Centrally located opposite City Hall and Love Park, Le Meridien Philadelphia's a former YMCA that now resembles a 10-story Georgian revival no one would ever mistake for a YMCA, thanks to a sky-lit atrium, a French bistro equipped with iPad menus, and a gym w/ individual flatscreens mounted on every machine. Avoid getting your fingerprints on the glass as you pass through the hotel's arrival portal. Don't just awkwardly stare at the front desk through this portal -- go check in! What's black and white and red all over? Your complimentary newspaper. Also, your room. Just like you when you start hitting on chicks at the bar, their custom luxury pillow-top beds receive complimentary turn-downs. This is a 75ft-high atrium courtyard. Hit Amuse for bistro classics like onion soup gratinee, escargots, and their signature steak frites, any of which can be easily paired with a vino from their iPad wine list. Want more than a cocktail after 10p? The bar also serves French comforts like the fried egg-topped Le Prime Hamburger piled with tomato confit and house-cured pickles til 1a.
