The room was cozy and comfortable. The staff were very helpful folks. we can down for a New Year's Eve trip. The location was very good for us to be able to walk to the Reading Terminal Market for food, and downtown to see some of the open attractions.

I had an amazing stay at le Meridien. Huge thanks go to the amazing team at the front desk. My flight home - connecting through Philadelphia -was cancelled necessitating an overnight. Staff raised the hospitality bar - in my “what else can go wrong” state, I so appreciated their friendly faces and demeanor. (Plus great recommendations for dinner & breakfast). And thank you for providing me with a toothbrush and toothpaste!

I have nothing but the highest regard for this hotel. From the front desk attendant who checked me in early to the kind attendant that helped me figure out how to get back to the train depot, my experience was spectacular. I almost stayed an extra day just because I loved the hotel so much. It was clean, modern and comfortable. I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to stay there without the covid restrictions. I would have loved to sit and have a drink in the main lobby. Great experience all around!

I booked the Meridien for a few reasons: I was traveling for work and wanted to stay in center city. A lot of the hotels are not offering valet, but the Meridien is. They also have their own lot that’s not outside and I found the valet service to be excellent and prompt. The room was large, bathroom was also large, and I had a great view of the Christmas tree at city hall. I also want to commend the staff — Wilson, the General Manager, checked me in my first night and couldn’t have been more friendly. I also interacted with the desk staff (who because of the pandemic are various senior employees) and I found them all to be helpful and very friendly. They called me by name and were conversational everyday. Yolanda checked me out today and was exceptional. I will be traveling to Philly regularly every month or so and will always stay at this property. I commend Wilson and his team!

I had a one night stay here during COVID lock down part deux. The story story is that it's a decent hotel (of which Philly doesn't have a lot - even the so-called four and five star places tend to be disappointing). I had a restful stay and would stay here again. My plane got in early and I got to the hotel before noon. I was able to check in upon arrival (although the hotel was pretty empty due to the lock down). I believe this building used to be a Y. (I formerly worked a lot at City Hall and my boss used to go to the gym here daily, I think.) Inside, they connected the building with one next door by putting a glass roof over the two (common in Philly). I think some rooms have a view of the inside of the hotel for this reason, which I generally find depressing and do not like. I didn't get a room like this, but you may want to ask that they not give you such a room if that bothers you. The flip side is that a room with an interior view can feel safer, although this isn't an unsafe hotel. The view from my room (709) was over the back of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, which is directly beside the hotel, and the PA Convention Center. Better to look at PAFA from the front, which you can't do from this hotel, but it was interesting and very quiet. The room has a safe and fridge in a nice armoire with lights that turn on only when it's open. If there's one complaint, it's that my room was smaller than the ones in the pictures and didn't have a lot of seating - just a desk chair. So, no yellow arm chair or end of bed bench like in the pictures. Also, not enough clean towels. The remote was sealed in a newly changed plastic bag so I didn't have to worry about touching it. The door to the room and the fridge were sealed with tape to signal that they had been cleaned since the last occupant. This hotel is close to everything. I'm here to do journalism work unrelated to the pandemic, but noticed young people here are still going out in droves on a Friday night, even with the renewed lock down. The plazas around City Hall are filled with ice skaters and people dining at the holiday village. The streets in the neighborhood of 13th and Chestnut to 13th and Spruce were filled with mostly young whites eating outside. I'm not going to judge because someone has to keep the Philly restaurant scene going and it is outside. Much of Center City is within walking distance of the hotel. I would stay here again.
