I've got no complaints submitted by Darrell G. - |Recommended: YesPros This property is in a convenient location being close to 395 495, with ample public transportation, a quiet neighborhood, a diverse community, and close to a park. The building is pet friendly and has Comcast wi-fi throughout. The floors of the building are very solid, which is good because I hate hearing footsteps above my head. The apartment itself 1bed, 1bath den is spacious enough for me to have guest comfortably. I haven't had any bug issues. Reliable laundry rooms on each floor. Nice view from the 225 building. Cons The HVAC of this building is louder than I am use to and connected to the bedrooms. The elevators aren't always reliable and somewhat slow. Kids keep drawing dicks in the stairwells. If you can, move late in the evening, heavy foot traffic and slow elevators lots of frustration. Minor issues with apartment, bedroom door doesn't lock, living room blinds were installed incorrectly and it may take a couple of flicks to turn on the kitchen lights.

Great place, not so much staff. submitted by Keith B. - |Recommended: NoI adore our apartment It's amazing and we hardly ever hear our neighbors. Everything is kept neat for the most part. The people at the front desk have been pretty rude since they started hiring so many and one person in Particular that works in the office is extremely rude. I am from Tennessee and when my family visits for holidays we have to pay 40.00 for them to park.. that is absolutely RIDICULOUS. we pay 1600 a month for our apartment and expected to pay extra for one vehicle staying for 5 days As if I don't pay them a month... Other than that I like it. We also referred people to move in and they filled out a referral sheet and we got no money off of our rent like they say you will.. they are very money hungry.
response from property -Mr. Blackburn: I appreciate the feedback. I am the new Community Director for The Strand of Alexandria, and I will look into all the concerns you have mentioned to see how I can improve them. If you have not yet received the referral you mentioned please give me a call in the office, at your convenience, so that I can get that taken care of for you, 703.370.7036. We appreciate you as our resident and are happy you chose The Strand of Alexandria for your home. Respectfully, Jessica - Community Director
