I stayed at Le Meridien for 4 nights while on a business trip. It is in a busy commemrcial area by a bus stop and a Kentucky Fried Chicken drive-through--the driver had some difficulty finding the entrance. The outside of the hotel does not reflect how nice it is inside. There is a small comfortable lobby with wifi and a pretty cascading fountain with multiple glass bowls. The elevators are glass so that you have a wonderful view of the city as you go up to your room. I had a corner room on the 10th floor that had views of the water (and buildings in between). The room was large with a king sized bed and lighted decorative headboard, a divan, small desk and chair, plasma TV, small refrigerator, and safe. The bathroom is also large with a multi-head shower. There is a cable for a computer hook-up (no wifi in rooms). The hotel also provided an electric tea kettle with coffee and tea and bottled water daily.
The hotel restaurant is on the second floor in an open seating area. Breakfast was a buffett with many juices, fruits, cereals, breads and rolls, and hot egg and meat dishes; you can also order eggs from the chef. Both the lunch and dinner menus offered an array of vegetarian, fish, chicken, and meat selections with a number of side dishes. I did not try the small gym or pool.
Within walking distance of the hotel is a range of shopping, from small inexpensive shops to a big center with very high-end brands and access from the Marriott.
Pro: Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay. The hotel was very nicely decorated and always spotless. Service was generally excellent, from the front desk staff to the wait staff in the restaurant. Given the busy area where it was located, the hotel was also very quiet. The food was good and plentiful at each meal.
Con: The lighting was not sufficient for working at the desk or even reading in bed. The hot water in the shower was uneven; one evening there was none. The large, glassed-in shower is the awkward kind where the door and faucet are at opposite ends, so you have to enter the shower to turn it on and you get hit with cold water. I also did not get a requested wake-up call my last morning.
I would stay there again and would recommend it for business and family travelers.
