Le Meridien Piccadilly
- What's Included
I checked in this evening after a long overnight flight and a long day, seeking sanctuary in my Go-To hotel. In the span of a few short hours I’ve been very disappointed in my Go-To Hotel. A few examples:1. No upgrade at check-in2. Totally ignoring my preferences for higher floor and no connecting rooms3. Agent at check-in asked if this is my first stay at this property – Really? Isn’t it right there on your screen that I’ve stayed here 35 times before? Is it that difficult to look up?4. Wines in the lounge have gotten cheaper - as in really bad!5. The USB and charger point on the desk in my room is completely dead and unworkable – which just happens to be the only practical charge point in the entire room!6. Tried to get a bite to eat at the restaurant but turned away (again) due to a private event taking up the entire restaurant7. Went to the bar downstairs at the suggestion of the restaurant, who indicated the full restaurant menu would be available. It wasn’t – just the crappy bar menu.8. Wifi in my room is spotty and mostly unworkable, as is the wifi in the bar area (though wifi in lounge area worked well). Have to resort to roaming through my US-based service to get work done.9. Service in the bar is (again) horrible – does it really take 20 minutes to bring me a glass of wine (when the guy 5 ft away got his in 45 seconds?)10. Still waiting after 45 minutes for a hamburger in the bar. Sheesh.I've had enough of the abuse at this place.Ron
Extremely delicious breakfast, everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Jessica and Roxane and we received very nice upgrade. Thanks a lot. We really enjoyed our stay. We're definitely staying here again when we return. Greetings from Prague !
Booked a Prosecco Afternoon Tea for Sunday 27th November 2016; specifically requested a table where not too much walking would be required as one of our party has mobility issues; we were given a table that was almost at the end of the room, you had to walk up three steps to reach the dining area. The ambience was totally bland, plain wooden tables with no tablecloths. We weren't served for about 10 minutes and then a description of the afternoon tea contents was mumbled to us by a heavily accented young lady speaking very indistinctly. The contents of the afternoon tea was nothing special, the scones were the highlight and the lovely Assam tea. The sandwiches were also bland and the cakes were nondescript. The macaroons and the ginger biscuits were the tastiest morsels. We weren't offered extra tea or anything else. The whole dining area was built into an Atrium on the 2nd floor and the very high glass ceiling made the room very cold.Afternoon Tea is supposed to be an occasion, something special - unfortunately this was none of those things.We had frequented Le Meridien many years ago when the afternoon tea experience was on the ground floor with beautiful and comfortable furniture and surroundings, decorative china, tablecloths and a calming and serene quality. A lady used to play a harp in the afternoons. That was very special.Unfortunately our experience on Sunday 27th Nov 2016 left us cold.
I usually stay in Covent Garden area but it was booked so chose this hotel instead. Fantastic location, right on Piccadilly, steps from the underground. Room was very good sized, a surprise in London. Not modernized but very comfortable.
It is with regret that I am putting this review on trip advisor, but I am very disappointed with the room offered to me on my recent stay at Le Meridien Hotel in Picadilly. I actually booked an overnight stay way back on 6th October for a one night stay on 26th November and as it was our wedding anniversary gift to my husband I requested a room with a city view and as high up in floor levels as possible. However, on arrival on Saturday and on opening the door to our room, I was saddened to see that we were only on the 3rd floor (of seven floors), which we were happy to accept, but the main window to our room was blocked to view by an outside pillar and the other window was a semicircle which we had barely any view from. We approached reception to request an alternative room, only to be told that the hotel was full and therefore no other rooms were available. They did advise that we could try checking out, then in again, but I could not see the sense in that if there were no rooms anyway! In fairness to the young lady who dealt with us on Saturday (Jessica) on checkout the next day she did advise that a note had been put on the system that when I next book I get the best view possible, but sadly our anniversary weekend has now taken place so what would be the point in that and would I seriously take that risk again for nearly £300? Perhaps not....
