We come here every once and a while when there's a good show in London.
Since it was partially refurnished, there are truly some pros and unfortunately cons.
The top 3 pros:
1. Friendliness of service. Reception was just perfect and we got a beautiful upgrade as SPG Gold members.
2. Location. Just off Leicester square, 5 minutes from Covent Garden, theaters, etc., you couldn't be much more central.
3. Comfort. The rooms are OK, great comfortable beds, globally quiet considering the noise of the street.
The worst cons:
1. The "new bar" would loose any contest whether it had to do with elegance, comfort or taste. I felt as if we were in the chicken class backroom of some crappy joint. Uncomfortable plastic chairs and hard cheap plastic hard banquettes, down in the basement. Unacceptable for this type of quality hotel. Avoid it, especially if you have a date!
2. The price. I don't mind paying a high price for high standards, and London is known not to come cheap. However if a hotel wants to play it grand, then the business center, lounge, breakfast etc should be in line. Unfortunately, these amenities are in line with an average tourist hotel and not a higher end hotel which the Meridien tries to promote.
