Rated 3 out of 5 NIce but needs some work.
My expectations were not met. I hope it was not the norm for room not being cleaned. Had to call for clean towels. I was asked if I wanted bed made, but I declined. However the staff was very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaime1031 Clean, quiet and comfortable!
The rooms are beautiful! They are tastefully decorated and clean. The bed was very comfy and there were more than enough pillows!! Bath was very nice! The staff was really great and location was fantastic! My brother lives in Philadelphia and I would stay here every time I visit him! My Grandma was traveling with us and she got a handicapped accessible room that was much bigger than the standard room, it was perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zacnlinc Enjoyed my stay but no Wow!
I truly did enjoy my stay at this wonderful hotel. Read several reviews about it and opted to pick it for a few nights while in Philly.
After circling City Hall several times before catching a glimps of the place, I was forced to valet the car out of frustrations trying to find parking elsewhere. That aside was my only really sore spot with the place.
The staff were friendly and knew the city well when asked for directions and food options. The room was nice enough even though it was a side view of the top of some art school and not city hall.
I didn't have time to enjoy the lounge area for a drink while there, but it appeared as though others were doing quite well there each time I passed through.
Overall, I do plan to return to this place and enjoy it more the next time I'm in Philly. It's location is perfect as I was all over Center City, but never too far away from the hotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by patrick99 Would not stay anywhere else
The Le Meridian had everything I wanted; Clean room with a very comfortable bed. Lots of pillows.Large bath with nice size shower. 40" HD tv. Very quiet.
The staff were superb. I am 50 and have somewhat antiquated expectations of service and they exceeded that! The bar was great and so was the food. Valets were hard working and enthusiastic.
There is no where else I would stay in Philly

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyG81 Comfort Away From Home
The hotel's lobby was clean and welcoming. The professionalism instantly made me feel like I was visiting a family member.
The room screamed comfort as soon as I entered. My dilemma was should I stay in the room and relax or go sightseeing? The latter won however I will be back just to stay in the room the entire visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Opie111 Our wedding made wonderful
We were recently married in The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts which is behind the hotel. The staff treated our guests very well. Everyone commented on the hotel, staff and rooms. The bed comfort was the number one remark. They slept like a dream. All in all we were very satisfied and would highly recommend this hotel for groups or individual needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoffeeLover Wonderful ambiance - great location
My coworker recommended I stay here for a meeting I had - and I was absolutely satisfied. The hotel is modern and fun - and the breakfast was wonderful. Staff were welcoming and friendly - and the room was comfortable and quiet.
I travel often for work, and would definitely stay here again as my choice Philadelphia hotel.

We wish to commend the staff at Le Meridien for making our 20th wedding anniversary such a special occasion for us. The room was beautiful, the staff was extremely accommodating and the general manager went out of his way to make our stay special.
My wife and I hope that we can get back soon to relive the experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EnvoyBoy Disappointed
With over 200 nights a year in a hotel room, I have to say in my recollection that this was the only property ever to not have the tv situated so you could NOT see it from your bed. Very odd. It was off to the side of the bed, near your head but even if you rolled over to watch it, a hanging lamp from the ceiling blocked what little view you could get. Evening housekeeping was entirely inconsistent: sometime fresh towels, sometimes not; sometimes trash removed, sometimes not, etc. There was no Plat recognition or benefits, other than the free wifi. Most, but not all, of the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is excellent and bar has some great signature cocktails. Next time in Phila I'd probably go back to the Westin, which is a short walk, but return here for evening drinks and a meal. Location very central, overlooking City Hall in the heart of Center City. (Note also: there are some interior-facing only rooms, if you don't like that sort of thing.)

the front desk was great. It was a nice touch to have a small glass of champagne why we were waiting to check in. The only complaint that I had which is minor the doorman and valet need to know a little better of the local area. They told us our resturant was 4 blocks away and it turned out to be 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HotEticket Beautiful, historic building
We were in a suite that was very spacious, however included a handicap shower. It was impossible keeping the water within the shower, so many towels were needed to capture the water. Air conditioning vents were very dirty, which we requested be cleaned, and they were somewhat, just not thoroughly.

very nice hotel stay. esply liked the "don't clean this room" option, with its $10 credit incentive. (it's nice to get rewarded for going green.) what wd be helpful: hooks in the bathroom; nitestands and lamps on BOTH sides of a queen bed; a nitelite in the bathroom.

Excellent physical property, love the exposed brick. The elevators need some attention as there shouldn't be a 10 minute wait at 5am. Wish the bathroom had a bath tub but overall excellent room, great in room coffee.

Great location, decor, and service. Hands down my favorite in Philly. If only the price was more reasonable, more often I would stay there all the time. I have stayed in 75+% of the Hotels in downtown Philly.

Rated 2 out of 5 Disappointed
I was disappointed with my stay this time. The air in both rooms of the suite blows right in your face in bed or on the sofa. The air control is ridiculous as it turns off when you are not moving, like sleeping! I like feather pillows, hotel does not have any. Room was not cleaned well as when I went to set alarm on radio, radio was full of dust. Called twice to get car 25 minutes early, both times doorman did not get message or failed to get car, had to wait as they just left when I got downstairs and asked for car. Tried to get change of $$$, not very helpful at all. I am used to better service at SPG hotels, not sure I would stay here again.

I was so impressed by your staff. Despite a full house, they actually recognized me by name. I was especially impressed by the entire valet staff. I was in and out multiple times and they were so helpful.
Thank you for a great week
