Review: Le Meridien Piccadilly, Mayfair, London, United Kingdom


Getting to the Hotel:

We met our Blacklane driver at the Gatwick exit area. We walked out to a clean Mercedes E200 Touring and we were on our way. It was about 90 minutes drive up to the Piccadilly Circus but the door to door service was pretty much worthwhile over steps, stairs and trains on the Gatwick Express & London Underground routes.

Arriving to the Property:

We arrived to the hotel where we were checked in. Platinum Breakfast was not offered in the restaurant; instead we ended up taking it in the lounge. I had an odd first impression at the check in which continued throughout this stay in that the staff seemed pretty detached. I suspect this was as a result of a high number of travelers through the property.

“An exceptionally centrally located Le Meridien that looks like no other Le Meridien in the chain, thanks to its old historic London building.”

The Room: An Executive Suite

After we were checked in, we led ourselves up to the suite. The suite itself was the oldest looking suite I’ve stayed in for quite some time. Needless to say, I would get to know it quite well.

The suite was configured in an L shape. Immediately on entering the suite, there was a long L shaped hallway with a sitting area on the right. MrsWT73 continued to be coy with the trip reporting photographs.

The sitting area was quite dated. You could describe it as traditional British style. Everywhere else it would be considered as drab. I thought that these wooden tables were relics from my parents houses. LOL.

The bedroom area featured a completely separate area at the end of the hallway. The bedroom was quite dark, as pictured.

The bathroom was just off the bedroom and was tiny. It featured a towel warmer, consistent with many British hotels.

There was a small kettle above the safe in the closet.

Summary:

Unfortunately, I didn’t get many more photographs of the property as I ended up being pretty immobile for the rest of the stay. The Le Meridien Piccadilly’s best feature is the location; immediately within walking distance of all the major tourist sites in London.
