Rated 3 out of 5 by JTF3 Had several issues on this stay
As a Ambassador level platinum guest I would expect a better room than one with (2) double beds. The drawers for clothing did not stay closed. The shower pull came off in my hands every time I used it. Room key did not work several times during a three night stay

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skye30 Great accommodation in the city..with great city vibe
Every aspect of Le Meridien Hotel reflects an upscale lifestyle, the guest rooms are stylish, the food is delicious and the location provided the best that the city has to offer, with easy access to all we had planned to do for a weekend in Philadelphia. From the time we got out of the cab, the valet staff and checking in the staff were pleasant. The room and bathroom were spacious, clean, modern with a comfortable bed. Had one of the best sleep ever in a hotel. We walked to Reading Market for lunch and on Sunday took a city tour. Overall, pleased with the hotel's whole presentation, the staff and the food... will definitely stay again and recommend to anyone going to Philadelphia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lbennett Excellent Service
I am a frequent traveler and always choose Le Meridien Philadelphia when I have the option. The staff takes every opportunity to make guests feel welcome, and the service is incredibly personalized. Zafar, one of the room service runners, always strives to provide the highest level of service, remembering every preference of his guests. This is just one example of the great service at Le Meridien, and I recommend this hotel to everyone traveling in the area.

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.

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 3 out of 5 by SuzyNY Meh...
I have to say I expected more from Le Meridien. My stay wasn't exactly bad, it just didn't live up to my expectations for a SPG Category 5 hotel.
- The hotel is in a good location
- The staff members that I did interact with seemed pleasant
- The bed was very comfortable
- The service could use improvement. Our room wasn't cleaned until I asked for it to be. When I returned to my room, I found that I was only given bath towels (none of the smaller towels), and the coffee service wasn't refreshed. I called and asked for it to be and was assured someone would stop by, but nobody ever did.
- The room service food is pretty gross. The onion soup was too sweet and arrived cold, and my french fries were soggy. I would have been better off going to the Panera down the street for food.
- The room was pretty sparse and not what I'd expect from an 'elite' hotel. Also, there was only one garbage can in the room (in the bathroom) which was annoying, and the TV had awful reception.

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.
