We booked a 1-night stay at Le Meridien Philadelphia to attend a wedding. We were flying into New Jersey, driving to Philadelphia, and planning to get ready for the wedding all in the same day. I called in advance to request early check-in, which is obviously never guaranteed, but the hotel staff managed to accommodate our request and really helped us after a long day of travel! We were pleasantly surprised and relieved by this outcome and thanked the desk staff. We stayed on level 5, which had a very fun architectural layout when stepping off the elevator. The rooms were clean, spacious, and had a little individual character with a Philly "fun fact" on the window. When we were on our way out to head to the wedding, the front desk called a taxi as soon as they saw us coming because they remembered our plans, and it showed up in 2 minutes! Not only was that one less thing we had to worry about, but it shows that the staff genuinely had an interest to take care of us. Overall, we thought the hotel was pleasant and really appreciated the little touches the staff went to making our stay as smooth as possible.

I noticed there was an improper Bonvoy redemption certificate fee on my invoice and asked the front desk manager to remove it. She explained the glitch that caused it to appear and immediately corrected the bill. I found the whole staff including valet parking, housekeeping and front desk to be on their game, kind and attentive.

Beautiful hotel, but Do Not stay here in the summer months. Air conditioning system is not large enough to keep the lobby or rooms below 80degrees, even at nite. It is 9pm and my room is 82 degrees. Front desk told me it is this way every summer.

We stayed here while visiting Philadelphia for the July 4th holiday. There was an incident during the firework display that tainted our trip. (just google July 4 fireworks Philadelphia if you want to know). However every single person on staff that we encountered was amazing! When we checked in DeVaughn was incredibly helpful and honored our request for a quiet room away from the elevators; Danita, Sabrina, Jacqueline and Sovanna who we dealt with at various points of the stay were all professional, helpful and friendly; Destiny at the valet station gave helpful advice about the neighborhood and took great care of our car; and Marcell at the bar/bistro was awesome and friendly and helpful as well. The hotel is located near City Hall and Love Park; we spent a lot of time just walking around and exploring and never felt unsafe. The only complaints I have are with the actual hotel itself: it is a bit worn in places (scratches and water damage on the dresser, a dent in the wall), there's no fan in the bathroom (which I will never, ever understand), the shower curtain had a few broken rings, and a double room has two double beds instead of two queen beds which I've not seen before (even in boutique hotels the same size). But everything was clean and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. And again the level of service we received was outstanding. Thanks so much everyone for a great experience. :)

Location is centrally located in Philly close to great restaurants and bars. Rooms were nice and clean. Conference room was great but most importantly, staff at the hotel were amazingly considerate and attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel anytime!

Always love coming to this property! It feels like a vacation when I am on a work trip. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Walking distance to Reading Terminal Market where you can get everything you could ever imagine! Also Trader Joes and Starbucks just around the corner!

The valet staff upon arrival was friendly and helped us to the elevator as we had a lot of baggage. Walking to the front desk with Gaby was a very different tone. She was on the phone with a guest and we waited a few minutes for her to finish her call. No smile, no welcome, just "last name on your reservation, and license and credit card". I asked if there were any upgrades available (as a Platinum Bonvoy member) and she sharply said no, we're sold out. I said that's strange because I had booked last minute and had just been on the app and noticed that every room type was available. She ignored me and kept working on the reservation. My husband walked up and I asked to add him to the reservation. She did that and then I asked her about breakfast times. She handed me one key (which didn't make sense because I had just added a second person to the reservation) and have never had to ask for a second key - especially if my husband is standing right next to me and I confirmed he was added to the reservation. When she gave me the room number I asked if there were no upgrades if we at least had a room with a view and she said you have a room with 2 double beds which came as a big surprise. I said please explain to me why you see I'm here with my husband, we've added him to the reservation, and you're giving me one key with a room with two double beds? Her response (with a lot of attitude) was well this is the best room we have. I said that it was very frustrating and disappointing that as a Platinum member who booked a king room to get two double beds was not acceptable. I understand if you can't do an upgrade but we were NOT arriving early by coming at 6:30pm so we were there after check-in time. She called housekeeping to see what she could do after my husband and I said we were very unhappy to have that room type. We waited another 10-15 minutes while she was on the phone. When she got off the phone (still with attitude) gave us a new envelope with one key again (instead of two). When she gave me the second key she said sharply, you're now in a superior king, so you got your upgrade. It was really terrible customer service and left us feeling very unwelcome. Upon arriving in the room, this is not Gaby's fault, but room #757 is not a comfortable room. The TV is on the left side and there is no real comfortable way to watch the TV. There is only one chair in the corner. And from the bed you have to lay on your side and turn your head. It took so long to get our room that I didn't want to keep complaining and deal with Gaby's attitude but we were not happy with the room and her rude comment of "now you have your upgrade" left a really bad taste in my mouth. The only bright spot was that the view from the room of Love Park was pleasant. In general the front desk staff followed the trend we experienced with Gaby, no one ever said hello or welcome upon arrival - especially because you have to pass the front desk to get to the elevator.  And many of the times when we passed the front desk no one was at the desk and it really changes the tone when someone with a friendly smile says hello. The other thing that really stuck out was breakfast.  We received a voucher per day and told that breakfast was until 10am.  We had a lovely waiter on day 1.  On day 2 my husband came down at 9:50-55am to quickly grab coffee and the continental breakfast included.  The waitress, Lauren, gave him attitude and said that their last seating was 9:45am and she couldn't help.  If 9:45am is the last seating then you need to tell patrons that breakfast ends at 9:45am instead of 10am.  I have never experienced this before and it left another very negative experience. Upon checking out the gentleman who checked me out was friendly enough but I thought it was interesting how he didn't ask how my stay was (which is what I'm typically asked).  Had he asked I would have told him how disappointing the stay was and that I wouldn't recommend this hotel.  There are much better places to stay in Philly.

Room Tip: If you are given 757 ask for a different room! Unless you plan to never turn on the TV.

Stellar service from Gabby at check in and Marcel from the bar. Gabby checked me in so efficiently and then offered me advice on local eats! Marcel was here to talk to me about my evening and keep the party going at the hotel bar. Don’t skip on staying here. Beds were of course perfect! Way to go crew. Thank you
