I have stayed at this hotel three times now in my travels to Philly, and I have found it to be the best place to stay in the city. Everyone is so helpful, from the valet to the front desk, to the room keep. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Philly and loves good service.

Just got back from a weekend trip to Philly and LOVED my stay at Le Meridien! The rooms were gorgeous, very modern and clean. The staff was extremely friendly and always willing to lend an extra hand (carrying luggage, giving directions, offering insights of the area, etc.). Lobby lounge was a perfect spot to hang out with friends before heading out for the night. Will definitely be returning soon!

I travel very often for both business and personal and was very pleased with the hotel. Beautiful clean rooms and lobby area and outstanding service. The woman that works Fridays at the check-in desk around 930-10pm was especially nice and helpful. Would def recommend to others.

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms adjoining on the 6th floor and were very happy with them.

I have stayed here numerous times and love this hotel. It's a great building right in the heart of the city and within walking distance of everything. Great bar, great restaurant. Great rooms with a view! Everything is awesome except the rip off for parking. Your told $38 which is already ridiculous and more than parking at the ritz and then charged $48. They say the extra ten is tax- have you ever seen a hotel charge tax on parking????? It really makes me not want to stay there anymore. Someone needs to review that! The hotel was only $141 a night!

From the time we pulled up to the front of the hotel to check in until the time we left, the staff was excellent. Check in was a breeze and they even changed our room to a corner room with a view of the Love Park and City Hall. We stayed on the 5th floor where the internet cafe and gym are located. From the valley, front desk, bell hop, room service and bartender, everyone was polite and bid the time of day. Whenever we had questions of nearby restaurants and attractions, the valley helped out. If he was there when we arrived back, he took the time to ask how our adventure was.

Our two children (6yrs and 4yrs) enjoyed that 'grown ups' were taking the time to converse with them. The entire hotel including the rooms, has a modern chic appearance. The rooms are a little small for a family of four but were design well. The door for the bathroom rolled on a track instead of opening in or out (space saver). The beds were comfortable and there were 2 pillows per person (1 fluffy and 1 tamed). The lobby has a few sitting areas to just hang out and talk or drink your coffee. The restaurant has a modern design as well with huge windows that let all the natural light in. The pricing would be our only complaint. There are many other restaurants within walking distance with better pricing and/or amount of food for your money.

We will definitely stay at the Le Meridien when we go back to Philadelphia again. The service alone would bring us back. BTW, don't let other reviews fool you about the parking. There are cheaper parking lots around the corner if you do not plan on using your vehicle. If you are like my family and want to be able to go in and out during the day, then use the hotel parking. Yes, you get charged $40 a day for parking at the hotel but your vehicle is ready for you out front. They ask that you give them 15-20 minutes to retrieve your vehicle. If you plan on going back out within the hour, they will leave it parked out front for your convenience.

To the hotel staff: Thank you from my family for you hospitality!!!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room from the 5th floor and up with an outside view. We had a corner room and we were a...

My son and I stayed at the Meridien for a quick trip to the Franklin Institute and the Barnes. It is well-located just a few blocks from all of the great food at the Reading Terminal and walking distance to both museums. Some of the design choices in the room seem to be more about "look" than "function" and the interior rooms can get to feel a bit claustrophobic since you wouldn't keep the shade up. But overall, it was a very pleasant stay -- comfortable beds -- and the reception area and bellmen were very helpful.

Room Tip: Try to get an exterior room.
