Arrow Le Meridien Philadelphia [Master Thread]

Hi folks,

Given that this is a new property, I figured I'd give a little update.

When I arrived, I pulled up to the front entrance and was greeted by two bellman. Before they took the car away, they asked if I had any valuables in the car, to which I replied, is the car not kept in a garage? Apparently it isn't, as the hotel doesn't have a garage, so it is an open lot. When I asked whether it was safe, the bellman said, "We've been open 5 days and haven't had any breakins." How comforting.

I was upgraded to a suite, which is still rather small, but the decor is really unique, modern - I happen to really like it.

This morning, I was greeted by the business travel manager and someone from corporate, both very nice and eager to hear my thoughts on the hotel. They also picked my brain on my travel patterns.

All in all, very hip place, I have a feeling the bar will become a popular social spot. The fact that the bartender last night looked like a runway model won't hurt business either.

Hope this helps some of you.

Safe travels.
