I stayed in ( Meridien Jeddah ) during my business trip on ( 4 & 5 /9/2013 ) on one of the third floor's rooms.
I'm really got a very bad experience about the hotel. The hotel can't be rated more than 3 stars hotel by all meanings & I'm wonder how a big company such as Starwood has not checked and inspected their hotels periodically.
1-Reception staff have no eye contact and very poor welcoming.
I only just remember the receptionist words that ( The Internet usage with fees ) during finalising the check in.
2-Room is very old from everything (including furniture which is full with stains).
3-Once I checked in the room, I found there was a very bad sewage smell in the room. I spoke to the reception which he urged with me then I asked for the General Manger, then the receptionist came to my room and explained to me that this smell due to this room is a smoking room and this smell from the previous guest!!!!!
4-He changed the room for me which I found it was more wore st. Then I returned back to the first one!!!!
5-Breakfast food quality very bad & only one or two staff serving the hall restaurant and there was shouting between two chefs.
I believe this is not a starwood hotel standard.
