“In a Word - Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Recently stayed 2 nights at this medium sized hotel in downtown San Francisco. My king room was $269 (pre-taxes), certainly very reasonable for downtown SF. Room was spacious and well appointed and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed. Nice sized bathroom appeared to be brand new with an easy to work and understand shower. This is somewhat of a pet peeve of mine - unlabeled or poorly labeled shower fixtures that cause you to waste time and water trying to figure out how to get hot or cold water and turn the shower on. Another nice touch was the reasonably priced drinks in the minibar; quite a surprise given how pricey San Francisco is. An Anchor Steam was actually cheaper in my room than at the bar downstairs! Service was impeccable from the front door all the way through check-in and check-out. Location is another strong point - very close to the Embarcadero, but less than a mile in any direction to the other neighborhoods. No negatives that I can think of.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor looking east to get a great Bay Bridge view

We arrived and asked to be on a higher floor and the front desk happily made that happen. We had great service from the front desk, concierge, bell staff and the lounge server. Our room was nice with plenty of space. It was clean and had nice finishings. Certainly not a five star room, but it was nice, worked well for us in the small amount of time we were in the room. The location is in the financial district. It is a busy area, but not touristy. The good news is that the trolleys, electric buses and the f line are a few short blocks away. I found it to be a good central point between all the things to do in the city. Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again we had a very good experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor with a non-joining room

I stayed here only 1 night and chose this hotel via Hotwire and it turned out to be a very solid hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful while the room was large, clean and modern - it's pretty much cookie cutter 4 star business hotel (this is a good thing).

For the business traveller with meetings downtown this is an ideal hotel. Even for the tourist it's not bad at all, it's a 15 minute walk to the shopping areas.

At their regular rates this is still a very solid value and worth another stay.

I stayed here for a night in March 2012. I had a superior room with a King size bed, and the view afford me a glimpse of the water. The room was well appointed and spacious with good ammenities and a clean, nice bathroom. The hotel art was cooler than usual, and the design touches were in general modern and stylish. Wireless was extra.

I chose the Meridien because of my fondness for the Le Parker Meridien in New York. This hotel was not as cool, and the lobby is very demure, and not too exciting. But the rooms were newer and very nice.

The staff was very helpful and the consierge was awesome. I reccomend the hotel for a business trip, the location is excellent, near the Bart, 20 min walk to the convention center, and near to the water. The room was clean and stylish and there was no reason to be unhappy. That said, it is a very understated choice.

The only problem I had was that the off-lobby bathroom has some kind of small black fly infestation. They need to deal with that, the fact they haven't is worrying. I could smell it, the nest is probably in the drain. Gross.

My husband and I live in the Bay area and spent the weekend of his 40th birthday being tourists in our own city. Le Meridien was perfect for our SF adventure. The room was beautifully designed, very comfortable, and had a beautiful view. The bed was extremely comfortable, with high thread count sheets and lots of pillows. The room was very quiet, with virtually no ambient noise from the hallway or the streets (at least, not from the 16th floor). The room temperature was easily controllable without the whine of a loud heater that you get in some hotels. There was a laptop-size safe, a flat-screen tv, and a nice sound system. We had room service breakfast, which was fantastic. The berry pancakes were great! The location couldn't be better. It was an easy walk to Market Street, Chinatown, and North Beach. We got a great deal on our room, and overall, given a similar deal, I would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra to get a good view! It's worth it.

We stayed at the Le Meridien in San Francisco for 3 days and found it to be a little dull and worn. Front desk staff at check in were nice as were concierge but nice does not make a great property. Housekeeping were sloppy and did not remove rubbish from our room during servicing, nor did they make the bed properly (just pulled bed linen up). The air conditioning vents were very dusty and I just did not feel it was clean enough, even the bath towels were getting tired and not fluffy at all, more like starched cardboard. There was also no tea or coffee making facilites in room nor a bottle of complimentary water. Parking is very expensive and although we had read this prior to check in it still stings when you check out, with tax it was over $60.00 per day! The hotel was working on the TV system and during a program we watched (over the entire 3 day stay the picture just dropped out up to every 10 minutes, so we watched a pay movie. Upon check out I explained that we really should not have to pay for the movie due to the TV issues and she changed the subject and did not address my question or concerns I think there are better properties in San Francisco and personally will not be recommending nor returning to this one..

Room Tip: stay elsewhere

My son and I stayed here over the weekend for our annual father/son vacation. The location was excellent...we were able to walk or take a short cab ride to everywhere we wanted to go. Great staff...especially the concierge. The room was clean and up modern with all of the features you'd expect from a 4-star hotel. Great vibe in the lobby/restaurant/bar area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the upper floors for a better view.
