Historical Tour of Philly

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Very cool hotel with mix of old architecture and modern amenities. Rooms are contemporary, bathrooms are spacious with beautiful fixtures. Shower head was clogged with minerals and water pressure was really low. Excellent dinner and brunch menu. No parking garage- cars are valet parked for a lot of $$.

Great hotel - great location

Posted Jul 20, 2015
From little touches like the custom-designed hotel soundtrack and artistic keycards, Le Meridian was a joy to stay. We walked almost everywhere from this location or took the subway. The concierge was very helpful in finding and making appropriate reservations particularly for special diets. THey even upgraded us to a SPG-floor room with a view! Loved it.

Conveniently located, but with many shortfalls

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Location, near Convention Center and downtown attractions like City Hall.
Cons: Air conditioner noise is unbearable, in room personal care amenities not enough for a couple, parking VERY expensive
Location: City Hall, JFK Plaza less than a block away. Old City and Franklin Parkway are within walking distance.
Hotel is conveniently just a block away from Philadelphia Convention Center. Staff is excellent, but rooms are not confortable.

I would also like to thank you for your feedback regarding our air conditioners and bathroom amenities. I have passed that information on to our Chief Engineer and Director of Housekeeping, and assure you those situations will not be an issue the next time you join us. Unfortunately parking rates are out of our control and I apologize if we were unable to articulate the price prior to your arrival. CelsMK, thank you again for choosing us and for providing great feedback!

Perfection

Posted Jun 28, 2015
Stayed at this property after a long day of traveling and every need was met. Everything from the valet service, room upgrade etc was done so with nothing short of perfection.

Nice, renovated hotel in downtown Philly

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Great place for a weekend getaway in central Philly. Rooms are large and comfortable, with nice design and ultra-moderne bathrooms. Great facilities, especially the nice lobby and restaurant. Very, very central, with walking distance to all must-sees in the city. The only con is the awful and expensive parking garage (actually, an outdoors public parking behind the hotel)!!!

Overpriced, small room hotel, located in undesirab

Posted Jun 22, 2015
This hotel is way overpriced, I say this bc the room was very small, no tub, shower only, located in an undesirable location, our view was an abomination, parking extraordinarily high! Bathroom amenities were nothing special or notable, not even sure why they call themselves "boutique"!

Thank you very much for your recent stay at Le Meridien Philadelphia and thank you for your review. I deeply apologize for the inconvenience regarding the prices. The Philadelphia market has been very compressed within the month of June which affected the pricing. The boutique adjective is simply as we are a smaller size hotel rather than the huge convention hotels. The building was built originally as a YMCA in 1902 and became a Starwood property in 2010. We hope to have you back in our hotel in the near future Sincerely Mike Yacoub

Excellent location with attentive and kind staff

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Its location and the staff.
Cons: Soundproofing between rooms.
Location: Close to all of the major attractions in Center City (Reading Market, City Hall, Rittenhouse Sq) and great restaurants.
Le Meridien sits in an outstanding location, steps away from City Hall and Reading Terminal Market, and a stone's throw from Rittenhouse Square. It has a modern, boutique-y vibe, too, if that's your thing. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, and the reasonably-sized room was clean. My lone complaint? Noise. While I certainly don't expect total silence, the walls seemed very thin. I truly could not help but overhear the drunken conversation taking place next door at midnight and again at 4 a.m., making sleep difficult despite the comfort of the room.

Nice Hotel

Posted Jun 2, 2015
We stayed for three nights during our family trip to Philly. The location is a bit sketchy. It's a ten block walk to the historic sights and during the week, there is a big crowd at the District Attorney (?) Courthouse that you have to pass by with cops posted, etc. It is a short walk in the opposite direction to the Franklin Institute and Academy of Natural Sciences. The hotel was a bit trendy for my taste, but the staff, especially the valet and bell men, are so friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and clean. One night, there was a party in the room next door and we could hear everything until the wee hours. With two small children, this was an inconvenience, but this is not the fault of the hotel. Just know that if you are traveling with children, this might not be the hotel for you. I felt it caters more toward business travelers and young couples. Oh, and valet is $48 a night, so keep that in mind.
