Great location for walking to shops, restaurants and bars. Parking in the city always problematic. Valet the best way to go. The building has a beautiful brick interior which is original. Beautifully restored. The rooms are small but clean and adequate. If you have an interior room then your window overlooks the interior brick. No outside view. The staff from valet to front desk was very pleasant. Breakfast is okay but over priced. Cost reasonable for a major city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We recently stayed at Le Meridien and it was a great experience. The staff was quite welcoming and very accommodating to our desires to tour downtown and gave many suggestions for places to go and eat. We were traveling with a 1 year old and thus had to use the ADA entrance for the stroller. There were some issues with the doorway to the lobby and our bed was a little soft, that's why I wouldn't necessarily give the hotel more than a 4. The room wasn't huge, especially with a crib, but they were quite prompt in bringing it and it was very clean. Great decor and very good overall experience.

Green Features: We chose to forego the cleaning in lieu of starwood points credited to our account. This was a nice feature.

This is a solid 4-star hotel, conveniently located across the art museum and is near City Hall (walking distance from many of Philadelphia's historical attractions). Service is attentive, and the hotel restaurant was quite good. Maybe it's that French influence! The soup and salad I ordered through room service had beautifully fresh, crisp greens, and the onion soup was quite good. They gave me a mini-loaf of French bread which was fresh and very delicious. Morning breakfasts seemed a bit understaffed, but the food was very good. Le Meridien offers an eco-friendly option of giving you a $10 credit each day you choose to skip maid service, which I liked. The only drawback or caution I would highlight is that the front entrance doesn't seem to have a ramp for handicapped persons, which I find curious, since the steps are fairly steep. The doormen are very attentive, so perhaps they try to make up for it that way, but I wonder whether folks on crutches or in wheelchairs might have to go through the side or back door. And as others have noted, it is a bit strange to walk into a hotel and not see the registration desk right away - instead, the first thing you see is the bar! But overall, this is a nice place to stay.

Great location for walking to restaurants and shopping. Love the interior architecture and design of the building. Our room, # 753, was very large and comfy. Service was friendly and accommodating.
The Lobby Bar is a great place to end the evening. The only negative for me was no make up mirror in the bathroom.

Stay here if you can get a good deal, weekend rate, etc. It's not quite the cookie-cutter hotel...the technology is great, room service worked well for a late night dinner, and the bar downstairs is quite cool. Excellent location too.

If you are looking for a place with great service, stay here. Everyone I interacted with went out of there way to help. One example was I called for help with the internet and while the tech was in my room, they noticed the TV was too fuzzy and made an adjustment without my even asking. They have a nice bar in the lobby but it can get a little noisy when full so hard to have a business conversation. The room were fine and mine was quiet for a good nights sleep. Coffee maker was in a dark cabinet so hard to fill with water without spilling. Room service menu was a bit limited. Good location (easy walk) near suburban station and downtown buildings.

Stayed May 2012 for a conference. Great location in Downtown Philly; walking distance to most of the sights. Beautiful modern bar/lobby as well as nice decor in the room. Space on the small side but still very comfortable. Large dust bunnies under the closet/cabinet, which were vacuumed after request. Overall, would stay there again but would call in advance to make sure the room is adequately cleaned before check-in.
