Originally a YMCA, our hotel is housed in a 10-story Georgian revival-style structure with intriguing historical flair, located in the heart of the city's business district and less than one block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Striking features and architectural detail awaken the eye: a skylight allows for the play of natural light to our 75-foot central atrium courtyard, while an airy restaurant/bar with graceful archways and classic woodwork brings endless possibility. Our 202 rooms feature bold black and white decor with inspired red accents to enhance the hotel interior's rich millwork. The Grand Ballroom provides a stately yet original setting for any gathering, with views of Philadelphia's renowned City Hall.

Great hotel and location

I was surprised at how nice this hotel is. From the outside it does not look like much at all but inside it's pretty modern and well decorated and the rooms reflect the same.

Annual medical visit

A nice but unusual hotel - an old buiding transformed within its shell with a smallish, but a comfortable room. A sliding door to access the bathroom was a bit strange. It actually got stuck in a closed postion needing a call to the front desk for help. Fortunately, I was on the right side - the bedroom! With no telephone in the bathroom, communication could have made for a serious problem.

Best in its class

Le Meridien is ideally located in Center City a block or so from City Hall, within a short walk of Independence Park, Museum Parkway, and the Reading Terminal Market. The world-class Philadelphia Institute for Fine Arts (home to the Gross Clinic, several Stuart portraits of Washington, and many other important American paintings) is around the corner. The staff are uniformly helpful and friendly, and the rooms are clean. It's an ideal hotel for those looking for a unique space but don't want to sacrifice modern conveniences. In all, it is underpriced, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Phila.

Walk to Reading Terminal Market right down the street and order a roast pork, provolone, peppers, and broccoli rabe hoagie from DiNic's in the middle of the Market. It is a life-changer.

Great Location!

Seemed that we could walk to most any of the sites we wanted to see, like the Liberty Bell. The Reading Market (I think that is the name) is a do not miss experience and it is 2 blocks from the hotel. Staff was warm, welcoming and extremely helpful when we had questions.
