Why We Love This Hotel

  • Modern boutique option in Center City 
  • Complimentary 24-hour fitness facility
  • Rittenhouse Square is a 15-minute walk, and Old City is 20 minutes away


Le Méridien Philadelphia is set in a rather grand former YMCA building in Center City. It's located right next to City Hall and only four blocks from the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It's well situated for leisure travelers -- a five-minute drive from the Philadelphia Museum of Art and an easy walk to the restaurants and bars in Rittenhouse Square.

The hotel retains many of its original features, such as oak paneling and stone fireplaces, but the lobby has the feel of an upscale apartment, with low sofas, tufted rugs and highbrow coffee-table literature.

The centerpiece is a 75-foot-high sunny atrium where you’ll find enormous couches and a business center. It’s a lively hub during the day, as the Wi-Fi here is free (in-room charges apply).

AMuse, the hotel’s brasserie, serves classic French fare, such as lobster bouillabaisse and pot au feu, and is a vision in chrome and white. The adjoining bar is just as gorgeous, with paneled walls and an illuminated counter.

There’s also a small but adequate fitness room (open 24 hours a day), and jogging strollers are available on request for moms and dads who prefer to exercise outdoors. Head up to Fairmount Parkway for a pleasant run along the 10-mile Schuylkill River Trail.

The sleek rooms are decked out in white and slate gray and also have a funky side, with velvet curtains and 1950s-style armchairs. Bathrooms have a walk-in shower or shower over the tub, marble countertops and retro tiling. Some rooms overlook the central atrium, so request a street-facing room for more privacy.
