Rated 2 out of 5 by Coco57 Two stays, three rooms, one big disappointment
This review is based upon two stays within a ten day period, paid by SPG points, Gold level.
High expectations based on location, reviews and SPG previous experiences weren't even close to met. SPG reservations agent error resulted in wrong room class reserved. Hotel front desk staff "couldn't" resolve, but grudgingly "upgraded" for the next day. Even if I'd actually reserved the tiniest room in the house, my expectation as a longtime SPG member is a room upgrade upon check-in. Tiny, worn, outdated twin room was traded "up" for a tiny, worn, not quite as outdated King room our second day. (We did have a view of a slice of the Millenium Eye.) Worst SPG experience ever - we may as well have reserved through one of the bargain hotel websites as for being acknowledged for loyalty and $$$ spent with Starwood.
Different front desk staff, definite improvement in our first impression. Upgraded Junior Suite provided more space, but as many other reviewers have commented, this shabby property is in need of freshening. Bell staff was very kind, retrieving our stored luggage, prompt with adapters - thank you. Luckily our closet was spacious, with the only decent lighting in the room, so I had somewhere to do my makeup and hang everything! No bureau, so the suitcase had to stay out as a place to store everything else. Never refilled our minibar, and no one ever mentioned a guest lounge? Still - an improvement over last visit, but we will not return or recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2100Family Classic hotel, Super-central, Great breakfast
Stayed 5 nights in mid-October with my family (wife, 2 kids). This was our 3rd stay here. Aside from best location!!, we also love the breakfast in the atrium-style restaurant. I called SPG and booked via phone. Really good service from SPG since they contacted the hotel in parallel to check some special requests that we had. We booked a junior suite incl. full breakfast. (not cheap… – it’s London!!!!). Applied to use my SPG-Platinum suite upgrade certificates, and it was confirmed 4 days ahead of our arrival. Was in touch with Stephanie in the Guest Liaison Team who was very helpful and responsive reg. room/suite-requests (subj. to availability as always). Stephanie had done her best, and upon check-in we were assigned a really nice, spacious and cosy suite with a stunning view of London. So… - expensive, but the personal assistance and the SPG-upgrade really made the whole difference. Memorable (also because I made it to SPG Lifetime Platinum during this very stay!!!)

I would just like to thank Le Meridien for my sons recent stay there. I would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to come to London to visit. The rooms, staff, location and facilities are second to none. I stay in hotels for 6 month of the year and this is by far one of my favourites. A huge thank you to all the staff for their continued hard work.
A VERY satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bastyon Convenient London Hotel
Let me start by saying that I am absolutely not a fan of Piccadilly Circus and most of the surrounding main streets in the area.
Having said that, Le Meridien is very convenient to most things you'd need in London.
The hotel itself is very well managed and the rooms are spacious, beds are good, pillows the same and the staff have always been accommodating.
I've stayed at Le Meridien a number of times through work in the past few years and it's always been a good experience.
There's lots of good things to see if you continue down Piccadilly towards Park Lane. The proximity to Hawksmoor in Air Street is also a very good thing, since you'll probably be hard pressed to get a better steak in London.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan1 Great Location, Nice Gym and Club Lounge
I have been staying at Le Meridien Piccadily over 10 times and it is one of my favorit hotels in London. it has great locations . Many coffee shops and fine resturants around. Ask for the1st floor renovated rooms. Juinor suite #112 is beautifully designed and one of the best suite in the hotel. the hotel benefit from a professional Gym ( including good size swiming pool) which is a big plus. Business lounge is nice and service is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taurus80 Wonderful hotel, great location.
This is a great hotel in a central location, ideal for shops, theatre and galleries. We picked this hotel for a special birthday celebration and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and attentive and made our stay special and memorable. The lounge bar is nice and the terrace restaurant where we had a very nice buffet breakfast was lovely. We will definitely stay again.
