Located directly across from City Hall, Le Meridien is conveniently located at City Center. The location is especially good for convention goers or business travelers. Old town is several blocks east and most museums are a few blocks west. So if you want to do both, then this hotel is central.
Upon our arrival, the doormen, bellmen and front desk staff provided very prompt and courteous service. An excellent first impression! As others have amply pointed out, the hotel has a very funky, European modern decor both in its public and private spaces. Elevators are even labeled "lifts".
Our room on an upper floor faced north toward the hospital and parking lot. If you care about the view, request a front-facing view of City Hall. The room was typical size and funky features like a large industrial sliding door for the bathroom, and chic room and desk lamps. Didn't like the shower faucet because you couldn't avoid getting wet trying to turn it on. As with many hotel bathrooms, there was only one double hook. We had a tough time sleeping both nights because we felt the bed and pillows were too way soft. Be sure to request firmer pillows if this is important to you.
Amuse has great food but the wait staff seemed overwhelmed that evening. Our service was spotty and barely adequate. Two waiters stopped at our table--each not realizing the other had already come by. Nobody read us the specials. We asked for more bread but never got it. The food itself was excellent and we enjoyed our meal nevertheless. If you don't need to formal dining experience, we preferred the hubbub and wide selection of the Reading Terminal Market a few blocks away! Overall a great stay at Le Meridien!
