that there is a concierge downstairs, along with gym and convenience store. I feel like I am on vacation. I am very happy with my decision to live here

Good amenities and common areas are well kept. I would like to have newer and more up-to-date washer dryer dishwasher. They definitely need to be upgraded they are also old.

Great spotsubmitted by Whitney M. - |Recommended: Yesgreat spot
Close to Pentagon and DCsubmitted by EMORY O. - |Recommended: YesRent is high, but you are close to DC. Rent does NOT include parking even outdoor or storage, those are extra. The staff here are great, although there is a lot of turnover except in maintenance and housekeeping, both of which do a great job. However, the A C goes out more often than it should and is not even looked at until Monday at 9 a.m. if it happens anytime after 3 p.m. on a Friday. The noise from I-395 is quite loud if windows are open or you are sitting on your balcony. View of the Army-Navy golf course is nice, especially with the deer and fox that you frequently see there. Kitchens are small with few cupboards, but appliances are nice. Bedrooms and baths are good size.
