We recently spent 5 nights at the Meridien in Piccadilly and overall would say that our stay was enjoyable. We used Starwood points for a junior suite and paid extra for use of the club lounge. On the positive side, we found all the staff we dealt with were professional and helpful, the lounge staff were particularly a pleasure to deal with. The Club Lounge had an excellent array of beverages and food available throughout the day in additional to the Happy Hour in the evening. As the location is so central it was a perfect place for a quick pick-me-up in between shopping expeditions or sightseeing. The pool was large and deep enough to swim in as well as being mostly empty. I didn't use the exercise room but it also looked well-equipped and the staff in the pool/gym area again were also very nice to deal with. Our suite was equipped with tea and coffee making equipment which was most appreciated and, even better, had some shortbread snacks which were restocked daily. On the down-side the first impression of our room was of a very tired looking couch and chair which looked like they should have been replaced years ago. It's too bad because they gave the suite a very drab appearance and yet the bedroom was quite well-appointed and bed very comfortable. The bathroom was another negative. I'm guessing we were in an unrenovated room because the plumbing was definitely from another era. The shower was really touchy on temperature and went from scalding hot to very cold and unfortunately because it was situated in a very high tub not easy to escape from when the temperature went renegade. The toilet sometimes flushed and occasionally didn't which made life very exciting and the heated towel rack never did heat up despite the little tag that warned about its heat. I think I would still return to this hotel though, I would just make sure to request a renovated room. Just one more thing, I know this is a matter of taste, but I found the 24 hour soundscape in the elevator very annoying and discordant.
