Le Méridien Philadelphia
Modern and elegant accommodations just steps away from the Pennsylvania Convention Center
Originally a YMCA, the Le Meridien Philadelphia Hotel is housed in a 10-story Georgian revival-style structure with intriguing historical flair. The hotel is located in the heart of the city’s business district, less than one block from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Love Park, Philadelphia’s City Hall, AND the expanded Pennsylvania Convention Center, which will be completed in 2011.
The brand new Le Méridien Philadelphia Hotel features 202 guestrooms decorated in bold black-and-white décor with red accents. Newly opened in May 2010 just one block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the modern yet elegant hotel boasts some iconic views: Love Park, William Penn-topped City Hall and the city’s distinct skyline.
Le Méridien’s premier location provides immediate access to the city’s best restaurants, shopping, museums and entertainment destinations including Rittenhouse Square, the Reading Terminal and the Avenue of the Arts.
Le Méridien’s exclusive luxury beds provide ultra pillow-topped comfort, with high thread count linens and full down pillows. Complimentary turn-down service is also available upon request.

Striking features and architectural details awaken the eye: a skylight allows for the play of natural light to the hotel’s 75-foot central atrium courtyard, while guests may enjoy the airy restaurant and bar with graceful archways and classic woodwork.
The 202 rooms feature bold black-and white-decor with inspired red accents to enhance the hotel interior’s rich millwork. And with its views of City Hall, the Grand Ballroom provides a stately yet original setting for any gathering.
Dining at Amuse
Le Méridien’s Amuse is a chic new bar and brasserie, featuring sophisticated, French bistro fare such as onion soup gratinée, escargots, frisée aux lardons, sautéed skate, raw bar selections and salad niçoise — not to mention the extraordinary steak frites.
