The atrium of the Le Meridien seems to be surrounded by glass and is super nice. The Glass elevators and the open center of the hotel really are exquisite! My stay there was my second time – with both times getting bookings with good rates at the airport after arriving. That is not the preferred way to get a hotel – particularly when you may end up waiting 40 minutes for one lady who is indecisive to pick which hotel she will stay at!
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and courteous. What I like about the Le Meridien is that the rooms are big and very comfortable. The large glass enclosed shower is also a great treat because of the ability to take a shower with real water pressure. I was lucky enough to have a room overlooking Orchard and it was just a super room to stay in. If you are there for the weekend – you may also want to partake in their High Tea that they offer – a very unique experience.
The location of the Le Meridien offers the traveler one of the best advantages you can have when staying on Orchard Road because it is near the start of the hotel and shopping complexes and very close to the MRT stop. To get to the front desk of the hotel by cab and the front entrance is one thing – trying to get there from the street is a different story. The bottom floors below the hotel include many different types of shops, bars, pubs, and a few places to eat. But to the side is a hawker center with numerous places to get some great food and wash it down with a Tiger beer. There is also a wonderful outdoor place within 100 meters of the hotel to get roti and curry for breakfast. There is a lot of very good Indonesian and Singaporean food places all around the outside back and side areas of the hotel. Across the street you may just find that Chili crab you were wanting to try.
The hotel has a great swimming pool that is idea for cooling off after a day of exploring Singapore – or from a long flight. They also have a very good gym that is well worth a guest trying out.

The lobby area is huge and surrounded with glass, with two glass elevators each side which are lit up at night and look very impressive; there are lots of orchids around and a pleasant bar area where a pianist plays on several nights. The hotel is above a shopping complex and food hall and has easy access to all areas due to its prime site on Orchard Road. Overall, this is a great hotel and not as expensive as it looks.
