Excellent location in the heart of Philadelphia
Some complained of issues with service and the rooms
This Le Méridien outpost gets high marks from recent guests for its fantastic location in the heart of Philadelphia. From the hotel's front doors, guests are right across the street from JFK Plaza and can take a short walk to reach the Reading Terminal Market and Rittenhouse Square. The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Philadelphia Art Museum are also a short drive away. Business travelers will appreciate this property too as it's located next to the Philadelphia Convention Center. While visitors appreciated Le Méridien's prime address, some guests had mixed reviews of the rooms, citing housekeeping, cosmetic or maintenance issues. Accommodations here are dressed in primarily neutral shades, including white and gray, with some pops of color in the furniture. Amenities include pillow-top mattresses, in-room coffee makers, complimentary bottled water, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi. Outside the rooms you'll find a fitness center and Amuse, the hotel's on-site, French-inspired restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some were pleased with how tasty the hotel's food was, while others complained of the slow service during breakfast. Despite some shortcomings, many guests agreed that the staff they interacted with were courteous and friendly.

Critic Reviews



The 10-story hotel occupies an old YMCA built in 1908 and has maintained some of the original architectural character, such as ornate woodwork lining the archways of the airy lobby. The contrast between the building's inherent charm and Le Méridien's modern decor comes off smoothly.


Le Méridien's rooms are sleek and a little retro, with white ruched bedspreads, 1950s-style gray cushioned chairs, shiny black-and-white patterned wardrobes, gray carpets, and rich red floor-to-ceiling curtains. Because it's a historic building, the room layouts are all slightly different.



Serving as the former YMCA and district attorney's office, this hotel proves to be a contemporary, adaptive reuse of a historic building. City Hall and Love Park are nearby.
