Le Meridien Philadelphia Hotel Review: The Georgian Revival-style building housing Le Méridien Philadelphia has come a long way since its days as a YMCA. Located less than a block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, this property is smartly decorated throughout in contrasting black and white with dramatic red accents. From its 202 guest rooms to its Trumbauer Ballroom overlooking City Hall, it is imbued with the Parisian elegance we’ve come to expect from Le Méridien hotels. This ambience is enhanced by the building’s original features, including beautifully crafted wood archways and wall panels in Amuse bar and brasserie, which serves such classic French bistro fare as onion soup gratinee, escargots and steak frites. Facilities include an on-site business center and 5,000 square feet of meeting space. Amenities include Les Clefs d'Or Concierge, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and high-speed Wi-Fi (for a charge). Inside tip: make sure to ask for a room with a skyline view.
