Le Méridien hotel group celebrates its 100th property with the opening of Le Méridien Coimbatore in India

With the launch of Le Méridien Coimbatore in India, the Le Méridien hotel group celebrates the opening of its 100th property. Under the direction of Starwood Hotels & Resorts (St. Regis, Westin, W Hotels) for the past six years, Le Méridien has been substantially rebranded to make it a contemporary, culturally savvy hotel option for travelers to more than 50 destinations around the globe. As with all Le Méridien properties, the new Le Méridien Coimbatore includes a wide variety of dining options: Latest Recipe (international), Ponzu (PanAsian including Mongolian), Favola (Italian) and Peacock (authentic regional Indian). The 254-room hotel also showcases another unique aspect of the brand: the Global Cultural Curator, who organizes large-scale artwork in high impact areas and oversees the UNLOCK ART program, which features an artist-designed key card collection that not only offers guest room access but also access to Le Méridien-affiliated cultural centers. Future Le Méridien hotels include properties in Cairo, Lagos, Bali, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Istanbul.
