We had our dream wedding here at the Le Meridien Philadelphia. It is the perfect location for a chic city wedding in the heart of downtown, walking distance to so many great Philly destinations. What made our wedding extra special was the highly attentive hotel staff - they were in tune with our every want and need and made each of our guests feel like VIP's. Our Catering Sales Manager Amanda C. worked with us on every detail of the wedding to make sure it was just flawless. Also on staff that snowy evening was Adam D., the Banquet Manager; Sonny I., the Executive Chef, and Michael Y., the General Manager - they all made sure the event was perfect! I highly recommend a Winter Wedding for any brave bride who wants magical and cinematic wedding photos in the snow. And to me, the best hotel in the city to compliment that is the warm and sophisticated Le Meridien Philadelphia.Sent on 03/12/2015

Excellent Customer Service!
We hosted our rehearsal dinner at Le Meridien in the Abele Library which was the perfect room for the 75 people that we had attending. It is a comfortable room with a romantic charm and a great view of city hall with fire places on either side of the room. While we searched for a venue to host our rehearsal dinner, it was apparent that Kelley wanted to make the night as we envisioned it. She is so easy to work with and incredibly helpful throughout the process. She is reasonable and genuine in her thoughts and responses. The rehearsal dinner went very well. The room is narrow but was set up in an efficient way. The staff was polite and professional. The entrée (a short rib and halibut duet) was delicious. Kelley and the rest of the staff kept the night moving along at a comfortable pace. Overall, it was the perfect rehearsal dinner experience.Sent on 12/29/2018

As cliche as it sounds, I had my dream wedding here this past December! I have to say the venue itself served as a staple for our wedding pictures, absolutely breathtaking! We chose the venue because it did not need much decor, and with a few accent pieces, not only did it save us tons on decoration costs, but it looked like a winter wonderland. Luckily, the Wedding Coordinator had added a few holiday pieces of decor which added to our holiday theme. Besides, the venue itself the staff was amazing all the way leading up to the event and the day of. Even the guests ranted about the service provided. Kelley Manslanka, the wedding coordinator was extremely responsive and very attentive to our requests and any last minute changes. She made sure we had a flawless event and ensured that every detailed was accounted for. You cannot go wrong with having your event here. The food was impeccable, the service was amazing, and affordable. I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you Kelley and the staff for giving us the best experience and our dream wedding!Sent on 01/17/2018
Le Meridien is one of my favorite places to work as a photographer. The hotel's location is wonderful for photos at City Hall, the Municipal Building, and Love Park. The hotel rooms are modern and clean and also are wonderful for photos. The ceremony and reception site is modern, clean, open and great for lighting from a photographers standpoint too. The staff at Le Meridien is top notch and the food is delicious. This is one of the best locations for your wedding!
Sophisticated and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
