Review of Le Meridien

Mark Pimble from McLean, VA
Stylish Business Hotel
Checking in to the Le Meridien San Francisco was smooth and efficient: we were greeted by a friendly staff person who told us about the hotel’s amenities and then assisted by a welcoming front desk person who told us about our room. The front desk staff were helpful throughout our stay whenever we stopped by to ask questions. The in-house concierge staff also provided good service and offered recommendations in addition to providing the information we asked for.

While the Le Meridien is definitely a business hotel – all of the services seemed geared to that clientele – it’s more stylish than the usual upscale business property. The hotel has very nice public spaces which seem to have been updated – perhaps when the hotel was rebranded from a Park Hyatt in 2006.

We enjoyed the Bar 333 with its excellent wait staff and interesting bar and drink menu. Breakfast in the Park Grill was relaxing and delicious, but you pay a price for that enjoyment: the cost of breakfast made us wish it had been included in our nightly rate.

We had a Junior Suite with a city view: the room included a spacious, modern bathroom (with pleasant Le Meridien-branded toiletries), a very comfortable bed and a living room separated from the sleeping area by a built-in television, dresser, safe, mini-bar unit. We were impressed by the sliding door that opened, allowing us to get fresh air in the room, and the nice views of the city and bridges/bay in the distance.

The Le Meridien is a welcoming, friendly, comfortable hotel and we enjoyed our visit. While it may not be as special as some of its competition (San Francisco is a city of fine hotels), it’s a good choice for both business and leisure travelers and we recommend it.
