Le Méridien touts itself as putting "European glamor" back into staying in a hotel. The only thing European about it is the fake French name and that they offer you a glass of prosecco when you check in. Somewhere there's written in their guest literature that if a guest doesn't want prosecco they'll be offered a sorbet, but no one seemed to know anything about that (I don't drink alcohol). So, I was offered a cheap plastic bottle of water (why not a nice glass bottle of "European" sparkling or mineral water?) They also offer a free cappuccino every morning between 6:30am and 10:30am, but every morning when I went down to the lobby and asked for one, they said to go to the bar. However, there was never anyone staffing the bar at that time of day, so that was also a lost cause. For a place that promotes itself as "European" and "glamorous", Le Méridien falls far short. It's a faux European boutique sheen placed over a run-of-the-mill urban hotel trying to be something that it's not.

The staff was great. Very helpful and pleasant to talk to. The mattress was a little too soft and the tub didn't hold water but both issues could be overlooked easily.
