Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigfoot95 A great hotel in the future
In it's day, Le Meridien was a great hotel, and I am sure it will be again in the future when all the work is done. The number of outlets is currently greatly reduced by the renovations going on, and access to the beach and pool is only through the coffee shop and we feel that customers should be made aware of this on the website.We were also unaware that the room we booked did not have a balcony as requested and had to upgrade to get this facility. Our booking also said the room had 'direct beach access' - only when we arrived did we discover that none of the rooms are near the beach so this is something of a misnomer! However, all in all our stay was made pleasant by the warm and welcoming, and very helpful, staff and we were able to overlook the inconveniences. The location is good being in close proximity to the Abu Dhabi Mall, other hotels and no great distance from other malls and the corniche, and, in spite of ongoing roadworks, not too difficult to access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EtihadFirstClass Great Staff and Decor
I had a two day transit in Abu Dhabi and chose this SPG hotel. All the staff were warm, professional, and helpful including Mr. Singh who checked me in; Ismael, the bellman who escorted me to my room; Maggie, the hostess at the Talay restaurant for breakfast; Ganni in the Royal Club; and Gerald, the Royal Club Supervisor. A sincere thank you to all of them. :)
Decor at the hotel was great and restaurants are being remodeled/added. Good Business Center and computers in the Royal Club.
My only complaints are that I didn't see a clock in my room and I didn't know how to turn off the light over the painting in my room (other than turning off the master switch), though this might be due to my genetic limitations.
The hotel is convenient to the airport bus (which even I can afford) and a shopping mall.
I hope to return someday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Philo63 NIce hotel, currently going through some renovation
Many of the restaurants are going through a renovation, so the inner garden area is a bit chaotic at the time. Hopefully the rooms will be next on the list of things to be fixed, some of them starting to show their age. Apart from that it's always nice to come back to Le Meridien with it's excellent staff and good location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zulfee Unsatisfactory Staff responsive ness
The staff, esp the house keeping are unresponsive, they need to be more attentive to the guests, who expects a good treatment.The bathrooms are really very congested.
The location of the hotel is great, near to all the busy malls and the beach.
