I stayed at Le Meridien for 5 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. I had a fantastic room, with lots of floor to ceiling windows. The decor is very trendy...almost like a boutique hotel. The walls are very thin though...I did hear my neighbors loud and clear a few evenings.
Service was hit or miss. Sometimes I'd call on my way back to the hotel from a day out to ask a question and no one would answer the phone at the front desk...this happened on multiple occasions. Another problem was the valet...they were usually quick to retrieve my car in the morning, but upon returning in the early evening - on two nights I waited 5-10 minutes and there were no valet people in sight. I once tried to call, but then no one answered at the front desk (uggh) and so I had to leave my car out there and go up to the front desk to find a valet person. It was very frustrating after a long day at work.
There was a free happy hour in the evening where they offered red and white wine to guests...very nice.
Room service was a great late night choice. They did mess up my order but were very kind and gracious about it. Additionally, the food was delicious! I had one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches of my life. :) It was the late night menu that I had to order from, but the quality was still there.
The gym is very nice...good cardio and weights. Although, on my last day there, 2 of the 3 elliptical machines were broken.
I liked the experience overall...but I need to stay here a few more times to get a more definitive feel.
