Le Meridien Philadelphia

Rated 7.8 in 156 reviews. 202 rooms.


Built at the turn of the 20th Century, this Georgian Revival building has a lot of stories to tell. Over top the main entrance reads, "Youth Men's Christian Associate", also known as the YMCA. Housing the activities and classes that helped shaped Philadelphia's youth for so long, the YMCA became eventually the Philadelphia District Attorney's office. Over time, the recent architects saw an opportunity to reuse the building, and completely restore it, and create a welcoming and warm atmosphere that is now a hotel. With modernity and class, the Le Meridien Philadelphia offers classic decor with a flare of the upbeat colors, stylish music, chic meeting spaces, and a sophisticated staff that will most certainly bedazzle even the most senior of travelers.

Steps away from the largest municipal building in the world, City Hall, the Le Meridien boasts the most centrally located property in all of the city. Two blocks from the convention center, a swift walk to the Art Museum, and a stone's throw from world famous restaurants. We are you chic home away from home.

This boutique Philadelphia hotel offers a smoke-free environment and a French restaurant. The Pennsylvania Convention Center is 483 metres away while the Rocky Steps and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are within 2 km of Le Meridien.
