Rated 5 out of 5 by Nate85 Great hotel in SF
I have stayed at this hotel a handful of times and it always has been a pleasure to stay at. They always upgrade my rooms as a platinum member and the check in is always fast and easy. The hotel bar is a great place for cocktails as the bartenders make great drinks. The rooms are very updated and have very nice décor. Its a great place to stay for business or pleasure and the location is great to get to a lots of SF hotspots. I look forward to staying here again in the future. The staff is always very nice and friendly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LakshmanLL Surprised, not in a good way
I had traveled all the way from India and East Coast for a company meeting at this property last week. I had an early check-in (helpful staff) and went up to 20th floor to realize that the room was not cleaned after the previous guest check-out. Needless to say it wasnt a pretty sight.
Went for a walk, returned and realized that the keys would'nt work. I accumulated about 6-8 keys against my name in 2 days with all the key trouble.
Woke up at 3 am due to jet lag and found that the room didnt have a coffee maker! There is no spot (lobby or otherwise) housing a pot of coffee...!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steph972 Wonderful staff
Hotel was great except for a few maintenance issues. The toilet ran almost non stop. In water deprived California this surprised me And a very very minor issue was a light with a burned out bulb. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The room was a bit noisy even on the 16th floor but that was part of being downtown in a big city. I was surprised at the limited restaurant facilities but our needs were met.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillN Business Meridien
This hotel overall feels more “business” and less “tourist” although it works for both. By Meridien standards, rooms tend toward bland and sparsely furnished, but mine was comfortable and fully functional. I appreciated the multiple outlets on the nightstand (this included a direct USB charger) as well as a Bluetooth-enabled radio. The Park Grill is the most inviting of the public spaces but curiously this restaurant is open only for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is confined to the very lively bar; this being San Francisco, it becomes a hardship only in the event rains return to California. A nice feature is a landscaped elevated walkway which extends several blocks to the Embarcadero; no need to cross streets. Light sleepers should also note that there’s a fire company around the corner; consider that source of street noise when choosing a room at check in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveandBarbara Awesome views and decor
We were upgraded to a 20th floor room overlooking the bay. Fantastic view and an unbelievably beautiful, and clean room. Loved it!! The staff was friendly and helpful. The only strange occurrence was after we checked in, the staff came to our room looking to inventory the bar? Told her no need to come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IainJ Excellence throughout!
I've been on business trips to San Francisco multiple times but this hotel trip stands out. The gourmet food and drinks were just the prelude to the amazing view of the bridge from my room. The staff were exceptionally friendly and supportive. All in all, a memorable experience!

We stayed here for only one evening and it was heaven! The staff went out of their way to accommodate is during our short stay. The beds were unbelievable! Your body melts once you hit the sheets. The rooms views were incredible. We will definitely be back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by garza111 Le Meridean San Francisco falls short of expected SPG standards
This was a shocking experience. I am a Starwoods reward member for 13 years and have stayed in SPG hotels all over the world.
We arrived mid morning and were able to check in earlier, great. We checking into the room and the small sliding glass door had cigarette butts thrown all around the small opening crack. I brought this to the attention of the house cleaner who said she would clean it up, but seriously, how is that not taken care of immediately.
When we returned to the room mid afternoon, our heads were rattling form the jack hammer construction a floor or 2 above. I called immediately front desk and was told I would have room changed. I asked to have the duty manager come up to the room to experience this terrible noise. The manager that came up to the room was also shown the filth all over the hallway carpeting from construction on a room 3 doors down. She said it was not her responsibility but would make sure this was brought to the attention of the proper manager. When I asked how a guest could make a reservation and be checked in and not told about possible renovation problems, she said she was sorry.
We were moved up to the 18th floor, which was away from the noise and a newly renovated room, which we appreciated. But this is no way to communicate with guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NDuzzi Great Staff and New Room
My fiancee and I stayed here recently and we couldn't be happier. As a Platinum member, they upgraded us to a brand new suite with a bay view balcony. They're in the process of revamping all the rooms and you will not be disappointed.
We checked out for 2 days and went up to Napa, prior to leaving we asked for the same room upon returning and they had no problem giving it to us. Finally, our flight got canceled (we live in Boston) and they extended us, again without having to move rooms.
The lobby and front desk staff we're great, always greeted with a smile and they remembered who we were.
While it is in the financial district, we walked pretty much everywhere we wanted to go; COIT Tower, Fishermans Wharf, Union Sq, China Town, North Beach...ect, ect. Granted, some of these places are over a mile away so be prepared but it is a great place to stay if you're willing to take a trek (given all the great food in SF, we needed it!).
Look forward to coming back to see these folks again

Rated 3 out of 5 by flan164 Not the Westin
The lobby of the hotel was nice, but for Starwood it was one of the worst I've stayed in. Again, that is for Starwood so I'm probably splitting hairs. The restaurant was awful and we left before our meal even arrived. staff was unfriendly and lazy. Felt as if we were "putting them out" in ordering lunch. Rooms are small and oddly shaped. Hotel is old and while its been updated it leaves ALOT to be desired. Stay at the Westin Market St. I know I will from now on.. its much nicer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Reverend69 My hotel room was disgusting
The room was dirty. A dirty sock was left in the room from a former guest in the room. The sofa have cigarettes burn, the sofa have stains. The shower and tub was not cleaned. I was officiating my sons wedding and that add to my discomfort .
The staff was not courteous, the staff did not offer me another room. The staff offer me breakfast. I would not recommend the Le Meridien to my worst enemy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaRae Surpassed Our Expectations
Our room was beautiful. The bay view was amazing. It was my husband's birthday and it turned out to be the perfect celebration. We loved the location of the hotel--such a short walk to the Embarcadero, North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square and much more. We enjoyed the Bar 333 and the Park Grill in the hotel.
Josiah checked us in. He was so helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We credit him for our very positive experience at Le Meridien. We look forward to a return visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jplc Be aware of thin walls
Pro: Staffs are generally accommodating and responsive.
Con: Walls are super thin, you can literally hear everything next door- and the people staying next door weren't even that loud. There will be no privacy. Period. I was awaken several times during the night because of the noise from next door.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel 4 times in the past 5-6 years. We love the quietness, and location. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the Embacdero and Saturday Farmer's Market. From the desk, concierge, housekeeping, and restaurant staff are exceptional.GM Mr. Bobba was so kind to send us a nice bottle of wine, flowers, fruit, and olives to acknowledge us as loyal guests. He also assigned us a beautiful corner room on the top floor. It was just a perfect hotel experience for 5 days all around. We are looking forward to future visits at your remarkable hotel. The recent renovation of the lobby and bar are also great improvements. Thank you for your genuine hospitality !!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DesignGuy949 My favourite new SF Hotel
After staying many times at other SPG properties nearby I must say I'm so happy I finally stayed at Le Meridien. This will be my number 1 selection for future leisure and biz trips. I loved the staff and most of the decor and our room was fantastic. Quiet and with a great view of the Bay Bridge. The location isn't as perfect to BART but I found that to be a minimal bother as it helped me discover new places and access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EBB3 Great location, responsive staff
Location is great for family vacationing, even though it is in the financial district.
Had a minor problem (sliding glass door to outside was off tracks, so it would not close) immediately after checking in. Night manager and staff responded quickly and fixed the problem in my suite, and also provided a room service credit for my problems.
Concierge (DK) was great in helping my family on our vacation. His help included identifying things to do, buying tickets, and recommending restaurants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dtinker Amazing hotel room
My girlfriend and I went to San Francisco for our anniversary. We were given a hotel room upgrade and free drinks coupons to their wonderful bar (333 Bar). Our room was amazing! It was a corner room with a balcony that faced the Bay Bridge. We could see the LED light show on the bridge at night and the water front as well. The only bad thing was there were protesters at 7 am one morning with a blow horn, but we were already awake. The bathroom was great too. It had a shower and separate bath tub, and the water pressure was bliss. I loved the hotel location because it was downtown. My girlfriend and I loved to walk downtown and we were only a few minutes from Little Italy and China town. I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying here again.
