“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We found the location convenient, a pleasant walk to the wharf area and to the shopping areas, with the obligatory Starbucks across the road, and lots of little coffee shops and cafes nearby.

The hotel has been recently renovated with a funky bar area, where you can get free wifi, also available in the foyer of the hotel. The room and bedding were very comfortable.

We were very impressed with concierge she was extraordinarily good, and went out of her way to assist.

The breakfast area was a little dark and food was okay.

We had a great stay here, locaton was good and not to hectic. The staff were very helpful and the room was a delight. We were able to get around from this base point with ease. The concierge was so helpful with all the restaurants, sights and things to do.

We've stayed in the Financial District of San Francisco several times. The hotels have always been upscale. What sets the Le Meridien apart is the staff. They are amazingly friendly. As soon as the valet opened my car door I was taken back by how friendly and helpful he was. Then at the front desk the woman behind the counter gave me a great big smile and welcome. She even gave me an upgrade to a suite. I didn't ask for it. She just said, "I have a surprise for you and you'll see what it is when you to get to you room." For such an upscale hotel, which I booked with Priceline for about $50 less than what the hotel web site showed, the staff were not pretentious. I've found that many hotel staff in fancy S.F. hotels treat you as though you're lucky they're letting you spend the night there.

Green Features: I'm not aware of what those practices are. What I did like was that they give you a $5 credit voucher if you don't have your room cleaned and bed made every day that you're there.

I’m becoming a huge fan of Le Meridien. We had a very enjoyable stay at the San Francisco Financial District location. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our room was large, well appointed, and extremely comfortable. Even the complimentary bottled water - while a small amenity - is a welcome change to the water with the $6 price tag one typically finds at comparable hotels. The building has a rather unusual angular design so that most rooms have a "corner" window. We had a nice view of the Bay Bridge. Happy hour from 2-7 in the hotel bar is an added plus. While there is not a lot going on in the Financial District for tourists, the hotel is a short stroll to the Embarcadero, ferry building, and Chinatown and a very walkable distance to Union Square. For public transit riders, a Muni and BART stop is an easy 7-10 minute walk, and the #1 bus will drop you off less than a block from the hotel. Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I stayed here as a longer USA trip. We were struggling to find a reasonable priced hotel and this was booked through Priceline. We were in the car and parked at Embarcadero Centre which is across the street and saved money compared to the hotels valet. Check in was quick and friendly.

We arrived on a Friday evening and in the hotel bar they had a happy hour. There is also a British style pub over the road called the Elephant in Castle, there are not many other restaurants or bars in the area as the hotel is in the Financial District. We got a taxi a couple of times and the rest of the time we tended to walk, it is about 10 minutes walk to Union Square and another 10 minutes in the other direction to the Ferry Building. The hotel staff were really helpful at advising us how to get places and also which cable cars to get on.

Our room was spacious and clean. I would recommend staying at this hotel if you can get it at a reasonable price.

This hotel was great! We arrived a little early & unfortunately we weren't able to check into our room right away, but the front desk did offer to hold our luggage for us. Everything was tagged & taken to a back area. The hotel is conveniently located near the embarcadero, so we didn't even need a taxi cab or to use our car (there is a parking structure just across the street.) There were so many restaurants, coffee houses, and attractions near the hotel! We went to a concert several blocks down (about a 15-20 min walk), so we called the front desk to ask if they could bring our luggage to our room & we would check in after the show. No problem at all! When we finally got to our room, we had a gorgeous view of both the city & the water. It was absolutely fantastic. The beds were so comfortable & everything was neat & clean & spacious. In the morning, as we were getting ready, we discovered my sister's makeup bag was missing. We called down to the front desk to report it & they apologized, looked for it & found it. Not even 5 minutes had passed from our initial report & they sent it up right away. No kidding- there was 0 wait time! Excellent customer service, very professional & accomadating. We were extremely happy with our stay here! Thank you Le Meridien!!

Green Features: Trash cans are hard to come by (on the streets) - EVERYthing is recycled in San Francisco which is really nice, but at times, its hard to find a place to put your trash...you will find them eventually, they are just sporatically placed, but that is in the city, not inside the hotel.
