Fodor's Review

Opened in May 2010, Le Méridien offers a welcome boutique alternative to the more standard hotels near the convention center. The 10-story hotel occupies an old YMCA built in 1908 and has maintained some of the original architectural character, such as ornate woodwork lining the archways of the airy lobby. The contrast between the building's inherent charm and Le Méridien's modern decor comes off smoothly. Landings for the upper floors are cantilevered to the original

brick wall of a 75-foot atrium that fills the property's center with natural light; some rooms only have a view of this atrium. Rooms are posh and comfortable, if spare: some have only one mod chair besides the high-top desk chair. Southern-facing rooms have views of City Hall. Wi-Fi is complimentary in lobby.
