Rated 4 out of 5 by gster78 Terrific hotel in Taipei
Lovely hotel - nice design, and lots of great art to take in. The food is also very good here, and the location is very central as well. Highly recommend, and would definitely stay here again.

There is insufficient storage space for clothing in the room - too few drawers for loose items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brideshead no breakfast amenity + restaurants booking problems
This is a high standard hotel however SPG members need to be aware that the free breakfast amenity for platinum members is not available at this hotel. Perhaps if I had known this before checking in I would have changed to a different hotel. Also the buffet restaurant is extremely popular with local patrons and we were told that bookings had to be made weeks in advance. This caused some inconvenience to our party since we had expected to eat at the hotel. So while overall the experience at LM was very good my advice is to be be prepared for less good performance in terms of the F&B service.

We stayed for five nights at this hotel. We recieved great service by the concierge staff: Hans since we arrived at the hotel. He made us feel welcomed and safe. He's very professional and helped us with restaurant reservations with top notch effiency!!
We travel all over the world and have stayed in many 5 star hotels. This is a hotel that lives to its name. We will definately return and would recommend it to anyone.
Btw, the restaurants in the hotel are worth a try!! Good food!

Had a three night stay at this property and was very impressed.
Upgraded to a suite which was a good size, well appointed and well maintained. Didn't really like the brown colour scheme - but that is strictly a personal preference.
The bathroom was also a good size but disappointingly had a rather meagre showerhead.
All staff were very friendly and helpful. Used the car service to and from the airport which was also efficient.
Breakfast was also quite good with a solid range of options. The staff at breakfast were also very good. For whatever reason on my final morning there was no pineapple juice on display - but the senior staff member brought me a glass unprompted mentioning he had noticed I prefer it. Such attention to detail is always appreciated.
Starwood fans are spoilt for choice in this amazing city - but won't be disappointed if they pick this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by therabidcow Magnificent Hotel... Great Service!
This is surely our favourite hotel in Taipei! It has a great location and the staff is friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.
Our room (at the very corner of the hotel) was great! It has all the modern amenities and has a view of the Taipei 101 that is to die for.
Although I was at a conference, the hotel served as a good base for my wife to do her shopping as well :)

I visit a lot of hotels all over the world and a lot of them are nice. Nice building, nice rooms, nice resturant, nice facilities, nice people. But the Le Meridien in Taipei is my favorite. What's the difference ?
The people at Le Meridien are making the differnce: truly friendly, authentic in a way exceptionally, warm, make me feel somehow coming home.
When i hear "welcome back Mr, Schwarz, when someone of your staff is opening the taxi door, that is exceptional."
You do a great job in training your people in showing hospitality. Exceptional.
All people in almost all hotels are friendly.
But you are exceptional. Great compliment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PatrickN Nice Stay, but could improve
The room was great and amenities fully met my requirements. I travel frequently in Asia and mostly arriving from or departing on long distance flights. One very key requirement for me is how flexible hotels can react to flight plans that don't always match (rigid) hotel checkin / checkout time policies. In the case of the Meridien Taipei this requirement was NOT met. Despite that I had only checked in to the hotel very late at night upon arrival (11pm) my request for a slight extension of the stay to 3 pm was met with a cool "we will have to charge you a half day stay for this". I didn't feel I was a very welcome guest at this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by windowsupordown Great property
This is the first review I have made but to put some perspective behind it, I have stayed over 900 nights in hotels around the globe and would not hesitate to stay here again. Definitely a TOP pick hotel. Everything was new, and very clean. Service was fantastic. Platinum benefits were great which for my stay included:
-upgrade to junior suite
-complementary access to minibar drinks
-executive lounge benefits which had a decent selection of appetizers and fine spirits
-breakfast buffet which was fantastic. great selection to choose from including the great 'eye opener' fruit juice shots.
Other points to mention include the excellent gym (I was the only one there on the occasion I went) great equipment which overlooks street traffic, great steam room, hot cold sauna etc. very, very clean, and very friendly staff. Hotel was in a good location where you can walk to restaurants, shopping and nightlife.
The room itself was pretty cool with impressive lighting, electric curtains, very spacious bathroom and great amenities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ben2012 Convenient location
The property is located right behind Taipei 101, with easy access to shopping and dining. Creative and intriguing design within the hotel for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.
Not too many crowds, quiet environment. Good for business or family.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EWONG Unhappy Experience with Le Meridien Taipei
I have booked Dinner buffet at Latest Recipe Buffet restaurant of 29 Dec 2013 with Le Meridien which confirmed by its returned email on 29 Nov 2013 (one month in advance). On that day, I arrived the restaurant on 6:00pm with my daughter and wife. However, I was informed that we have been arranged to sit in a low sofa seat outside the Latest Recipe Restaurant. I requested to talk to a senior staff to express my dissatisfaction. However, the problem is not fixed immediately. I have no alternative but to leave the restaurant and find where to have my dinner during my Taipei trip. This is out of my expectation for such a worldwide class hotel group like SPG. Very disappointed.

This maybe my sixth visit to Taiwan, and I have stayed at Le Meridien Hotel each time. I have stayed at other Hotel in Taiwan; outside of Taipei but I would prefer Le Meridien.
The staff is very helpful, they recognize me from my previous stay, and they know what I want and need.
I appreciate the late night chocolate cookies, which helps me stay awake through countless emails and conference calls, as well as knowing I prefer Ginger Ale over any other soda. Simple things really, yet easy to forget.
Thanks for always making me feel special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by moimoi39 Hotel Rates
I recently stayed at the Le Meridien Taipei with my family. We booked 1 junior suite and 2 delux rooms for 7 days. . I later found out that the rates were the same even for the weekend stay and asked the front desk why the internet booking was able to give almost 20% lower for weekend rates and they were not able to give us the privilege. I was told that the weekend rates apply only through internet booking which is very uncommon for 5 star hotels were we stayed before. I wanted to check out and rebook through internet and was told need at least 24 hour notice. Finally I had no choice but to accept the condition.
I don't think I will refer or stay in that hotel again after this experience.

When I checked out on last Sunday, concierge could not find my golf traveling bag in the storage room & after thorough investigation, it was unfortunately taken away by another hotel guest to Taichung. The Chief Concierge has taken up the issue immediately and accompanied me to a nearby golf shop to buy a brand new golf traveling bag for replacement at the expense of Le Meridien Taipei. My problem was solved in a timely manner so that I can bring home with all my golf club. Thanks to D. Liao for his kind assistance & keen follow up. I have received an email from him yesterday saying the hotel has retrieved my missing original golf traveling bag from Taichung and they will send it back to my home address via EMS today.

I have stayed at this hotel 4-5 times in the last 2 years. It is an exceptional experience. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The staff, and I refer to all of the staff that I have come into contact with at Le Meridien Taipei are exceptional. Absolutely everyone has a "can do, will do" attitude with regards to every greeting and any request a guest may have. The dining is also a wonderful experience that caters to every taste and culture regardless of where one might call "home".

I travel frequently throughout the Asia region and Europe and consistently stay at hotels in the SPG group.
Of all the hotels I have encountered, the service provided by the staff at Le Meridien Taipei is by far the BEST I have ever encountered. The front desk team are always there with a smile to assist in even the most mundane of questions/requests.
For me this is my home away from home. Highly recommend for business travelers or even those who are in Taipei for a weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andersen66 Some details need refining or care
There is no clearly identified note on the desk or bed side phones specifying the hotel contacts like phone no and address.
Also, I asked for and was confirmed late check out at 3 pm. But when I got back to the room at 2:55 pm. The room key already did not work, which then made me call front desk to open up. Not very thorough and considerate service that I would have expected.
Can consider renovating the swim pool to increase sunlight penetration.
