202 Room Hotel profile

History and Location

Originally a YMCA, our hotel is housed in a 10-story Georgian revival-style structure with intriguing historical flair, located in the heart of the city's business district and less than one block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Architecturally Striking

Striking features and architectural detail awaken the eye: a skylight allows for the play of natural light to our 75-foot central atrium courtyard, while an airy restaurant/bar with graceful archways and classic woodwork brings endless possibility.

Elegant Simplicity

Our 202 rooms feature bold black and white decor with inspired red accents to enhance the hotel interior's rich millwork. The Grand Ballroom provides a stately yet original setting for any gathering, with views of Philadelphia's renowned City Hall.


Le Méridien Philadelphia provides the perfect respite at the end of the day.  Every member of our team is dedicated to ensuring an unforgettable stay for each of our guests. From the moment you arrive to the time of your departure, you'll enjoy our attention to detail and commitment to providing exceptional hospitality.

Each guestroom features bold black and white décor and inspired red accents that enhance the hotel's rich millwork.  Our sleek contemporary furnishings offer a palette for a restful retreat or serene productivity. 

Our exclusive luxury beds provide ultra pillow-topped comfort, with high thread count linens and full down pillows.  If you care for a little extra pampering, request our complimentary turn-down service.
