Rated 5 out of 5 by Kait4499 Excellent hotel and staff!
I stayed here for 5 nights for a work trip. The room was lovely and comfortable. The food was fantastic. And the staff went out of their way to be helpful. I will be staying here again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBill Best of Philly SPG
Philadelphia has a wide range of SPG products and we have stayed in basically all of them, We prefer this one for several reasons - it is a great location, the restaurant is top notch as a Bistro and for breakfast. The staff looks after you in the hotel. The hotel is surprisingly quiet and the bar has excellent prices (PA is notable for near-Utah liquor laws). A converted YMCA, there are all sorts of sizes and shapes for the rooms, we have stayed here at least 10 times now and have seen all types up to and including a 2 BR suite. The hotel is true to the Le Méridien French roots with a Euro feel to it.

Use this hotel for business travel quite frequently. Love the coffee in the morning and the proximity to everything in the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYgal53 Right in the heart of the city
Location could not be beat, just around the corner from PAFA, walking distance to the Barnes, the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Reading Market.
The room was lovely, but I was not particularly thrilled with the bedding. The bed had a down type quilt on it, nothing else. No top sheet, no light weight blanket. I was either too warm with the quilt, or uncomfortable with no covering at all.
Had we stayed more than one night, I would have asked housekeeping for something else, but we only stayed the one night.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jj73 A little disappointing
I reserved a room here for my anniversary. I called in advance to see if I could get an upgrade to a larger or nicer room and got no response. I also called to have a bottle of champagne delivered to the room and got no response.
I really wanted to make this a special night away as my wife and I never have a chance to get a hotel night away together. I tried to make it a little special with an upgraded room, given my platinum status, and a bottle but staff was unresponsive. Thus making the rating a little disappointing and an average stay.
I expected a little more than I experienced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HopSingPreDestiny Hip and Relaxing
Amidst the chaos that came with a sold out LeMeridan due to the Philadelphia Flower show (I did not partake of the show), the staff performed like it was a well oiled machine. This is not your blue-haired, stuffy, smug, paisley and gold inlay draped hotel...oh no...it's hip, new-age, and you recognize it the moment you walk into the lobby. Sure it might be camouflaged in the old YMCA building but the updated features make this place fresh. Try Amuse and ask for Michael or have a sip at the bar and ask for Willie to make you a cocktail that's right on par with the speakeasy that have been sprouting around the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FiDiBrian Wonderful, unique hotel
Typically unique and beautiful Le Meridien. Despite a sell-out, staff was able to find me a wonderful suite as a Platinum SPG member. Staff is attentive and in-room dining was very good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by edthead Not worth the money
Very expensive for what you get. Hotel needs to get their own parking Garage. outrageous parking rates. Hotel is right next door to an active courthouse where the public line up early for their court dates and criminals are brought in chains to court. The Hotel does have secure elevators that require pass keys to operate. Oh and the free papers in the morning were great. For some reason they have mounted their large flat screens at a 90 degree angle to the bed instead of on the wall at the foot of the bed. My wife was impressed with the new age décor. We stayed on the 8th floor and it was very quiet even with the building under construction next door. We stayed 5 nights total and the hotel left us a nice note on our next to last day that we could express check out by coming down that day, but when I tried it, we could only pay for the first 4 days and still would have to go check out for the last day. For me that just wasn't an express checkout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by francophilly room with no view
Overall i like this hotel a lot. However, as an SPG member, and having made reservation in advance, was disappointed to receive a very small room on the back with view of adjacent building wall less than 10 feet away. We were on a corporate discount/rate but dont think that should put us in the worst rooms.
The bathroom did not have a make-up mirror as in other rooms I have stayed in at this property.
Check-in staff exceptionally friendly and helpful,
excited about giving advice on where to visit, things to see. Acknowledged past stays and SPG status.
I wish the bar had a better vibe, was more of a place to be. It has a lot of potential, beautiful space, lots of seating...

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSS12 Excellent Hotel for Center City (Downtown Area)
I stayed 3 days 2 nights on business and the entire stay was an absolute pleasure. The staff were friendly and eager to help out with directions and restaurant recommendations. Gym was small but adequate. Only issue is that they charge $10 per day for wifi - I think this should be free at this point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by adg77 fine, not great, and not 4 stars
I stayed here using a Living Social deal. It was fine for the price we paid for the room, but I would be unhappy had we paid full price.
Cons: 1) Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, even though it was after check-in time. Apparently there was a problem with pillowcases not being dry. Not sure why that should delay our check-in, especially when we said we were in a big hurry.The staff was very nice and apologetic, but we ended up being an hour late to our event due to this delay.
2) Valet parking was $48! We didn't find out until we checked out. There were no signs or prices. I admit that it was our fault for not asking.
3) We had incredibly slow service at breakfast the next morning, even though the restaurant was about 25% full.
4) Minor point, but an inconvenience: no mirror in the room--just in the bathroom.
Pros: Clean, quiet, central location, nice city views, very cool old building with modern updates. Did not check out gym or business center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DuaneD81 Mailed my forgotten item to me immediately
Kudos to the front desk and housekeeping staff, especially Carrie Harrington, Director of Housekeeping, for finding and mailing my forgotten e-reader to me by express mail. They called me within hours of my checkout and had placed the forgotten Kindle in the mail the first business day. Thanks so much -- I have lost so many of these in my busy travels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wigstheome Excellent Location; Comfortable and Dependable
Checked in on a Saturday afternoon. Front of the house was friendly, efficient, and courteous. Was immediately offered an upgrade upon check-in to a very nice suite (946) without asking (as a Platinum). The suite itself faced into the interior of of the hotel but was spacious and comfortable, From the hotel it is an easy walk to nearby restaurants, clubs, shopping, and museums.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JGiraffe Great Downtown Philadelphia Hotel
I highly recommend the Le Meridien.
I've never stayed at a Le Meridien property but man was I blown away.
Bed is very very comfortable
Interior decor is a mix of retro/new age and it gives off a very trendy style
Walking out of the hotel elevators is probably the most jaw dropping experience I've had. Reminds you of France with the faux bricks on the inside.
If you're unlucky you MIGHT get a smaller sized room. I managed to get a pseudo-suite which was very large and comfortable.
Like every downtown Philadelphia hotel, parking can be a bit pricey so be ready for that as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gatorinjersey Best Location in Philly; Cool Hotel Too
The location and decor of this hotel are perfect. Check-in was very easy and pleasant. The bellman and front desk staff were exceptionally nice. The decor is an interesting mix of old and modern. From Le Meridien you can easily walk to any and all interesting sites in Philly. Stay here when you're in the City of Brotherly Love. This is THE place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by William01 Simply the best
I visited Philadelphia on a romantic getaway with my girlfriend and I was probably the most fantastic trip we ever had without any faux pas.
What I really enjoyed:
1- Friendly staff. Great concierge
2- Great Breakfast (May be the only downside is that they had no fresh pain au chocolat.
3- Very convenient location
4- Great upgrade
