Best hotel venue
Le Meridien is absolutely stunning. The rooms are amazing so your guests will be impressed and super comfortable. Kelley the sales manager goes above and beyond to make sure your day is absolutely PERFECT. She’s available at any time to chat or change something last minute. Food was great, service was awesome. Cocktail hour in the library was stunning overlooking city hall with fireplaces. If your trying to have a classy wedding and do something different than the typical Cescaphe or Finley catering, this is your place!!!Sent on 01/19/2020

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

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
Le Meridien Philadelphia's reply:Anne - It was our honor to be a part of such a magical and memorable day for you and David! We wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness together!

I had a very long engagement and Amanda was there every step of the way. She would respond immediately and wouldn't matter how small or silly the question may have seemed. She was organized, nice to deal with, and I had 100% trust in her. It made the wedding planning experience so much easier. I felt that every step dealing with le meridian was easy because the staff was so knowledgeable, responsive, and nice to deal with.Sent on 01/19/2015

There aren't enough words to describe the amazing Le Meridien and event coordinator Amanda Chrin. Amanda was nothing short of fantastic from the first day I met with her. She was warm, welcoming and supportive every step of the way. Her organization and experience helped us plan our perfect day and I have no doubt, that without her, it wouldn't have been possible. Everything surrounding our wedding was perfect. The venue is gorgeous, the staff is attentive and the food delicious. Amanda and Le Meridien made our wedding everything that we dreamed of and more. I honestly cannot recommend them enough. If you want a picture perfect wedding in the heart of the city, look no further.Sent on 11/03/2014
Le Meridien Philadelphia's reply:Kristen - it was an honor to help plan and coordinate your dream wedding. Thank you for instilling your trust in Le Meridien and allowing us to be a part of such a lifelong memory. Best wishes to you and Paul on a wonderful, happy marriage.

We felt from the very beginning we were in good hands with Amanda. She was supportive, encouraging, and followed up with every detail for the event. Amanda's professionalism and expertise inspired confidence, reassuring us the wedding would be a success. Amanda helped us meet the challenges by providing great advice and excellent problem solving skills. The event exceeded our expectations. Our family and guests continue to send me messages and comments about the evening. The food was excellent at the cocktail hour and dinner. Amanda handled all of the details and needs for the various vendors serving the event. The hotel accommodations were perfect! We were highly satisfied with every aspect of the wedding.

I can't give enough credit to the staff for how warm and welcoming everyone was. As the Mother of the Bride I felt completely at ease because every time I turned around there was someone there willing to help us with any little detail. From check in on Friday to check out on Sunday it was a perfect weekend!!Sent on 06/30/2014
Le Meridien Philadelphia's reply:Lori - we loved having you! It was a true honor to host your daughter's wedding. It's a day that I know means so much to you!

Amanda Chrin, and Adam Dieko, Banquet Manager, are exceptional people. Accompanied by Sonny Ingui, ecxecutive chef, they represent Le Meridien in the finest light possible. Their professionalism is accompanied by a sense of warmth and grace. We are forever indebted to them, for they helped us a have the most special celebration one could ask for. We would be happy to be available as a reference for any inquiring party who is considering Le Meridien as their wedding venue.Sent on 07/01/2014
Le Meridien Philadelphia's reply:Jay - thank you for entrusting Le Meridien to host this day in your family's life that will be a memory that will last you all a lifetime.

I absolutely loved my wedding at Le Meridien. We chose the hotel because it was a beautiful space with a boutiquey feel - it does not feel like your typical hotel. It has a mix of old architecture with modern touches. It originally was not even on our list of places to explore until a friend of ours who had stayed at the hotel for business suggested. We are SO happy he did!Sent on 07/21/2014
The per head price was competitive with many comparable venues in Philadelphia, and more fairly-priced than several of a similar caliber. I think we got excellent value for our money. The food from Chef Sonny is truly delicious, which is not something you normally hear about banquet catering at a hotel. Adam, the catering manager, worked hard to make sure we were comfortable with the wines that would be poured. Amanda, the sales manager, was incredibly responsive from day one (over a year before the wedding) until the day-of. A few things to note / tips - we ended up having 142 people attend. The room holds 160-180 max, but I'd be wary of having a wedding larger than 150 here, especially if you're planning to have everyone on the dance floor.

We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Le Meridien! I loved the venue as soon as I stepped foot inside, but when I met the coordinator, Amanda Chrin, I was sold! She seemed just as excited about the space as I was. She was easy to talk to and ask questions to, I immediately felt like I would be in great hands! The whole team at the hotel was very helpful in assisting with room blocks, the rehearsal, the wedding and reception and the brunch the next day. Because of the wonderful competant staff, I didn't worry about a thing on my big day -Everything was taken care of perfectly! The food was amazing! Take the chef's recommendations and trust his judgement when planning the menu and it will be better than you ever imagined! Le Meridien is such a beautiful space and the staff was wonderful, professional, helpful and made you as the bride feel like the most important person there!Sent on 08/26/2014

Le Merdien was a gorgeous venue for our wedding! Amanda, Adam, and Jennifer all did an amazing job to make our special day so easy and beautiful! They were so patient the entire time and made me feel very comfortable with all of the details we needed (including ordering custom candies shipped from Indiana!). Everyone was so great and we still receive so many compliments on our wedding day, especially for how beautiful the hotel was and the food!Sent on 06/30/2014

It is your Wedding Day - after all the planning, you want everything to be perfect. Amanda Chrin and her great team at the Le Meridien will make sure that will happen. We held both our cermony and our wedding at the Le Meridien. From Amanda's ideas, her coaching, her suggestions, and her hand holding it was THE MOST PERFECT DAY EVER!

Amanda Chrin was a dream to work with. She was patient, and attentive to our specific requests. We planned a wedding in 51 days, and the attention to detail was impeccable. Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all held at the hotel. The venue is beautiful, the staff is beyond courteous, and the food was delicious! My guests are still raving about how beautiful our special day was. I highly recommend this location without reservation!Sent on 07/05/2014
Allison · Married on 11/05/2011
My husband and I had our ceremony and reception both at Le Meridien in Philadelphia. The venue stole our hearts the moment we stepped inside and we knew it was where we would tie the knot. The hotel combines a modern chic vibe with traditional vintage architecture and many of our guests complimented the space as one of the nicest they've been in. The events staff (ADAM!) really treated us like the king and queen of the evening, surprising us with a sample of all of our passed hors devours that we missed out on while we were out taking photos, among other nice touches. You won't regret having your wedding at Le Meridien! See my bride profile page for a few of the best photos.Sent on 06/11/2012

Beautiful hotel with great rooms. We got a complimentary suite the night of our wedding because we filled our block. There was even champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us at the end of the night! They let us use a space for our rehearsal. They were so helpful when we had guests requesting to book rooms at the group rate after the deadline.Sent on 08/21/2016
Really the only complaints would be the cost of parking, but I think that an issue everywhere in Philadelphia. And the refrigerator in our room wasn't working, and my maid of honor waited almost an hour (which I didn't find out about until after the fact) for them to bring a replacement, and that one wasn't working so well either.
Jennifer · Married on 11/12/2013
We chose Le Meridien as our wedding venue. We couldn't have been any happier. The staff was a joy to work with. The hotel was beautiful and exactly the modern chic vibe we were going for. The hotel made for beautiful pictures, our food was delicious, and the accommodations were amazing. They really worked with us to make it special for our day. We had a small intimate wedding with a luncheon in their restaurant downstairs. We were able to get the library for our ceremony and that was amazing. I highly recommend this venue for your special day. It was absolutely perfect!Sent on 07/14/2014
