Le Meridien Philadelphia

Recent guest reviews

Was not aware that the hotel was under renovation and there was no lobby. Definitely expected more from this brand of hotel. Location was great but hotel lacked customer service and the rooms were not the cleanest. Would stay somewhere else next time.

Valets and bellhops are really considerate and helpful. Front desk needs at least 2 more workers during check-in times. Gym leaves much to be desired. TV channels don't really work. Had "Do not disturb" sign up but worker still disturbed; not cool. Bathroom shower had weird mustard colored stains; kind of gross but covered with towel so wasn't visible. Fairly central location. Bed is comfortable but sank in a great deal after one night of sleep (I'm less than 125 lbs so not a matter of weight; perhaps the mattress pads needs to be replaced :)). Would've been nice to have cloth slippers in the room like most higher end hotels...

Initial contact with hotel staff was excellent! Rhea was super friendly, helpful, and took her time to make sure that I was going to be comfortable so my immediate customer experience was very positive. The other staff members were also friendly and helpful - they know how to look after customers!

Clean room, helpful staff, good food, and cool look.

great location, near everything, great service and the staff was very friendly.

It is very close to the city hall,good location that it is also close to the China Town, the amenities are great, but they don't offer breakfast, and the wifi is not free.

Nice place to stay. On New Years day there was a parade of some sort so driving in search for food was a nightmare. Every street we wanted to go down was blocked off. Only thing wrong with the room was the iron didnt work. One thing I didnt like was being told my car would take 15 minutes to get to valet. It came in less time though ,and $40 to park for a night is a bit pricey. Other than that it was comfortable.

Location was perfect in the middle of Central Philly. Staff was outstanding, very friendly, and exceedignly helpful for anything we needed. Room was a little small, but all we needed for our short stay.

Centrally located. Friendly & courteous staff. Hotel was nicely furnished with a great lobby bar. Room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. I would stay there again.

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.

There was a fire alarm and the hotel offered breakfast coupons. Rooms were nice and convenient neighborhood for sightseeing.

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.

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.

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.

nothing especial

Good experience
