Le Meridien straddles the line between classic comfort and sophisticated chic with topnotch amenities and a staff of suited-up Les Clefs d’Or concierges that make for a smooth trip regardless of your reason for visiting. With sleek modern design (think soft lighting, neutral tones, and subtle pops of color) complimented by ample business amenities, this Financial District high-rise is the ideal hotel for business travelers—or those who just want to be in the middle of the action. Upstairs, 360 contemporary rooms offer a lavish place for R&R, with views overlooking either the San Francisco Bay or the sparkling city skyline and iconic Transamerica Pyramid. Some rooms have balconies and windows that open, ideal for those wanting fresh morning air or a sunrise view. It’s location in the heart of the Financial District means nothing is too far away, from the Moscone Center to the Bentley Reserve, hopping happy hour bars, and top-notch San Francisco restaurants. Although perching yourself at the hotel’s Park Grill is also an admirable option: the popular restaurant serves classic American cuisine (pastrami sandwiches; fresh pastas; San Francisco specialities like cioppino) with an outdoor terrace, while Bar 333 shakes up classic cocktails and conversations in a social atmosphere every evening until midnight.
In the Area
San Francisco’s thriving bar scene, world-class conference centers, and best restaurants are in the neighborhood. Check out Leo’s Oyster Bar for high-end seafood like baked oysters and caviar with craft cocktails in a trendy-yet-retro fern-filled space, or Michael Mina, a classic elegant power lunch hub lead by the celebrity chef. Many of the city’s landmarks are also within walking distance, making it easy to weave sightseeing into any busy schedule—from Union Square to the San Francisco Ferry Building to Coit Tower. And its location is strategically positioned at the nexus of three great walkable neighborhoods: the Embarcadero, North Beach, and Chinatown.
How to Get There
We were a little worried there wouldn’t be anything to do at night in the Financial District but it was a great find and within walking distance to everything. This was a great stay. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was very classy and the price was great. Use spot hero for parking deals in the area.
Hotel is great! We got a big room. And the housekeeping was very nice to attend to all our requests.
Hotel has a good location. Many food and stores around the hotel.
The lady who checked us in was very rude though. Explained something to her about our reservation but seems like she didnt get it, when we go to our room - the lady called us and scolded us because she said we were not clear and she did not understand when in fact it was a very simple explanation to begin with lol. She- who i will not name- definitely needs training.
Loved this hotel. I bid and got a room on priceline for a very reasonable price..about 125..it was close to market st where the pride parade was..the rooms are very clean and modern..was given a quiet room in the corner as i asked for. The only issue I could see was the lack of in room coffee..which I did want..went to the 3rd floor and got my free coffee in sweats and ungroomed. But the coffee was good. Wish they offered both, maybe a free coffee setup in your room by request? But given my discounted rate and the lovely hotel, I don't really feel I can complain.
