Nice view of the back of a hillPosted Aug 9, 2013
Pros: High quality rooms and good Starwood 'W' style decor, quite modern and international.
Cons: Absence of taxis. There were about 5 groups queued up waiting....
Location: Xiamen has plenty to do. This hotel is located about 10-15 mins from downtown.
Good quality hotel, rooms very comfortable. It is a bit off the beaten path, meaning taxis can be hard to get when it rains (which is often). Hotel was chosen as it was close to the airport since we were arriving late evening. The taxi driver however chose to come the long way round (ah well, that;s taxi drivers the world over). Staff very helpful too. Nice balcony attached to the room.

Great - highly recommend itPosted Mar 18, 2013
Pros: The bed and bathroom
Cons: price of food in the hotel dining room - outrageous!
Location: Slightly out of the way, maybe ten minutes extra to some places, but taxis are very cheap so no issue.
Hi Le Meridien is a terrific hotel - very comfortable - very high quality beds! The staff are great too - very helpful and friendly. If you get a massage at the hotel, I recommend Erin - who works between the Westin and Le Meridien. My only criticism is the horrifying price of the food and mini bar in the hotel - higher than Monaco! Eat outside of the hotel. Here's a tip - there is a huge modern shopping centre in the city - I think it is called SM or something like that, with a terrific selection of restaurants - in the non-brand building (there is one building with the big brands and one without). There are 2 good quality restaurants per floor (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, including an excellent peking duck place) and on the top floor is a cheap food court with a massive selection of very cheap chinese food.

Great hotel, great location, but only 1 breakfastPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very nice hotel, beautiful gym, pool and facilities, but was very surprised to get a rate for a double occupancy room with only one breakfast. I don't know if it was the Meridien or Hotels.com that did that. Also, I only earned 250 starpoints for this stay for one night. That was a surprise.

Very nice hotel but lacking quality peoplePosted Dec 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
I like the hotel itself very much. The location is a bit out of the way but that's not really a problem. My biggest gripe is the lack of individuals who understand customer service in this hotel. From front desk to food service people, they are pretty much clueless. The restaurant serves very good breakfast but lunch, dinner and room service was not good. The dinner buffet foods felt like the food has been sitting out for hours. I ordered room service (2 eggs) and had it sent back. How can you mess up eggs? But it was inedible. The front desk staff, other than the Russian trainee who did everything she can to help out, doesn't really understand customer service. Maybe it's a language barrier since most seemed to not understand English very well.

Xiamen Le MeredienPosted Sep 17, 2012
Pros: spa/pool area
Cons: checking out process is always time consuming - but i have never had a speedy one in any chinese city...
Location: location is not too far away from the airport and is in a resort setting with quite a bit of property - taxi distance to city center
Hotel is fantastic, clean and beautiful. The rooms are modern and everything is very non-confrontational. This may lean toward giving the hotel little chatacture, but for a nice relaxing pleasnt stay it was great. What really stood out however was the gym/spa/pool area. Simply outstanding. The indoor pool is huge, so is the hot "tub" right next to was more pool size as well. In the locker rooms are a sauna, steam room and cold dip which makes things really comfortable especially after a long trip. The only downside is that the location is a bit distant from the city center, but this is a resort so it is expected.

Le Meridian, Xiamen - perfectionPosted Jun 17, 2012
Pros: It's difficult to choose one favouite but it is probably the helpfulness of the staff
Cons: I kept slipping on the bathroom floor :-)
Location: The hotel is on a small mountain in a peaceful setting. It is remote from the city but the hotel provide free transport to the ferry
I was there for 12 nights and cannot find anything to complain about The hotel staff were always very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is on a small mountain and the location is beautiful and quiet. It is remote from the city but they provide free transport up and down the mountain and to the ferry port from where you have easy access to anywhere on the island The room was spacious and clean. We had a club room which had free wifi and access to a club lounge (which served breakfast and evening food and drink) and was really comfortable. We always ate in the club lounge so cannot comment about the restaurant food I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and cannot wait to stay there again Thank you for making my stay in Xiamen so wonderful

Internet is a rip-off.Posted Dec 6, 2010
I have to say, I was not excited about this hotel stay. I was expecting a beautiful hotel room, and the room was very nice, however the water smelled quite strongly from the taps (bath was therefore a little unpleasant). Room was clean, but Internet was not included. On the expedia ad, it stated that the internet was included- imagine my surprise when I was charged a ridiculous amount of money (15% of the room cost nearly) to connect to the internet. I firmly believe that all business hotels should have free internet access. When I spoke to the hotel at checkout, I showed them how the expedia ad stated free internet, they agreed to waive the fee- days later I was contacted by the hotel manager (who was unavailable at the time of my checkout- as was the manager on duty) who explained that they were going to charge my card for the internet. Considering I stayed there 3 days, and frequently travel to China, I found the nickel and dimeing exhausting. I would not stay there again for this reason. I think that you can find better value for money, and would recommend the metropark xiamen in it's place- breakfast is included there...
