“Great hotel and location”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

There is nothing spectacular about this hotel but there is also nothing to complain about. Everything from the staff to room cleanliness was great. There was some jack hammer noise from construction nearby (as others have mentioned) but if you're traveling for work and can't sleep in that's not an issue. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely return.

Thank you for your feedback on your experience. The construction noise was a project being completed by the Embarcadero Center and we truly apologize for the disruption of your rest.

We trust you enjoyed San Francisco and hope to see you on your next visit to our beautiful city.

You stay at ths hotel for its location to the financial district. The lobby and facilities are pristine. That said, my room smelled slightly stale when I first walked in, so I open the sliders. It freshened up. My two metrics for rating business hotels beyond the usual: eggs and shower. Poached eggs in the restaurant are excellent. The shower pressure is good and the water temp get nice and hot. There is also a Starbucks right across the street and it opens early.

Dear Guest,

We read your review and are delighted that you enjoyed the fresh air in your room . . . not all hotels have windows that will allow you to open them slightly like the windows at LeMeridien!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

Sincerely,

Hotel Management

I had a 4 nights stopover in San Francisco with my colleauge after 2 weeks business travel on the way home. I think this is a more business travel focused hotel rather than tour focused hotel. We bidded hotel through Priceline with a very reasonable (or low) price to make reservation of this hotel. The location of the hotel not far from BART's Financial Street station where walk takes about 5 to 7 minutes. We stayed there at the end of Jan, 2013, during which the hotel lobby was still under renew process, I do not know what it is like now. Should be good. Checkin and Checkout time is very fast, though the reception and concierge staffs are not that warm, but the work is efficient. The layout of the room is very good, is worthy to the standards of Le Meridian brand in US. In the 12th floor, we feel there is some obscured, to stay higher floor scenery should be very good. You can walk to the Pier, within 10 minutes for sure. The China Town also located at the walk range, if you do not mind to take a little more moment. Probably because the Financial Street, weekend, especially Saturday night, surrounded by very deserted, it was even hard for us to find a place for dinner, the elephant bar of the opposite hotel saved us. Although this is not the best DownTown San Francisco hotel, but considering the price, brand, location, still, it is very good value. P.S. This hotel has no swimming pool.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience.

We're happy to inform you that the hotel has revealed the newly styled lobby and Bar 333 ~ very chic, modern luxurious in design. The feedback from the guests is overwhelming favorable.

On your next weekend visit to Le Meridien, please ensure you visit the Famers Market Saturday morning which is located at the Ferry Building ~ it's bustling with energy, entertainment and displays of many local creations. It's fantastic.

Our Concierge Team can assist you with culinary dining options within walking distance from the hotel: Michael Mina (2 blocks), Tyler Florence's Wayfare Tavern (5 blocks), Bix (5 blocks), Prabacco (4 blocks) and many more!

Thank you again and we hope to see you on your next visit to San Francisco!

I stayed at this place when it was a Park Hyatt years ago, and loved it. I was excited to make my return over a decade later after the hotel was rennovated. Overall, it is a generally good work hotel, but it is not a luxury hotel.

The rooms are comfortable however it appears smaller than i remember the park hyat rooms to be. The bed is really comfortable an the desk is nice with conveniently located plugs. There is no free wi-fi but the wi-fi is easy to access. The rooms are a bit worn. The ceilings in the bathroom are dirty and there is a bit of mold on the shower. The cordless phone did not work. The mini bar was a bit light.

The meals were decent. The meals were ok. Service at breakfast was horrible. I waited so long for my coffee that I had to get my own coffee from the self-serve coffee dispenser by the check in desk.

I don't like the black and white decor in the lobby and in the rooms. It is so stark and not inviting.

Location is decent at the end of the embarcadero shopping center. It is close to downtown and the wharf. It's also in a quiet place.

Service other than breakfast was excellent. Friendly staff. Flexible when it came to late check out.

Overall not my top choice in hotels but wouldn't hesitate to stay there if I had to.

I was very impressed with how courteous and helpful the staff were at this hotel. From the valet to the front desk, to room service and the restaurant, everyone was polite and the service was fast. The location is close to the ferry building and financial district. If you're here on holiday, bear in mind that a lot of the shops close down before midnight, it's the business district and mostly alive during work hours. I was surprised that the hotel was not very clean, however, and the room had a dirty duvet peeking out from underneath a buttoned cover.

In the shadows of the Trans American building Le Meridien offers a great location especially if you can get a high floor room. Easy access off the Bart (take the Embarcadero stop and it is a 5-8 minute walk) from SFO. Away from hustle and hassle of main tourist areas but still easy access. Also great access to Ferry building.
Top floors are the best (18+ or higher) but a bit THIN on noise. I just hate hearing the guy above me use the bathroom! Yuck.
Staff is average with exception of doormen who are VERY helpful. NEW LOBBY is finished and nice if you like contemporary. Not the most Romantic place per se, but a decent facility with a better than average location.

Room Tip: High floor rooms facing water and Trans Am building. I think they are even # rooms. West side of bui...

My company had rented a conference room at Le Meridien this month and we could not have been happier with the service. All rooms underwent recent remodeling and the space is just beautiful. We have originally asked for a smaller room and ended up getting the biggest available room with a great view thanks to our event coordinator, Kelly. There are so many wonderful things I could write about the hotel, but people who worked there are just incredible. We would like to mention Kelly, Antoni (wonderful Polish man who took care of about 17 people we had with us that day) and a technician (I am sorry for not remembering the name) who was on site available throughout the event. We would absolutely go back. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
