Rated 4 out of 5 by Darek The best choice in Kota Kinabalu
Le Meridien is my favorite brand of Starwood
Beautiful but old hotel, good service - as elsewhere in Asia , good breakfast , excellent upgrade , excellent Le Meridien Club . The best location in K Kinabalu- but is not worth 7000 points per night - hotel should be cat 2

Rated 5 out of 5 by TranceGemini Awesome SPG recognition
It's location at the middle of the action makes it THE place to stay in KK. Plus an awesome SPG recognition prior to arrival. I was pre upgraded in the SPG apps 2 days before arrival, and during check in front desk staff reconfirms the complimentary upgrade to the suite. It was huge! All elite benefits was as advertised, and i can't be any happier than this. All of the staffs are pleasant, good looking & welcoming, truly Sabahan hospitality.
The lounge food during evening refreshment is lacking when compared to Le Meridien KL, also for the breakfast choices. Nice bed in room but poor pillows. I do hope they would change to a firmer pillows after their rejuvenation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeanWilliam Good F&B. But had bad experience on sleep quality.
Stayed 2 nights. F&B was good, service was good as expected. The complimentary coffee in the lounge was a nice touch.
However, sleep quality was disappointing and below expectation. The mattress was a little bouncy. It will be nice if the mattress is more plush.
In addition, did not sleep well for 2 nights due to noisy aircond (audible clicking noises intermittently). Perhaps it is time to change or upgrade the air conditioning.
Overall room is clean but the bathtub has some permanent stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Constance Love its location
Great location! Day and night markets, handicraft market and central market are just around the hotel. Very convenient to shop for local fresh fruits and souvenirs. Shopping malls like Central point are within walking distance. Seafood restaurants are nearby too but cheaper seafood restaurants are slightly further.
Love the espresso and cappuccino. One of the best coffee experience so far.
Staffs are friendly and very informative. I wish to take this opportunity to thank Philip for his patient in answering my enquiries in regards to tourist destinations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZASAP The staff are kind and very friendly
1. When we reached the hotel, we greeted warmly with "Welcome back".
2. Rizan was checking us in. He is excellent. Very friendly, soft spoken and tried his best to give us what we needs as in King Size bed, One Smoking room and One non-smoking room.
3. Another outstanding staff of Le Meridian is Jason. He took care of our luggage safely.
4. The staff at the lounge, one in particular, the young man who served us coffee with honey on 29-02-2012 round 9pm. He wore normal white shirt with glasses. I did not get his name, but that guy is superb. Very seldom waiters served guests coffee with honey on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisWee LeMeridien KK has been my favourite destination hotel
LeMeridien has always makes me feel at home. Lobby staffs especially recognises their regular customer, all staff that i meet or/and call for assistance is very freindly and helpful. This is not just praises to please but eversince I had stayed here since the first time, my family especially and I has never regretted but we always feel at home here in LeMeridien KK. Also LeMeridien is a in a very strategic location in Kota Kinabalu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Azmi Pleasant surprise indeed
Despite my reservation not appeared in the system, I was lucky the rooms are still available. However, the smoking room available only with 2 single beds and the front staff (sorry, could not remember her name) was kind enough to entertain my request for a king size bed. After awhile, she checked me in and I was off to my room. I was pleasantly surprised when the room given to me was actually a suite. A very nice decorated and spacious suite if I may add. Thanks Le Meridien for making your guest feels important. I will definitely come back to this hotel and recommend to my colleagues as well.
