There's no dearth of hotels along La Rambla, in the heart of the city, but few rival the upscale Le Méridien. Rooms are tastefully decorated in neutral tones, with rich wood trim and accents of red, and big flat-screen TVs. The black stone bathrooms have frosted glass doors to the showers, safety bars, and futuristic scales. Amenities include fluffy robes, a trouser press, and a coffee maker. The best rooms are on the upper floors, overlooking the promenade; those on the opposite side, unfortunately, have no view at all. The soundproofing is near-perfect. The Méridien is popular with businesspeople and visiting celebrities alike.

Even though the hotel was undergoing renovations they managed to do a great job of accomodating guests. Our room was clean, modern with a large bathroom (even by American standards). The location right on the Ramblas was great, accessible to different restaurants and the subway. The concierge was helpful and made good suggestions. They also have a business center with free internet access which was a great plus.
