Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Meridien San Francisco Hotel

t Be Better

from A TripAdvisor Member
Visited the Le Meridien (formerly the Park Hyatt) over the Fourth of July weekend. Got a deal on the bay view room ($209 through Expedia). The room was on the 23rd floor. The view was amazing, from the Coit Tower and TransAmerica building to the Bay Bridge. The furnishings were good, the room was large, and the orange blossom-scented toiletries were delightful. More importantly, the hotel staff was friendly and helpful, greeting us with a smile everytime we passed by and offering to store our luggage when we arrived early and later, between check-out and the time our plane departed. I would highly recommend this hotel, which boasts a comparatively quiet location in the financial district.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

Terrific service. Courteous, friendly, attentive staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. We had a lovely view in ours. Will definitely stay here again when in SanFran.

Great Stay

from AC2006
My husband and I loved this hotel. Clean, large room and great service. The concierge is great (especially William) and the bartendars are also friendly and helpful. We will be visiting there again without a doubt.

Gem of a Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here for a quick weekend get away using our Starwood points. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room on the 20th floor was clean, contemporary and spacious compared to the size of the room we stay in at the San Francisco W. We had a small but nice view of the Bay Bridge. Bring cd's so you can enjoy the room cd player. The toiletries were very nice. Very usable for both sexes. The bed was a sleeper's delight! The concierge was extremely helpful. The staff is attentive. We didn't eat at the hotel but enjoyed a nightcap in the hotel lobby after dinner. I highly suggest you have dinner at Jeanty at Jack's. It is one of our favorite (french) restaurants in the city. The tomato soup in puff pastry is a must! It is a leisurely stroll a couple of blocks from the hotel. Go to the Ferry Building for a light breakfast. There are a few places to buy coffee or tea, fruit, juice and a pastry. For lunch or dinner try the Slanted Door in the Ferry Building. North Beach and Chinatown are within walking distance, too. The next time we need another getaway, we'll stay here!

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We've stayed at this hotel before when it was the Park Hyatt & loved it then. This past trip we had a junior suite - which was fabulous! It was a corner room facing the bay with a small balcony. The living room was separate from the bedroom, so we could entertain guests & share the great view! The decor is very modern - we had black & white marble/granite bathrooms, the doors are a cherry wood, and the carpet is dark. Robes were provided for us to use, as well as an umbrella just in case.... the bathroom amenities are great!

We didn't dine in the hotel, but the concierge was excellent at making suggestions & confirming reservations. Little Italy is just a short walk, and for the more active, the Wharf is manageable as well. We'll definitely be back ... great location, great hotel & great prices if Travelzoo has a special.

Great experience at Le Meridien!

from Porpoise
Stayed here with my parents (2 different rooms) on a vacation in Northern California. The experience was great. I can't imagine a better place to stay in SF (unless you need a lot of nightlife). The staff were all outstandingly pleasant and helpful. The rooms were not just clean and comfortable--they were stylish! We had a great view of the bay (paid a small charge to upgrade). Easy to get to any place you like in SF, but really quiet and safe at night.

I got a great deal on the hotel through Hotwire. Count yourself extremely lucky if you land something similar. But given my excellent experience, if I were travelling to SF again, I'd try to stretch my budget to make sure I could return here.

Excellent service and comfortable, but nothing special...

from neilmadhvani
After having read a lot of the reviews here I was expecting a lot from this hotel. Unfortunately I didn't feel the Le Meridien (formerly Park Hyatt) lived up to this. On a positive note, the service is impeccable - all of the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the hotel certainly felt very welcoming. However the room I stayed in, whilst very clean, could definitely do with a touch of renovation. I also thought that the room was extremely dark inside, even with all the lights turned on.

In addition, there's no swimming pool - that's quite surprising for a 5* hotel. Even at the corporate rate that I paid at this hotel ($235+tax) I don't feel that this represents very good value for money. The week before I stayed at the Hilton Hotel & Towers on O'Farrell St, which I booked myself via Hotwire at $145+tax, and I thought the Hilton was considerably better, especially in terms of the interior of the room.

In terms of location, this hotel is ideal if you need to be in the Financial District (it's right next to the Embarcadero Center), but not so well suited for access to other areas. If visiting San Francisco on holiday, I'd recommend staying further west towards Union Square.

This hotel definitely has a lot of potential, particularly due to the wonderful staff who work there. I hope that Le Meridien will carry out some well-needed improvements to make this a first-rate place to stay in San Francisco.

impeccable service, beautiful views

from drummerliz
Le Meridien, formerly Park Hyatt is a fantastic hotel where service is top priority. The rooms are beautifully appointed, great bath amenities, plenty of space, awesome views. I booked through hotwire so didn't know where I'd be for my in-town getaway, and I loved this hotel so much, I'm returning at the end of the month.
The room service food is very good, however the menu is limited, could use some more choices. It's served perfectly, with all the little touches. Turndown service is excellent and the staff is really there to meet and exceed your expectations. The location is quiet at night and close to north beach, chinatown, ferry building, california street cable car, and union square. The bathroom was huge and gorgeous. You can't go wrong here.

Still a great hotel

from Mblaca
I spent a night at the Meridien, my first stay since it changed from the Park Hyatt. Same quality, comfort and service as under prior management.

Great hotel in need of renovation, not worth the current rates.

from klarkent
I spend over 100 nights a year in hotels, and have spent several in this hotel. I'm sort of a hotel snob. If it were not for the free up grades I recieve at this property I would stay some where else. The service is good to excellent. The concierge desk, bar, and restaurant staff are fantastic, the front desk, bell stand, and housekeeping need some work. Druing the weekends the hotel and this area can be dead.

The rooms are on the dark side, the one that face the city can be dark to gloomy with little or no sunlight. Bay view rooms have wonderful bay views and are much brighter. The decor in the room are on the dark side as well. Hyatt had replaced the carpet, wall paper and added new beds, but the rest of the furnishings are over 20 years old and its shows. The marble bathrooms are luxuious with nice amenities. The lobby bar and lobby need to be renovated, most of the 20 year old furniture shows it age. There is no pool, spa, jacuzzi, or even a restroom near the small gym. Most of the photos you see on the hotel web site are of the newly renovated penthouse suite not the guest rooms.

This is a nice place to stay if you recieve the upgrades and services I get as a frenquent guest. But for the current rates I see posted I would stay some place else. There are several newer or renovated hotels in the city that offer more modern facilities, and services. Most of these hotels are around the same price range or are worth the extra buck. Le Merdian needs to do some major renovation to this property if it expects to keep offering the current high rates. Just a name change alone do not merrit an increase in rates, it's still the same old hotel in need of a face lift.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Take time to really walk along the newly refurbished waterfront-it is amazing The waterfront has benn wonderfully refurbished and is a great place to take a walk.The Ferry building is a food lovers dream and I highly suggest a "Movable feast"dinner sampling different specialities from the various stalls.

For steaks, go to Houston's Houston's is a great restaurant in San Francisco. It's got a great range of steaks and it's rib's are to die for. The desserts are great too. It's not as pricey as Morton's, but the food is better and the vibe a bit more relaxed.

public parking $32 per day I did not utilize Le Meridien's parking valet. The public parking garage 1 block down the street charges only $32 per day.
