In a word - special, its a Grand Hotel with all the flourishes and service of the grand hotels, and yet its kept pace with the world as well. Its breathtaking, a spectacle and a place you are made to feel welcome and special.
I have been lucky enough to stay in several top London hotels in the last 10 days, specifically the Park Lane Hotel, the Waldorf and this one. Le Meridian was by far the best. Excellent modern room, a in room entertainment system that worked perfectly and most importantly, wifi that was free, simple to use and worked throughout the property. Great stay!
