Robes, shower was nice , room was quiet. 4 large men given a king bed and a roll away .... We didn't fit in beds comfortably, one ended up sleeping on the floor. Valet parking took a long time and left all 4 windows down in my car.
The valets were very friendly, helpful and accomadating. Room was clean and the tv had a great HD picture. Check in staff ignored me while I stood there staring at them waiting to check in because they were on the phone. As soon as they were done some jerk jumped the line because he wanted to talk to a manager and they catered to him for another 5 mins before helping anyone else. Room smelled like stale cigarettes and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain.
The staff was gracious and helpful Dust covered the room and the toilet had cardboard trash in it upon arrival. Staff took care of the problem after being notified. The cost for parking at $45.00 a night was ridiculous.
Not for family's & a little outdated. The location is amazing!
The room was very comfortable and yet stylish. The location is absolutely perfect. The highlight of our stay was the incredibly attentive and friendly staff. We highly recommend staying at Loews Philadelphia Hotel!
Location & room were great Air conditioning was bad, after repair it was barely adecuate
Dog-friendly facilities Certain staff members (including one valet who was obviously personally invested in getting our car out and seemed to feel genuinely bad that one of his colleagues had screwed up our ticket) Location General lack of service-orientation among staff (many were impolite or at least brusque - not the kind of attitude you get at luxury hotels) Everything (except room service) closes early Valet takes forever to drop car and get it out - very poorly managed Not a lot of services available
Front desk was very accommodating upgraded us to deluxe king room upon check in Concierge not very helpful. Asked twice for recommendations on transportation and wanted to push private car which was theost expensive option vs any other public transportation which we opted for.
Very friendly staff. Great view of the city from my room. Walls are thin, and you could here the neighboring room to well.
Excellent location, exceptional staff, great restaurant and bar. Nice room and a comfortable bed as well as a pretty good WiFi connection (best I have experience in a while at a hotel). Walls were a little thin. We could hear people in the hall coming and going as if they were almost in the room.
The staff and hotel were wonderful. They ran out of cucumber water, but we did drink a lot of it.
Location was prefect for walking around town to all the sites
Good location, not very crowded. N/A
The maid services was very helpful. The staff downstairs was unfailingly friendly, even with the difficult customer in front of me. I loved my stay. I kept running out of creamer and asking for more. I probably just use too much. They always brought it up for me right away.
Location central to everything we came to do. Everything was great! Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Parking was 34 a day. that was rediculace after spending that much on my stay.
Very convenient location for visiting our local office. Congested area, difficult parking, lots of traffic. (standard downtown Philadelphia)
The staff answered questions. They were well trained My husband and I were bit by bed bugs. There were you ha kids running around the entire hotel all night long making noise. We attempted to go in the pool many children unsupervised over crowded. I'm sure many of the teenagers who were staying at the hotel had no business being there
Breakfast was very good. Dining room good ambiance. Wait staff were excellent. Air conditioning was too noisy. No night light for bathroom.
Right in the city close to lots of tourist destinations. Beds are incredibly comfy, and loved the microwave/fridge/keurig combo. Very close to some dodgy parts of town. Parking is outrageously difficult to find on street (and I'm from NYC). Just pay the insane fee for the parking garage, it's worth it. On street is $9 for3 hours anyways. The hotel itself wasn't terrible with clean rooms, a pool/hot tub area and decent exercise facilities. The whole place was a bit dark and I felt compelled to turn on all the lights in the room and it still felt dark. Other than the hotel feeling dark and a bit old it was a pleasant stay.
Convenient location, helpful staff. Complicated garage access.
So close and convenient to Jefferson Station train stop. If you are planning on using public transport to get from the airport to the hotel and back, you can't beat the location. It was also close to restaurants and within walking distance to historic Philadelphia attractions. Was traveling with my seven year old and I felt safe in the neighborhood. Staff was very friendly and very helpful! Restaurant in hotel had good options. Everything was clean and in good shape. Pool area and exercise room left a little to be desired but were good enough for my son to enjoy and for me to get a vacation sized workout.
onvenient, good service, clean room
Room was dirty and disgusting
The room was gorgeous and the staff were very nice. The bed was way too soft. And the walls are thin so we we were woken up through the night by a group next door to us. We finally called the front desk at 4:30 and they addressed the issue.
The location was great, room and hotel was beautifully decorated, and the price was so reasonable. I would definitely come back! $50 to park your car is kind of expensive but you get a full 24 hours.
Everything, location was great for everyone to enjoy. There's a Marriott with full service next door, a Hard Rock and bunch or restaurants. Is also located on a historical area. N/a
We had a wonderful stay at this clean modern hotel... It's location could not have been any better. Will definitely stay here again.
I loved the building it was very classic Philadelphia and very comfortable. It was very clean and the rooms were well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable! The night staff didn't seem as up beat as the morning staff - but then again they are working nights. They did their jobs and got my room key to me in very little time. :)
The hotel was beautiful, the employees were very kind, and the room was perfect for our overnight stay. We walked to the Reading terminal market, and we were across the street from the subway station. Couldn't have asked for a better location! The valet parking was a bit pricey but it was very convenient and no stress.
Location is good, although there are 2 different Marriott hotels next door. We went to the wrong one first and already had valet parked our car before we realized it was the hotel next door. Received an email confirming room would be ready by 3, upon arrival at 4 we were notified room was not ready and would be 45min. We were told they would call us when ready but after hour an a half of no call we went back to find there was a credit card issue which could have easily been resolved if they would have called. Wasted time wandering around downtown
It would be nice to have some kind if discounted parking. Also, we had dinner in the hotel's restaurant and would only give it 1-2 star. Would not eat there again.
Location My room was not ready till 5pm.
Hotel was clean, staff was attentive and courteous. The rooms were beautifully appointed, and when our booked room wasn't available, we were upgraded into a corner room executive suite overlooking historic City Center. Pool wasn't heated.
This was out 4th time staying and it was just as before. Clean friendly convenient and FANCY! It's a little hard to grab a cab/uber out front, but that's the city. No reflection on the hotel at all.
When I arrived to the marriott to find out kayak never reserved my room, the kind marriott staffer jumped into action (and also revealed this was the 4th time that week that he had to deal with kayak's inefficiency)
Central location, clean rooms, many hotel amenities, ease of check in and check out, responsive stadd. Room too small. Was told I would get two Queen beds and larger room and did not receive. Terrible view of construction site.
Close to Center City, comfortable room and beds, quiet for sleeping in.
Too big if anything. 8 minutes to get to/from room
Location is good. Beds not comfortable at all. Internet didn't work, unacceptable considering there is a extra charge Keep a bottle of water in the room!!
The hotel does not offer Reward points when I book through Kayak
Clean, quiet, location No hot tub in the pool area
Hot apple cider in the lobby was a nice touch. Complimentary Wi-Fi not included?! Considering the room rates, I found this outrageous. Felt like a 3rd world country.
Our room was very large! Especially for for hotel in the middle of a major city. Very high ceiling and tall windows made for a comfortable stay. Long walk from lobby to rooms and viva versa. Stairway was very dirty.
The location of the hotel is the definition of ideal. Many modes of public transit are easily accessible. Just on principle, any hotel should be able to provide free, or, at minimum, reduced fee parking. This hotel has neither. Be ready to fork out another $40/day for parking.
Sizable room with modern amenities with a very comfortable bed and pillows. Friendly, helpful staff. Great workout room. Convenient central location. Large, sociable bar and lounge area. There was a stain on my sheets; could tell that it was something that had been washed/dried into place, but still a little disappointing for a hotel chain of this quality. I was given a room accessible for persons with disabilities, which I was fine with, but was not asked by the check-in staff first. The only downside to the accessible room was that the doorless, tubless shower got water all over the bathroom floor and soaked the bathmat regardless of how I adjusted the shower-head. Really, these are just minor inconveniences from an otherwise great hotel. Would definitely come back.
Great location, beautiful pool (with very accommodating hours) and clean & comfortable room. Very friendly, helpful staff.
GREAT LOCATION ROOMS WERE NOT CLEANED WELL. TOILET WAS USED AND NOT CLEANED PROPERLY. PEOPLE NEXT DOOR TOO LOUD, TOO LATE...
My room had everything I needed. The location is excellent. The hotel offers free wifi and hot breakfast. They charged me $70 for incidentals at check in without telling me about the amount. I noticed it, because my credit card company emailed me about the charge. Also there was a strange charge ($0.01) after check out. I need to figure out what it was for.
Not a good bed at all. Otherwise everything was pretty good. Nothing special though.
Find something else.
Located downtown and easy to get to everything. Small, old, noisy, drafty. Cost high for basically an indoor motel. Breakfast was not good.
Hotel staff was friendly and efficient and the room was clean and exactly what we needed. It looks like an older hotel from the outside, but inside it is well cared for and looks like it may have been renovated recently. We stayed in a one bedroom, which had updated furniture and the bed was very comfortable. The room also had water and a coffee maker inside which was a pleasant surprise as I had expected a barebones room. We had a room at the end of the hall and didn't hear anyone in any other rooms. We walked from the hotel to Independence Hall, the Art Museum, Eastern State Penn, and Walnut Street, and found it a slightly long but comfortable distance to each, so it was a good central location. Also, we did not park with the hotel, but at a nice parking garage in Chinatown, which is just down the street from the hotel. With a voucher from the hotel, parking was very reasonable for downtown Philadelphia. All together the hotel was a good value for the price, especially since I booked the room only a short time before our trip. The bathroom could use a little work, it was clean but the ceiling was flaking and had stains, and the floor and shower just looked a lot older than the rest of the room. Also, the shower's hot and cold water was reversed, but we figured it out quick and didn't have a problem with it. My only other concern isn't with the hotel itself, but with the location of a homeless shelter on the same block. Not realizing this we left our car parked on the street across from the hotel and happened to come back to it at the same time they were serving lunch. We came back to our car surrounded by about every homeless person in Philidelphia. I just would have parked elsewhere if I had realized this, so FYI for future patrons.
Clean,comfortable and welcoming
Nothing The valet misinformed us about the parking. They strongly recommended we pay 50$ for valet parking rather than on the street. The hotel room was not very ideal or modern for the price. The towels and bed sheets smelled as if they had not been changed or washed. The hotel did NOT provide amenities, and the shower products provided were very low quality and would not use them on my body. There are plenty other choices in Philadelphia and would not recommend this La meridian.
Very modern with a side of vintage appeal. Awesome doorman Old hair dryers. Scratched mirrors. Dirty Windows.
Clean rooms City Hall views Lobby bar with friendly bartender Friendly and accommodating front desk staff Diminutive gym Broken solar shade in room
Interesting hotel since it had been a YMCA before The elevator gave a lot of trouble.
The friendly atmosphere in this stylish, classy hotel. The rain.....but the hotel had complimentary umbrellas in the entrance hall.a very welcome touch as we'd forgotten ours!
The room was modern and aesthetically pleasing, with comfortable beds and linnens. It's not a big issue, but they gave me the wrong room type, and overall there wasn't a whole lot of attention to detail.
Staff was absolutely amazing!!! Location is two blocks away from convention center, reading terminal market and major attractions. We stayed in a interior room and didn't hear a sound. We will def stay here every time we visit Philly. Rooms are a bit on the small side. Lighting is very dim in the room.
People were nice and helpful. Breakfast was decent and family friendly. $40 for parking for the night is a bit ridiculous. Wasn't a fan of the bedding. My family has a tendency to toss and turn and by the morning the sheets had mostly all come off my bed and the same for my daughters. Not a huge deal but a fitted sheet would have been n ice.
Right across the street from the wonderful Reading Market and the Convention Centre, and next door to a great burger place. Staff was wonderful. Room was spacious. Free coffee and tea all day! Heating was a little weird. The air conditioner was powerful and came on automatically until we turned it off, but then there was little air ventilation. Certainly not the end of the world.
The cleanliness and modern decor was very inviting and appealing. Breakfast ending at 9 instead of 10; there's no validated parking, paying $34 for parking is ridiculous.
Paying 40 a day for parking was crazy, other than that it was awesome
Great breakfast. Clean and modern rooms. Excellent location
facility was very nice. staff very accommodating the air in our first room didn't work. After an hour of being in the room the temperature was still 78 degrees. Engineering said the people who had that room before us had the same problem. They shouldn't have sold that room again until it was fixed. But... they moved all of our belongings while we went out to dinner and were very nice and helpful.
Location location location. Kitchenette, room decor, foot shelf in shower (not important to all, but us gals appreciate it!), good climate control, room key access for elevator (great for security). No lotion in room (I forgot mine), no place to get wine and/or beer for the room in the evening, parking garage is really complicated set up, no access to hotel from garage and difficult to navigate. One of my wash towels was soiled (ick).
Not a bad location, right on the edge of Chinatown. You are in a good central spot in the city and walking distance from the reading terminal market. Staff was extremely friendly. Lack of amenities hurts the score. Their 'business' center is on computer in the lobby and there is no pool. Could not find a fitness center anywhere even though I was told there was one. Did not make it to breakfast, so no comment there.
