Le Meridien is a Starwood property, and the brand has French origins. The hotel is stylish and modern, but kept some of the old touches of the faux Georgian building that now houses the hotel. We were here for one night, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but it is an interestingly designed hotel bar/restaurant with communal tables. On a Saturday night it was surprisingly empty, so whatever buzz this place might have had must be gone. The room was modern with comfortable beds and pleasant wood and lacquer furnishings. It was also very, very small, smaller than a room in Philadelphia should be, and stuffy to boot. In New York City, rooms are often this small, but elsewhere it just seems stingy. My real problem with Le Meridien is its location, a block off City Hall and close to the Broad Street entrance of the convention center. However, there are no restaurants or attractions in the surrounding blocks, and the establishments that share the hotel's block are all pretty dingy. If you're going to open a nice hotel, put it somewhere that MATTERS, or where visitors would be pleased to roam. Le Meridien has a lot going for it, but unless I had business at City Hall or had to be at the convention center at 8:30 a.m., I'd pick another neighborhood. Come on Philadelphia, make the Broad Street North area worthy of this hotel. Bring some life to this dirty construction site of a a neighborhood.
