We stayed in Le Meridien just after Christmas for a few days of holidays choosing the hotel from friends' advice. We were lucky to get a room on the top (9th) floor with a private terrace, which was very stylish and spacious. It not only had a large bed, but also a decent sitting / reading area allowing to chill. My favourite thing about the hotel was bathroom. It had an aqua shower system, which was simply fantastic, and also offered a very cute bathtub for those who like to soak longer.
One of the negative observations was the cleanliness of the bathroom. There were hairs in the shower from a previous guest(-s?), which weren't removed throughout our stay, though they were pretty obvious.
The hotel only has internet in the lobby downstairs (still don't understand what a big deal it is to offer it in guest rooms). It has a decent bar with nice cocktails and snacks. We also tried the restaurant with the lake view and frankly had a disappointing experience. My partner's main dish was too salty and despite him saying this to the waiter nothing really happened. The service was slow, so overall an overpriced dinner, which didn't get high ranks.
The hotel is facing the larger lake and is probably great in summer. Staying in winter it's a bit of a gloomy location. You can still walk to the city centre and the shopping area, but it's not around the corner.
Overall, a very pleasant experience, though next time we'd stay somewhere more central.
